I'm not really sure. They were a little bit before I started collecting Funko. I've seen some really neat ones that I'd like to have in my collection. My guess is, the line simply ran its course and was shelved to make room for new concepts.

They never really got the love they deserved, right around Blox failing pops were taking off so I would guess Funko just shifted all their efforts to Team Pop.

I still love them and have mine though.

people dodnt really care about them when they came out.. but i have seen a big resurgence in them as of late. I have seen more and more hauls including blox lately. I personally thin they are pretty damn cool.

Every time I look at my Boxos I get sad knowing that I can’t add any more to my collection. I would be so happy to see those and Blox minis return!!

I think even some of the people working at funko were unimpressed with Blox. They were not popular and sat on the shelves. They were also really heavy and therefore expensive to ship (solid vinyl). When Pop! came out around the same time and were far more popular and easy to get to customers, Blox were discontinued.

I like them a lot. I don't have all of them but I do have the Disney line.

I loved the Blox line, never got the love they deserved.
Hopefully something similar will come along down the line.

The worlds preference changed from lines to curves so things like Blox never really got traction hahaha just kidding imagine if it was something like that though.

I agree. I liked them. Not sure why they didn't take off. Maybe they were a little bit too big.

Same. The style was different and it’s why I liked them so much :)
I recently acquired a regular Batman one OOB, which has me looking for the Metallic SDCC one now lol

I hope they come back with a new line based off of blox, because I really need a Robin, and Batgirl to go with my Batman. [-o<

People would often damage the boxes shaking them to see if they could suss out the ones they were looking for. I think enough time has passed where they should try them again. I always liked the idea.

Blox are my favorite Funko line ever. They totally didn't get the love that they deserved. I liked the mini blox too, and am a bit suprised that they didn't do better. The cereal ad icon blox are my all time favorite Funko pieces!
