Disappointed by the lack of Paka Paka and Mystery Minis news for 2021 so far

Great things come in mysterious miniature or pint sized packages, but which great thing will it be? It's all a mystery until you open one. Then the fun begins.

Just in case someone here has some pull over at Funko...tell them we need Coffees & Teas Paka Paka! Boba, espresso, latte, green tea, etc, etc..

I need this to happen ASAP. :O

Yes, I thankfully need neither Disney nor Anime minis. Which is just as well since the sodas that I need are coming in HOT right now.

But I really do miss going for minis. I realized the other day that I'd gone to a Target without any of my usual collecting tools. I was so ill prepared! Didn't find any minis in store, which was just as well, honestly, but still a bit of a letdown!

I think the Deadpool ones are due mid-May, so I'll have to start mentally preparing for that one! So far none that I need, but knowing me, once I grab a few, I'll need to complete the set!

I can’t remember the last time target had a fresh box of minis.


I think the last box I saw at Target was for the office? It wasn't a set I was collecting, so I didn't pay much attention to it. Hopefully the next one I see, I'm prepared and it's something I want!

I would really love for Target to start carrying Paka Paka. They have snapsies, not sure why the Pakas aren't getting love!

Edit: just saw deadpool minis at target!

They're pretty scarce here. Paka Pakas are only available at a few places and Snapsies at one


I've so far seen that at Funko Hollywood, and 1 GS. But I haven't really been looking beyond Hollywood, to be honest. Looking forward to finding them at more GS, at least, and expand the hunting grounds!

Yeah, I feel like since they carry Paka Paka, they'd naturally extend to carrying Snapsies

Snapsies seem to be available at most Targets, at least. I tried one. I think that's my limit for Snapsies though. They're cute, but too much work for my taste! lol

The last GS I visited had Office minis, and most of the Paka lines, and that was it. Really surprised, considering how many minis are usually in any given GS! Hopefully that'll change soon and our minis start coming back to us!

I didn't realize that's what it was going to be, but my friend's daughter was very into LOL dolls so when I opened the ball I had flashbacks to the pile of garbage from her unboxings lol

I had to explain the LOL dolls to my hunting buddy when we went looking for the Snapsies. Not gonna lie, I felt a bit smug about buying something Funko and cool, rather than a LOL doll!

Seems like Paka Paka might be dead

Postby sylin » Wed May 05, 2021 10:18 am

I asked a Funko designer on social media about the future of Paka Paka, and their response was just ":(".

So...I guess the line is dead?

That's such a huge shame. I'm actually heartbroken... :(

I wouldn't exactly say a sad emoji from a designer who probably can't comment on something like that means the line is dead.

Lots of new stuff is supposedly coming out this fall.

Entertainment Earth has Paka Paka restocks coming May/June and while they aren't the blind balls, they did announce the t-shirts and plush with Toy Fair stuff this year. Hopefully the frowny face just means they don't really know? Surely Paka Paka didn't already die.

Wasn't there a rumor floating around that Boo Hollow was getting a s.2? And toilet ninjas got t-shirts in store at Funko Hollywood. Plus those Paka machines speak to some commitment, right?

There are so many ways to interpret an emoji - could've just meant we have a bit of a wait for the next line to come out? I'd definitely give a :( if I had to wait until September/October for the next release! Or that designer doesn't work on that particular line and didn't want to be asked a question about it, instead of their own work?

That would be sad if it were true. Paka paka is a fun line. Since they're original designs for the most part it's hard to get people on board. There's no nostalgia factor that the other lines have. It would be nice to see paka paka become more limited in quantity like sodas are. The limited edition to a certain number will surely increase the intrigue of the normal Funko consumer.

Kinda happy with the slow releases. Finally caught up with My Hero Academia MM, and those 1/72s were pricey! :drunken:

100% agree! For a while I felt so overwhelmed with the amount of blind boxes and paka releasing that I felt I couldn’t even breath. Soda is starting to weigh on me the same and I’m ok with some time between drops. I love more stuff and too long between drops is no fun but a nice pace is what I hope all lines have so I can continue to collect most

Exactly this. I love collecting Soda and grabbing new Paka Paka, but it needs to be at an even pace that allows us to keep up without feeling overwhelmed

I think snapsies are definitely designed for a younger audience than I currently am. lol I could totally see buying some for the kid next time I take her to Hollywood, but they're also a bit pricier, so she's definitely not getting as many as she usually does! I like that pakas and minis are roughly the same price, much appreciated!

Yeah, if I'm being honest, I actually kind of enjoyed opening all the little things (at first), but they're just too pricey to buy a bunch

I think snapsies are definitely designed for a younger audience than I currently am. lol I could totally see buying some for the kid next time I take her to Hollywood, but they're also a bit pricier, so she's definitely not getting as many as she usually does! I like that pakas and minis are roughly the same price, much appreciated!

Yeah, if I'm being honest, I actually kind of enjoyed opening all the little things (at first), but they're just too pricey to buy a bunch


The opening is the best part! But then, everything is opened, and you just have a lot of little cute duplicates, and a lot of plastic wrap next to your pile of cute duplicates! lol

So...I guess the line is dead?

That's such a huge shame. I'm actually heartbroken... :(

I think boo hollow series 2 in the works!

Boo Hollow is the standout line for me. Like a home run. Normally I like to get 1 or 2 but I would love to complete the Boo Hollow set.

Boo Hollow was such a great line, I actually just ordered a case of them through my local comic book guy. Had to make sure I completed the set! And honestly, this far down the line - no regrets! It was totally worth it, and I still love them even now! Really hoping that we're correct and a series 2 is in the works!

Minus the excess plastic wrap and you have the plight of all blind bags/boxes/cans lol

I was hoping for new Star Wars minis from the main saga. It is so tough to find minis at retail stores nowadays. Barnes, Walmart, and Target rarely stocks any minis. Hot Topic and Boxlunch stocks just once and they are done.
