Official Speed Racer Funkeys Update

I've been in contact with someone inside Mattel who has clarified that the release date on the Speed Racer UBFunkeys series that is on is incorrect. The actual release date is not set exactly yet, but is figured for the month of March 2008. I'm sure that this will be a bit of a disappointment to some, but with as many of the already release figures still missing from my collection, I'm a bit relieved. If they saturate the market too fast, it could backfire on them with people getting frustrated.

I was also given the official list of characters for Series 1...

Wave 1: Speed Racer, Chim-Chim, Cannonball Taylor, Trixie, Snake Oiler, Racer X

Wave 2: Speed Racer v2, Taejo

Keep checking back. We will continue to get new Funkeys updates from our new contact! :)

Oh that stinks! I have all of series 1 and two of series 2 so I was hoping to start the speed racer ones some time this month. I think March is too late. I think they underestimate the speed of which kids will blow through these games.

I agree that the kids get through the games fast, but they could ease that pain a bit by having periodic updates to the game itself through downloads. (new games, hidden areas, etc...)

The issue that people like me have could be alleviated a bit by getting the distribution more even. I seriously have yet to see a single new (past the original 7 tribes) Funkey figure in southern Michigan. I hit Walmart almost daily. I also hit 2 other Walmart locations, a Target, and a Toys R Us weekly. If I had the chance to buy them and keep up with faster release schedules, I would! :)

i agree with the distribution piece. it's gotten to the point where if i am near a target or walmart at all, i have to at least go in and see if they've been able to restock them. i would flat out refuse to go to toys r us and limited too because of the higher prices, but so far, i have been able to find 3 of my very rares that i didn't find at any walmart or target, and my local kmart doesn't carry them.

I lost my game on funkeys after downloading the speed racer. It didnt work properly and stoped me getting into my other funkeys games and it froze all the time. So i uninstalled the game and started again.
When i load a new game from the start its ok until i put my funkiki island funkeys on. it starts to load the speed racer. when complete and i go into the game i cant access everything properly and areas are missing. I have been trying to sort this all weekend. Any1 know how i can fix this???
