First U.B.Funkeys Image from Toy Fair 2008

That's right, we have located our first Funkeys image out there posted on the Internet from the New York Toy Fair 2008! It was found on the New York Daily News site and was first reported in our Forum early this morning by "Roxxxxxxx", who seems to always have a leg up on all of us finding Funkeys news posted online...

UBFunkeys at the NY Toy Fair

What we do know about the Funkeys in this image is the following...

1) The two in blue packaging on the left are from the upcoming Speed Racer series due out this spring.

2)The rest shown are from the big Series three summer release, at least some of which will be called "Dream State".

3) As we've discussed a little in a previous post, the summer release will add new interactive functionality to the game.

4) The two-pack shown in front on the right says "1 Funkey, 1 MultiPlayer", so that seems to imply that at least some of the new functionality will be limited to specific characters which will please parents that are concerned about their children being able to interact with others they may not know.

5) Of all the characters in the summer release that we can confirm from this picture, we do know the name of at least two of them. Sprocket and Drift are seen in the starter pack, shown with a UB hub.

6) For the first time, we see a character that is not from the same mold as the rest of the Funkeys. It looks to be a parrot of some sort.

If you see any more images posted around, let us know!

Feel free to discuss this here in the forum...
