Dream State Wave 2 Starting to Show Up
There were two Tank
figures on eBay earlier today, though last time I checked, one had already been nabbed with a "buy it now". I've also been getting contacted today by various people claiming to be seeing them at Target this weekend. Although you can't trust every report, the fact they are starting to show up on eBay confirms that they are starting to hit. The second wave consists of Berger
, and Sprocket
Feel free to check for them on eBay by clicking on the images below...
Update: Here are some images to help make this "official"...

That's right, for the first time (so far) a San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Dot Funkey topped the $100.00 mark on eBay. Well, if you include shipping it did. The closing bid was $97.73 plus $6 for shipping! See the listing here...
I guess this is good news for those who own one (or two) from the show and want to sell them for a quick profit, but it doesn't bode well for those who have been hoping to see the price come down so they can have one to use in the U.B.Funkeys game.
It's still not entirely clear if/when the other two color variations of Dot (yellow and green) will be released or how limited they will be, but for now the 2000 red Dot Funkeys are getting harder and harder to come by.
One small ray of light is the fact that we have secured an extra Dot here at theSpeakEasy and plan to give it away soon. We'll run a contest to see who gets it, so keep checking back and we'll post the details soon!
If the contest doesn't sound like your cup of tea but you really want one, you can see if there are any active Dot listings on eBay right now...Feel free to discuss this here in the forum...

U.B.Funkeys Hidden Realm Color Variations
The updates to the official site added the above two teaser images for Hidden Realm, including two rarity colors for the Yeti (Light Blue and Pink)and the YinYang (Green and Red) Funkeys. Adding the images we've already seen of the prototypes at SDCC 2008 and the side image from the Dream State starter, we see the following possible variants...
Green/Black - official site
Red/Black - official site
Green/Dark Blue - SDCC
White/Green w/very different look - DS package
White/Blue - official site
White/Pink - official site
Green/Tan - SDCC
White/Blue w/different expression - DS package
Orange/White - official site
Green/White - SDCC
White/Red - w/very different look* - DS package
* I feel that this was likely an early design for what turned out to be the tiger design based on it's similar "tiger/sabertooth" family feel. I could be wrong.
Blue/Orange - official site
Red/Orange - SDCC
White/Red - w/very different look# - DS package
# I feel that this was likely an early design for what turned out to be the dragon design based on the flower design that was once on the face and now on the dragon's belly. I could be wrong.
Discuss it here in the forum!

Signed on just a bit ago and downloaded the 3.1 update for Daydream Oasis. It was another big update, so if you don't have a good connection be prepared to wait a while. I'll look around and post more about it later...

New Black Dream State UB Hub in the UK
Funk-E had hinted (in installment #2
) that there would be another color variation of the Dream State UB hub , and it looks as though it has landed in the UK first! Darktwinx, a member on the forum ordered it from a UK based site called Argos, and sent me an image to post. You can order it here
, but only if you live in the UK for now.

Dream State 4-Packs Discovered
Last night at Toys R Us, I stumbled by a Dream State 4-Pack that I didn't even know existed. Of course they were all the common versions of each figure; Waggs
, and Drift
. Heh, wouldn't THAT be a find to get a 4-Pack of all Rares or Very Rares.
So for those who don't have any of them yet, this could be a great way to jump in to Dream State. It was $22.99 at TRU which isn't a great price for four singles, but at the ridiculous TRU exchange rate of $7.99 per single Funkey, it's a relative savings.
Anyway, I left it there but I took a picture with my phone!

Dream State Singles, Chat Packs, and Funkeys Speakers!
I finally found some of the new stuff myself this weekend! On Friday, I scored a pair of the Funkey Speakers that look like Scratch. I also saw the Lotus flash drive, but decided to wait on that until later. I'll be hooking them up at work tomorrow to see how they sound. I doubt they'll sound all that fantastic, but that's not the point of these babies and I don't exactly crank up the music at the office... :)
Also, I found the four chat funkeys and well as two Dream State singles, Vlurp and Rare Ptep. Here's a shot of my Dream State Funkeys so far...
They are finally getting a little easier to find. I've seen posts about them now showing at Target, Walmart, Meijers, and K-Mart...
