Taejo (Speed Racer) U.B.Funkeys Figure on eBay
We were all disappointed last year when it was announced that the Speed Racer Series of U.B.Funkeys was not going to be completed and that the second wave was on hold (later to be canceled). Thanks to the lack-luster performance of the movie and sales of the toys, the license was a bust and Mattel/Radica needed to cut their losses.
Fast forward to last week and some saw a listing on eBay for a group of used Funkeys that included what looked to be a Taejo Funkey or at least what looked to be a REALLY good fake. I'm assuming a little here, but the winner of that auction is likely the one who this week is now selling a Taejo on eBay. They claim to have played it and claim that it works...
The description reads:
YOU ARE BIDDING ON ONE U.B. FUNKEY SPEED RACER TAEJO
ULTRA RARE - NEVER OFFICIALLY RELEASED
IT DOES EXIST AND IT DOES WORK, I HAVE PLAYED IT, BUT COULD NOT GET INSANE HIGH SCORE
Bid at your own risk, but this seller does have really good feedback, so I have a hard time believing that they are lying about it. I'm just really curious how this got out on the market...
