Very Rare Paradox Figures, Something Is Very Wrong

So I've been watching the Paradox Green figures on eBay so far (or I guess I should just call them Series 5 since two of them are labeled as Hidden Realm) and I know I can't be the only one wondering why in the world they've all been the Very Rare versions so far? I'm not saying that "a lot" of them are the Very Rare, "ALL" of them have been so far.

Take a look. Here are links to each of the four figures out so far on eBay right now. As of the time I'm writing this, here are the counts:

Nectar: Common: 0 - Rare: 0 - Very Rare: 11

Tadd: Common: 0 - Rare: 0 - Very Rare: 8

Rastro: Common: 0 - Rare: 0 - Very Rare: 12

Maul: Common: 0 - Rare: 0 - Very Rare: 14

So what's up?

This could be very very bad in the later run....Could make the Very Rares VERY hard to get in the stores once they hit everywhere. Seems there might/must have been a mix up in shipments; shipping more VRs than regualars as it should be.
Kinda saddening; as far as I know Series 5/Paradox hasn't even reached my area yet.

I'm not sure. You can't even get very rare items from them! This is very wrong.

Well what I've found out is that only kmarts in Chicago Illinois have been getting them. And that they were put on the shelvs early by accident. Thats why just recently there was a small update that let you get the trophy and money from playing with those funkeys because PG wasn't expected to go out yet but Mattel was forced to put out the update because people were getting a hold of them.
And probably the very rares were first shipped to the stores so they could be put out little by little. And maybe kmart isn't getting any other shipments than that and because everyone is grabbing them, there is no other choice but to keep putting out what funkeys they have on the shelves.

Dunno. Maybe all of the stores screwed up.
I think mulch and ace will be like the Multiplayer Funkeys like last year... they'll come out later in the fall.

This is very confusing. Maybe there was a mix up and all the series 5 funkeys were painted Very Rare, including common and rare! Or something similar to that, such as all of them are common, but they are painted very rare? I don't know, I am starting to confuse myself. But I agree, this is weird.

Why they say hidden realm because you can use them in the oni dojo

Only the VRs are at the Target stores in the NorthEast & MidAtlantic - that might be where the eBay sharks are getting them...

I've gotten the Paradox Green Funkeys and I don't use eBay or even live near Chicago... Could the rarities have been flipped around... :S

I have been wondering about that also & the fact that they are only found at Kmart so far... IMO I think that Mattel is hitting the small stores in the small towns & putting out the VRs to help them out(stores & players)

I forgot to mention in the last post that there also some rare Tadds & Rastros showing up on eBay too... well there was last night but it is gone now - I didn't bid on it as was $19.99 & didn't want to spend more money since I won the VR's

Good point. We'll just have to wait.

Three rares are blue one is green... The entries you showed on the forum were just more VRs...

They hit the stores (Target at least) in Arizona. So far I've ONLY seen Very Rares, no Rares or normals. That was at 5 stores that I checked total. And I haven't seen Ace or Mulch yet.

I got three very rare PG funkeys at Target in Oregon 2 days ago. I checked 3 Targets and a Kmart and only one Target had the PG funkeys. I got the last three on the shelves.

I got the last two pg funkeys on the shelves at one of the Targets in Florida about a week ago. I posted a comment about them when I got them, but it didn't show up. They are, of course, both very rare. Rastro and Maul were the ones I got, and then My friend got Rastro and Nectar in another Target the same day.

Ah, but look at how much attention this is getting... The UB Marketing Department must be grinning ear to ear...

I got all four new VR colored singles; packaging didn’t indicate rarity-- so I too wonder if they were painted wrong. But as I plug them onto the Hub they promptly appeared in the same VR colors onscreen. If the Funkeys were just painted wrong, they hub would have recognized normal color and displayed that.

8/21 Friday: My West Texas Target had 5 paradox Green Funkeys-all rare. I asked the worker if they had more (my little sons likes the colors better!) and he checked the stockroon and said they are packed/arrive 5 to a box- and they only received the one box! I agree this is strange!

My daughter works for K-Mart and she just found these four for me. And, like everyone else, they are the VRs! So, even two months after the release, the standard and rare versions aren't available.
