Another Blow to the Funkeys Faithful

Mattel has closed the official forums on I don't frequent there, so I'm not sure how recently this was done, but it couldn't have been that long ago.

I fear that whatever the people on the support lines are being told to say, the writing is on the wall at this point.

I haven't been able to get any feedback from our friend Funk-E at Mattel in quite a long time either. I think Mattel is handling this all pretty poorly really after all the time and money the fans have put in to Funkeys.

The fact that Paradox Green was so poorly launched with the color/rarity variations not being available and the Game Creator function never really working to it's full potential that was promised on the packaging, I really thought Mattel would stand behind their product and make an effort to right what they did wrong. Release at least one correct and functional series and see if they could regain the sales and user level they had achieved.

I'm sad about this. For one, I welcome anyone to the forums here that has come from the official site. I hope you find that it is warm and inviting.

I have no plans to stop running this site as long as there are Funkeys Fans wanting to use it. Long live Funkeys!

I also think that the timing is so bad! The Wendy's UB Funkey toys brought a lot of new Funkey fans to the game and this is what they find. Really I don't get it at all!
I also am wondering if at some point we won't be able to play the game anymore. I just love this game. Two years on I still love to play and I am so frustrated and disappointed!!

Hi, we just got Funkeys starter pack for christmas with a extra funkey Sol. Sol won't work until we have downloaded series 5 paradox green. We have tried to download this onto our windows XP 5 times but nothing. Any suggestions? It also seems to take 3 times longer than the time stipulated through a fast coneection.

Hey drimz, is there literally nothng on your screen or what? in order to go different places and play different things, you gotta buy the different funkeys. each funkey has its own area. the updates are just patches for when they release a new zone. if you are done with the series 5 patch, you ARE up to date, you just need to go out and start buying funkeys.

Radica and what not are probably saving money or endead shuting down the funkeys. This can't happen if they are going to do dc then that must be a big hit to continue the funkeys. WOW i'm being dramatic today.

My mom was helping my little brother install funkeys on his laptop, and was talking to a tech rep (windows vista, blah)and she asked about the windows 7 update, since she got a new computer windows 7 on it, and he told her that there will not be a windows 7 patch!!
