Another Blow to the Funkeys Faithful
Mattel has closed the official forums on ubfunkeys.com. 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!
