Looking Back at Paradox Green

I didn't end up having the kind of time in 09 that I had hoped to spend on this site and enjoying Funkeys with my youngest son. Between our lack of playing time, and the over-all lack of Funkeys news I never really got around to talking much about the new feature we got with Paradox Green.

Which is sad, because the Game Creator tools that are opened up with Ace and Mulch are probably one of the coolest thing they've introduced since the initial launch of U.B.Funkeys. So please, feel free to comment here about what you liked (or disliked) about the new feature. What would you like to see them do to expand the feature if we do see further expansion of the Funkeys universe in 2010?

Calm Before the Funkeys Storm?

It's been quiet on the Funkeys front. Very very quiet...

For those who are still trying to fill in the holes of your collection while waiting for the next series, I've noticed that the Target Exclusive Funkeys Plushies have become a LOT cheaper to pick up on eBay! Other stuff you can round up pretty cheap over there on eBay right now are the Funkeys Speakers,the Funkeys Flash Drives and the Funkeys Storage Cases, all of which were Target Exclusives as well.

The bright spot in the lull is that there IS a new series coming this summer. As we know, it's Paradox Green and it looks like it's going to be pretty cool. The game creation aspect (Game Factory) could really help with the fact that some of you play through the games so fast you get bored waiting for the next series. With the game creation aspect of Paradox Green, everyone should be able to keep each other interested and entertained by creating their own games to share! :) Hmmm... Once we know how it works, we'll need to add a new area to the forum to support all the "check out my new game" posts.

As many have already brought up, the Paradox Green Funkeys are being pre-sold at Entertainment Earth. You can click below to check them out...

If you choose to pre-order them, I'd love to hear back from some of you when you get them! I'm curious how long they take to get them out once they start showing up...

U.B. Funkeys Paradox Green Propaganda Posters

Funk-E has been nice enough to supply us with larger, clearer versions of the "Paradox Green" series of propaganda posters we all first saw on Mayor Sayso's Facebook account. They are some really neat looking poster images based on the upcoming (yet to be officially named) series 5 and they've been creating quite buzz for the past week or so on a lot Funkeys blogs.

Each highlights one new Funkey Tribe from the coming series and all three have two common pieces of text. One is "Paradox Green" and the other is "This message has been approved by Mayor Sayso". While Funk-E was happy to share these images with us, we are still as "in the dark" as the rest of you regarding what any of this means.

The first up is the one featuring the "green" or "recycle" Funkey that caught a lot of folks attention a few weeks back when we posted the images from the Consumer Electronics Show. This little recycle Funkey with the crazy new head shape has a lot of people drooling for the new series.

Click on the image for a larger version...

For a SUPER huge version, click here... (2.35MB)

Check back in the coming days for the other two!

PS: Keep in mind that the next series we can all expect will be the DC Superheroes & Villains series this coming spring. Series 5 will be later in 2009...

U.B. Funkeys Game Factory Tool Announced

The following blurb is from a new press release from Mattel reviewing some of the coming 2009 Fall releases...

U.B. FUNKEYS Game Factory Tool

U.B. Funkeys is a popular PC-based interactive game where vinyl toy collecting meets casual gaming. The U.B. Funkeys virtual world continues to expand as players collect figures and interact through in-game activities and challenges. The Game Factory tool enhances the user experience by allowing kids to unlock new gaming functionality within the U.B. Funkeys world. With each 2 Game Factory figures, kids can create their own U.B. Funkeys online game and post it to where friends can play and rank their game.

UB Funkeys Game Factory Tool is designed for kids 8+ and will be available this Fall. Pricing is not yet determined.

This could get interesting! Hopefully they'll get it well tested before launch-time. :)
