Do You Have a Funkeys Website or Blog?

I posted some links a few days back and there has been a lot of traffic flowing to those Funkeys Blogs. I've heard some nice things about the increased visits, so I was thinking about creating a "Funkeys Links" page and list more to help others out.

If you run a site or blog that focuses on U.B.Funkeys and you want it listed, please PM me (augiewan) on the forum with the information listed below. Do this even if I listed you before! If you focus on a couple things (such as Funkeys and Club Penguin) that's fine but make sure to mention that in your PM. This isn't open to a general blog that mentions Funkeys once in a while, sorry...

If you know of someone who runs one, let them know about this so they can be included!

DON'T POST THE INFO IN A COMMENT HERE! Send me a PM in the forum...

So here's what I need in the PM:

1) Your nickname you want listed as the person running the site.
2) The URL (address) of the site/blog.
3) Is the site entirely devoted to Funkeys or is it split with something else?
4) If it's split with something else, what is it? (bionicle, club penguin, etc...)

That should do it! :)

Follow U.B.Funkeys @ - FINALLY!

I've been getting requests to set up a "follow-me" feature for all the blogger account folks out there. For a long time, that was only available to blogger sites that were actually hosted on the site. I'm not exactly sure when they changed that, but at some point in the recent past, Google (who owns Blogger) created a widget so that folks like me with their own domain could tie in to the "follow-me" feature of Blogger. Those of you with no Blogger account that want to follow can also do so using your Google account. So here it is! Follow! Follow! And you over there... FOLLOW! lol.. :)

I'll add the widget in this post, but you can also join or see those following at the bottom of any page. Have fun...

Funkeys Babble 2008-2009 - RIP (2.0 on the way)

It’s hard for me to admit defeat, but the Funkeys Babble forum suffered a tragic end today. The database is completely corrupt and the hosting service I use does not allow for the replacement of a database that large from backup.

I do plan to re-instate a forum here, and hope to have at least a general area to converse in by the end of the night. User accounts will need to be re-created, so everyone please avoid using usernames that you know others were using here. I’m going to allow those who had them the first time keep them based on e-mail address, so if you make one that someone else already has claim to, you’ll lose it and have to choose a new name.

I’ll update you all as I have news. Tonight as I said before will be very basic. I’ll add the categories and the look & feel of the old forum as I get time this week.

Sorry all, I’m just as disappointed as the rest of you. This was my baby…

Purchasing U.B.Funkeys Online

I've just reworked the entire "Purchasing Funkeys" page. The goal was to make it less confusing, though I'm not sure that's what happened! D'oh!

I've started by giving direct links to eBay and for each individual Funkey available. I plan to expand this to include other sites including those from the UK. Hope you like!

Ouch! Funkeys Babble Forum Back in Action After Outage

Sorry to all those who were trying to get in to the UBFunkeys Babble Forum or who were just coming for Funkeys updates! Our host server seems to have had something bad for breakfast and theSpeakEasy was down for while this afternoon. It’s disappointing that it happened, but then again it was a first after hosting with the company for many years. Working in an Internet related field, I happen to know first-hand that things don’t run smoothly ALL the time.

So with that said, welcome to those who are just discovering the site and welcome back to all those returning. Sorry to those who had to munch on antacids while they wondered if the site was coming back... (a certain someone from Guam maybe?) Sorry, inside joke...

Just a quick update to let you all know that the Speed Racer Funkeys' Character Bios have been added to the characters page. There are also small image galleries for each character on those pages. There will be more added, but I wanted to let you know they were up...

Also a big thanks to webgopher for typing out the bios for me! Those new pages would have taken me forever to get up without the help...

Funkeys Images and Forum Facelift

I had a little spare time today, so I went ahead and did a little sprucing up in the forum. I've gotten some positive feedback so far so yeah for me!

I've also successfully posted small image galleries to each character page now. I still have plenty of other images to use in creating an "Image Gallery" as well, but at least the character pages have a little more meat to them now.

New Image to Share, Funkeys Forum, Funkeys Checklist, and Speed Racer Funkeys...

OK, it's pretty sad that I haven't been able to update this part of the site more, but things are very active on the new Funkeys Forum, so if you haven't joined yet, click here and join in!

So to give you all "something" new, here's another propaganda image from our Mattel insider. Hmm... that sounds so "blah", we really need to come up with a code name for them. Any thoughts?

I've also realized that since I haven't really finished the whole design of the site, there are people looking for specific things that are having trouble so here are a couple handy links until I get the navigation finished up:

1) For those looking for the Funkeys Checklist which is a printable list (with images) of all the Series 1 and 2 Funkeys, you can find the original post here. Also to note, I'm hoping to get enough info from our source to update the list to include the Speed Racer figures.

2) For those looking for the Speed Racer Funkeys information, here's the post with the most up to date info...

That's all for now. Have a good one!

New source of information from Mattel

It's been a little while since the blog has been updated, but it's been pretty exciting on this end. In addition to watching the Funkeys Forum start to come to life, we've been in contact with a source from Mattel who has shared some things with us. We're still trying to figure out how to use the images and information on the site, but we will definitely make sure to share it all! As a teaser, here to the left is a "propaganda" image from Tarrapinia. Click on it to see a larger view...

One thing that they have agreed to is to allow us to gather questions from all of you and compile a list of four or five at a time (maybe every 2 to 3 weeks) that we feel represent what's on everyone's minds at the time. They will then send us the answers to post to the site. More details on that later, but for now feel free to sign up for the forum and add your questions here for consideration...

Later all....

New U.B.Funkeys Forum!

I tried to get this up and running yesterday evening, but I didn't get very far in customizing the look and feel. I would have preferred to get it all nice and perfect before letting all you Funkey Monkeys loose, but I just can't see me getting back to it until the weekend. Things are busy enough at work that I'll be spending my free evenings working. That on top of the fact that many of you are starting to chat away on this blog section tells me you really want somewhere to talk about the game!

So with no further ado, I present to you the UBFunkeys Babble Forum...

Go! Sign up! Babble!

Official Speed Racer Funkeys Update

I've been in contact with someone inside Mattel who has clarified that the release date on the Speed Racer UBFunkeys series that is on is incorrect. The actual release date is not set exactly yet, but is figured for the month of March 2008. I'm sure that this will be a bit of a disappointment to some, but with as many of the already release figures still missing from my collection, I'm a bit relieved. If they saturate the market too fast, it could backfire on them with people getting frustrated.

I was also given the official list of characters for Series 1...

Wave 1: Speed Racer, Chim-Chim, Cannonball Taylor, Trixie, Snake Oiler, Racer X

Wave 2: Speed Racer v2, Taejo

Keep checking back. We will continue to get new Funkeys updates from our new contact! :)

Now Announcing the Wasabi Character Page


Originally from the shivery ice flow region, the Flurry are very cool under pressure making them the shrewdest negotiators in Terrapinia. It is said, they literally have ice water flowing through their veins. Legendary for their ability to sell anything to anyone, it is rumored that the Flurry even sold butter to the Boggle...

For more information about the Wasabi, click on the image or simply click here for the Wasabi page.

The Sprout Character Page is Ready to Go


The Sprout are always precisely prim, particularly proper and the most purely polite of all of the Funkeys. The Sprout have perfectly manicured lawns, elaborate gardens and showpiece homes...

For more information about the Sprout, click on the image or simply click here for the Sprout page.

Labels: ,

Tiki Character Page Has Been Added as Well


The Tiki are believed to be the first Funkeys to inhabit Terrapinia. All other Funkeys evolved from the Tiki. The first Tiki crawled out of the primordial soup and walked on land over a million years ago...

For more information about the Tiki, click on the image or simply click here for the Tiki page.

Labels: ,

The Xener Character Page is Now Up


Xener means traveler in Funkey. In the late 40th century, Funkeys were obsessed with space travel. They spent millions of coins on missions that accomplished very little. The last flight mission crashed and remains intact to remind them of this frivolous program but the Xener still believe that space travel is the final frontier...
