First U.B.Funkeys Image from Toy Fair 2008

That's right, we have located our first Funkeys image out there posted on the Internet from the New York Toy Fair 2008! It was found on the New York Daily News site and was first reported in our Forum early this morning by "Roxxxxxxx", who seems to always have a leg up on all of us finding Funkeys news posted online...

UBFunkeys at the NY Toy Fair

What we do know about the Funkeys in this image is the following...

1) The two in blue packaging on the left are from the upcoming Speed Racer series due out this spring.

2)The rest shown are from the big Series three summer release, at least some of which will be called "Dream State".

3) As we've discussed a little in a previous post, the summer release will add new interactive functionality to the game.

4) The two-pack shown in front on the right says "1 Funkey, 1 MultiPlayer", so that seems to imply that at least some of the new functionality will be limited to specific characters which will please parents that are concerned about their children being able to interact with others they may not know.

5) Of all the characters in the summer release that we can confirm from this picture, we do know the name of at least two of them. Sprocket and Drift are seen in the starter pack, shown with a UB hub.

6) For the first time, we see a character that is not from the same mold as the rest of the Funkeys. It looks to be a parrot of some sort.

If you see any more images posted around, let us know!

Feel free to discuss this here in the forum...

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!

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! :)

13 days and Counting – Speed Racer Funkeys!

Of course the 13 days is based solely on the release date posted on, so it’s possibly still going to be longer. There’s been no word elsewhere that I can find.

What we do know is that there will be 8 characters as Funkeys and one new USB hub. Only one color or rarity has been seen of any given character so far, and most of those have only been illustrations, so multiple rarities of each character doesn’t seem to be supported by the evidence. Also unknown is if there will be a CD with any special new optional software to load or if it will be the same U.B.Funkeys install CD. If not, there will have to at least be a new update that the software will download once they are released since we also know there will be an optional “garage” crib.

My best guesses for the characters based on the number 8 and the fact that this release is likely meant to be a marketing tie to the 2008 Speed Racer movie is as follows:

Confirmed Characters: (see earlier post with images)
Racer X, Chim Chim, Speed, Snake Oiler, and Taejo Togokhan

Other likely contenders:
Trixie, Mr. Musha, and Minx

Other possible characters:
Mom Racer, Pops Racer, Rex Racer, Inspector Detector, Ben Burns, Spritle, and Sparky

Don’t forget, you can pre-order the starter pack with the exclusive hub and the Racer X and Speed Funkeys here!New Speed Racer Funkeys Starter Set I've got mine pre-ordered, do you? :)

More Images of Speed Racer Series U.B.Funkeys

Doing a bit more hunting, I came by some images of the Speed Racer Funkeys display that were taken at the 2007 San Diego Comicon by the folks over at

This looks like it's going to be interesting. I'm curious how they'll intermix the storyline of the game. They've already stated that the figures will be compatible.

Anyway like I mentioned in the last post, you can pre-order the Speed Racer starter kit on
