Cruncher Block and Royalton up for grabs on eBay AGAIN
U.B.Funkeys Rare Treasures on eBay
Well I've been sleeping on the job! Sorry all, just caught these gems on eBay last night and realized that just about every other Funkeys site had already reported on them...
Click the images to see them on eBay...
Someone obviously either had access to some prelim figures in Asia or access to the display figures from a toy trade show. They have some great looking Funkeys up for auction right now. My only question is whether these guys even have chips in their feet. I'm guessing no, but I could be wrong.
The obvious ones to point out are the Speed Racer characters Taejo
, Cruncher Block
, and Royalton
. Another of note is a blue Maul

Wendy's Kid's Meal Funkeys Toys
As the campaign for U.B.Funkeys winds down at Wendy's the toys are starting to trickle in at eBay
. I for one don't have a Wendy's very close so I'll be going to the ol "after market" myself. I see that there are currently a few full sets of all five toys as well as some singles being sold through eBay Stores...
Check them out on eBay...

Funkeys Game Creators Mulch and Ace on eBay
Just got word overnight from the forum's Funkikiflurry that Ace and Mulch were on eBay. Sure enough I checked and there is currently one Mulch listing
and one Ace listing
. Both are set to end on August 1st. Hopefully we'll be seeing them all in stores soon! :)

Paradox Green Figures are Finally Here!
earlier and "Bam!", there they were. Then they were gone! :( Yeah, Paradox Green Funkeys were on eBay, the VERY RARE versions of both Tadd
and they sold via "Buy It Now" for $24.99 each. The seller was either in a hurry to make some money or didn't realize how much more they would have likely gotten if they had left them up for bidding. They always go crazy high at first...
Anyway, this is what many of us have been waiting for! The floodgates will likely open soon on eBay for those who don't have good distribution nearby. I seriously still haven't found any multiplayer Dream State figures in the store but one time. Of course the TWO they had were both ones I had already broken down and purchased on eBay months after being released. But enough about me! Check to see if there are Paradox Funkeys on eBay now!
Interestingly, the seller was out of Chicago this time. Might be a good idea to keep an eye open in that area. :) These are the ones that sold already...

U.B.Funkeys Promotional T-Shirt with Sprocket
As many of the forum members know, I scored a U.B.Funkeys T-Shirt last year that was part of a short run for promotional purposes. It is black and sports an awesome Sprocket design. Now just to be clear, this auction I came by on eBay is not mine! I LOVE mine and wear it often.
The auction is for a brand new (unworn) XL Size of the same shirt. If you're looking for a unique shirt and love Funkeys, this is the one for you!Click here to check out the auction on eBay or click the image below...

Taejo (Speed Racer) U.B.Funkeys Figure on eBay
We were all disappointed last year when it was announced that the Speed Racer Series of U.B.Funkeys was not going to be completed and that the second wave was on hold (later to be canceled). Thanks to the lack-luster performance of the movie and sales of the toys, the license was a bust and Mattel/Radica needed to cut their losses.
Fast forward to last week and some saw a listing on eBay for a group of used Funkeys that included what looked to be a Taejo Funkey
or at least what looked to be a REALLY good fake. I'm assuming a little here, but the winner of that auction is likely the one who this week is now selling a Taejo on eBay
. They claim to have played it and claim that it works...
The description reads:
YOU ARE BIDDING ON ONE U.B. FUNKEY SPEED RACER TAEJO
ULTRA RARE - NEVER OFFICIALLY RELEASED
IT DOES EXIST AND IT DOES WORK, I HAVE PLAYED IT, BUT COULD NOT GET INSANE HIGH SCOREBid at your own risk
, but this seller does have really good feedback, so I have a hard time believing that they are lying about it. I'm just really curious how this got out on the market...

The Hidden Realm Funkeys have started showing up on eBay
, so they'll be hitting shelves around the US soon. If you're an impatient collector, feel free to pay way too much for them right now...

Buying Funkeys Online and Support theSpeakEasy!
OK, I don't usually post things this direct and "spammy" but U.B.Funkeys news is a bit dry right now and I'm behind (again) on getting new custom Funkeys pages ready to post and wanted to post "something".
So since we are coming up on a period of mass spending in the US and many other countries, I thought I'd take this opportunity to point out the "Where to Buy Funkeys" page
on this site. It's a simple guide to help locate the Funkeys you want and the added bonus for us here is that purchases made after following the links on that page help in a small way to support the hosting and maintenance of this site.
OK, I feel all slimy now for doing that, and I promise you won't see another post like it in QUITE a while!!!
On a Funkeys note, from everything we've ben hearing, the first Hidden Realm Funkeys may very well be hitting the shelves in mid to late December! :)

Funkeys Poster Found on eBay
Looking through the eBay listings today, I came by a UBFunkeys poster that was apparently given out at the SDCC.
The down side to it is that it is a "bonus" item in an auction for a Dot figure, which usually always goes for over $100!
Too bad, because I'd love to get that poster...

Plush Funkeys, Funkeys Waterbottle, and Funkeys Mousepad
There is a recent increase in U.B.Funkeys related merchandise popping up. The biggest news regarding official merchandise is the fact that the plush line of Funkeys has started showing up in Target stores! Though they are not selling them on Target.com, they are making their way on to eBay now.
Also showing up on eBay are some promotional items that look to have been given away earlier this year at the San Diego Comic Con. There is currently a water bottle featuring an image of Tank for sale here...
There was also a Funkeys mousepad
that just sold a few days ago...

Sprocket and Lucky on eBay
There were a few of the Sprocket
2-packs on eBay a couple days ago, and now a fresh new round is up from a different seller
, so they are definitely starting to show up. Here are a few images including a VR Sprocket!

New Funkeys Multiplayer Starter with Sprocket
There's a new version on the Dream State starter on ebay with 5 Dream State Funkeys included called the Multiplayer Starter. The first four (that most of us already have) and Sprocket
. Would have been nice to see at least a couple of the new Multiplayer Funkeys in it, but either way I'll be waiting for the singles. It's only being offered by one seller so far and they currently have 5 of them listed.
Update: More sellers have them now, so I've changed the link accordingly...Check out the eBay listings here...

Dream State Wave 2 Starting to Show Up
There were two Tank
figures on eBay earlier today, though last time I checked, one had already been nabbed with a "buy it now". I've also been getting contacted today by various people claiming to be seeing them at Target this weekend. Although you can't trust every report, the fact they are starting to show up on eBay confirms that they are starting to hit. The second wave consists of Berger
, and Sprocket
Feel free to check for them on eBay by clicking on the images below...
Update: Here are some images to help make this "official"...

That's right, for the first time (so far) a San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Dot Funkey topped the $100.00 mark on eBay. Well, if you include shipping it did. The closing bid was $97.73 plus $6 for shipping! See the listing here...
I guess this is good news for those who own one (or two) from the show and want to sell them for a quick profit, but it doesn't bode well for those who have been hoping to see the price come down so they can have one to use in the U.B.Funkeys game.
It's still not entirely clear if/when the other two color variations of Dot (yellow and green) will be released or how limited they will be, but for now the 2000 red Dot Funkeys are getting harder and harder to come by.
One small ray of light is the fact that we have secured an extra Dot here at theSpeakEasy and plan to give it away soon. We'll run a contest to see who gets it, so keep checking back and we'll post the details soon!
If the contest doesn't sound like your cup of tea but you really want one, you can see if there are any active Dot listings on eBay right now...Feel free to discuss this here in the forum...

Exclusive Dot Funkey Showing Up On eBay
For those who haven't noticed yet, there are exclusive Dot figures from the San Diego Comic-Con showing up on eBay now
. From the look of it, they must have been limited to 2 per person because I haven't seen the same seller list more two of them. With only 2000 out there in total, these might become pretty tough to find soon...

Watching for Dream State
With the past few Funkeys series releases, most of us learned that they were hitting the market by the fact they started showing up on eBay. Looking around today, I found a cool little tool that lets you see what is up on eBay for a given search term, so I decided to add it here to the top of the page until they come out. That way we can all watch for them together. Once they start showing up, there will be little images of them in the box below. It's kinda neat, go ahead and test it out by typing in a different term like "funkeys wasabi" or something...
Update: The widget was removed from this post and added to the top of the home page...

eBay to the Rescue!
I finally broke down and bought one Series 2 figure (Sol) off ebay so the kids could play on the new Funkiki Island stuff. I'll post about what they think of the additions soon. I also grabbed the last figure I still needed from the original wave, the Very Rare Twinx. Woohoo!

Third wave now showing up - Flurry, Nibble, Sol, and Webley
It seems strange that they would already be releasing the third wave considering that the second wave hasn't even close to saturated the US market yet, but they have! I had gotten a few unconfirmed reports from people that these new figures were showing up, but now I'm seeing them on eBay. The third wave has a new look to the packaging and features Funkiki Island. The following images are from eBay, you can link through to the auctions for these characters:Sol
So for the record...Wave One:
Boggle, Bones, Deuce, Lotus, Scratch, Twinx, Vroom, and XenerWave Two:
Fallout, Glub, Sprout, Stitch, Tiki, and WasabiWave Three (confirmed so far):
Flurry, Nibble, Sol, and Webley
Others known to be coming in January 2008: The Speed Racer Series
with a new hub and 8 new Funkeys.
Man, I'm behind in getting these! Stupid slow Mid-West store chains... :)
