Where do you hunt Wobblers?

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got a spring. Come inside and chat about Funko Wacky Wobblers (bobble heads, for the less sophisticated).

I've bought most of my wobblers off of eBay . However, I think I've dried that well up. Looks like I will have to be patient or find some of the other places you guys have suggested. I have also purchased wobblers from Gemini, Popcultcha, and Amazon.

Definitely been checking out comic shops here and there and surprisingly most have all had a few Wobblers hidden somewhere inside. Of course, there is the occasional fun find like a Mr Softee for $125 or something insane.. Makes the hunting all the more fun lol

For the new ones, I’ve seen the Star Wars at TRU and Go Calendars. DC, Marvel, and SW at Target. Spencer’s used to carry them and I’ve seen them on clearance at the stores that have been around for a few years, although I’m sure there selection is getting thin. Bought the old school Harley and Joker there about a year or so ago. Still have some Force Awakens ones at the local one.

Mostly Star Wars and a handful of DC heroes. I saw the ZEA Batman Wobbler the last time I was at Target.

It was a standard discount % back when they did 25%, 50%, 75%, and then $2 on Clearance items. They've switched to another plan now, which appears to be rotating items in and out of the 50% and 75% brackets.

Check out Big 3 down in Alhambra since I know you're in SoCal lol

Last time I was there they had a decent selection tucked away on the very back wall. Not nearly as much as that one guy at Franks, but still surprised they had some. I think Rob Zombie's Halloweentown in Burbank had some last I went and even check out some of the Rocket Fizz candy stores if you ever find yourself nearby one. I've been to a few across SoCal and they always have a couple floating around and I just saw someone post not long ago they found one of the locations selling Spastiks as well.

Thanks for starting the thread! I actually wanted to post something similar recently because I was browsing through PPG and saw all the Simpsons wobblers and fell in love. Gotta find me some now!

My best place to hunt wobblers is either My LCS or eBay. I've found a few new wobblers at Target and other various retailers but they were ones I didn't want. I also found some success on the WTB page as well. Older collectors seem to be in those pages trying to help out newer collectors.

No luck on the Simpsons ones yet. Kept an eye out at a few places but looks like I'll resort to slowly grabbing them on ebay between trying to keep up with other lines. Found a few Star Wars and Nightmare Before Xmas ones dirt cheap at a local store for like $3 each though :D

I've had some decent luck at the local swapmeet. The Targets around me don't carry much.

Yesterday while on vacation in Singapore I stumbled on a few chase Star Wars wobblers at Simply Toys Bugis Junction. There was Captain Rex, General Grievous, and Anakin Skywalker. They had some yellowing on the white and box wear.

I got my first wobbler today in the marvel collector corp box. Black panther chase one at that. I think its a sign I should start getting some of these.
