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).

how does the platinum card work now?

Since post counts are not viewable, and posts were "lost" in the transition to the new board?

Most of the points awarded (in the past) for the platinum cards were given for attending Funko events (CC & FFD), but I am sure that could have changed somewhat.

yeah, but there was a posting component/forum component, where if you reached 10G posts that would earn the platinum card (and it you got points basted on your amount of posting towards points.

Did we just have a surprise drop by Huck encounter??????? Some great news. Especially the Nodkins - these should be a big seller for Funko, and should hook thousands of new funatics. Now, if we can only entice them here...... all the merrier :D :D :D :D

And that Infredible Hulk - a stroke of pure genius, that was :rolleyes: ;-) ......

Female characters apparently don't sell very well. Hence the lack and Jane and Judy Jetson, Lois and Meg, Marge and Lisa, etc etc etc. I would love to round out the Jetsons!

Sometimes the licensing of the characters is an issue also. Due to some "adult entertainment" made out of Judy Jetson's character, you would have a very hard time getting a license to make anything Judy.

Dear Brian of Funko,

What one Wacky Wobbler has the distinct pleasure of having the largest production run, and what character is it?

Thanks!

WITH PACKAGING AND DIES NOW, I THINK IT WOULD BE COOL IF ON THE BOTTOM FRONT OF THE BOX LIKE 3/8 INCH UP HAVE AN OVAL LIKE 3/4 BY 2 1/2 INCH CUT INTO THE BOX SO YOU COULD READ WHAT IS ON THE BASE OF THE WOBBLER. IT WOULD COOL TO SEE FUNDAYS 2009 WHILE DISPLAYING THE WOBBLER IN THE BOX.

Wow - it takes a really great idea to get me to post nowadays, and this ideas ROCKS (so to speak)

The Impossibles would make a GREAT 3-pack (I was thinking Wobblers, but Funko Force works for me as well)!

How 'bout it, Brian?
