The 20'' Big Boy Mystery

Postby funkomania » Thu Feb 05, 2004 8:52 pm

Well, theres been many stories to this Big Big Boy.

Theory One ) - Its a Funko that was just made in Japan and left there for the Japanese.

Theory Two ) - Its just a cheapy knock off made by some other company that admires Funko.

Well, I have to go with theory two. Vote away!

I know that Funko had nothing to do with this item...Although it was made fairly well it's a 100% knock-off. Guaranteed.

Well, I have one. It is well made, but it's not a Funko. On the bottom of the base it says "JYAN MANUFACTURING - Made in China."

I want to make sure there is no further misunderstanding here. We, Funko, are aware that a Giant Big Boy bobble head was manufactured for the overseas market. Although this items LOOKS like a Wacky Wobbler, it is definitely NOT a Funko product.

there you go...seems pretty clear to me...and with an issue like this i think that it's sorta unfair to speculate further as it could adversely and unfairly impact our friends' business.

Yea...sure...but can we trust a member of a secret society of Buddist face-painters with only two posts? :poke:

It was from an old auction. I am sure these are hard to find. Chances are slim, but you could always try. Good luck!

Ebay Japan...
12,000 yen each.
You'll need japanese language support installed on your computer and you'll have to find someone that can translate the language, so you know if the seller will ship, but there is a good source.
There have been several up on that site...

Here's one now, with 6 days left... http://www.bidders.co.jp/item/25891685
