If I were to remake Funkeys, would you play it?

As Promised, My Updated Collection

So, the ones lined up on the floor in the back and the random cluster in the front are all my doubles. There is no Very Rare Snake Oiler in the picture because it got lost in moving, but I ordered another on Amazon a few minutes ago. Common Raj is also not in the picture because I brought him and a normal hub to college with me and didn't bring him home for spring break. I also have 2 more normal hubs, a Speed Racer hub, and a dream state hub not pictured. Hope you enjoy!!

A nice picture to show off the Dot!

You can see my custom Cruncher in this picture. His beard is starting to fall off... I'll have to fix that.

100th Post and Collection Complete!

Hi Everyone! This happened a while ago, but I never had the chance to post. Happy 100 posts!! And I certainly timed this just right because we have something very important to celebrate!


:) I'm really happy. I'm at college right now though, and all of my Funkeys are actually in storage right now because I'm moving... But once they're out I will certainly take a picture!

Happy blogging :)

Only 2 More Funkeys Left!

Over the course of the last week and a half, I thought I would do something nice for myself this Christmas and buy myself ALL the Funkeys I still didn't have. So far, the hunt has been fantastic. Met some very nice sellers on eBay and Amazon. My grand total so far is $139.32.... I have a problem. Don't tell anyone. Shhh. (It's actually not that bad; the average is $5.35 per Fukney since I bought 26 of them)

What I have received thus far is:
Rare Bomble/Yeti
Very Rare Bomble/Yeti
Very Rare Singe/Kali
Rare Twinx
Very Rare Berger
Rare Deuce
Rare Sprocket

What is in transit:
Very Rare Lotus (came with C Stitch which I already had)
Very Rare Bones
Rare Vroom
Rare Singe/Kali
Rare Snake Oiler (came with Rewind, C Ptep, C Tank, C Waggs, C Sol)
Very Rare Snake Oiler
Very Rare Cannonball Taylor
Rare Racer X
Very Rare Boggle (came with R Boggle)

What I bought by mistake (I already had these):
Very Rare Racer X

What I bought that was incorrectly labelled online (I already had these):
Common Cannonball Taylor
Common Snake Oiler

Very Rare Raj
Very Rare Snipe

What I've noticed is that people who are on eBay or Amazon who are trying to sell Funkeys from the Speed Racer series do a very poor job with acknowledging the difference between the different rarities. So if you are Funkey hunting, but wary of that. Here is a checklist of what I have now. Purple means I have it, Green means in transit, Light Purple means it is impossible to get, and White means I still don't have it. If you are interested in selling/trading with me, let me know. I have TONS of doubles up for trade. Also be sure to check out the trade page above!

7 Months Later...

Okay so I just was trying to play Funkeys on my virtual Windows XP machine and it wasn't working. Turns out, when I got my external hard drive I moved all the files that my virtual machine needs to run over to it. So I had to open it up and locate all the files just to make it run. Then, since everything was moved I had to reinstall the operating system. *Sigh* And to make things even better, when I went to reinstall Funkeys on the Windows XP machine, it installed fine, but I couldn't figure out how I transferred my data over from my old saves. So now I have to start the game over or figure out how I did it last time... The things I do for Funkeys...

I'm Over It

They just made a new Skylander named Sprocket. THEY STOLE IT FROM FUNKEYS!
I no longer have any respect for the creators of Skylanders. That is all. :) Have a nice day everyone!

Felt I Needed to Post

Well, it's been almost 5 months since I last posted, so I felt it was due. Not much going on with Funkeys. I just looked each figure I still need up on Google Shopping and most of them were nowhere to be found. :( It's going to be hard if I ever mean to finish my collection... The ones they do have range from 3 to 40 dollars... Don't know what to think. All I can hope is that Mattel is concocting up something good to compete with Skylanders. It's not that hard to do, the technology is simple and has been in place in other devices for years... Hopefully someone there is smart enough to make this investment.
