Somebody else will have to chase them!

:D 

Personally, I don't know why they are selling the chase figures.  Where's the fun in that?

Where did you see this about the Wobblers?

It was discussed by Brian Mariotti(Funko owner)at this years Funko Fundays.
And depending on sales, we might see 12" & 20" banks.

Eventually the price of the chase pieces should drop to $25-$30.

Or maybe you'll be able to walk into a retail store and find them for $10.

I'm not crazy about "silver screen" variations.  I'm definitely not willing to pay extra for them.

I'm not even crazy about big-head stuff. I'll probably get a Frankenstein one someday but that will be all.

Oh! I thought maybe there were some proto pics up somewhere. Hope they do make them!

I like the designs on these guys, especially the Dracula one.  Hopefully we will see those larger versions.

I just heard back from my Funko rep and indeed, the master case is 24 pieces, 23 of the color version and 1 black and white version per case. 

The UMA price will be $10 each plus actual shipping - $40 for the set of 4 (plus shipping).  Based on the wholesale price, that's pretty bare bones.  Anyone interested, please email me at jeff(*at*)cjclassics.com or send me a PM.  I'll be ordering one case of each so the first 22 interested parties will get one.  Thanks everyone.

Check this response from my Funko rep regarding these appearing in major retail outlets:


"These are not going to any major retail chains.

More questions? Let me know!

Thanks so much!"

That is really weird...  Why?  TRU and Walgreens have both been on the UM bandwagon in recent Halloween seasons.  Why not this year? 

I don't know what life our monster friends will have if this trend continues.

Not an expert, but it could be that the price point is higher than the large chains would want to charge for something like this (which they probably see as strictly an impulse item).

And they'd want them in the stores in time for Halloween (which was probably two weeks ago)

I can see their release being too late for most retailers for Halloween, that is true; but you'd think that at least one retailer would want these guys.
