The Funkeys are coming, The Funkeys are coming.....

New Funkeys, that is. The buzz has already been out for a while about the Speed Racer series that is due to be released around the time of the Speed Racer movie. And we already know that Dot, Drift, Bandit, and Sprocket are coming because they are in the Terrapinia Library and on the side of the Hub packaging, but we just didn't know when. I spoke to a Mattel Rep. recently who told me that the first 6 Speed Racer Funkeys are due out in April, with another 8 in the Fall. Dot, Drift, Bandit, and Sprocket should be out by the end of the year.
[For updated information on Dream State & Chat Funkeys, please see this post and to see the changes in Terrapinia after the 3.0 update preparing for the new Funkeys, see 3.0 Dream State & Chat Funkey 3.0 update ]

To see the full complete list of all UB Funkeys, including Dream State that should be out soon (the single Funkeys of the Dream State series are not out yet as of June 23), please see this post: UB Funkey Checklist



BUT this is news that I hadn't heard before...............

Quoted from MSN.com Money News:

U.B. Funkeys(TM) Figures - U.B. Funkeys(TM) keeps growing! Master Lox has returned and now lays claim to the Funkeys' dreams. Dream State(TM), the latest series from U.B. Funkeys(TM), features 10 new Funkeys characters allowing kids to unlock and explore two new zones - "Nightmare" and "Daydream." Each Funkeys character unlocks a different game in the zone, and opens up new and exciting items for kids to buy and add when customizing their "cribs." And, for the first time, U.B. Funkeys(TM) will introduce "Chat" Funkeys, letting players communicate with each other safely in the game, and "Multiplayer" Funkeys to let players compete against their friends. Also new for Dream State(TM) are Quests, where players can earn coins and items by completing specific missions.

They aren't available yet. From what I hear, they should be out in August. Augiewan at the Speakeasy blog & Rockycha at Squidoo both have information posted on the Dream State Funkeys. I'll try to post those links soon.

I just wanted to add an update to this. The Dream State series is starting to appear in the Toys R Us stores as of June 13. So far it's only the new hub with Drift & Bones that has been spotted in a few stores.
