Thanks to Pteprocks, Chris, and Lilaq for their alerts that Lucky is up on Ebay!
And thanks to Funkeyz from the FunkeyFanForum that Sprocket is on there too!

Funkeys101 has put together a slideshow of his pictures of Daydream Oasis. You all just have to see it! If you don't already have a Funkey that goes to Daydream Oasis, I think you'll really like seeing these pictures.
But, once again, a warning that it is a spoiler if you want to wait to be surprised to see the trophy, and the item for an insane high score, and some other fun things in Daydream Oasis.
Here's the link: Funkeys101's Daydream Oasis slideshow
You can view a smaller version of the slideshow over on the right in the sidebar of this blog. I placed it further down so it won't spoil it for anyone who doesn't want to see it.
If you're like me, you'll want a Tank, Berger, Lucky, or Dyer REALLY bad after seeing those pictures. You might also start craving cake and/or ice cream!
Here's another picture from Funkeys101. This is his collection of Daydream Oasis funkeys.
He found Berger at a Target in Miami back on August 30th. That makes it the first reported Daydream Oasis Funkey found. Wow, that was a great find! So, all of you Funkey hunters in Florida, there's hope for you to find one soon! We didn't have any luck today at a Target up here in Northern Va.
Thanks, Funkeys101, for sharing your pictures!
If you haven't heard about the UB Funkeys crib contest over on FunkeyFever.com, you should hop over there and check it out.
You can vote for your favorite crib for the current month (only one vote per IP address), and also enter the crib contest for next month.
There are 2 days left to enter the crib contest for voting in October. Your entry must be in by September 25th. And then the first 50 cribs submitted will be displayed for voting beginning on Oct. 1. The theme for October is Scariest Crib In Funkeytown!
Oh, I almost forgot to mention that the winner of the crib contest will win a Funkey!
Please see the website, for details.

Dillon W. from Colorado has shared some pictures of the UB Funkey Berger with us.
Here's a spoiler warning for those who want to be surprised later: There are pictures of the trophy and inside Daydream Oasis and Berger Haus at the bottom of this post.
We hope you enjoy the pictures, and here's a big "Thank You" to Dillon!
Oh, I should also apologize for the smaller than usual pictures, I had trouble making them larger. Dillon has sent some screen captures in as well, and I'll try to get those up too, so please check back soon!

I'll post a picture of the trophy in the trophy room soon.
I just saw on Ebay that someone is selling a list of UB Funkey cheat codes for $2.45, and I couldn't help but laugh because they are available for free with just a quick google search. But then my jaw dropped when I saw that 2 people have already bought it! (I did a little more looking & saw that 5 people have purchased the list, some paid $3.25!). The seller advertises it as a list of 14 UB Funkey Cheat Codes.
I have two thoughts on that.......should I be trying to sell something as well? Nah, I don't feel right doing that, but I suppose information is valuable!
My second thought is this: Which code am I missing? I only have 13. I'll list them here (from previous blog posts) and maybe someone out there will know what the 14th is (but don't try to sell it to me for $2.45, LOL). My guess at the moment is maybe it came from the UB Funkey speaker set or maybe one of the multi-player games or newer hubs.
[edit: Oops! We did have the 14th cheat code, I just forgot, but thanks for the reminders from those who left comments!]
This is what I have so far:
- iluvfunkeys345 ~ 50 coins
- 6786allworkandnoplay ~ 50 coins & a Very Rare Insane Flaming Hoop
- sproutarboretum852 ~ 75 coins & five new wallhangings
- funkeystownmuseum28 ~ 75 coins & a Chocolate Lava Lamp
- wasabipagoda992 ~ 100 coins & box of Exploding Whizbangs
- tikihut327 ~ 50 coins & a war totem
- boggleden129 ~ 75 coins & a Ghost Flame Toilet
- ponderingpark453 ~ 75 coins & Sonic shield generator
- falloutcompound358 ~ 75 coins & Solid Gold Panel
- kelpybasin4564 ~ 75 coins & Chocolate Seaweed
- radicarules4565 ~ 500 coins & a Very Rare Diamond Treasure Chest
- dascratchclub983 ~ 75 coins & a Platinum Record
- bogglethemind2256 ~ 50 coins & a Foul Smelling Bone Chair
- rocketwithsprocket6588 ~ 25 coins & a robot
Enter the codes at the main menu login screen under "options". Each of your login names will get the bonuses upon login. Use lowercase letters when entering the code.**
Here's another question for you all - Have you come across any codes that work more than once? The seller of the cheat code list on Ebay claims that some of the codes will work again on another day. I just went down the entire list that I have, and they didn't work again for me!

This is of-topic for this blog, but since it took me a while to find, I thought I'd share this link.
If you watched Oprah Winfrey today, Feb. 12, 2009 with Gwyneth Paltrow and her favorite kitchen items and want to find the steamer that is her favorite, a Gaggenau Steamer, you can find the link on my blog's right sidebar.

Most of you probably want to see these images of inside Daydream Oasis, and of the Tank Coral Cruiser trophy. But if you are one who wants to be surprised later when you gain access to Daydream Oasis, then don't look at the rest of this post!
I'll come back at a later time to add some captions to the pictures above.

Eric L. from Fresno, Ca. sent in these images that he got from working with his game files (a note to the kids reading this: That is not recommended unless you really know what you're doing!). It shows that the UB Funkey game is set up so that Master Lox, Mayor Sayso, and a Henchman will be playable characters. You can see where the images are highlighted, similar to the way the Funkey you play as is always shown in the upper left corner with the highlights around the Funkey.
Neonmaster & Mittens also sent in some images with glowing figures that appear to be a correct assumption that they will be playable characters. One was Jerry from Funkiki Island and now we've seen the product images, so that has been confirmed. Another image was that of a henchmen.

We just got our sale circulars for tomorrow's Washington Post. I thought I'd share that the Toys R Us sale flyer is advertising 25% on ALL Dream State Funkeys.
The sale runs from September 7 - 13, 2008
It appears that sale applies to all stores in the US. Now we'll just hope we start seeing the Daydream Oasis Funkeys there this week!
When Liam logged on to UB Funkeys this morning, we got a new update, 3.15 Promo it was called. I called Mattel to ask about it because there were no obvious changes. The answer I got was that it updated some maps, some blanks in the maps....not sure which ones. Has anyone noticed anything different?
I want to thank NeonMaster for reminding me of this. I wanted to post this earlier and then I got sidetracked and completely forgot!

What do you all think about this one? A plush Deuce. Would you even buy it? I guess it's cute, but I wonder if you have to be a fan of playing UB Funkeys to think it's cute. It seems that someone who isn't familiar with Deuce would not buy a devil-looking creature for a kid. And if you bought it for a friend's little kid, randomly, if they are non-funkey playing folks, what do you think they'd be thinking? Now, if I saw a Dot, Flurry, Bandit or Rewind, maybe even Sol or Twinx, I'd be very tempted to buy one! I need to thank Brouf for leaving a comment to tell us about this on Target.com (you knew I'd really like this, didn't you? You must have known I'd thank you 'cause you already said "welcome"! LOL . You are right, I love this kinda stuff!)
Thanks to Annie's comment, I went back to the Target.com website and see it's been updated since my last post. It now says, "$4.99" and "In Stores Only". And there are more images.
So, to the rest of you, what do you think? Are you going to buy one?
