UB Funkeys at 106th American International Toy Fair® in New York City, 2009

Here are some images of UB Funkey figures that were found on Figures.com from the 106th American International Toy Fair® in New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center that took place on Feb. 15 - 18.
(Special recognition goes to Obsessed Funkey for posting images from the Toy Fair on her blog and sharing it with Funkey Fans & that's how we became aware!)

This is the largest Toy Trade Show in the Western Hemisphere! I was hoping to find that Mattel's UB Funkeys were recognized with one of the rewards, but unfortunately they were not!
But surprising to me was that the Toy of the Year award went to Bakugan Battle Brawlers Battle Pack Series 1 Spheres – Spin Master. (source:

At first I was puzzled about the two versions of Marshall, then I realized. The normal brown one probably goes to all game rooms in Nightmare Rift, while the new white one probably goes to the game rooms in DDO.

Pteprocks said...

Also, may I take a couple of these pictures for a report on my blog? I have no other source... XD

Robyn said...

You can, or you can go to Figures.com, that's where I lifted them. (and I hope they don't mind! But at least their name is at the bottom & I gave them credit....although that's not always good enough. I might contact them for official permission!)

funkey said...

Steven (Comic Guy) said...

That is so awesome, even though I don't play anymore. My favorite is Paradox because he brings the helicopter thing that attaches to his neck.

Steven (Comic Guy) said...

joe, you have to go to all the trees and shake them

Steven (Comic Guy) said...

They should have taken pictures of both Marshels.

joe said...

Thnx Candy Bar! U rock. And I am sorry to tell you they took Bandit out of the Terripinia library.

I live in New York and when I checked the list of toys to be shown at the fair, there was no trace of funkeys anywhere. And now I could have seen something so awsome in person especially the frog funkey. I'm starting to think now that maybe it is a coincidence.
(But that's beside the point)

frogboy 96 said...

Oh and another thing, where is the oni? You can't have kane and king sidd without the oni.

joe said...

I just beat funkiki island finally.
Thanks Candy Bar and Steven for the help. And I had basketball try outs and made the Team!

Shel2 said...

I already have the goya, dali, oni, both marshalls, kane, and king sidd. I will post my funkey family picture on my blog soon. Pteprocks, you are right the white marshall goes to daydream oasis and the other nightmare rift.

chris said...

Oh is that right Shel2? Then where did you get all those characters huh? And how come you never posted it on your blog? That's what the blog is for right?

oNikkio said...

I really like the marshals!!!! Plus they shoulda took pictures of the paradox funkey's backs. PLUS if you notice the factory funkeys are taller and slimmer they don't have a popped out gut like the funkeys do. There taller.

I'm sad that they canceled funkeys before they released those. :(

I would have hunted down the dream state one like a... um... carnivore... hunts a... uh... prey.
if they made paradox adventure, who would the third one be?
maybe bad dr. tinker
