PostSubject: An end to Funkeys?? - Write a letter   Sat Jan 16, 2010 4:05 pm

First topic message reminder :

One thing that may work and I thought about this when I got wind of the forum closing was maybe ALL the Funkey fans SHOULD write an letter to Mattel telling them what a great product UB Funkeys are! Tell them WHY you like them! Don't go off on them yelling at them about closing the forum or not making more funkeys or the problems people have with them, but tell them what a good product UB Funkeys are, build them up - maybe if enough of us write, they can/will go on!

I am sure we can get a mailing address posted here so we can do this. After all, if even half of the members that signed up at the other forum were to mail, it would be in the thousands. Can you imagine WHAT they would think when they got thousands of letters praising them for the funkeys??? If it were me, I would be totally AWESTRUCK!

Here are some addresses for Corporate Mattel:

Mattel, Inc.
333 Continental Boulevard
El Segundo, CA 90245-5012


Arkadium also helped on the project:

New York, NY 10010

Dear Mattel:

I am a fan of your product U.B. Funkeys. They are really fun to collect and play! I have at least one of each tribe! I have been playing and collecting ever since I first found a Funkeystown starter pack in our local Wal-mart!

This game gets a 10/10 in my book! I love it! My favorite mini-game would have to be ‘Operation: Flight plan’! My favorite figure would be henchman! Favorite zone…close tie between Paradox Green and Laputta Station!

I’ve spent hours playing this game! I have every gem and almost 50 trophies! I also enjoy making “mix ’n’ match funkeys” in Microsoft paint (as above)! I can’t wait for the DC Heroes to come out!

Your fan,

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am an avid fan of your UB Funkeys. I love to play the game and collecting the funkeys. As of this time I have at least 1 funkey of each tribe. I have been fortunate to find some of the other rarities of some of the tribes also along with the different UB Hubs you offer.

Just wanted to write you to let you know how very pleased I am with your UB Funkeys! My 3 boys and I love playing it. I love the retro games (reminds me of my childhood) and my boys love to explore and find things. It is the perfect game for us as a family to spend time together working on a common goal. We also enjoy visiting the UB Funkey website and going to the forum to talk with other UB Funkey fans. It is the perfect compliment to the UB Funkey game.

This game has kept us playing for hours – we need to defeat Master Lox, find out what the big red button does and overall help save Terrapinia!

Keep up the GREAT work!

An avid collector and player,

Yeah; Sunday I asked DArkDjrios about it, and as far as I know no one has played Funkeys for quite a while.......

They aren't really dead, but they just aren't made anymore.

If the servers are still up does the Funkey Trunk and purchasing through that still work?

I'm not sure why they just don't go mostly online with getting new funkeys...it wouldn't cost to make them then it would just be putting together updates to keep the game going...and besides there are still plenty of us using the 'older' computers Laughing that we could probably keep the game/storyline going and they could profit from that.

Also...wasn't there someone who got the game to work on windows 7 before they closed down the Official Forums??? I thought I read that somewhere...

It does! I got some loot the other day, actually. Though, the Familiars no longer change. All you can buy is the dot familiar, Stitch familiar, and a 7 day Fallout. The Items from Angus's lab change from time to time, though.

Hm......
