The Furby gets reborn... Hasbro, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!?
Editor's Note: I added the video so you can see Satan's spawn in action!
In a move that well nobody saw coming, toy and video game publisher Hasbro has revived the Furby after 14 Years since its launch in 1998. In case you forgot what they looked liked, hereit is. Yes, these toys from hell have been brought back and will get some modern tweaks to it... What kind you ask? Well, here’s what Hasbro Engineer Don Cameron had to say in a recent interview about its revival.
Yes the toys from hell can now talk to your iPad using Audio Frequency Codes... I had a Furby growing up and even without batteries the DAMN THING TALKED if you bumped into it, and I'm sure a lot of us that might have had one had similar, if not far creepier, experiences from this thing.
No word yet when Furby will come back, but I assure you I will not get its modern day reboot. What are your thoughts, fellow g1s?
I have been waiting a good few years for this! I used to run a furby fan site years ago, and now I can finally get excited about new iterations. The tech I am still a little unsure of, I did a sort of pre-launch run-down on my website http://www.toyfurby.com review if anyone is interested in seeing a fans slant on the new furry furby!
They WERE cute....
It seems that way.
not with a wimper, but with a "FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU" from everyone who had to put up with the original Furby
Oh joy.....I remember having this and those eyes.......at least this new ones have a less creepier eye, but the color gives me the annoyance of Navi -_-
this is how the world ends....
So will the world end with an epic battle between bath salt zombies and furbies?
Those eyes are a bit creepy...
I loved Furby!
OMG it's Like having a Living breathing Navi! I can't wait to jump off a Cliff! XD
My god, I thought we rid of them all.
Nobody has ever liked Furby. Why the hell bring him back?
They had all the color choices in the world, and they went with fungal teal.
I would make fun of it, but that's just the icing on the cake for this monstrosity.
Ah, furbies. It's been a while since I've seen one, but it's never crossed my path until now. Time to start building Mega Busters.
The hellspawn has returned.
that damn thing died out in the late 90s why bring back something that creeped people out
yes please!!!! Ponies are the way! They really want to jump into the fandom waggon...
No, no ..NO i thought we rid of them forever...THOUGHT RID THEM 4EVAR!!!!!!!
ahhh! ahh! ahhh! Can we just stick to Ponies?....
OMG! No! Not again! 2012 man! 2012!
