I dunno, the new Furbies seem like a step backwards, especially the Party Rockers.

The new Furbys (Furbies?) don't have a light sensor, so they can't tell if they're sitting in a dark room or not. All four of my 2012 Furbies fall asleep so long as I don't shake them around, no matter if they're sitting in the dark of my room at night or in the bright lights of my office. Where the light sensor was on the old ones is just decoration on the new ones.
heard the new ones only sleep when you put them in the dark.

But really? They don't tell light anymore? Aww.

New ones communicate either by sounds or some waves. Yeah, more realistic, okay, but functional? Not really.
Well, the old furby creator wasn't monitoring the works on the new furbies, so that explains things. It's like how The Sims brand is now without Maxis (or was, because Maxis came back). Maybe even worse?
Anyway, not that long ago I exprienced that shutting down suddenly thing. Was kind of scary...

Other times I thought it went comatose, but it was playing a game. For the life of me I cannot remember it, then it said "Done!" and acted as normal.
I found a decently priced green Furby Baby on Ebay. I think I'll get it. we have a pink and yellow but... eh. Green is my color.
Also debate getting a Shelby. Never had one before, but they're expensive as heck. Would it be better to get a new one or a used one out of box? I would at least like the instructions, but people throw them away. I can't understand throwing that stuff away, the collector in me knows it's worth more complete... with anything really. Was as bad as this one store getting used games, then tossing the case and manuals away and just selling the cartridges. Needless to say, they didn't last long, and this was after the company took it and didn't allow it to be franchise anymore. Shame, really.
I hear you on the Sims, though. When Maxis was out of the picture, I don't know, just seems kinda... meh.

But my coffee g4 original furby doesnt wake up at all if i move him, he only wakes up when i press the reset button, but then he comes back immediately to sleep. My tie dye also falls asleep right away, but it can be woke up normally, and after few tries I am able to play with it. No luck with the coffee though...

Are they any good? They seem to be decently priced on Ebay, however I notice their beaks seem to get worn easily, ripped, etc. I assume a cheap rubber was used to make them. So looking around, it seems difficult to find one where the mouth looks good and isn't torn. Any way to keep the rubber fresh and prevent tearing? Some sort of oil that can be used? Are these Furbies worth it? At first i thought they were ugly/creepy, but watching some videos of them, they're kinda neat.

The emototronics are quite cool, but grumpy. They have cute voice.
Posted 03 February 2013 - 09:19 PM
Oh god you all have gotten me hooked on these. D:
Posted 04 February 2013 - 07:00 AM
And this way I have 7 furbys in total, 4 original adults, 1 baby, 1 emototronic and one 2012.
Posted 04 February 2013 - 09:19 AM
I'm also trying to figure out who talks to who. I know the original, the baby, and shelby all talk. Does the emototronic talk with them? Another of itself? And i assume the 2012 only with itself.

But when it comes to the new ones, actually they can "talk" with any other versions, because they react to any random noises. They may also start dancing to other furbys talking.

If there's no IR, i wonder how the emototronic ones communicate to each other... (To another emototronic I mean)
Posted 04 February 2013 - 10:45 AM
Maybe they're just not social. XD
Posted 04 February 2013 - 12:46 PM
Posted 04 February 2013 - 12:59 PM
And ah okay, guess I don't need more than one emototronic then. They're not badly priced either, if you can find one with a decent mouth, which i did. In fact he looks like he was literally just removed from his box.

The instruction says that you have to press their bellies together and pet their backs or something... I don't remember, something weird like that.
Yeah, I am able to hear that noise. But I think they just react to the voices themselves to be honest...

Wasn't the 2005 Furby called "Hey Furby"? I thought so. I almost got one while they were clearancing... My sister said no. Likely too weird looking... Not as creepy as the babies might look from the 2005.
