The Party Rockers are small. They fit in your hand. That is a selling point for me. I can sneak it if I am careful with it. Hahaha.

The least favorite one is either the horn for a mouth or the one with the big mouth... Maybe that one. I like the pink the most and the party one 2nd best.

I can find the youtube video. It has the best visuals and size.

Good luck trying to find the Party Rockers in the store. I went out on the 15th (their supposed release date) and there was not a single Furby to be found in any of the stores I checked. The local Walmart, Target, ToysRUs, and Kmart were all completely out-of-stock of any Furby. I thought maybe it was because we had a recent blizzard that closed down roads for a few days, so no stores could receive deliveries. But given what I've seen on Furby's Facebook page, and what I've heard, Furbys are just in high demand all over the United States. Enough so that stores are saying they're not getting them in anymore. Kmart even stopped listing the Party Rockers on their website.

 

Which is a shame. I really want the Twittby (that's the one with the horn for a mouth. I think he's adorable!), but I'm not about to pay double or triple the price for him on Amazon. Plus, I guess I just kind of miss the fun of finding a Furby in the store.

Thanks. I am sure I will find one eventually. I am looking forward to all these critters roaming the town with their adopted child. Yes, furby adopts child. Atleast the Furby tames children better then some of the adults here... Keeps the child entertained instead of screaming for no reason.

If we don't see them anytime soon... I might fork over a bit extra for one. We usually have a fairly decent stock of regular furby at one of our Walmarts...

Regular Furbys aren't hard to find here. I was at Toys R Us a couple weeks ago and they had a whole shelf full of them. Any color you could possibly want. I don't know if the stores around here have Party Rockers yet. I haven't been anywhere in awhile. They might be harder to find being both new and cheaper than regular Furbys.

Yup. I figure that will be the case. I hope I come across the Love By in a store somewhere... I really fell in love with it looking more into them.

Hm, maybe Shelby size? Since they're small and all....

 

Anyone have pictures of the other two you're talking about?

 

Speaking of which, trying to repair this Shelby i picked up for 5 bucks at the swap meet. Managed to fix the back sensor issue and the shell 'catching' and not going down, even while sleeping, but the mouth and shell are out of sync--the shell moves when the mouth is to move, and vice versa. Going to have to take it apart further to see what's up, I heard this happened with old Furbies and there's a 'switch' or screw or something you turn to sync it. I wonder if the Shelbies have it...

The sync screw?

Yes, Shelbys have it.

Yeah i found it and it's fixed. :) Nothing can be done about the low voice, though, that needs a speaker replacement which I cannot do.

So I guess the party rockers don't have animated LCD eyes... Just a still frame that they always have as there expressions. They are rather cute though... And fairly inexpensive so I'll probably be picking up a loveby next time I go to Walmart or something. Also thinking about buying and original or emototronic furby on ebay soon.

It doesn't appear so. I can confirm if nobody has seen one in person yet. It looks like a piece of plastic swapping back and forth. Not sure, I haven't gotten mine yet. I expect it sometime soon. I bought a Love By.

i would recommend the original Furby. They can interact with the newer Furby better. Youtube has video of a few together.

I'm thinking seriously about waiting to see some reviews before I buy any of the Party Rockers. From what I've heard so far there isn't a whole lot to them. No LCD eyes, no animatronic movement, I think I'd rather spend money on increasing my 2012 Furby collection.

Ya. I plan to do a bit of a verbal review of them. Atleast the Loveby. Looks like the prices are slowly (very slowly) starting to come down online. It seems like some places are still in pre-orders, like they come out in March. Some places might have had them or put some in stock. I didn't expect them until atleast middle March.

I'm looking forward to your review. I very much want to know what these Party Rocker things are like and what they are capable of.

I'm not able to view videos. I have Hughes.net satelite internet. It's the only available high speed option out here. It's fine for browsing and reading websites and messageboards but it's really stingy with the bandwidth caps. If I hit that cap it slows my connection down to sub dial up speeds.

Ahh. Then fast forward version.

Blue with horn mouth, very chatty. Loud. (possibly annouying) Hence the twitt-by.
Purple reminds me of the diva personality on the actually fruby, but louder. sassby
Love by seems really sweet. Kinda reminds me of a baby furby. Very sweet sounding, girly, perfect for young kids.
The blue with horns on his head, I haven't looked much at him. Sorta weirds me out to be honest. I would guess simmilar to the personality on the furby... (sorta... Um... Brash?) scoffby

They all sing. Seem very chatty with the Furby. Seems like it would be better to have a 1 on 1 with Furby and Party Rocker. They feed off their energy/sounds.
