REVIEW: Chuckanucka – Uglydolls

Img_0402

Background

David and Sun-Min
have introduced several new Uglydoll characters over the past few months.  The latest available Ugly is known as Chuckanucka (Peaco is now a pre-order).  After premiering at Toy Fair 2006, the Ugly masses have been clamoring for release of this character.  Below is what Chuckanucka’s tag has to say about him.

OK, you know what?  Chuckanucka.  That’s what.  Chuckanucka worries about pretty much everything under the sun: What if the phone rings when I go out? What if the mailman tries to deliver my Deluxe Uglydoll Earmuffs when I’m in the bathroom?  Hey, I don’t remember leaving the closet door open just a crack like that!  What if I can’t ever stop thinking about my name over and over?

Chuckanucka has a pretty strange way of looking at life.  Sometimes he wonders if this is all just a hologram, and on other days he wonders what’s going to happen if they stop making CD players…  How will I play my favorite CDs??? I have over nine of them!!!  Poor Chuckanucka.  Lucky Chuckanucka.

Packaging

Umm…Uglydolls are plush toys.  They don’t have any packaging.  They do have a nice little tag, but I already told you what it says!

REVIEW: 9″ Blank BUD and NADE

Background

Jamungo’s BUDs (Blow Up Dolls) were one of the most popular blind-boxed toy lines of the past year.   The 3.75” line was made up of 10 different designs on the same basic body.  NADEs were made in the same scale as their BUD brethren.  They were initially created in 2 colors – Grey and Orange.

Due to the lines’ popularity, Jamungo decided to create a 9” line of the figures.  They have started off with blanks (white BUDs and NADEs) and will introduce 2 Kozik NADEs in October.

Packaging

Both figures are packaged in the same military-like window-front box.  There are a few drawings, but this is a figure the collector will want to remove…so he or she can eventually customize it.
