REVIEW: Rolitoboy French Kiss Serie

Img_3599

Background

If you’re a fan of designer toys, there’s a good chance that you’ve seen the Rolitoboy figure from French designer Rolito.  He teamed up with Toy2R to produce a number of the normal (6” tall) and mini (2.5” tall) figures.  Each one is known for having a see-through dome for its’ head.

What should be a popular blind-boxed series, the Mini Rolitoboy template was given to 12 different designers.  The French Kiss Serie contains one figure from each of those French-based designers.

Packaging

All of the figures in the blind-boxed line are packaged in the same box design.  All 12 designs are represented in their drawn form on the sides of the box.  The actual figure is packaged disassembled, so you’ll need to put the arms and legs on to the body.

The Figures

The Mini Rolitoboy French Kiss Serie contains 12 different designs with 1 chase figure (pictured above).  Each figure is approximately 2.5” in height and has 5 points of articulation (arms, legs and neck).  The top of the figure’s head can be removed (both the dome and the mini spherical noggin’).

The list of artists includes: 123Klan, Yuck, Superdeux, The Pit, Kant1, Mr Francois, Chick, Run, Danyboy, Rolito, Stan & Vince and La Chienne.

  1. It's funny how people's opinions can be so
    different. The La Chienne design is my
    favorite so much so that I bought 4 of them
    for my collection.
