Background

With the impending release of the Boogily Heads Series 4 from Rocket USA and artist Gus Fink, we have decided to take a look at some of the variant Boogilys.

These variant colorways come packaged randomly. In each of the first two series there were 250 total variants (or around 42 per character). And finding a color variant in Series 3 was even more difficult with only 150 total figures (or about 20 per character).

Packaging

The variants come packaged in the same window-front box that the normal figures do. Inside of the box, the piece is packaged between dual, interlocking plastic trays. It still includes a foil pack that includes a Mini-Comix.

The 1:6 scale Bank Robber Joker might have some competition for the best sculpt of the past year. But it's another Hot Toys piece. From The Godfather, the 12” Don Vito Corleone collectible figure is going to be difficult to top. Just look at the close up photo of his face. It looks real!
