REVIEW: Boogily Heads Series 4
Rocket USA recently released Series 4 of Gus Fink’s popular Boogily Heads line of hand sculpted bobble head figures. The lineup consists of six new characters: Charlie Black, Giggle, Qually, Phant, Twinks and Gus Fink. There have been a few exclusive and limited run colorways (167 pieces each) released in addition to the regular versions.
If you’re not familiar with the line, Rocket USA describes them as follows:
“Each one-of-a-kind character has a name and story and is derived from foam sculptures that were hand made by Gus Fink himself, including original artist imperfections.”

Some of the previous Boogily Heads series has series specific packaging, with illustrations of the characters on the back of the box. Series 4 uses a “generic” Boogily Heads box with illustrations of various characters from the first four series. Inside, the figure is held between interlocking trays.
When it comes to Gus Fink’s Boogily Heads, it’s going to be tough getting better than the Pumpkin Billy character. But, as a whole, it’s probably the strongest overall Boogily Heads series – from top to bottom - that Rocket USA has released. And Gus Fink has even decided to immortalize himself in bobblehead form.
You should know by now that these figures aren’t sculpted to look smooth and sleek. They’ve been sculpted to have little imperfections, tool marks, etc. And the paintwork on these figures is average for a mass produced line.
Looking at all six characters, I’d rank them as follows: Phant, Charlie Black, Twinks, Gus Fink, Giggle and Qually. In my book, none of them come close to Pumpkin Billy, but Fink fans will want to add a few of the newest characters to their collections.
You can pick one up at the following:
Collector's Gateway: $7.25 ea.
