REVIEW: 9″ Blank BUD and NADE

Img_0354

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.
