Anyone here collect Crazy Bones? I love these colorful little fuckers. Ever since I was a kid I've been a sucker for collecting colorful/outlandish little things in blister packs. I think I can remember loving this stuff as far back as Pogs.
Am I the only one around here who likes cheap little collectibles like these? Or are they completely obscured by the figs and models?
Anyone got any other similar toylines to recommend out there? Stuff that's cheap, fun and comes in blind packs? (I guess popular enough to be available for a while, too. I've seen a few lines like this disappear right after finding 'em, and that's never fun.)
The old ones have more bugish eyes as well as just being ordinary objects. Trash packs seem more indicative of this 90s styling, except being trash and having vomit/dirt in the sculpt, and being made of a softer, rubber-like plastic.
if you're after collectible blind packs at a 'reasonable' price, then try any of the Blind Boxes that are floating around. There are ones done for pretty much everything and can be bought in bulk for varying prices from most every website mentioned on this board, as well as some toy stores. There's marvel, disney, DC, transformers, Game Of Thrones, Dr Who, MLP, with a few series done of each. Sorry if this is to indepth into something you weren't after.
Pretty much the only ones I can think of are all done by Moose, or at least the best ones in the early 2000's or the late 90's. I got a little carried away with my first response, looking back it was a bit off topic
I have a tupperware box of these full of the old ones. I also have some of the newer ones, but really I had fond memories of bringing in my tupperware box full of Crazy Bones to trade in the school yard.
My favourite of the old ones was the Rocker, and for the new ones, probably Helly.
yep i have some g1 bones and a collector bag
I used to collect them when I was younger. I bought some new ones out of nostalgia. Its one of the only toy collections I had as a kid that I still have now, the other being lego. They're pretty cool now. Like affordable vinyl stuff.
Aha! I just bought a few of these a couple weeks ago at walgreens they were in sale 2 for $3 which is a deal because the package comes with 2 right?
They're equally adorable
I didn't think they were made by Moose toys though?
>they were in sale 2 for $3 which is a deal because the package comes with 2 right?
Sounds good to me, since I'm pretty sure Series 4 is the first one to have 2 figs a pack instead of 3, but you can get the cool metallic ones. I'm pretty sure those are new to Series 4.
I fuck with Crazy Bones pretty hard man, I'll have to post a pic of my collection tomorrow. A few months back I pulled a Most Wanted Angiru and Welu at walgreens within the same week. Felt good. But are they no longer making these guys or what?

Nice. I pulled a Tego-W out of my first Series 4 pack. That was pretty cool. These things do a good job of giving me that same elation as getting a rare Pokemon card as a kid.
>But are they no longer making these guys or what?
They're still going strong to my knowledge. I can get 'em at Walgreens and pretty much any of the big-name general stores around here, though I think my town is behind in series.
That's how I feel. They're just good cheap fun for my inner impulse buyer, especially compared to most blind bag stuff.
Any idea if any new series is coming out? It seemed like two or three years ago they had at least one or two series per year, I haven't seen anything new in some time.
>Any idea if any new series is coming out?
That's the thing, their official site seems outdated so I'm pretty out of the loop. I've only seen Series 4 around here but I think it's gotten up to 6 or so in other places based on a few things I've seen around the Internet.

90' Kinder frogs/sharks/hippos/penguins sets, right before pogs and Pokemon fads in my country. Everyone collected and loved those.
