Bobble Island

There are some people and characters who just lend themselves to becoming bobble heads, don't you think? For instance, the Mystic Seer from the Twilight Zone (of which I am a proud owner) is one of those perfectly executed bobbles. Entertainment Earth has found another. I'm talking about Lost's own John Locke.

Last year, Entertainment Earth offered an exclusive Benjamin Linus bobble head for San Diego Comic Con. Needless to say, they were one of the more popular con exclusives and sold out pretty quickly. With Lost's series finale coming at us faster than another time shift, the company that made them, Bif Bang Pow!, was smart enough to spread the love around.

John Locke and everyone's favorite Maybelline user, Richard Alpert, are just the tip of the iceberg. Lovable Daniel Faraday is reading important things about his constant with his pet rat Eloise looking over his shoulder and Dr. Edgar Halliwax (aka Dr. Marvin Candle aka Dr. Mark Wickmund aka Dr. Pierre Chang) is in Dharma Orientation video mode holding white rabbit #15. The only one I'm a little let down by is Hurley. He's imortalized in his Mr. Clucks attire, complete with hat. Come on, Hurley's hair needs to be wild and free!

Richard and Daniel are being released in July while the others will ship in August but they can all be pre-ordered now from Entertainment Earth. I wonder if they're going to get around to making any of the females of the cast into bobble heads. Though the only one I can really see myself wanting is Rousseau. Ooh! Or Crazy Claire!!

I'm not a huge fan of bobble heads, but John Locke with the orange in his mouth is priceless. I would also gladly accept any attempt at making a Smoke Monster bobble head.

And, yeah, Hurley's is unfortunate, but if you can get your hands on that MacFarlane figure from a few years back (the one that depicted him from the golf course he made)... that is aces!

I don't care about Lost. I just to express that I thought your post said "Boobie Island" in my dashboard. Seeing Lost bobbles only caused much disappointment.
