Over the weekend my wife and I hit the local outlet mall for her to do a little shopping of her own. I looked around for some shorts, but wasn't able to find anything I wanted. So as not to rush her, I left and walked around until I came across a little toy/gift shop. I've been to this store before around the holidays, but I thought it was one of those seasonal type stores. None the less, here it was. At the back of the store was a fairly large clearance area and while there wasn't much that caught my eye, I did find 3 blind bags of Rabbids Invasion mini figures.
Being a video game collector, I was familiar with the Rabbids, but have never really played many games with them in it. That was until I purchased Mario + Rabbids for Christmas this past year. I've laughed out loud so many times at the Rabbid dressed up as Peach...it's mannerisms are hilarious. This lead to these little blind bags being an easy purchase. I believe they originally retailed for $4-5 each, but I got them for about $1.75 each.
I can't say I really recall seeing these at retail before. The date on the bag is from 2014 and I was surprised to see that McFarlane Toys made them. The 3 bags I purchased were all from Series 2 which contains 7 different Rabbids, one of them being a mystery figure. The figures themselves are about 1 inch tall with the ears making them a smidge taller. They aren't articulated in any way, but the paint apps are applied well. Each figure comes with a small round blue figure stand. Each figure has a small hole in the bottom of one foot, allowing it to peg onto the stand giving it extra stability.
I was hoping for this one, Blondie, as it reminds me of the goofy one dressed up as Peach in the Mario + Rabbids game. So goofy this one.
This is Bill E. Rock, a goofy Elvis impersonator. At first I thought he just had a wig on like Blondie, but my 6 year old daughter recognized it as an octopus on this head...and she's right! If you look closely you can see the little suction cups molded into the plastic.
The last figure I opened was Professor Marker. I love the little black marker he's holding in his hand and all of the scribble on his face.
The likeness of these figures matches their craziness that is brought to life in various video games. These are some of the best blind bag toys I've opened in quite some time. I hate that I missed out on these until now, however I'm glad to add these 3 to my video game shelves.
