TriAction Toys’ Boglins World Domination campaign continues its smashing success with Kickstarter backers having already pledged more than $103,000 against a $25,000 goal. The return of the classic creeps from the ’80s was exclusively revealed by the Toy Book last month, and following the reveal of the brand’s full 2021 lineup last week, the promotional machine continues with the second episode of Boglins Are Back.
In “Tim Safe At Home,” Boglins co-creator Tim Clarke is on the run from the ghoulish toys as they seek to bring the toymaker back into the fold.
Originally released by Mattel, Boglins have amassed a cult following over the past 30 years, and next year, kids and collectors can welcome some new characters and reinvented favorites into the fold. Boglins co-creator Tim Clarke, licensor 7 Towns, and Mark Freedman of Surge Licensing have inked a deal with TriAction Toys to relaunch the line in all of its original glory. The hand-controlled figure puppets have a rubbery feel and moveable glow-in-the-dark eyes, and are inside packaging that recalls the originals with “wooden” crate-like boxes with bent plastic jail bars.
The Kickstarter campaign runs through Dec. 27.
