I think those are pretty cool. Love how most of them are angry like and a different way to stand. Nice set. :freddy3:

.
Since I missed the last two Wednesdays, I looked for something different to post.

I present "Naked Alex"

Smart Alex is the name of a greeting card/giftware company out of Chicago. It's owned by a funatic named Jarkbark. In 2003, he had Funko make up some Wobblers for him, a standard colored version, a black and white version, and a naked version. The next year he had a GITD version made. At the time, and maybe even still, this was the only fully assembled (with a spring) Wobbler proto. Naked Alex is an LE 12.

Image

Here are the others in the set. That's what a normal Wobbler proto looked like.

Image

By the way, his body should look a bit familiar; it's the same body used in a couple of the Zombie Lounge Wobblers.
The Smart Alex came first; then a few years later Funko reused the body mold for their own original designs (I believe with Jarkbark's permission).

May the 4th be with you Renard!

Great to see you post again Scotty! Always like the history behind the pieces. The zombie lounge set is so fun.

I’ll do another Star Wars one this week.

Will mimic what Mickey has said, more than the toys, it's the story behind this pieces makes the Wobbler line special, IMO.

Thank you for the stories, Scott! Can't' wait to hear more of them. :)

Another classic for this week’s Wobbler Wednesday!

Fireman! Are there any variants for this?

And would you know the back story behind the “Niddle Noddle” - was it just a wordplay for Wacky Wobbler?

Wobble on, guys!

Good start! There is another variant of this where he’s wearing a yellow jacket instead. Someone else may be able to explain your second part.
