Anybody else think the Slime Skull is really weird?
Just doesn’t seem to fit in the toy line at all.
The toilet does, but not the skull. Thematically it’s out of place, and the styling doesn’t have any resemblance to the rest of the brand.

There’s a blistered one on eBay now so I was checking out it’s packaging; no flavor text or any explanation.

My guess is that is wasn’t even designed for the Boglin line. I bet it was made for something else entirely that got dropped before launch, so the skulls already manufactured got reappropriated into the dwindling and almost dead mini boglin franchise.

You’d be surprised how often that kinda thing happens in the toy industry!

Anyway that’s just my theory, if anybody knows better I’m interested!

I've seen the eBay lot, lots of good stuff up at the moment. Do we think the skull is genuinely still sealed? It comes with a yellow slime, I thought yellow and blue came with toilets and pink/Orange came with the skulls.

crazy price. i saw someone withdrew their bid. it's going to end at the current bid imo

 

it would've been cool if the skull resembled a boglin, I guess it kinda reminds me of the prehistoric tribe, but yeah I think it probably wasn't intended for the boglin line. the toilet is cool, a trash can or something would have been kinda cool I guess

 

I really wish there was more boglin playsets. the swamp is awesome, but would've been cooler if it was made from something more solid

I didn't like the flimsy cheap swamp carry case. Only carried about 12 boglins. No use for me when I had 200 when I first started out lol

yeah, it should have been a proper playset, not just a carry case

 

i love the half price reduced stickers on these though, its a shame the slime one goes straight over the center of the bubble. as much as i think it adds to them, id probably remove that one

So I guess this puts an end to the myth that the skulls contained the pinks...

Pinks did come with skulls I think there is a pic knocking about showing it but that listing shows yellows and presumably blues as well came in skulls.
