Our glorious Milky Way is a tiny, infinitesimal speck of sand in this vast, incomprehensible universe. And somewhere in that Milky Way is our own solar system, less than one billionth of that speck of sand that is the Milky Way. And then there is our planet Earth, one hundred trillionth of that one billionth of that one speck of sand. And on this planet Earth there is DEV-0, an insignificant blemish with a lifespan too short to measure when placed in infinite time.

And you are here, with them, as so many specks of sand.

The "new" Boglins I've seen aren't commemorative reissues, they're actually part of a new Boglin line that was released in an extremely limited fashion a few years ago. They were very similar to original Boglins, but they had "action features" that, unlike MOTU, were actually kind of cool. That might be what everybody is seeing. I haven't seen those Boglins for a few years, but it wouldn't surprise me at all for them to pop up again. They were serious peg-warmers...

Here are a couple auctions featuring some of the Boglins I was talking about:

These new Boglins were far more prominent in Europe. In face, you'll notice that the seller is from the Netherlands.

They also had action figure sized boglins that came in an awsome little cage and chains for their arms

they were about 3 inchs long and and inch and a half high with moveable arms

I remember useing the cage with my MUSCLE's back in the day

it was pretty fun

The cage complemented the MUSCLE's very well

I remember seeing these guys at a TRU in the late 80's/early 90's.. they seemed to be made of a harder plastic & had swiveling arms, as mentioned. I think that there may have been a hole in the bottom too, finger-puppet style. I couldn't buy one at the time that I saw them, and of course, the next time I went they had vanished. I've never seen a pic of one since.. does anyone know of a site that has them?

I'd love to get one now, but I have no idea what they were called, making eBay searches difficult!

I have one of those boglins, they are solid (Hard) plastic and they do have moving arms and a hole in the bottom for a finger/thumb. I believe they were only sold in the USA. I bought mine from there, and have seen 3 others on Ebay since. All sold in the USA and all bar my one were sold by the same seller.

As far as searching ebay, I allways search both Boglin and Boglins and get varying results :)

Would it be possible for you to take a photo of yours? It's been so long since I saw that one at TRU.. I'd like to see if my memory of them is accurate :)

No probs, There used to be a few pics in the Mini Boglins thread, but the thread seems to have dissapeared.....

Thanks Nocturin; that looks pretty similar to my vague recollection of the one I saw. Do you know if there were multiple colours/sculpts produced?
