In the past few years I've bought a surprisingly large number of Boo figures. I may have a problem with Boos. I made some calls to see if there was an organization to help me with my Boos problem, but apparently a) there is and b) it has to do with another kind of problem entirely. Anyway, where was I? Right, tiny game piece sold as a toy with a card and a sticker.
The tiny figure comes on a display base and holy crap is it small. If you've bought Bit Figs, they're roughly the same size as this guy. It's a fraction of an inch tall, with the base making up about 20% of its total height. The white plastic figure has painted eyes and a painted pink mouth.
For a figure of its size, it's expensive - but not prohibitively so. Mattel's Minecraft minis are about $3-$4 each, but Bit Figs are less than a dollar. Given the license, game pieces, and multi-billion dollar corporations needing to be paid off, the sale of something small enough to fit in your nose isn't completely outlandish.
It looks smooth, and the Boo is a tough figure to do differently. He has a "shy" face which rarely - perhaps never - gets made as a toy. Most of the recent Boo toys have a big tongue sticking out, but this one doesn't. The K'Nex one didn't either - but it has a painted mouth, printed-on eyes, and looks like the characters you can't kill but will follow you around since 1990.
It has no articulation and can be lost in your pocket - but at least you get a sticker and some powers. He can drop coins, he can move around. But he looks cool, and that's why I got one. It's tiny for what it is, but if you like miniatures or board games I assume you want this. It's a neat idea, but I wish the Boo could glow or have a little more meat to it. Maybe it could've been a larger King Boo. It's tiny, but it's about as good as you might expect for a traditional game piece.
