I have a soft spot for THQ’s de Blob series. The characters are cute, the gameplay is fun, and both games have great soundtracks. There are a number of these de Blob figurines in a variety of colors, including ones of the bad guys! Some sell very cheap, and can even be found in the occasional Toys R Us. Once these things sell through, though, don’t expect to find more. With THQ defunct and de Blob’s future a giant question mark, these figurines are one of the last tangible connections to the series you’ll be able to find!
Retro(spective) is back in action, folks. Catch you all next week with another installment of Toy Box. Hmm, number ten… perhaps something special is in the works? Bet on it!
