Pocket God Collectible Figurines Make Debut at Barnes & Nobles
The cute little Pygmies from the iOS hit Pocket God are about to invade your home as they are now available as collectible figurines at your nearest Barnes & Noble stores. Bolt Creative, the developers of the game have teamed up with Funko, a Seattle-based maker of pop-culture licensed items to produce two lines of toys, namely the 5-inch Collector Vinyl Figurines and the 2.5-inch Blind Box Figurines.
The 5-inch figurines consist of game accurate figurines in four different Pygmy styles: Happy Pygmy, Warrior Pygmy, Zombie Pygmy, and the Moon Witch. The 2.5-inch blind box figurines are kinda like those Be@rbricks, these smaller vinyl figurines come in 16 unique characters of varying rarity. Each figurine is packaged in an art collector blind box – fans will not know which Pygmy they have until they open it!
“Pocket God is here to stay, and partnering with Barnes & Noble is a great way for us to ensure that our beloved Pygmies cross over successfully into the real world the same way they have in the digital space,” said Pocket God co-creator and Bolt Creative CEO Dave Castelnuovo.
On top of these figurines now being available in Barnes & Noble stores and online, Bolt Creative is running a contest for fans, asking for photos of the blind box figures they’ve collected in island scenes and offering Apple Gift Cards and Pocket God swag:
Fans can enter to win over $500 in Apple Gift Cards, Pocket God vinyl figures, and other prizes by submitting a photo of the Pocket God Blind Box figures in a picturesque pose or a creative island scene, with the entrant’s name and age visible in the image. To participate, entrants must email the picture, their name, address, and telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org or simply tweet the photo to @PocketGod using the hash tag #PGBlindBoxFigure.
Over 100 prizes will be given away across three different prize categories: “Got ‘Em All” for photos containing all 16 figures, “Got Some Rare Ones!” for photos containing at least one “rare” marked figure, and “Best Fifty Snaps” for photos containing at least one Blind Box figure.Powered by Sidelines
