What's on your mind?
As a LEGO fan, I've noticed that people in the community have started doing resin casts for LEGO elements such as Bionicle masks in colors and styles that LEGO themselves would never attempt. I've been considering doing this with Gogo's for a while. That said, I have no experience in Resin casting and actually attempting to do this could be costly.
But I just wanted to know, has anyone else tried to do resin casts on Gogo's? Should I? The classics and Panini figures would be the best candidates since their detail is engraved in the moulds. I'd start with something simple. Probably doing a bizarre color or something. Or tie-dye.
Just a forum to discuss colors and variants.
First thing I wanted to ask, does anyone else use the LEGO palette when referring to the colors of Gogos? For example, I refer to the pastel green figures from Urban Toys as "Spring Green" and the greyish blue figures from Megatrip as "Sand Blue," and so on.
It shocks me to say, but a decade ago, Megatrip was released to the Brazil market in August of 2009. This collection of 80 really changed the game for the second generation of Crazy Bones. The advertisement for the Urban Toys wasn't small in Brazil, and it seemed to grow with Megatrip. Fast-food chain Giraffas distributed the Macro figures and merchandise, from plushies to school bags, was sold across South America.
Supermarkets Carrefour, Real, and C1000 made aware the craze to Europe in the early 2010's, distributing figures 1-40. England would not receive Megatrip until 2012, with a comparably silent release known as "Edge," a collection compiled of figures 1-60. The Philippines received Megatrip the same year, with a re-issue in 2017. Other releases in countries Singapore and Indonesia would follow. Finally, Costa Rica received Megatrip in a promo with Tosty known as "Fuerza Gogo's" in 2013.
Megatrip also had several subsets. Dino Gogo's was the first release of any figures related to Megatrip. In this collection, special variants of figures 61-80 saw a 2008 release in Spain with Danone. In Turkey, variants of these same figures were released in yogurt known as Sütaş Taltlimmm in 2012. Kalise distributed figures 41-60 with special Nuclos cases shortly after the European release of the first 40 characters. The United States received figures 1-20 in special variants known as White and Black Diamond, released in tins with 10 characters. The US also received a special variant of Ayu, known as Miro-K, in promos at Walgreen's and Target.
With all this promotion, it's not surprising that awareness of the series grew outside of its countries of origin. With the rise of the internet, many people took to Youtube to upload commercial, pack openings, and collection videos. Some I remember fondly are the Brazil commercial and the Columbian pack opening. Characters featured prominently in the advertisements, such as Tsu, became fan-favorites. Additionally, with the release of Miro-K, many US collectors were curious as to why his stamp said 'PPI Worldwide,' instead of the traditional 'Magic Box."
I feel like this wiki contributed to this awareness, documenting these figures as they made their way across the globe. Supereggy5 and TheJetJaguar are to thank for many of said contributions in these early years.
I'll end with this, a collection of some of Megatrip's most notable figures and media (note I am not finished with the compilation and there is plenty more to be added.) Thanks for reading, apologies if this is too much of a history lesson. I would also recommend giving this site a check, as it shows much of the series' promotional history.
So I'm thinking about creating a "Gogo's Vault", a small safe filled with rare Gogos, unopened packs, books, and other Merchandise. When you open it, it is also more of a display, with the rarer ones in the front, or on little pedistools, and other Gogos and unopened packs near the back, with merchandise sprinkled inbetween. Ideas?
soo i joined this wiki becuase i found this gogo lagoon from the coca cola monsters series outside 1 day in green
and then i saw the sereies tab and then i found dracco heads i have been looking where to buy jaws
in pink if there even is one so i you are looking foward to buying some dracco heads here are some websites that i found during my dracco hunt!!!!!!
I've seen many, many Barjos here in Sweden, and in Norway, Denmark, Germany and the UK. Possible Spain too. I highly doubt they were only sold in France.
Also seen many Jojos necklace figures here in the nordic countries. And I got the Rapper in a lot from Germany. I don't have proof of a pack, but I think it's safe to say they were sold in multiple places in Europe. Can I update the pages for these series?
I’ve decided to create a discord for Crazy Bones! I thpught it would be a good place for us to casually interact. I’m not trying to compete or draw attention away from the wiki, just have an extra place. Invite Link: https://discord.gg/bc2nY7z Please join!
Well, the topic title pretty much sums it up! Looking to buy one, so send me a message if so. I have duplicates of Original, Things, Sports but seeing as if you have a precious metal Eggy.....I doubt you need them.
Also, did they do all of the characters from every series (of the first generation) in precious metals? Or just some random characters or random series (original, thing, alien)?
I recently came across my old collection of original series crazy bones. I have multiples of all characters from the original series. Some only 3 or 4, others I have over a dozen. I've got everything from a toothpaste reggae to a whistler speedy. If anyone is looking for anything for their collection let me know. Make me an offer. The only thing I don't have are pecious metals. Looking forward to hearing from you guys.
Hey, I found this wiki through Google while trying to find out more about a figure that has been in my collection for probably 6/7 years?
When I was younger, I was really into Gogos & would go to anywhere I could to get packets - I'd save up my pocket money & buy full boxes of packets & I was about 15-20 figures away from having a full set of every Series 1 figure in every colour. I just gave up, I suppose. The figures I needed weren't rare, I had all the rare ones & just got bored. Buying individual figures I needed at £2 a pop on eBay just didn't seem worth it. My collection was boxed up and put into storage.
One day, while still collecting, I came across an eBay listing for a 'laser mosh'. I knew nothing about the figure but as Mosh was my favourite character, I decided to try and win it. I did. (I got him very cheaply too considering the rarity).
This wiki is the only place online that has any information on Laser Mosh. Does anyone have any further information about the rarity of this figure? Do many people have them or have most been lost by the kids they were given to at the event? I am yet to find the box containing my collection but it can't have gone far, and I'd really like to find my figure so I can upload some pictures of this unusual Mosh (I can't really find many on here, I can only seem to find evidence of one other one in a collection?!).
It feels insane that there's a figure that is so rare sitting somewhere in storage in my house...I had no clue of the little guy's rarity, but there really is no information online.
I think what I'm trying to say is, even though there were so few of these made, and even less have made it to the online market, they do exist. I'm sure there are many more kids like me that collected Gogos & looked after them, went to swap meets, and then eventully packed their stuff up and forgot about it.
I am going to get my dad to look in the garage over the next few days in the hopes of finding my collection. Then, if anyone is interested, I am happy to take photos and stuff like that.
(I'm sorry if the formatting is wrong, I have never used Wikia but seeing how passionte people are here about Gogos made me want to post!) :)
