Review by JoshB
Booji Boy (Pronounced like "Boogie Boy") is an icon of the band DEVO. He's played by a guy in a costume, the mask is some generic mask bought in the 70s and modified by Mark Mothersbaugh to represent Infantilization in American culture.
I never knew the deeper meaning, I thought it was just a nightmare-inducing mascot of one of the weirdest bands ever.
A Bobblehead for Booji Boy is sort of fitting as it actually looks like a loose-fitting mask on a character, which is what it was like in reality.
The box is sharp, with nice photos of both the toy and the actual character that inspired it.
One side even has a description of the character. Not every Aggronautix release does this, but I'm glad when it happens.
The bobblehead itself is solid. The sculpt and paint on Booji Boy are top-notch - a far cry from the DIY aesthetic of earlier Aggronautix releases. This feels good in the hand and looks good on the shelf.
Booji Boy's head has an angelic expression, as if he is looking to the heavens for redemption. The slight blush on the cheeks and details on the eyes are nicely done.
The silver jumpsuit, microphone and box on the chest are nicely sculpted. The pose is natural, and just dynamic enough to be interesting.
THis edition is limited to 1000 pcs, and each unit is individually numbered on the bottom.

This throbblehead is one I might pick up, devo was a really important band in pop and post modern culture, and having one of these guys on your shelf is a great comment on 80s consumerism and a play on infantilism in itself.
