Boglins, the popular 1980s toys, are back for their first official trading card set. In 2021, creator Tim Clarke created a new line of toys for the franchise and now he’s partnering with Dynamite on the collectible trading card series. They are developing throwback cards with rare art, unique photos of the Boglins, and chase cards.
Boglins Trading Cards Series One features trivia, stories, and behind the scenes info from the creators. The 120-card set contains 9 Foil Card chase cards and 9 Old Fashioned Card Stock chase cards. A chase card is guaranteed in every pack, plus Box Topper Incentive Cards, one of six special behind the scenes production model cards, and one hand-drawn full color sketch card are guaranteed in every box.
Clarke, Maureen Trotto, and Larry Mass created the Boglins, which were then distributed by Mattel in 1987. The series of toy puppets were created during the period when horror films were populated by small scary creatures like the Gremlins, the Critters, and the Ghoulies. The goblin-looking hand puppets are made of flexible rubber, allowing kids to make them change facial expressions and appear to speak. The original run went until 1994.
