Bobble of the Day
Player: Shaquille O’Neal
Team: Los Angeles Lakers
Manufacturer: Forever Collectibles
So FOCO came out with a line of newspaper based bobbles of roughy 30 players back in 2014. The entire set is fresh as hell and I chose to highlight Shaq as the first blog for “Bobble of the Day”. Shaq was the most dominant big man for a shit ton of years. Was he flashy? No. Was he a good shooter? No. But the dude was an absolute brick shit house that no other defender wanted to fuck with.
This particular bobble stands out so much because Shaq is rocking his all-yellow warmup jumpsuit. Who doesn’t like Laker yellow as a color? The design is a fresh look instead of just a player wearing his shorts and tank top jersey. The Laker logo is printed on the front left chest and on the back is “Lakers” in purple. FRESH AS HELL. I do like the base as a newspaper as it gives a different character to the bobblehead itself. This one in particular is highlighting Shaq as the MVP of the 2001-2002 Finals where he dominated. Proudly, The Big Disel is holding his MVP trophy like a boss.
Sniper Rating: Given the fact that Shaq was unstoppable for many years and the fact that the facial features are pretty exact, this is a must have in your collection. I also love that FOCO gave him a go-tee which adds a piss load of uniqueness. The Big Man in his all decked out Laker warmup jumpsuit scores an easy 9.0.
Here’s to the Big Man.
