Bobble of the Day
Player: Star Wars Jedi
Team: Lowell Spinners
Manufacturer: Success Promotions
The past 5-6 years has been Star Wars bat shit crazy as so many MLB and Minor League teams have come out with some sort of character from Star Wars. I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not the biggest Star Wars fan and maybe watched half of the first ever movie. Other than that, I have not watched any other. I just never really got into the craze that people go nuts for.
Anyway, in the past, many teams have come out with Jedi, Yoda, R2D2 and Chewbacca bobbleheads to represent Star Wars. This past summer the Spinners came out with their version of a Jedi. I had to get it because I am a Sox fan and the Lowell Spinners are an affiliate of the Red Sox.
I like the base most of all. I love the raised yellow lettering that offsets the black top of the base. The uniform is kinda dope with the Spinners logo on the jersey and hat. I’m assuming the ball attatched to his hand is some type of “Use the Force” bullshit that diehard Star Wars say but I dig it. It adds character to the bobble. I’m pumped the manufacturer made the light saber green as it stands out much more than a darker color. Lastly, the brown cloak he’s wearing brings the whole “Star Wars” theme together. It lays all the way to the base and the detail of wrinkles within the cloak is noticeable which means whoever made this didn’t half ass it.
Sniper Rating: Like I previously stated, I’m not a huge Star Wars fan but I think this one is kinda cool. I love the color combinations and the raised baseball he’s holding like he’s got some sort of magical power. Given it’s part of the Red Sox the rating gets a little juicer. We’ll go with a solid 8.0 on Mr. Jedi
