Bobble of the Day

Mascot: Thundar

Team: North Dakota State 

Year: 2016

Manufacturer: Forever Collectibles 

A lot of people don’t know who the Bisons are. They represent NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision level and compete in the Missouri Valley Football Conference. Ever hear of Carson Wentz, the starting QB for the Eagles? Well he led them to their 5th National Title. Can the Bisons compete with the greats of Penn State, Michigan and Ohio State? No, but they are pretty damn good in the division they play in. 

NDSU decided to celebrate the Bison’s success by coming out with a “Thunder” mascot 5 Championship trophy bobble. These are hard to come by and I’m not surprised in the least bit. Over in North Dakota, fans and people go ape shit over their Bison’s. I love everything about this bobble as should you. The Bison head is very detailed with his horns flaring out and scruffy face. I like how he’s dressed in the player uniform which shows a green jersey and yellow football pants. These features really pop and make the bobble that much more attractive. Thundar is holding 2 Championship trophies in hand, with the other 3 on the base. A lot of time and effort went into this one! 



Sniper Rating: If you’re not on the NDSU bandwagon, get on it quickly. I consider this a “true” collector’s item as mascot’s seem to be a distance thing in college football within the bobblehead world. When was the last time you saw a college football mascot with 5 Championship trophy’s? Not to many. My only negative on this one, and you can probably guess, is the sticker on the front of the base that says, “Thundar”. It’s a shame because this bobble was so well designed and thy go and ruin it with a half ass sticker. Overall, Thundar, and the Bison’s of North Dakota State get a deserving 9.0 on this one.
