Exclamation MAD BUBBLER Prototype Found

Hi folks,

We got our Christmas early here at Hollywood Heroes. One of my long time clients called and sent me over photos of this.... the only working model of the Mad Bubbler.

To date, this is the third we have found. However, only the first to be a fully functioning model.

Those who know our company, can verify that our items are 100% legit and we guarantee their authenticity.

Our best to everyone.

Enjoy!

Wow. Is this something that is going to go up for auction? Do we all need to look into mortgaging our houses and selling our organs?

Jordan would be best to answer the auction question but my best guess is that maybe. I must say though that this one piece could easily fetch thousands of dollars.
I think with the uniqueness of this one piece that all bets are off when it comes to price. This is one of a few found in the last 25 years

This has been quite a few years in the making. When i first started collecting about 6 years ago i began correspondence with Hollywood Heroes concerning the Mad Bubbler and other prototype pieces. At the time i was kindly given some information on other Mad Bubblers that were sold, most likely through private sales but Hollywood Heroes was bound by confidentiality agreements and so the only option was for one of those people to come forward since they could not provide pictures due to this agreement.


All in all, I want to extend a huge Thank You to Jordan for giving us a first hand look at what is considered to be the Holy Grail of Thundercats toys. I must say that the news on a new series and new toys coming soon was a bit of great news but this in my opinion tops it all when it comes to toys. Today will be a day to remember by many of us who have been waiting so many years to see just a small glimpse of such a rarity

Well i still have my emails that i exchanged with Jordan dating back to 2004 or 2005. So at least that long, if not longer. At that time Jordan was unable to provide pics due to an agreement that was in place with the purchasers of the previous Bubblers

I knew the Bubbler had to be out there and it was just a matter of time before he peeked his head out.

Great news on the 25th Anniversary of Thundercats
