Description



From the beloved "Peanuts" gang of comic strip characters comes this rare "Pig-Pen" bobble head figure. Surrounded by a cloud of dust, this soft-spoken character made his way into the hearts of adoring fans, despite or perhaps because of his unfailing ability to attract dirt. Considered the toughest piece of the original c.1959 Lego Peanuts characters bobble-head series, this 6" figure is a remarkable example showing abundant original detail.

 

Under magnified examination, only one minute chip on the upper left front corner of the base and one hairline crack on the neck opening were detected and these very minor conditions are unobtrusive with virtually no impact on the appeal of this magnificent piece. Along with full paint and excellent gloss, the decal lettering "Pig Pen of the Peanuts Comic Strip" on the front of the base remains full and bold and the underside of the base is stamped with a Lego copyright and also has a red and gold Lego "Fine Quality Japan" factory label sticker affixed. As the head of this piece is covered with pointy hair spikes, it's incredible that these extended details are free of chips and paint loss. Say yes to this rare, vintage collectible figure from one of the most favored comic strips of the genre.
