Last month, it was Sidney Crosby. On Thursday, the bobblehead and sports clothing company FOCO released the limited edition Evgeni Malkin bobblehead for presale orders.
They’re making 72 available. But they are sending PHN one for use in our studio, so a more appropriate 71 bobbles are for sale. The retail for $75.
The company also recently released a Kris Letang bobble and, a couple of years ago, a Ryan Whitney figurine.
The bobbles feature Malkin in an action pose atop a Penguins theme base. The standard bobble will be numbered 1 to 72 and stand 9.5″ tall.
According to its website, FOCO has a product line that includes apparel, accessories, toys, collectibles, and novelty items. The company has come a long way since the Whitney figurine. The company now has major sports and entertainment licenses.
You can preorder the Evgeni Malkin bobblehead here.
This season, Malkin, 35, is having a resurgent season after recovering from knee surgery and signing a new four-year contract on the eve of NHL free agency. Malkin has more than a point per game, with 33 points (11-22-33) in 32 games. The Penguins have won seven of their last eight games, with the only loss coming against the Carolina Hurricanes.
You can visit FOCO to purchase one or a trove of other bobbleheads, apparel, even bathing suits. FOCO has a full line of Pittsburgh Steelers apparel, too.
“Each bobblehead we make is handcrafted and hand painted, so no two are the same. The bobble is officially licensed by the NHL and the NHLPA,” Foco told Pittsburgh Hockey Now.
Foco has not compensated PHN for the story but promised to send us a Malkin bobblehead for our YouTube studio. We thought a few of you might enjoy one of these.
