6 Most Popular Movie-inspired Bobbleheads

What are bobbleheads? A bobblehead is a doll with a nodding head which is often oversized in comparison to its body. The head is not connected directly to its shape, it is connected by a spring which gives a reason why the head bobbles with even just a light tap. These bobbleheads are perched on top of desks, shelves, and car dashboards.

Movie-Inspired Bobbleheads
Bobbleheads have been around for quite a long time now. It's been around since at least the 1700s in Asia and the 1800s in western countries. It has evolved from animals, sports stars, entertainers, celebrities, and non-fictional characters. Here are a few examples of bobbleheads that were inspired by popular movies:

The Joker
This psychological thriller of a party clown and aspiring stand-up comedian has been the talk of the town since it was released last August 31, 2019. Aside from his own movie, the Joker has been seen in the film Batman which was first released in 1966. Since then, The Joker has been extremely popular even in children who loved to play as him in costume parties.

This movie was about Arthur Fleck, the Joker, who had a disorder that causes him to laugh at inappropriate times, depended on social services for his medication. He wears two masks - the one he wears for his job as a clown, and the other as his attempt to fit in the world. He was bullied and disregarded by society, which later turned him into a criminal.

Michael Myers
Michael Myers wears a full blue bodysuit and a white mask that covers his whole face completely. Michael Myers is the primary antagonist in the Halloween film series. When he was young, about six years old, he brutally murdered his teenage sister after she had sex with her boyfriend. Fifteen years later, he goes back to his home, Haddonfield, to kill even more teenagers.

Darth Vader
Playing as the secondary antagonist of the film Star Wars trilogy and the protagonist of the prequel trilogy, Darth Vader, formerly known as Anakin Skywalker, was once a heroic Jedi Knight. The Dark Side of the Force seduced him and he became a Sith Lord of the Dark Side. He then led the eradication of the Empire of the Jedi Order. Because of his character, he stands as one of the greatest and most popular fictional victims of all time, which is why people, even children, love him.

Superman was a child sent to Earth from the dying planet, Krypton. He was named Clark Kent by human foster parents Martha and Jonathan Kent. Later, as he got older, his powers were revealed when he attempted to rescue a young boy; this was when Superman was known.

He had the ability to fly and had incredible strength. He was invulnerable and could only be harmed by Kryptonite. His eyes could emit heat with visions that ranged from the microscopic to the telescopic. His vision was also beyond human capabilities, seeing x-rays and radio waves. He could hear even the faintest noise and could hold his breath for a very long time; this was what made him a very famous character.

This Marvel character was a famous character of X-Men mythology. Logan, the Wolverine, finds his way to Japan to meet an old friend, Yashida, a Japanese soldier that Logan saved the life of in World War II, who was dying. After the funeral, Mariko, Yashida's granddaughter, was kidnapped by Yakuza. Wolverine saves her and flees with her, but he gets shot and realizes that his healing powers mysteriously diminished.

Wolverine has a lot of abilities: Animal empathy, superhuman strength, and speed, he has powerful agility, and his senses are way more than human senses. His body is more durable than a human's because his bones are infused with adamantium which makes it extremely difficult to injure or kill him. He also had physical and mental healing capabilities. And above all, he had a pair of three 18-inch retractable claws in between each of his knuckles.

Batman, the secret identity of Bruce Wayne, was the CEO of Wayne enterprises Gotham's protector, Patriarch of the Bat-Family, and a veteran member of the Justice League. Because he witnessed the murder of his parents, he trained himself physically and intellectually and wore a bat-themed attire to fight crime. Along with his sidekick, Robin, and butler, Alfred Pennyworth, he operates in Gotham City.

Unlike most superheroes, Batman does not possess superpowers. He cannot fly like Superman or jump to different places like Spiderman. But because of his wealth, scientific knowledge, detective skills, and athletic prowess, he, too, was powerful.
