Boo Berry Is Back Again For Halloween!

Boo Berry Pop! Ad Icons Vinyl Figures - including the limited edition Comic-Con figure!

You guys know I love Boo Berry, and after fighting for so many years just to keep his cereal in circulation, it's nice living in a time now when it's fairly easy to find come Halloween. Plus, nowadays we can look forward to other Boo Berry products being released each year as well. Last year was a good year for Boo Berry; he was officially declared the best monster cereal, some Fruit Roll-Ups were made in his honor, and he even got a brand new Boo Berry Halloween costume. This year, he's back again with two new Boo Berry vinyl toys from Funko as part of their new Pop! Ad Icons collection.

Shiny or not, Boo Berry looks great in vinyl

As you can see, there are two versions of him - the standard Boo Berry and the shiny 2011 Comic-Con variant. They clearly went for the classic Boo Berry look with the droopy eyelids 'n all, so any hardcore fan should be real happy with how these figures turned out. Both of them look great (and ridiculously adorable), so it's absolutely worth tracking each one down if you ask me. Be aware that the Comic-Con variant is a bit tougher to track down as they're part of a limited edition set with only 480 figures ever produced, but I've still seen a few pop up on eBay here 'n there for about 20 bux or so. Did I mention how sickeningly adorable these figures are? I can almost picture them hanging out with Glo Worm, that's how adorable they are.

But vinyl figures aren't the only new Boo Berry product for the 2011 Halloween season...

The Hot Wheels Boo Berry 1929 Ford Pickup Truck!

Hot Wheels has released a special Boo Berry edition of a 1929 Ford pickup truck. Gotta love how they went with the classic look for Boo Berry on the packaging. The truck itself has a really nice overall design which includes the cereal logo in between some creepy old trees on the doors, a few blue bats scattered around, shiny purple hubcaps, and a picture of Boo Berry hovering around a haunted house on the roof. My only wish is that they had filled up the back of the truck with miniature boxes of Boo Berry cereal, as if to suggest it was out making a delivery, but I'm sure anybody who is into papercrafts could make that happen... and they should. Also, if any of you happen to own a 1929 Ford pickup truck, you'd be a fool not to paint it like this. A fool!

Lastly, for those of you wondering about the cereal itself this season, I'm happy to report that it's now more widely available in stores than probably any other year in recent memory. Almost every grocery store in town had some boxes of it, as did Target and Walgreens, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding it. I'd show a picture of the 2011 cereal box, but it's the exact same one from last year when they made Boo Berry look like he has fish lips for some unknown reason. Disappointingly lazy on General Mills' part, so here's hoping they come out with a new box design next year - sans fish lips of course.

All in all, another very solid Halloween season for fans of Boo Berry.

In college, I was prone to keeping my cabinet stocked with FrankenBerry.

I was not, however, prone to keeping the fridge stocked with milk so I often ate FrankenBerry with water from the fountain down the hall.

My local kroger is carrying all three main cereals and fruit roll ups for all three as well.

The store I work at has had a display up all month long for Boo Berry, Frankenberry, and Count Chocula. I picked up one of each and have been slowly enjoying them all month. Now Boo Berry is all that remains :(

Both of those vinyl toys look pretty cool.
My super market is carrying them this year too which they didn't last year and i noticed that Cookie Crisp got a Halloween box update this year with a picture of the wolf howling at a full moon.

Dude...Boo Berry is the best!!! I even ordered a mug years ago that had him on it flying a banner that said "Boo Berry Forever". -RoG- I've just gotta ask...what are your feelings on the gray milk left behind as opposed to chocolate(brown) or strawberry(pink)???

Very nice! I also like the Blox vinyl version as well.

My local grocery stores are super lame. I can't even find Chocula this year. Utah blows.

SewnonSmile - I like the blueish-gray milk, seems eerie 'n all. I do feel like it was a brighter blue color when I was a kid, but I'm sure the ingredients have changed a bit since then.

Dextire - Whoah, thanks for bringing the Boo Berry Blox figure to my attention! I didn't even know it existed, but I love how he looks:

Gonna have to track that one down sometime.

ColdFusion - I look forward to the day that SkyNet activates their new B-1000 Boo Berry bot.

Shadowdancer - Have you tried Target or Walgreens? I've seen the monster cereals at both of those places too.

This brings back memories to my Boo Berry plush toy back when i was a kid in 1996. Now I miss it :(
I LOVE the Hot Wheels car, and the figures are really cool too. Speaking of cereal and cereal mascots, -RoG-, you should try the Cap'n Crunch Halloween cereal that turns the milk into a SPOOKY green color. Watch out though, it's supposed to be the scariest thing of all time.

Justintyler - I've had the Cap'n Crunch Halloween cereal, it's always really delicious. However, the truly scary thing about it if you ask me, is how eating it can shred the roof of your mouth. Then again, that's a sacrifice I think we've all been willing to make in order to enjoy our Cap'n Crunch.

Fred Durst tweeted a picture of his 2 favourite cereals and it was boo berry and the franken berry one. Neither of which are available in the UK dammit

More cereals need toys like that. That's so awesome.

I used to love Boo Berry.

Too bad they only sell it around Halloween time.

That vinyl toy looks like a Super Meat Boy character.

There is nothing that is not awesome about that.
