Bobblz is an animated genesis collection of full-body, PFP style collectibles. This collection features 12+ unique rarity slots with over 200 hand drawn traits (resulting in 100M+ animated combinations). Tributes to the greatest athletes of all times from sports such as basketball, football, hockey, MMA, and baseball – these super rares will be regarded as some of the rarest in the collection. All sports jerseys from each of the athletes are remixed and generatively layered amongst quirky and eccentric traits and animations, fashionably styled using the most satisfying color palettes.
Each Bobblz comes with a GIF and static JPG of your full bodied collectable, as well as a GIF and static cropped PFP. Unlock all your assets on the Bobblz website as well as use them to complete gamified challenges, earn your evolving genesis Trophiez (Q1 2023), use in their upcoming game (Q1 2023), and more.
How Bobblz Began
Sven Hansen is a seasoned marketer & serial entrepreneur who has scaled and bootstrapped multiple brands to 7 figure revenues. Loving sports and sporting merchandise, specifically for his favourite hometown Basketball team – the Toronto Raptors. He first learned about the Flow Blockchain through NBA Topshot, which gave him a user experience with the platform like none other. He found it to offer the most accessible crypto wallet payment checkout he’d ever used, provided by Dapper Wallet. Sven knew this was the right place to build an NFT collectables brand and ecosystem. He sought the help of co-founder Travis, a developer with over a decade of experience building and working on some of the most intricate websites and applications. The artist behind the Bobblz artwork comes from co-founder Damien, an illustrator and multi-disciplinary visual designer who has worked with some of the biggest brands in the world, such as Audi, Google, McDonald’s, Staples, Chase, and more. Together the three would take the concept of ordinary old bobbleheads and turn them into something extraordinary, into Bobblz.
The first evolving product on Flow to be launched alongside and directly tied to the Bobblz genesis. Every Bobblz genesis mint holder within the snapshot period will receive a genesis Trophiez sent to them (starting as a small common). What will separate the players from the champions will need to be earned as the genesis Trophiez that upgrade in size and rarity (or don’t) over each quarter across the genesis mint schedule. Trading, upgrades, digital flex, and status – are all core values of the genesis Trophiez evolving product that will drive value up for every Bobblz holder. Each quarter that comes and goes will feature snapshot dates identifying Trophiez holders who also hold Bobblz, which will dictate how the supply and rarity levels amongst that supply vary when the dust settles.
The Future for Bobblz
Beyond the quarterly NFTs being sent to holders, the Bobblz team has big plans for the future. Already building out a platform to replace traditional bobblehead giveaway nights at sporting events, the team is on a path of forging partnerships with sporting teams, athletes and leagues from around the world. Traditionally, IRL bobblehead figurines do not offer much utility at all, and sourcing managers are plagued with supply chain issues and rising costs – not to mention how difficult they are to produce. Bobblehead figurines are ready to be transformed through NFT and blockchain technology. Enter Bobblz.
Creating collaborative partnerships will allow the team to give direct utility to the genesis collection. Negotiation will be worked into every deal to be able to give back to the genesis community that is here to help Bobblz craft the building blocks of a successful NFT brand.
Coming in 2023, look forward to the Bobblz Builder, in collaboration with FlovaLabs (creators of Flovatar). The first customizable NFT bobblehead builder will be here, giving first access and rewarding genesis holders with base and trait packs to start building. Bobblz Builder will enable the customizable digital representation and fandom, ready for the metaverse!
