MILWAUKEE, Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled the first Home Alone Bobbleheads. The Limited Edition series features Kevin (played by Macaulay Culkin), Harry (played by Joe Pesci) and Marv (played by Daniel Stern). The bobbleheads are available exclusively in the National Bobblehead HOF Online Store for $30 each, or $80 for the set of three, plus a flat rate shipping cost of $8. Only 5,000 of the Kevin and 3,000 of the Harry and Marv bobbleheads were produced in the limited edition series.
Home Alone was released on November 16, 1990, and is consistently cited as one of the most beloved movies of all time. It holds records as the highest-grossing live-action comedy film and the highest-grossing Christmas film of all time. The movie also held the record as highest-grossing live-action comedy worldwide until 2011 and is one of the 30 most-liked movies on Facebook.
"As my favorite movie, it has been exciting to see the bobbleheads go from an idea to a reality," said Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. "The bobbleheads were over a year in the making, but have been well worth the wait! I would encourage anyone interested in buying them to act now, as the level of interest has been unprecedented."
"When the bobbleheads arrived last week, we were blown away by the amazing quality and detail," said National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum Co-Founder and President, Brad Novak. "These are going to be the ultimate gift for any Home Alone fan this holiday season!"
The bobbleheads were produced by NECA exclusively for the National Bobblehead HOF and are officially licensed by 20th Century Fox.
About Home Alone
When Kevin's family left on their European vacation, they forgot one little detail: Kevin. But as it turns out, being left behind has never been so much fun, as the 8-year-old uses every hilarious trick in the book to defend his home from a pair of bungling burglars who call themselves the Wet Bandits. The bobbleheads are officially licensed by 20th Century Fox. Home Alone was written and produced by John Hughes and directed by Chris Columbus.
