in Smurf Thoughts

What’s a Snik?

Help me! This week I purchased two Sniks but I have no idea what they are. The Covid-19 lockdown in Melbourne got the better of me and I thought I was being brave buying a new type of figurine. However I am now having some serious doubt as I don’t know what they are other than Sniks. Are they related to the Smurfs? Can anyone help me?

The one with the silver and red rocket on it’s back has the markings – Germany Bully 1982 CE. Snik13 under it’s feet.

The second wearing a purple tracksuit and appears to be jogging – Germany Bully 1982 CE. Snik24 under it’s feet.

I am happy to provide you with any other details about the figurines if required. Any information would be really appreciated as it may inspire me to collect more Sniks or even other different types of figurines. Who knows this could be just the beginning…….

Keep on Smurfin

  1. The Sniks or better “Astrosniks” are a series of cartoons and comics from the 70-80s. They are spacemen who live on a distant planet. Bully’s basic series of puppets consists of 40 basic subjects mostly blue and green, mostly sporting Sniks or engaging in other activities such as smurfs. in addition there are special figures: the baby, 2 girls, the robot, the snikpotamus (a kind of dragon-horse), Pyramido and 2 villains: Perfido and Galaxo. Then there are some very rare figures: the mini spacecraft, smogey the dog, the mini rocket. And the cat, which is not very rare but still expensive. Then there are the spaceship, the spacecraft, the rockets …
    also before this series there were others, with fewer characters in black, yellow, pink etc.and then there are advertising series (Melapi, McDonald’s etc.) and limited edition. finally, bootlegs were produced in Spain, very funny and quite rare. especially the robot 🙂
    I think that after the smurfs it is the largest, most complex and expensive collection of pvcs
