Following its official launch last week, the next drop on Blu Goblin will be a limited edition replica of the bronze Bully trophies, celebrating the 40th anniversary of Bullseye and in support of the Stroke Association.
Crafted from polystone resin and painted, each replica comes with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity and is delivered in a bespoke presentation box.
In the early days of developing Blu Goblin, Louis Kennedy approached Bulldog Licensing to discuss opportunities from the portfolio of brands it represents, including Bullseye.
“We loved the Blu Goblin model as soon as we saw it,” commented Vicky Miller, licensing director at Bulldog Licensing. “Creating high quality, limited edition products for fans and supporting incredibly important causes at the same time is a winning combination. We are thrilled to be working with the team to launch this very special Bronze Bully – a super, smashing, great way for fans to celebrate 40 years of their favourite game show.”
Laura Wood, brand and social media manager for Bullseye, added: “The Stroke Association is a charity that is very close to our hearts, and having just celebrated our 40th anniversary, partnering with them and Blu Goblin to bring replica Bronze Bully Trophies to our fans feels very special to us. As Jim Bowen would have said, this is a ‘super, smashing, great’ partnership.”
A key feature of the partnership is to raise funds and awareness for the Stroke Association, a charity working across the UK to support people to rebuild their lives after stroke. The charity’s work has particular significance to Bullseye fans as long-time show host Jim Bowen survived two strokes.
For each limited edition Bronze Bully sold, Blu Goblin will donate 10% of the sales to the Stroke Association.
Tracey Richardson, licensing and partnerships director at Louis Kennedy, said: “I recommend all Bullseye fans, darts enthusiasts and Stroke Association supporters visit www.blugoblin.com now, where they can sign up for our newsletter, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram, to ensure they are the first to know when the limited edition replica Bronze Bully trophy is available to order.”
