Here's a classic.  Bubbleman first came to be around 1991, but never made it to market.  A few, however, made their way into collector's hands.   The few that did went for big bucks, obviously.  Then, Pez Co. decided to re-issue the little jewels.  The value has since come down :)

This was the first issue, and from what collectors can tell, are exactly like the first few that appeared.

You can tell the first issue as they will not be neon colors and the hat will not match the stem.  Fine, the green hat guy will match the green stem.   Speaking of green.  Look for a few different shades of green.

The picture shows the differences pretty good.  Nice photography, Rob!

Here's the second issue...

These are the neon guys.  Their hats will always match their stems, and I really mean always this time.

So what's next?

The Crystals.  Are they pretty or what!?

What other color could they possibly make?

Glow in the Dark, of course!

Here's a unique fellow...

He's made of solid 24 karat gold.  What?  You don't believe me?  Fine, he's just plastic.
