Fraggle Rock - COTTERPIN!

Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock - Architect Doozer & Cotterpin - BFS 2024

In 2022, Apple TV+ premiered Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock, a faithful reboot of the amazing 1983 Jim Henson series, Fraggle Rock. I love this new series. Some of the character designs have been tweaked, mostly for the better. For instance, a lot of the puppets in the original series had thin wispy hair and dull colors. But in the reboot it's as if the material limitations of 1980's puppetry have been overcome. It honestly looks the way I imagine the 1983 series looked in my memory (but am always critical of when I actually watch the vintage episodes). Cotterpin is the main Doozer character from both series. She is a young Doozer from a long line of hard-hard-wearing construction Doozers who wants nothing more than to be a Fraggle (so she can dance her cares away). This updated design of Cotterpin has fuller hair, brighter colors, and now she appropriately wears her namesake cotter pins in her hair as barrettes. The Boss Fight Studio Fraggle line is very impressive. I can't wait to get the rest.

The texture of this figure is amazing. She looks like she's made of flexible puppetry foam (she's all firm plastic).

Cotterpin comes with her Sticky Goop Dispenser.

Her sticky goop dispenser doesn't fit in her hand well unfortunately. It's as if the rectangular groove made by her grip is angled in the wrong direction. This is my only critique of the figure. She's amazing.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are the three Boss Fight Studio Doozers so far. From Left to Right: Architect, Cotterpin, and Cotterpin's Dad, Flange Doozer.

And here they are with the three Fraggles so far: Uncle Travelling Matt, Red, and Gobo.

Here is Cotterpin with her Funko Pop minifig and her Kid Robot vinyl.
