Hello all,

having trouble researching these 2;

 -

They are only marked Bully. Don't remember if they were from a McD happy meal or not. They look somewhat similar to a black version of a Snik, but no helmets. Haven't been able to find any reference to any gold or silver Sniks/Astrosniks, except the robot one, which these look nothing like.
If any of you very knowledgable people here happens to know anything about these, I would be eternally grateful for any tip or info!

Hi sniksnak,

Welcome to BlueBuddies!

Astrosniks (Sniks) were created in 1975 by the German company called Bullyland also known as Bully. Later on in the 1980s, Astrosniks were licensed to many different manufacturers to produce lots of fun memorabilia! 1983 & 1984 were big years for Sniks merchandise.

Astrosniks McDonald Happy Meals Toys are very popular Snik figures. I don't think your silver and gold Sniks are from McDonalds though.

Black Sniks

The Black Astrosniks have a lot of gold and silver details. Your Snik is called Joker or JokerSnik. Both the golden Joker Snik and the silver Joker Snik are from 1975. There is a cute blue version of Joker Snik from 2002. (Perhaps I like it so much because he reminds me of a Smurf!)

Green Sniks

The gold Robot Snik or RoboSnik you mentioned is quite cute too!

The green astrosniks are the most common color in the series. Most likely people have an image of the green sniks in their minds when they think of sniks!

Hi Sassette,
thank you so uch for a quick and very thorough reply - was very curious as to what "type" of snik they might be and would not have guessed Joker without your helpful info :-)
Very cool to see pics of "my" Joker-Sniks in better condition as well as hearing they are from '75.
Indeed, both the robot-Snik and that blue Smurf-like Joker-Snik are very cute - thank you for including all the pics and research. Such a great help, thanks!
