Party like it’s 1999 by adding one of No Man Sky’s new custom bobbleheads to your spaceship cockpit.

In Hello Games latest development update the studio announced the figurines will be a new exotic collectible sold by the Quicksilver Bot and can be installed in in any spaceship. The first two to be added to the game are in the form of Specialist Polo and Priest Entity Nada, but others seem likely to follow.

Space travel can be lonely and also hard to get a feel for when you’re doing it through a video game from the comfort of your own home. The cool thing about the bobbleheads is that they’re affected by your ship’s changes in acceleration, helping to imbue intra-galaxy transportation with the sense of weight and power it deserves.

The game is getting a few other additions as well, including some new species of flora and a new set of player-made bases featured in the Space Anomaly. 


  • One of the latest messages from Hello Games was the recognition that space travel was… well, boring. It had become a dull 60 second wait for the next system, and that they needed to do things to make that travel more interesting. I didnt consider the bobblehead option to address that, but its at least a start. I wonder if you can make your own.

    Would be nice if you could take the fauna you’ve scanned, and turn it into a bobblehead. Some of those would be hilarious. Though seeing as thats a Gek, I expect its just the main NPC races. Maybe later though.

    Longer term, I’m now wondering if they will bring in some sort of Thargoid option where you’re kicked out of longer travel mid trip for a different sort of random event. End of the day, its good that they’re still looking at ways to make the game better. As some YouTuber said, I didnt think NMS would be topical 4 years later.
