NakNak

NakNaks were collector's toys manufactured by Hasbro from early 2001 to late 2003. They were battle stacking action figures that "clicked" when you moved their arms or legs. Each arm and leg could be moved in three different positions giving a total of 81 different poses. The catch phrase was coined as "Get the Nak to Stack", for the game involved trying to stack the figures like pickup sticks or Jenga. There was a game component like POG and tried to be a collectable fad. There were rules for their stacking competitions and they were as follows:

1. Two or more players are needed for the competition.

2. Each player must choose their favorite Clik to start the game.

3. Whichever player has the most number of figures in their favorite Clik may go first.

4. The first figure must be in the "Ground-Wild" position.

5. Each player must roll the "Nakitude" and "Stacker" die to place their next figure.

6. If the stack is knocked over, you lose the round.

7. All players must retrieve their figures to start the next round.

8. The player who won the previous round has the privilege of going first in the next round.

9. The competition will go on until two players run out of figures.

10. If no figures are left on your turn, you must forfeit the competition.

11. The player with the most figures left at the end is declared the winner.

The different kinds of NakNaks were classified as "Cliks" based on the types of hands and feet appendages they had: either blocks, toes or hooks.

There was one special figure that could exist within any Clik and was thus named the "Chameleon-nak". It was a holographic figure and was only available by purchasing the first playset produced by Hasbro labeled as the "NakNak Wave Rocker Play-set".

Two Graffitinaks out of the 7 in the known Clik were only available by purchase of the second playset known as the "NakNak Ultimate Play-set".

A third playset was also available called the "NakNak Case Play-set" that could hold up to 30 figures. Five random figures were also included in the purchase of the playset.

There are other Cliks that few know very little about. Here is a brief description of them:

Stunt Stackers- There were 8 figures in this Clik. It was actually a compilation of various figures from other Cliks but given very special gear that could often be used in stacking competitions. Some examples of the gear were a bike helmet, a unicycle, a scooter, gloves and various others. The only way to use a Stunt Stacker in a competition is if the Nakitude and Stacking die were rolled into the "Ground" and "Wild" positions twice.

Holographics- Every collector is familiar with this term. There were at least 3 holographic figures within this Clik, however, only one could be used in any stacking competition, but you must declare whether you want to use one or not. If used, you could pose it in any way on the central stack or on the ground touching the stack, without rolling the dice.

Promo-Naks- This Clik is full of those that were really hard to find. There are 14 in this known Clik. Three of these were available by mail order from Gorton's of Gloucester while two others were specially made called the "Hasbro-Nak" and the "Today Show nak". The Hasbro-Nak has the Hasbro logo on its belly while the Today Show nak represented the Today Show logo imprinted on its belly. McDonald's and Great Clips both had their own representative figures as well, but had a slight difference compared to the ones manufactured by Hasbro. The Hasbro figures had the same design on both sides of each figures's body but the McDonald's "Creepnaks" and the Great Clips "Hairynaks", as they were referred to, had different body and head designs, but the heads clicked when swiveled around. The 7 figures made by McDonald's had some accessories included with them such as alien heads, alien feet, a small stacking pyramid and a carrying case that could hold 5 figures. There were only 2 figures manufactured by Great Clips.
