TORONTO - City Hall is bracing for a bobblehead bonanza on Friday.

The second edition of the Mayor Rob Ford doll — dubbed the Robbie Bobbie — goes on sale in the City Hall rotunda at noon.

Ford and his staff will be selling the collectibles for $20 a piece with a limit of one per person.

Proceeds from the sale of this batch of 1,000 Robbie Bobbies goes towards the Canadian Cancer Society.

This is the second time Ford has sold bobbleheads of himself for charity.

Here’s a look at how the new second edition matches up to its predecessor:

Robbie Bobbie 1 vs. Robbie Bobbie 2

Robbie Bobbie 1

Cost: $20 (raised more than $12,000 for the city’s United Way campaign)

Height: Around 18 cm tall

Waist: Just under 18 cm

Wardrobe: Dark blue suit, light blue tie, white shirt

Head: Looked more like Doug Ford than Mayor Rob Ford (in our opinion)

Robbie Bobbie 2

Cost: $20 (proceeds going to the Canadian Cancer Society)

Height: 17.5 cm tall

Waist: Just over 16.5 cm

Wardrobe: Black suit, red tie, white shirt

Head: Bigger actual bobbling noggin compared to the first edition (looks more like Rob Ford than Doug Ford)

Body: Still a bit slimmer than the real mayor

Benefits: If Mayor Rob Ford keeps his workout regime up, he may soon match the appearance of his second edition Robbie Bobbie. Also, his outfit matches the one the actor was wearing on Saturday Night Live.
