Bollycao Sonic X Pickers Pogs was an exclusive collection of 102 pogs of the brand Pickers[1][2] based on the Sonic X television series, manufactured by Barcelona-based collectible toys manufacturer Magic Box International (currently Magic Box International Toys S.L.U.[3][4]) trading name of Martomagic S.L. (founded in 1994[5], in Barberà del Vallès by David Bella Martorell and currently based in Sant Cugat del Vallès), and distributed by the Spanish multinational bakery product manufacturing company Grupo Panrico[6][7] (Panificio Rivera Costafreda S.L.[6], founded as Panrico Donuts in 1962[6], in Esplugues de Llobregat, by Andreu Costafreda MontoliúMedia:PressRelease 1998-05-07 Andreu Costafreda creador de Donuts y fundador de Panrico fallece en Barcelona.pdf[8][9] and D. José Javier Rivera y Larraya [10]Media:PressRelease 1998-05-07 Andreu Costafreda creador de Donuts y fundador de Panrico fallece en Barcelona.pdf[8], V Marquis[11] of San Nicolás de Noras[12], two businessmen from Barcelona, Spain), across the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) in 2005.

The pogs were distributed, bundled in Bollycao[13][14] buns (little hot dog buns with chocolate filling) one of Panrico's flagship products and their packets included instructions for several games that could be played with them. A fuzz ball sold separatelly called "Master Ball" was required in order to play the games. Whatever the rules, the games consisted in picking the pogs with the ball since these featured hooks in their back which would stick to the ball when in contact similar to how Hook-and-loop fasteners (often known as "Velcro") work.

Despite the collection being composed of 102 pogs, each pog was produced in three variants (same art, same number, same score, different colors), thus increasing and diversifying the number of pogs to 306 in total.
