LEXINGTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Keep an eye out for some small blonde gentlemen wearing blue and yellow jumpsuits in and around the Boston area.

The little strangers are actually 3D-printed bobbleheads of Vault Boy, the mascot of the Vault-Tec Corporation from the popular video game series "Fallout."

Maxwell Scheller, a video game fan from San Diego, made the bobbleheads himself and has traveled to Massachusetts with his parents to place them at landmarks found in 2015's "Fallout 4," which uses Boston and the surrounding area as the setting for the game. Now he is inviting residents to participate in his Vault Boy scavenger hunt that spans from Boston to Concord.

"The intelligence one, which is at the Boston Library, already found," Scheller told WBZ NewsRadio Thurdsay. "The speech one, which is at Park Street Station, in 'Fallout 4' there is a vault there. I also left one at the North End Church and someone found it, commented."

This is not the first time Scheller has visited the real world inspirations for the "Fallout" series to hide his creations.

"Made these snow globes from '[Fallout] New Vegas,'" Scheller said. "Ended up doing my own town of San Diego, then Los Angeles, then Phoenix and San Francisco. Last September, I did Washington D.C. with my mother."

Scheller hopes his scavenger hunt will spread some joy for fans of the "Fallout" franchise.

"I like seeing how people are going to react to this," Scheller said. "And who knows, maybe when the next 'Fallout' game comes, there’ll be bobbleheads there."
