    I don't have the game yet but I thought that we would need this topic anyway, now or later...

    So, where are they to be found ?

    I found one in Vault 101 on the desk of the players dad (also seen on one of the first released screenshots). Found a second in Sheriff Simms home. The one in Simms home is for strength. The one in the vault for doctor skill, when I remember correctly.

    I can find neither the Strength [spoiler:7648f57a71](supposed to be at Simm's home in Megaton)[/spoiler:7648f57a71] nor the Repair one [spoiler:7648f57a71](supposed to be at King's home in Arefu)[/spoiler:7648f57a71] - I thoroughly searched both locations, but they were nowhere. The Medicine one and the Science one were where they were supposed to be. Are the locations somewhat random or is this a bug (I'm playing on the PS3)? Haven't looked for any others, as I'm pretty early in the game still, so I can't say if any other's are missing from their places, too...

    In Simms home, you need to go to the second level and in the small room there. The bobblehead should be on his desk, when I remember correctly.

    I know, it just isn't (there's a teddy bear there, tho). Same for the one in Arefu (and for this one there's not even a teddy in it's place)... :(
    PS3 bug?

    Nah, the same thing happened to me on PC. I found Medicine and Intelligence a-ok but Strength just isn't there.
    Maybe because Simms is dead?

    Actually he's fine - I shot Burke in time to save Simms...

    Ok, so I tried again yesterday evening, and behold, the Strength bobblehead was found were it was supposed to be! The only difference this time was that I broke in into Simms house instead of entering when the door was unlocked while he was at home... Haven't checked Arefu yet, but I guess it might be the same there...

    Thanks, but the list is also linked to in the second post in this thread. My point was that the bobblehead wasn't in the very location listed there - until I actually broke in instead of waiting for the door to be unlocked.

    They are activated when you pick them up and are never deactivated.

    The collection machine in your home is just for show

    and they also allow you to keep track of which BH's you have collected.
