Shocker Toys acquires licensing rights for GWAR!

Shocker Toys acquires licensing rights for GWAR!
Buffalo, NY. – Shocker Toys announces they have acquired the rights to produce GWAR action figures in Shockini form and 6-8 inch fully sculpted figures. GWAR has been the most horrifying band since it's inception in the 80's, the present and ongoing. Oderus Urungus, Flattus Maximus, Beefcake the Mighty, Jizmak Da Gusha and Balsac the Jaws of Death will be featured in the set based off of their GWARcharacters.
Under a license from GWAR, the GWAR action figures will retail for around $15 and will be available at specialty stores and mass retailers in Summer of 2006. Each figure will come with plenty of murderous accessories and a GWAR comic book for a little reading after dark! Also to be produced will be Shockini versions of GWAR shrunk down into 3 inch block figures they will kick the block figure world square in the blocks!
GWAR came to rock when their creator imprisoned them in an iceberg on the frozen continent of Antarctica. Millions of years later: 1980ish. Glam rock was at its peak, groups like Poison and Whitesnake were dominating the airwaves. They inspired a whole slew of new "hair spray" bands. But little did they know, all of that hair spray put a hole in the ozone - right above Antarctica! Soon the unfiltered gamma rays melted the iceberg and GWAR was free. Taught to use instruments by Sleazy P. Martini and learning the language from watching midget wrestling and MTV they soon became known as the greatest band in the Universe...


About GWAR
GWAR is a satirical thrash metal/punk band formed in 1985-1986 by a group of artists and musicians at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. The band is perhaps best known for their elaborate sci-fi/horror film inspired costumes, raunchy lyrics, and graphic stage performances. For more info visit: http://www.gwar.net/

Yeah, it would be just priceless to see the look on your parents' face when they that you own a statue of two zombies involved in cunnilingus. But how would they figure-fy "The Bleeding"'s cover?

Ace really looks shot to heck and ready to join ANVIL but he seems in good spirits and comes across as a sort of cool dude.

metal bird cage Algunas personas podrían pensar que una jaula de pájaros de acero inoxidable es adecuado sólo para un lugar donde hay un uso intensivo, tales como un centro de cría, una tienda de mascotas o en un hospital veterinario. Otros pueden pensar que una jaula de pájaros hechos de este material sólo puede ser adecuado para un entorno moderno. Se vería fuera de lugar, después de todo, en la casa decorada al estilo victoriano o país.

REALLY disappointed to come into this recently-updated thread to find it's actually from 5 years ago and I can't get these fuckin' awesome-looking figures anywhere now.
