    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 GWAR characters.
    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...

    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. :loco: But how would they figure-fy "The Bleeding"'s cover?
