Metalocalypse toys are (possibly not) coming...

Good news- someone has the Metalocalypse toy license.

Bad news- It's Shocker Toys and they look like ass.

Shocker has a bad track record of making a LOT of toyline plans and most of them never come about. They've managed a lot of their featureless Stikfas-type block figure stuff(most of which is unpainted) at SDCC but nothing at retail.

So far all they produced was a small handful of each figure of Nathan and Murderface. And in the tradition of their superhero line, the toys manage to look like cheap PVC junk. Nathan is too skinny and he looks like Skeletor in a wig. He's not even holding the mic properly. Shy of their initial run I wouldn't count on seeing these mass-produced.

I honestly wonder how this company gets licenses. They were reporting on an Extreme Ghostbusters license, but it appears as if Sony was smart enough not to let this company have ANY GB licensing(that's the thing about this company- they will announce they have a license before talks even begin!).

There's a review for them with clear pictures here:

They're pieces of shit. It looks like Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo from southpark attacked murderface, literally.

Yea, when I first heard about 'em I was hoping to maybe get the whole band up on the shelf playing instruments or something, those are just garbage. I'd be ashamed to own the metalacalypse franchise, and have figures like that hit the public. I've seen better $1 figures from china at the fleamarket of various things.

Interesting, last I heard Kidrobot had the Adult Swim license.

EDIT: Ah they are doing 3 inch blind boxed figures...I was thinking they would be doing Metalocalypse in the same way they did Gorillaz.

Quote:
Kidrobot will develop figurines for a portfolio of characters featured during Adult Swim’s lineup. Starting in February 2008, 3-inch Blind Box mini figures will be available for fans willing to take a chance on what character they actually get inside. The chances of getting a particular figure are listed as percentage rates on the side of each branded box. All figures are wrapped in foil to prevent anyone from sneaking a peek at which character is featured, maintaining the experience and value to the line of figures. Kidrobot will feature 16-20 different figures per series, and be made available in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Latin America.

Not a Metalocalypse fan, but if I were, I would be severely dissappointed in these POS. I mean, these are horrible.

Way to fail, Shocker Toys.

Just stick to your joint rip-offs of Stikfas and Kubrick.
