MCFARLANE TOYS PARTNERS WITH ACTIVISION ON 'GUITAR HERO'

McFarlane Toys announces a partnership with Activision to produce action figures inspired by the No. 1 hit video game franchise of 2007, Guitar Hero. The first series of figures is expected to hit store shelves this October. The new Guitar Hero video game, Guitar Hero World Tour is expected this Fall.

The Guitar Hero franchise has become a cultural phenomenon, selling more than 14 million games and earning more than $1 billion. The series has used a range of both licensed and independent rock music tracks from the 1960s to the present, and include master tracks from the original bands.

Guitar Hero's most popular characters will be represented in McFarlane's first line of action figures:

JOHNNY NAPALM (Read about it on USAToday.com)
'I love the smell of napalm in the morning.' Whoever said that never met Johnny. Up all night thrashing and partying, there is no sleeping for Johnny, just blacking out.

LARS ÜMLAUT (Read about it on EntertainmentWeekly.com)
After an overwhelmingly warm debut a year ago, Lars needed time to cool off. Ready the longboats and crank up the metal. Lars is prepared to reverse the effects of global warming with his icy world tour.

AXEL STEEL (Read about it on MTV.com)
After attaining genuine superstar status, Axel retreated to hometown bonfire parties and barnyard jam sessions. Now he's back in the limelight and looking to destroy anyone and anything dull enough to stand in his path of headbanging destruction!

GOD OF ROCK (Read about it on IGN.com)
Once human, the God of Rock has ascended to the highest level of rocking and plays nightly in a small pub on Mount Olympus. Occasionally, he finds time to guitar battle with mere humans. He also is credited with inventing the lute.

Each figure will have 15-18 moving parts. A unique removable guitar is included with each character, and is interchangeable with the other figures. Each figure also comes with a sculpted Guitar Hero logo base.

McFarlane Toys' 6-inch action figures generally retail for around $10 - $15.
