LET'S GET READY TO ROCK
Slash Action Figure Officially Unveiled
Friday, May 27, 2005

One of rock 'n' roll's greatest guitarists will soon be performing his hits on your toy shelf. That's right, the long-awaited Slash action figure from McFarlane Toys is ready to be unveiled.

One of the best-known, most-talented and easily recognizable artists in music, Slash is a human action figure just waiting to happen. McFarlane Toys was happy to come to the rescue and put our sculptors to work re-creating Slash in 6-inch form.

We'll release two separate versions of the Slash action figure, similar to our initial Jimi Hendrix figure.

The regular clamshell Slash will feature the action figure complete with leather jacket and tophat, guitar, one amp, one speaker cabinet and a support base.

The other version will be a deluxe boxed edition featuring the same Slash figure with guitar. This version, however, has two amps, two speaker cabinets and a larger stage-style base.

Look for Slash to hit store shelves -- the toy aisle, not the music aisle -- in late September. In the meantime, enjoy the photography.
