Captain Trips on the Road to Toy Aisles

June 29, 2001

Jerry Garcia


McFarlane Toys' newest rock 'n' roll Super Stage Figure, Jerry Garcia, is en route to toy stores now.

    Garcia is a deluxe boxed figure residing in a beautifully trippy package. The figure itself stands 6 1/2 inches tall and is articulated at the neck, shoulders, right elbow, left biceps, waist, thighs and ankles. The legendary singer/songwriter/guitarist is dressed in a pocket T-shirt, jeans and sneakers. Every detail is authentic and approved by Garcia's estate, right down to the missing digit on his right hand.

    The figure includes removeable glasses and Garcia's trademark Fender six-string that has a soft strap, allowing it to be removed.

    A 5 1/2-by-8-inch custom base is included to stand the figure on. The base is decorated with stones and roses, with Garcia's name across the top and two figure foot pegs. As an added bonus, the base includes a push button that unleashes a never-before-heard guitar riff sample from the vaults of Garcia's estate.

    This amazingly detailed action figure will be on store shelves in most areas in mid to late July.
