Motörhead’s Warpig And The Misfits’ Jerry Only Get Their Own Action Figures
Earlier this year, retro toy company Super7 revealed that they’d be creating an action figure of the Baphomet from the cover of Slayer’s debut album Show No Mercy. Now, they’ve cranked the volume up even further by announcing that they’ll also be making action figures of a couple of heavy music’s most iconic figures: Motörhead’s classic Warpig mascot (also known as Snaggletooth) and Misfits bassist Jerry Only.
The Warpig action figure comes with the mascot’s traditional tusked steel head and glowing red eyes, though it’s filled out with a leather jacket, jeans, and a huge blood-splattered axe. The figure stands at 3.75″ tall, and features packaging art by Ed Repka (famous for metal artwork like the cover of Megadeth’s Rust In Peace and the logo for American thrash act Dark Angel):
Jerry Only, meanwhile, is featured with his devilock, classically harrowing stare, and Devastator bass. He also comes wearing his spiked Fiend jacket, complete with the Crimson Ghost logo on the back:
It seems like hard rock action figures are becoming a bit of popular trend these days. Megadeth only recently released a pretty fantastic articulated toy of their mascot Vic Rattlehead from the cover of the band’s album Dystopia, and Funko put out adorable plastic Pop! figures of the members of KISS.
That said, if you’re not as much of an action figure fan, there’s also Ozzy Osbourne’s own plush bat with a detachable head, and Black Metal Barbie is always a good addition to any child’s toy box or arson kit. And hey, if you’re more of a rainy-day indoor kid, there are Slayer, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Motörhead puzzles for you to put together in the name of Satan.
