Fall Out Boy Figures

Fob

BandMerch, Inc. and SOTA Toys will be producing and distributing collectible
dolls for each member of the multi-platinum rock band Fall Out Boy.
The dolls will be available starting in November 2006 through retail
stores such as Hot Topic, Spencer Gifts and music stores nationwide.

Each
member of Fall Out Boy; bassist Pete Wentz, vocalist/guitarist Patrick
Stump
, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley, has a unique
doll created in their likeness.  The dolls sport replications of the
outfits seen in the band’s video, “A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A
Little More ‘Touch Me’.”  The suggested retail price of the dolls is
$14.99.

Hmm...not sure if these guys are popular enough to warrant figures.  They don't have the fan base of The Beatles or the Gorillaz...but Fall Out Boy fans should rejoice.

REVIEW: Franken Monkey Resin Figures

Img_0478

Background

Out on his own and ready to explore. Our curious little friend escaped from the lab just in the nick of time...or did he?

Atomic Monkey has created a few new products based on their monkey mascot.  The Franken Monkey resin figure has been designed and sculpted by Roberto Jhareghi and is available in 4 different colors.

Packaging

The Franken Monkey resin figures are boxed in a rather ordinary brown cardboard box.  There’s not much reading, nor are there any product photos on the box.  The resin figure is securely packed in styrofoam, to avoid any breaking.

The Figures

The 3” tall Franken Monkey resin figure is currently available in 4 different colors – black, brown, green and pink.  The sculpt is similar on all of the colorways, however there are some slight differences in the color combinations.  The character is in a Frankenstein-like pose, with its tongue hanging out.  They are all secured to a black, circular stand for easy displaying.
