In our interview with Bruce Campbell last month, the actor/director mentioned that Dark Horse Comics had plans to make an action figure based on the "character" of Bruce Campbell from MY NAME IS BRUCE. Sure enough, you can now pre-order the figure (due out in April 2009) via the BigBadToyStore website. (Link HERE!)
Check out an item description, along with a pic of the figure below:
One of the most anticipated genre movie releases of the year is My Name Is Bruce, starring the cult hero (or is that antihero?) Bruce Campbell. Campbell is abducted from his trailer-park home to fight against Guan Di, a Chinese war deity. Thinking it all a joke, although thinking clearly is not one of his strong suits in this picture, Mr. Campbell discovers that it all is real, much to his shock and dismay. Mayhem ensues.
The fully articulated doll is formed from a 3-D scan of Campbell himself. Besides a custom fabric miniature version of his actual Hawaiian shirt, which was loaned to us by Mr. Campbell, proving that he’s the kind of partner who would "give you the shirt off his back," an array of movie-specific accessories are included.
– Two of these are miniature "angel" and "devil" versions of Mr. Campbell. They attach to his shoulders using hidden magnets. Additionally, we have:
– Shemps Olde Tyme Whiskey
– A Bruce collectible toy in melted package
– Refreshing Lemon Drink bottle
– A miniature Chins book
– A big honkin’ gun with price tag still attached
Puzzled? You won’t be once you have seen the movie.
