Sex Pistols Action Figures

Via McChris, a pointer to two sets of Sex Pistols action figures by Japanese toy company, Kubrick Toys. One set features the best-known members of the band, and the second applies their aesthetic to a group of brightly-colored bears.

Update: Since Andrew and McChris have suggested bands they'd like to see immortalized as action figures, I think I'll turn this entry into a question: which bands do you think this toy company should translate into action figures next, especially if those figures are brightly-colored bears? I'm still thinking about this one, but I'll put my answer in the comments.

Those bears are pretty sweet. I hope they do Joy Division next...

FWIW, the Kurt Cobain action figure is here.

I'll root for a treatment of Gang of Four in the next series. Maybe they could do an "At Home He's a Tourist" playscape.

Great call on Velvet Underground! Fugazi bears?! Very cool, even if the idea makes my head spin.

Grateful Dead bears!!! ...oh wait.

What about Huggy Bear bears?

Beat Happening would have to be the easiest punk/indie band to translate into bears, since they have that cuddly aesthetic and recognizable iconography.

Okay, I have to say something. Chuck, I get tons of hits from this post! At least one a week...

It's one of my most "popular" entries when it comes to Google searches. I'm mystified by the number of people who do Google searches for "sex in action" and expect to find anything like that here.
