McFarlane Making 'Guitar Hero' Action Figures

by Rainier on June 27, 2008 @ 3:17 a.m. PDT

McFarlane Toys announces a partnership with Activision to produce action figures from the hit video game franchise, Guitar Hero, with the first line is expected to hit store shelves this fall.

Represented in the first line of action figures are four of the Guitar Hero game’s most popular characters:

  • JOHNNY NAPALM
  • AXEL STEEL
  • LARS ÜMLAUT
  • GOD OF ROCK

“We have very recently begun creating toys based on video games,” says McFarlane Toys CEO Todd McFarlane. “With Activision, we get to work on arguably one of the biggest video game franchises out there, and capitalize on the wide-ranging demographic that encompasses this game.”

Each figure has 15-18 moving parts. Additionally, a unique guitar is included with each character that is removable and interchangeable with the other figures. Each figure also comes with a sculpted Guitar Hero logo base.

McFarlane Toys’ 6-inch action figures retail for $10-$15.
