Beastie Boys Roll Out Their Own Action Figures
Published Aug 02, 2011Last month, Beastie Boys took their "Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win" single and treated it with a video courtesy of Spike Jonze. The clip, which can be seen below, features the three MCs transformed into action-packed action figures. Now, replicas of those figures can be yours for a pretty penny.
As posted on the Beasties' website, the three action figures will run you $750. That may seem like a steep price to pay for some middle-aged rapper toys, but all proceeds from the sales will go towards the Pablove Foundation and Alex's Lemonade Stand, two charities that work with children with cancer.
Furthermore, the action figures are pretty awesome on their own. Designed by Nowhere Ltd. and A Bathing Ape, they measure 11.5 inches tall, and the three dudes come with a variety of different outfits, including changes of shoes, clothes and accessories. The package also includes three Japanese decal stickers and a copy of the Beastie Boys Anthology: The Sounds of Science deluxe anthology double-CD.
