Aggronautix is set to release limited-edition figures of GG Allin “1991” (2000 numbered) and Tesco Vee of the Meatmen (1000 numbered). Each “Throbblehead” figure stands at 7 inches tall, is made of a lightweight polyresin, and will be displayed in a tri-windowed box.
Both figures will be distributed by MVD Entertainment Group – a company specializing in music-related distribution since 1986 – and DKE Toys – a wholesale distributor of urban / vinyl / designer art / objects / toys / figurines.
“We normally don’t carry bobbleheads but I was floored that the folks at Aggronautix would attempt this project,” said Dov Kelemer CEO of DKE Toys. “I figured that if I broke down and made an exception to actually put this (anti-)bobblehead in my collection that others would feel the same. GG Allin… WTF!?!?!?!”
The idea first surfaced two years ago when Aggronautix pitched the GG figure idea to Merle Allin, GG’s brother.
“I had been thinking about doing a GG figure for a while, so when the guys came to me with the idea, I was into it,” said Allin. “The proofing process took a long time, but we got it right. The doll looks really good and I’m happy with it.”
Aggronautix soon discovered another likely personality to polyresinate, Tesco Vee. He states, “As a toy collector of two decades, and classic bobble head collector, imagine just how geeked I became, when informed that yours truly would enter the pantheon of ‘Throbblehead’ punk rock losers, along with poopy soulmate GG Allin!”
Aggronautix is currently working on a Dwarves “Two-Headed Throbble” to be released this summer.
