Toy News:
View Askew Announces New Figures
By Brian Jacks

03.27.03


Come this week, Kevin Smith fans will see the launching of the first in an ongoing series of Clerks InAction Figures. Bucking conventional wisdom and market trends, the figures have zero posability and zero articulation.

"I wanted to make a line of toys that mirror my sex life," explained Clerks creator/film maker Kevin Smith, "Zero action."

The Clerks InAction Figures are the first in a series of plastic toys coming out this spring. Series 1 features Jay, Silent Bob, Randal and Dante from Kevin Smith's first hit flick Clerks. Based on designs by Clerks cartoon animator Stephen Silver, sculptor Jon Matthews brings these characters to life with incredible style and attitude. All figures measure roughly 5" tall and as said time and time again, feature no articulation whatsoever.

Series 2, scheduled for a Fall 2003 release, will feature characters from Mallrats that include Brodie, Willam, Jay, Silent Bob, Steve-Dave and Fanboy. With two releases scheduled per year, future series will feature a wide array of characters from all of the Kevin Smith/View Askew movies; Dogma, Chasing Amy, and Jay & Silent Bob Strikes Back.




"We will not rest until the most menial of character from Kevin's film, has their day in plastic," stated Graphitti Designs' President Bob Chapman. Taken away with a gleam in his eyes, Chapman was not available for further comments.

At a suggested retail price of nine thirty seven ("Thirty seven?!?"), these Clerks are easy to swallow (just ask Veronica).
