Aggronautix Toys have just released their very first female “Throbblehead” Bobblehead doll, the infamous late Plasmatics’ frontwoman Wendy O. Williams. ” Wendy O. Williams 1982″ – which captures Wendy’s incredible 1982 look – stands at 7 inches tall and is available in the limited capacity of 2000 numbered units. Displayed in a tri-windowed box, she is accurately sculpted right down to the platinum blonde Mohawk, spiked arm bands and tattered post-apocalyptic bikini. I swear to god, when I look at this doll I can almost hear her belting out “Sex Junkie” right now. Punk Rock! Wendy is the sixth punk personality to be polyresinated by Aggronautix.

I found this image at the pop culture website Millionaire Playboy after being tipped off by a Facebook friend. Yes, that is in fact a GG Allin Bobblehead. This uncanny likeness of the late punk/shock rocker (if he could be called a rocker) is made by Aggronautix, stands 7 inches high and is limited to 2000 pieces.

While passing time over at Plastic and Plush, I came across this delightful pink vinyl toy called Hot Cha Cha Cha, by artist Gary Baseman. This special Pink edition figure is strictly limited to 500 units worldwide and comes in an individually-numbered package that’s a work of art in itself. Retails for $99.95. Sounds a bit pricey to me. Your mileage may vary.

Now, this is exciting news. Locoape (a trademarked brand of Toynk Toys LLC.) have created this very attractive “Icon figure” of Motorhead Bassist/Vocalist Lemmy, which I think you will agree is a “must have” for all fans of Motorhead and heavy metal fans in general, not to mention (but you can see I am about to) all collectors of Action Figures of famous rock musicians. Well, all right. Ordering information for Lemmy-in-a-box is available at LemmyFigure.Com.
