Officially announced today via their Twitter account (with more details on their website), NECA (National Entertainment Collectibles Association) is bringing “Weird Al” Yankovic into the action figure realm in a big way. Big as in retro-seventies style tall (8”)! The king of parody will arrive adorned in “tailored fabric clothing”.
The first of what NECA promises to be several figures, will feature two interchangeable heads: a 1980’s look (with moustache and glasses) and a modern appearance (longer hair and clean-shaven). Of course no 1980’s Weird Al action figure would be complete without his iconic accordion (included along with a microphone).
According to the teaser on their website, NECA says there will be additional Als released over the next two years. These will be based on the musician’s many parodies.
