GG Allin Bobblehead
How do I even begin to introduce this one.
GG Allin, is kind of a legend. Not because he was good, but because he was certifiably insane. He was a punk singer in the late 80s, early 90s, known for his outrageous performances.
Now when I say outrageous, I really mean it. He would poo on stage, roll around in it, and eat it. Cut himself on stage, etc. Really, the man was fu*ked up beyond all recognition.
In the late 80s I lived on the periphery of punk. I was a metalhead, and I liked some mainstream punk, like Dead Kennedys, Circle Jerks, Exploited and the like. But GG was at a whole different level. He was Hardcore.
My friend John plays in a band called Out Cold, and a member of that band played guitar with GG Allin. I think he was with them when the band was called GG Allin and the Scumf*cks. Its hard to remember. But I heard all these tales of GG, how he was going to commit suicide at a halloween show and all kinds of disgusting stories. They were so into it.
GG died before he got a chance to kill himself on stage. You can read about the life and times of GG here.
So you can see why it's a suprise to see a GG Allin toy. I know, its not really a toy, but still...
This ghoulish effigy is a striking representation of GG ALLIN circa 1991. The figure, limited to 2000 numbered units, stands at 7 inches tall and is made of a lightweight polyresin. Displayed in a tri-windowed box, here GG is accurately sculpted right down to the tattoos, blood, and filth. It should retail for $20.00 USD
This may be the only bobblehead I will ever own.
