Circle Jerks’ iconic ‘Skank Man’ is now an action figure
Hardcore legends Circle Jerks are not only in the process of reissuing classic albums, their iconic 'Skank Man' mascot is getting a new life too. He was recently immortalized as a bobblehead, and now he's an action figure, courtesy of Super 7's ReAction series. You can pick one up HERE. The product description reads:
It’s not easy to capture the energy and attitude of Punk Rock in a single image, but the picture of Skank Man captured that ethos so well it was adopted by the Circle Jerks as their band mascot logo.
This 3.75” articulated Circle Jerks ReAction figure of Skank Man with determined facial expression and Punk Rock attire looks ready to let loose in the nearest mosh pit he can find.
We could all use a bit of that Punk edge and energy in our lives sometimes and adding the Circle Jerks ReAction figure of Skank Man will give a little piece of that to your collection.
They look like this:
