Variant Ren & Stimpy figures available NOW via Palisades Direct!!
Elkridge, MD (September 14, 2004) – With Palisades Toy’s The Ren and Stimpy Show™ action figures popping up at retail, Palisades would like to take this opportunity to unveil the series’ three variant figures, each of which is available through Palisades Direct.
The variants – Lathered Up Shaven Yak™, Tongue Out Stimpy™, and Paranoid Mr. Horse™ – are available now at www.PalisadesDirectStore.com
“Our original plan was to short pack these figures in the regular retail cases,” commented Palisades President and CEO, Michael Horn, “But in this instance, our research indicated that it might make more sense to sell them on our website. Basically, to make them more accessible for everyone who wants to get them. They’re still very limited, but we’ve narrowed down the hunt for collectors.”
Tongue Out Stimpy
— Stimpson J. Cat is a so large and round, that he is often mistaken for a dog and thrown into the pound with his pal Ren. Stimpy’s passions include Gritty Kitty Litter, and loyalty to his pal Ren… despite the fact that Ren continually takes out his hostilities on his stinky cat friend. This all-new Stimpy, complete with a newly sculpted protruding tongue, comes packaged with his Dr. Stupid hat, his silver Dr. Stupid glasses, a blue littlerbox, a bag of Gritty Kitty Litter, the yellow Ren & Stimpy Secret Club helmet, a figure base, and "CLASSIC" LOG.
Paranoid Mr. Horse
— Best known for his catch phrase, “No sir… I don’t like it,” Mr. Horse appeared on numerous episodes of the The Ren & Stimpy Show. This all-new paranoid faced Mr. Horse variant (with new head sculpt), comes complete with components for making both the “suit” version of Mr. Horse (from the episode “Dog Show”) and the Nipple Fetish version of Mr. Horse (from “Rubber Nipple Salesmen.”), a figure base, and LOG OF THE KLONDIKE.
Lathered Up Shaven Yak
– The mysterious Yak who first appears in his enchanted canoe in the Ren & Stimpy short Yak Shaving Day, Shaven Yak is a fan-favorite who is sure to please in action figure form. This variant "Foamy" Shaven Yak, complete with a lathered up favce, comes with Shaving Scum (which fits on Stimpy’s finger), a glob of shaving cream, face lather, a shaver, a figure base, and SECRET AGENT LOG.
In addition to the new sculptural aspects of the figures, their respective Log “action figures” are available ONLY with these SKUs. A variant Ren will be available through the Palisades Collectors Club sometime in the upcoming few months.
Each figure retails for $15 apiece, plus shipping; supplies are limited, so act quickly, and check out
