Music Line Continues to Grow

Kid Rock License Being Sought

January 14, 2000

 Rob Zombie

The music series of action figures is one of the fastest-growing lines at McFarlane Toys, For 2000, the music line is going to blow up.

    We are currently in negotiations with Kid Rock to produce his action figure. Rock, whose "Devil Without a Cause" album is certified platinum five times over, was recently nominated for two Grammy award: one for Best New Artist and one for Best Hard Rock Performance for his "Bawitdaba" single.

    Other artists in the 2000 music lineup include metal demon Rob Zombie, shock-rocker Alice Cooper, '60s icon Janis Joplin and the gods of thunders, KISS.

    The fourth series of KISS figures will be more life-like than the superheroic appearance of previous lines. The figs are based on a famous 1976 concert photo of the band, and will, of course, be packaged with instruments for you to re-create your own concert memories.

    McFarlane Toys is currently negotiating with several other music entertainers. Look for more music-related announcements in the near future.
