Johnny Cash is the epitome of the American singer/songwriter. For nearly fifty years, Cash entertained people from all walks of life with his combination of energetic and melancholy songs. His love, patriotism, and redemption lyrics cemented his place as a legendary musician.
Now the Hall of Famer has a retro-styled action figure from Super7. The ReAction figure, styled after the toys of the 1980s, catches the singer’s likeness surprisingly well. This 3.75″ tall representation of The Man In Black is $18 and comes with a guitar. The blister card is a work of art featuring the man himself.
Super7’s latest ReAction figure pays tribute to The Man in Black, who’s relatively stripped-down, no-nonsense musical style entertained and inspired just about anyone who had the chance to hear it. Johnny Cash performed for prisoners and Presidents alike, and left an indelible impression on America and its music.
