We’re on a highway to Hell, and along the way, we’ll be picking up these fantastic figures of AC/DC’s late singer Bon Scott and legendary schoolboy guitarist Angus Young. The long-touring rock group from Australia is the latest band to NECA’s line of 8″ tall action figures. Yes, you can, very shortly, create a diorama with Quint from Jaws with Angus Young, Pinhead, and Elvis.
If rock singers were judged on a scale of 1 to 10, Bon Scott turns the dial to 11. One of the most influential front men of all time, Bon Scott’s high-voltage vocals and rock ‘n roll lifestyle set the bar for a generation of aspiring musicians. This fully articulated and extremely tattooed action figure is based on Bon Scott’s appearance in AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” music video and stands 8 inches tall. Comes with microphone and alternate head. Window box packaging.
The lead guitarist, who’s always dressed like a schoolboy, is also joining Bon Scott. Angus Young, one of the greatest showmen guitarists ever, will be present in his signature uniform and a few interchangeable accessories.
It’s hard to find a rock fan alive who hasn’t heard of Angus Young. This king of hard rock is the core of Aussie band AC/DC. His electrifying guitar work and unforgettable songs have driven them to superstardom around the world. This fully articulated action figure is based on Angus’ appearance in the “Highway to Hell” music video and stands 8 inches tall. Comes with guitar and strap, hats, plus interchangeable heads and hands. Window box packaging.
I know NECA’s trying to recreate the Highway To Hell look with Angus, but that doesn’t look much like him. He seems a bit too much like a cherub. Bon, on the other hand, is spot on. If you’ve ever seen footage of Scott or any of the early AC/DC music videos, he has a unique look when he stares into the camera. NECA’s artists captured that perfectly here.
Bon Scott passed away in 1980 after partying too hard. In his place, Brian Johnson stepped and remained the lead vocalist for decades. Over the past 47 years, the band has released 15 albums, with Back in Black selling 50 million copies. The band still tours to this day, although it’s not clear how much longer Brian Johnson will be the frontman. He had taken a break not too long ago because of his health. Angus Young, though, still manages to keep up the high-energy antics on stage even though he is now 67 years old.[Source: NECA] [Source: NECA]
