McFarlane Toys Announces Slash Action Figure
Legendary Hard Rock Guitarist Figure Set for Release in July 2005

TEMPE, Ariz., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- McFarlane Toys is pleased to announce the latest figure to join our expanding collection of music figures. Slash, the greatest guitarist to come out of the late 1980s, and a former member of one of the top rock bands of all time, has become the latest edition.

With his trademark top hat and omnipresent cigarette, the guitarist born Saul Hudson challenged and destroyed the stagnant musical scene of the late '80s with his former band. Slash still remains one of the premier hard-rock guitarists of all time, touring currently with Velvet Revolver whose debut album, Contraband, has reached platinum status.

"It's extremely flattering and humbling to be immortalized in plastic," said Slash.

The figure will feature Slash with his top hat and leather jacket while playing guitar. It will be available at mass retailers in July and will sell for $10 - $12.
