Beavis & Butt-head: Cornholio

From all the cartoons from South Park to The Simpsons, Ren & Stimpy and more recently Family Guy sort of "reality check" series, I´ll have to go with Beavis & Butthead. Uh... hu hu hu... that was cool. Hope it doesn´t say much about me, but I just love those 2. Especially Beavis who is always out of everything. And anyone who knows Beavis, knows the mighty Cornholio!

Created by Mike Judge and sculpted by Clayburn Moore, this is one of 3 action figures from 1998.

MOC, Moore Action Collectibles, 1998.

Comes with cool accessories and voice chip technology!

A long-awaited creation, Cornolio was recommended for mature collectors (ages 14 and over). What? Mature? What you mean?

The initial idea or concept was to insert (he said insert uh hu hu hu) the voice chip in the figure itself, but Moore (and MTV) felt quality should come first and thus the stand with 3 phrases was included.

Figure: "Cornholio". Beavis´s dorment persona. Moveable legs and arms (8 articulation points). His shirt reads Death Rock instead of Metallica to avoid licensing problems.

Included accessories: Nachos, soda and the mic with stand from Cornholio´s buttnicks "poetry session".

ToyFare magazine #15 (Nov 1998) gave B&B figures the cover, and a huge article to go with it.

 Although designed to be a small statue/action figure, you can surely move it around in Cornholio ways.

A brilliant work by Clayburn Moore. Always striving for perfection, he (again) did a great job here.
