Last year, NECA surprised fans with the release of their excellent Weird Al Yankovic retro-style figure! Now, they have unveiled the next addition to the series in White & Nerdy Weird Al!
The 8" tall figure is based off the 2006 single, which parodies Ridin' by Chamillionaire. The song celebrates nerd culture and makes constant references to such nerdy activities as collecting action figures, playing Dungeons & Dragons and being an expert at trivia based board games.
The song has won numerous accolades since its release. It was the first Weird Al song to crack the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 100, peaking at #9. It was also certified platinum by the RIAA, the first Weird Al song to achieve this feat.
In short, this is an awesome figure, based off one of Al's most successful songs - and we can't wait to get our hands on one! You can check out official images and info of the figure posted below -along with the official music video for Al's White & Nerdy.
NECA is proud to announce our second clothed action figure tribute to legendary musician “Weird Al” Yankovic!
We now begin to celebrate some of his most iconic song parodies, starting with “White and Nerdy,” which was Al’s first single to go Platinum, selling more than a million copies. The figure wears fabric clothing based on the music video and features all new head and hand sculpts. It’s fully poseable and stands 8” tall.
Comes in collector-friendly window box packaging.
Look for the awesome White & Nerdy Weird Al Yankovic figure to arrive at retail this June!
