Idle Hands and Shocker Toys have joined forces to create the first Idle Hands exclusive action figure — MUCUS TICK!!
Mucus Tick appeared in an episode of the classic Tick animated series called “The Tick vs. The Uncommon Cold” where the Tick had an Uncommon Cold. An evil alien took his mucus and gave it life. So, basically, it’s a Tick made of snot. This was a very gross yet memorable episode of the Tick series.
Essentially, this action figure is a variant edition of the Shocker Toys Indie Spotlight Series 2 Tick figure painted translucent green to resemble mucus. The action figure is a limited edition with only 1,000 figures made. Mucus Tick went on sale today Friday May 28, 2010 at 10AM East Coast Time. Mucus Tick is available in the Shocker Toys Web Store.
Seeing the Mucus Tick really brings back memories of that episode. The alien and the Mucus Tick and the Arthur clone really creeped me out. Kudos to Idle Hands for sparking up a bit of geek nostalgia, and kudos to Shocker Toys for their ever-increasing line of indie comics characters. This would be a great addition to any superhero toy collection.
