Spinal Tap A to Zed

Spinal Tap dollsAction Figures: Poseable David, Derek and Nigel dolls released in the fall of 2000 by Sideshow Toys. The 12-inch figures are dressed as the band members appeared in the film while performing "Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You (Tonight)." Sculpted by Mat Falls, each sold for about $25. David came with a Cherry Burst Gibson Les Paul guitar, Jeanine's zodiac sketch pad and a miniature Intravenus De Milo album. Nigel had a white Flying V guitar, an amp knob that goes to 11 and the Shark Sandwich album. Derek had a white B.C. Rich Eagle bass, a foil-wrapped zucchini and the Rock and Roll Creation album. Each figure also comes with a guitar-shaped, autographed foot stand and arrives in a "full color" black box. Sideshow also planned a second series of Tap dolls that spoke, but they never came to be. Said Derek: "My legs are so much longer than they are in real-life. I'm the same height as David and Nige, which is basically a revelation to all of us." (ME)
