Remember the recent Beastie Boys videos for “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win”? (click here if you don’t) Well, those adorably tough action figures of MCA, AD-Rock, and Mike D are now available to own. Yes, you can own figures of all three Beastie Boys to fight, rap, do inappropriate things with Barbie, or whatever you want.
Sadly, no Santigold figure is included, but go here to buy your own Beastie Boys figures. The proceeds will go to charity (which partially explains the high price tag) and they are promising to make these a limited edition item (which, also, partially explains the high price tag), so don’t sleep on it.
