Jerry Garcia is best known for his work as lead guitarist, singer and songwriter for the Grateful Dead, the most successful touring band in American history. Beyond his musical prowess, Garcia touched millions of lives with his down-to-earth personality and lack of rock-star ego. This statuesque action figure from McFarlane Toys perfectly captures the calm centeredness of Jerry Garcia.
The figure itself stands 6 1/2 inches tall and is articulated at the neck, shoulders, right elbow, left biceps, waist, thighs and ankles. The figure includes removeable glasses and Garcia's trademark Fender six-string that has a soft strap, allowing it to be removed. A 5 1/2-by-8-inch custom base is included to stand the figure on. The base is decorated with stones and roses, with Garcia's name across the top and two figure foot pegs. As an added bonus, the base includes a push button that unleashes a never-before-heard guitar riff sample from the vaults of Garcia's estate.
