3 Faces of Danzig [Spencer Gifts, Hot Topic, comic book/specialty stores and Chaser website - $75 each]
For those very bad boys and girls who just love their ‘Evil Elvis’, their horrorpunk goth metal legend Glenn Danzig, here is a tender offering: dolls. That’s right; soft (squeezable) vinyl Danzig dolls. The spirit of daddy Danzig is captured here in these three 10” dolls, representing various incarnations over his prolific, broad, nearly 30-year singer/songwriter career: Danzig with no shirt on, but wearing that big-ass belt buckle and the instantly-recognizable upside-down cross medallion (from the album, Lucifuge); his Samhain stage (from Initium), covered in icky fake blood, and Misfit, looking pretty evil but at least not topless, but wearing a skull and crossbones t-shirt (from Walk Among Us). In these latter two dolls, you get that oh-so-cool Devilock do, too. Lest one feel overcome with Ozzy Osborne-like emotion when cuddling a Danzig and feel compelled to bite… beware: these dolls pose a choking hazard.
