This should probably be in my "For Grownups" section here on The Rock Father, but since these are technically toys, I'm rolling with it right here. After announcing his autobiography for November, coinciding with the release of the second film about his life, Action 4 News Anchorman RON BURGUNDY has revealed that he will now be immortalized in action figure form, with a December release planned.
Beeline Creative will issue the entire Channel 4 News team as an 8-inch assortment of Retro-Style Action Figures featuring the likenesses of their alter-egos: Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), Champ Kind (David Koechner), Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) and Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd). Each figure includes a custom tailored suit and signature "Battle Ready" accessory.
Additionally, Burgundy himself will be released as a 13-inch Talking Action Figure. Set to feature 12 iconic movie quotes and "Scotchy Scotch Scotch Vision," Ron will also include 6 accessories and additional outfit.
And, if that's not enough, the discerning Ron Burgundy fan will likely want the Bronze-Style Collector's Bust, handsomely engraved with his full name, Ronald Joseph Aaron Burgundy. It's a fine companion if you're just a general collector of mustached men named "Ron." After all, Beeline has already released their Parks and Recreation Ron Swanson Bust.
