US: Guitar Hero action figures on the way

McFarlane Toys partners with Activision for first wave of collectables.

McFarlane Toys is expanding its range of action figures after inking a deal with video games publisher Activision to produce collectables based on the smash hit Guitar Hero.

Arriving in the US from November, the most popular characters will be represented in the first wave of figures. These will include Johnny Napalm, Lars Ümlaut, Axel Steel and God of Rock.

Each figure will have between 15 and 18 moving parts and will come with a unique removable guitar, which is interchangable with the other characters. Each also comes with a sculpted Guitar Hero logo base.

McFarlane's six-inch action figures generally retail for around $10-$15.
