Crass anarcho-punk action figure: Do they owe us a plaything?


 
Plastic Passion Custom Toys recently posted an action figure of Steve Ignorant, singer of the band Crass, to their Facebook page. As far as we can tell, this appears to be a one-off and not for sale to the general public. There’s also no word on whether or not Penny Rimbaud or Eve Libertine figures are forthcoming.
 

 
Crass, arguably the most important of the ‘80s UK “anarcho” or “peace punk” bands, excelled at “branding”—as evidenced by the ubiquitous “Crass symbol” which still adorns spray-stenciled leather jackets and squats almost four decades on. It’s unlikely, however, that the band would have ever chosen to brand themselves in this way, in action figure form, though they weren’t completely opposed to novelty.
 

 

 
Plastic Passion Custom Toys creates new figures by sculpting and painting over repurposed old figures. Check their page for more, including their terrifying Pope Ratzinger “Vintage Villain” figure.
