From Sony’s Twisted Metal comes a brand new remote-controlled vehicle: the two-wheeled Axel Stunt Machine, featuring a brutal Sweet Tooth figure. The figure is about 6 inches tall and the wheels are…well, considerably larger. If you’re a fan of the game or you just need to relive your childhood with a sweet RC car, get on it.
The character was originally just another part of the Twisted Metal games, but his popularity saw him become the franchise’s stand-out character and the most iconic member of the cast. It’s no surprise that he’s the character who’s been given the most renderings as action figures or on a variety of other Twisted Metal merch.
The Joker might corner the market on Evil Clowns, but it isn’t a monopoly. From Stephen King’s Pennywise to Are You Afraid of the Dark’s Zeebo, the painted, grinning faces have been scaring (and thrilling) audiences for years. But if you were a gamer in the 90s, then you might add another to that list: Twisted Metal’s most popular character, Sweet Tooth.
His flaming clown head burning on the cover of every entry to the Twisted Metal franchise, he was one of the emblems that would come to represent the rise of Sony’s Playstation.
And now, finally, he is brought to life in the real world by the folks at DC Direct–and with their expertise both in figured and the evil clown subject matter, it’s sure to be a stunning piece. You can already pre-order the 6-inch figure now, though it ships in August 2010! ‘Til then, book mark this page for updates!
