FAT BASTARD 2000 Austin Powers Film 9″ Talking Action Figure McFarlane Toys

The fabulous immensely obese Fat Man was played by the mercurial Mike Myers in Austin Powers films. Personally I preferred Myers in “Bill & Ted” but whatever you might think of Mike’s movies this is an excellent eye catching action figure. Dressed in tartan shorts, yellow jacket & cap just like the real Fat Man and looking like a one ton Sumo Wrestler from Scotland. This is a nine inch tall action figure of Dr Evil’s henchman Fat Bastard by one of our favorite toy producers McFarlane Toys.
.
Colourful and very nicely detailed talking figure with a sound chip with pull string activation, realistic but luckily no smell of poo.
