Mezco's South Park A.W.E.S.O.M-O Figure

I have maybe a casual passing interest in South Park. Sure sometimes they play them back to back and I end up glued to the TV, but I dont consider myself a big fan. However, today I found something sort of robot related in Mezco's South Park line of figures. This is A.W.E.S.O.M-O. I think it's a play on the name of the Honda ASIMO. I believe there are several series of these A.W.E.S.O.M-O figures. Some have more accessories than others. It seems I got shafted with mine. It only came with two shopping bags as accessories. The other series have spare arms, an anal suppository, a toothpaste tube and shopping bags.

I think the story goes like this, Butters finds a video of Cartman dressed up as Britney Spears or something and Cartman is determined to get it back before his friends find out about it. So Cartman has the idea to dress up as a robot using cardboard boxes to get into Butters' house. Apparently it works. To make a long story short, Cartman has to play the role of a servant robot. There is much more craziness but I'm only here to show off the toy. For a PVC toy based on a 2D cartoon, it's pretty detailed. It has some real nice airbrushing details on the "cardboard" box.

I was psyched when I was opening the package because I wanted to check out the accessories, but I was bummed out when I found out that my version only came with shopping bags.

The cool part is the fact that you can remove the top box to reveal Cartman's head. He doesn't look like he's feeling really well. Nice details again.

If you like it, I sure did, you can grab one for $12.99. I've only seen them at Toys R Us and eBay. Guess which one is cheaper.
