Run Limited To 3,000 Pieces
The First Piece Of The Production Line Being Auctioned Off On eBay
(Congers, NY September 4, 2007) Wizard Entertainment announced today the sale of “Beefcake” Cartman from Mezco Toyz. The exclusive is available at wizarduniverse.com and is limited to 3,000 total pieces. Additionally, the very first “Beefcake” Cartman ever produced is being auctioned off on eBay, giving collectors a chance to be the first person to own this very unique piece.
Eric Cartman, the foul-mouthed sociopathic youngster from Comedy Central’s hit show South Park, is once again being immortalized by Mezco Toyz, this time as “Beefcake” Cartman. The exclusive piece, http://wizarduniverse.stores.yahoo.net/aug079002.html which is sure to be a welcome addition to the ongoing series of South Park figures, commemorates an episode from Season 1. Cartman needed to “beef-up” in preparation for the arrival of Kathie Lee Gifford, and he did so by consuming Weight Gain 4,000 until he became morbidly obese and ended up on Geraldo.
As part of the 3,000-unit exclusive run, Wizard is holding a very special eBay auction for the first piece received direct from the factory. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... :IT&ih=011 The winner will receive a letter of authenticity signed by Wizard Editor-In-Chief Scott Gramling, verifying the information. The auction, which starts today (9/4) runs for one week. The winning bidder also receives the figure approximately two weeks before the rest of the units ship out.
“We are very excited to have partnered with Mezco Toyz to be the exclusive distributor of this remarkable piece,” said Scott Gramling, Editor-In-Chief, Wizard Magazine. “Given the extraordinary craftsmanship of the Mezco team, the continued popularity of South Park and specifically Eric Cartman, we have no doubt about the level of excitement the piece will create for collectors and fans of the show.”
“Beefcake” Cartman wears a BEEFCAKE muscle shirt and comes complete with a can of Weight Gain 4,000. He is packaged in deluxe clamshell packaging.
Products will ship on or about September 30.
