Exciting news at this hour for fans of the Beastie Boys and collectibles: The three emcees are now selling limited edition versions of their action figures to raise money for two charities that work with kids with cancer (the Pablove Foundation and Alex’s Lemonade Stand). In an email sent to fans with the subject "They're not dolls they're Action Figures," the hip-hop trio confirms that "these are the very same dashing figures that you feast your eyes on in the video. Produced by Nowhere Ltd./ Bathing Ape, these are some real limited edition, explicit, bottle service/ v.i.p. type items." Obviously, this sort of luxury good doesn't come cheap.
The set of three "fully dressed" Action Figures costs $750, and includes the 2-disc deluxe version of the Beastie Boys Anthology: The Sounds of Science. Yes, it's a big investment, but don't worry—if your significant other has any "issues" when he or she sees the credit card bill, just quickly open up the website for Alex's Lemonade Stand. See, you're just thinking of the children!
