We’ve looked at Youtooz collectible vinyl figures before here on Toy Wizards and have given them a cool pat on the back for being the only company to lean into memes, streamers, and other “so quirky influencers”. But I’ll speak for myself– sure, I can meme a meme, but when it comes to some of these popular noisemakers on that information super highway, I’m often left lost.
But not this time– welcome AVGN, The Collectible Vinyl Figure. The Big Daddy of YouTube funny people and video game content makers. Hell, AVGN pre-dates YouTube, as many of us know James’ first video where he was a snarky voiced gentleman ripping apart an old game was released in 2004. Me personally, I’ve been watching since 2006– I used to huddle around the computer in the computer lab and watch with either my boy friend at the time or my buddy Mike Miller. The boyf was gone but the love of AVGN (or at the time, Angry Nintendo Nerd) reigned supreme and my love for the character and James’ legacy strongly rides the storm to Valhalla to this very day. And hell, AVGN is freakin’ funny!
Oh right- toy. Yeah, it’s vinyl and it’s stylized and it’s cool– buy it.
The new AVGN vinyl collectible from Youtooz will likely cost about $30. Preorders for this toy open June 11th, 2021 and it will ship October 8-15th, 2021. You can bookmark the sale page below and seriously– get one if you want one. Youtooz always sell out and certain toys are worth tons on the secondary market.
Official product description via Youtooz:
He’s gonna take you back to the past to play the games that suck ass. He’d rather have a buffalo take a diarrhea dump in his ear. He’d rather eat the rotten bum of a road killed skunk and down it with beer! He’s the angriest gamer you’ve ever heard. He’s the angry video game nerd!!! Standing 4.8 inches tall, this collectible is highly detailed, showing AVGN holding a gun and wearing a cape. He wears a futuristic headset, and an angry expression. His white dress shirt is untucked, and brown slacks are wrinkled over top black and white sneakers. The double walled window box is illustrated to show Angry Video Game Nerd’s home on fire. This collectible ships in a matte, embossed, protective outer sleeve.
