McGurk was a cartoon character created by Tom Medley for Hot Rod Magazine. MPC leaped onto the hapless character's popularity, offering an assembly-required, surfer-dude representation that proved most popular for its hip outlandishness.
The McGurk "Surf Rod" figure stands about 8" and his engine-propelled surfboard measures 12": an impressive scale in either case. McGurk also features a movable torso to give him extra expression.
The MPC reissue contains a McGurk comic strip; a collectible sticker and improved decals.
It's so cool to see companies re-releasing these old, oddball favorites (also see Collectible Time #60; May '16: Lindberg's Mad Maestro). They sure warm the heart and are a swell way to add some good-spirited weirdness to one's collection.
The McGurk kit goes for around $25 at most retailers. Get yours today while the opportunity is at hand!!! Vaaa-rooom!!!
