R.I.P. George Barris 1925-2015 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/r-i-p-george-barris-1925-2015/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/r-i-p-george-barris-1925-2015/#comments Thu, 05 Nov 2015 21:29:54 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=128313 Legendary car creator George Barris has passed away.   George Barris is known throughout the world as the ‘original’ King of Kustomizers. His creations are legendary in the world of television and motion pictures including the likes of the 1966 Batmobile, General Lee, Munster Koach, Green Hornet, Beverly Hillbillies, Monkee Mobile, Kitt from Night Rider, and many more. In 1945 he founded Barris Kustom Industries and put together a team creating new kustoms, television and movie cars.

 

GBarris1

George’s son Brett posted the news on his Facebook page today:

Sorry to have to post that my father, legendary kustom car king George Barris, has moved to the bigger garage in the sky. He passed on peacefully in his sleep at 2:45 am. He was surrounded by his family in the comfort of his home. He lived his life they way he wanted til the end. He would want everyone celebrate the passion he had for life and for what he created for all to enjoy.

GBarris2

I had the great pleasure too interview Mr. Barris back in 2012 at the Dark Knight Legend Exhibit when they gathered all of the Batmobies for The Geek Shall Inherit podcast.  You can listen to that interview here.

GBarris4

Our prayers go out to the family, friends and fans of Mr. Barris.  He will be missed.

The Munsters Select Action Figures Are Hotroddin’ in Series 3 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/the-munsters-select-action-figures-are-hotroddin-in-series-3/ Mon, 01 Apr 2013 20:59:31 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/main/?p=56944 The Munsters are back! Following up on two successful series of 7-inch action figures based on the classic TV show, Diamond Select Toys has created a third offering of America’s favorite monster family! In the “Hotrod” series, Herman, Grandpa and Lily are back in all-new, episode-specific outfits, with a new family member (Uncle Gilbert) and a new build-an-accessory (the family staircase with Spot)! Collect all four to build another part of 1313 Mockingbird Lane! Sculpted by Jean St. Jean!

The Munsters Select: Hotrod Herman
Clocking in at 350 pounds and 7 feet 3 inches tall, Herman Munster was built in 1850 by Dr. Victor Frankenstein, but is nothing like Frankenstein’s monster of legend. A good-natured, soft-spoken funeral home employee, Herman is a World War II veteran, a good husband to his vampire wife Lily and a loving father to his werewolf son Eddie. This 7-inch scale figure depicts actor Fred Gwynne as he appeared in the 1965 TV episode “Hot Rod Herman,” when he got mixed up in drag racing and lost the family Koach. The Select version of Herman includes parts to build the family staircase diorama; the basic figure will also be available at Toys “R” Us.

The Munsters Select: Raceway Lily
Born Lily Dracula of Transylvania, the matriarch of the Munster family is the daughter of a vampire, but werewolf blood also runs in her family, as both her brother and her son bear the curse. Loving dust and decay, she keeps the Munster household nice and messy, and is also an adoptive mother and confidante to her niece Marilyn. This 7-inch scale figure depicts actress Yvonne DeCarlo as she appeared in the 1965 TV episode “Hot Rod Herman,” complete with parasol. The Select version of Lily includes parts to build the family staircase diorama; the basic figure will also be available at Toys “R” Us.

The Munsters Select: Hotrod Grandpa
Sam Dracula, the famous Count Dracula of legend, was married 166 times, and even though his wives are all dead, he still keeps in touch. Over 600 years old, he personally knew King Arthur and Jack the Ripper, can still turn into a wolf or a bat (if he takes his pills) and is also a persistent inventor. This 7-inch scale figure depicts actor Al Lewis as he appeared in the 1965 TV episode “Hot Rod Herman,” when he modified his own coffin into a race car in order to win back the family Koach. The Select version of Grandpa includes parts to build the family staircase diorama; the basic figure will also be available at Toys “R” Us.

The Munsters Select: Uncle Gilbert
The Munster family has many branches, and one branch is inhabited by Uncle Gilbert, a strange, dapperly dressed undersea creature. A resident of the Black Lagoon, he once asked the family to hold onto 180,000 in Spanish doubloons he had salvaged from various shipwrecks. This 7-inch scale figure depicts Gilbert (played by Richard Hale) as he appeared in the 1965 TV episode “Love Comes to Mockingbird Heights.” Uncle Gilbert will only be available as a Previews-exclusive Select figure, and includes parts to build the family staircase diorama.
