Buckethead\'s Toys

Well, I\'m sure all of us Buckethead fans know he has a lot of strange toys, including action figures, masks, and a bunch of other wierd stuff. Does anyone know where he gets all these crazy things?

I\'m really interested in trying to find one of the decapitated hand gloves that you see him use. Does anyone know where to get one of those, or how one would go about making one? Also, does anyone know if there are any existing Buckethead action figures, like the one seen on the cover of Secret Recipe.

I think that would be a really cool thing to have in Buckethead\'s toystore, actual toys!

Solar

That\'d be cool if Travis actually sold Bucklethead\'s Toys as well as his albums... I doubt sales would be high enough to keep it going however. I would probably buy an action figure, myself.

Boots

I know that one of the stops he likes to make is a store called Halloween Express. I also hear that he likes Toys R us.

Well, thanks for your help, but I searched all over the Halloween Express website and could not find that decapitated hand glove that I want. I\'ve been trying to think of how to make it, and it would be really tough.

But Solar I agree that having a Buckethead action figure would be really cool. Buckethead himself must have one, maybe the only one, the one used or the cover of Secret Recipe. When I ordered the Secret Recipe DVD I actually thought that I was going to get a Buckethead action figure, from the pics on the internet it looked real.

Whatever, it\'s a fun thing to think about, we\'ll probably never see anything like that in the toystore though.

Nope it ain\'t on there. The one I\'m looking for is the one that Buckethead uses. It\'s an optical illusion. He straps this thing on his arm that looks like a glove, which is holding his own wrist, this glove also has the stump of the hand sticking out the other side. So he moves his real hand, which looks like the decapitated one.

Here it is in action:

The part where he uses it is at about 6:32, it really is quite cleverly designed.

If Buckethead had held out a little longer and stayed with Guns n\'Roses, there may well have been an official Buckethead toy. There\'s an official Slash (guitarist) toy, which looks pretty good. There\'s never been an Axl toy, as I guess Axl\'s doesn\'t wish to ever be sold in plastic form.

I have no idea of the size of Buckethead\'s user base, but I do know that you have to sell enough to make the \'tooling\' worth while. I was speaking to \'someone\' over at Plastic Fantasy once, as they were lazer scanning in various adult models/stars to be turned into figures. To my knowledge, the company quit afer a limited run. So the only plastic fantasy models remaining could be worht something. This company only appears to have 3 models left http://darkfigures.com/plfaadsu.html

Maybe one day there will be an offcial Buckethead toy.

On a side note. They made some figures for Kill Bill, but they never bothered to release a figure based on the Kill Bill nurse as played by Daryl Hannah, and the Ulma Thurman doll kinda sucked too.

i would so buy a Buckethead action figure.
there used to be some kind of thing where you could send a request to McFarlane Toys or something to make a Bucket figure, but i doubt enough people did, and they probably wouldnt do it anyway. :(
