These are cool. They would go with both my retro 8 inch and vintage 12 inch. I think I'll have to take the dive on these. Nice! But I'll have to wait until I have more I want to order. I won't pay $8.00 shipping for two tiny plastic guitars. That's too much.

$12 each for the 8" versions on their site.

It is just me or is the scale off on those? Judging from the photos of the gene figure with the basses, the basses look tiny.

agreed, especially for something that should have been included with the figure.

And the clever part is, if you use it as a weapon, his axe is REALLy his axe!

These are cool I like the Punisher bass more than the axe one.

Cool! I got an official Ace Frehley Pickups guitar for my Ace when they came out around 15 years ago, and have always wanted to get a similar authentic bass for my Gene, so this is good news!

Hmmmmm. I got to looking at the axe guitar from my McFarlane Creatures Gene which I had been using as a prop for one of retro Demons and noticed some interesting similarities...

Notice the guitar strap on my Creature's axe is identical with the same pattern on it. The FTC axe does have a third control knob on it and the tuners are different.

Scale-wise my Creatures axe looks about the same as what they're advertising...

I wonder if Farrow would have been involved with this? I'm not sure. I'm going to inquire. But it seem pretty close to merit a comparison.

and the CTVT one has real strings, a different sculpt and head shape. I don't think its even a knock off of the McFarlane one you are showing. Too many differences.

The McFarlane version also has real strings. And Farrow confirmed it was not his work. Interesting though they would be similar in scale next to the Mego style figure, since one should certainly be bigger than the other. The axe guitar in particular should be more pronounced on the Gene figure given it's design.

don't look like real strings in your pic. I thought they were sculpted.

I never knew any of those Mcfarlane guitars actually had strings, that's a pretty cool feature for something so small. That's the equivelant of having a Mego scale Uzi with locking mechanism and removeable clip. Too bad it can't be down tuned to drop-C and played. Maybe on the next wave.

The scale of these is way off. It looks like they're playing with children's guitars.
They seem to have been removed from the classictvtoys site. I wonder what's up?

I called them directly and they said they just got more in the shop yesterday. It should be back online shortly. Their selling fast.
