Beastie Boys Action Figures

The Beastie Boys are behind possibly the coolest action figures of the year. Replicas of the characters in the band’s “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” video are for sale on the Boys’ Website — with the proceeds to benefit two children’s cancer charities.

The poseable figures are super hip, but come with a steep $750 pricetag. The Boys sweeten the deal by throwing in the 2-disc deluxe version of the Beastie Boys Anthology: The Sounds of Science and remind us that all proceeds will be split between The Pablove Foundation and Alex’s Lemonade Stand, two organizations that fight cancer in children. This disease hits home for the band, as member Adam “MCA” Yauch is in the process of recovering from parotid cancer.

For more information about fighting children’s cancer, go to Children’s Cancer Center, an organization that has received the Humane Charity Seal of Approval.

Maybe I’m too much of a microdonations kind of gal, but $750 seems high for characters out of the gate — even those that benefit charities. How much would you pay for these figures?
