“There’s nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend.”
Bob Ross, the legendary painter and host of the iconic PBS television show The Joy of Painting, has become the latest addition to the line of clothed action figures from New Jersey-based specialty collector company NECA.
Standing at 8-inches tall and fully articulated, the miniaturized version of Ross sports his signature on-camera look, a button-down shirt, jeans, and perm hairstyle. The figure comes complete with a paint palette, two brushes, a palette knife, and a large easel display. The easel displays a colourful mountainscape, similar to the masterpieces he created on his 30-minute show.
Adding Ross’ calm demeanor to your shelf will set you back $29.99 USD. The action figure is available from a variety of online resellers.
Take a weekly look at a modern-day thing with a nostalgic influence.
