Idle Hands vs. The Uncommon Cold

I know we've all been there. Had that one cold where your head feels completely congested and you can barely breathe. You blow your nose and are in wonderment that so much stuff can come out. This was the central plot to an episode of The Tick ("The Tick vs. The Uncommon Cold"), where he was so sick that he ended up blowing out a full-bodied mucus incarnation of himself. Now fans of The Tick can get their hands on him in all his mucus glory, courtesy of Idle Hands.

Idle Hands has teamed up with Shocker Toys to create the limited edition Series 2 Tick action figure (limited to 1,000 pieces) that will also feature card art. The figure is set to hit the Shocker Toys web store this Friday (May 28) at 10 AM EST.

Full press release after the jump.
