Milo of Descendents and GG Allin figures announced

Aggronautix have announced plans to immortalize Milo Aukerman of Descendents and GG Allin with a new pair of polyresin figurines. Displayed in a a black and blue tri-windowed box, Milo is portrayed in action and comes complete with his trademark nerd glasses and stage stance.

GG Allin is being released as a “Extra Filthy Bloody” Edition with his image circa 1991 with added crud, blood, and cuts. The figure, limited to 500 numbered units, stands at 7 inches tall and is made of a lightweight polyresin. Milo is the fourth punk personality to be polyresinated by Aggronautix. In May of 2009, the company launched with a highly popular GG Allin “1991” figure, which was limited to 2000 numbered units. That figure has since sold out, making way for the ultra-limited “Extra Filthy Bloody” Edition.

Check out some pictures on the toy company’s website.

The Final Countdown

The good news is that yesterday’s $2.50 sale saved the company. The bad news for our bean counters is that, as a “thank you” from all of us on the TF team, we’re rolling back prices like it’s Thursday. That’s right — Team Fortress 2 is BACK ON SALE at its original, company-busting Thursday Super Sale of the Century price of just $2.49! But only until 1:00pm PDT! And this is the last time we’re doing this! There will be no more sales!

“Gee,” you may be thinking, “the first time it was on sale, I bought a copy for myself. Then, when it went on sale a second time, I bought some more copies to give to my friends and family. Sooo… Ummm… I guess I don’t know what to do.”

Well, sure, you bought a copy for yourself. You bought copies for your friends. But ask yourself this: Have I bought enough copies… for my enemies?

Sounds crazy, right? You know what else sounded crazy? Using only words to recreate the feeling of when something unexpected happens in a movie trailer and all of a sudden there’s a loud record scratch. People told us that would never work, but – as you probably remember from the previous paragraph – it totally did work. You know what sounded even crazier than that? Selling the greatest team-based multiplayer shooter ever made for two dollars and forty nine cents. And that turned out pretty well, too.

Important Financial Report

Remember yesterday when Team Fortress 2 was on sale for the ridiculous, mathematically-basically-zero price of $2.49? According to the bean counters, we’re now broke. Man, what were we thinking? Anyway, in a desperate attempt to move some units, make up the shortfall, and save the company, TEAM FORTRESS 2 IS ON SALE FOR $2.50 UNTIL 7PM PDT! Pennies from Heaven!

“Gee,” you may be thinking, “I already bought a copy.”

Well, sure, but did you buy extra copies to give away as holiday gifts? Because – thanks to Steam’s gifting system – you totally can.

Here’s the best part: You can buy a bunch of copies now for $2.50, then when your grandparents unwrap them on Christmas morning, TF2 will be selling for $19.99 again. They’ll think you spent almost 700% more than you actually did! It’s like you’re stealing from us and lying to your grandparents! It’s the perfect crime!

And because we’re so crazy, for all we know, by the time December rolls around, we might be selling Team Fortress 2 for six hundred bucks. Or more! Who knows? OH MY GOD GO BUY SOME PRESENTS!
