When we were asked what we wanted for christmas this year the answer was simple - a 3 3/4" Icon action hero. Up top he should be all Icon but his bottom half should be yoinked straight from Cobra Commander. And presto - wish fulfilled. Of course the gigantic helmet looks as if it was painted by a blind monkey but we will overlook that. Anyways - Merry Christmas to you and yours from the staff at Icon.

When it comes time to redecorate the Icon Garage we're going to do it all Nagel. We'll be sure to take off our 8-ball jacket first so we don't get any paint on it.
Getting all Benatar...
Ah, the fond memories of the Stryper tour
This one is gonna get painted onto the hood of our Slant Nose Porsche

The airborne particulates rained down in an ashen flurry. The charred refuse of humanity - of civility. He always knew it would end like this. The twisted metal shrines perched atop the ruptured asphalt remnants of society. A battlefield of remote SUV's and tweaking truckers. This is why he had spent his life preparing. The countless hours of urban close-quarters riding practice. The years of mental solitude and ritual bike crafting. And of course the hording of gear. Specifically the helmet. A laminated carbon shell specifically equipped for the years of hardship to come. It's shape dictated by the jagged landscape. A peripherally extended eyeport to increase his situational awareness. Venting and nex-gen liners that allowed him to ride for extended hours should the situation demand it. And of course the composite structure of energy management carbon and foam should it all go wrong. He had paid the price, now he would reap the rewards.
Tony Carbajal of Team No Limit snapped a couple quick photos of a Washington DC police officer fighting crime checking out the Icon GSXR collection. Needless to say, the officer was amused by Tony's photography skills and tasered him in appreciation.
