Cult-Ass has announced the release of an all-new action figurine, the 'Cavan Man' doll, which is to become available in the run up to the All-Ireland Fleadh.
The doll is based on the unmistakeable Cavan native and is released to celebrate the recent 3 successful All-Ireland Fleadhs that took place in the county town in 2011, 2012 and 2013. The 'Cavan Man' action doll is the first of its kind and promises to be a huge seller.
Dressed in the traditional Cavan man garb of baggy shorts, runners, a Cavan GAA jersey and Cavan cap, the doll is meant to represent the modern Cavan man which can be seen at GAA matches, Fleadhanna and other culchie-style events.
The creator, Thaddeus O'Luanaigh explains: "For years there have various action figurines like GI Joe and the like but there has never been one that young Cavan boys coul relate to. Do ye ever see a Cavan man going out on adventures and helping people in need? No!"
"This doll is the most accurate representation of the modern Cavan man. To reflect this the doll comes equipped with shite-covered welly boots, the bodhrán and stick and of course the 6-pack of Dutch Gold."
The figurine also comes with a talk function, allowing the user to experience the traditional Cavan man accent and conversation including phrases like: "Jaysus I was so locked last night I shifted me own sister!" and "You're in Ceeavan now so ye are!".
Along with the doll, Cult-Ass are releasing a range of accessories including the 'Cavan Man Ghost Estate Country House' and the traditional mode of transport, the 'Cavan Man Heap O' Shite'. The doll is expected to be released in time for this year's All-Ireland Fleadh in Sligo and will be available from Toys R' Us and Toymaster.
