Viral “gurning rave guy” recreated as action figure

The viral “gurning rave guy” has been recreated as an action figure.

Shaun Jackson became an unlikely meme back in 2014 after a video, titled 'Bounce by the Ounce', featured him dancing in a club as part of a promo for Preston nightspot Rumes, and duly lit up the internet.

Joe Shark from Sandwich Toys has now created 'The Gurner Raver Raindance Edition' action figure in collaboration with Jackson, according to LADBible.

The toy will debut at the Raindance and Just-In Time Presents The Winter Series event in Norwich on 2nd December, where Jackson is said to be attending as well as signing merchandise. You can pick up your own action figure from the Sandwich Toys Facebook page here – they're priced at £40.

Last year, the Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac became the latest artists to be turned into vinyl Funko action figures. As part of the company's 'Gold Line' pack of premier figures, the series sees Biggie and Tupac rendered in their respective iconic clothing. These figures follow previous rap Funkos including Post Malone and Run-DMC.
