Cancelled Action Figure Cavalcade: Gorillaz

Art Asylum was going to produce a line of figures based on virtual rock band the Gorillaz. As you have likely already guessed by now, the line was cancelled and never released. I think I once read online that it was due to the licensor not approving the line, but that was awhile ago and I may be wrong. Somone was able to appease the licensor however as eventually Kid Robot was able to produce their own collection of Gorillaz figures. I think the Kid Robot figures turned out nicer, but I have to hand it to Art Asylum for planning to produce a figure of a zombie gorilla.

The style of Gorillaz is so well defined that those figured look well done and similar to kid robot, but a little softer(?).
