Whether punks like it or not, Misfits have become masters of marketing their merchandise and their latest item sees the band pairing up with Kit Kat. The punk icons are releasing a limited-edition “King Size” version of the Kill Kat vinyl figures they put out this past Halloween.

The new figure dropped Jan. 17 and there’s fittingly only 138 for sale. The new figures are 15-inches tall as opposed to the original ones which were 6-inches. They’re only selling it on their website and it will not be available in stores or anywhere else. Unfortunately, they are not edible but you can pick one up here.

You can see the figure in the post and statement below.
