Will Connelly, aka Egg Boy, cemented himself as an Australian hero earlier this year when he egged racist politician Fraser Anning over vile comments about the Christchurch mosque shootings. He later proved once more that not all heroes wear capes when he donated almost $100,000 to the victims of the shootings.
Now, he’s being recognised for his heroic acts in the same way that all great heroes are, by being immortalised in the form of his very own action figure.
Australian national hero and “dead set legend” Egg Boy has now been immortalised in the form of his very own action figure, as all heroes are.
Will Connolly has become somewhat of a D-list celebrity following the egging ordeal, where he smashed an egg on Fraser Anning’s head after Anning blamed the Christchurch shootings on Muslim Immigration, literally blaming the victims of the crime.
This all followed with a wave of public praise, and an overflow of memes that lent him his lasting hero status. Now, our national egg-wielding hero has been given his own limited-edition action figure. The Egg Boi action figure is, as the box reads “not a toy” but a “limited edition art project,” with only 100 of these figures made, they’re sure to be rareties in no time.
Egg boy, aka Will Connelly, took to Instagram to show off the brand new action figure, stating: “So this arrived in the post today hahaha what an absolute cracker!! I would never have thought in a gazzilion years that there would be a toy made from my rude head”
“From the unrelenting turmoil of a corrupt theocratic police state emerges a Dead Set Legend, a hero for our times!” the box reads.
“Bearing the weight of the world on their shoulders and fearing not death or persecution, the Champion we now know as Egg Boi rose to embody the hearts and minds of a generation disenfranchised by politicians divorced so far from the Australian population that one might think them Eggs in their own right.
In one selfless moment the mighty Egg Boi took a stand against the tyranny of the pokie republic blazing the trail for the rest to follow.
Thank you Egg Boi.”
