Swear Bears (Drastic Plastic)



Swear Bears
Drastic Plastic
2004

It's an obvious attempt to cash in on Care Bears by being cliche, but if it's your thing to be rebellious because being rebellious is cool (yes, we're rolling our eyes as we write this) then Swear Bears could be your thing.

Drastic Plastic didn't impact collectors much in the world of action figures before going out of business. However, when this is the best you can come up with, it's no real surprise.

The whole premise of these figures was that when you flipped their heads around, they would have either a different face, or some random "rebellious" statement on the back of their heads. Meh...We suppose that somewhere out there that there's a rebellious teen shouting, "<insert expletive here> yeah!" at these things. If that's your thing, then it's fine. Whatever suits you in terms of your collectibles.

There were eight bears in total produced, each with a different theme, but all with some form of middle finger. Truth be told, without the hand gestures, and a name change, these things would have been pretty neat. They're not bad "figures". They're just cliche. Like we said, rebellious for the sake of being rebellious.

If these are something you want to track down, rest assured you can do so relatively cheap. Brand new in the box, they sell for as little as $3.00 each - Sometimes even less. They're all also relatively readily available on secondary markets. None seem any more harder to find than any other one in the lineup.
