If I had the chance and this helmet, I would wear it at my job.

Funko produces a Surf Dude Wacky Wobbler:



It looks to be a straight rip of the Hawk Silly Surfers:

I keep marveling at how well the sculpts of the Marx Weird-Ohs conform to the Hawk Weird-Ohs box art drawn by Bill Campbell:









Meanwhile the sculpts for the Hawk Weird-Ohs were sadly not really good reproductions of the box illustrations:

Here's a book by Mark Cantrell that's a must for Hawk Weird-Oh fans:



A Weird-Oh World: The Art of Bill Campbell is devoted to the artwork of the designer and inventor of the Weird-Ohs, artist Bill Campbell who was responsible for most of Hawk's box art from the mid 1950's to 1965.

And here's a cool promo clip for the book:

Round2 issued a series of Hawk Weird-Ohs on skateboards figures in 2008:







Magnetism was employed to make the figures stand on the skateboards.

Overall they're very cool and well worth collecting! Despite several inquiries though, I've been unable to determine why/how the numbering of this series extends into the dozens. After all, Hawk originally issued only twelve Weird-Oh kits, five Silly Surfer kits and four Frantic kits.

No they are not. What Taco Bell gave away in 2010 with Kid's Meals was four different Weird-Ohs skateboards each of which came with twelve different Weird-Ohs stickers:



No figures though. Still, I'm getting hungry for tacos!

Tacos with Weird-Oh skateboards is a tough combination to beat. You'd have to go to something like the Topps Monster Tatoos with bubble gum to even get close:
