This has been dragging on for a while. It stemmed from a 2001 incident at a show in Detroit, USA. Manson was accused of assaulting Keasler by placing his legs around his neck from behind and pressing his crotch area on his head whilst wearing only a thong and stockings. I think it's called 'teabagging'. Certain fans would love to have this done to them. The charges resulted, in 2002, in a criminal case where the judge said Manson had to pay over $4000 (over £2000) in fines and costs for 'disorderly conduct'. The guard then brought the civil case.18 February 2004
Manson ToysTwo designs of Manson wind up toy for sale online. Described as being 'Super-Deformed-style', the artist is Tatsuhiro Fujiwara.
One is styled upon Manson's look in the 'Fight Song' video. The other is from the 'mObscene' video.

I like the Fight Song one the best but they're both cute. They've been advertised on ebay as well now. Imported from Japan, they're 18.99 US dollars and 16.99 UK pounds. Maybe not available until (northern hemisphere) summer though. Marilyn Manson - wind him up and watch him go!10 February

There was also one of a skinned lamb's head but I didn't save it. A skinned lamb's head is apparently a mafia symbol of death, so what do we make of that then?10 January 2004
