Remember Tom DeLonge‘s character from Blink-182‘s “First Date” video? He’s back, in toy form!

DeLonge’s To the Stars company is now selling a 10-inch tall, talking plush doll version of everyone’s favorite mustachioed meme-inspiration, whose name is Boomer.

The toy comes with “detachable beer and skate accessories.” Its description also promises you can “squeeze his beer belly for a variety of dumb audio clips that could only come from the premiere idiot savant.”

Pre-orders are open now until March 18 via TotheStars.media.

Meanwhile, DeLonge has been working on a new Angels & Airwaves video, which he recently declared to be the group’s “best yet.”

(Video contains uncensored profanity.)
