Trivia

  • To make Tranz 2-D's eyes glow, you have to remove 2-D's hair and switch the "on/off" switch.
  • Song Machine 2-D is the only figure from Song Machine Set from episode one, Momentary Bliss and not Désolé.
  • On the back of the Gorillaz Geep, the license plate has "Noodle" on it.
  • Of all the Superplastic figures, Song Machine Russel is the most expensive. Possibly due to the fact that it is the first Superplastic figure with a full drum set.
  • Around early-mid 2021, the figures were advertised through the Google Ads by the Superplastic website. It is the first time Gorillaz figures were advertised this way.
