I been in Mexico alot lately, in Gudalajara, Monterrey, Veracruz and Im always going straight to the toy ile in Wal Mart. And guess what! all they have is those ugly looking, who would buy,robot-looking! sigma six garbage!!! Oh but they got tons of Star Wars!!!! Who Cares! No queremos Estar Guars! Queremos YIAYO compadre!!!!!:mad:
hey! your chocolate is in my peanut butter
(great commercial good candy)
but Hey! your reality is in my fantasy just tastes bad.
keep the real figures out of it.
Now Indiana Jones could make a ton of reality figures that would collect dust, from Hitler to Teddy Roosevelt to any other historical character from the Young Indy Chronicles, but only because they were part of that storyline.
but like I said they would collect dust, there is a reason these kind of figures including the librarian figure and einstein figure just arent generating all that much hoopla and excitement.
Are we are getting a Dennis Quaid figure, a Sienna Miller figure? a Channing Tatum figure? nope we are gettin a Hawk and a Baroness and yet another Duke
Do you call your Darth Maul a Ray Park figure? didnt think so.
reality+fantasy= bad taste in the mouth.
Keep in mind, that a new suit body could also mean that we coudl get a Hector Ramirez action figure in addition to Tomax and Xamot.
I think a President Obama G.I. Joe would be the Fridge of this line, both cashing in on a very popular figure. And speaking of cashing in, an Obama G.I. Joe would at least be a lot more dignified than the lame collector's plates and coins that are being sold on TV.
Hmmmm, an Obama GI JOE fig would be kinda cool, and seeing as he's now the Commander-in-Chief of the American force, there would be some degree of legitimacy behind the figure. Personally, I think it would be too much of a blatant cash-grab by Hasbro and the market is already saturated with Obama merchandise. I think Marvel Comics had the right idea with their latest Siderman issue, though. Obama was a HUGE comic book geek and it's cool to see that fact acknowledged by a publisher.
