Barf...this year's Christmas gift? Bush aviator hero action figure at...
http://www.kbtoys.com/genProduct.html/PID/2431939/ctid/...



If Bush gets something like this for being AWOL from the National Guard, what will Clark, Kerry and the other Vietnam Veterans get I wonder?

From the ad copy:

Elite Force Aviator: George W. Bush - U.S. President and Naval Aviator - 12" Action Figure

Pre-order: Available 10/31/03

Price: $39.99
Age: 14+ years

Description

Due to extremely high demand, we will ship your Elite Force Aviator: George W. Bush - U.S. President and Naval Aviator 12" Action Figure based on the date you placed your pre-order.

BBI proudly introduces the latest issue in its Elite Force series of authentic military 12- inch figures, President George W. Bush in naval aviator flight suit. Exacting in detail and fully equipped with authentic gear, this limited-edition action figure is a meticulous 1:6 scale recreation of the Commander-in-Chief's appearance during his historic Aircraft Carrier landing. On May 1, 2003, President Bush landed on the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) in the Pacific Ocean, and officially declared the end to major combat in Iraq. While at the controls of an S-3B Viking aircraft from the "Blue Sea Wolves" of Sea Control Squadron Three Five (VS-35), designated "Navy 1," he overflew the carrier before handing it over to the pilot for landing. Attired in full naval aviator flight equipment, the President then took the salute on the deck of the carrier.

This fully poseable figure features a realistic head sculpt, fully detailed cloth flight suit, helmet with oxygen mask, survival vest, g-pants, parachute harness and much more. The realism and exacting attention to detail demanded by today's 12-inch action figure enthusiast are met and exceeded with this action figure. This incredibly detailed figure is a fitting addition to the collection of those interested in U.S. history, military memorabilia and toy action figures. Actual figure may vary slightly from item shown.

3. Amazing...
"While at the controls of an S-3B Viking aircraft from the "Blue Sea Wolves" of Sea Control Squadron Three Five (VS-35), designated "Navy 1," he overflew the carrier before handing it over to the pilot for landing"

You mean to tell me that idiot was allowed to control an aircraft? Last time I heard there were no "training wheels" on a S-3B Viking"

H--- no would I buy that POS.

20. "He overflew the carrier..."
In other words, in an action eerily similar to steering the car while sitting on your daddy's lap, the real pilot took to the skies with the Idiot Usurper in the right seat, turned on every high-tech navigation device on the plane, told Bush to fly to the little green light on the parked carrier, and Bush missed anyway.

How much you want to bet the real driver of that airplane had a 2x4 beside the seat in case Smirky McCokespoon had to be "removed from the controls"?

4. It's kind of neat, from a pop-culture standpoint...
...exactly the base reaction that Rove wanted from that stunt...

...I look for these to be collectors items one day- I suppose this IS the "W" piece to have if you collect presidential memorobilia...

9. The $16.99 talking one may be a better buy...
Edited on Mon Sep-22-03 01:31 AM by tokenlib
It is also at kbtoys--it also is a bit animated and utters bushisms as well. I confess that I did get one. But now the search is on for nice shiny pins. Voodoo style. }(

It is scary that the "collectors edition" is so popular that they were not promising availability before December.

I have a lot of fireworks left over from the 4th of July. Now that I see this doll, I can think of a million things to do with my leftover ordinance.

15. It's the thing that dipshit had shoved down his pants
to "enhance his manhood" for the cameras. Didn't do a thing to make him NOT look like a moronic AWOL deserting chickenshit, however.

Wanting a DOLL for Christmas. It can't be an action figure, because he never saw any action.

22. 14+?
Sure, my 14-year-old might be interested in one of those if Party Boy took its clothes off and took it around to dance on tables at a food court, or Bam used it to beat up his dad, or they stuck it up Steve-o's butt through his tighty whiteys or something.
