Re: If you were an action figure...

One of me? Who'd want a middle aged Ernie Douglas (of "My Three Sons")?

Honestly, as a kid wearing glasses and parting my hair to one side, I was a dead ringer for that child actor. I even had the same goofy overbite.

Sincerely,

Bill

No, I'm imagining a "sold separately" wardrobe that would take up more space on store shelves than the Barbie collection.

Re: If you were an action figure...

I'd be in some casual shirt, short grey skirt, and flip-flops. Black ones with silver glitter. I'd come with a copy of Pride and Prejudice, a cheeseburger, and my cat Comet. There would also be a Klingon version of me in one of those horrible outfits with a bat'leth, a bottle of prune juice, and Comet as a targ.

Re: If you were an action figure...

I'd be wearing black dungarees (and they be called dungarees on the packaging ), with a green button-down shirt, sleeves rolled up, open in the front with my RJDiogenes.com tee shirt underneath and black sneakers. My accessories would be a cup of hot tea, a can of iced tea and a bottle of Twisted Tea.

No, it doesn't. I've decided that comes standard. Also, the mold will use an actual-size casting of my junk. For an action figure, it would only be slightly small.

The Kommander action figure would come with random accessories left over from other action figures. One might have a guitar, a rocket launcher, and a tube of lipstick, while another would have a harpoon gun, a wrestling champion belt, and a hotdog.

Re: If you were an action figure...

If you'd ever participated in one of the crazy cyber-fights with Santaman, Jim Gamma and yours truely, you'd consider the combination of a lipstick and a rocket launcher a very useful one

The Wardrobe would be part of the 3 items you're allowed. One with an inbuilt black hole that makes infinite space for the contents. Or an automatic shrink/resize beam built into the key.

Well, Holdfast his British. I bet his wardrobe is bigger on the inside.

(Also, I'm kinda bummed nobody commented on my Tenth Doctor outfit. I guess few people get excited about Time Lords' fashion )

If it did, I could have a variety of attachments for my groinal socket. Buzz saw, power drill, hedge trimmer, even an egg whisk.

Re: If you were an action figure...

I'd come with my usual style of clothing. Earth-tone pullover and button-up shirts, a green or black cap, slightly worn blue jeans or dress slacks, brown or grey hiking shoes. I'd come with an interchangeable head you could pop on and off for when you want me to have facial hair.

My trusty beagle would be an articulated accessory with a wagging little tail, I'd have a small button or lever on my back that you could press for "Inappropriate Cooleddie Action Features" and - of course - my action figure would have a collection of its own action figures.

I'd retail for $9.99, but if you're nice and bribe me a little you can get it for $5.99.
