Well it’s about time:

Revolution PAC Saturday unveiled a series of collectible action figures bearing the likeness of presidential candidate Ron Paul. The launch was made in conjunction with the super committee’s webcast of the South Carolina Primary results.

The 12”, talking, limited edition action figures are available in two models – the “Commander-in-Chief” Paul, complete with the U.S. Constitution, and “Super Hero” Paul. All proceeds go toward Revolution PAC’s efforts to secure the Republican nomination for Congressman Paul. Purchase at ronpaulactionfigures.com.

It’ll actually respond to you, too. For example, if you say “Super Hero Paul, there’s a crisis in the Middle East and the people need your help” and pull the string, the action figure will reply “why don’t you just mind your own business and stop with the nation building?”

    It's a good likeness. The suit looks slept in.

  2. backwoodsconsr on January 25th, 2012 6:53 pm

    We don't need to elect Ron Paul president to have somebody who will talk to the world's troublemakers. Jimmy Carter is always ready to volunteer.

  3. backwoodsconsr on January 25th, 2012 6:55 pm

    Ron Paul can't help the way his suits look on him. He's so scrawny they're not hanging on much more than a clotheshanger.

    "The suit looks slept in."

    One of the major problems w/ Ron. He's forever looking like we caught him "in between naps".

    Balancing act for guys that are no longer GQ material. Present yourself like Jim Cramer on CNBC ( like you just got your face off a mirror after doing Executive-sized lines of blow ) or the washed up door to door salesman look RP is sportin'?

    A bobble head might be more appropriate.

  6. Misscheryl on January 25th, 2012 7:11 pm

    by the way – "action" figure hardly applies in this instance.

  7. SignPainterGuy on January 25th, 2012 7:29 pm

    Mmm hmmm, with that silly, nervous laugh !

  8. Misscheryl on January 25th, 2012 7:33 pm

    Paul would be creepy aside from the fact that even I could prolly whoop him.

  9. SignPainterGuy on January 25th, 2012 7:40 pm

    Paul`s suit looks to be fittin` just about true to life.

    As pointed out at Potluck on the similar story, the Paul and Obama dolls would be good only as target practice ! I however prefer to spend my donation dollars on people and programs that give benefit to worthwhile causes; like March of Dimes and the Salvation Army !

  10. SignPainterGuy on January 25th, 2012 7:42 pm

    Prolly ! And your bull dog could destroy his ankles ! ;-)

  11. backwoodsconsr on January 25th, 2012 7:43 pm

    Are you kidding? If a crisis arose during the Paul administration he could be counted on to sent an army of diplomats into action. After taking the time to seek Congressional approval, of course.

  12. SignPainterGuy on January 25th, 2012 7:44 pm

    You`re makin` me think Paul was involved in designing the ROE`s that have taken the pleasure right outta combat !

  13. Truesoldier on January 25th, 2012 7:46 pm

    O/T, but I know some have asked the question as to exactly what Warren Buffet's secretary makes a year. Well it looks like the question has been answered and if you use Obama's definition then she is one of those evil millionaires or billionaires:

    are you calling my dog an ankle biter? LOL

  15. Marshall_Will on January 25th, 2012 7:48 pm

    Truesoldier made mention as to "When are some of these GOP candidates going to start asking questions about____?" ( Insert your own pet peeve here )

    That's the regard RP is most disappointing. According to the OWS-curious, he's easily the most intelligent GOP'er. Well if that's the case, why isn't he dropping the "big picture" posing and start w/ some warm up questions for Obie?

    What circumstance brought about the implementation of Tanning Booth TAX!? Let's start there Mr. pResident? Guys, big pic' when you're talking to the choir, specifics when you're attacking the Marxist in Chief, ok?

  16. backwoodsconsr on January 25th, 2012 7:48 pm

    The military under Ron Paul would be armed with the Constitution. That works pretty well on civilized people but I don't think it would do much to take the fight out of barbarians.

  17. Misscheryl on January 25th, 2012 7:54 pm

    That was racist! /sarc

  18. SignPainterGuy on January 25th, 2012 7:56 pm

    I`m sayin`, he looks like he recognizes a good snack when he sees one ! :-) In this case, it just happens to be a pair of boney ankles !

  19. SignPainterGuy on January 25th, 2012 7:59 pm

    Good start ! Why are you, Mr pRes., focusing on areas that need no giverment aid ? And instead avoiding areas that drastically need help ?

  20. Marshall_Will on January 25th, 2012 8:10 pm

    Right, biz's folding left & right, we survivors are on life support but… your wife is running around mandating new school lunch menus?

    If I were running, my webpage wouldn't look radically diff. than MM's. HERE is what you have -done- Mr. pResident. THESE are the direct consequences to everyone from Brian Terry and his family to the poor taxpayers on the hook for Soilyndra!

    We know you'd like to pretend they didn't 'happen' but..? Why get mirred in attacking each other when there's endless material w/ P'BO?

  21. SignPainterGuy on January 25th, 2012 8:15 pm

    ENDLESS material on PeeBO !

    A caller to one of the nat`l talk guys asked, "What are you gonna do when BO is gone ?; you`ll have nuthin` to talk about !"

  22. Marshall_Will on January 25th, 2012 8:25 pm

    TS,

    No qualms w/ someone using an anon/fictitious person for the sake of illustration in, a bar room conversation. It serves to move things along swiftly enough to keep your int. without getting bogged down.

    How 'liberally' it's used, well I guess that depends on who's BUYING!? O'Drama has leaned on this analogy for years now. Without bothering to quantify 'who' she is and how 'much' she makes?

    They need to either flesh out what Forbes couldn't or stop using her as a talking point altogether. As the article points out, even at $200k ( there's plenty of gals that'd be happy to take her place )

  23. Pasadena Phil on January 25th, 2012 8:31 pm

    All of the other candidates didn't qualify to be issued their own action figures. Unfortunately, there is no market for "idle bystander who talks alot" figures they ARE qualified for.

  24. backwoodsconsr on January 25th, 2012 8:42 pm

    Rush Limbaugh survived the demise of the Clinton administration. As long as there's politicking going on, there'll be stuff to talk about.

  25. SignPainterGuy on January 25th, 2012 8:43 pm

    Slap the "cult-following" label on it and it makes sense !

  26. Marshall_Will on January 25th, 2012 8:55 pm

    Well… NO! It's bank to have royalties when you have an action fig. out but when compared to:

    Mista' Gutsy Call, Sir Golfsalot, Got Swagga'? and Solyndra Man, yeah, it's tough! What kind of doll do non-moderate Islamic mooslim children have tucked under the bedsheets? Take your pick.

    Osama, Obama, John Walker Lindh..?

  27. Truesoldier on January 25th, 2012 8:58 pm

    No kidding. I have no qualms (as I am sure you feel the same way) about her earning the money. If Warren Buffett believe she is worth the money then by all means pay it to her.

    It just drives me crazy that Obama keeps acting like people who have earned their riches are evil, but the people who donated to the DNC then got a massive taxpayer subsidy (I refuse to call it a loan as a loan is something one intends to pay back) for a green company that was destined to go belly up using the business models that were used.

  28. Marshall_Will on January 25th, 2012 9:18 pm

    TS,

    This is the corner O'Blama has painted himself into. He's so invested in Warren ( and vice versa ) and it's so late in the game, they've no CHOICE but to keep hammering the same outdated talking points.

    Right, the 11.2 million people that were Left Behind in the downturn give a rip about some $200-$500k personal assistant in Topeka, or Omaha or wherever when THEIR Unemployment ran out six mos. ago!

  29. SignPainterGuy on January 25th, 2012 9:18 pm

    And they better keep them "well hidden" if they don`t want their noses, ears and fingers "detached" if they`re caught with them !

  30. Granny55 on January 25th, 2012 10:13 pm

    As far as foreign policy – Ron Paul is a complete failure but after reading this article it seems Newt's apple doesn't fall far from the Ron Paul tree.

  31. Truesoldier on January 25th, 2012 10:13 pm

    Yep. Personally I hope that Obama continues down this road as it will continue to provide so much ammunition to whomever the nominee ends up being.

    BTW did anyone else see over on Drudge the report about Gov. Brewer and Obama having an argument on the tarmac? It appears that Obama was upset about how he was portrayed in her book. Of all the things in the country go on that is what has this guy upset and people wonder why we call him a narcicist.

  32. Truesoldier on January 25th, 2012 10:21 pm

    I just saw that the more they dig into the secretaries background the more they are finding out that she is not the downtrodden poor secretary Obama has tried to portray her as.

    It is being reported that her and her husband just closed on a second home in AZ (their first home is in Omaha).

    Great news for her and her family as AZ is a great place to get away from all the snow that Omaha has to offer. Not so great news for Obama. How much you want to bet the MSM is quickly going to loose interest in the secretary.

  33. backwoodsconsr on January 25th, 2012 10:28 pm

    It sounds like Newt was accusing Reagan of not being tough enough on the Soviets. Ron Paul would complain about Reagan's policies not being wimpy enough.
    I wonder if Ron Paul has ever even heard of Neville Chamberlain.

  34. SignPainterGuy on January 25th, 2012 11:14 pm

    Yeah, according to the story, they sorta got in each other`s faces, she pointed her finger at him, they talked over each other and Zero walked away in the middle of her sentence !

    He no doubt feels "he" was the adult in the conversation !

  35. A.Men on January 26th, 2012 10:41 am

    Looks nothing like Ron Paul. Looks too human and alive!

  36. backwoodsconsr on January 26th, 2012 11:33 am

    It probably understands foreign policy better than he does too.

  37. Obama bin Biden on January 30th, 2012 1:17 pm

    Tin foil hat sold separately.

  38. SignPainterGuy on January 30th, 2012 5:12 pm

    No doubt, including the tin foil hat with the doll would have hurt sales among the true believers.
