G.I. Joe is a Real American Hero. Now you can get some new guys for him to fight against.

I bet that Resin from the dead is just itching to make the Saddam doll.

$300 for two Hitlers.

Such a deal!

Surely that would be infringing his intellectual property rights? I mean, you wouldn't want to start a war.

Comming Soon... Rienhard Heydric, Joseph Goebles, Seoo Dietrich, Heinrich Himmler, and more!

I was actually afraid that I'd be seeing a figure in Muslim garb when I opened the site - it was a relative relief to see someone who's at least dead and a verifiable criminal. But I do wonder who would buy such a thing. Why encourage kids to play at hating and killing anyone?

You might want to encourage them to hate Hitler.

Sheez, what kind of collectors are going to shell out $170 for a Hitler doll? Fans of toys or fans of Nazis? I suspect it's the latter.

BTW, orange swan, you may have been the target market for The Sum of All Fears.

What, no Stalin? Hirohito?

And then there are these lovely action figures.

My last post was redundant, I misread orange swan.

How boring are you if you want to play with Dr. Freud as a child?

The Albino Bowler? Wha- wha- what?

You see? Questions like "who would win out of a fight between the the epitome of evil science and a pigment-deficient bowler" would not be satisfactorily answered were it not for these sites.

We at RFTG by no means endorse Naziism...

...but we're willing to profit from it.

sorry but isnt it tacky to post links that just got posted on memepool?

Don't forget personalized action figures. (as seen on mefi)

I don't read memepool. I will from now on though, it looks good.

Dammitall, I think we all know that GI Joe fights one organization and one organization only. Anything else is just crazy talk.

Now THIS is a REAL American Hero!

Does anyone know where I could get a Henry Kissinger doll?
posted by elwoodwiles at 12:26 PM on November 22, 2002

Get Joe your a hot date. Or a frilly pink dress, if he's so inclined. Or maybe have him sit down with Osama and straighten this whole mess out.

(Um, that should be "your Joe." But you know that.)

More about the Albino Bowler.

This just keeps getting weirder. It....it's a....joke.....right?

You can always strap your Hitler doll into another of their products.
posted by bclark at 1:43 PM on November 22, 2002

I'm not sure, but I ordered two of them (Albino Bowlers).
posted by drobot at 1:43 PM on November 22, 2002

I have no problem believing that a G.I. Joe collector would pay $170 for a customized Hitler, but there are cheaper options. Some of the hottest 1:6 scale toys in recent memory were when Dragon Models released German soldiers for the first time three or four years ago, because it was a long-ignored product segment for a long time (for obvious reasons). I seriously doubt the existence of these dolls can be attributed to an interest in Nazism as political ideology; it's more of a fascination with how cool the German uniforms are.

Wow! Get all these action figures together, and you could make a really expensive but emotionally hollow movie!

But who do we get to direct it?

"Take Goodwin's Law from the Text Box to the Toybox!"

The longer you play with G.I. Joes, the possibility that they will fight Nazi's moves closer to one.

...there are cheaper options...

And then there is the ultra-cheap option: We all know Hitler's brain was preserved after he died. So just buy Hitler's head and put it in a jar. The evil genius can command troops against Joe by telepathy! Buwahahahaha!

(Maybe Spock's Brain could help Joe out.)

Don't be afraid, little resin Hitler. It is just a heat lamp. It has no feelings.
posted by dhartung at 10:14 PM on November 22, 2002

$170 each or $300 for two Hitlers?
You know, in case, you like, burn one $170 Hitler doll in anger, and want another to formulate schemes against GI Joe.
