HeroBuilders.com's Huntin' Dick Cheney
If you read my review of Trial Attire Saddam Hussein, you know that I don't typically dabble in political statements unless they're funny. Dick Cheney shooting a man, nay his friend, in the face is tragic, but also hilarious. It just fits his existing cold, uncaring, robotic image in the media.
I will attempt to shed a more humanistic light on Vice President Cheney through carefully thought out photographs of his action figure. As of right now, his simple t-shirt says it all. You don't know Dick You will see him wrestling with his past (or future?); you will see him at his strongest, mentally; and at his most vunerable. We will see where he draws his strength, and we will even catch a glimpse at his tender side. He is a human after all, and all it takes is a fully articulated hunk of plastic to let us see that.
The figure itself has some nice articulation. Double jointed elbows, wrist, separate index finger. He also stands on his own fairly well. A little bonus are the spikes that come out of his shoes. You've never experienced an ass kicking until you've come incontact with a 65 year old man with retractable spikes in his shoes. I would have liked to have gotten a hunting cap or orange vest, but if it would take too long for the new clothes to be produced, and hence put the figure's release past the expiration date of this joke, then I'm fine with what I got.
HeroBuilders.com also does custom action figures of any picture you send in. Talk about a sweet retirement gift for someone. Check out their site to see what they all offer. Also check out their Hotbox fully articulated female action figures. They were recently featured in the movie Grandma's Boy, and actually look pretty hot.
Come along with us now as we delve into the psyche of the man we call Veep.
