George W. Bush U.S. President & Naval Aviator-
BBi's Dubya is A-OK!
BBI has just introduced 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
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
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
he over flew 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 posable 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. It also beats
the pants off the recent figures from this company's competitors.
This is one of the best aviator figures to be released by anybody to
date. It is perhaps the best celebrity head sculpt any manufacturer
has done in years. The actual sculpt and the facial screening make this
superb figure a dead ringer for The Commander in Chief. They have captured
him in a moment of determined resolve. The expression is one we all
know well and have seen many times as he has risen to the challenges
that have faced the nation and the world over the past years of his
This KB Toys Exclusive comes packaged in a deluxe presentation
box with a
lid that lifts off "shoebox" style. Inside is the figure with
a ton of highly detailed accessories. In addition to those mentioned
above, GWB also comes with additional gloved hands for saluting and
giving the "thumbs up" sign. Other accessories include detailed
zippered flight bag, goldenrod tee-shirt, visor cover, flashlight, radio,
watch and BBi deluxe figure stand. Oh, and not to leave out any detail,
the name tape on his flight suit reads George W. Bush-Commander in Chief.
The overwhelming pre-sales of the figure have caused KBkids.com
various delivery dates based on when they are ordered, but BBi
be stepping up production to meet demand as I received mine more
weeks prior to the expected date. The rumor that the figure is sold
out is not true. You can order one right at the website or your local
KB. The SRP is $39.99 and worth every penny.
