The FINGER OF DOOM

What's up with that right index finger? It looks like it's almost as long as his forearm!

Is that some kind of rubber material that you can poke into the trigger guard? Or has our culture become so gun-phobic that we will produce an A-Team figure that can't look as though it's going to actually fire a weapon?

There's a strong anti-gun

There's a strong anti-gun aspect to our culture, but guns are a big part of many people's idea of our national identity and are here to stay, for better or worse.

As for these toys, I'm sure they're here to stay, too. On the pegs.

No, the finger is not

No, the finger is not rubber, its just plain ol' plastic. It probably is due to Gun-Phobia

At least it looks like

At least it looks like Quinton Jackson rather than Mr. T...Im just a big MMA fan so I like Quinton as the new BA.

This is the worst looking

This is the worst looking mainstream licensed toy that I have seen in... I don't even know how long.

"Have you ever been in line at the bank or the supermarket and some dude is mesmerized by a sign or something in the distance and is unaware of his surroundings?"

This description is perfect.

After I posted this review,

After I posted this review, I saw those ebay links at the bottom and I saw a Mr. T doll from 1984. The doll was WORLDS better. It has gold chains, earrings, clothes made out of actual cloth (Denim and knit shirt, sneakers that had details painted, leatherlike belt and the sculpt is cool, although strange proportioned body, and that is from a doll made 26 years ago and probably still cost less even after adjusting for inflation.
