    I'm impressed. Over 10" tall, articulated, and the company is only charging $15 for it. Most smaller companies charge that much for a 7" statue. I'd buy this if I saw it anywhere.

    I picked one up a few weeks back. I didn't know they made one, so I was pleasantly surprised. Good articulation and he's weighty, which is cool. Looks good on the shelf.

    Yeah, we started getting them in a little before Christmas...or was it shortly after. Anyways, yeah...I haven't picked up him up yet because I didn't know if he had any articulation or not.

    I keep forgetting to order one of these - Fox sells it online I believe.

    That's pretty damn cool looking though, the guy who did the original designs for it hangs out on an artists board I post on (eatpoo), so it's really cool to see it go from sketches etc to the... well, whatever it is now. Toys etc.

    ie I'm jealous.

    Yeah. I was picking up Spawn animated figs at 2.98 a pop and when I looked to the bottom row, I was like, "no way!" and had to balance it atop my pile of figs in my arms all the way to the register.

    I dont like to use shopping carts in toy stores. It acts as an enabler. :)

    Oh, I love this little guy. All jumping up and down and pointing at stuff.

    Gotta grab him when I see him.

    If you don't have access to a TRU, I'd go the online route, but it's $6 cheaper at the store. If he were $19.99, I might have left him for another day.

    There's supposedly a 3" version too, it comes with a keychain or a string to make him hangoff your rear view mirror.

    I saw him a few days ago. The only reason i didn't get him was the crunched packaging. I now very much regret having that nitpick.

    You could probably remove the football-specific tampos with alcohol.

    If this transformed into a football I'd pay 50-60 bucks for it. That said, a $15 price tag makes me want to pick it up anyway. Come on Hasbro it's time to make another Sportslabel figure.
