Action Figure Edward


We here at the League, just like every other Twilight/RP fan, own our very own Action Figure Edward. It's really wonderful to have Edward with you wherever you go, but we've noticed a teeny-tiny oversight on the part of the manufacturers, which was brought to our attention by a friend.





ANONYMOUS FRIEND: Can I ask a very important question? Why doesn't AFE's shirt come off? I mean, just in case he gets hot. Not because I want to look. Really.




I was wondering the same thing about his pants... you know, for summer and stuff.








Why doesn't he bend? I was trying to get him into a sitting position and his torso popped off of his legs. It was all very traumatic for me and the kids. Thankfully Mr. Ginger came to the rescue and reattached him. But he's forced to be in a standing position. Good thing he's a vampire and doesn't mind standing, because otherwise he'd get awfully tired, I think. At least he's got those cool "ming" reading skills.




The only problem I have with action figure Edward is that he's, well.... kinda boring. Not a whole lotta action coming from action figure Edward. And he just stares at my desk all day. And I'm not too crazy about the uneven butt seam in his pants, not too attractive.





Of course now that you said that Spider, I had to grab my Action Figure Edward and check the butt seam. You're totally right. What does that say about me that I never even noticed his butt? More importantly, what does that say about you?







Hmm... It makes you wonder how dedicated NECA is to their craft. Maybe Rob Pattinson has an uneven butt seam. Not in an imperfect kinda way, of course, but in a "this is part of what makes his bubble butt unique" kinda way. Which begs the question: Who got to inspect Rob Pattinson's ass and how do I get that job for all future merchandising updates?

***Action Figure Edward is also popularly and lovingly referred to as "Pocket Edward" thanks to Lauren from Lauren's Bite who came up with the term. She needs to trademark the name. Except then we'd owe her money every time we refer to him as "Pocket Edward". Never mind, that's a terrible idea.

If you wanna see cool stuff you can do with Pocket Edward, visit Lauren's Bite.

Just had to be first so no one would worry. I'm actually at an airport right now....and it's like 5:15am.

So, I still do not have my own PE, since I didn't get one at the one store I saw him at when I had the chance while I was on vacation.
Now here I am in my small town where there are no Pocket Edwards to be found.

However, I am still waiting to get my hands on a PA (Pocket Alice)

BeCullen said...

I love mine. However I have preordered the combo of Edward and Bella where he has sunglasses on. And as m3 had graciously pointed out to me, that PE is "highly posable". yummmmm

Ok, Meadow I'm with you I want to have the butt inspection job. Ya know, I can do that.
So my Lil' Eddie say Catherine last night. Didn't get a pic though they were rushing us through the line so fast.
I was wondering a couple of weeks ago when I got mine, why they don't have clothes to interchange, like with the Ken dolls. I need a baseball uniform, sunglasses, a blue or white form fitting button down shirt. You know, that kind of stuff. Maybe some of those black pants like Rob wears all the time. Just saying.
Oh and at least he can lay down just fine. lol My husband had him laying on my pillow, tucked in the covers one night. Yes, my husband is so cool!

Valerie(momof3crazykids) said...

Yes becullen, I need that one too. But now they are out of stock, waiting for my email saying they are in stock. Need the highly posable, sunglass wearing one. and giving Bella to the 6yo to play with. lol

Ana Cristina said...

I have issues with AFE's not being able to pose, too. Plus mine refuses to stand. He just falls over on his face. Not attractive.

Johanna said...

@BeCullen I am ordering the "Highly Poseable" Edward just for the RayBans. That's another thing NECA dropped the ball on. Where are the accessories people?

@momof3crazykids You have the coolest husband ever. After what he did for you last night with Catherine's notebook, I am wondering, does he have a brother that is single?

@Ana Cristina, Girl I am having the same problem. That's another accessory I would like, a little base that I can stand him on. I mean, he's already got the little holes on the bottom of his shoes.

Emma said...

LMAO at the butt seams!! And do you know why?? Let me explain,yesterday I turned the big 3-0, yes I am now old!! My bestest friend brought me Edward.Yes,30 years old and I get a doll and I LOVE it!! Now I am off to check the butt seam issue and have him read my "ming"....next stop therapy!!

Erin said...

Why doesn't he have hair you can run your fingers through??

I may have to go get me a 'pocket Edward'... :)...

By the way, today is wonderful...I've been watching Twilight all day!! :)

Valarie Lea said...

I just got mine, and one for both daughters. Sooo we have three Mini E's in the house. He went with me last night to the DVD party, even though a) it wasn't much of a party, and b) I already had the DVD by 4:30 yesterday.

Spank Ransom said...

@ Emma - Happy Birthday from The League! Enjoy playing with your AFE and watching the movie... :)

robin(me) said...

Ginger, the same thing happened to my PE. Mr. Robin(me) put his legs back on while mumbling something about letting the dog play with my Edward. NERVE. We had quite the little tizzy about that one but now the 4 of us are happy again. Me, Mr., PE and the dog! And the dressing and undressing is a major problem with me hence the reason why PE lost his legs in the first place!

Emma said...

@Spank Can't enjoy it yet:( It's not released in the UK until April 6th, I know, we are useless over here!! I have however ordered the Borders USA exclusive edition and that is making it's way to me so we are days away from my own mini Twilight/Pattinson midnight party :) Thank you for the birthday wishes, I think you guys are awesome and although I don't comment much I am always on here!!! xx
