Hard to find, but still out there !

I stumbled across this at a local store today !

The Infamous " Black Confederate Figure"

I remember Kevin Levin doing a Hatchet Job on this item.
Click here or HERE to see it.
And not long after The Museum of The Confederacy as well as Treadegar pulled it off the shelves.

But just like the Pesky Black Confederates' who served during the war,
They Keep popping up !

Have A DIXIE DAY Y'all!

Once upon a time !

I do a lot of posting on Face Book.

One thing is certain, 
 Ya Never Know Which Post are Gonna Catch Fire --

I made a post Today and got a lot of folks liking it --




And that was it !

No need to mention the fact that the P.C. crowd would go nuts
 if a similar item were to be offered today !

And that's kinda sad !

HASBRO issued the item in 2000,
A 12" figure.
Johnny is very detailed and has a large number of nicely detailed parts.
The uniform is the shell jacket in Butternut, blue pants, socks, boots, shirt, suspenders and forage cap.
Johnny has a a British Enfield rifled musket. He also has a union equipment belt with the US up side down, bayonet with scabbard (the bayonet fits on the Enfield), canteen,cartridge box, and haversack.  
Johnny also has a Battle flag.

A nicely done historical piece, the upside down buckle shows
 that a bit of research was done in his manufacturing.

As I said,
It's a shame the P.C. crowd / snowflakes, would have such a huge problem with
something that has Historical Accuracy.


I don't usually post comments from Corey Meyer, but in the spirit of Christmas --
I'll post this one ----

"C'mon David, show us the Barbie section of your doll collection." 

Sorry Corey, no Barbies, the closest thing I have is  ---

But if I had a Barbie it would be this one --

N.A.S.C.A.R. Barbie.

Remember Corey, Santa is watching you --

Merry Christmas !

It's back to the Phantom Zone -- Say Hello to Gen. Zod !
