What do John Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush have in common outside of being a former President of the United States of America? Members of Skull and Bones? The Freemasons? The Buildeburg Group? Take off your tin foil hat you crazy conspiracy nut you… the answer is actually much more fun!
These five men have now been immortalized as 8 inch action figures thanks to the incredibly talented crew at Figures Toy Company! And the even best part is that they are the first series meaning of course that there are more on the way. Speaking with Figures Toy Company owner Anthony Balasco, I’m happy to share with you the upcoming releases that really touch both a patriotic and history nut nerve.
Joining the first five figures next month will be former President Barack Obama and current Commander in Chief, Donald J. Trump. And it gets better and better as the year rolls along. Series 3 will bring us the 70’s all stars of Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. Also in that assortment will be one of the most revered Presidents; Abraham Lincoln. And while I really dig those, Series 4 has me even more stoked as a collector and home-school teacher to my daughter. Let’s now step back to the leaders of the Greatest Generation as we can expect to see 8 inch representations of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower. And to sweeten that assortment even more, our nations first president George Washington will be brought to toy life s well.
I can not tell a lie, these really do tickle me to no end and I am so very pleased that Figures Toy Company has taken this project on for the 21st Century collector. Some of you may recall having seen other such presidential tributes from way back win. A few that stand out to me are:
I’ve always appreciated those but honestly none of them really appealed to me. What can I say? I really like the 8 inch format from Figures toy Company and those others were never complete, all inclusive sets. With these new World’s Greatest Presidents from Figures Toy Company, the hope is high that they will indeed be producing all of our past Presidents, so long as the interest remains. So far signs are good that that will be the case
Why I am so adamant in suggesting these 8 inch American leaders
The quick answer is these are great educational toys for your kids and grandkids. Being a home-school parent and a history buff I think this is such a wonderful and perfect example of how toys can teach. Plus, how cool is it that thanks to Figures Toy Company, you can begin creating your own Hall of Presidents? Just like Disney only better! And to note, this whole thing (this article, the videos, the contest) is not a paid or endorsed project.
