Joe Wilson Gets His Own Action Figure

Posted: Updated:

OH, SWEET. Look who got an action figure! South Carolina Representative Joe Wilson, that's who! Thanks to the good people at, if you are looking to part with a cool $39.95 on a needless recession-era purchase, you can now be the proud owner of a mini-fig that ably chronicles that time in American History where a guy yelled at the President during a speech to a joint session of Congress.

While the figure is so cheaply made that it sort of looks like a repurposed Howard Dean-on-ecstacy action figure, the Joe Wilson mini-fig is programmed to utter "You Lie!" You can listen to it here. Then, after fifteen minutes of shouting "You Lie!" the Joe Wilson action figure starts whining like a milquetoast and starts asking your other action figures to fight his battles for him.

HeroBuilders apparently has a Michelle Bachmann action figure on the way, so, there's something for you to look forward to, I guess.
