Irvine, CA (PRWEB) November 17, 2004
The PresidentÂs surprise 2003 Thanksgiving Day visit to the U.S. troops in Iraq has inspired Talking Presidents to create a new action figure, Turkey Dinner Bush.
The secret Thanksgiving trip was the first visit by an American President to Iraq. The trip was said to have boosted the morale of troops serving in Iraq, as well as to have inspired patriotism among many Americans at home. Regardless of how the visit was viewed politically, it has become a piece of our nationÂs history. It also inspired John Warnock of Talking Presidents to create a new President Bush action figure.
ÂIt was such a cool, historic moment, I immediately wanted to make a doll to celebrate it,Â said Warnock. ÂAs I watched him carrying the turkey tray on television, I started picturing him in a display box.Â
Turkey Dinner Bush is dressed in a replica of the Army Jacket, blue shirt and black pants he wore while visiting the troops, and comes complete with a turkey dinner tray similar to the one he carried last Thanksgiving Day. Unlike the companyÂs other dolls, Turkey Dinner Bush does not talk. This limited edition action figure is strictly limited to production of 5000 dolls.
Talking Presidents is a designer of political action figures, including Presidents Bush, Clinton, and Reagan, and of pundits including Ann Coulter.
