Rockstar has finally convinced me to care about GTA III's main protagonist

Oct 14 // Chris Pranger

Things I don't like: Haters, Lobsters, Heatwaves, Comcast, Politics, GTA III. Things I do like: Cats, Kittens, Kitties, Futurama, Beggin' Strips, Badass Action Figures. Apparently my love of action figures has overpowered my dislike of Grand Theft Auto III (which I played all the way through mind you so don't be hatin') as Rockstar announced just a few days ago that to celebrate ten whole years of GTA III they will be releasing a highly detailed figure of Claude, the main protagonist. Wait, his name as Claude? When did I learn that? Doesn't matter, Badass Action Figure.

The 1:6 figure looks simply amazing. I mean just take a look at those side-by-side comparisons between the in-game Claude and the action figure. The in-game version looked like a po-faced jackass with a guido jacket and a stupid hairc-, damn, with my haircut. The figure version looks amazing. I'm gushing, I really am. Swooning even. The face sculpt is astonishing as it just looks so...I don't know, like someone I'd actually want to get to know and care about. Oh crap, like Ben Affleck! When did I start liking Ben Affleck again?!

That amount of detail continues through with the outfit and the accessories, which include a Liberty City State Prison orange jumpsuit, a sniper rifle, an assault rifle, excuse me, two assault rifles, a baseball bat, grenades, a knife, a pistol, and a sub-machine gun. Oh, and 30 points of articulation. And for this the price of US$149.99 is totally reasonable and expected, though if you're a member of Rockstar's Social Club there's a chance you could get it for free in a sweepstakes I'm not going to win. All the info can be found at Rockstar's website for those interested, like myself. Who else wants this really badly?
