Just thought I would let everybody know that I have found the Freddie Action Figure in store. NOT ONLINE

So for anybody in north america...or at least Canada, chck your local Spencers gifts Store.

Its running for 50 bucks.

I havnt bought mine yet, I haver a discount card but didnt have it with me yesterday, so I am going back to buy it today.

They only had two, and I am in a decent sized city, so i had one put on hold

Just thought you would all like to know

I went and bought it yesterday.

overal it is good, but I am a little dissapointed with it.

one, VERY little posability, I was hoping to be able to put him into the same pose as the statue. But his head doesnt move enough, and his mic holding arm doesnt move right

there is a big grey scuff mark on the back of his left arm (on mine) (i was thinking of taking it back and getting the other one)
that and they cut a hole in the back of the backing board to test the sound or somthing.

and the people who made it obviosuly know nothing about queen/freddie

look at the size of his mic stand?

it looks right only its the length of a full mic pole without a base.

The audio is good though.

overall it looks great and thats whats important

Mine was just shipped out to me yesterday! It sure took long enough...

By the way, the guy who sculpted it is indeed a Queen fan himeslf. He's pretty cool too. ;)

Actually, here's his myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/jean_st_jean


By the way, how does the medley work? I mean, I know how it WORKS, but, how do the songs go together?

I see there is quite a variety of pricings on eBay for the Freddie doll. Shipping seems to average $12.00 USD in same country.


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.
