I have my "baby" at last! SQUEE!

So, I tried to get one of those Joey Ramone action figures (as pictured here) a while ago from a local collectibles online shopping service... and they couldn't get one. I was devastated for a while, because I so wanted one, and recently was lucky enough to find a new in the package reasonably priced one on Ebay! And now he's here! *dances with glee*

I won't be taking mine out of the package though, for protective purposes, though I have no intention of ever selling him. He's being displayed with pride of place on my shelf... I found out also that a few years ago an earlier 12" Joey figure was released, but I won't be getting that one. It's super rare and expensive now and looks more like a cartoonist's impression of him. The one I have is smaller but more realistic looking.

I love him! <3333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333

Sounds awesome! :D I don't know who is my favorite Ramone, but they all rock so hard! ^_^ \;;/

Thanks! :) I love all the Ramones too (even though I don't care for Johnny's politics) but I would say Joey would have to be my favorite Ramone. There's just such a sweetness about him... :)

Yeah, I was devastated when I learned that Johnny sold his soul to right wing. Of course, each to their own but right wing politics are the exact opposite of the rock'n'roll lifestyle >:c

I agree completely. I have a lot of respect for Johnny as a musician and band-leader but I do not like right wing politics. :( But Joey was a liberal so I'm glad of that. :)

(and I was very naughty and wrote a slash fic about them!!! I haven't written real person slash in years, I hope Ramones fans will not be offended!!! If you don't like that sort of thing you don't have to read it but I will still post a link on my LJ. *hugs*
