U2 Figures

I'm posting this in this forum as I think the PLEBA ladies will enjoy it most.

Every so often on eBay, someone sells some home-made U2 figures. By that, I mean little dolls dressed up like Bono, Edge, etc. While the effort is appreciated, basically, they all look like G.I. Joe or Ken dolls with some U2-themed clothing.

However, I came across something VERY interesting. Go here to see a full set of apparently REAL U2 figures in their Elevation Tour mode.

There were two such sets of these toys on eBay. I won one auction. I'll let you know if these figures are worth it when I get them. However, I figured I'd let others know about this auction in case there was any interest. They are the closest I've seen to "real" U2 figures/toys/dolls.

Hope y'all like!

LOL did anyone else notice how everyone is Elevation era except Larry?

In any case, those are impressively like the "real thing" *insert rotating camera here*



Thanks for pointing them out!

This just reminded me of that Will and Grace episode where Jack gets a Cher doll and they have to wait in a restaurant for a table for four to be available because she HAD to have a chair.
