The Colonel



This is our collection of Colonel Sanders action figures. I bought these on Ebay years ago, they come from Asian countries where the Colonel is quite popular. In Tokyo there are life size statues of the Colonel in front of every KFC, and they periodically dress the statues in different costumes. We gave this collection to our son because he started collecting food icons when he was five years old. His collection is pretty adorable with Mr. Peanut, Charlie The Tuna, Captain Crunch, Sugar Bear, and Tony The Tiger to name just a few!

Ha! I also love food icons and have a bobble head collection of: the Lucky Charms leprechaun, the Trix rabbit, etc.

I have always secretly pined for a life sized Bob's Burger Boy but alas, they are not in Canada and would be difficult to bring home on a plane.
