A Political Action Committee in support of Ron Paul, Revolution Pac, has released a piece of campaign memorabilia that puts the Presidential candidate in good company; he is now in the same league as Superman and G.I. Joe.

Following the South Carolina primary, the PAC unveiled a series of collectible action figures bearing the Paul’s likeness. The launch was made in conjunction with the super committee’s webcast of the primary results.

The talking action figure is 12 inches tall and comes in two models: “Commander in Chief” Paul and “Superhero” Paul. Commander in Chief Paul is dressed in a suit and wields a copy of the Constitution as if it were a weapon that he will use against any violation of the principles of the Founders.

“Barack Obama certainly doesn’t have a corner on the action figure market,” said Revolution PAC chair Gary Franchi. “Ron Paul proved he could go head to head with Obama in the Jones Soda bottle ballots during the 2008 campaign. I’m quite confident that he’ll be competitive in the collectible toy demographic as well.”

The PAC says that all of the proceeds from the action figures — which retail at $94.95 each — will be used to support Paul’s Presidential campaign. Though the price is a little steep, the PAC says that the funds go to a good cause, and the action figures are sure to become collector’s items.

“Discerning consumers recognize a rare and valuable offering when they see it. Plus, they know that  — unlike Barack Obama — this is the only way that Ron Paul can be bought,” Franchi said.

The action figure’s phrases are familiar Paulisms:

  • “I am a champion of the Constitution.”
  • “Ideas spread, they can’t stop them.”
  • “An idea whose time has come cannot be stopped by any army or any government.”
