On January 14, 1973, the first-ever concert live via satellite beamed its way to 40 countries and 1.5 billion people!

With his Elvis: Aloha from Hawaii concert, Elvis Presley made music history yet again. The concert was a worldwide smash and features the King of Rock 'n' Roll at his very best.

McFarlane Toys showcases Elvis Presley in one of his most famous on-stage performances, wearing one of his most renowned jumpsuits -- The American Eagle. Celebrate music's greatest icon in a performance that has never been equaled -- or forgotten.

Due for release AUGUST 2008.

This is nice. Dont worry Boogie sometimes Mcfarlane issues Variants that are a little different from the regular ones, so the inside of the cape might be blue on those.

These 'action figures' are some of the few Elvis things I enjoy collecting. Thanks for posting.

I agree with you both. I wish these "journalists" would do the proper research before stating erroneous facts.

A word of warning.......be very careful where you keep this at night.....a friend of mine bought one recently and now her barbies are pregnant.......that ol` Tigerman seems to have a way with the ladies!

Why would you assume a journalist provided the information for the blurb posted previously from McFarlane?

It is a publicity blurb from epgold and elvisexpress ... presumably written by McFarlane's PR people ... who, also presumably, got the "1.5 billion" thing from EPE, or another erroneous source.

What are you on about? Why would you figure I could answer that ... I do not ask questions to which I already know the answer. Either speak clearly and directly, or don't bother speaking at all.

You make a lot of statements you have no answer for.
Research is a must . I thought you might know that .;)
