Birdman Action Figure from Fox Searchlight

I'm pretty sure, that me and rest of the kids from the 90's were the real reasons why movies like Batman or Jurassic Park did so well...because we kept buying all the toys. Of course by "we" I mean our parents, favorite aunts, distant cousins...anybody who would listen to our pleas of mercy. Every time a new movie trailer came out, not only was I pumped to see the movie but to own all the action figures and vehicles that came with it. ALL OF THEM. Batman, Ninja Turtles, Robin Hood, Robocop... didn't matter I had to reenact the scenes from the movie or create my own adventures with my favorite characters. And in case you were wondering, Yes, I mean Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves starring Kevin Costner and Allen Rickman. Yes, I had an Allen Rickman figure and it was awesome.

When I saw that Fox Searchlight not only made a Birdman action figure but also a 90's themed commercial around it...well lets just say if I saw this commercial when I was ten I would have begged my parents for this figure. If you've seen Birdman, this commercial actually fits the movie's timeline fairly well!
