John Lennon "action" figure

I don't really have a problem with this, do you? I mean, everything is for sale these days. Everything is commercialized. Even The Beatles (what was left of them) cashed in. Paul McCartney has sold out. Pete Townshend, for God's sake, once the conscience of rock and roll, sold out. U2 sold out (sort of). The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan sold out if you hold them up to the lofty standards they and their contemporaries preached in the mid to late 1960s. Does it matter, anymore? I do hate that Yoko will make money off of them, though. And as far as it being an "action" figure, it looks more like a Todd McFarlane-like figure than a G.I. Joe, or something. All you need is dough!
