Introducing the Camping Man

There's a new toy in town.

With such positive feedback about the Corey in Madison’s action figure idea, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to develop a 2D prototype of Aaron "The Camping Man" action figure!

As a genuine work-in-progress (that I’m pretty proud of), I would describe the Camping Man as rugged, resourceful and friendly – kind of a GI Joe meets Lambeau. "From the backyard to the North woods, it’s the perfect camping complement for any young Packer fan or any Packer fan simply young at heart," one could say.

You’ll notice he is donned in green and gold attire, and I would assume that any outfit The Camping Man wears would reflect the Packers colors. Underneath that outfit and painted on his plastic body is a manly, black, Under Armor one-piece that showcases both toughness and pride (maybe there will be a limited-edition Green Bay Packers American Gladiators-style suit someday). Possible accessories include the fire, plate ‘o burgers, wieners on a stick, fishing hat and machete for blazing trails through tall grass an’ such.

As far as size goes, I’m thinking the Camping Man would be 12 inches tall. That’s not too small as to get overlooked and not too big that it would fall into doll status. And since this is a camping-specific action figure, either he simply glows in the dark or if you say, “Guide me Camping Man!”, his eyes become two miniature flashlights. Yes!

I honestly believe AK would be proud of this one.
