George Kennedy goes on a rampage

George Kennedy goes on a rampage

I’m not sure why but Larami Toys really thought that kids would dig George Kennedy and his one and a half season series “The Blue Knight”, which was the story of a veteran beat cop. They marketed all kinds of slightly ridiculous “actiony” items around the series including motorcyles with figures (which I assume means George did get an action figure) but my personal favourite is this pistol range.

The three “hardened criminals” shown must be Larami executives because none of them are particularly threatening in the least. This kind of looks like George Kennedy is exacting revenge on his accountant, his manager and his dad.

    I, for one, would pay good money for a Frank Drebin firing range 😛 🙂

    The guy in the middle looks like a decrepit version of Kevin Spacey.
