Animatronic Alan
You may not recognise Animatronic Alan (Sir Alan Sugar) if you are outside the UK, but the best explanation is that he is our Donald Trump (he "hosts" our version of The Apprentice). But he has much better hair. This item is a "must have" for every office in the UK, but I can't believe we have to wait until November to re-live:

"You're a lightweight, your're fired!"

Get you orders in now [subbed by Big Kid].

I saw this on Jonathon Ross when Alan Sugar was on it. I thought it was a joke, I had no idea it was going to be manufactured lol
I bet it sells thousands...people will buy anything...remember that singing fish ><

you shoulda said he's the guy behind AMSTRAD (among other things), i'm sure even non-uk people will have heard of that company. they're also the company actually making this thing

i'm also pretty sure that there's to be other versions of this, and that this was the mock up to show what the product could do, i'm sure that's what he said on jonathon ross

Happy Days - I got a post (but not one of the games graeme??? - even searched before sending you the links to check they weren't already on the site!)

I am definately gonna have to put this at the top of my xmas list (will have to think of something clever to get it to say, as you can make a request when ordering......)

Hmmmm, wonder if they will do over celebs, *thinks* anyone have any requests??

i cant believe a cheap plastic massmarketed toy could have such a decent likeness. i thought the idea with these things was usually that they looked nothing like the person in question.

anyway, for a bad pun, click:

Mags, that was a terrible pun, and I didn't even laugh
none the less, the only harm it did was think about how many people are stupid enough to think that is funny.
About the toy. He said bullshi#$ing and my kid is the one on this site

Actually, looking at it..it's pretty damn scary.
It's eyes are like a football fixture list, (one at home, and one away) and it raises it's caterpillar brows constantly.
I think I would be more scared of this than the real Alan Sugar ><
