Ok heres the deal I wanna build a scale RC plane and I want Jerry as my pilot :-) The closest thing I can find is the Jerry Garcia Super Stage Deluxe Action Figure/Grateful Dead/2001 McFarlane Toys on ebay
and Im wondering if any of you guys have one? cause id like to know if the guitar can be removed? and if the legs and arms bend and stuff so I can set him right in the cockpit? :P

I'm logging this one in as the most esoteric question posted and answered on the board...I knew it before but am only more certain now...there is no question concerning Dead minutiae than this board can't answer.

I love this forum and I'm so glad to have found it. Such a great diversion from everyday crap to talk and read about all things GD. Good luck with the Jeraplane. Dare I say, please post a pic?

Maybe now would be a good time to lay claim to the term Jeraplane or, perhaps change my user name to Jeraplane Blues. Lol. Have fun with your aircraft- looks pretty sweet. :lol:
