Not Jimmy's best look.

I'm a little shocked that he approved it.

Not impressed at all.

Not at all.

Now I not only want him to eat the hat,

but shove the action figure where the sun don't shine.... :angry:

haha sick awww i want one now!!

It's not funny. It made me cry.

You would think someone would gain some wisdom over the years.

This freaking hurts like hell. Strange move from what most consider a gentle man

I'll expand on that one. the part of me that knew about him wanting to cure cancer before I ever heard it cried. It's as if he never found himself again.

The part of me that feels the pain of losing my family to the Nazis wants to take one of those action figures and RAM it.... :angry:

How hard would it have been to say "Lose the hat,and I won't call the lawyers"?

He could have said no, altogether. Obviously it is a look he just may be proud of

True, but just losing the hat would've been a good compromise.

Hoo boy. Not exactly a display of sensitivity in marketing. And just in time for the Tom Cruise film "Valkyrie"!

They made Jimmy look too healthy though - if they were going for realism, where is the heroin pallor and the stick-thin arms?

I was at this show and while it was initially shocking to see him dressed in this attire, he played great and nobody left in protest.

Well, I could be wrong but I always thought the stormtrooper thing was kind of a cool dig/counter and contrast to Nazi idealogy... same with some of Zep's album imagery, and even the band name to some extent. Like turning it (the Nazi history/stronghold) around on its ass, in fact... sort of ridiculing it but not making light of it. With Jimmy commandeering the music, taking the listening audience by storm, the power and strategies of his sonic attack, using the guitar as a 'weapon,' life-affirming instead of destroying.

I'm sorry to read that this image made anyone sad, though.

I'd like to think this was the case. I fear you may be giving Jimmy too much credit here, however. :( I think he just thought it was a cool outfit.

Agreed most people put to much behind what they were wearing, for all you know it could mean nothing at all but look at me im badass.

I think Keith Moon wore something similar for a Who gig in LA in '77. May not be LA or '77 but I remember a picture and him saluting. Actually it was in the book called Rock and Roll Babylon or something like that

Well, apparently he hasn't eaten it yet, lol.

Thanks for helping me laugh about this. B)

Hi All,

I think he might just be imitating the uniforms of the Jasta 11 Division, German Air Force which are portrayed on the front cover of "Led Zeppelin II", what do you all think about that then?

Then Amelia Earhart could fly him I guess. Just personal preference. Some people have very poor taste in toys.

Jimmy looked very cool in the outfit. But in a doll worth a few dollars for 100+ Come on now.

Hi Beatbo,

I dont think its just the hat, its the leather trousers, shirt and jackboots as well mate.

I wonder how many English people he must have pissed off by wearing a Dragon Suit, i mean you know how the English hate the Welsh? :lol:

I just hope he didnt wear a thistle or shamrock on any of his clothes as this could spark a civil war over here you know? :lol:

Regards, Danny
