POP action figure of Uncle Sam #12
Uncle Sam (or Uncle Sam) is one of the best known personifications of the United States. Symbol of the American government, or propaganda for military enlistment, this fictional character inspired by President Andrew Jackson is one of the most popular images worldwide.
If when we talk about Uncle Sam, you immediately imagine the character in the colors of the American flag, do you know his origin? It dates back to the War of 1812 when American soldiers who received crates of meat marked "U.S." from a supplier named Samuel Wilson had fun interpreting the initials as those of Uncle Sam's crates! A hundred years later, cartoonist Thomas Nast was the first to draw a poster of Uncle Sam. The image became popular again with army recruitment posters during the two world wars, on which the character was depicted under the slogan "I want you for U.S. army"!
More than an icon of American culture, Uncle Sam is America personified and therefore has a natural place in this collection of Funko POPs featuring the history of the United States. Uncle Sam's POP is faithful to the character as he appears on the recruitment posters of the American army. We find an elderly character with white hair and goatee. He frowns his thick eyebrows and points at the reader. In this posture, it is easy to guess that Uncle Sam is launching his "I want you".
Uncle Sam's costume makes no doubt about the character. He is completely in the colors of the American flag from head to toe. We find his white top hat with the stars of the flag on the background of a blue stripe. Uncle Sam wears his red and white striped pants, his white shirt with a red bow tie and finally his blue tails jacket. Unless you wrap yourself in the American flag itself, you can't do better for this Uncle Sam POP!
This figurine will perfectly find its place alongside the other great characters of American history, especially if you already have Rosie the Riveter's POP.
