The Kansas City Chiefs are selling all kinds of merch these days, including action figures. But this action figure doesn’t quite match the name.
This past weekend I was able to make it up to St. Joe to catch a Kansas City Chiefs practice during training camp. It was a blast. My family and I had a lot of fun, especially when getting to see the players up close and personal, and watching the delight of fan’s faces who got autographs from several team players including Patrick Mahomes and Chris Jones.
Speaking of Mahomes, though it was pretty cool to see him in person, I also saw him in the merch shop set up inside the training complex. Well, at least I thought I did. While perusing the merchandise, I stumbled upon what was suppose to be a Patrick Mahomes action figure.
I’ll let you decide for yourself if this is in fact PM2.
It’s almost too comical to be serious. Someone, somewhere approved that to be Mahomes’ name, image, and likeness—but it’s clearly not.
I polled some of the other Arrowhead Addict writers on who they thought this action figure really was and got some solid answers:
- Alex Smith
- Charlie Puth
- George Karlofogus
- Tim Tebow
- Jackson Mahomes
- Some guy named Toby (my favorite)
It could be anyone. Or it could be everyone. But the bottom line is, that is NOT Patrick Lavon Mahomes.
I get it, it’s a children’s toy and it is difficult to make a small toy like that look exactly like a player, but come on folks. You could try to make him look a little less like Gardner Minshew with brown hair. It’s also hard to believe that Mahomes willingly signed off on that product (I know, I know, he probably didn’t, but still).
Once you’ve taken another good hard look at the “Patrick Mahomes” action figure, let us know who you think this is really an action figure of. Your Uncle Steve? Jimbo from three apartments down? We want to hear it, and be sure to share this strange sight with your friends to get their opinion, too.
