Before Robert De Niro was wishing for a rain to wash the scum off the streets, or considering offers that couldn’t be refused, he was selling gas guzzlers to families in the ‘hood.

“Hey, Richie, get the sneakers off the seat, will ya please?”

Or Bobby will throw you in the trunk…

Or the “Cab Driver” doll, to be more precise, which is part of the Brother Production company’s “Crazy Killers Collection”.

The 12” doll comes with two heads, replica army jacket, sunglasses, four different kinds of gun and even a miniature recreation of Travis’ infamous arm brace/gun rig. It’s actually pretty neat!

And it can be yours, via Ebay, for only $350.

As you all know, the role for “Sonny Corleone” went to James Caan. I think Robert De Niro might have made a better “Sonny” IMHO. At least he’s part Italian.

Apparently, in order to get into character for the film Taxi Driver, Robert De Niro obtained his own hack license and would pick-up/drive customers around in New York City.
