I'm sure you guys remember the Barack Obama action figure
whose images circulated around the 'net a while back-- but recently I stumbled upon this image. I honestly thought it was a particularly good photoshop job and set it aside.
Then pal Randall
pointed me to the figure itself on Hobby Search, and confirmation of its existence blows my mind
. (It's technically from Hong Kong-based Hot Toys, but it showed up on a Japanese figure site, so it's applicable...right?)
As I warned you in the headline, Obama comes only in his birthday suit. But he's 1/6 scale and as such will fit any 1/6 clothing). So I guess if you wanted to pick up some Barbie or Dollfie attire, you could throw it on Obama here.
I dare any of you to order one of these and dress it up as a magical girl. I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU. It's due out in August with a ¥4667 SRP (about $50 USD).
