He’s such a Doll!

Barack Obama is more than just our President. He, as is the rest of the family, is a branding/marketing dream come true! Everything he touches practically turns to gold. It wasn’t long after he hit the primaries that the Barack Obama Action Figures made their debut — take a look at what’s on the market.

These are some of the American cartoonishy looking dolls, which will probably be collector’s items someday (although, I’m not sure who is in the market for them, and not sure that I’ve ever seen Barack in a white suit).

Day and Night Barack? What's with the white on white? (photos from http://www.barackobamafigure.com/index.html)

The Japanese have perfected the Barack Action Figure — they are   posable, have interchangeable hands, various weapons including a lightsaber, and red and blue ties!

The Russians also got into the action — but are much more metaphorical. This set of Matryoshkas, traditional Russian nesting dolls, depict Barack Obama and GW!
