Ex oriente lux

By Michael J. Smith on Thursday August 12, 2010 09:10 PM

Continuing this week's Darth Vader theme:

The Barack Obama Action Figure.

What seems to have happened here is that vapors from various American brains -- Markos Moulitsas', Arianna Huffington's, Katrina van den Heuvel's -- percolated out of their skulls and rose into the stratosphere, rode the jet stream hither and thither, and finally, due to some vortex in the upper air or the direct intervention of Providence, found each other and coalesced somewhere over Japan.

One peach-blossom night this self-organizing cloud of Pwog fantasy descended and found a fevered entrepreneurial brain suitable for colonization, and this work of utter sublime genius is the result.

I'm going to see if I can order one. It will drive my Pwog friends insane.

I don't know which image I like best. Perhaps it's "President, enjoy the winter in Japan":

MJS, you have to promise that you'll order the interchangeable hands, too, then cut off the appropriate fingers, so that we SMBIVistas can get some images of the doll flying the real digit this guy has for his more humble and/or deluded supporters. Okay?


Apparently one of the hands has bendable fingers with high-grade Japanese soft wire inside; you can move the fingers individually into any configuration you like, just as you can make the actual Obama mean anything you like. This is a *quality* product, just like Obie himself.


Axion Jaxin there would be perfect for modeling this pose...


..and the attitude that goes with it.

I somehow didn't believe this was real until I clicked through on the link (Darth Vader sparring with Obama seemed too close to parody). Incredible discovery.

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
