250_obama-doll_678105n.jpgThis Barack Obama doll has received way too much press attention and is one of the worst recreations of the Democratic presidential nominee to date. Even abstractly, the doll doesn’t resemble Obama with the skin color a few shades too dark, the facial features way off, and the prominent placement of the American flag label pin. The hopeless 14-inch doll was created by German toy maker Puppenklinik, a company with a history of creating plastic representations of public figures—although by the looks of the rendering, never did a light skin black guy before. But the worst offense could be the price, with the limited edition caricature selling for $214 USD. Luckily, for the sake of the public at large, only 999 of these Obamanations were created. |Marketplace|
