Marie Antoinette Action Figure

And, on the heels of this morning's Death of Spock toy, comes this Marie Antoinette Action Figure, with Ejector Head! And Removable Dress! Yipe! A big tip of the hat to Ralf Zeigermann at his The Cartoonist blog!

"This 5-1/2" (14 cm) tall, hard vinyl figure features amazing “Ejector Head Action,” and comes with a removable plastic wig and dress."

Also worth a peek: the Crazy Cat Lady Action Figure ("... has a wild look in her eye and comes with six cats") and the Deluxe Jesus Action Figure ("... with eight amazing plastic accessories: five loaves of bread, two fish and a jug for turning water into wine (not guaranteed to work for real). Also features glow-in-the-dark miracle hands!")

This is no gag. This is toy licensing gone mad!

No, this is Archie McPhee, a delightful store in Seattle. It's full of wacky useless junk, tasteless items, and surplus, surplus, surplus.

Accoutrements is their manufacturing arm, and is pretty much dedicated to producing tasteless, wacky, and usually offensive merchandise.

One of my favorites was the librarian action figure (with shushing action!) from a few years back. It offended a bunch of librarians (except the one that it was based on, who thought it was great).

If you're ever in Seattle, the store is well worth a visit (it's over in the Ballard area).
