The latest gimmick to hit the market just in time for Halloween: The First Lady Action Figure. It is being heralded as the first toy in the likeness of Michelle Obama.  WRONG.

I like to boil things down to their essence, and the toy on the right gets my vote for Toy of the Year, especially with the photoshopoopage of the photo on the left. Those proportions just aren’t right, even for Barbie.

In context, the toy on the right is immediately recobanizeable as The First Lady in all her glory, just as Aretha Franklin and Barbara and George Bush were similarly memoribalised below:

Here at TR, our crack team of webminers previously posted Lego’s Contribution for the adulation of the devout:  a full landscape model of THE INAUGURATION.   It’s awesome.

But Michelle’s action figure is still not as awesome as this one.
