Oh My Friggin’ Kung-Fu Grip ‘Bama

Okay. Um…

Coilhouse takes pride in not being yet another lazy link-dumping blog, but y’know, this is one of those times where the less said, the better. Just… just click the image below. It links to a very special place. Once you’re there, scroll all the way down to the bottom.

(Via the craziest Canuck I know, Chip Zdarsky.)

Gawd bless America. And Japan.

[EDIT 01/23/09: Hooo WEE! That one went viral so fast, it knocked the Gamu Toys website on its ass. Luckily, some smart fella over at wickedglee.com captured the site as a PDF before it disappeared. Here ya go.]

‘Couple more doozies after the jump.

    You missed the campaign speech where he promised to take on the Empire with nothing but a lightsaber, a submachine gun, and his wits?

    Great googilly moogilly! That is some kick ass presidential action right there.

  3. Ashbet Says:

    Oh. My. What.

    That is quite possibly the most awesome thing I’ve ever seen. Thank you.

    Now I kind of want one ;)

    So when do we get Coilhouse action figures?

    Terrific! Political giddiness aside, I’m just struck by what a good doll it is. Props to the sculptor, seriously. My favorite shot? The one with the Oranges.

    Awww…I get a 404 and the links on the top page of the blog have apparently been disabled. *pouts*

    I love that Japan loves Obama…because there’s a town of the same name there.

    Is it just me, or…does the face of that action figure actually not bear too much of a resemblance to Obama? I guess that’s not as important as his super-battle-action-go capabilities,

  8. Caitlin Says:

    I would hope that for the price, it would look at least a bit like Obama. And it doesn’t, so I’m not impressed.

    Caitlin, if you’ve seen the full extent of Action Obama’s prowess and remain unimpressed, I suggest you check your pulse. :)

    …or your voter registration card. could be a “R” on there without you knowing it. ;)

    I think it looks a lot like Obama, for an action figure — action figure models of real life people usually look like garbage, but this one’s not bad.

  11. Thews Says:

    I think the sculpt looks as realistic as one could achieve without laser scanning the presidents face and having a C.N.C. robotic arm sculpt it for you.

  12. Chris L Says:

    I think it says a lot that THIS president is getting action figures made of him. Whereas the last one…

    For the sake of comparison, here’s a clip of Bush’s 2001 inauguration from Fahrenheit 9/11

    Trust not, Todd Diamond.

    I’m just sayin’.

  14. Tequila Says:

    He’d SO take Vader down…

    Hope someone makes an animation of this figure taking on the greats…like say martial arts master Vladimir Putin!

    Maybe the Man of the East Hu Jintao in a bare knuckle brawl?

    Hell he could even go on a worldwide Dictator Ass Kicking Spree with Air Force One as his Wings of Democratic Vengeance!


    The ultimate grudge match…

    A Game of Death inspired fight up the Fox News HQ with Bill “Papa Bear” O’Reilly at the top in the No Spin Zone…OF DOOM!

    Come on internet…MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

    twin katana wielding Obama is love.

    but where is Guns Akimbo Barack??
