All American Candidate Toys Arrive From China

The toys are arriving at the dock right now! Thousands of toy loving folks have already ordered theirs. Better snap them up while supplies last!Obama is the first to get off the boat. Here he is spreading hope among his throngs of rubber worshippers.


Uh oh! John is about to take charge and lead the country to a new era of reform and if you don't like it, watch out. He knows how to settle arguments - in a completely new way of course!
Break your glass ceiling with this lovable pant suit stuffed with experience. Watch out in 4 years, because after everything goes to Hell, she may be back t take revenge!
Tired of the same old bland crappy corporate created toys? Take this defining moment in our history and pick up some quality toys designed by Jim Smith and John K.!





Sculpted by Chris Peterson and Arshak Nazarian. Manufactured by Reel FX Toys.

McCain's stance on foreign policy was simply summed up as " I have been around and Obama doesn't know anything".

Ordered mine last night! Awesome!

Disposable Ninja said...

I don't suppose you've got a Sarah Palin planned?

But Obama really doesn't know anything!

I really love these, but 25 bones is quite a lot for these toys. I'll see if I can scrounge together the funds.

I want to buy them.. but again Amazon don't ship toys to Canada, or at least let the money go through.

What can Canadians do to get these?

Mitch L said...

Yeah a Sarah Palin would be funny!

PCUnfunny said...

"But Obama really doesn't know anything!"

And apparently neither does McCain. That's why they are both lousy canidates. The whole debate was "This is what we should do" from both sides and nothing really was explained. If McCain is elected, he'll do nothing to improve the economy. If Obama is elected, he'll allow more useless government spending. Anyway, enough of that. These toys kick major arse. Hilary's big ol' butt can make a good coaster.

Check this site out John; Disney, reusing animation since the 40's. http://www.hemmy.net/2006/04/26/disney-animation-reuse/

Nice! Got an Obama for my desk at work..

Peggy said...

Oh, man, I just came up with a sales gimmick: Donate a buck to each candidate's campaign.

Or maybe sell two varieties of the whole set with a couple bucks going to each campaign. Kick the idea around; I really think it's got the potential to be Digg-bait with a little more polishing.

While I realize that not everybody can pay $25.00 for a toy, having made a toy myself, I'm impressed that the price is that low.

Designer toys (i.e, toys for grown-up collectors) can range anywhere from $8.00 to well over a hundred.

They look great, too - I can't wait until mine show up in the mail!

vicki said...

oh boy.
do i ever love you.

HemlockMan said...

Those are great!

Josh Latta said...

Is that a Christmas tree in the corner?

Bob said...

I so want these toys I'm ordering for them right away!

Sven Hoek said...

Noah, as soon as I saw those disney pics it hit me, those are the same animation sequences, good call. Must have been in the back of my mind 'cause I saw the sequences play out in my mind and realized, yeah those are exact.

$25 each is a fair price for those toys. And they are even cheaper when you buy all three!!

oppo said...

PCUnfnny: Well, I agree with that.

Hey John, these things are good caricatures. Have you thought of doing a flash short to promote them?

In follow up to your Canadian posts a few posts back, have you heard the similarities between the Finger Eleven's "Paralyzer" and Led Zeppelin's "Trampled Underfoot", Skid Row's "Youth Gone Wild", Motley Crue's "Too Young to Fall in Love".

Man, your like the only beacon of originality from Canada at the moment!!! :(

Gavin Ball said...

These are awesome! Great designs...I'd like to see a Palin version too!

kris.w said...

i love the O'Bama sculpt. it reminds me of the caricature i attempted a couple weeks back...

caricatures aren't really my forte, but that sculpt is damn good!

lastangelman said...

I'm gonna' save spoutin off my political stance for other blogs, this is about mighty fun stuff, and these are figures damn funny and delightful and terrific and better 'n' any other corporate crap that's being flogged out there (dishes? coins? watches? PUH-LEEZE!!!). Good job, somebody award these people an NEA grant and pronto.

Man, too bad you wouldn't have time to do a Sarah Palin before, well, she goes back to Alaska. Anyways- I think if you did a short cartoon of a mock presidential debate that would be hilarious and probably make the news. Oh- and I would love to hear what John Liquor thinks of the $700 billion bailout! I really think he IS Joe Sixpack we keep hearing about... Or how about a story where John Liquor's cousin, Joe Sixpack, comes to visit?

Ale said...

Are amazings! I tried draw to Obama, is very nice! The design is excelent! (sorry for my english please)

Cheers

Alex Perry said...

Just got all three in the mail! These are awesome John!!!! Can you do a special edition Sarah Palin and Joe Biden. And for fun, why not Joe "The Plumber" I would pay top dollar for all three.
