Skeet-shooting Obama now a doll

Obama skeet shooting figure

President Obama's recently-released skeet-shooting photo has inspired an action figure of the president holding a shotgun.

Sporting a sweatshirt that reads "clay pigeons," the doll costs $19.95 for the first 1,000 buyers on herobuilders.com.

Herobuilders is the same company that made an action figure of Anthony Weiner, the lawmaker from New York who resigned after a Twitter sex scandal.

"Skeet-Shooting Obama" sports a somewhat demented grin and chiseled arms more akin to Rambo than the leader of the free world.

"It's too complex and costly to make multiple bodies," company head Emil Vicale told The Huffington Post. "Most action figures use just one body."

This is the fourth Obama action figure Vicale has created.

Others include one as the Joker from "The Dark Knight" and the "Rambana" action figure, in which Obama is wearing a black shirt with a skull on it, camouflage pants and holding a machine gun, according to The Huffington Post.
