The product pictured here is called the Truetype Figure African American Advanced Version. The box art advertises a display stand, "over 38 points of articulation," and an extra set of hands for when you get bored of the first pair. That's pretty much all Hot Toys Limited tells you. So if the action figure here reminds you of anyone, say a certain leader of a certain country somewhere between Canada and Mexico, that's just you. We wonder what other action figures inspired by world leaders might be like...
