Often the president's image can be altered one way or another to sell a product, but the Gundama action figure is the first time I have seen a commander and chief's head superimposed on a Japanese robot. I'm guessing it will be the last time I see it as well. Crafted by Italian artist Francesco de Molfetta, the doll is the latest in the line from the artist's 'New Ideas' collection which includes a series of altered superheroes including a very funny obese Batman which was featured on this site recently.

How Molfetta ever came up with the Gundama action figure is beyond me, but nevertheless, I quite enjoy the hilarity aspect. Finally a worthy opponent for my Vladimir Putin transformer.
