What do you get when you mix Michael Lau, MINDstyle and the Godfather? You get a toy that you can't refuse. Every Godfather fanatic needs one of these figurines.  The cartoonish style is a fun rendition of the tough legendary man. 

These mafia figurines would make a perfect birthday present to melt a tough guy's heart.

Implications - These mafia figurines are sure to appeal to consumers with a penchant for geeky, playful household or desktop decorations. They don't take themselves seriously despite their inspirations, and that is hardly a bad thing when it comes to this kind of product. They do, however, shine light on how poking fun at stereotypical pop culture genres can be a recipe for success.
