Michel Foucault action figure
Keenly aware of the fluidity of social identities, this 6.5" Michel Foucault waves his baton in poststructuralist style at all challenges.

The funny thing (which, admittedly, is not very funny): I would buy one of those if they were real.

I found this link just the other day via the blogs of a couple of friends, and all I could think was, "That one on the top is obviously a repaint of the Giles figure from Series 2 of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer figures by Moore Action Collectibles."

I'm a big toy geek.

I want it! Too bad he's not wearing the mini he wore to Harvard. Guess I'll have to break out the sewing box.

I'd only buy it if I knew I'd be able to build a collection of Michel Foucault BDSM toys and paraphenalia to use in my Malibu Dream Dungeon...

Damn, I was hoping it would be another set of Monty Python action figures from the Philosopher's Football Match sketch.

I want a Derrida action figure with a special kung fu differance grip...

I'm holding out for the Umberto Eco. Pull out the string in his back, and he confuses you in four different languages (mostly Italian).

I want the Gilles Deleuze figure so that I can defenestrate it.

Where's Frederic Jameson? Even toys should historicize!

I heard that the Haraway figure looks just like Seven of Nine. Jeri Lynn Ryan is pissed!
