Facebook Blocks Zuckerberg Action Figure, JTLYK.


Sorry, male-doll enthusiasts, but Facebook’s lawyers are not sharing (which, QED, is caring) the Mark Zuckerberg action figure, a lifelike, seven-inch future Winklevi voodoo instrument.

Yesterday producers of the short-lived doll, Made in China Gadgets, posted an email they claim was “from a Beijing law firm representing Facebook.Inc.” According to the toy makers, “[t]he law firm has informed us that the Poking Inventor action figure has not consented to the use of Facebook’s copyrights and trademarks, and at the same time, using Mr. Mark Zuckerberg’s portraiture for commercial purpose.”

The doll:

Here’s a close-up. The head sculpt is unique and supports some good detail. First, the full head of light brown curly hair is stunning, the paint job is perfect. The great detail work in the face shows his intense green eyes and freckles.

The blue jeans looks very real!

Here’s the fun part. The figurine comes with two small rectangular small acrylic plates measuring 2 X 5cm and you can attach the plate into his right hand.

To make the figure even more fun to play with, three speech bubble cards are bundled with the figurine. You get a marker (not included) and write whatever you want on the speech bubbles.

are you a fan of his? He has fans? Like why would you want it?

Although I would by a Warren Buffet bobble head in a minute.

I think it's like having a cute little man on your desk. Not a zuckerberg. so no, not a fan but I think it's cute.

Why would you even buy that?

I wouldn't want that creepy thing sitting on my desk. I think it would come to life Nightmare on Elm Street 3 style and kill me while I'm dreaming.

If he's on a presentation stand, he's not an action figure.

That's a doll.

and that's ok.

but that's not a ninja turtle with kung fu grip.
