    Ever since news came out that the Navy‘s elite SEAL Team 6 completed the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound and killed the world’s number one terrorist, the country has been fascinated with the unit. Now, that fascination has made its way to an action figure. But there’s a catch.

    The new SEAL action figure doesn’t feature a GI Joe-style serviceman. Instead, its modeled after a beefed up Barack Obama:

    The official name given to the figurine by the company Hero Builders is Rambama, a cross between “Rambo” and “Obama.” Emil Vicale explained the genesis of the new toy to the local NBC station in Connecticut:

    On Sept. 14, 2001, Vicale listened to then-President George Bush’s bullhorn speech from Ground Zero and was inspired to create Hero Builders.

    As Bush stood there, with an arm around the shoulder of a New York City firefighter, Vicale saw what he thought was the first moment that Bush fit into his shoes as president.

    “I can hear you. The rest of the world hears you and the people who knocked these building down will hear all of soon,” Bush said as New Yorkers chanted “U.S.A.”

    Almost 10 years later, Obama spoke the words that would make Vitale feel the same way: “Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda.”

    With that statement, another Hero Builders action figure is born.

    Ugly, stupid, and way overpriced. Typical election year garbage.
