On January 17, Robert Coalso tweeted an image of Vladimir Putin riding a bear action figure for sale at the Ismailovo market in Moscow.
There’s a Russian website where you can buy the Putin action figure but there are a few catches: you have to either call the distributor directly to make an order or email them and supposedly they’ll write you back. Since this is the case, I have no idea how much the damned thing costs.
That being said, I do not speak or read in Russian, so I’m going to let Google translate the customer testimonials for you. Here goes:
ANNA, marketing manager: “I bought myself a figure - so cool. All her colleagues wanted to. And the delivery fast advise everyone!”
MARK Terskikh, individual entrepreneurs: “Presented at corporate employees. Happy gift, stylish, beautiful and patriotic. Quality figurines on top. Thank U. Ordered to friends.”
ARTEM DOMRACHEV, PR-director: “The wife has long wanted such a figure. Now is the case and the guys helped. Quickly, quickly, efficiently! In general, well done! Thank U!”
STEPHAN TOLMADOV, Art-director: Gave the children of the department, began to shove creative:). Figure actually charges:)
If these fine testimonials don’t make you want to own one, I don’t what will…
