Tasked with fixing one of the biggest economic problems in recent history, the facial expression of the Playmobil figure of German Chancellor Angela Merkel seems surprisingly carefree and happy. Made for one of Chancellor Merkel’s political allies, Horst Seehofer, the figure was presented to him during a visit to Playmobil’s plant in Southern Germany. While only one figure of Chancellor Merkel has been produced, Playmobil did not rule out manufacturing more if demand for them arose.
Pictures of Palpatine’s Arrest, the 645 piece LEGO Star Wars set depicting the chancellors apprehension, have recently surfaced. Six different figures, including; Kit Fisto, Mace Windu, Chancellor Palpatine, Saesee Tiin, Anakin Skywalker and Agen Kolar are included in the set. Presumably set to be priced at $89.99, based on the European price of 89.99 € , the set is slated to be a Toys R Us exclusive.
