Perhaps the best action figure ever, except for all the ‘Star Wars’ ones

GhostfacedollIf you were reading the music column in The New Yorker last week and wanted to know where to pick up the ultra-fancy Ghostface Killah action figure (the one with “a paisley print robe and a tiny gold chalice studded with Swarovski crystals”), here’s the Web site: TheGhostfaceDoll.com. This GFK doll may be even better than the Napoleon Dynamite doll. They’re only making 1,000 of them, and the fine print notes than “each collector will have a 1 in 500 chance to spend a day with Ghostface Killah himself,” which sounds cool, although it’s unclear how the math works there. Also, each doll speaks “original recordings of Ghostface Killah catchphrases.” Sounds well worth the $500 price tag.
