First Look: The Michelle and (Barack) Obama Action Figures

Mrs. Obama: Evening and outdoor

Michelle: Belle of the ball and towering eyeful.

You know you’ve arrived when you’ve got your own action figure.

So today marks the day when Michelle Obama is tranfromed from mere First Lady to Super Lady.

Ditto her hubby, Barack Obama.

Today on World Talk Live!, HeroBuilders.com CEO Emil Vicale unveiled the new Obama dolls, which go for $49.95 a pop.

But he cautioned collectors that – due to an anticipated glut of orders – they may have to wait up to 30 days to get their “political figures.”

He also told us that the Obamas aren’t on his comp list – quite yet:

First couple

First Couple: Stylin' big-time.

“I don’t want to be one of those lunatics who sends a package to the White House.”

But in moments later, he added that if President Obama were to call to request his and Michelle’s likenesses:

“We’ll be more than happy to send him and his family his action figures.

“In fact, we’ll send a dozen.”

Soup for NYU!

Larry Thomas: Soup for NYU!

Nothing 101?

That may be the idea behind a series of college seminars planned by Seinfeld distributor Sony Pictures for cast members of the classic sitcom, including Jerry Seinfeld and Larry Thomas “The Soup Nazi” Thomas.

In an exclusive interview airing Tuesday, August 12 at 9 a.m. ET, Thomas tells World Talk Live host Brett Cohen:

“I’m gonna join Jerry and tour to a few different colleges. They’re doing sort of a Seinfeld presentation at some colleges. I know they’re gonna do it in September at NYU. And in Phoenix and in San Francisco. So I’m gonna join him on a couple of those dates.”

Larry – who in real life sounds nothing like his signature character – also says he’s growing his mustache back for the events:

“[Sony hasn’t] said anything, but I’m assuming they’re gonna want me to at least look the way I looked on the show.”
