Life-sized Kobe Bobble

Here's an item you'll never, ever, ever see on my annual Christmas List: A life-sized Kobe Bryant bobblehead doll. I am not making this up. For a mere $13,000. That's actually cheaper than the Shaq, Allen Iverson and Yao Ming life-sizers they came out with a few years ago. Those babies were $27,000 each. I guess the economy is even affecting the life-sized bobblehead market.

Anyway, the Kobe-doll is available for pre-order and will be shipped out in September. I wonder if you can order one that's fitted with a custom t-shirt...

Somewhere, there is a Kobe lover who is getting some very inappropriate ideas on some modifications for this bobblehead.

Good Lord, for 13K it better not look as crappy as that picture does. The head looks like it belongs to Tim Thomas and the body looks like a cut-out. Also, since there is no scale to compare it against, how do we know it's "life-sized"?

Concerning it being "life-sized", does that include the head? I like to think it does.

Really? LIFE-SIZED? Because it looks like the bobblehead is standing on, if we're talking about life-sized and to scale, a platform that's somewhere around 8 inches off the ground, which added to Kobe's listed 6'6" makes for a 7'2" statue. Do they recommend you not buy it unless you've got friends who are at least six feet tall to make sure there's someone who around who can actually bobble the head?

(The implications of a "life-sized" Yao bobblehead are boggling. Only he himself could bobble it!)

I've yet to see an NBA bobblehead that didn't scare me - KP

Any chance Footbawful will make a comeback this year?

I know you've got Basketbawful and By the Horns and you need to eat and sleep and stuff, but there's some great material that's basically writing itself out there:

-Jerry Jones cited concerns that there "weren't enough balls to go around" as one reason for letting T.O. go to Buffalo

-Ryan Leaf finally gave himself up on drug/theft charges; couldn't even hang onto a QB coach job at a no-name D-3 university. The failboat steams ahead!

FOOT-BAW-FUL!!! FOOT-BAW-FUL!!! FOOT-BAW-FUL!!!

Heh, Bawful so what was your cut in this marketing ploy?

I kid, I kid, this bobblehead was news in the blogocube like 5 days ago and has been spreading like wildfire.

Hahaha. I wish the FTC luck with their new project. It will probably have the same success as the RIAA cracking down on college students downloading music.

I bet that doll makes it on the next sequel of Puppetmaster.

It actually looks more like Michael Vick
