OXFORD, Conn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You’ve heard of action figures, but one toymaker has just created the very first ever “inaction figure.”

Emil Vicale of herobuilders.com has made an “inaction figure” in the likeness of BP CEO Tony Hayward nicknamed “The Wanker.”

The doll depicts the inept CEO as unemployed and looking for work with a sign around his neck listing his qualifications, including “destabilizing local economies” and being a “whiny little b■tch.”

Since Hayward is so hated, Vicale admits there may not be much of a market for the doll, but it could be used to de-stress.

He says angry folks could buy it just to burn it, to try voodoo on Hayward, or to chuck it into the waters of the Gulf Of Mexico.

When Vicale released an action figure of Osama Bin Laden, people bought it solely as a target for shooting ranges.

Vicale also offers an “Ocean Snowglobe” of the polluted Gulf Shores complete with black snow when shaken.
