A Connecticut toy company is capitalizing on the Anthony Weiner sex scandal by selling replica action figures of the congressman that come in two styles; standard and an anatomically correct version.

Both versions, available at, feature a doll of the embattled New York City congressman wearing a gray T-shirt and gray boxer shorts printed with the words “Tweet this.”


“No one is buying the one without the penis,” HeroBuilders President Emil Vicale said of the adult version, according to the Reuters news agency. He expects to sell more than 1,000 dolls by the end of the week.

The standard version costs $39.95 plus postage, while the “enhanced” version is $49.95. A stand for the mini Weiner action figure and toy Blackberry are sold separately. The company says shipping begins June 20.
