?There are very few bobbleheads I consider worthy of coverage on Topless Robot. But a bobblehead based on a rare action figure, with its own cult infamy, of a G.I. Joe villain dressed more or less like a pimp? The whole thing is so recursively awesome that I feel it is newsworthy. Behold, the Entertainment Earth exclusive bobblehead of the legendary 1997 Pimp Daddy Destro figure, complete with leopard collar and leopard whatever those things around his thighs are. Truly, a bobblehead anyone can be proud to own.

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
