Collectible Bobble-head Dolls: With the Los Angeles Lakers being the NBA's 2008-09 champions and Kobe Bryant being MVP of the Finals and among the greatest basketball players of all time, what could be better than having a life-size Kobe Bryant bobble-head doll to capture the moment? This is that quintessential gift for that bigger-than-life Kobe Bryant fan in your life. We found this novel collectible at the official online store of the Los Angeles Lakers.
The sales copy on the Lakers' online store states "life-size." According to representative of the online store, we were advised that the ceramic Kobe is as tall as the human Bryant and stands at 6 feet, 6 inches tall. Since it takes 90 to 120 days to ship, it is likely that each is made to order.
It may be difficult to forecast demand for such a collectible since the price of this hard-brittle heat-resistant clay version of KB24 is $13,000, excluding shipping and handling. Could you imagine seeing a warehouse full of these bobbling at the same time?
If that is just a little too much Kobe for you to handle, there also is a 3-foot tall bobble-head Kobe for $599 and an 8-inch version priced at $30. See all three Kobe dolls and more with a visit to LakersStore.com.
