Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich -- as action figures.

If the exceedingly long campaign season just isn’t giving you enough of the GOP candidates, now you can have them in your own home. And you can even set them up in amusing poses.

Connecticut-based company Hero Builders has released dolls depicting the Republican frontrunners: Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum. Other available action figures include Rick Perry (regular man and executive versions!) and Herman Cain (solo and “with playmate” versions!)

Likely to rake in the most revenue is Rick Santorum who, of course, sports his signature sweater vest. And Gingrich looks uncharacteristically broad-shouldered in a gray suit and shiny red tie.  Romney comes buttoned-up, neatly groomed and, best of all, for an extra $100 you can get a miniature car roof with detachable dog! (Just kidding, but that would probably be quite lucrative.)

For just $49.95 apiece, these GOP action figures can be yours. For an additional $10, you can even get the speaking version of Santorum and listen to him talk about theology. (And we’re not kidding about that one.)

Emil Vicale, owner of Hero Builders, told the Detroit Free Press that the company usually sells a few hundred of each political doll. Sarah Palin has been the top seller, while Barack Obama has lagged behind. The most affordable doll is Hillary Clinton, who goes for $29.95, while the priciest is Herman Cain (with playmate) for $65.95.

According to Slate’s Mitt Romney income calculator, it would take Romney three minutes and 38 seconds to earn the money to buy all three GOP frontrunner dolls, but for the rest of us, they might just be too much of a splurge.
