Gangnam Style mania is taking over the globe – and now a toy action figure has been spotted.

The zany music video has so far scored over 420 million views on YouTube and the dance is being recreated by the drunken patrons of pubs and clubs everywhere on the weekends.

Even Prime Minister David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson "have danced Gangnam Style".

The Gangnam Style toy is a 12-inch 1/6 scale posable action figure of Korean pop artist Psy, complete with his trademark power blue jacket, bow tie and shades.


The action figure can re-create all of the dance moves from the video, including the trademark 'Horsey Dance' (left), and is based on the real Psy (right).

The pictures were posted by Hyehwa on the BBS forums.

Despite its abundant awesomeness, it looks like this Psy action figure was not intended to be a mass produced product. But should it be? Would you stock or buy a this Gangnam Style toy?
