Mao, Marx, Lenin and Thoreau from Mountain Research Japan

These 9cm (3.5 inches) polyurethane “global revolutionaries” from Mountain Research Japan include: Chairman Mao, Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin and Henry David Thoreau. They come dressed in hiking outfits with rucksacks and hiking boots, and the price is…£145 (~$234 USD).
Although I wouldn’t call them “action figures,” per se, each gentleman is striking a pose, with Mao seeming to be hitchhiking. The Mountain Research men are made in collaboration with GELCHOP [thanks Spoon & Flower] in Japan, but you can import them from London here. It’s kind of fun and random, right?

Is today’s theme “extremely overpriced mediocre figures”?
These are actually very detailed, but Lenin has Stay Puft hands.
