Barack Obama hasn't just clinched the Democratic presidential nomination -- he's also a real doll.

German dollmaker Marcel Offermann is offering a 14-inch tall Obama figure, complete with black suit, a sky-blue tie and Stars & Stripes lapel pin.

They go for about $220 each.

Offerman says he produced a limited run of 999 Obama dolls and first 45 were sold in a matter of hours yesterday.

The Obama figure joins the doll-makers roster of mini-celebs that include Princess Diana and Pope Benedict.
