Last week, Sens. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Barack Obama (D-Ill.) were at each other's throats in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

But as plastic action figures, they're the "2008 dream team," a two-doll set offered by Herobuilders.com.

Which miniature candidate leads the ticket? Herobuilders won't say, but it's hard not to notice a disparity between Obama's "Beetlejuice"-esque shrunken head and Clinton's bulbous blond noggin.

"Obama's tux is too big, but his head is properly scaled," insisted Herobuilders President Emil Vicale. The Clinton doll is another story. "It has a big head, and that was intentional," Vicale said.
