Duff Goldman Action Figure to be Released

Good Monday news!

Our favorite Baltimore-based cake star Duff Goldman is getting his own action figure this fall! ( It's not a doll!)


Exclusively available through Charm City Cakes, this limited Minimate includes a wide array of cake-making accessories including two of the shop’s signature cakes, a drill-powered mixer, a chainsaw, wooden spoon, spatula, guitar and flame-thrower! Also included is an alternate baseball cap to recreate another Duff Goldman look!

Again, why hasn't Rachael thought of this already? Her action figure could come with a garbage bowl, EVOO, and a check for $18 million in her hand. Aunt Sandy's would prolly have a tub of Cool Whip, a packet of taco seasoning, and a gallon-sized jug of Jim Beam. For real -- a gallon. Not even mini-sized for the action figure.

Which other Food Network stars deserve their own action figures?

UPDATE: Several of you mentioned bobbleheads in the comments. Umm... was it not me who two years ago predicted the Giada Pez dispenser? I'm so suing if this ever comes out.

Robert Irvine is muscular enough to merit an action figure; his could come with a stopwatch, a self-destructing tape player, and some fake credentials.

Who would order that? It is so weird!

Giada should just release a bobblehead of herself.

I think bobblehead figures are kind of stupid anyway.I mean even most highly accomplished high profile athletes think they are idiotic and about 99.9 % have no resemblance to them anyway. I am sure they would rather generate revenues by selling jerseys rather than bobbleheads.

Now back to Goldman. Action figure doll ? The guy is a pastry chef. Pretty soon old Duff is gonna be reviled for going along with this. First stickers, now a doll. What a dork. You aren't content with massively overcharging cake customers for just above average cakes ?

Don't let it get out of hand before too many people start to hate you Lord Duffman. You're teetering as it is.

Ina - Good vanilla, keys to the BMW convertible, and a fresh floral arrangement prepared by Michael.

Giada - Crest whitestrips, PANCHEYTAH, and a very low cut top.

Anon 9:20 - As for who would buy it, I'm already searching CCC's website for ordering info...

...I wonder if next they're going to make a CCC hockey jersey like I implored Duff to do at his band's show in NYC a few weeks ago...

I was trying to make a joke (Obviously a bad one) about Giada's big head resembling a bobblehead doll.

Paula Deen head on the body of the Pillsbury doughboy. Maybe with a big old stick of the obligatory butter. And an extra set of false eyelashes.

And a Smithfield apron. And maybe mini Jamie and Bobby dolls.

And maybe a big long coat with Pat and Gina Neely riding on the tails.

Sorry,
I am soooooo looking for a Duff doll. Is it really any worse than crappy knives and cooking gear?

Duff, of all the folks on the FN, doesn't take himself too seriously. He's a breath of fresh air.

Oooo, Duff air fresheners, anyone??

melon_lord - They took away Alton Brown's KitchenAid stand mixer with the flame decals ... They gave him one of those fugly Viking stand mixers like they gave to Emeril before they killed his show ...


FN claims they don't "do" product placement on the shows ... and so they put tape or cgi to wipe off the "Pyrex" name from Paula's measuring cup & the Kitchen Aid name off her hand mixer ... But, they let Aunt Sandy have her Kitchen Aid stand mixer, blender, food processor, etc in plain sight ...

LOL. I love all of your recommendations for "products"! Jacob I laughed out loud when I got to what Aunt Sandie would have...and then the Giada Pez dispenser was the limit! LOL

I'm so totally getting one of these!

Duff is cool.

A Giada bobblehead would be too top-heavy.

Ya'll is crazy! LMAO! AND Gen that was the bomb mentioning the Neelys riding on Paula's long coatails! HAHA I was cracking up honey! And MArc u were right on with your descriptions for Ina and Giada. I love them both but I would include on Ina's a denim blue shirt with the collar popped and a pull string that showcased her constant laugh! And to reference little ole Liz re: "crappy knives" and "cooking gear"...I hope u aren't referring to Rach's knives and cookwear cuz I got it all and the knives cut like butter so don't speak what you don't know about. I cut some bacon off your a"" with them knives hahahahahaha

What exactly does his bands name mean "Soihadto"? So I had to be a fat fucking homo, soihad to hire my dream fucks fat ugly sister, soiadto hire a bunch of stoned freaky college kids to do all the work while I jerk off over pictues of Neil fallon, soihadto bend over and let Manwhore up my big fat ass. Or Soihadto open a "bakery" so I can pretend I had something to do all day.

That’s pretty funny there. I did chuckle. You obviously are so obsessed with Duff you can’t stand it. I could tell you what his band name means…..I did come up with it….but I like your meanings better. And I’m sure you’re a real looker. It comes through in the way you berate those you don’t even know. That is a funny little rant there. Good luck with your cakes. I’m sure you’ll have your own show one day too. Can’t wait to read what they say about you and your friends……oh, that’s right….you’re a nobody. Here, just read this: Understand people are gonna hate you regardless. Get that out of your head, that fantasy world where people ain’t hating on you. You gotta be grateful. You need haters. WTF you complaining about. WTF do you think a haters job is? To f’ing hate. So let them do their damn job. WTF you complaining about. Ladies if you got 14 women hating on you, you need to figure out how the hell to get to 16 before the summer gets here. WTF you mad about. Fellas, if you got 20 haters, you need 40 of those m’fers. WTF you complaining about. If there are any haters in here right now that don’t have anybody to hate on, feel free to hate on me. Sit back and say my hair ain’t luxurious when you know it is, bitch. - KATT WILLIAMS
