There’s now a Van Gogh action figure with a detachable ear

Quebec-based art website ‘Today Is Art Day’ has come up with a Vincent Van Gogh action figure that has a pretty neat ability. No, it can’t make you priceless paintings, but it can detach its ears!

The five-inch action figure features the renowned artist in a blue coat with a sunflower pinned to his chest. He also comes with a paintbrush and replicas of his different paintings, such as The Sunflowers and The Starry Night.

But the best feature would have to be the realistic ears, which you can remove – just like how Van Gogh cut off his left ear to give as a gift (if the stories are true).

Tag a friend who needs to see this! Our #VincentVanGogh action figure is now available on @Kickstarter! Help us reach our campaign goal by making a contribution (small or big). Every pledge counts! You will get: the action figure, the removable ears, a nice box from which you can cut a cardboard easel and display 5 masterpieces. And you will help pay a tribute to #VanGogh! We ship everywhere in the world!

If you’re not into action figures but still want some ear-ripping fun, you can get this Van Gogh plushie instead.
