My kind of mashup

I'm indebted to Andy Nulman, who keeps the terrific "Pow! Right Between The Eyes!" blog, for finding and posting what may be one of the best images I've seen on the web so far this year - or ever, for that matter:

As Andy says: if you have to ask why this is so incredibly cool, you probably wouldn't get it - but I'll explain anyway...

The Mickey Mouse figurine is the result of a collaboration between Japanese company Roen, Medicom and Disney (yes, it's apparently officially-sanctioned by the House of Mouse). They've taken Pennie Smith's iconic photo from the front of my all-time favourite album and
helped make Mickey seem a whole lot cooler in the process.

Now I just need to find out where you can actually buy one of these...

OK, yes - I'm a geek.
