Verily, thou art a bargain
If you have $5 burning a hole in your pocket, there are worse things that you could spend it on than one of these nifty little Zeus figurines, available in the toy section at Target. They also had Poseidon and Apollo figures, and the Poseidon one was pretty solid, but Zeus was the clear winner, mainly because the manufacturers didn't let the fact that he was a children's toy dissuade them from giving him a loincloth that leaves very little to the imagination. Plus, he looks like someone threw the Anglo version of God into a blender with Sam Elliot. And he's getting ready to smite someone with a thunderbolt while standing on a pile of marshmallow fluff to boot. All perfect for a deity known for his foul temper and erotic escapades.
