MANILA – Several action figures of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte were among the toys on display at an exhibition at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City which opened on Friday.

The figures were created by toymaker Dennis Mendoza, who supposedly made them in honor of the new Philippine leader.

Some figures depict Duterte with his fist raised in the air while the others show him flashing the dirty finger.
