Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the OC Register,
When Derrick Johnson flew to Minnesota in February 2004 to watch the NHL All-Star Game, he thought he might buy a few collectible jerseys, acquire autographs, and rub elbows with his favorite players.
He left with a larger-than-life bobblehead figure of Ducks forward Teemu Selanne.
“I saw the Teemu bobblehead and had to have it,” the Orange resident said.
The mammoth replica-man set Johnson back a cool $7,400. Proceeds from the sale benefited Hockey Fights Cancer, an NHL charity.
The figure stands 6 feet, 6 inches, weighs approximately 200 pounds, and bears a striking resemblance to the Ducks’ All-Star.
