The next product from the Malcolm X franchise? A Malcolm figurine, coming in February from the New York-based Olmec Toys. ”It’s not a plaything like G.I. Joe,” says a spokeswoman. ”It’s something kids will put on their shelves for inspiration.” The second in Olmec’s ”Our Powerful Past” series of African-Americans, which debuts this Christmas with a Martin Luther King Jr. figure, the vinyl Malcolm doll will stand six inches high and come with a podium. Also included in the $15.99 price: a cassette of one of Malcolm’s speeches.
