Kamehameha -- king
of kool kollectibles

Now that it looks like a Kamehameha movie is in the works, we can spend the next year picking it apart before we even see it. But let's not forget the spin-off merchandising:

>> King Kam Action Figure -- He rocks! He socks! Fully articulated plastic toy features the bulging muscles of The Hulk with the clean-shaven baby face of The Rock. Press a button and King Kam snarls, "You! Huh? What!" Comes with Sharks-Tooth Killer Klub, Feathered Cloak of Doom and Swinging Coconuts of Death.

>> Kamehameha-Mocha Swirl -- Creamy brown coffee-flavored ice-cream goodness with just a hint of wango-mango surprise in the bottom of the collectible cup. Each cup has an image of an independent island kingdom conquered by the Warrior King. Put 'em together and they spell HAWAII!

>> Beany Kam -- Plush Kamehameha soft toy is as much fun to pet as it is to look at. Scrunch him up, flop him on top of your computer or attach him to the zipper of your backpack and Beany Kam will still stare at you lovingly with soft-cotton eyes when the day is through. (Do Not Remove Tag Under Penalty of Law).

>> Island Kingdom Board Game -- Roll the dice and get a cannon. Choose a card and score a shipwrecked haole military adviser. Hop on down the Imperial Path and rule the islands if you're lucky. If you're not -- watch out for that Splintered Paddle!
