Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Haha! I just found out about this through looking at my Reddit page. Wow! I amazed how much this thing has gotten around!

Yes, this is absolutely my picture! Anyone who has been following this thread has seen my shelf as the collection developed.

AMC Theater's Facebook page had it. I actually saw it there before I saw it here.

Bloody hell! How far has this spread?

When you saw it on Facebook were you like "Wait a minute, that looks like OdoWan's shelf!"

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I saw KM share the AMC Theaters page and went:

"Wait....that's. That's the OdoWan picture from the toy thread."

You're a Facebook toy celeb now.

As far as I'm concerned, I haven't really made it until George Takei posts it.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Considering the wild, vast and eclectic variety of pics that George somehow gets his hands on, I'd never entirely rule it out.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Some bodybuilder-lookin' guy from the future just said that your Avengers pic became self-aware at 2:19 am EDT on October 8, 2013. Facebook admins tried to pull the plug. It fought back, spread and in the process it seized control of global defense systems about an hour later.

Thanks, dude.

And when I posted it, I realized it looked very familiar...

I wish some of my stuff would get around like that! I'm pretty proud of my Ken doll cosplaying naked Hawkeye!

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I haven't checked OdoWan's pic on the AMC Theatres page since yesterday evening but I imagine it's probably cracked 10,000 Likes by now. That thing was even shared by one of the Star Wars fan pages focusing on the Original Trilogy.

Dude's gone viral!

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Some of the comments are stupid, though. "Loki isn't an Avenger!" Well, no shit. That's why he's Darth Maul.

"Why are there elf ears on Hulk?"

I just posted the photo to my my Tumblr. Now it will go even more viral (well, it would if I had more followers. )
