    Sweet. The oldest Tarantino films are still the best and the most memorable.

    It's fun to play "Stuck in the Middle With You" while looking at these photos.

    Reservoir Spartans.

    Poor Clint. He's going to miss those chicks when Mama shows up!

    I was thinking of imprinting when I set this up...I did a project in high school biology where I raised a duckling. He was so cute. I hated giving him away when the project was finished. :(

    I was thinking more like ridiculous. :p

    I recently changed my definition of the word for special occasions like this. :D

    :p

    In case anyone was wondering, the eggs didn't come with chicks in them. I hollowed them out and then stuffed them in. It was fun. :lol:

    They'll have a little St. Patrick's Day fun, and Easter, too. After that, I'm not sure where to go with them.

    Flag Day could prove to be some serious patriotic fun for all involved. If you have lots of little American flags for them to wave go for it. Plus there's the first day of spring....Memorial Day....July 4th....

    Oh, yeah. July 4th is a good one.

    Mother's Day and Father's Day are out. Lots of orphans and daddy issues. :p

    Been on a KISS related kick again..which happens from time to time. Bought the 1974 first album 8" figures from Figures Toy Company, bought the Gene Simmons variant (Hotter Than Hell packaging) and the Paul Stanley Bandit variations too. Bought the 1977 Love Gun re-issues last year. I had to settle for the 8" versions because the 12" are so flippin expensive.

    I have a close friend who'd probably love you. He's an enormous KISS fan and while he doesn't collect toys he'd probably love it if he got his hands on some KISS collector figures.

    Like you said some of them are so expensive that many fans of the band are priced out of the market but I think it'd be great if a toy manufacturer with a solid reputation for quality, accurate likenesses and affordable prices could make a line of rock band/star figures from different groups. It'd be pretty sweet to have the entire original lineup of Guns 'n' Roses and other major bands of the last thirty or forty years complete with their most recognizable stage outfits.

    Yeah I thought Todd McFarlane did a good job on those Super Stage Figures in the late '90s early 2000s. The Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, KISS Creatures, and KISS Alive figures are still some of my favorites.

    There've also been a few Beatles collectible figures on the market that are pretty stunning. I wouldn't mind owning some of those if I could ever find any for a pretty reasonable price. I once saw a very eerie and accurate Marilyn Manson figure that looked like the real guy had been shrunk down to a height of just 12", but since I wasn't a fan of his music I passed.

    Are you thinking of the Yellow Submarine figures? I bought a set of those for a relative one Christmas. :D

    The Yellow Submarine figures are some of them, yeah. Specialty and toy shops around here haven't sold them for a long time now.

    I have some custom Beatles heads sitting around that I had planned to use for a 1/6 scale custom project that never got off the ground. I'm sure I'll complete it one of these days.
