    Tony probably had to explain to Steve what "Star Wars" was lol. :) That was awesome though.

    The boxed image of the upcoming Kmart-exclusive Death Star Scanning Crew 2-pack, one of three Kmart exclusive sets planned for the fall and Holiday shopping season.

    While the other Scanning Crew set contains a grey-uniformed scanning officer and a repack of an older Stormtrooper (the 2004 VOTC clamshell figure I've heard), this one contains the black-uniformed Death Star detention block officer (Lt. Childsen; "Where are you taking this - thing?") who hasn't been immortalized in plastic form up until now. I imagine this set will be more popular than the other Scanning Crew due to Childsen being in it and more than a few people getting tired of repacked Stormtroopers using older molds.

    The third Kmart set will be the Ewok Catapult, which will come in a slightly larger package to accommodate the catapult weapon pieces and retail for about six more dollars than the two Scanning Crews.

    Zing!

    Something about Tony Stark as Han Solo just seems so....right. Except Tony's Han would never even get up and leave the Cantina after shooting Greedo - he'd just keep sitting there and downing shots of booze until closing time.

    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.

    Bloody hell! How far has this spread? :lol:

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

    I saw KM share the AMC Theaters page and went:

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

    You're a Facebook toy celeb now.

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

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

    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! :lol: I'm pretty proud of my Ken doll cosplaying naked Hawkeye! :p

    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!

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

    "Why are there elf ears on Hulk?" :scream:

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