    I have carefully trained my brain to simply not see anything related to My Little Pony. It was a matter of survival, really. :lol:

    Nice score, man...they look really neat! I don't collect any LEGOs but some of the minifigures in those sets are cooler than super articulated 3.75" action figures.

    I don't typically collect Lego either, but LEGO DEADPOOL!

    I'm just imagining parents trying to explain to their kids who Deadpool is.

    "Well, you see honey, he's an insane man who kills people for money. He's incredibly dangerous and without the tiniest bit of morals. Also, he has cancer, but he also has Wolverine's healing ability which keeps the cancer from killing him, but also makes his face look like a hamburger."

    See, he's a fun character for the whole family.

    Toys are more fun if they don't always have G-rated origins.

    If you knew Papa Smurf's backstory you'd be numb and nauseous for hours. :D

    Actually that was just a joke. But who knows.

    Google it. The little blue weirdo might be a lot creepier than we ever realized.

    Well, stop and consider this: Papa Smurf is the patriarch of all the Smurfs, and Smurfette is the only female Smurf we ever see.....
    :ack:

    Smurfette was made artificially by Gargamel

    Gargamel was a dude with a lot of issues. And I'm not just talking about his stupid wardrobe choices and bad grooming.

    An amazing new Emperor Palpatine(ROTJ) Mini-Bust from the folks at Gentle Giant...this thing is incredible! I'm a huge fan of the Palpatine/Sidious character so this masterpiece really scratches me where I itch. I might have to get this one!

    :cool:

    I was messing around and decided to make this for your enjoyment. The photoshopping is crappy, I know. I was just having fun:

    They're out and starting to hit, guys!

    Check your local Kmarts if you want to pick these bad boys up...they're only $14.99 a set, which works out to just seven and a half bucks per figure. That's $2.50 cheaper than most other Star Wars action figures at the moment, and the best part is...these are almost entirely new! None of these individual characters have ever been made before and use just a handful of recycled parts.

    My most wanted figure from Marvel Legends wave 3 in in my hands: The Iron Man Neo-Classic armor. He is a thing of beauty! However, he is plagued by the same problem that plagues so many Iron Man figures in this line: He's too damn short. Oh well, still a great figure nonetheless:

    Congrats...how hard was his wave to find? Or was the wave kind of easy to spot and it was just select figures like him that were hot sellers and quickly vanished?

    I got it online, actually. I haven't seen it at retail yet. It's probably only a matter of time though. Since Iron Man is the A-list character in the wave, he's heavy packed. As such, BBTS was selling him for $11.00. Not too shabby. I forsee the running changes of Punisher/Blade and Mystique/Moonstone being the difficult ones to find. The red version of Deadpool will probably be a hassle as well.

    How short is he, in relation to what the ideal proportions would be? Just going from that pic, he looks really nice. But I do know what you mean, and sometimes it's highly amusing to find figures with bizarre proportions (or which have been scaled up and down more than once, letting you make weird clone armies).
