    Aww... and cover up her pretty (yet kinda grim) face?

    Actually, I have a thing for girls in hats... not action figures though.

    Kahli already picked up a Sarah Connor figure. Hair up, no hat.

    That would be my choice also.

    The only Movie Maniac figure I ever got (until the Alien stuff arrives at least) was Eric Draven. I kinda wish they would do a Vampire Lestat, from Interview. I imagine he'd be a pretty popular fig. Maybe not the same pulling power of Terminator, but as much as The Crow.

    The Army of Darkness figs are pretty cool, I'd like to get the Ash v Evil Ash set.

    I picked up a Norman Bates figure from the same assortment as Eric Draven. I only got it because he was dressed as his mother.

    I thought you were capitalising "Mother", to emphasise her importance as a character. A validation of Bates' psychosis.

    And then edited it? That's not like Neech. Normally he'd just tell you to rack off!

    I imagine we can both expect such PMs from him later, for discussing him in his absence.

    I thought it would piss Luigi off more if I just changed it and not said anything. :p

    Talk about me all you like in my absence. At least then I know you care. :D

    No it's that damn Neech editing his post, it just makes me so mad.

    and I don't have any McFarlane figures.

    :eek:

    But weren't you esposing their wonderous sculpting and likeness in this very thread? I thought you were a big fan...

    I do think they're great but most of the stuff they make I don't have a great interest in.

    The Alien and Predator stuff is pretty cool (I gave that set to Neech remember).

    I'm more into the Art Asylum and Palisades stuff.

    Over here I've been lucky enough to pick up some of the new He-man stuff, very hard to find most of it! Nice line.

    I've also picked up some Medicom Apes stuff, and Raph from the new TMNT line. Cartoon starts next Saturday!

    please tell me there's no girl turtle in the new show.

    I think her name was venus.

    I must say I was confused by the name Fraggle that is probably why Neech asked what my age was....

    No! The new show looks well good! From what I can tell it's fairly based on the original Mirage comic series. If you aren't familiar with it, it's kinda what they did with the movie.

    The new show is supposed to be darker than the original cartoon, but it's still a kids' show, so how dark can it get? I seriously hope it doesn't suck as much as the new He-man cartoon (insert Neech's quote about sucky sucks here).

    The website has some soundbytes of the voices (which I feel are especially well cast, except for Casey maybe) and some sketches and other bits to whet the appetite.
