    Since this is the time of year to buy crap and give it to other people, I thought I would share some of the things I have found that would make good gifts. And possibly make small children cry.

    [link=http://spawn.com/features/matrix2/sentinel.html]Sentinel figure[/link] - Waking up in the middle of the night and having a Darth Vader cut-out looming over me is bad enough. I can't imagine seeing this thing sitting on the nightstand as well.

    [link=http://www.octodog.net/]Octodog[/link] - Just don't tell them what it's really made of.

    [link=http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/standard-item.jhtml?id=0019830225780a&navAction=push&navCount=7&indexId=cat200008&podId=0019830&catalogCode=ID&parentId=cat200008&parentType=index&rid=&_DARGS=%2Fcabelas%2Fen%2Fcommon%2Fcatalog%2Fitem-link.jhtml.1_A&_DAV=MainCatcat20712&hasJS=true]Sexxy-Legs Turkey Decoy[/link] - No, this was not a Google search gone wrong. It is, however, still disturbing.

    And of course, I always highly recommend anything you can find at [link=http://www.mcphee.com/]Archie McPhee[/link], my favorites being the Punching Nun and the Pig Catapult.

    UPDATE: - OK, I can't get the turkey decoy link to work, you'll have to Copy/Paste.

    Goat - Inredibly well-made. Gorgeous, even, if the pictures are any indication. Just not the first thing you want to wake up to at 2:17 AM and have back-lit by lightning.

    Actually, I was more interested in that Mifune APU (nice nod to Toshiro). Now my proposed Matrix/Terminator cross-over story has a MechWarrior element!

    They have APU action figures? Sweet. :) Any pics?


    BTW, that Sentinel is one slick looking toy. :D

    look on spawn.com and you'll see the A.P.U.

    search for simpsons action figures and you'll find Apu.

    the A.P.U. is killer i hear.

    If you follow the link I posted for the Sentinel figure, the top is a list of pictures of the Sentinel, but below that you'll see links for Agent Smith, Morpheus, Neo, Neo-Realworld, Niobe, Trinity, and Mifune APU. The .MOV links are a cool 360-degree, rotatable view.

    Now that I look at them, the Trinity figure is pretty cool, too.

    The sentinel figure is 27 inches long!? With bendable, articulated tentacles? It may sound cliché, but "whoa!".
