It should come as no surprise now that my Lego minifigure habit is in full swing; I’ve even done some silly web comics with them.
So, while perusing the site a friend recommended (damn you, Spike!) I came across a weird mash-up figure that just proves that you can make clowns even scarier than they are already.
Yep, someone, somewhere had the bright idea of merging creepy Ronald McDonald . . . with Heath Ledger’s Joker face.
Just in case that gives you the chills and you need something to calm down with, how about the campest supervillain in the world:
Yes, of course I ordered one, but look at that promotional image – I don’t know if it’s the raised leg, the tilted head or the overall design, but Parallax looks positively divine, darling!
I have to admit, I’m still indulging my Lego figure habit (thanks, Spike!) and have just ordered another batch; I should probably take a shot of what I’ve got and show them off, eh?
As I was trawling round the site, though, one other, non-Lego related item caught my eye.
Imagine you’re a fan of British action heroes but you can’t find a good figure of your favourite. Sure, you can find generic figures for the body but you want something that’ll be instantly recognisable as your favourite action movie star, something that your friends will look at and go “Wow, look who it is!”
As long as your favourite action star is Jason Statham, you’re in luck. Buy a generic Action Man/GI Joe figure, pull off the head and replace it with this:
A surprisingly detailed 1/6 scale Jason Statham head!
Is there nothing you can’t buy on the internet?
