Odds ‘n Ends > Steve Jobs, Four Horsemen, & Reviews

Random news bits: a $100 12″ Steve Jobs figure¬†(kinda creepy, possibly unlicensed), new Hot Toys Robocop figs, late-to-the-party¬†Samurai Pizza Cats figure. There was also a list of possible G.I.

I’d maim a clown for boxed sets of 7″-scale ED-209 and Cain/Robocop 2, […]
