I’m a tad behind on the next installment of Batman vs. Predator: If It Bleeds (the art is done, but I still need to add the dialogue), so in lieu of that, I thought I’d post this little post showcasing my haul from the Magic Toys ‘R Us last night. (Yes Paul, it came through with the Snake Eyes.) By the way, don’t forget to vote in the poll about the message board (it’s on the left below the menu).
I was in a buying mood when I hit the Magic TRU last night. In addition to Snake Eyes, I also picked up a Mega Bloks Plasma Kreaps toy (I don’t collect Mega Bloks, but I’d seen a post about these online and they looked neat) and a reissue Madball by Basic Fun. I chose Horn Head because he’s the closest I ever came to owning one of the original Madballs; in third grade, I traded someone else for one for about a day. I know I didn’t keep him, though, for some reason or other. Actually, maybe I never even traded for him, I may have just borrowed him…look, the point is he’s the only Madball I remember seeing in person.
Anyway, moving on…let’s start with the Plasma Kreap Gargoyle toy.
To explore this strange new bauble, I decided to enlist the aid of DCUC Batman. Take it away, Bats!
“All right, let’s see what we’ve got here…EWW!”
“Gross! What the heck is this thing? It’s all latex-y…like a body condom…um, not that I’d know anything about that. Anyway…”
“Oh my–oh, this is disgusting…this is like that time I had to give the Penguin a sponge-bath.
Did I just say that out loud?”
“Oh great, it’s in pieces. This is ridiculous. Now what the heck do I do? I need some help.”
“I’ll just use this claw thing here to pry this little guy out of his package…”
“Hey there, do you think you could–ohhh crap. You’re the mute guy, aren’t you? Dammit. Well, maybe you can, um, point to something. Here, follow me.”
“So here it is. I don’t have any idea how to put it together, so I thought–what? That over there? That’s the packaging–we don’t need that–hey, where are you going?”
“Oh, ha ha. Instructions. Well played, Ace Deuce or whatever your name is.”
GARGOYLE: “Took you bastards long enough!”
BATMAN: “…shut up.”
…and here’s a Madball.
