My newest toy

At the risk of not having another date for at least five years, I present to you my latest toy:

"How's that for a slice of fried gold?"

Yes, I am completely retarded for all things Shaun of the Dead. I don't normally get these types of figures*, but I had to have it (on sale and with a co-worker's Tower Records employee discount, to boot). I can't wait until the Ed figure comes out.

In other news, the SotD brain trust has released a couple of teaser trailers for their next film - Hot Fuzz (their take on cop movies). Shame it won't be released until March.

*Pretty much all I've got is Zoidberg, Brodie from Mallrats, and bunch of "Simpsons" characters.

haha! sweeeet! I'd get one too, but I swore off the action figures a couple years back and I've been clean and sober ever since. I've got boxes of figures in storage at the moment...all purchased after my childhood.

Oh, yes. I have fond memories of hunting down a Darth Maul with you.

Seriously, if SotD wasn't one of my favorite movies, I'd pass (plus, it was only $8). If they ever make Braveheart, Caddyshack, or Thank You For Smoking figures, I'm in trouble.

At least I have enough restraint to not buy the Dawn of the Dead zombie figures...for now.
