Funko Pops has a cute series of the original X-Men, in their school uniforms. Blue, unfortunately, but that’s easily corrected.

(Depressing, tho, to Google “Funko Pops X-Men” and find a seemingly endless celebration of everything that went wrong with those characters.)

I was pondering painting them black when they were announced as well. I got into a discussion on a Funko board over the blue/black issue, and they finally conceded my point when I asked what color Superman's hair should be.

You must have fallen in with a hip crowd. I’ve been asked why everyone doesn’t know Superman and Clark are the same guy since they both have blue hair.

Mr. Byrne - it's the glasses. They distract his friends from the hair color.

Yet I don't recall anyone ever commenting on Lois' blue hair.

Superman's "blue hair" became one of the ways ennui-engorged fanboys could distance themselves from their addiction. "Oh, look! I'm so superior to these silly comics! See how I mock Superman's blue hair!"

feh!

Another online catalog from Skulls International. This is the site from which I purchased a real human skull a few Xmases back. They're offering more of same, and, like before, labeling each as "One of a Kind".

Errrr........

Pricey, but you can now own an articulated replica of the giant Ohmu insect from Hayao Miyazaki's Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind:

HLJ Link

It's certainly large enough to intimidate my S.H. MonsterArts figures...

Sigh. I managed to restore Kirby’s original version of Galactus’ eyes, but they were immediately colored incorrectly, and that error has been perpetuated ever since.

(I will never understand the ubiquitous, worldwide POPS! phenomenon.  They're cute and all, I suppose, but I just don't get why these things, of all toys or collectibles, have caught fire with diehards and the general public alike.  In some stores, there are full walls of these little guys!  Seriously, what is the appeal???)
