The snow has started falling, so you know what that means!
Last year we got the Headless Horseman in October, and Father Christmas in December; this year we got the Masque of the Red Death in October, and now the Four Horsemen are already back with another new thing!
You will be haunted...by Figura Obscura. Tomorrow (Saturday, 12/02/23), the latest character to roam the halls of the Figura Obscura shall be revealed, and you are invited to join us starting at 9am EST.
As was quite apparent, this time the figure is A Christmas Carol's Jacob Marley, possibly setting up the next few years' worth of releases.
It's made from Mythic Legions parts, with lots of new work to capture the classic look, and as of this posting, it's not sold out yet (nor is the "all in" bundle with cards, a pin, and a mug). There's also a little bit of previously sold-old stock available, like older cards and extras. If it does go before you get a chance to place your order, there will be a second drop tonight at 8pm EST. This isn't a preorder; the figure is already in stock and ready to ship in a few days, so get the figure for your wintry display now!
The OAFEnet Email Update reminds you to live your life in such a way that the entire world doesn't celebrate like Ewoks at the Battle of Endor when they learn of your death. Yimakh shemo.

Like we said in today's review, NECA's Ultimate The Thing Dog Creature features an instruction sheet, though it's a bit less than clear. We made this chart to help.
When you think "Thor," you think Chris Hemsworth, who started playing the character in 2011's Thor:
Ah, but he wasn't the first!
The OAFEnet Email Update will be the flattest balloon in the parade!
Locals in NW DC will of course be familiar with the Barbie Pond on Ave. Q, which is currently showing a painstakingly accurate re-creation of the First Thanksgiving:
In the years following the Blip, a weary Fury must face his biggest and most personal challenge yet when he learns of the Skrulls' clandestine invasion of Earth.
I didn't hate Secret Invasion the way a lot of fans did, but it certainly wasted some opportunities (and no, I'm not just talking about the "we can only afford one movie star" thing). Like, the entire plot hinges on Fury being out of touch and for once not knowing everything that's going on, yeah? But the reason they give for that is simply that he's given up? That doesn't fit him at all! Say that while he was dusted, all his contacts left the espionage game (whether through retirement or through also being dust) and now he has to work without his former leverage and is trying to make contacts among a new generation who thinks he's passé - you know, like a spy story. Which this ostensibly was. But instead, let's repeat Falcon and Winter Soldier's weird "refugees are bad and dangerous" angle.
