OAFE Update for Thursday, May 12

Welcome to a special, double-sized email update. Why double sized? because we never sent one last week. Our bad.

We start two Saturdays ago, with a bookend to a review that everyone's probably forgotten by now. What happens when you take the floor from the set of Hee-Haw and dress it up like a homeless person? This figure: http://www.oafe.net/yo/dcdh3s.php

Have you heard the controversy about Janeal Lee, the Wisconsin teacher who won a wheelchair pageant, but was stripped her of her title when the pageant officials found out she could stand for brief periods? Bastards. Bet they wouldn't like this figure, either: http://www.oafe.net/yo/ml9_px.php

And now, a little something for the ladies: a hot, shirtless guy. Hope you go in for those "world conquerer" types. http://www.oafe.net/yo/dcdh3r.php

Name this character: created at the beginning of a hot, upstart company, this guy draws upon dark metaphysical forces to combat evil, wrapping himself in a huge red cape. Nope, not him: http://www.oafe.net/yo/ml9_ds.php

Not too many companies give us figures of a comic's civilan characters; it's not like ToyBiz ever made a figure of Paul, the guy who gasses up Captain America's plane, you know? But here's a civilain that's really pretty cool: http://www.oafe.net/yo/dcdh3cg.php

Of course, a lot of times the civilans are better than the characters who headline the comic - there are tons of B, C and D-listers in every comic universe, but not many of them get high quality figures: http://www.oafe.net/yo/ml9_dl.php

Ever wonder where the cliche of "the butler did it" got started? Beats me. Maybe we should ask this guy: http://www.oafe.net/yo/dcdh3a.php

Couple items from our board, the Loafing Lounge. First of all, a discussion of Conan series 2: http://www.oafe.net/cgi-bin/forums/ikonboard.cgi?;act=ST;f=2;t=1089

And then a look at Jazwares' new Mortal Kombat figures: http://www.oafe.net/cgi-bin/forums/ikonboard.cgi?;act=ST;f=2;t=1091

And a mini-review of the Eye of Sauron: http://www.oafe.net/cgi-bin/forums/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST;f=1;t=362
