Figuretoon Quickies

"Trading Places"
9/4/13

Here we see the advantage of NECA making all their toys the same scale: two figures, from totally different lines, released years apart, and yet they can still trade accessories plus stand next to each other and look right together. Compare that to Mattel, who can't even keep a consistent scale within a single line.

The toon was originally just going to have Dutch and Kurt and the "here we are now" line (which comes straight from "Smells Like Teen Spirit"), but we were afraid that no one would get the joke: that it's vaguely similar to Dutch's challenge to the Predator.

The backdrop behind Dutch is the gym from the video; the backdrop behind Kurt is the trap Dutch built in the movie.

Dutch: Here we are now, entertain us!
Kurt Cobain: Come on... come on! Do it! Do it! Come on! Kill me! I'm here! Come on! Do it now! Kill me!
