New Game of Thrones Action Figures from McFarlane Toys

    The final season of Game of Thrones is here and the online world has certainly expressed their mixed feelings about it.  I don't envy the people behind the show, as every detail will be picked apart and scrutinized like a rotten corpse being eaten by opinionated vultures.  McFarlane Toys is now offering you the chance to reenact or completely reimagine this final season however you see fit with their new line of six inch action figures.  Each one is insanely detailed as you would expect from one of their creations and come packed with enough articulation that Jon Snow will have no excuse for not petting Ghost in the last episode (supposedly it was a CGI issue, as no one interacts directly with Ghost since he has grown so big).  Daenerys Targaryen, The Night King, and Arya Stark are also available now at Wal Mart, Target, Amazon, and specialty retailers for $19.95 each.

    Of course you can't have an accurate recreation of Westeros without a dragon and that's why there's this ultra huge Icy Viscerion.  He sports a 16.5 inch wing span, comes with removable fire breath and a base which captures him mid flight.  You can pick him up from Amazon, Target, and Best Buy for $25.99.

Medieval Spawn Resin Statue from McFarlane Toys

    A few years ago Sharon and I decided we were gonna go to the Renaissance Fair in Lancaster.  We're all into Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings, so we thought it could either be really cool or we would be horrified and have funny stories to tell afterwards.  So there we are, speeding down the Pennsylvania Turnpike, when we see a sign with a giant cow on it advertising German food and an antique market.  We glanced over at each other, mouths agape, and to this day have never made it to the Renaissance Fair.  We keep trying but find ourselves unable to pass that exit.  It is probably as far west as we will ever get in that state, because not only do we stuff ourselves with the most delicious beef you have ever tasted, but the antique shopping is prime.  

   Now if I was guaranteed that I would see stuff like this roaming around, I might be willing to ease up on the brakes on keep driving.  I bet the ending of Braveheart would had been a lot different if Spawn had been the lead character instead of that wussy Mel Gibson.  And it would have been a lot shorter, because they would have taken one look at this dude, turned right around, and fixed everything he was upset about.  The whole mess could have been resolved in the span of a commercial break.  

    This resin statue from McFarlane Toys stands a whopping 17 inches tall, comes with two different heads, and is sure to make your cats think twice about holding Wrestlemania in your living room at 3 in the morning.  Preorder one of these highly detailed beauties now from this link.

Stone Cold Steve Austin WWE Icon Statue from McFarlane Toys

    Sharon and I just watched the Monday Night Wars episode about Stone Cold and there is no doubt in my mind, he was the greatest superstar in WWE history.  He was the epitome of the anti-hero, someone you could look up to when you hated your job, hated your car, hated whatever else it was you hated.  And you wish you could have reacted the way he did, just flipping your troubles the bird before solving them all with violence.  It's the stuff you dream about doing.  Real life is of course not like wrestling, because of laws and police and life imprisonment and blah, blah, blah.  But you gotta pay tribute to the guy who every Monday Night, made you think that you could just as badass as he was.  

    McFarlane Toys has released this as the latest in their line of WWE Icon Statues.  I don't know if it smells like cheap beer or not, but I know it's limited to only 500 pieces and each one comes with a piece of the ring skirt from Wrestlemania 17 when he fought The Rock.  Not only would this look great under your Christmas tree, but it would also be a good replacement as the focal point of your living room when your tree starts to turn brown. Surrounding it with lit candles and offerings of beef jerky seems appropriate.  Step up your decorating game at

Macho Man Randy Savage Resin Statue from McFarlane Toys

     You know you like wrestling.  It's totally ok, cause I like it too.  Sure, I lived in denial for a few years, neglecting to follow it or even know who many of the people involved were.  But one night I looked at my wife and asked "how come we don't watch wrestling anymore"?  Neither one of us had a real good reason.  So we started up again and instantly got sucked back into the spectacle of it.  We even drove up to our blighted state capital to see it live this past Sunday and had the fortune of sitting next to the best commentators I have ever heard in the form of an elderly couple.  Most of it consisted of the woman asking what was going on and the man doing his best to explain it, but there were some gems too.  When John Cena was fighting Randy Orton in a cage for the title (this was non televised, so no belts were going to change hands mind you)

Woman:  How come John Cena didn't drop down when he was outside the cage? (note: if both feet hit the floor you win)

Man:  Cena don't want the title, it's too much responsibility.

    Not that it was scripted to happen the way that it did, but that the responsibility of being the world champion was just too much and may infringe on his free time.  Coming from someone in their 80's it was adorable.  The WWE needs to hire them right away.

Back to business:

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOH YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!  The Macho Man Randy Savage is getting his own resin statue courtesy of McFarlane Toys.  This sucker is commemorating his appearance at Wrestlemania 5, stands over 17 inches tall, and comes on a rotating base so you can spin him all around and realize his awesomeness.  Put it on your mantle and surround it with offerings of Slim Jims so that the wrestling gods will smile favorably upon you.  Preorder this sucker right now wherever you like to buy toys.
