On what I’m like

Allow the following to be a minor insight into my personality.  This is a portion of my desk:


Take note: Finn, Rey, a Stormtrooper, Kylo Ren, and Phasma.  That’s all the figures from this current film that I own; let’s not talk about the other movies.  I bought all of these before seeing THE FORCE AWAKENS.  Since then I’ve been considering demoting the Stormtrooper and Phasma to some other location in the house (or possibly, in fact more likely, a box somewhere) and I’ve been tossing around the idea of grabbing a Poe Dameron figure, since Poe is one of the few 3 3/4″ figures you can actually count on finding nowadays.

Just the other day it hit me: if I found a Poe, I could put him right next to Finn, and I could probably contrive a way to make the figures hold hands.  And then it became undeniable: I had to have a Poe Dameron for my desk.

I had a few errands to run and found one at Target just now.  This is what the Poe figure that matches the rest of these look like:


That helmet is molded on.  It can’t be removed.  And I didn’t buy the figure, because if I’m going to get into yaoi shipping on my desk, I’m damn well gonna be able to look both of the toys in the eyes while I do it.

(It has come to my attention while working on this post that there is another slightly more expensive Poe figure that is the same size, but not wearing a helmet.  In fact, he’s wearing the same jacket my Finn is wearing, which is even better.  So I’m now on a hunt for that one.)

And, while we’re talking about toys, I don’t own any of the Disney Infinity games, and in fact I’ve been doing my damnedest to not ever get sucked into it, but if I ever find this in a store I’m buying it anyway:


Because awesome.

That is all.

  1. I think Groot in a pot is the best thing ever. Also, have you seen the Star Wars Kama Sutra very unauthorised book yet? Your action figures need some action.


  2. did you really for real just use ‘shipping’ like that? i mean forget how clearly off your rocker the rest of this makes you. i’m calling someone. you need an intervention.
