I have been up to my elbows in toys. Ok, maybe my knees. It doesn't matter. I am two seconds away from being buried under a collection that is out of control. It's out of control for a reason though. I have pulled out so much stuff for these last three All My Toys stories for December. I am so hoping it will be a fun ending for the year. Playing with my toys and creating soapy stories captured with silly low rent style photos is something I really enjoy doing. It is my sanity even though I want to pull my hair out from time to time.
Seriously, I was looking for a Hellcat figure in my room for like an hour last night. For the life of me I could not find where I had placed her. I searched high and low. It got to the point that I was thinking of just not using her and leaving it at that until finally I saw a set of Marvel Legends figures knocked down. That damn Captain America and his wobbly ankle. Seriously, I expected more from him. Anyways poor Hellcat was knocked the F out on my shelf with Captain America, Savage She-Hulk, and Iron Man piled on top like some sort of weird toy orgy.
My point about all of this is that I had already hoped to have these toy stories posted for this month but things like side searches for figures has put a bit of a delay on my posting. I am close though to having things finished and I am so excited! I have been planning these pictures for so many months now that to finally be this close to sharing it with you all is so much fun. I just want to live in a toy world.
Currently I feel like I've been living in a galaxy far far away. Did you know that they have Star Wars oranges? There's nothing special about the oranges themselves, more so that the oranges are packed inside a net with Star Wars packaging.
I saw it on a meme. Something about Disney needing to calm down. I don't know. I am not a fan of oranges anyway unless it's artificial orange flavoring. I hate pulp. Makes me feel like I'm eating pieces of cuticle skin. I don't mind that Disney has trotted Star Wars out for every little thing. I guess it's partly because I am not a rabid Star Wars fan. I like the property though. I've collected the toys ever since the 90's version of the Power of the Force line. Oh how close I once was with the K-Mart toy aisle. Before they decided to leave my area. Ass hats.
On a side note, I did own an original TIE Fighter Pilot as a kid. I found it in my front yard one Saturday morning and was like, "Don't worry little guy, I'll give you a home." I take in stray toys. Who doesn't? Bonus points if the stray has rooted hair. I'll work magic to deliver long flowing luxurious locks.
Back to the issue at hand. I can't recall a time where I haven't seen Star Wars merchandise for sale in some form or another. It's been going strong for awhile now, so with this most recent wave of everything having the title "Star Wars" on it, I am ok. It will pass. I actually like it when a big movie comes out and there's merchandise everywhere. Reminds me of my excitement for Batman, X-Men, or Gremlins movies. Oh the merchandise for Gremlins 2 was a dream come true. (Obviously Star Wars has taken it to a whole other level. I am aware. Still, Gremlins 2 deserved the same amount if not more.)
I'm even looking forward to seeing this movie. I didn't really jump on board for the prequels. I collected the toys, but that was really it. In fact the third prequel I didn't even see until it was on cable. I mean who does that?
To jump on the excitement of this Star Wars mania I even took a picture with that light saber app on FaceBook. (I chose that picture because my arched eye reminded me of Daryl Hannah's final fight scene in Kill Bill.) I love gimmicks like this. It makes me hopeful that if we ever see a She-Ra movie they will have fun photo apps like that. I would die to pose in a picture with a power sword or a glittery She-Ra transformation image. Or even cut and paste my upper body with Mermista's tail and fins. Oh my goodness I'd die a happy woman.
Anyways, I hope that all of you who go out to see the latest Star Wars movie this week enjoy it! Be safe. I can't even imagine how crowded the theaters will be. I'll see it once it isn't so insane. I don't do well with crowds. Unless the crowd is made of plastic articulated items, than I'm all set.
So that's about it for now guys and dolls. While it is December and feels like summer right now where I live, take a chance and listen to the latest episode of Eclectic Mayhem. It's our super sized Holiday themed episode that is sure to make you deck your halls with whatever you deck a hall with. I am also planning on posting some more fun stuff for the rest of December too. I hope you'll enjoy everything and I thank you all for stopping by and enjoying in all the dorky fun.
