  3. I keep misreading Ben Mckenzie and Brett McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords and thus have a very different version of Gotham happening in my head.

  5. You're welcome! And Hiddles is amazing at impressions. I find myself thinking, "WHY ARE WE NOT FRIENDS YET, TOM?" all. the. time. ;)

  7. FIREFLY FUNKO FIGURINES?! Well that makes my heart happy. My hubs just got me Jon Snow for Valentine's day! My collection is slowly growing. I'm weirdly excited about the addition of Paul Bettany to the Avengers cast. Although I know he's been in some widely considered 'B' movies, I still have love for him. And if you've never looked up the origins of the 'F' word, it's actually a pretty cool background! Assuming you like random trivia, haha.

  8. Sadly, the figurines are standard action figures rather than POP! figures, but I bet they'll still be awesome. And my hubs got me R2-D2, haha! Great minds, these gents.

    I like Paul Bettany a lot too. And I'll definitely look up the origins! I love random trivia like that.

  9. I discovered that (about the figurines) after the fact, haha. Oops! Not as exciting, but still sweet! I just discovered they are releasing POP! Plainswalker figurines from Magic the Gathering. My husband is big into MTG, so I can't wait to surprise him with some!

  10. I saw that they've announced a ton of new POP figures at whatever toy fair there was this past weekend. We can only hope that there are Firefly ones coming eventually. :)
