The last couple of weeks have been crazy action figure-wise. Everybody is unloading their hot, new Christmas stuff. Also, not only did I get two figures from completely different lines that both came with what basically look like science-fiction dildos; I also got two figures whose appearances are greatly enhanced by fur.
Friday’s Gammorrean Guard was the first; today’s Grizzlor from the accursed Mattycollector.com is the second.
Lord knows I’m getting tired of doing Matty rants every time I get a new figure from those incompetent boobs, and chances are I’m working on another one as you read this. You see, Matty is putting a ton of older merchandise up on their site today in very limited quantities. They are also offering Battle Cat again, so I’m planning on ordering him and the Adam Strange/Starfire 2-pack. Since I spent a record seventy-five minutes ordering Grizzlor, I don’t expect this to go well. This is the one that I’m going to be trying to do from work on my phone. The Roboto sale went fine from the phone, but for Grizzlor I was trying on my phone and on my PC and the PC got through faster. I’m sure I’ll have a magnificent new rant for you tomorrow.
It wouldn’t be too far-fetched to say I ordered Grizzlor as sort of a joke. The character has no special attachment for me (like, say, fellow Horde member Leech; who I hope they get to in 2011), but he’s all furry. Like Sean Connery. The production photos on Matty were hilarious so I had to have him. I can enjoy ridiculous toys just as much as straight-up awesome ones. But once I opened Grizzlor up, I realized he actually leaned more towards the awesome side.
