Really cool Gorilla Grodd figure can be seen somewhere

If you click here you can see the article about the upcoming Gorilla Grodd JLU figure. But whatever you do, don't STEAL the picture, lest you get a stern warning like the one we got on our comments page.

Man do I hate it when nerds get to be The Man. You'd think all the crap we took from jocks would result in some form of solidarity, but no.

Big Barda and Deadshot action figures by Mattel

From AFHUB, "Yesterday, I managed to acquire several highly anticipated and never before locally-released Justice League Unlimited action figures - one of which is the Big Barda, Deadshot and MM 3-pack. The other individual 3-packs I got were the Tracksuit Shayera set, the Obsidian set, the Volcana set and the Stargirl set."

More on those RM Star Wars figures

We should get Gary this!

These guys made 1:1 scale model of a 1940 Ford Coupe. The box measures 14 feet long by 6 feet high and actually holds the unassembled model. I'd call them geniuses if they weren't so clearly insane.

Some LEGO stats

LEGO crawled out of the primordial ooze a half century ago. The studded plastic block was created in 1949, but it wasn't until 1958 that the familiar stud-and-tube coupling system we all know and love was developed. Before that, the blocks were apparently prone to catastrophic collapse without warning.

Here are some silly LEGO stats for your amusement:

More than 400,000,000 children (and adults) will play with LEGO this year, spending five billion hours at their play.

On average, every person on Earth has 52 LEGO bricks.

The LEGO Group is the world's largest tire producer, with an annual production of 306,000,000.

You'd need a column of approximately 40,000,000,000 LEGO bricks to reach the moon.

The first LEGO wheel arrived in 1961, predating the evolution of LEGO people by 13 years.

LEGO MINDSTORM robotic products were a joint venture between the MIT Media Lab and LEGO.

Lego is not waterproof. I learned this the hard way as a 10 year-old home aqueduct builder.

More Ralph including Battlestar Galactica!

They should tap Ralph McQuarrie for more toys
