Sorry about the lack of updates over the past week. It wasn't a great week and there were some bad parts. Still, I'm pretty much okay now.

In other news, I now have both the Kl'rt and Kitty Pryde Marvel Figurines that are lead-cast, and awesome (from Britain). They have these really awesome backstories and stuff about the characters. They are especially great because they are not serious, and they are very light, like if someone were just telling you the information.

Still looking for a Deadpool one (I know they exist, but I want to actually find one).

Okay, so knowing what you know about Deadpool and the Punisher, what age group would you say they fit into? I tend to think that high school and up, although there are probably younger kids who would be fins as well. Still, I never thought they would be as young as 3.

That is not your eyes deceiving you. That is cute versions of Deadpool and the Punisher (in Captain America garb, no less) marketed to kids. Okay, so ages 3+ means that because of the parts, below 3 would be problematic. Still, though, these are for kids. Deadpool has swords, and okay, fine. Punisher has some futuristic gun. Oh, and a machine gun. Not a futuristic one, but a freakin' machine gun. For kids. Who OK'ed this at Hasbro? Who thought that it was a good idea in the first place? Hey, I know, let's take a deranged mercenary who is always badmouthing and acting like a complete idiot, all while going around killing people, and take a vigilante who goes around killing criminals, dressed in an outfit that is distasteful and disrespectful to the man who was the original, and market them to 5 year olds! Brilliant! Sigh...

Oh, you know those Cap/Iron Man thing that Carlos the Dwarf has been doing? I did a similar thing, although I like playing, so I built 60 card decks out of the 12 packs. I'll talk more about it Monday.
