Reboot - Orange Exoskeleton on Flickr.
Exoskeleton from the Reboot episode: “Cross Nodes”. This came with an AndrAIa figure already in the box. Reboot was the first CGI cartoon on Saturday morning television starting 1994.I have THREE of these! :D lol
A woman who doesn’t work here anymore brought this weird smurf toy into work a couple of months ago and set it on top of the computer because apparently her kids wouldn’t stop fighting over it and I hate it every day. It sits up there taunting me with its apparent lack of spine or any normal smurf anatomy. Anyway I found out a few weeks ago her kids are about 15-17 and now I’m certain this is a highly cursed object.
I don’t think I will ever be able to get over the limited 12” FLCL Canti figurines, especially this black Barracuda one designed by MAD. It’s perfect.
Does anyone serious work at Nintendo

LEGO has announced that they will produce a female scientist minifigure set!
After last year’s release of a single female scientist minifigure by LEGO, designer Alatariel Elensar submitted concepts for a full minifigure set of female scientists to the LEGO Ideas competition. This week, after more than ten thousand people voted for Elensar’s project, LEGO announced that they are putting the set into production for late summer 2014!!
The figures above (still concepts, not the final sets) are doing what female scientists do, devoid of pink, and full of awesome. As Maia Weinstock notes at Scientific American in her rundown of the LEGO project, toy companies have an enormous amount of power to determine what children think, helping them form their ideas about how the world is, and how it should be.
I’m proud of my favorite toy company for doing their part to inspire young minds. Sounds like we’ve got the perfect holiday gift idea, for young girls AND boys :)
Lego Ideas are the best ideas.
