I particularly like this one for Saint Joan. Gallery. Via.

Flickr link. Via. How often is the older design better than the new design - - 95% of the time?
None available at eBay right now, although they do have Skippy the Propellerized Robot Dog, from the Tick.
More photos here. Will be sold at the Tokyo National Museum.
Man, Bearbricks are the worst designer toy platform. Every good design succeeds despite the Bearbrick shape, not because of it.
*Buy Bearbricks at eBay.

A few days ago a post appeared on the Something Awful forums noting a curious website called Notes to Mary. The notes are a series of threatening letters from a high schooler named Robert to his crush, Mary. The goons figured out pretty quickly that they had an ARG on their hands and went to work on solving the puzzle. Several other forums picked up on the game. Robert began interacting with players, sending them strange messages and several series of numbers that appeared to be some sort of code. A Flickr pool was started. Players even created an IRC channel to swap clues and information in real time. The Notes to Mary site offered a link to a login. All effort was made to crack the user/pass combo. Finally, several days after the game began, users were finally able to log in. The game was solved. The players would be rewarded for their hard work. Where did the login lead? Here.

Sounds like a story from the Onion, but it's true, Daunte Culpepper did real well in a Madden football game, playing as himself.
