Please let the record show that I am officially hiring Absolook Interior Design to do my home. Granted I don’t have money to purchase said home nor even pay Absolook for their future tireless efforts towards the realization of my geeky fantasies, but I have every confidence that they will set me up with a monthly payment plan that may very well need to last through the entirety of my life.
These truly gifted creators have designed an Avengers Themed House in Singapore! <insert high-pitched fangirl squeal> Not only does it pay proper tribute to Marvel’s Movie Franchise, it does so flawlessly. This is not some corny house adorned with random Avenger’s posters and memorablia. This is a fully-realized and perfectly executed concept.
I am especially tickled by their placement of The Incredible Hulk in the kitchen area. I can’t say this was done on purpose, but where else but the kitchen would you put the reckless gargantuan? You can almost see him barreling through the pots and pans while rummaging through the pantry. Do I even need to point out the genius of having Iron Man plastered through the bedroom? Billionaire Genius Playboy? You just know Tony Stark would waste no time in bringing a few bunnies to his boudoir and letting them polish his plasma cannon.
Now I just have to somehow amass say a couple million dollars or so and I’ll be set. I wonder if I can use Kickstarter for that? Hmmmmm….
In the event you couldn’t glean the fact that I habitually stalk all remotely comic book-related news (especially those with franchises starting with the letter X), let me clarify it for you:
“I habitually stalk comic book related news.”
There. I’m glad we settled that.
In the interest of my news-stalking, allow me to present exhibit X, Bryan Singer’s Instagram feed; which lately has been practically oozing tidbits of the upcoming X-Men movie, due out May 27, 2016. I know, right? I can barely contain myself as I X out the days on my calendar in anticipation of the 3rd chapter in the X-Men First Class series. Which reminds me, I need to buy more red sharpies.
Bryan’s latest post sent ice-cold chills down my spine because of what I saw: Angel, strapped and tied down as circus attendants gawk at his impressive wings.
Given that the next installment of the series is titled X-Men Apocalypse, any devoted followers to the Children of the Atom, MUST realize that this could very well signal the birth of Archangel.
Allow me to also point out the Ben Hardy, known for his work on EastEnders, was recently cast in a “key role” in the upcoming X-Movie. Just TRY to tell me that guy doesn’t just scream Warren Worthington III?!?!? Also? WOOF!
We all know from the end of the last movie, that Apocalypose’s horsemen were featured in the way, way, waaaaaaaaay background, so that can only mean he intends to give rise to DEATH (a.k.a. Archangel). I am tickled Pink, Purple and Chartreuse at the sheer speculation of this. I may be grasping for straws here but DAMN IT, these straws require rigorous amounts of grasping!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to read old issues of X-Factor and the debut of Apocalypse and his Four Horsement so I can make unfair comparisons when the movie is released…
… don’t judge me!
I? AM! LIVING for these newly developed Funko Pop Figures! Cute never looked so dangerous with the possible exception of Jigglypuff and that damned song of his. Do NOT fall asleep at a Jigglypuff concert. He will cut a bitch.
Poke-tangent aside, I may need to break my initial ruling of only collecting World of Warcraft inspired Funko Pop merchandise and graduate to these. Given my background, it seems weird that I wouldn’t be collecting their Superhero Figures from day one but it’s purely a question of economy. There may be literally hundreds of Marvel, DC, etc heroes and villains that could be immortalized as these compact cuties, but I have only one bank account; a tiny, rapidly deteriorating, nearly-broke, bank account.
For those of you that would like to contribute to the cause of resuscitating my checking account, please send me copious amounts of money. Together, we can work towards bringing my funds out of extinction.
WHO’S WITH ME?!?..
… no? No takers? Really?
