I forget where on here it was posted, but last April Fool's, ThinkGeek had a "Tauntaun Sleeping Bag" as one of the gag products they were offering. People actually wanted it badly enough, though, that ThinkGeek ended up actually making one and having it as a prize in a contest.

That contest is now over with, HOWEVER... They now have it up for pre-order!!!! :happy4: So it's kind of funny that it was meant to be a gag item, but they have ended up producing it as an actual item due to the sheer amount of want for it. ;p Smart company, though... They listen to what their buyers want, and then give it to them. Not like some companies where they give you what they tell you you want. ;x:


And, for those who enjoy their Voltron: http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-apparel/unisex/popculture/c152/

Makes sense, given its popularity. ::3:

The Voltron shirt is still available. :P

Yep...they're very clever to rework the characters ever so slightly, so that you know who it's meant to be, but the design also has some originality to it. So it's more satire and less "Hey, it's those characters from Joe, but doing something weird!" Also, I like how he throws in other characters, like the wannabe Captain Planet villain (I think that's what the deal is with the "Smell-E" guy.)

Megatron in colors he wouldn't be caught dead in: (Animated test shot):

It actually looks really cool!

Yeah, that color scheme does... O_o: Looks like a totally different character, though, imo. I'd actually like to see Hasbro make a new character out of that... I know I will.

http://s90690880.onlinehome.us/jhiaxus/uscomics/jhiaxus.htm Have to say that I do prefer that Jhiaxus, over IDW's... IDW made him such a coward imo. ::\

We spied the first 2 when we were wandering about your gallery once, but it is nice to see that more has been done. :smile: We laugh a bit at how you brought Lucky Star into this at one point. ;p (Not directly, but you still made reference. :P )

What? Can't we refer to ourself in the 3rd person without others looking at us so strangely? Just be glad we're not the Queen Victoria who used to do that. :tongue:

Royalty is supposed to use the 'Royal We' they do it to this day.

Just found it amusing. Thought it might be a new permutation of the Gemini.

Well... We have to admit it does feel more... "Natural." Especiall with how we seem to be in constant conflict with ourself, so... Yeah. :laughing: But we think it's still something we have more or less decided to do that other Geminis would not do... :smile2::;:

Oh, and as far as Victoria goes... Our only experience with her is actually that of from the now dead (as all "Cliffhanger!" comics ended up as) comic series "Steampunk," in which she was not a Queen (at least in the traditional sense. Look through the list of main characters for "Victoria of Kent, Queen of Savages").

As far as pics of her go... Well... These are all we have of her (at current, at least):

-http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b70/Rikku-Anj/comic/Steampunk/ish13_resize.png (she's at the top)

Also put this image together at some point:
