Yesterday on Facebook

This actually happened. Some parts are rearranged to make a more coherent story.


Salem MacGourley:
So I have this action figure of Bellatrix LeStrange. I'm not a Harry Potter fan, and in fact have not even seen the film that she's in, but she's a totally badass representation of Helena Bonham Carter, and I have a weakness for Helena Bonham Carter.

I hate that the figure is not very posable (waist swivel, severely limited ball joint neck, thigh swivels), but the worst part of this is that there is virtually NO pose she can hold that she won't fall over immediately.

I'm seriously about to take a box cutter to this woman's boots.


Katrina Roets:
I read that as boobs and thought wow, is she that top heavy?


Salem MacGourley:
She's rather realistically proportioned, which is a refreshing change in action figure sculpting. Just one of the legs is molded at such an angle that the boots are unbalanced, and her skirts aren't long enough to balance the figure and it's driving me to irrational levels of frustration.

These boots are awesome, but they were sculpted wrong. The heel on the right boot is too short, putting her forever off balance. Part of this boot is coming off.


Erin Palette:
You need something no-nonsense to keep her upright. I'm talking a Serious Block.


Salem MacGourley:
...there's a joke in there that I'm in the wrong fandom to get, isn't there?


Erin Palette:
:D


Katrina Roets:
Erin - Are you thinking something control top? (I know, probably the wrong reference but that's what no-nonsense made me think of.)


Erin Palette:
Sigh. You people.




Salem MacGourley:
Yep. That's HBC. Nobody does crazy eyes like HBC. Also, I think I get that joke, now.


Erin Palette:
What's funny, at least to me, is that there are more than a few times in that clip where HBC reminds me of Geena Davis.


Salem MacGourley:
Geena Davis busted out some pretty impressive crazy eyes from time to time, but I'll always remember her from The Long Kiss Goodnight.




Katrina Roets:
It's time for bed. I just sat here wondering what the heck an HBC was and why it sounded like a bank. Brain obviously stopped functioning..have fun shaving her foot. G'night you two. :)


Erin Palette:
Gee thanks Katrina, now I'm stuck wondering what HBC would look like as a Hobbit...


Salem MacGourley:
Actually, I misread it in my head as HBK once or twice and wondered why we had strayed into a Professional Wrestling thread.


Katrina Roets:
ahahahaha...Okay, I'm going to try to walk upstairs to bed now without falling down because I can't stop giggling at the thought of HBC being a hobbit pro-wrestler.


Salem MacGourley:
A Hobbit pro-wrestler with a Wizard gimmick!


Erin Palette:
This has become exceptionally kinky and therefore you now have my undivided attention. Mostly because I'm envisioning hobbit HBC wrestling Geena Davis.


Salem MacGourley:
That doesn't strike me as terribly fair, Geena Davis is at least six feet tall.


Erin Palette:
Worse, I'm imagining her as her Cutthroat Island character.




Salem MacGourley:
PIRATE Geena Davis vs Wizard midget HBC is the main event.


Erin Palette:
It's basically a distaff version of Willow, innit?


You do not know how sad I am that I wasn't able to say "She's hobbit-forming" or a similar pun.
