Lost action figures... with kung-fu grip!

LostOkay, maybe not with kung-fu grip. "Faces in perpetual states of shock, horror, and/or 'WTF'-ness" are more likely. Anyway, McFarlane Toys are coming out with a new line of Lost action figures of season one's "fan-favorites", Jack, Kate, Locke, Hurley, Charlie, and Shannon. They've just released a picture of the Charlie figure. He's sitting down, writing on his fingers. Hmm... Doesn't look very action-y. McFarlane Toys is also releasing boxsets, little dioramas that recreate key moments of the show. So, if you don't like the season finale, you can always film your own.

Maybe it's just me, but the choice of Shannon to be a part of the first set of "fan-favorite" toys comes as a bit of a surprise. If I had to go for one of the deadsies for this first set, I would have picked a Boone figure over a Shannon one. The fact that I found Boone attractive has nothing little to do with it. The toys are expected Fall of this year.

McFarlane is known for there excellent sculpts. While called "action figures", most of McFarlane's figures are actually plastic statues.

I assume that Shannon was chosen ecause most customers for this type of item are men.

Once again ABC and the show are pushing Matthew Fox and ignoring Josh Holloway. Their attempts to make him the star everyone wants to see is one of the reasons the show has slipped this year. It must be nice to have friends in high places when you can't gain popularity on your own.

So... The 'monster' action figure is just a sealed plastic bubble of truck exhaust? LAME.

:P
