Blue, unfortunately, but thatís easily corrected.

I was pondering painting them black when they were announced as well. I got into a discussion on a Funko board over the blue/black issue, and they finally conceded my point when I asked what color Superman's hair should be.

You must have fallen in with a hip crowd. Iíve been asked why everyone doesnít know Superman and Clark are the same guy since they both have blue hair.

Mr. Byrne - it's the glasses. They distract his friends from the hair color.

Yet I don't recall anyone ever commenting on Lois' blue hair.

Superman's "blue hair" became one of the ways ennui-engorged fanboys could distance themselves from their addiction. "Oh, look! I'm so superior to these silly comics! See how I mock Superman's blue hair!"

feh!

Another online catalog from Skulls International. This is the site from which I purchased a real human skull a few Xmases back. They're offering more of same, and, like before, labeling each as "One of a Kind".

Errrr........

I read that as "Skrulls International" at first. Don't trust those guys!

Pricey, but you can now own an articulated replica of the giant Ohmu insect from Hayao Miyazaki's Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind:

HLJ Link

It's certainly large enough to intimidate my S.H. MonsterArts figures...

Sigh. I managed to restore Kirbyís original version of Galactusí eyes, but they were immediately colored incorrectly, and that error has been perpetuated ever since.

(I will never understand the ubiquitous, worldwide POPS! phenomenon.  They're cute and all, I suppose, but I just don't get why these things, of all toys or collectibles, have caught fire with diehards and the general public alike.  In some stores, there are full walls of these little guys!  Seriously, what is the appeal???)

Likewise Shaun. Iím even more baffled by the shops that have those walls. Multiply those figures by the individual cost & those walls become ridiculously expensive real estate.

POPS, for all their cartooniness, tend to be faithful representations of the classic characters. Look at the Fantastic Four, above. When did we last see THOSE GUYS in the comics?
