A perfect fanboy moment

Little known 'round these parts is that my 7 year old nephew and I are huge Star Wars fans. I've been collecting the 3.75" figures since I was three, and we rip open the packages and play with them all the time. Lately the Clones have been trying to thwart Indiana Jones from rescuing an Ewok cub, but that's another story. Admiral Ackbar is one of my favourites for his infamous, "It's a trap!" line.

You know when something that feels made for you comes along? I went into Silver Snail recently and found this:

...trilobite shield and shoulder pads included.

That is RIDICULIOUSLY cool!

It totally was a trap though you realize...

There's no way your willpower can deflect coolness of that magnitude!

I agree. It's coolness was fully operational.

leslie said...

So you bought one or two, right?
Three?

Glendon Mellow: The Flying Trilobite said...

No Leslie, just one. Just one representing awesomeness.

Mimi said...

this is really cool.

I saw that at Fred Meyer yesterday and thought of you, brother. Now you have to draw two trilobites having a lightsaber fight. No, seriously, you do.

Glendon Mellow: The Flying Trilobite said...

I thought so, Mimi. And thanks for checking in here! *beaming*

Zach, do I have to really? I was going to put a poll on here abut what pop-culture image would people like to see me paint: a superhero, toy or Star Wars character...

Maybe trilobites with lightsabers would work. Hmmm...

leslie said...

I told you to buy two...three :)

Glendon Mellow: The Flying Trilobite said...

Oh! Leslie, I'm such a dork.

Of course.

Three.

leslie said...

And then those three can become the commanders of the army of millions of trilobites you will organize...
(that would be 'more than three')
