This is why I’ll never be an adult.

Move over Legos. Get outta town Minifigs. There a new block on the, umm, block. Blammoids!

Did DC Direct make these just for me? I love DC and I love all things adorable so it’s guaranteed I’ll be buying these puffed-up little fellows. Sinestro’s mustache! Firestorm’s flame! Aquaman’s complete lack of eyes!! (Click on the images to view large)

Here’s the publicity description:

Kick off 2010 with a powerful and cute new look for your favorite DC Comics heroes – BATMAN, GREEN LANTERN, AQUAMAN – and more. Blammoids, a new wave of boldly designed toys from the team at DC DIRECT are unlike anything you’ve experienced before, but you’ll definitely want to experience them again. A striking, energetic and kinetic take on the heroes you hold dear, how could you not want to collect them all? They bounce. They BOOM. They’re collectible. They’re Blammoids. They’re fun.

While I don’t appreciate them telling us they’re fun (I can figure that on my own thank you), I am looking forward to what other characters they decide to use. I’d imagine the females are going to look very busty unless they do a completely different look for them like larger bottoms. Wait…that’s not good either.

    OMG, the cuteness … too … MUCH! XD

    I feel this scene from Angel’s “Smile Time” accurately sums up how I feel:

    “Oh my God, you’re so … cute!” “Fred!” “I’m sorry, it’s just … the little hands!”

  3. Don’t hold back Eric, tell us how you REALLY feel about them. :)

    CCCC–RRR–AAAA–PPPPPP. My opinion.



    All these “toys” with “different and unique” looks–crap, crap, crap, crap.

    I am NOT an action figure collector but good grief…seriously?

    I appreciate artistic expressions, as I am an amateur artist, but seriously……crap, crap, crap.

    Did I mention these look like crap?

    Crap–craptastic–flamboyantly crapola shit on a shingle servings of crap sandwiches. *ugh*

    That Firestorm one is the best with that little wisp of flame shooting out from his head.

  6. Yeah, Supes totally put the smackdown on Luthor! That’s why he’s not standing up either.

    What do you mean there’s no reasonable explanation for a triangle bum?? Haven’t you ever watched Looney Toons? I’m sure it’s happened to Wile E. Coyote at least once…

    I think Supes ripped Luthor’s arm off.

    If they keep the triangular chests for the ladies, it’s going to be like all the DCU women have reverted to wearing those cone bras from the 20s. Poor girls.

    If they decide to go with big bottoms, I hope those aren’t triangular. At least the triangle chest kind of makes anatomical sense. There’s no reasonable explanation for a triangle bum.

    “Oh, I just decided to wear my 1920s cone bra as underwear today. No biggie.”

  8. Why is the arm broken off of the one in the picture with Superman? Well, it looks broken to me anyway.
