Beastie Boys Action Figures (video)

Poor planning on my part means this video clocks in at just under 25 minutes. It's a little fumbling in parts and this is the first time I had to edit clips filmed out of sequence, but I still think it is entertaining and hope you will enjoy it.

If you've got the cash, you can order your own set here.

I love that I seem horribly embarrassed by the fact that I still own Barbie and Ken, but not at all bothered by the other toys.

As promised, this is the video directed by Spike Jonze featuring these action figures:

The alternate outfits here make me think there is a way to change them, but of course they could have just had special dolls made for it, so who knows. If they are changeable and they sold these outfits, I would probably buy them too.

And these are the two charities you can make a donation to if you don't have enough for the actual figures:
Pablove Foundation
Alex's Lemonade Stand

Also, since I seem to have a knack for uploading these to Youtube shortly before I go to bed and then posting them on here in the morning, you can watch these before anyone else by subscribing to angie462 over there.

    ROFL!!! Why did you put Mr. Dollar Store in Barbie's bikini bottom???

    Another LOL for turning your Barbies into Beastie Boys groupies. Not all Barbies are so lucky, though! =P

    Did you ever have a Jem doll? I remember a collector saying she was frustrated as a girl by the Jem dolls being too big to exist in the same world as her Barbie dolls. Later, as an adult, she realised it was Hasbro-Sunbow's way of making sure you bought more than one doll: if your one Jem doll could play with a Barbie, you'd probably only get one of the former; but if she couldn't, you'd have to get another Jem doll to keep her company. Not a cool hardball tactic, if you ask me.

    And Remy is beautiful! =D When you picked him up and nuzzled him, you made me wish I had a cat just like him . . . and I'm not even a cat person!

  2. This is a complete and utter guess here... but perhaps I wanted to match that top he's wearing? They both have pink in them, at least. I'm pretty sure those are Barbie jeans too.. he's built pretty wildly different from Ken.

    I didn't have any Jem dolls, and I think their larger size was part of what turned me off from them. Not being able to switch clothes between them would have frustrated me. I think 70% of the time I spent playing with Barbie was spent changing their outfits. Though I guess I would have improvised like I did with Mr. Dollar Store. :)

    Remy is my favorite baby. I suppose a mother isn't supposed to show favoritism, but what can I say, he's shy and quirky like me so I can't help but be attached!
