So I guess this is what all the molds are for.

I'm guessing the Unicorn was bronis Guy's idea?

Also, someone with more painting skill than me should probably re-paint the squid head as Zoidberg.

Oh yeah, another Squidhead for the Dominion. ^_^ I'm liking the fencer and unicorn, too.

You guys are wrong. It's all about the hot dog and Burger King.

From the fencing mask to the unicorn to the python to the royal cape to the fallout-esque figure to the printed tiled samurai armour to the saw to the egyptian shield to the platform shoes to the goblin to the hotdog man to that guy's beard, there isn't really anything here that I don't think I would pay the £1.99 for. My favourite is the lime-green ninja is by far my favourite though.

Which one is the fallout-esque figure?

Also, calling Ming that guy?

The chap with the double pistols, perhaps I have an unusual impression of what fallout costumes look like, although I certainly had no idea who Ming is, he just reminds me of the baddie from the Johnny Plunder reboot.

I take it Fallout was the first time you saw sci-fi power armour?

No... certainly not, I always make sure I buy every game and film with power armour in it, and frequently walk around town wearing my favourite set of telekevlar.

Yes. It was.

I thought it was a new color for the old Space Marine armor, but on closer look it looks like something new. I wonder if it has shoulder armor or not.

I'm pretty sure it's already in LDD and has weird wingy shoulder pads.
