Could it be that there is a yet undiscovered mythical race of oranges?

After I wrote it I thought, oh hey John Boehner.

In college I had a physics professor who was an old skinny dude with gray hair.
He seemed very reserved, quiet, nerdy.
One monday morning he shows up with his hair dyed totally black. Like a fuzzy black hole had landed on his head.
Delayed midlife crisis maybe.

Or it might be an intellectual joke referencing a famous lesbian novel, "Oranges are not the only Fruit" by Jeanette Winterson.

Yes, I imagine a lesbian would be more in favour of eating a peach than a cucumber.

Question:

Just saw this set at Target the other day and was wondering if anyone has picked it up yet. I've been thinking about getting it just for the useful parts in it, so if someone has it already, how is it?

Looks, pretty good, but those rigid legs are a turn off.

I like it; good build, you can store every part on the robot build; The truck looks like something you can easily mod to become minifig-compatible. I think it's better than the jet-robot box.

Did any one mention the Lone Ranger sets yet. It uses a lot of the original western pieces. I think they are redesigning the revolvers.

Yeah they did redesign the revolvers. I'm going to be getting a set or two for my army.
