My First Comic Book Crush...

...was Ms. Marvel. I had the very first issue and just thought- and still do- that she was the coolest- and hottest- female super hero around.

Sideshow Collectables- who make simply AMAZING props and statues that I really, really love- just released shots of their very first Ms. Marvel statue. Check it out:

Man, I think she looks so cool! The details, the color, the pose. Just great stuff! It's not her original outfit- which I love much more than this new one- but she still looks great!

Thing is, it's like $270 bucks which- to me- is too much to pay for something that's just going to sit on my shelf and probably get broken by my kids (or me and my clumsy ass self).  Plus I go thru phases where I take all my statues and trophies and toys and stuff and stick them in boxes in my garage. It's an energy sort of thing, like I just want my office clean of clutter (even cool clutter like this) so new ideas and new passions and new adventures can more easily flow into my life. This stuff is really cool but it almost feels like clinging to the past, you know?

Anyway- even with all that said- I still love this statue and if I see one at Comic Con this year for a good price, I may just pick her up.

Ok- later!
