Dr. Horrible and Captain Hammer Meet the 80′s

Once upon a time, in a decade called the 80′s, little girls played with little plastic ponies. Except me, but that is because I wanted GI Joes and Transformers and Star Wars toys. I cringed at typical “little girl” toys and had absolutely no interest in My Little Pony at all.

Until now. How can you resist Dr. Horrible and Captain Hammer? The prancing pony on the top of the car for Captain Hammer is absolutely perfect in my opinion and if I could, would be proud to add them to my desk collection. Check out the detail on his cargo pants!

Fandom never ceases to amaze me in it’s ingenuity and creativity. Just one question: where are Penny and the frozen yogurt to make this set complete?

My Little Ponies go geek

I wasn’t into Star Wars as a kid – I was all about My Little Pony and Barbie and all that critical mass girlie stuff. So a year or so ago, when I found a picture of Lord Pony, I was amazed and extremely covetous. (Alas, it is not to be.) Today, I found an amazing Alien pony, complete with step-by-step pictorial. Such an oddly compelling combination…

Other custom ponies of interest: Yoda, Spock, gargoyle, Borg, punk, and Masque of the Red Death (one of a series!)

Forget Transformers, LFL – here’s a crossover toy I would buy!
