GWS is, of course, not a “geek news” blog. If I’m ever topical, it’s by complete coincidence. My posts are usually about as timely as a FEMA first-response team.
But when I saw the news about the X-Men Origins: Wolverine workprint getting leaked to the Tubes of InterWeb yesterday, potentially gutting the film’s revenue when it opens next month, I knew I had to post this gutted Zombie Wolverine custom action figure by our German friend “OLJA1.”
The skull and right arm is taken from deadman dc kindom come. The other parts are made of rubber(?) and melt plastic. The claws are made of needles, after all I did the paint. And yes its a eyeball on the middle claw :)
Get it, people? It’s a metaphor. This Wolverine toy has been eviscerated, just as the movie will be. Yeah. Just… let it sink in. Feel that? That tingling sensation going up your spine? You’re experiencing the impact of a literary device in its purest, Shakespearean form. Fuggin’ ninja-level rhetoric is what that is.
Now excuse me while I return to my poetry journal. I have to think of something that rhymes with “smapple.”
