i’m gonna frickin
Snuggle up, boys.
Behold! The glorious result of my impulse spending!
So on top of free comic book day, they were also doing a buy 2 get one free sale off the entire store. Since I like supporting my local shop, I figured I’d buy some of the lead figures I’ve always wanted. Still I was browsing the store and I passed their statue case, like I do every time, and I saw it.
The Hawkeye bust caught my eye immediately and it even comes with interchangeable arrows that look like some from that old illustration about his different arrows! I kept staring at it and I knew I would regret not getting it. The guys working there have started to recognize me so we talked while I thought it over and eventually I decided to get it. As he was packing it up, I realized, all the arrows are real, variation of the same five but all very much real and individual.
After that he tracked down the Booster Gold figure for me and I lamented that he didn’t have Ted Kord. In spite of how busy it was, he took the time to double check and found him for me.
It was just such a good experience overall. I talked with this little girl who admired Storm, a Stephanie Brown fan, and a father who brought his young son with him. It wasn’t what I thought I’d get but it was definitely worth it.
Those arrows are fantastic. I think that one on the far left is a putty arrow? Either way, so cool.
I tried to find a comic where someone else got these same figurines, but I can’t locate it on any of the 21 pages of my Boostle tag. :C
loool ‘kitty numero uno’
his facial expression kills me
Ted has the most constant eye for the ladies. Like, there is always time to chat up a pretty one. Even when fighting multiple giant mutated jaguars.
Any storyline where Ted Kord is the only man who can save the day is a winner in my books.
WHAT. WHY HAVE I NEVER HEARD OF THIS STORYLINE?
Also, why does he look like Clark Kent?
“It all seems to be the favorite activity of late twentieth century mankind.”

Okay, that’s some cute internal monologue there. THEY ARE FRIENDS! :D
I am tagging this Ted Kord and you can’t stop me.
Nice of Babs to give him the benefit of the doubt, right?
Nothing wrong with the sentiment, but your timing couldn’t be worse, Ted.

She’s mad at him because she thinks that he’s the person who tricked her into letting loose Guy Gardner’s superhuman alien clone.
Yes, you read that right.
