You know what? Sand does suck. I know that given the chance to wield a lightsaber, I’d most likely use it to turn my nearest beach into a floor of glass. Sand sucks, something I learnt to a devastating degree that fateful day that I picked up New Age Gaming’s infamous Spec Ops: The Line issue and found myself covered in the coarse stuff.

At least I hope it was sand. That’s something that you’re going to want to keep away from the latest Hot Toys Star Wars figure, as you can bet that Groot Anakin Skywalker will go on a murderous rampage on your shelf. Also, he loves being on your shelf. After all, that’s where the high ground is. HIGH GROUND ANI! Here’s a look at the Anakin Skywalker figure, which is so amazing that it’s more lifelike than the actor it’s based on:

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
