This is my first post since breaking free of MySpace. Won't be too epic, but I figured I'd throw up some nice looking pics that I'm stealing from TomoPop.
Working for a video game allows one to become intimately familiar with the subtle differences between one nerd sub group and the next.
For instance there is a certain type of nerd who adorns his desk with plaster busts like this:
Of course this type of nerd will also have certain busts that are literally "busts":
Related to this group are the nerds who like to have full on statues on thier desk...which is cool but lack the interactive flavor that I like:
No, I'm more of an action figure guy. Which is kind of wierd since I usually never take my action figures out of the packaging...but I like the fact that they are at least functionally entertaining in some way...even if I still display them exactly as I would if I were a stature / bust nerd.
It helps that actions figures have advanced to the point that most collectible action figures are basically poseable statues:
So I don't know how I feel about the Ghost in the Shell statue that TomoPop posted pics up. I'd get it, but I don't like what having it on my desk would say about the kind of nerd I am. Still take a look and decide for yourselves:
See if that was an action figure, I'd have no problem putting it on my desk. But as a statue...it just feels a little too nerdy, even for me.
