Sigh. I managed to restore Kirbyís original version of Galactusí eyes, but they were immediately colored incorrectly, and that error has been perpetuated ever since.

(I will never understand the ubiquitous, worldwide POPS! phenomenon.  They're cute and all, I suppose, but I just don't get why these things, of all toys or collectibles, have caught fire with diehards and the general public alike.  In some stores, there are full walls of these little guys!  Seriously, what is the appeal???)

Likewise Shaun. Iím even more baffled by the shops that have those walls. Multiply those figures by the individual cost & those walls become ridiculously expensive real estate.

POPS, for all their cartooniness, tend to be faithful representations of the classic characters. Look at the Fantastic Four, above. When did we last see THOSE GUYS in the comics?

That is a very good point that I had not considered. & may be part of the attraction.

All well and good, but... those button eyes!  Some have 'em , some don't... some don't have mouths, some do...

Bah.  I just don't get it.  They kind of weird-me out.
