Egypt, Egypt Everywhere, pt. 9,734

A reader sent in this pic- a Playmobil display for their new (and quite well-researched) Egyptian playset. Check out the big Anubis there, that's a bit unusual. It'd be pretty cool if one of the sets came with a flying saucer.

Porky Pig and Daffy Duck bring their wacky hijinks to the ancient world on this cover for an upcoming adventure of Looney Tunes Adventures. That Daffy, I bet that madcap mallard has something screwy up his sleeve!

Now even toddlers can get in on the robotic thrills and spills with this special Mr. Potato Head from the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen toy line. This reminds of a comic book idea I once had- it was called "Bagboy and Spud"- it was about a teenage grocery clerk whose best friend was a potato from outer space. Well, what are you waiting for, Hollywood?
