NECA, I love you. But please stop it.

The Wizard of Oz variation was funny. But I think you drew the wrong lesson from it. The whole point of the original leg lamp was that is woefully uncool, horribly dated/sexist, and a poor substitute for a Christmas bonus decent sweepstakes prize.

Look, if you can do a realistic full-body scan of Henry Cavill or Ben Affleck's leg, I think then I might know a lady or two who'll buy. Until then, it's missing the point - understandably, in a PC way, but still - not to have Wonder Woman in on this action. It would truly represent the way DC seems to see her, too - a great leg for display only. Too self-conscious?

NECA, if you milk this too much more - I'm starting to have waking nightmares that Burt Ward's leg is next - you WILL make me want to shoot my eyes out.
