Sam & Max Toys Are…Uh…Here


Sorry to get your hopes up, people. I promise you, no one was more excited than I was when I saw the headline over at Action-Figure about my long, long-awaited Sam & Max toys, and no one was more hurt and confused when I saw these…things. Now, I don’t really begrudge Symbiote Studios?who are also making a regular looking Sam & Max statue, by the way?from making Mighty Muggs-style Sam and Max (they even say they’re the same scale), but man…I really want a Sam and Max action figure set with guns and rats and a Glazed McGuffin and paper bag-space helmets and all that stuff. Still, the pair is only $20 when you pre-order ’em over at Symbiote, which is a great deal.

But isn’t action figures.
