Must Buy: J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Figure Including Slusho Drink
I don't know how nerdy everyone else is, but I've dreamt of one day getting a Bad Robot figure. I honestly thought they were mythically rare, like something only employees had, but not anymore. Collider linked us to product listing on Entertainment Earth for an awesome 10" tall Bad Robot solid polystone collectible statue, sculpted directly from the original model. There are only 1,000 of these 'lil guys being made and you can pre-order them right now on Entertainment Earth - it says they'll start shipping in January 2011. And it includes a Slusho drink that fits in his hand! Uh yea, I think I'm ordering about four of these guys. You?
"The adorable mascot for J.J. Abram's production company, Bad Robot!" Offered to the public for the first time, this mischievous mascot of Bad Robot Productions stands 10-inches tall and is cast in solid polystone. As a special bonus, the statue includes the Slusho! modular arm - bet your Robot can't drink just six! Each Bad Robot maquette is individually numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Order one today! Each one only costs $89.99, but I feel like that's a bargain compared to some of the prices on Sideshow. The statue was made by Quantum Mechanix and it looks awesome. We all know how he sounds: "bad wobot!"

I was sad that I missed out on the limited edition Inception briefcase Blu-ray. (I refuse to pay over $100 for it on eBay, knowing it originally sold for half that.) This more than makes up for that in this collector's eye. Thanks for the heads-up, Alex.

Heads-up to anyone interested: you can also order it directly from Quantum Mechanix (link at the end of the article), and it ships sooner (December 28th instead of "January 2011") AND cheaper ($8.10 instead of $14.45 [your mileage will vary]). I don't know about you, but if everything happened sooner and cheaper, Tron: Legacy would have been a pretty bad direct-to-VHS sequel. In this case, though, sooner and cheaper is good.

Speaking of Slusho, is there a Cloverfield 2 in the works?

I just got mine in the mail today, it's such an awesome figure. A LOT heavier than I expected, very high quality.
