May 092009 HungoverThe fine and rather sarcastic folks over at must have been hungover when they reviewed the Spock action figure on their site.

Take a look at the picture to the right. As you can see they are clearly talking about the NEW Spock action figures from Playmates Toys, but are comparing it to Leonard Nimoy as Spock. So of course the photo of the actual person isn’t going to look ANYTHING like the action figure and vice versa.

Perhaps as a pop culture site they are so out of touch with reality that they don’t really know what is going on in the world of pop culture any more? Have they had their collective heads in the sand for the past year? Do they not know that their is a NEW Star Trek movie with a whole new cast? Spock is now played by Zachary Quinto (Sylar from Heroes).

Now with that new knowledge people, try your little review again. Your two main complaints about the figure seem a perfect match when compared to the correct actor.

Quinto as Spock Quinto Toy vs Nimoy Spock

I would say the toy is pretty close, not dead on, but pretty dang close to Quinto (but certainly not Nimoy). And I’m the slacker here 🙂

  1. this post is lame. the action figure looks more like spock than quinto so your argument makes even less sense. plus pophangover is funny so who gives a sh**.

  2. Hey everyone has a right to their opinion, but when they are making a blatant error like this one it has to be pointed out. Yeah their site is kind of funny, but you, like they, are still wrong. The action figure is of Zachary Quinto as SPOCK, NOT of Leonard Nimoy as Spock. So your saying it looks more like Spock than Quinto makes no sense as it IS Quinto as Spock. Now if they were comparing the right figure to the right actor then maybe it would have been funny, but not this time. This time it was just stupid.

    All I am saying is if you are going to make a joke about something maybe you should know what you are talking about….same goes for making comments on blogs.
