$49 from Etsy »

And the Minifig even looks exactly like Sigourney Weaver! OK, as much as I wanted the life-size Caterpillar Power Loader Dustin Kiska made, I find Ichiban Toys' LEGO version just as enticing and commendable in execution. Plus, at $39 instead of $1,600, it is slightly closer to my golden price range of $20. That means when I charm my mama into giving me $19 in a minute, I'll be mere clicks away...

That's, like, some psycho housewife shit. Some Kathy Bates in a secluded cabin in the woods. For Halloween, though, not so bad. The bloody handprints and bloody masses that look sort of like frayed ligaments and tendons are actually...
