File this under: "Damned Cool."

I received a package from Dark Horse today that was suspiciously light. At first I thought it was comp copies for the Myspace DHP book, but it didn't seem to weigh enough. Well, after I opened it, I found that it contained a couple of packs of action figures. This really made me scratch my head. But after I really looked at it, it all made sense.

Apparently Hasbro have made a two pack featuring versions of Leia and Vader as featured in the Infinities series I wrote. Here are a couple of product shots:

And here's an image showing what Vader looked like in the comic:

That image was drawn by Ryan Benjamin and it is, of course, copyright Lucasfilm.

And while I'm at it, here's a cool image I found of a Star Wars cosplayer dressed as the Infinities Vader:

It makes me unreasonably happy to have action figures based on something I wrote. It's probably dumb, but I feel like I've just attained a dream I never knew I had.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got a date with some action figures!

This is so cool! Although the coolest part was watching you realize what was in the package. Priceless.
