Have you ever heard of Minimates? These things are adorable. They make the Lego action figures look like crap. Oh wait, they always looked that way.
The company has licenses from all kinds of games, comics, and movies (Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, Spider-Man). I browsed their site and had a blast checking out all the iterations they came up with for different franchise characters. I think the Ghostbusters might be one of my favorites though. Check it out and be sure to browse their site too ... you might find something even higher on the awesome scale.
