Stuff: What I should have asked for this Christmas.

More proof that there's a horrible conspiracy afoot to ensure that the youth get all the neatest stuff - leaving adults nothing to play with except tax forms and spider derns.

Archie McPhee's fan-toy-bular site of funtastic random stuff comes perhaps the greatest battle ever staged between small, easily lost plastic figurines.

Ghouls and gals, I give you . . . Frogmen vs. Radioactive Octopus!

Though I want the octopus to win, smart money is on the frogmen. There are 12 of them, so even if the octopus gets each of its tentacles around one of these tricky bastards, there are still four frogmen free to torment it. Unless, of course, radioactivity has given the octopus the ability to shoot deathrays from its eyes or something. Then all bets are off.
