There. Happy now?
on Apr 26, 2009 at 8:06 pm
No. No I am not.
on Apr 26, 2009 at 8:22 pm
Um, NO I am not happy, I demanded more wax people things!
There are so many possibilities!! Wax Werner Klemperer! Wax Sinatra! Wax Jesse L. Martin! How could anyone possibly be done with THAT?
That reminds me, I’m out of candles…
on Apr 26, 2009 at 8:26 pm
typical marketing ploy. fortunately for me the only things I want are wallace and gromit figureines. and they look GOOD in wax. edwards looks much too disturbing…
on Apr 26, 2009 at 8:39 pm
You’re a cruel man, Bill Corbett.
Anyway, he might as well be made of wax, what with all the “pale white and ice cold.” (Pale white? PALE WHITE? Talk English, girl!!)
on Apr 26, 2009 at 8:40 pm
A wax Edward could be made to work. Just include a wick, and you’ve got a nice sparkly candle.
on Apr 26, 2009 at 8:40 pm
No, I am not. Wax melts easier than plastic.
on Apr 26, 2009 at 9:23 pm
No. I am not. Even if it sparkles in the sunlight, I would not be happy. In fact it would make me even LESS happy.
on Apr 26, 2009 at 9:29 pm
What about was farm animals? Wax insects? Wax fetal deformities and abnormal conditions? Waxen acting does not count!
on Apr 26, 2009 at 9:45 pm
Yeah, you can’t leave us with wax Hitler. How can you look fondly back on an obsession that ended with wax Hitler?
on Apr 26, 2009 at 9:49 pm
Hey, it’ll still burn, right?
on Apr 26, 2009 at 9:50 pm
Wax Hitler and wax Jay Leno are still not as scary as the fact that Edward warrants his own doll.
on Apr 26, 2009 at 9:54 pm
And melting plastic usually gives off very strong (sometimes toxic) fumes, although there is probably some debate over what a melting wax Hitler would smell like.
on Apr 27, 2009 at 12:27 am
At last! I can get one of these Edward figures and make him do epic battle against my Shia Labeouf figure to determine who the least talented actor on the planet is!
on Apr 27, 2009 at 12:46 am
Only if it’s airtight and he runs out of oxygen.
on Apr 27, 2009 at 12:53 am
They should have included the Choking Hazard label with the DVD release.
on Apr 27, 2009 at 12:58 am
Well, why do you suppose they sell George Foreman Grills?
on Apr 27, 2009 at 3:05 am
Where are his scissor hands?
on Apr 27, 2009 at 4:02 am
And what’s with that giant belt buckle? He’s too young and slight to be a professional wrestler.
on Apr 27, 2009 at 5:13 am
Wow! That guy is tiny….. I’m talking Tom Cruise tiny.
on Apr 27, 2009 at 5:23 am
hey! make a youtube video of it burning and I am positive it will become extremely viral!
on Apr 27, 2009 at 5:36 am
James Franco is Edward?
on Apr 27, 2009 at 6:13 am
So how many prepubescent girls with black fingernail polish are going to be frantically searching eBay for that cupboard from THE INDIAN IN THE CUPBOARD?
on Apr 27, 2009 at 6:46 am
I was going to say that the warning label should be reworded to read, “Gagging Hazard,” but I like yours better.
on Apr 27, 2009 at 6:46 am
so, is the new obsession blister packed action figures?
on Apr 27, 2009 at 6:52 am
Bill can’t be finished. No one’s made any “wax on, wax off” jokes yet.
Well, if they did, I missed them…
on Apr 27, 2009 at 7:43 am
Yes, but he IS made of wood
on Apr 27, 2009 at 8:11 am
Yes, on “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” I learned that melting plastic produces dioxin. It’s an educational show, really.

Dip it in glitter glue first.
on Apr 27, 2009 at 8:26 am
So he floats? does that mean if he weighs the same as a duck… he’s a… witc… vampire?
on Apr 27, 2009 at 9:41 am
AND….Can you use a wooden stake on a wooden vampire?

on Apr 27, 2009 at 10:46 am
Why is there such a thin line between what a person looks like, and what a soul-less abomination trying to take human form looks like? Because if you were trying to describe these things, you couldn’t define what it is that makes the wax mannequins so nightmarish…
on Apr 27, 2009 at 11:34 am
If Stephenie Meyer didn’t specify that he’s pale white, readers might assume he’s dark white!
on Apr 27, 2009 at 12:43 pm
WHY WOULD THAT MAKE ME HAPPY?
on Apr 27, 2009 at 1:08 pm
Just ordered 200 of these babies.
Figure I can sell them for 500-600$ in a couple of years make myself a nice profit! (200 x 600 = 120,000$…or is that 1,200,000$?!?! …no matter… either way I’M RICH!)
Thanks Bill! You rock!
on Apr 27, 2009 at 1:20 pm
THAT’s what kids’ toys look like these days? Note to self: Never have kids.
And I even liked to book. It’s going to take ages to suppress the memories of the movie and this toy, so I can actually read it again!
on Apr 27, 2009 at 1:23 pm
I think it’s the eyes. The rest of the figures look human, but the eyes are completely devoid of life.
on Apr 27, 2009 at 1:25 pm
Set the stake on fire first and it should be okay.
on Apr 27, 2009 at 1:26 pm
I concur. More wax!
on Apr 27, 2009 at 1:28 pm
Well, an entire film crew and obviously a bunch of toy-makers just got it wrong, so it just goes to show.
on Apr 27, 2009 at 1:55 pm
No…that is more disterbing than anything in wax.
on Apr 27, 2009 at 2:07 pm
I have yet to see the movie, but I’m assuming the shield that comes with it is supposed to be used to beat away the fangirls and fan-moms and fan-creepy middleaged men.
on Apr 27, 2009 at 3:03 pm
“Bill can’t be finished. No one’s made any “wax on, wax off” jokes yet.
Well, if they did, I missed them…”
50% true. Scroll down to the last line of this:
on Apr 27, 2009 at 3:17 pm
Perhaps I could meltdown all of the Twilight action figures and fashion them into a nice fruit bowl.
on Apr 27, 2009 at 3:47 pm
Well, still, Bill, more wax.
on Apr 27, 2009 at 3:48 pm
Might as well get some good karma out of melting them – how about recycling containers?
on Apr 27, 2009 at 4:41 pm
The funny thing is that when I got to the Jonas Brothers wax figures I was wondering why they had two wax figures of each brother. It took me quite a while to figure out that the ones on the left were the REAL Jonas Brothers (I think).
on Apr 27, 2009 at 6:13 pm
Margoo – I am so glad that I’m not the only one who did that. Except I just thought there were more Jonas Brothers than I thought there were, it took me an extra step to realize that there were three sets of two. I only marginally pay attention to their existence so I guess that’s my excuse

THAT IS THE DOLL OF A KILLER!!
on Apr 28, 2009 at 4:21 am
Only see it riffed, or there’s a good chance you won’t make it through the whole thing without losing your latest meal.
The badge or shield or whatever I don’t get at all. What does it come from, anyway?
on Apr 28, 2009 at 4:22 am
Aren’t toys usually made from the really, really bad and toxic and/or poisonous kind of plastic?
on Apr 28, 2009 at 4:45 am
When did K.D. Lang get an action figure?
on Apr 28, 2009 at 5:09 am
I occur too! More wax!
What’s the point of having a blog if you’re not gonna talk wax stuff!?
on Apr 28, 2009 at 5:26 am
Take an action figure of Christopher Eccleston’s Doctor Who and repaint and remove head
Put on stupid head
on Apr 28, 2009 at 6:01 am
I told you I missed it.
Would it be totally obvious of me to implore you to “wax on?”
on Apr 28, 2009 at 6:04 am
Yep – but melted plastic can also somehow miraculously be made into fleece. See my above post on dioxin.
on May 5, 2009 at 9:20 am
With it over we can wax poetically about the times we had …
