    Dear god! not so close to the kiddies you crazy muscle man!

  2. Gero says:

    Jeff, you have to use this picture on here somewhere:

    It’s “art” by Erwin Wurm, who was apparently channeling Samson when he made it…

  3. Jeff Hebert says:

    That’s pure Samson win, Gero, thanks! I like to think the buildings are all getting together to plot revenge on him when he comes within sight.

    Err…Jeff, I just lost all my saves. AGAIN.

  5. Jeff Hebert says:

    Kaylin, all I can say is, make sure you have image and text backups. I can’t control what the browsers are doing with the Flash cookies in the latest releases.

  6. Kaylin88100 says:

    OK, just re-remade all my basic models. AND saved them in text files. I’m good to go 🙂

  7. Rick says:

    Note to self: avoid opening Heromachine when drinking coffee. That’s downright disturbing!

  8. haz says:

    What’s most disturbing is that this isn’t a case of “Whoops! Didn’t know your face was there.” Going by Samson’s creeper face, this is a case of “Hey kid, step into my unmarked, windowless horse-drawn van.”

  9. Anarchangel says:

    Someone call social services.

  10. Trekkie says:

    Okay, so that text in the picture says “Samson smashes the warlike dictators”. But whatever it is he’s holding above his head doesn’t look like a dictator. Unless he’s under the impression that his sidekick is a “warlike dictator”.

    Also, to add to the disturbing implications, it looks a bit like Samson’s winking as well.

  11. John says:

    The lack of nipples on these male figures is just weird.

  12. Myro says:

    I’m a little worried for David. I think smashing buildings might be an aphrodisiac for Samson.

    “Hey, David. Now that I’ve reduced this place to rubble, you know what I like to do afterwards?”
    “Samson, no!”

    And with that, I’ve stepped over the line into completely inappropriate.

    Wrist-mounted blasters.

    It’s images like this that let the Comics Code Authority in in the ’50s. Man, this issue and Batman #84 must have been the big ones on Wertham’s mind when he wrote his book. But then he was a psychiatrist and you know one of the old jokes about psychiatrists.

  15. Dan Gonzalez says:

    Does anyone else see the wolf’s face in Samson’s crotch?

  16. punkjay says:

    Wow if you thought Batman and Robin had something weird going on at least they weren’t wearing furry underwear and I don’t think Robin EVER stared longinly into Batman’s crotch!

  17. What is that he’s lifting? Is that a log? Is Samson slinging around lumber? If that isn’t Freudian I don’t know what is.

  18. No, no, Dan, it’s a bear.
