Kickass Custom Action Figure of the Day: How great is this? The upsettingly talented Paul Pape (of Custom Carbonite fame) created a custom action figure for Conan’s Bruce Timm-designed superhero alter-ego The Flaming C, complete with “a belt to hold his Blackberry, an oven mitt that always produces steam, a jai alai glove, fishnet stockings, socks with garters and golf shoes.”
Pape took his unsolicited project a step further by throwing in some custom packaging as well. “I shipped them off to his studio in hopes that it may end up in his hands,” Pape writes. It simply must.
First Look of the Day: Conan’s first Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television Tour show took place last night in Eugene, Oregon. SPOILER ALERT (for real, this time): According to earlyreviews, the two-hour-long extravaganza’s highlights include “self-deprecating” stand-up, familiar friends (Andy Richter, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, and the “Self-Pleasuring Panda”), and the obligatory “crazy pink leather sequined jumpsuit.”
To prove his good spirits, Conan kick-started the show with a revamp rendition of “I Will Survive,” which can be seen above.
