I ❤ my friends!! 

I received a package at work today from one of my Canadian friends, I think I know who…but they are staying quiet. 😉

So. What was in that box?

But this is what is really funny, he knows me so well. I bought this little mini Wonder Woman in today, to guard/protect my coffee. What? It’s Monday, it needs extra protection. LOL :p I’m soo silly.

And for a size comparison, also now both are guarding the coffee mug! Go Wondies! 😀

And yes, I remove my figures from the boxes, if you listen very carefully, you can hear a fanboy squeal,
“OMG! IT’S NO LONGER MIB! (MINT IN BOX)!”
heehee I’m soooo evil. 😛

Take your Action Figure to Work Day!

From the brain of my friend, Randy! 😀

Let’s take our action figure to work day! I ❤ this!!!! and I’ll finally have an excuse for doing so! lol 😉

so how did this come to pass? Let’s read it in his words, as he is the one that came up with it. From his site and email to me:

In February of 2014, I was getting ready for work one morning, and noticed my Variant New Teen Titans White Raven on the shelf. I picked her up, took a picture of her next to my coffee cup and posted it on Instagram with the caption, ‘White Raven senses I need more coffee.’ That gave me the idea to take her to work with me and photograph her doing various things in my office. By that evening, I had gotten such a positive response from all my friends that I decided to do it again. This time, however, I would see how many people would do the same thing, all on the same day. With only 3 days to plan and get  the word out, I proclaimed March 7, 2014, the first annual Take Your Action Figure To Work Day. I created a Facebook event and shared it with everyone I knew. The next day, I saw an brief mention of this on a newspaper website from Detroit. Figures Toy Company was the first business to get behind it with posts on their Facebook and Instagram. NECA Entertainment, Hastings Entertainment, Free Comic Book Day and several other quickly followed suit.
By the evening of March 6th, I was already seeing the hashtag being used in Singapore and Thailand. People were emailing me with questions about what constituted an ‘Action Figure,’ (Yes, Barbie dolls count), and what hashtag they were supposed to use.
On March 7th, the newest Geek Holiday was born as hundreds of people tweeted thousands of pictures all day. The Hulk smashed a water cooler, Jawas delivered soda cans, and Wonder Woman became a librarian, while the Cheetah tried to thwart her first day on the job.  By day’s end, over 700,000 people saw at least one tweet about Action Figure Work Day, and I started getting follow up emails about when to do it next year. I am so excited that so many people latched on to this little idea, and I thank you for visiting this site. Let’s make Action Figure Work Day 2015 the geekiest holiday of the year!

How To Participate
Do you have an action figure? Do you have a camera? Do you have a social media account? If the answer is yes, than you have all you need to participate! Take your action figure to work on the first Friday in March and post pictures of him/her/it with you, with your coworkers, with a client or with your boss (well, maybe not your boss). Get creative! Who doesn’t want to see Wolverine pulling double duty as a paper shredder? In 2014 some people even story boarded a day in the life of their action figure, for the time they woke up, to the end of the day. Even Cheetah and Wonder Woman put aside their differences at the end of the day to go camping together.
You’re only limited by your own creativity. Post away! Be sure you include the Official #AFWD2015 so we can all see the amazing things you do to make this as nerdy as possible.
