• Amy Poehler and Tina Fey action figures? Is it Christmas tomorrow?

    Yes, Internet, it’s true. In case you missed this crime-fighting bombshell tidbit from last week’s kickass news cycle, there are now actual Tina Fey and Amy Poehler action figures. And bless them, the package even comes with a little news desk. (Kind of like Wonder Woman’s invisible jet, but more snarky and intellectual). Batteries not included, but you won’t need ’em: just seat the ladies in front a slideshow of ludicrous current event Internet memes, and supply your own pithy dialogue and barbs as warranted.

A product of the toy company Entertainment Earth, the world’s greatest use of plastic will be making its official debut at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego. Talk about Christmas in July. But here’s the catch: according to CNN, only about 2,400 copies of the Fey/Poehler toys have been produced, so these three and a half inch versions of our favorite “Weekend Update” anchors are likely to sell out faster than hotcakes laced with crack. That means, if you’re planning to get your little comedy-worshipping mitts on a pair of these soon-to-be uber-rare collectors’ items, you’d better pre-order a set now for $29.99 before prices skyrocket to nine billion-finity on the eBay marketplace.
