I’m having flashbacks to my childhood. Remember the days when you watched cartoons on Saturday mornings. I loved cartoons, especially Rainbow Brite and the Smurfs.

There was always something exciting about watching new and exciting toys flash across the screen–seeing kids playing with toys that looked like so much fun.
Well, I may not be a kid anymore and I don’t play with toys on a regular basis. Still, all of the Thorin statues, busts and action figures that have been revealed lately create the same rush I felt when I was a kid watching those toy commercials.
