Star Wars Han Solo bobble head - Wacky wobbler from Funko
Carbonite. Wonderful stuff that. Seen famously at the end of "The Empire Strikes Back" as Han Solo (Harrison Ford) finds himself captured and hauled away like a slab of meat for the eat and plenty. Claiming a far better captive-in-hold rate than prison chains or silk ties, it's at the top of all bounty hunter wishlists.
But what's cheaper than carbonite and can allow all you bounty hunters a clearer product display of your captive? A plastic box of course. Like the one seen here displaying Han Solo once more. Colourful and with eyes that look like they were painted on, you can now allow your bidders, buyers and other people to see exactly in full array, the person you have in locks.
Joining the ranks of bobble heads
from wacky wobbler makers, Funko, he's still the same Millennium Falcon pilot all so many Star Wars lovers love to love.
Not so much for those fans of Greedo though.
(Does this maverick have some kind of fetish for being bound by tight spaces?)

Mr Bean wacky wobbler - From Funko
Pinto beans, green beans, jelly beans, franks and beans. All sorts of beans. And then there's Mr Bean.
Rowan Atkinson in his other role outside of Black Adder and as an incarnation of The Doctor
No much to say about Mr Bean given that he himself has not much to say. Often going through life with all the luck of a four leaf clover walking around with a rabbit's foot. All the luck to the clover, none to the three-legged rabbit bopping about in some burrow.
Asking Mr. Bean for his thoughts on what Christmas is all about and what it means to him is hard fought. So don't bother. Instead, just pop down to the local pirate ships and hook up with seasons worth of Black Adder
and be done with it. That's Christmas right there done and sorted.
(Yes, Atkinson has been in such fine fare including Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually
and Johnny English
but that's for another segment for some other day. Willing.)

Scooby Doo 20-inch bobble bank - Funko
Dog biscuits look so enticing don't they? Nicely shaped with a crunch that looks like it delivers a solid chomp. Even available in varieties where chewing and eating on these canine gut destined foods and such will clean the teeth. And what about those with the jerky?
Taking a bag of dog food to snack on at some sporting event, or even that of the cinema, not so enticing after all. Especially taste wise. And there is never enough cat food around to wash out the flavour of chowing down into a handful of dog biscuits on hand.
Wonder what then was in those Scooby snacks that Shaggy and his pal Scooby Doo were always mowing down.
Feed a dog any kind of dog food made for them and they should be right, in moderation. But some chocolate on that and watch them go to the vet. It's like watching them eat a pool of coins, shiny and coated in their own sort of evil. Unlike popping the coins into a Scooby Doo bobble bank. Do that and wait for what comes out the other side. No gloves needed.

Daffy Duck wacky wobbler - Looney Tunes Xmas series 1 - Funko
Not duck season? Why, it's never not duck season.
The quack of the crackers on the dinner table. Where the chicken and the turkey have come and done years and years many more. The possibly juicy fowl is there for the biting and taking.
An optional choice for those who seek not to have a seafood feast these coming days and weeks. And a mighty serving to turn over the tide of other feathery plates that may offer their beaks for your stomach's service.
Certainly not a contender for the main in the house or set of the vegan and vegetarian. Their lot steering away from the buffet that consists of meat and flesh from animals galore.
So is the hope of Daffy Duck and many of his feathered friends. After all, have you tried eating a full meal with duck as the side? It's hardly a thing, skin and bones and lots of fat for they are a lean creature. What helps them float makes them sink in terms of chunkiness.

Brian Griffin wacky wobbler - Family Guy Xmas series 2 - Funko
Christmas time and it's the season of summer in Australia. A period where the many find comfort in walking aimlessly in the freezers everyone knows as shopping centres. They may sweat out and lose three kilos in the trek from their homes to the multi-level car parking facilities, but make no mistake. The winner is clearly the festive fun.
The loser is the water weight conscious. They who judge their lives on the bathrooms scales. The ones who see how much the bag of dates helped them lose. How far closer to rails they are now with the dodgy food court tastings. The ones who may take to drinking up to water load in times of competition weighing machines.
Care needs to be taken in which liquids go into the temple that is the body in times of staving off dehydration. Simple plain tap water will suffice. Recycled water even. Flat soda water isn't too bad. But stay away from the variety made of hops and barely or potatoes. Stuff which will take the eyes and swim them through what may very well seem like an endless bath of chlorine.
Which also is not a good thing to ingest on any basis, no matter the occasion.

Scarface, Tony Montana - Al Pacino bobble head
Scarface all set with nice set of choppers
Tony Montana from Scarface imparts some sage advice: "What'd I try to tell you? In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women."
Simple power dynamics. Move up from one echelon to another and the results will open up more doors. For the socially conscious, all this stops dead behind teeth and a smile enough to make a crocodile eat a small child in halves.
Nice and pearly white, like a set of PKs or Juicy Fruits, a set of good healthy teeth goes a long way. More so than just as a good turn on the second hand market for pure enamel made dentures.
Nothing can hide the shine that comes from a broad smile flashing more than those men hanging in the park in trench coats.
