I want this set:

Posted Image

Will someone please buy it for me? I'm a little confused about it, though. Clearly it's an imitation. I know that, so don't tell me that. That's not what I'm confused about. I'm confused about...everything else.
  • What is it?
  • Why is there a door in the middle of a smashed wall in the middle of the park?
  • Do they really dance?
  • Are they super heroes and a girl band?
  • Does it come with that spaceship?
  • Does it come with the moon?
  • That girl on the far left-is her hair eating her face?
  • Why did someone litter when the garbage can is clearly right there?
Does anyone know? *wacko*

The guy in the foreground does bear a striking resemblance to Guy from King of Fighters, a Capcom game out in the late 80s, I believe.  He was later introduced into Street Fighter.  Though this bears a Capcom logo I think it looks to be fake since it CG on the box and an actual photo of the pieces.

There was a girl band in Street Fighter? *wacko* This still doesn't explain why they're littering!

CGI? You mean they're not real? :'-( No!! Don't tell me it's a fake. I want this! It's my new obsession. I want to open the box and pour the cartoons out and watch them dance for me while they litter in the park.

I'm going to host a contest for who can make the best re-creation of this set. The winner gets the priveledge of giving me their entry. X-D We need to create a LEGO fan-theme based on this set! Someone help me find out where I can get one!! :'-)

Have you seen Gackt live? You would have more hope of understanding then... X-D  I'd buy it... where did you find it?

EDIT: Did you find it here?

I'm sure they had music that sounded like a Japanese girl band at one point in a game ;-) As for the littering, not every town is like Hinkleytown, in which it is pristine and where a Walrus may roam the streets without persecution  X-D

What?  *wacko*   I wish Hinckleytown could be like that, where a walrus could be free from the constant fear of being whacked...or given a wedgie, or having his bucket stolen.  The horrible, horrible nightmares they must have  :'-(

Edit:

Just LOOK at the persecution!

Wait, that doesn't sound right. It's worded wrong. Let me try again.

The only walrus

The only shark

The only toaster

Oh never mind. The point is I'm going to sit here and hold my breath until I get that set. :-$

The set in question is based on the old Capcom hack n' slash game "Strider" from the very late 80's... you know, back before the phenomenon of street fighting fighting games.  :-P

Here's a bunch of sprites I ripped from it a long time ago... sadly some of the ONLY remaining classic arcade sprites I managed to save of mine before a very large hard drive crashed.  :'-(

http://www.maj.com/g...riderproto1.bmp
Those aren't dancing girls in that set... they were these mean chinese mother dogs that were later on in the game, doing all sorts of crazy kung fu jumps at poor Strider to knock him off of floating platform vehicles.

I DID have all their sprites ripped, but alas, that too was lost in the crash.
Now, all I have are some chicks from the Amazon level (that I never got around to cleaning up):

If fluoride isn't dangerous, why was it added to the water in the Russian gulags and by the Germans during world war 2 to make the prisoners "apathetic" to what was going on around them?
