Just to show I'm not the only one wasting the day playing with toys.
Somehow, I can picture Dr. Doom doing just about the same thing.
One of my favorite pages ever, from one of my favorite runs. From The Incredible Hulk Annual #17, "Old as the Hills" Written by Peter David (based on a concept by Paul Ryan), pencils by Ron Wagner, inks by Mike Witherby and Al Milgrom.
Wonder how the Hulk would feel if he came with an Annihilus wing or a piece of the Blob's ass?
I had the old, early series Captain America and Silver Surfer: those and the first Toy Biz Nightcrawler are what got be started back on toy collecting back then.

Once, a friend asked me what I did with all these toys, and perhaps thinking of these pages, I told him whenever I was depressed or sad, I made them fight. Without a moment's hesitation, he told me that was "the cruelest thing" he ever heard: "Poor bastards must have bruises by now!" Ow.

Oh, I think the internets have established that you're not the only one wasting your day with toys. :D

It's NEVER a waste of time playing with your toys! You'd just spend that time watching stupid television anyway.

With a "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" reference thrown in, to boot! That's comics writing.
