"One afternoon on the S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier..."


Of course the Helicarrier has a gift shop, it's got everything else.

Just a quick one, since this is our sixth year of Random Happenstance! And yet we still have the production values of a seventies episode of Dr. Who. An early seventies episode.

EDIT: Oh, silly, I didn't mention those little Avengers chibi figures? $2.99 a pack at your local Wal-Mart, Target, or good grocery store. And the Cap one is harder to find than plutonium. They're blind-packed, though, and if you have any experience with the Lego mini-figures, you may be able to feel Cap's shield in the package. If you're not afraid to completely molest a bunch of packs, that is. Still, if that's the worst thing someone sees at Wal-Mart...

Fury and Coulson's guns are easy to feel, but they're pretty common. Hawkeye is slightly less so, but his bow is pretty big. Thor's hammer is smaller, but distinctive; and the Hulk is larger as well. I finally got a full set, so that obsession is done...

They have a gift shop? Man, that is some Helicarrier! I can only assume that it also has a pool, climbing wall and salon.

Here, here on the gift shop idea. You could easily do a nice series of skits about the misadventures of the SHIELD gift shop(nudge,nudge).

Oh, and happy 6-year anniversary you crazy sonavabitch you!

Keep up the great the production values we've all come to love.

But seriously, if your production values are circa mid-70's Dr.Who, then mine are surely early to mid-60's Dr. Who.(And don't call me surely)
