Michael Fassbender in an article by Jill Pantozzi (@TheNerdyBird) talks about the sort of action figures he played with as a kid:

Star Wars was really the only sci-fi sort of fascination I had as a youngster. I collected and I’ve still got the AT-AT and the Millennium Falcon and the Ewok village,” Fassbender told Absolute Radio. “I suppose they are worth a bit of money. I sort of passed them on I think, and also I took them out of their box.”

Fassbender went on to describe the Ewok village set to them, just in case there was any question of his sincerity. “It’s kind of like three trees, or four perhaps, they’re sort of joined together with the platform bit. It’s quite cool, you can go into the trunk of one and come out the other, and there’s a little sort of wind up trap net thing where you can sort of reel somebody up,” he said.

The Ewok Village play-set in question (from this site):

EWOK VILLAGE PLAYSET

There seems to be some sort of inconsistency where the playset can’t seem to decide whether it had greenery on the tops of its trees or not.

Michael Fassbender recently appears in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS. He is slated to appear in the upcoming Ridley Scott ALIEN-prequel PROMETHEUS.

TRON!! 

I loved the TRON LEGACY movie. I loved the merchandise, as is apparent in my 2+ boxes worth of action figures, cars, die-cast vehicles, RC cars that can drive up the wall vertically, two types of frisbees, the PS3 TRON controller and my RAZR mouse that lights up. Obsessed? Perhaps a little bit…

And thanks to some generous and lucky relatives, I too have one of these exact same toy IDENTITY DISCs that Bruce Boxleitner is holding at the world premiere of the film “TRON: Legacy” in Hollywood, California, circa Nov 2010.

Michael C. Hall as DEXTER in an episode of the show where he finds action figures of his alter ego, the “Bay Harbor Butcher”. 

It’s like witnessing Bruce Wayne finding action figures of himself as Batman, but cooler in an out-of-body way.

The scowl.

The hair!

The easily-accessible gjanja packs in his forearm.

Wait, that’s a Pineapple Express reference. NVM.
