Guys, I feel like I’ve let you down. Almost a month ago, I received an email about the existence of a series of fan-made video called Action Figure Therapy, where Joes and Cobra felt free to express their thoughts about their roles in their good and evil military organizations. As is occasionally the case, it got lost in the chaotic morass that is the TR mailbox. Until now.
Behold the joy that is Action Figure Therapy. My apologies for not showing it to you sooner. Two more of my favorites are after the jump.
For many, many more videos, and a hell of an entertaining next hour or so, go right here.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
