The Dude Abides

We’re not big toy collectors. In fact we pretty much stopped collecting toys right around the time we got made fun of for playing with them. Which was last year. Okay, okay, just kidding. We grew out of the toy phase like a lot of people, but we’re constantly seeing toys made for adults, like the Todd McFarlane toys, and wondering why we stopped collecting.

And then AndyStitzer sold his toy collection for $500,000 and we were like damn, better get us some toys. At this point you’re like what the eff does this have to do with The Dude? Well Bif Bang Pow! Toys has just come out with a line of toys and bobble head dolls celebrating the Coen Brothers film, The Big Lebowski.

It’s kind of a cultish flick from way back in 1998, but if you’re reading this then I don’t have to bother convincing you of the genius behind the movie. And if you haven’t seen the movie, well, get down to Blockbuster or add it to your Netflix cue. Right now. Do it!

If you’re a fan, everyone has a favorite line. Ours? That’s easy – Walter’s rant at any point in the movie. For example:

  • What the fuck are you talking about? The chinaman is not the issue here, Dude. I’m talking about drawing a line in the sand, Dude. Across this line, you DO NOT… Also, Dude, chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature. Asian-American, please.”
  • “Nihilists! Fuck me. I mean, say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it’s an ethos.”
  • ” I did not watch my buddies die face down in the muck so that this fucking strumpet…”

Good times, good times. Anyway. The Dude would certainly abide of these toys. Head over to Collection Dx for the complete story and photos.
