A tiny addition to the last panel in today's Fox Trop comic strip made me laugh. Amongst the figures included on the computer desk is our friend Maximillian from The Black Hole.

Bender, R2, and Maximillian.

I'd kill Maximillian, have a beer with Bender, and let R2 be my roommate.

Maximillian scared the beejebus' out of me when I saw that movie for the first time.

I'd love to have that figure (and old BOB) all over again but they aren't in the budget just yet.

Max isn't terrible expensive. Old BOB is. :D

But, yeah, Maximillian was pretty intimidating.

This is Maximilian...named after the robot. He's a 28 pound Maine Coon.

That's great!

I love Maximillian.

Still have my original one minus his stand I got at Lionel Playworld on sale back in like 1981. One of the few on figs that is still in good shape from my childhood.
