I want to get some GI Joe-type guys (or authentic, whatever) and put on a martial arts exhibition with the webcam. How sweet would that be?

Martial arts might be hard since you would most likely have to have them in the air to do jumps and so forth. But, you could make them fight a little war, and do campy explosions. Like instead of having real explosions you could have pop up things like Blam! Biff! Ka Pow! like from the Batman tv show and so forth. Yo Joe!

Holy cow, I've considered doing something like that with my old super hero action figures. Great minds think alike. *nudge*

I, as well, have He-Man figures, although if I remember correctly, they move rather stiffly, and wouldn't be able to be as entertaining as the small, plastic figures. I wish I didn't throw out my Thundercats toys, because ones of that size would show up well with a cheap QuickCam video.

I actually bought 2 little GI Joe figures last night, the small old school ones. I figure for major fighting I can put the camera facing down and use the table top as the side view to give the illusion of mid-air moves. It might suck, I don't know, but it's an idea.

I think I'll start considering what I could do with mine. I think I'll go for more of a "sports entertainment" type bout, rather than karate, since I know nothing about karate.

It's quite difficult to do without my hands getting in the way. I'd like to have them not appear at all, although it'll take some "practice" to see what does, and doesn't work, in doing this.

Well, it's not a problem...until the one night when you're 35, and your wife comes down to the basement at 4AM to find you, and comes upon you with a pile of G.I. Joes, then demands that you see a psychologist.
