Pepsi and 20th Century Fox have teamed up with Medicom toys to bring a promotional bearbrick series sold with 100ml pepsi nex. They offer a toy for fight club, alien, titanic, 24, prison break, die hard, the omen, planet of the apes, predator, day after tomorrow, devil wears prada and night at the museum. most of the fox projects are awful, but all the toys are great (and cheap, ¥１４７ for the toy and pepsi). The only problem now is I dont drink soda, so iv got a ton of cola to get rid of.

Young people of America, awake from your slumber of indolence and harken the call of the future! Do you realize that you are rapidly becoming a doomed generation? Do you realize that the fate of the world and of generations to come rests on your shoulders? Do you realize that at any time you may be called on to protect your country and the freedom of the world from the creeping scourge of Communism? How can you possibly laugh in the face of the disasters which face us from all sides? Oh ignorant youth, the world is not a joyous place. The time has come for you to dispense with the frivolous pleasures of childhood and get down to honest toil until you are 65. Then and only then can you relax and collect your social security and live happily until the time of your death. …--Fearfully and disgustedly yours,
John J. Righteous-Hypocrite.
(by Hunter S. Thompson, 1955, Louisville, age 16)
