The Aisle of (Awesome) Misfit Toys?

We really got a jump on our holiday shopping this year and i've been waiting for weeks to post up about the incredible display of awesomeness I saw at my local Toys 'R' Us. Right near the front they had and ENTIRE WALL of toys and ornaments from the always-classic Rankin Bass stop-motion masterpiece 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer'!

I mean they had everybody from Rudolph to Yukon Cornelius to Hermie to The Bumble to...well, they had just about EVERYBODY. They have individual figures, entire sets and some sweet looking clip-on ornaments for your tree as well! These are all really well done too and look like they hopped right out of the TV. This will very soon be adorning our mantle above the fireplace...

It's perfect timing too, as the boys have just gotten old enough to start appreciating not just Christmas...but Christmas TV Specials! Right now, they seem a little more partial towards the animated Rankin Bass 'Frosty the Snowman', but (barring a few freakouts over the Bumble) they seem to be warming up to 'Rudolph' too.

Just wait 'til the boys get a load of the Burgermeister Meisterburger, Winter Warlock and the infamous Miser Brothers. Yikes!
