    But what goes on the remaining 4 sides? Now I'm not going to be able to sleep.

    I'm just angsty about not having a laser printer yet.

      The 'M' block bottom middle of the picture looks like it's got the chemical symbol for Potassium along with its number and atomic weight. I don't know what other symbols might be on the other sides but I'm hoping one of them is Krypton.

  2. I may have to get these if I ever decide to procreate.
    I may be able to justify getting these if I ever decide to procreate.

      Interesting to watch the meme propagation -- you're usually very early in the chain, but this showed up on a friend's LJ about a week ago. I was able to snag a set then (4 were left at the time); my husband better like them, or out on the curb with him...

      Hmm, they have accepted my order. I wonder if/when they'll tell me they can't deliver. A shame - they'd be perfect for my two year old son...

        I work for Xylocopa, and I just want to reassure you that we will have no trouble shipping your order :)

        We were sold out briefly this morning but we are producing more blocks as fast as we can!

    Oh, I am SO getting those for the spawn.

  6. I like that the Zombies are just a slightly more decomposed set of Henchmen.

      Mine just arrived. They are awesome, and still smell strongly of burnt wood. They appear to have been cut with a plotting dremel or similar.
