If the increasingly omnipresent Christmas decorations visible today are any indication, November 15 marks the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. And we've got a nice stocking-stuffer idea for those of you raising wee Trojans!
LEGO has released its second collection of special-edition minifigures this year that aren't tied to any particular theme. They're just cool little collectibles, from a lion tamer to a zombie to a mime. And there's one in the collection that's called "The Spartan Warrior," but note the coloring -- There's clearly some USC spirit at work here:
To complete the coincidence, please note other minifigs' uncanny resemblances to Ed Orgeron and Pete Carroll. Check out one of the medieval collections, where they're bound to have a white horse that could pass for a tiny Traveler, and you're all set! (And any resemblance between Rick Neuheisel and this fetching young lady is entirely coincidental.)
