A boy and dad passion for action figures.

Ben 10

For the past 2 years and a half, Isaac and I have been addicted to the Ben 10 animated TV show and action figures. It is about a boy who acquires a watch-like alien device attached to his wrist that allows him to turn into alien creatures. All fun!

I managed to find a couple of Ben 10 figures online for almost nothing!

First there is Upchuck, he is a Gourmand (from the French word "gourmet," meaning "one who enjoys fine food" or "glutton") from the planet Peptos XI ("Peptos" being the Greek word for "cooked" or "digested"). Its a big and cool looking figure and actually the very first version of this character we own.

Second is Fourarms! Ben's preferred offensive form is Fourarms, a Tetramand (tetra meaning "four" in Greek, mand being "arms" in Latin) from the desert planet Khoros. Khoros epitomizes a dystopia, resulting in the strength-oriented Tetramands. This is our second version of the character.
