Review #3: Soma Homeless Person

The 80s were full of little rubber figurine toys that featured crazy character designs, and were marketed in the "gotta catch em all" style before Pokemon was even around. This company, Soma, took a different route. They made little rubber figurines that no one really wanted. This could be a wrestling figure, but its actually the only toy made for the movie "Throw Momma From the Train".
Things do not really improve from the back:

Or from this angle:
Its hard to gauge the size of the figure from these photos, so I included a picture of her in front of some 3D glasses so you can imagine the toy in relation to your face if you were to hold it right in front of you while wearing glasses similar to the ones pictured.


  1. Your blog has been cracking me up for about the last half-hour or so. This post (along with the star nosed mole post) is slightly more disturbing, but nonetheless entertaining.
    I had to look up a trailer for "Throw Momma From the Train", but I'd have to say there is an uncanny resemblance between "Momma" and this seemingly constipated figure that I wouldn't want anywhere near my face.
    I hope you keep writing, because I'll be looking forward to reading more.

  2. It does seem "Momma" is a constipated superhero. Perhaps the force of the eventual release of the constipation will launch her into the air and on to her next mission of grumpy do-gooding.

  3. Loved Throw Momma the movie and your post.
