Dear Oxford; Dear Lawyers - Salvador Dali in a lawn chair.
I'm invisible without 3D glasses.
Dear Oxford; Dear Lawyers
To all Oxford people:

I have a photograph I want to take. To set the scene, I need an action figure, preferably something familiar like He-Man or She-Ra or Hulk-Hogan, some sort of vein-popping, child-mesmerizing personality action figure.

Or, if necessary, I could make do with Lego characters.

My mother gave away all of my She-Ra "Princess of Power" dolls (I had over a dozen!) when I was younger. So the only ones I have now are the ones I've collected in adulthood (some Star Wars mostly Leia and , a wind-up Bender from Futurama and TreeBeard from The Two Towers.

So, to anyone nearby, do you have any fun (not necessarily popular or recognizable) action figures or Lego characters that I could borrow for a couple of weeks?

To all Lawyers:

Would I be violating any intellectual property or trademarking by using a picture with one of these popular action figures (as only a small part of the photo, but still obvious) on a for-profit website?

If that fails, you can find them fairly readily at flea markets and the like for something between $.25 - 1.

I have two Catra dolls, but you can't have either; sorry. I cannot be away from them for weeks. Anyway, one is still in the packaging, and the other (my original) is one-legged. However, if you would like a Witchblade figure, I have several. I have Sara Pezzini in tiny black dress with Witchblade legs/arm (and you can take off her head and put the Witchblade head on, if you really wanted). I have Sara Pezzini in almost nothing (Witchblade vines cover strategic areas). I have medieval Witchblade (bikini-clad woman with long orange hair and almost fishnet-looking boots). And...Ian Nottingham in Japanese garb. I have Darkness decked out. I have Kenneth Irons decked out in Witchblade attire. I have the Magdalena. I have Armitage. And I have a crazy looking hot pink and purple witch lady. I'm not sure what she's from, but she looks frickin cool. I don't think she'd do for you, though. I also have a larger Witchblade in a red dress. I don't think I have any of the other traditionals like She-Ra and He-Man. I do have one She-Ra, but I'm not sure where she is.

What if you were present for the photographing and then took Catra with you when you left?

I don't know what some of the others are, but they could work, too. If you were their chaperone, do you think they could model for me? :D

I think that would work. But I can't take the one Catra out of the box, and the other has only one leg--you'd need to take upper-body shots with her. Unless you're fine with a one-legged Catra.

We could give her a peg leg!

I'm also interested in some of the other non-Catra stuff you have, too.
