  4. This post is so awesome I am inspired to do a top 10 comment on it!

    10 – Carl Fredricksen from UP : Really very good. You do need to look at it for a second to see the care put into the face and mouth, not to mention the bow-tie.

    9 – Wolverine : Ha! I laughed out loud! That is the most over the top minion I’ve ever seen!

    8 – The Hit Man : Subtle, low key… the perfect hit minion!

    7 – Storm Trooper : Hee hee hee… Look how serious he is! A perfect counterpoint!

    6 – Batman : I’m not quite so impressed with this minion, but that’s probably due to a bad camera angle.

    5 – Edward Scissorhands : My least favorite minion. A real minion would never have such a pathetic looking head and face.

    4 – He-Man : Wow! It’s been a *long* time since I’ve seen “He-Man”. From what I can remember though, this minion looks good.

    3 – Sherlock and Dr. Watson : Good design work for all the different movies and T.V. shows versions of the esteemed residents of 22B Baker Street.

    2 – Spongebob and Patrick : Having never watched this show in real life, I can’t speak to it.

    1 – Super Mario & Luigi : Yeah! Itsa Minion! A great example of minion madness!
