SUPER Speedy... that's better than just plain old Speedy, isn't
Yes it is, Wink. And I'll tell you why. When I'm done I'll be
the BEST Speedy action figure ever brought to market, ANYWHERE.
That's not just talk, that is actually my own completely focused
psychological pressure on the whole entire universe, to make
me the most exceptional toy I can be, and more.
I'm not sure I understand that, but let's just say you achieve
your goal, that you become a valuable Teen Titan with authentic
original parts... what then?
WHAT THEN? Are you kidding? Look, these repro parts and this
beater Green Arrow suit; that's not me! I have some emails in
right now, serious dealers mind you, and it seriously shouldn't
take me more than a year to get the creamy-minty suit. Seriously.
I know I'm going to have to change hands a few times; I know
that. But I'm telling you... drive like mine is the stuff it
takes to turn loose parts into dreams, baby!
Parts into Dreams... I like the sound of that! You've been photographed
at the Toy Museum looking very different than you do today. You
haven't been Super Speedy your whole life, have you?
No. I went to art school, I did the whole thing, you know....
but I never really connected with any of it. I mean, my original
mask was long gone and I have this horrendous repaint! What else
am I going to do, right?
But then I just got to thinking that maybe
my rejection of commercialism and the whole anti-hero-worship
thing, maybe that was all actually just this great big plea from
my conflicted Inner Commodity, you know? Like, "I don't
want to be your toy, man!" but also like, "Play
with me! Play with me!!" You know?
Right, so from right then I'm all thinking like, I'm going
to be a Teen Titan again! And I even had a dream that I would
be sold "for a cool G" ... I don't even know how much
that is really, but I can tell you that if drive counts for anything,
I'm already 1/4 the way there!!
Of course you are.
