User avatar Flimsy Floppy Bendy Batman

Everyone needs a mascot, everyone needs a prop. When you’re doing things with people (waaaaaaaaay!) it’s always good to have one particular item that everyone can focus on or channel their thoughts into when times are hard.

User avatar The price of Ian’s face

What is Ian’s face worth to you? I wonder if you can even put a figure on it.
