Does this remind you of anything?

Postby Jeff » Sat Jan 05, 2013 9:08 pm

So I decided to get involved with Meetup groups starting this year. I took the train into Manhattan today to the American Museum of Natural History with other 20-30 year olds from Long Island like me. We were passing some agricultural section and saw this...

I was like...wait a minute. I looked closer....

Do these figurines remind you of some guys?......

The Ren figurine is even wearing a bandanna!

I don't recall, it appears to be away to create more farmland by cascading it upward. Other than that I have no idea.

My first thought on seeing the first picture was when Sonic's about to leap onto the Death Egg from the Sky Sanctuary Zone.

Haha, nice. The picture first got me thinking of Zelos from Skies of Arcadia for some reason.

This is good news, Ryo and Ren are in the future. (since that is a depiction of a future farming method)

lol, thats pretty funny.

i have heard that people who design computer micro chips often put small designs & pictures into there work, often with no one ever knowing they have done it. so this clearly could be a shenmue joke.

Not sure but I think it's near some agricultural section, I think near Asian People's. You'll just have to keep your eyes peeled.
