Paulie Pocket

Here we’ve got Paulie Pocket — the brother-in-law of Polly Pocket. Once a humble meat-packer (that’s not a euphemism) his all-round surliness caused him to slip into a world of mobsters, booze and smashing up arcade machines. But just when you thought he was nothin’ but a jealous, lazy bum, something happened, something truly beautiful. Yep, he received a sweet-talking robot companion on his birthday and his life was never the same again. Okay, we admit it; this story is just lifted straight out of Rocky IV (with a slightly higher pocket count). We promise to try harder next time.
