Heisenberg 1, Florida Woman 0.

Late last week, Susan Schrivjer of Fort Myers started a Change.org petition to get Toys 'R' Us to remove Breaking Bad action figures from its shelves.

The items - which featured  Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in Hazmat suits, along with tiny guns, sacks of cash and a bag of meth - are on sale now for $13.99.

But it isn't the price with which Schrivjer takes issue.

"Toys R Us is well known around the world for their vast selection of toys for children of all ages," the documents reads. "However, their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children's toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values."

Fans of cosplay, prepare to have your worlds rocked! Everyone's getting in on the fantasy dress-up action, including the actors who bring your favorite characters to life!

Steve Carell
Steve Carell voiced Gru in Despicable Me I and II. To promote the second film, Carell appeared on Ellen and did the entire segment in character.

For talk show appearances and magazine spreads, our favorite voice actors are getting into character only to be outdone by the actors who show up at Comic Con dressed like, well, um...themselves?

They're real people just like us! But dressed as... the characters they play on TV! Okay, so it's hard to explain if you think about it for too long. 

Lending voice to cartoon characters is a treat for Hollywood's best and brightest, and a legitimate career path for people like Rachel FredericksonThe Biggest Loser winner. 

Let's take a look at a few more voice actors we'd love to see dressed in character in the real world.

The Primetime Emmy Awards are being held a little earlier than usual this year, and so in order to avoid competing with preseason football and the 2014 Video Music Awards, the ceremony is being held on a Monday for the first time in 38 years.

But if you're feeling a bit confused, worry not!

For one thing, the show is unlikely to feature anything as unexpected as Miley Cyrus' homeless date to the VMAs. In addition, we've got everything you need to no about who's gonna take home the gold tonight in the handy gallery below:

Best Drama Series: Will Win - Breaking Bad
Expect a repeat win for the final season of the groundbreaking AMC drama.

Yes, the Emmys may have switched up their air date this year, they remain the most predictable of award shows.

The Tonight Show provided us with another hilarious viral moment on Monday.

A few days after Jimmy Fallon lost a lip-sync battle to Emma Stone and Cameron Diaz photobombed tourists on the roof of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, Bryan Cranston stopped by the program for a game of Word Sneak.

For the game, each star was challenged to use five words into a conversation - including “badonkadonk,” a term that the Breaking Bad actor butchered before turning to the audience and mouthing:

“I don’t know what that is!"

Watch the entire video now. It's totally adorable:

Looks like Cranston may be the one who knocks, but he's never the one who has knocked boots with someone who looks like Kim Kardashian.

It is that time once again, THGers. The time to unveil the finalists for, and eventually the winner of, THG's prestigious, arbitrary, 7th Annual Celebrity of the Year honor.

Between now and the end of 2013, we will be counting down the 10 stars who provided us with the best moments, stories, scandals and entertainment value.

We kicked off the countdown earlier with a smoldering Kate Upton at #10. Now we present our Celebrity of the Year Finalist #9 ... Walter White!

Strange as it may seem to put a fictional TV character on our year-end list ... this is not your average TV character. There will never be another Walter White.

Developed by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and portrayed by Bryan Cranston, Walt (and later his Heisenberg persona) became iconic.

Once a promising chemist and co-founder of a multi-billion dollar company, we first met Walter as a meek, nerdy, down on his luck chemistry teacher.

Bryan Cranston has three Emmy Awards on his mantel.

But it may end up being a framed letter that becomes the actor's most prized possession.

Two weeks after the Breaking Bad finale that rocked the television universe, Cranston received a written message from Sir Anthony Hopkins that gave the AMC show, its crew and its cast the highest of praise.

It also said Cranston put on the "best acting" Hopkins has ever seen.

And this man has seen some acting in his time!

Scroll down to read the full letter from the Academy Award-winning legend:

Remember at this year's Comic-Con in San Diego?

When Bryan Cranston proved just how awesome he is by walking around the downtown convention center in a Heisenberg mask? Making attendees believe he was just a dedicated Breaking Bad fan?

That rubber mask - signed by Cranston - is now on sale at eBay and, as of last night, it was fetching $23,400!

Bidding closes at 8 p.m. EST Sunday, one hour before Walter White's journey comes to an end on the Breaking Bad finale.

So we have to ask: How much would you pay for Bryan Cranston's Heisenberg mask?

As Walter White, Bryan Cranston has spent years fooling family and friends into believing he's a mild-mannered science teacher.

At Comic-Con over the weekend, meanwhile, the Emmy winner fooled a number of attendees into believing he was simply a fan of Breaking Bad, strolling around the San Diego Convention Center in khakis, a button down - and a Heisenberg mask.

Who could have guessed the man under this mask was Cranston himself?!?

During the show's panel discussion Sunday, costar Aaron Paul described Cranston as "the most professional person I've ever worked with, but also the immature man I've ever experienced.. which is a beautiful combination."

Yes it is.

Breaking Bad Season 5 resumes on August 11. Only eight episodes of the incredible series remain.
