I started watching True Detective this week and am officially hooked. I mostly despise McCoughnehe, but his acting in this show is really a work of art. You can tell that he's living and breathing the role.
The $20-23 price point is irritating, but manageable given they only release 2-3 new figures per wave and there's little other SW stuff to buy these days. The Marvel 6" stuff is right up there at $20ish as well.
I finally opened my Aliens, Terminator, and Predator figures. I was second guessing these all along, but I like them a lot more opened up. They hold their weapons well and are really a nice match to the old Kenner SW figures. Still not getting a lot of them, but I'll likely snag anything new from Terminator/Aliens/Predator.
Guys, I plan to finalize my Kubrick display around June/July, so rest assured that once I have finalized my collection, Medicom will announce something new to make me redo everything. Trust me, we'll have the new ones announced by August.
The timing on this will be interesting for me to watch. We head down in 6 weeks, so will DW have the new parts or the old parts? I still don't have a set of the old ones, so would like those to hang around, but it would equally stink to miss out on the new parts while I'm there. Just have to wait and see I guess.
I would bet most fans didn't even know about these. Do they advertise them anywhere? I have only ever seen them at Walgreens and in crummy pairs on Target back end caps. $20 price point probably steers away a lot of interest as well.
