I'll post pics later this week of these vehicles. I grabbed a Millenium Falcon, Slave 1 and X-Wing to add to the mix.  This Falcon only cost $13 or so, and it is big. My son loves the ships so I am hoping this will be a big hit. I left behind speeder bike and landspeeder. I Did not see any regular TIE fighters or Star Destroyers, two more I'd like to get. The regular size ones that were normally $10 were down to $7.

A Chopper in 20" or 30" scale would be pretty cool.

Super Mario 3D World is an absolute masterpiece. I cannot recommend it enough.  I am a lifelong huge Ninty fan, and I love the WiiU. You can get  very reasonable bundles now.  Plus, it plays all Wii games as well.   This week I grabbed NES Remix pack (I bought part one but heard about this physical release shortly before springing on PT 2). So incredibly addictive. Mario Kart is also a blast.

I think that Fulcrum is Ashoka Tano. One of the crates had markings on it similar to those on her head..thingies.

I grabbed an AT-AT, Snowspeeder and TIE Advanced for my son from Santa.  These are pretty cool.  A bit bigger than the Titanium, IIRC.  They have the three I listed, as well as a Speeder Bike, and the vehicles in this gift set, one of which (Wedge's X-Wing) is exclusive to the set.  The Falcon and Star Destroyer retail for $20 each so this is a decent bargain.

The other thing to remember is Disney/Marvel still own all the non-movie rights to the characters.  If people are still going to buy X-Men, F4, and Spiderman comics, it would only cost Marvel money to not put them out.
...and toys, t-shirts, mugs, and other associated chotchkies...

I'm sure that Disney via Marvel gets some cut of the pie when Fox or Sony releases a Marvel film, even if it isn't officially under the Marvel Studios banner.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Prototype Boba Fett (Walgreens)

I grabbed one yesterday morning.  I think this will go from hard-to-find to pegwarmer quick.  My store had a full case of 8, and I was there at 12 and got the first one.  There are many other stores in a 10mi radius, and this was the only one that showed any on the website, so it would have been very easy to get for anyone interested.

Someone did say it was a risky plan.

I do think that DC's whole lineup is one or two bombs away from jeopardy though.

Marvel as a brand is now closely associated with quality.  Aside from Batman, DC is very hit-or-miss.  I hope they take the same care with their films that Marvel has shown, but their track record does not work in their favor.

I think that Marvel went...  IM was a success...  Let's build a basic framework to inter-relate these next films we have on the docket culminating in The Avengers (Phase 1).  Then for Phase 2, they got a little more ambitious, and said lets plant seeds for phase 2 AND phase 3.  The success of GotG is a direct result of the strength that Feige has built up into the Marvel brand name.

I have a sinking feeling (and I hope I'm wrong) that DC will stumble over itself trying for that big paycheck without building up to it.

Not sure if this is news, but I have been seeing these figs at Targets and WalMarts, usually near the trading card sections they keep near the registers.
