It's probably licensing on all of them.  Personally, I'm not so keen on Willie Stargell being in the second Cooperstown assortment.  I think there are a lot more noteworthy players who could get done before him, but c'est la guerre.

I don't think anyone can really argue with the NBA Legends assortment.  Wow!  And this is from someone who's only a casual basketball fan.  I gotta hope that figure #6 would be Bill Russell.

Nope.  The only one I've purchased is Boba Fett (grey jumpsuit), and that will be the extent of my foray into the VOTC 12" line.  My 12" collection is narrowly focused, and Boba was the only one that fit in with that focus.

Since I saw at least 2 new Trilogy figures, and had a couple of other things to order (Marvel Legends Urban Legends & a DVD), I figured I might as well order.  Gil Galad and Elendil look like two of the coolest figures to come around in some time.  Now I can really start building a Fellowship Prologue diorama!

Right here.  Still leading the AL East, BTW.

Does everyone know we've started drafting?

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Wookie Army
« on: August 23, 2004, 04:28 PM »
I don't know if my Wookiee army would rival my Stormtrooper, Clone Trooper or Battle Droid armies, but I'm definitely interested in the prospect.    I would just be concerned that they would only make 1 generic Wookiee warrior, a Chewbacca and a Tarfful in the basic figure line.  I think we might see another Wookiee or two in the vehicle and beast pack lines, though.  It certainly makes the ranks seem a little thin.  Right now, we've got 3 individual Wookiees in the line:

Chewbacca (who knows how many versions)

So another individual plus an army builder or two would definitely be nice.

Anyone else find this promo at TRU?  I got the Strahan-McNabb 2-pack for about $10.  What's up with that?

BTW, OCB....Amazon's got 12" Randy Moss.

Anyone here order the new Unleashed assortment (Bossk, Aayla & Tusken) from Newforce?  Just trying to judge when my case might show up.  Thanks!

Jaws The Revenge.

'Nuff said.

Maybe there will be a surprise return to Sports Center on a more regular basis?

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends
« on: August 16, 2004, 04:58 PM »
While I was in Chicago this weekend I saw a lot of Marvel Legends 6.  The only reasonably priced figures were Wolverine and movie Punisher.  Everything else was WAY overpriced.  Even Cable. 

The one box set I'm somewhat concerned about is the Fantastic Four chase set.  I'd really like that clear Invisible Woman, but I hope it's not too difficult to find.

Gentle Giant / Re: OT Gentle Giant Busts
« on: August 16, 2004, 02:29 PM »
Leia in Boushh diguise is coming to the bust line-up! It will have removable arms, one with a blaster and one with a thermal detonator. It is also rumored to have a remoeable helmet!

Stay tuned!

It isn't a blaster.  It's the staff that Boussh holds.  It's a great piece, no doubt.  I got to see it over the weekend in Chicago, and it's very nice.  However, it's also a prototype.  That's why photography wasn't allowed.

The helmet doesn't actually go over the Leia head.  Rather, there's a pin that holds in up.  The left hand has interchangeable fingers so that it can either cradle the helmet or brandish the thermal detonator.

I've been thinking the same thing about Peyton.  Why should we buy the same figure twice?
