The Bullpen / Marvel Legends

When I saw the initial images of the first appearance Hulk, I thought that it was really the grey Hulk's retarded little brother  ;)  But after seeing those images in the review, I'm still kind of hopeful.  The grey Hulk, at least in his return in the late 80's or early 90's was actually a pretty interesting character.  This isn't quite that character (and no, I didn't like Joe Fixit), but it's a step in that direction.

Nightcrawler looks good, too.  It's good to see the ranks of the X-Men getting filled out a little more.  I didn't see it, but did he come with a little "bamf" cloud as an accessory?

The one problem I have with this series?   These damned Galactus parts are going to make this series the death of me.  If they start putting unique parts for Galactus in with the chase figures, I'm gonna lose it on Toy Biz.

No Devils again.  Meh.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Any OTC you never saw at retail?

The only OTC I haven't seen are some of the POTC pieces.  Namely, the Biker Scout and Sandtrooper.  Good luck finding those, huh?!

Spree and Melo club exclusives are up for any fans of McFarlane basketball figures.

Sprewell - I need to feed my family!

Carmello Anthony in a butt-ugly uni.

Yawn.  The NBA line really hasn't interested me much at all.  Even one of the NBA's biggest stars, Shaquille O'Neill, wound being a pegwarmer.

I think my general level of interest in Sports Picks as a whole has declined.  There are just too many toy lines vying for my attention in general, and I think the local players have been dominating my purchases with these lines.  Well, if I can save a little money it certainly isn't a bad thing.

It was cool to meet up with Jokabofe tonight.  Like I was saying when we met, making trades in the parking lot of toy stores always makes me think of poorly planned drug deals.  Still it was awesome to meet someone local from the forum. Hope to see you this weekend at Toy Fair.

Met up with Jokabofe tonight to trade off some of my extra Bust Ups.  Everything went cool!  Good to meet you, too, Dave.

Yeah, I was surprised to get 4 Bust Ups in that box.  I'm not complaining in the least.

For once I can say....

Happy Valentine's Day!

 ;D ;D ;D ;D

Just got home from a night out with the girlfriend.  It was our first Valentine's Day together, and dinner was great.  The restaurant was awesome, and we had a great evening.  So I think maybe I don't hate Valentine's Day after all.

Considering this happened very close to where a lot of my family lives, this story made me sick.  What the hell did this guy need with an assault rifle?

I got the rifle version.

Got Aurra Sing.  Haven't seen the others yet, but I'm not in that much of a hurry.

You lucky bastard!

Nice score though.  At least we'll have one in the JD family now...   :P

What am I, chopped liver?

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Hasbro Article, CNN/Money
« on: February 14, 2005, 01:20 PM »
I think at some point Lucas will rerelease all the films again.  Probably at a time when he thinks the franchise has died down a bit.  That or they will whip up an animated Star Wars movie.

Bottom line is that there is too much money to be had with this franchise.  It's going to continue in some way shape or form.  Otherwise I doubt Hasbro would stay on until 2018. 

Most likely, there's going to be a complete Boxed Set released on DVD.  I would say in 2007 at the earliest.  That may be prefaced by a theatrical release of all 6 movies.

Hmmm, I wonder if James Earl Jones might be on hand to autograph one of these bad boys at C3?  Hmmmm.
