Point of curiosity:  did anyone ever wind up seeing the Berserker Troll from ROTK?  Was it just incredibly rare, or did it just not come out?

I like the overall concept.  Not crazy about Deathlock, mainly because I don't know the character all that well.  I also think that the whole Galactus idea is one of the only ways they could get casual collectors to buy a Doctor Strange figure.

I have mixed feelings on the Hulk figures.  I've always loved the character.  When the rumors started circulating about the wave I was actually kind of excited to get a grey Hulk.  But the whole "first appearance" thing skews the look.  Hence, this Hulk looks a lot more like the Hulk did when Marvel launched the comic in the 60's.  I'm hoping that Toy Biz revisits the modern grey Hulk at some point in the Marvel Legends line.  I thought the period in the 90's where the Hulk went grey was really interesting, and Hulk was a deeper character with different motivations instead of the green, raging Hulk's motto of "Hulk smash"!

It's kind of funny that only two people are trash talking and there are 4 people left in the playoffs.  Hmmm.

Not so much nostalgia as much as necessity.  I was amazed to find that I didn't have a carded version of the first Anakin Skywalker figure.  Why?  Well I started getting into MOMC collecting some time during the EPISODE I line, and I thought I had this piece.  So when the time came that Jake Lloyd was making a signing appearance in my area, this was the figure I wanted to get signed.  So did I?  Nope.  I couldn't find one as hard as I tried, so I had him sign Padawan Anakin.  Oh well.

I was able to order one as well, and it's 3 PM eastern.

You remember that little nugget I copied and pasted from The GD a few months back? About some TRUs not carrying ML and LOTR anymore?

Well, that's the case. It has struck my TRU as well, and since they aren't a player anymore, there is absolutely NO new LOTR around here.

Same thing happened by me.  But in the case of my local store they stopped carrying Marvel Legends but kept on carrying LOTR.  What's even more bizarre is that this store was the second leading seller of Marvel Legends in the Toys R Us chain.  No wonder TRU is in financial trouble.

I was just re-watching the Trilogy over the past few days, and here's another figure that could stand to be done:  The Numenorean Soldiers from the Prologue!  We've got Prologue figures like the Prologue Elf Warrior, Elrond, Gil Galad, Sauron, Elendil and now Isildur.  The Numenorean soldiers look pretty cool, too.

Ya think?

Darth Maul is on the way, though.  Ray Park was in for a visit and a scan at Gentle Giant this past summer, so Darth Maul can't be far behind.

Ok we all know that most of us here would have, in a heartbeat, appeared in one of the Prequel films, even Episode 1. I have a few questions though, that I don't think have been asked before!!

1. Would you want an action figure based on your obscure character??


2. Would you want a figure of yourself, even if it was as a human character, not an alien??

Yeah.  A small measure of immortality like that is kind of appealing.

3. Would you go to those Star Wars cons and autograph the thousands of pics and or figures the fans present to you??

Having met a lot of the people who do this, I think so.  The fans I've come across who go to the autograph booths are pretty cool.

4. What about the thousands of photos they would ask to take with them??

5. Would you quit your job to do the cons full time??

Probably not.  I don't think it would be THAT lucrative.

6. What would be your limit as to appearances??
Travel and accomodations.  Pretty much the standard deal.

Cool.  I guess I'll have to hunt for that one.

I thought the PJ figure was shipping in a Fellowship 10-pack.  Am I incorrect?

Isildur is the FOTR figure I REALLY want.  Such a pivotal character in the Prologue, and they've waited to do him until now?!

The error is going around.  Check out this article with some info from Gentle Giant on the subject.

FWIW, I'm still interested.

Boussh isn't a rumor, it's fact.  Gentle Giant showed a prototype of it at Wizard World Chicago.  They weren't allowing photographs though.  Darth Maul is also in the pipeline in the not-so-distant future as well.
