Cool.  Hopefully that's indeed the case...  I don't need any exclusive packaging, so that works just fine for me.  I was just concerned that it might be a slightly different paint scheme, or that there was some random little detail to set this one apart from the regular/chase upcoming version.

It is the same.  Trust me.  I have it right here.  It's the same.

Please tell me that it's the same...  Please.   :-\

Yes, it's the same.  You big girl. :P

Bon Scott was THE MAN.  IMO, AC/DC went downhill after his death.  Even though they made a fitting tribute to him with Back In Black, they didn't have his attitude anymore.  Only Bon could sing "Big Balls".

In general, many of the figures who wield lightsabers come with multiple hands.  One hand may have a lightsaber molded in, the other may not.  It's something of a new trend for this year.

jokabofe, can you confirm that the anakin and vader figs included in the press kit are identical to the regular wave 1 ROTS releases? i don't mean to doubt you nicklab, bit i figured jokabofe would be able to definitively confirm.

No offense taken.  You can read Jokabofe's article on the subject or you can read mine.

Mustafar Playset with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader action figures

Dave - did you get any indication what those disks are that Obi-Wan and Anakin are standing on? Are the figures FIXED to those disks or are they just stands that are thrown in with the playset?

I was working the event as well.  Dave caught me off-guard being somewhat more clean-shaven than when I saw him earlier in the week.

The Anakin and Obi-Wan figures are NOT attached to the discs.  The discs are actually set pieces from the duel, and elaborating any more would have spoiler implications.

Since it's an actual Press Kit and not just a figure, I would have to say they most likely will not be selling any extras. Although I guess you could always keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best.

Besides, if got a bunch of extras and tried to sell them via their site, it would be a disaster.

Word is that there were about 60, and that's it.  The figures are far from unique.

I can see on the side of the Anakin package that it says "Press Kit".

We're ******.   >:(

Yes, it's a press kit.  No, the figures are not unique.  They're the first Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader from the ROTS line.

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.

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.
