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.

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?

I saw the Fantastic Four box set at a comic shop tonight.  Nice!  I had never seen Doctor Doom's face closeup before, and this Doom has a scarred, ugly face.  Nice touch!  The differences on the characters who have been done before (Doom, Thing, Johnny & Reed) all appear to be appreciable, and it makes this set all that much more attractive to me.  I'll be getting this when it's at regular retail.

I got him in a trade and barely even looked at it.  Just put it in a box set to go to the storage space.  I gotta start looking at these a little more.  Just have 3 left in NFL 8 now:  Manning, Lewis & Brown variants.

Check out some more of Aurra Sing here

I held off on some items in the past and got burned.  Case in point, the EPISODE I Jabba the Hutt with 2-headed announcer.  I saw it at retail once, thought "Oh, I can buy is later", and it didn't show up again.  That was one of the only instances where I really got burned.

With figures, especially with a select few that have been HTF, I've bought them as soon as possible.  After all, there were some I just never saw at retail.  Case in point, the last wave of Clone Wars.  Never saw it!  Thankfully I was able to trade for them.  That mentality of getting the figures ASAP has helped in numerous instances.  Like the Toy Fair Darth Vader fiasco, the Jorg Sacul figure, Ephant Mon, the McQuarrie Stormtrooper, etc.

But now, several years older and wiser, I'm conciously holding off on the Millenium Falcon.  I don't think they're all going to sell right away.  The pricetag is a little prohibitive for that.  Plus, I'm in the stores often enough to recognize when things start to disappear.  Here's to hoping it goes on clearance at Target around Christmastime!

I've been pretty selective.  I only started getting into this last year when I lucked out and got the blue Clone Trooper bust at Wizard World in Chicago.  I'm focusing mainly on masked characters, and then on characters I like.  I definitely have some serious backtracking to do, and I'm looking to get Vader, Yoda and both Fett's now.  I wish I knew then what I know now.

I don't know about that.  Texas has been pretty hot.  I think it'll be the A's winning the west, but Texas bringing in the wild card.

So, anyone here going to be attending this show?  I met Dustrho at this show last year, and it's always cool to meet other forum members.

I can't wait to see the IG-88 bust in person this weekend.  I wonder if the Gentle Giant guys would mind if I "borrowed" theirs?  ;D

I hope Gentle Giant has some news for us at Wizard World this coming weekend about the Bust Ups line.  I'd love to know what the third wave is going to be like.

I was very happy with this set.  Having them not blindpacked made it a lot easier to get a set.  I even scored a set for $20.  Not bad, IMO.  The Yoda looks like it might be big enough to stand in for a 3-3/4" scale Yoda.  Very cool, even if he isn't very posable.

I just read there is a 12" Randy that true?  And if so I may want one!

Yeah.  I've seen it in the store a couple of times.

The big news today is about the Pro Bowl Clinton Portis that went on sale today.  It's only at, and at the cheap price of $19.99 each.  :o
