The Bullpen / Re: Avengers Infinite
« on: February 18, 2015, 12:56 PM »
Interesting find last night. 

Wandered into our largest grocery store called "Superstore".  It's part of a nationwide chain run by Loblaws and the chain stores go under a variety of names, depending on where you are in Canada.  It's kind of like a poor man's Costco, carrying everything under the sun minus the auto stuff, but in summer you can buy a lawnmower there if you like.  They always have a toy section too and I've bought some SW stuff there over the years.  It's always more expensive for toys though too. 

So I took my traditional walk through there and they had the old, crappy Marvel toys they've had for months.  But in the diecast cars section  ???  I stumbled across the latest wave of Marvel Infinite figures and was able to pick up Black Cat, Beast (blue) and both versions of Sandman.  I left behind the grey Beast, the black and neon green Spidey figure and the Hawkeye figure.  From what I could tell everything is 2x per case except Black Cat and Hawkeye. 

The bummer is the price.  These were a whopping $14.99  :o  so after tax they were a silly $16.94 per.  Ouch.  I'd been waiting to get them off HTS but they (all but spidey) disappeared last night from the site.  It's about all I collect these days so I sucked it up and bought them.  My understanding is that U.S. retail is going to be $12.99 on these so I guess it's not that far out of line with the tumbling Canadian dollar.

by edit: I looked around online and it's showing the wave to contain Bishop and Daredevil as well.  No sign of those guys at all on the pegs.  Could be I missed them.  That would suck, because Bishop would have brought me right up to date on what's been released.

At least we got a point...

Which our awful fourth line and horrid not-even-third pairing defense handed to you guys by acting like whiny bitches.  Ugh.  Complete giveaway right there.  Should have been a clean two. 

Evander who?

The age is about right and the expression is dead on after we've crapped the bed five games in a row...

And are in the midst of a pretty good feud/crisis if the rumors are true.

Just keep it up long enough for Parise/Dubnyk to carry my squad back into the picture, thanks!  :-*

Yeah.   :-\

I've defended Kane a lot in the past on other boards.  There's no real telling what actually happened or not but something clearly did happen.  I expect Kane won't play again for the Jets.  He's also on IR right now so that may hamper things.  He's certainly been playing injured, you can see it when you watch him. 

An eventual trade seems inevitable, along with a healthy dose of sour grapes afterwards.  He's our own little Seguin.  I'm just hoping we get decent value for him.  He should generate a decent return, but not what he once would have.

Hey Brent, I think I saw you on TV at the Jets game last night...

Chicago's pretty white at the moment.  At least 6-8" down already and projecting blizzard conditions from 4pm - 9pm tonight.  Can easily see 1.5-2' by the time it's all done.

Good luck East coast, it's coming your way next.

We've shipped all the snow south this summer.  Honestly, if we don't get snow in February then I'll be riding my bike to work in March without much hassle.  That happens about once every ten years or so the last time being around 2003.

Other Toy Lines / Re: 2013: What Are You Collecting?

At this point, dust.

LOL.  Not far off myself. 

Marvel Universe selectively though they're making it hard enough to find that I'm not collecting much anyway. 

Thinking about a Sideshow premium format Snowtrooper but hoping they sell out before I get around to it. 

That's about it.

Stayed away from the Sideshow Snowtrooper but gave in on the Gold Stormtrooper bust from GG  ::)

MU is about it now.  Really wanting to downsize, but too damn lazy to sell with all the horror stories from EBay.  In the back of my mind I think I'm just waiting until new stuff launches and collectors get a little crazy again filling holes with old stuff.  I hope.

I don't give a **** what her name is as long as she shows up in a skintight costume.  I've had the hots for Evangeline since Lost.  Pretty awkward during the last two Hobbit films where I got wood because she was dressed as an elf.

 ;D

I think the Canadians have passed on to a different club now  :o

Congrats Scott, I echo the ghost's sentiments wholeheartedly.

Gas was anywhere from $4.25 (resort pricing) down to $2.99 (Costco) in Hawaii but it's always ballparking Canadian prices anyway.  Currently $0.86 per liter here, or $3.44

Aloha from the Big Island all.

Nice!  I've been to Oahu and Maui which were both fantastic.  But I hear the Big Island is amazing.  Are you going to go check out that lava flow in Pahoa?

Likely we will.  We saw the flow two years ago when it was going into the ocean so this might be a little less visually exciting but still cool.  We were on Maui last week.   :)

The Big Island is probably our favourite (haven't been to Kauai yet) because it's so diverse and there's so much to do.  The only problem lies in the name - it is very big.  Where you can drive around the other islands and never really be that far away from anything here it's heck of a drive to most places.  We're currently 2 hours one way from Pahoa largely because the beaches and weather are far better on this part of the island (Waikoloa in the south Kohala district).  So if we go see the lava flow we're looking at a really long day but it would be worthwhile.
