Another great shot of Curiosity & its parachute taken from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on the descent.
mother**** Hasbro. I just picked up a set of the new TMNT figures from Playmates for $8.99 each from Target. Way more plastic, more articulation, more weapons, and a better price point. If Playmates can put out TMNT figures like that for $8.99, Star Wars guys should be $6.99, tops.
I am pretty sure they do not have more articulation - I know for a fact most dont have ankles and many have no knees on top of that. More plastic? yes, but I havent inspected them enough yet to even say they are all unique sculpts - I am talking turtles here. hi def pics here http://www.itsalltrue.net/?p=19490 . It looks like the shells and the heads are the only thing different to me.
With Star Wars there is licensing costs, likeness costs, and, if it is not a clone, all unique, super articulated sculpts - with WAY more paint details.
I read a review that stated they each have different sculpts. Michaelangelo in particular is smaller than the other turtles (since he's supposedly the youngest).
Plus, this looks like a lot more articulation to me.
I prefer the NECA turtles from a few years ago, based on the comics...but this is already way off-topic.
I saw the Helicarrier thing at TRU the other day. It looked a lot smaller than I expected, and kind of silly because it was so small. It was $69.99. They had two of them.
Anybody else having a tough time finding a movie version of Cap? I figured he'd be somewhat of a pegwarmer, so I put off picking one up when the line first hit. But now all I see is the Super Shield version and an occasional rocket launcher concept version. I've seen way more unmasked rocket launcher versions than I have movie versions lately.
Waiting to go see it for a week or two... Pittsburgh only crows this much about anything when it's sports related, and so there's no way I'm going to overcrowded theaters and dealing with BatNerds (what kind of loser obsesses over a film franchise! ).
Seriously I'll wait this out... The kids want to go though, so we'll wind up going at some point. Gonna sit and watch the first two this weekend with everyone, hopefully, and so they're kinda caught up on what's what, and who's who. They keep coming to me asking questions like I'm a Batman afficionado... I need to introduce them to Jim and let him just explain all this stuff.
Jimmy Fallon's pardody of the trailer with Pee Wee Herman voice-over was funny though. I wonder if P.W. liked it?
FINALLY got Comcast hooked up and now have access to AMC! Does anyone know if they reply Walking Dead episodes? I missed all of Season 2 and want to get caught up. I know they had a marathon a few weeks back - anyone know if they have another on the way? I thought someone said Comcast had this On Demand as well, but I don't see it under TV series.
I still think after watching the marathon last weekend the reason they stayed so long on the Farm was due to the changes they made, keeping shane around when he died earlier in the comics and by having Sophia getting lost and ending up a walker, she's still alive in the comics as well as Dale.
Not sure where you are in the comic series, but Dale died a while ago. He was killed in the "Hunters" storyline...
Sad news about G, but I knew they were going to get rid of someone big. Kirkman has said this is "Rick's story," so you know it isn't him. Andrea's too interesting/useful and Michonne is too big a fan favorite. That doesn't leave them with too many other big names, so G was a pretty likely choice. I'm always a little bummed when a good character dies in WD, but it is a Zombie story and they have to keep it high stakes to keep it interesting.
