Jocasta's Reading Room / Re: Best place to purchase new comics.
« on: June 18, 2003, 02:47 PM »
I still think to best way to purchase new comics is to find a comic shop near you and buy them there.  No shipping charges, new books every Wednesday, etc.  Most have a "club" you can join and they hold the books you want for you.  That way you don't have to go every week, you just do a pick up once or twice a month and pay for it then.

Wishing Well by Terrance Trent Darby

He claimed his album was going to be bigger than the Beatles Sgt. Peppers album.  After that, his career went down the crapper.

Can't wait.  Another 45 minutes of extra footage makes me one happy camper.  I'll pick up the theatrical edition when released and the EE also (like I did with FOTR).  The sneak peek of ROTK on the theatrical edition will hold me over until December - like the theatrical FOTR did for TT.  

I too hope for the "origin" scenes of Gollum.  The pics floating around the net were awesome.  I want to see more Ents and more Helms Deep.  Hopefully Faramir character gets fleshed out more and acts like his portrayal in the book - the complete opposite of Boromir. In the movie, he came across alot like Boromir - someone who feels like the Ring should be used as a weapon.

Wave 1 pieces were showing up at WalMart's as part of the "Best Of" assortment as recently as a month ago or so.  Might be worth checking out.

I have been, but WMs around here suck.  They have nothing Marvel wise but endless rows of the movie Hulk figs and crappy Spider Man classics figs.  Almost as bad as the Star Wars situation  ::)

Lots of Human Torch still around up here if you need it Mikey.  But about Namor?  You hit it right on the head.  Lots of Thing on the pegs, but I think he was overpacked.  Kinda like Iron Man ::)

Thanks, but no need.  I found Torchie and Namor last night at Gamestop for 50% off.  I got both for $10.50.  No Thing though.  (It would have been sweet if Thing and Doom were sitting in the clearance box, but oh well).  I'm not in panic mode yet about wave II and I'm going away for the weekend, so I'll definitely be looking for these things in another state.  For wave I, I might go to ebay.  I saw a few deals for a complete set that I might jump at.

Matt, the Falcon is around $30, the X-wing should be $15 and the Endor and Hoth sets should be around $8.  And KB is the only place I've seen these.

And if its not too much trouble, I'm in need of an Xwing set if you find an extra one.  My area ran out of them a long time ago.  I will of course pay you cost, tax and shipping.  Thanks.

Well, its started.  Picked up Thor and Hobgoblin last night.  The detail and articulation on these are amazing.

Wave III is everywhere, but II is starting to dwindle.  Last night all I saw was Namor (the Jango Pilot of Marvel Legends, can you say pegwarmer?)  I'm not too worried though.  I think I know where a Thing is and will go after work today to see if he's still there.

I'll see what I can dig up LJ.  I believe there's a ongoing thread over at dvdtalk that talks about all rumored and confirmed upcoming DVDs.  And I do believe Breakfast Club is on it.  (There is a bare bones one out now if you really want it)

Its definitely from ROTJ but no one has said it yet.  Someone was close with their answer.  It really is an obscure person.

If you're a fan of Pixar's flicks (Toy Story, Monsters, Inc., etc.) then go see Finding Nemo.

I too have the old one, but might upgrade.  I'll pass the old one along to my sister in law.

I'm almost postive special editions are coming for Goodfellas, Predator, Top Gun, Shawshank Redemption and Scarface.  Some of them might even have release dates already.

I'm happy with my Gladiator and SPR dvds so wouldn't upgrade them.  I wouldn't expect SEs for them anytime soon, though, Matt.  The current ones are both excellent.

Love it.  More colorful and vibrant, which will make it stand out better.  The artwork is fantastic (especially Boba's).  Much better than the face shot of the actual product of the previous Unleashed figs.
