Well crap.

Seeing as how there's a Walgreen's 5 minutes away from every other Walgreen's, I'm hoping this guy will be super easy to track down.  I wish they were just getting cases full of Fett though.  That other stuff will clog their pegs fast.

Was the Stormtrooper really out before Christmas last year?  Feels like he wasn't really out until 3-4 months ago.

Cap's black, and now Thor's a woman.  I honestly haven't enjoyed Marvel comics as much the last few years, so this is looking like a great stepping off point for me.  Utterly ridiculous that Marvel feels the need to pull stunts like this in place of anything remotely resembling character development. 

I actually loved a lot of the 80s stories, so have kept my subs going in the hopes of reconnecting with some of those great memories.  Billionaire Tony Stark defeating so many enemies only to slowly fall victim to the bottle, then rebuild his life and reclaim his armor?  Brilliant.  The original Secret Wars?  The Infinity Gauntlet?  Thor getting wounded and growing a beard?  Symbiote Spiderman/Venom?  These were classic character driven stories.  Marvel's shifted the players and copied some of the circumstances, but without any of the life or meaning behind them.  What a shame.

Love that new Cap costume.  Very cool.

I liked the last one better - seems a little noisy for Cap.

How do the clans work?  I've seen clan wars on other people's screens, but no idea how that plays out.  I've also seen guys with secret troops hidden in their castle, which I assume you can only get via clan members.

That one for $100. looks like he pulled the auction. A couple others did end on the lower/higher end.

US $24.50

I almost won that one.

$24.50...plus $20 shipping.  Yuck.

I play, my kids got me hooked. I've been in a clan for a while.

Same here.  Any time my son asks me for help in his games I end up getting sucked in.

I just started a few weeks ago, but am pretty hooked.  Same thing - heard about it from my son and got sucked in after helping him with his base.  I haven't tried clans yet, but would be game if anyone wants to set one up.  I have a few neighbors and other players that would likely join up.  A buddy at work is Level 80 and looking for a clan...

Speaking of comics, has anyone here ever unloaded some of theirs - or have suggestions on where to store things?  I've basically at this point filled up my supply of long/short boxes, and have them all stacked up in our office (which is also the collection room).  Although I do like to go through them every so often, as we've been trying to clean the house out a bit I've considered getting rid of some of them.  The vast majority are more recent (within the past 10 years), so I'm not sure there is necessarily a lot of value, but again I don't just want to throw them out either.

Brian - I had some storage issues a while back as well. I had all my comics bagged and boarded, and you'd be surprised at how much space the added protection takes up.  I ended up changing my storage from one comic/board/bag to two comics (front to back) per bag.  So, Issue #1 goes in the bag, issue #2 gets flipped backwards and goes in the same bag on the other side.  If I pick up the bag and rotate it, I can see the covers for both issues.  With the bag thicker and binder reinforcement on both sides, you don't need backing boards anymore, though I still use them every 20-30 issues to protect an anniversary or #1 issue sometimes.  I probably gained about 20% more storage per box with this method.  Might buy you a little more time.   ;)

There aren't too many cities I can work in and Chicago is worth the price.

Too many arrest warrants in the other big cities?

It has ended at a whopping $50,099.00.  Not bad for an auction which had a bin before of 25k! Oy!

WOW.  I just can't even imagine that.

Pass.  Any news Kubrick releases are dead to me.

Not a fan of the hideous movie bots.  If this was a redo of the G1 figures, I would be in trouble...

This is crazy.  I'm about to buy a new car and it's going to cost me a few hundred dollars less than this figure is about to cost (and probably thousands less once it's over).

That set of unproduced Droids and Ewoks is amazing though... any idea roughly how much a set like that costs to put together?  I'm assuming they're all real?

Better up the price of your car.  Its past $30k now with over a day to go.  That's nuts.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 3

I'm sure there's more to it than we are privy to.  It's unfortunate that they don't have a PR group interested in communication with the fandom to help us understand issues like this.  Without any information, all we can do is speculate on their assumed incompetence.
