Thanks Paul!  If you want to ship all the MN stuff together to save on cost/time, I'm happy to front their cost and distribute at our next meeting.  Or cool with you sending mine with one of theirs - whatever works easiest for you.  Just sent you a PM.  I think Dave is still waiting on one though, so we could hold off until you can get more.  Do you have any other MN guys on your wait list?

I just snagged my holy grail item.  ;D  ;D  ;D  I've been searching for one of these for years, but they rarely pop up on Ebay and the ones that do are either damaged or sell for crazy money.  This one is in great shape, almost 100% complete and even comes with the box.  Great way to kick off Throw-Back Thursday!

Nice opportunity for those carded figure collectors who want [need?] them...   pretty much a pass for everyone else I imagine.

At least the site says they have a free shipping promo going on today (promo code FREE15), so that helps a little.

I'm still a carded collector and these have ZERO interest to me. Perhaps it's collector fatigue, but I'd much rather put that $230 towards another 20 Disney build-a-droids for my collection instead of twelve carded variants of figures I already have.

+1  Every time I see a new post about these I get a little excited to go get them because they're carded and rare, and I haven't bought much star wars in what seems like forever.  But then I look at them and just have no interest.  The Amazon set was so crazy cheap in comparison - I think I already have 3 or 4 of those, so $230 for 6 repacks on new cards just isn't compelling enough. I'd rather do the Disney custom figure thing for half the price.

Nick that posting is hilarious.  It goes from what I thought was a bad translation to English over to some kind of Consumer Activist message to just pure rant about Paypal.  Then he ties it all up by basically stating that he knows he's fully aware of all the crazy he just wrote.  Funny stuff - thanks for sharing.

I thought the Finale was good, not great.  At least they wrapped up most of the loose ends.  Did you guys take from the ending that Draper returned to make the Coke ad?  It was mentioned earlier that he could come back and work on Coke, so that was my interpretation, but not sure if others had a different take.  Maybe Peggy made it or came from Joan's new production company?  Or just there to leave you wondering about any of those possible scenarios.

You're the best translator droid in the galaxy.  Thanks for clearing this up Jeff!

That's at DisneyWORLD right?  I thought someone posted these would only be available at DisneyLAND? 

I'm so totally confused about what I'm going to find at DW in a few weeks.

Sorry if that was confusing.  It's the five alien figures for about $20 + Free shipping or you can buy them individual for $3 + $3 shipping.  At $4 each I couldn't resist getting a five pack to harass the crew.  I set them up with the G.I. Joe R.H.I.N.O to represent the M577 Armored Personnel Carrier from Aliens.  Just need some Colonial Marines now!

Not at all what I wanted to hear.   :-\

Had time to like Friday and walked into a local comic shop...walked out with Secret Wars...interesting

Interesting that they are more or less doing a Secret Wars/Crisis mashup.   I haven't read any comics in years but I'm intereSted in where this is going

Funny, I had the opposite opinion.  I've been collecting Marvel FOREVER and the whole crisis/reboot thing may be my jumping off point.  It's become very clear to me over the years that comics like The Avengers have been little more than a marketing tool for the movies.  You need 12-24 issues to get through one story, often with gaping plot holes, missing information, and fairly poor storytelling.  They have all but wiped out the multiverse at this point and are now setting up battle world territories across the merged remaining universes, so Marvel Zombies have a plot of land, all the female characters have a plot of land, all the Thors have come together to police everything...pretty ridiculous stuff.  I might jump off following Secret Wars, then see what evolves over the next year.

If anyone is looking for extra Alien figures, there are a few guys on Ebay selling 5-packs for $20.  I just got mine on Friday and they quickly infested my Reaction display.

Pretty sure he will be playing the role of Black Goliath.  Here's a sneak peak from the set.

Yeah there was mind control from the the Witch but also during the scene where they start fighting in the tower when they have the Vision was the same thing that happened in Avengers 1.

I didn't take that as the gem causing them to fight.  That was more Tony Stark going off and attaching an AI to the android, which is basically what started the entire problem to begin with.


What was cool about the infighting this time is that it feels like a prelude to Civil War.  Not sure if they'll follow close to the comic, but the storyline *SPOILER* basically pits Iron Man's ideology against Cap's and everyone else takes sides.  In A2, you can see it start to spill over into the other characters as they align behind the team's two leaders.  The growing division between Steve & Tony's belief systems and the way they operate feels like added setup for Cap's next movie and I love that they tie the movies together in that way versus just springing some new, out-of-character approach to fit the plot.  The dynamic actually feels very similar to Anakin and Obi-Wan for me - practically brothers in a sense, but you can see the eventual rift growing between them.  Maybe I'm just adding unintended perspective based on what I think is coming, but its really well thought out if that's the direction they're taking.

Some casting news for Captain America - Civil War.  Marvel announced that Martin Freeman has been added to the cast in an undisclosed role.  And this TIME article lists other cast members who currently include:

Chris Evans as Steve Rogers / Captain America
Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark / Iron Man
Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow
Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson / Falcon
Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier
Frank Grillo as Brock Rumloe / Crossbones
Daniel Bruhl as Baron Zemo
Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton / Hawkeye
Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch
Chadwick Boseman as T'challa / Black Panther

Sounds a lot more like "Avengers" than Captain America.  I know these movies tend to have guest appearances from others, but that's a pretty big cast of heroes already.  I wonder how big a role Iron Man will play?  He had pretty much equal billing with Cap in the comic storyline.
