Hmm, Shane as The Punisher? I dunno, I guess I don't quite see it, but maybe he can pull it off.

I have faith in Marvel, but feel kinda the same.  Shane was such a hillbilly, wheras Castle seems a bit more Urban to me. 

Argh.  Last year the Thanos set was impossible to get and all I wanted was Starfox.  This year all I want is Magik.  Stupid multipack exclusives.  If anyone by chance wants all the figures except Magik, please let me know and I'd be happy to offset the cost.

**EDIT - I'd be game for Hela too if anyone just wants the other three.

thanks for the tip.  I couldn't find any coupon codes, but ordered a few from the latest waves.  Sounds like Target raised their prices on theses, so I guess the $9.99 is already a screaming deal.   ::)

I caught the first few episodes of Wayward Pines this weekend and it was pretty solid.  For those that haven't heard of it, a Secret Service guy wakes up in WP, Idaho and can't get out of the town.  There's active debate as to whether he is hallucinating things due to a medical condition or if the weirdness he sees is real.  The townspeople are all really weird and clearly hiding something.  It has that early-on LOST vibe where you're just not sure what is going to happen next or what in the world is going on.  Definitely worth a watch if you liked shows like Lost or True Detective.

PM Sent on just about everything.   ;)

Thanks guys.  I will post some better pictures when it arrives.  Unfortunately the seller had not disabled Ebay's new standard Global Shipping Program, so I I have to wait for her to send the package to a local distribution center, then I'm sure I'll be waiting 4-6 weeks for it to arrive on a canoe despite having to pay another $30 in shipping.  Someone should sue Ebay for fraud with that program.

I kind of wish they had brought you-know-who back at the end as filmed.  He was shaping up to be cooler than I expected.  The extra Hulk scene would have been cool as well.

I also found Han Taun Taun at Target!

Nice score.  Did you happen to notice if the DPCI is different from the Jabba/Scout Troopers?

Letterman's final top ten was great, with a different "star" offering up each line.  I thought some of the A-Listers didn't seem happy with his gushing over Peyton Manning, which made it that much more funny.  Good stuff - he will be missed.

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.
