Evenflow - where in the country are you located?  Has there been any sign of these in the midwest region yet?  I'm already tired of hitting up Walgreens stores around the metro

Not me.  I'm always towards the back.  Drafting 3rd this year was a treat!

Nope, sounds cool though.  Scott - thanks for the invite last night.  Your whole clan is several months ahead of where I am, so I don't want to bring you guys down.  I'll do some catching up and maybe rejoin later.  I've only been playing a few months now.

Are these always showing up in those little sidecap thingys?  That's where I've seen the other "collector" figures, at least for the most part.

I've seen the Game of Thrones figures on both the sidecap and in the main aisle.  Just depends on the store I think.

If you connect up via Facebook you should be able to find meon your friends page (under the trophy icon)...that is how Dale did it

There are a ton of Winterfell clans :(

I found you, but don't have enough trophies to enter.  Your limit is set at 1600 even though you have guys in the clan below that.  I've been hovering around 1200 to get more resources, so will take me a while to build up enough to join.   :-\

I fought in my first clan war this week, having joined my neighbor's clan.  We conducted 9 attacks out of a possible 20 - crazy bad participation.  Bah.

Well deserved.  I finally saw it over the weekend and it has to be one of my top five favorites of all Tim.  Great action, solid story, fun. Characters.  I loved it.

That was a while ago I think.  $400 for the AT-ST Driver doesn't feel too far off, though more than I'd pay.  The Hoth Trooper at $350 is ridiculous - it should be half that.  Of course, these things are pretty rare, so if they're the only ones being offered, that can significantly jack the price.

That's a great price for the Han!

I've only been able to get a few from stockroom locations, and it looks like most Targets have sold thru their one case.  I found one at TRU about a week ago, so might want to try there.  Of course it suffered from the bent visor issue, so I passed on it.

She's from that Pretty Little Liars show I think.  Not worth looking further IMHO.

Anyone else a Minka Kelly fan?  We started watching the old Friday Night Lights show on Netflix last month and I just can't get enough of her.

Im RyanMan12 I have been actively collecting for 2 years. I am trying to complete the Vintage collection.

Welcome Ryan!  Like the username.  Are you in the Twin Cities?  What do you collect beyond VC and Black Series stuff?

Welcome new guy!  Kind of steep prices for stuff that's still shipping, but I guess it evens out with the free shipping.   ;)

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Comic Book Thread
« on: August 18, 2014, 04:28 PM »
The comic books are insignificant from a business perspective. 

They're totally different divisions with different profit targets and business plans. Obviously the general movie audience is bigger than small percent of comic readers.  Cheerios is ridiculously larger than Frankenberry cereal - doesn't mean Frankenberry doesn't have it's own business plans for growth.  I don't think anyone is suggesting that the movies have or should change to map to the comics are they?   ???

As I was saying, the comics have historically tried to link to what we see in the movies as the familiar look of the characters may draw in new readers from the significantly larger movie audience.  Since we've seen so much of this from Marvel, there's obviously some shift in the philosophy/strategy on the comic side to roll out Black Cap and Thor Lady when the movie side is at the top of it's game with the original characters.

and they even replaced Nick Fury with Nick Fury Jr. to get the Sam Jackson look. 

Did not know this and checked out an image... really?  He's got the eye patch, too?

Yeah, pretty ridiculous if you ask me.  Crusty old white Fury was such an integral part of the Marvel U for decades.  At least there's an explanation behind his change.  Hawkeye just shows up with shades instead of a mask mid-storyline for the Avengers.   ::)
