I'm just glad to know that Wisconsin does produce literate Cheeseheads, Justin.  ;)

Hey, I resemble that remark!   >:( ;)

A lot of the Targets near me just went through a reset and I don't see a spot for Iron Man in the main aisle.  I don't think they planned on it selling this well, which is retarded because my kids could have predicted Iron Man would be more popular than Speed Racer (which still has two displays and a main aisle location)  >:(  Even better - Iron Man is on sale this week @ $7.99/figure.  Way to go guys.

''We're not going to reveal it in the first episode of the season, and we're not going to reveal it in the last. It's somewhere in between.''

That was it!  Thanks for proving that I'm not insane AND literate.  ;)

I am thinking we'll get the fifth revealed in ep. 9.

I thought I read somewhere it won't be until the final ep of the series. I'll have to see if I can find the source of that. I would think that the 4 would be revealed to the humans/Cylons before we figure out the final one.

Pretty sure I read the opposite somewhere, but I think it was in EW and we toss those weekly.  I recall the writers saying they wouldn't make us wait till the end - that it would be revealed sometime mid season.

That is Stature from the Young Avengers AKA Cassie Lange (Scott Lang's daughter).  She's inherited his size changing ability, so I wanted a Giant Man sized version of her.

The whole figure is a FF Jessica Alba, not just the head.  I had a customizer from Fwoosh make it for me way back when the Young Avengers box set came out.  That set only included Hulking, Super Patriot, Wiccan, and Iron Lad (who was in what, 3 issues?), so I wanted to add Cassie and Kate to round out the team.  Vision is part of the team as well, though he's not very different from the original.  Wiccan's brother Speed joined the team later on as well, but it was near the end of the series, so I've let him go...for now. 

The guy who made my Kate Bishop, Tigra, and Mockingbird is also making me a Crystal and Sersei, which should just about finish up my Avengers squad.  I also had a spare Epic Force Leia and a Mystique sitting around, so I'm seeing what he can do for a Slave Leia as well. The only remaining figs I'd probably add to this group down the road are Quasar (90's male version) and maybe the old school Swordsman.

How about some link love for the site that originally posted the images?  POTF2.COM Forums.

Well technically he found them on RS and when you go to RS, they reference POTF2.com, so I think we're all legally covered.   ;)

I'm pretty happy with previous releases of all of these.  I'd much rather see mini connectible playsets than any new beasts/creatures.

I'm not saying I'm unhappy with articulation in the basic line - I definitely think they've upped their standards in the last year.  Just not sure how many of them would qualify as SUPER articulated as the previous posters were commenting.  I am hoping we see the newer comic pack figs on par with basic fig mobility.

Okay, recently got a few new Avengers customs from a guy on Fwoosh named Flobbo.  They are too awesome not to share, so enjoy...

First up is Tigrrrrrra.  No, that is not a stripper pole in the last shot - its part of my Detolf Cabinet. No really!






Next is Mockingbird.  I am a big Hawkeye fan, and you can't have the Hawk without the Bird.  In an unrelated story, I'm also a Badgers fan, so I like to give the bird to the Hawkeyes.





The last one is Kate Bishop (AKA Hawkeye II) from the Young Avengers.  Got a custom Stature, so I needed Kate to finish off the team.  I got this one from Flobbo as well, but its almost a year old now.



And here they are mixed in with my Avengers diorama.  While not Flobboriginals, be on the lookout for custom Starfox, Black Knight, Diamondback, Scarlet Witch, Spiderwoman, and Stature.

Totals so far
January - $180
February - $130
March - $495
April - $99
May - $228

YTD - $1132  :o :o :o :o :o

Does this total even include the Joe Mauers?  ;)

I'm betting no Mauers are in there.  And since he's getting $2.50 figures and using the $5.00 coupons, that's over 500 figures!    :o

I just burned through this one in three hours today. I read it several times as a kid but I wanted to reread it before I see the film.

Three hours!?  How many pages is this?  I read this series like 20 years ago, but they sure seemed like longer stories back then...Or maybe you're just a speed reader!  ;)

Congratulations Chris - there is nothing like it.  Try to not show them any of the SW movies until they're at least 6 months old.   ;)

Vintage Kenner / Re: The Vintage Star Wars Card Offer Grid
« on: May 18, 2008, 11:38 AM »
Hey folks.  I just wanted to let you all know about a little feature that we've worked on at ToyTraderz that I think you'll all like.  It's the Vintage Star Wars Card Offer Grid...basically a big grid of each figure and each card offer that it might come on. 


I have a Hoth Luke with Ackbar offer - where do we send them in?

Also, I have a Leia as Boussh Rotj Card with an offer that is not in your grid.  Is a blue circle sticker with yellow border and just reads "Return of the Jedi Figure Offer" with no picture.  Says the same thing below it in another language, but its not a tri-logo card.  On the back, offer is for Nein Nunb.  I can take photos of both and send them in if you want them.   ;)
