Cripes, release a 2-pack Catwoman and Batgirl and see how that sells DC!  I relaly don't think toy manufacturers are paying attention.

What's up with so many Punishers & where's the mutants?

I'm not wild about the selections, but I'm just fine with no mutants ont he list.  X-Men have had more than their fair share of figures over the years as far as I'm concerned.  That being said, I'd take some better known figures over Iron Fist or Ronin.  I'm also not a big fan of the Punisher, but he seems to be popular with the toy makers for some reason.

We need a Bears win and a Vikings loss this weekend. . .

What a beautiful game last night.  Kudos to the Pack for giving us a good game while still hurting the Vikes playoff chances and getting the Packers a better draft pick next year.  I love it!

Time to fire Mangini. I hope they lose next week against Miami.

And I hope they win.

(And I feel dirty for saying it)

I don't think any team any where deserves to go winless.  I've been rooting for the Lions for the last month now, for all the good it's done them.   :P

Reading through the forums over at AFI, and it looks like Mattel is gauging collector reaction to some potential 2-packs for 2009 (including some harder to find figures from DCSH).  They have offered them to online retailers to see the preorder numbers (you can see a pic of the Batman/Clayface pack at BBTS).  Anyways, here's the proposed lineup (more details at the AFI linky):
Batman vs Clayface

Batman will be in his black and gray costume with "mud splatter" effects. Clayface will be an exact reissue of this hard to find figure.

Superman vs Brainiac

This is proposed as a standard Superman figure (Eradicator head on the Wave 6 Superman body with red heat vision eyes) vs. Classic Brainiac (green head) with an all new head and coller piece. Brainic will come armed with Luthor's gun from the 2007 figure.

Supergirl vs. Luthor

This will be a reissue of the Blue outfit Kara Supergirl and the power suit Lex, but perhapes with a little surprise in the accessories!

Golden Age Hawk Pack

Two new figures to start your golden age collection.

They don't sound too bad to me really, taking into consideration that most of the 2 packs will usually contain a repacked/"tweaked" figure.

These sound awful.  I will pass on all of them.  Since when are Batman and Superman hard to find figures from DCSH?  They should re-release Catwoman, Batgirl, Nightwing, etc.

Two superbowl wins in other leagues today and my third depends on Ryan Grant getting 50 combined yards or more.  Come on Packers!

Midley tempting, but not a difficult pass at those prices.

Mo' Kudos to Jay for meeting up with me to hand over the White Vader Comic Pack and Wave 3 figs tonight.  Jay's transport service easily rivals that of the Falcon - we were able to avoid any Imperial entanglements despite my poor parking job.  ;D

Gimme a ******* break.  "You can only give it to a guy so many times"?  You mean the guy who scored 7 touchdowns in the preceding two weeks?  A goalline stand by a D that prevents a running back from scoring invalidates any attempts for the rest of the game?  Shake yer head.  I'm happy you won your games in other leagues, but honestly, do you think your logic stands up in the real world?  Go look at a game on tv and see your conclusion fail miserably.  Inability to score?  Sure, ok.   ::) was a joke Brent.   :-*

On a serious note, they did give it to him at the 2 and I was surprised he didn't get it again at the 1, but the clock was running down and I don't think they wanted to risk a running play.  They never got that close again int he 3rd and didn't need to wear him out playing him in the 4th quarter.  It sucks, but it happens I guess.  Maybe the coaching staff figured he had gotten more than his share of the action the last few weeks and wanted to get other players involved?  Or maaaaybe it was just my mojo hex on him that ruined his luck for the week.

Nice week to have Rhodes and Clark on my fantasy teams!  Indy is going to win a few people fantasy superbowls this week - nice to see them come back to life even if it had to wait 15 weeks into the season.

It would have been had the Eagles ever bothered to hand the ball off tonight... :-X

Even when they were up the entire game they still had Donovan throwing picks. With as many trips to the RZ as Philly had I still can't believe they didn't give it to him at all.

What are you talking about?  They gave it to Westbrook at the 2 yard line and he couldn't get it in - you can only give a guy so many chances.  I had two games riding on Westbrook NOT scoring, so thanks to his inability to score, I'm playing in three Superbowl games this week.  Woohoo!

Yeah I call crap on the Batman news too.
Bale has said repeatedly there is no way he will be there if there is a Robin involved.
And the casting for the Riddler Pfft

I call Shenanigans!  There is no way that Eddie Murphy was signed to Batman 3 and no way Shia is coming in as Robin. I do love the idea of Depp as the Riddler though if that rumor is accurate.

I won't miss KB Toys given that they've been extinct in Minnesota for years now.  What I do miss in general though is a toy shop somewhere at the mall.  I don't get how stores that sell just magnets or ties or socks seem to be able to make it, but a toy store can't?  I think they should have just relaunched the stores instead of closing the doors, but oh well.
