Just a question for those of you who have gotten the delay notice: have your checks already been cashed?  Not to be nitpicky, but if they cashed the check and THEN sent out the delay notice, isn't that a little bit shady, or am I being a little too paranoid?

Also, isn't the very idea of a "sneak preview" figure supposed to be that you have it well before the actual main line hits?  If they're waiting until the last week of July to send this out, it's going to be hitting just as or immediately after the rest of the stuff hits, thus making the entire thing pretty pointless.   :-\

My checks have all cashed.  From the sound of it, I think Hasbro planned to be sending them out sooner, but there was some sort of production delay.  If they're like most big corporations, finance and production don't interact much, so its likely that finance just went ahead with business as usual, thinking these would ship on time.

Just for pictures. Unfortunately, these are going in a box after one more photo shoot attempt next week.

Nice collection.  How come they're going into a box?  ???

Space issues. If I'm going to be able to display a large army, I'd rather it be my imperials.

Speaking of which, will we be seeing your imperial army in the near future?  The clones are impressive, but I somehow thought you had an aven bigger collection based on your purchase posts.  I'm guessing the Imperials are a much larger lot!

FYI - E News reported that Iron Man 2 already has a planned release date of April 2010.  ;D

We noticed that too, I said, "hey, it's the Millennium Falcon!" and my wife said "Is that the new one you want?" to which I replied... "uh, no, the one that's coming out is like three feet long..." and then she stopped talking to me for some reason. :-X

Thanks, LOST!

That's hilarious.   ;D  I noticed the Falcon and called it out while we were watching too, but haven't said jack to my wife about a $150 version coming out in the near future.

Here's the clip

Awesome.  Thanks for posting.  I'm a little bummed that they went with Ultimates Fury instead of old school howling commandos Fury, but very excited to see the Avengers someday!

You think you're the only ************* superhero in this world?

Did he actually say that in your version?  The ************* wasn't there in the one I saw.

Sweet movie, BTW.  :)  Great blend of action and humor.  And seeing the different phases of armor for the first time geeked me out big time.

I haven't seen it, but I think he was just using the SJ's trademark expletive.  I certainly hope he didn't actually use that word - would be way out of character.

Great job of acting - I hope this guy gets cast in more Sci Fi stuff once BG is done.

More Sci Fi? I want to see him in bigger things, and not just sci-fi... the guy is a really good actor. Definitely someone I could see doing great in a war movie or summer action movie.

I just refer to the general genre of action flicks these days as sci-fi.  I'd be fine if it was a war or some other kind of action movie, though I'd base my decision to see such a movie on the premise of the story, not whether or not he's in it.

Sweet!  I like the layout.  Is this a permanent display or are you just setting up for pictures?

If you download the trailer at the bottom of the link you should get the clock/timer.

But the scene is where The Joker is addressing all the thugs around the table. There is one guy who's head is down on the table, "Eric" looks to be the guy sitting right next to him.

Wow, I see him now - good eyes!  Your attention to detail is admirable my friend.   :-*

A lot better than last weeks.  You can tell they're winding down the series as well with all the long time characters they're killing off. Bummer they got rid of that sergeant.

You mean the sergeant that was so well loved that you can't remember her name?   ;)  I just watched the last episode online last night and roughly twelve hours later, i can't remember her name either.  I'm fairly happy with Season 4 so far and defiitely don't miss anyone that's been knocked off to date.

As for Helo, he is just about my favorite character after last night.  I thought the conflict wasn't so much in his friendship with kara, but that he is military through and through and you do not break orders regardless of your personal feelings.  I think the conflict in him was going against what he "knew" was the right thing to do versus disobeying an order, which goes against the very essence of his character.  Great job of acting - I hope this guy gets cast in more Sci Fi stuff once BG is done.

The new trailer is up  8)

Also look at the 00:31 mark on the left side of the screen. Is that Eric Roberts?

Looks good.  I didn't realize Harbey Dent was going to be such a big part of the story. 

I don't have any kind of clock on the trailer I saw (?) but I timed about 30 seconds in and didn't seem to see anyone that looked like Eric Roberts.  What is going on in the scene you're referencing?

So, I wonder if they will tie in The Avengers and a rampaging Hulk somehow in to this mix?

Thor and Captain America both have movies coming, add in Wasp and someone else and instant classic

I thought the next one in line was an Ant Man movie - anyone know if that has changed following the writer's strike?

Great trade with Jack, not Jill,
Who went up the hill
To fetch me loads of Scouts

His figures were great
And did not arrive late
So for trades with Mike, have no doubts.  ;)

Looking forward to more trades soon - thanks buddy!

I got my notice today as well. no big deal, not too excited for the figure yet anyway

Got two notices today as well.  I'm a little surprised that I got two different notices, but ordered four figures - you'd think they would either send four notices or just one?  ???
