The Bullpen / Marvel Legends

MarvelousNews has pics up of the SDCC exclusive Shanna/Kazar/Sabu set from Marvel Legends.

On a side note, does anyone know everything (in the 6" scale anyways) that will be out for the Iron Man movie stuff this weekend?  I'm only planning on picking up a Mark 3 version for my Legends display, but I was curious what exclusives there were.  From memory, I thought it was:

Target (Silver Centurion repaint of Mark 3)
Wal-Mart (War Machine repaint)

Is that right, or does TRU have something as well?  I'm curious how "big of deal" the Iron Man launch will be.  I'm looking forward to having a nice, shiny Iron Man in the collection though (I just have the Face Off version).

MUST GET SHANNA.  Wow, nice job for a change!  Kazar might make a nice Heman custom as well.  Not sure of the Exclusives for IM, but both sound cool.  Hopefully they will be available in ample supply.

Are these supposed to be released soon? or was it May?

In stores April 15th.  But to pick Tax day as a street date?  Strange.

Actually, that's a good time to pick, since a lot of people will know the amount of their tax return by that date.  A lot of industries see a spike in sales around this time, so makes sense to advertise/release your new prods in conjunction with tax returns.  ;)

Not sure if this has been posted 100% legit and can be used over and over again until October.  Hope it helps  ;).




Has this thing worked for anybody?  Wanted to get an evo pack and figured might as wel buy a Joe with this which almost be a dollar and change for him if it works.

This has been tested by several of us in Minnesota and Wisconsin - don't think anyone has had it refused yet.  I've probably used it 6 or 7 times now and the cashiers haven't batted an eye.  ;D

It doesn't suck to me. It's not like I was going to put it in a walking mode anyhow. So you can either make it stand tall with the third leg undeployed wrapped up underneath or stand short with the third leg deployed for stability when firing the main canon. Makes sense to me. I'm not at all disappointed with it's articulation (or lack thereof).

I don't know where to begin...

Now that's funny!   ;D  ;D  ;D

Super prompt payment from Jesse for some figs.  Great guy to deal with - I would HIGHLY recommend trading with him if you are lucky enough to have the opportunity.  Thanks Jesse!

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Ewan McGregor hates Star Wars
« on: March 18, 2008, 08:16 AM »
Maybe Ewan doesn't hate Star Wars.  A little video up on YouTube from an interview on BBC, where he speaks pretty positively of the experience.  I suppose it depends on the day.

In contrast to the other actors, I think ewan is more of the rare "I'm going to do a great job of acting regardless of the directing" type of actor, alla Johnny Depp or maybe even early Harrison Ford.  I'm sure like any job, there are things he liked and things he didn't like - I bet most of us would have contrasting opinons about our jobs depending on the day we were asked.  :-\

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Hayden Christensen hates Star Wars, too
« on: March 18, 2008, 08:14 AM »
To be fair, I think the special effects and storylines in Star Wars are great.  However, the acting is somewhat lacking in the prequels and I would chalk that up to poor directing.  Lucas is a great storyteller and visionary, but he isn't without flaws.  I think the movies would have turned out better if someone else had directed.

All that being said, its poor taste to rip someone or soemthing that helped build your career.  I would argue that even Natalie Portman benefitted from her work on Star Wars.

I read differently. Here

I thought the ratings were pretty strong from Entertainment Weekly.  I think it will be back.

There were lots of clues that Jin was flashing back, not forward - his old style cell phone, the "year of the dragon" bit at the toy store (last year of the dragon was 2000), the fact he was working for Paik Industries, his goofy haircut.

Wow, I missed a lot of this.   :-[  I even remember hearing that it was the year of the dragon, but didn't bother to look up when that actually was.  You've convinced me!

I was watching one of the last episodes of Season 3 tonight - the one where Charlie goes down to the Looking Glass hatch.  Desmond tells Charlie about his vision, where Charlie dies, but he also says that part of his vision is Claire and Aaron getting on a rescue helicopter.  I had completely forgotten about this.  If that's the case, Claire must at least make it to the helicopter.

Saw on the NFL Network last night that the Jets have signed a deal with Bubba Franks.  They're pulling in some good players.

Ha!  He's a great player - enjoy his non catches all next season.

Hall of Justice / DC Universe Classics

Thanks Brian.  Walmart up here is selling them for $12.92 or something like that.  It's actually getting quite frustrating to see the discrepancies in pricing.  I know you guys have had to endure some significant price jumps in the last couple of years (ML for example) but for us it's been hard watching the Canadian dollar equalize and then pass the US greenbuck.  Our prices have remained stable and still higher than your stuff.  I was hoping we might see some equalization but I guess the only way that's happened is not having our prices go up.  Still, Marvel Legends at $14.95 and the DC stuff $3 more at major retailers is frustrating.  Same for Star Wars as Walmart up here just jacked prices by $1 to $9.44.  Blech.  No wonder my interest in toys is waning. 

That stinks.  I have no idea how your income and other taxes play out, but that's a big price discrpancy.  Would you save money just ordering from a US company and just paying the extra shipping to get it sent up North?  Even if you break even, you'd save on gas costs...

The only thing I liked in the trailer was the monkey.

How does how he "obviously" survive?

The way I saw it, he is either a) dead on the island or b) still alive on the island.  I think the date on the tombstone leaves his fate wide open...

If he is still on the island or dead, then they were doing a flash forward and flash back at the same time, which I don't think they've done before.  Not saying that can't be it, but I took the Jin/Sun scenes to both be set post rescue, which would mean that Jin is alive, but living a seperate life.  If that's the case, either Sun doesn't know he's still alive or she can't be with him for some reason, which would make her equally sad.  If they do know he's alive, seems kind of pointless to have them go to his grave. 

Obviously the writers have some plan to tie all this up, but I'm starting to get impatient to actually see it!
