Pretty sure he's in Cali - Justin   ;)

I assumed so as well, but figured I would check.  The Pittsburgh guys have been finding stuff early lately as well, so one can always hope its closer to home!

Just saw about 8 of these in a "dump" in the middle of an aisle at a Wal-Mart, with electronic blasters on the other half.  $99.96 a pop for the AT-TE.

What area of the country?

Can't believe you voted for the Question.  Huntress, no contest.

This is the creature from Alien, not Aliens.  In Aliens they were more animal-like in the way they moved (sometimes on all fours, but much of the time not), but in Alien it was upright a good portion of the time you saw it and intended to be more of a humanoid than an animal.

John

Maybe, but I don't recall seeing it upright like this at all even in Alien.  It was mostly shadowed throughout the movie, without seeing a full picture of it.  They're supposed to be the same aliens (right?), so I would chalk up any humanoid visuals in Alien to lower production budget versus canon on how these things would really look.

Anyway, I didn't want to bag on a cool toy - just not really a fan of the pose, but it is very detailed and cool looking outside of that!

I think you're the only in the MN group that collects Tformers, so if you happen to see any of the birds around, can you let me know?  I'll owe you big!

I haven't even bothered to look at these pegs since I made my returns months ago, but I'll keep you in mind.

Thanks, but you can go back to ignoring the section.  I found two different paint jobs for the birds at SLP on the way home tonight.   ;D

Umm...not a great idea?  What would stop someone from just keeping the coupon, scanning it, and putting it up on the internet for everyone else to use just like this one?  ???

A one day expiration code embedded into the coupon code

And they couldn't just do that via email because...?  ???

Well we all better hurry because at those prices they wont last long.  ::)

OMG.  Does anyone ever actually pay over $200 for one Kubie?  That's insane. 

Um, anyone that owns Sacul probably fits in that category, so virtually all of the collectors of Kubs that you happen to be asking that question of. ;)  In my defense it is the only Kub I have paid that much for. 

Like I said, Insane!  :P

There were some plot points that you could see coming

I'll admit that the premise behind Hancock's origins were a little out there

Some of the action scenes were a little overdone and that's a pet peeve of mine...fast action, quick cuts, close perspective.  Everything gets mixed up and hard to follow and I really dislike that. 

Sooo...what exactly did you like about it?   ;D

If you're not getting Adam Warlock or Union Jack, you're welcome to their pieces, Brent.

Now, who's going to help me get She Hulk's, King Hulk's, Grey Hulk's, Hulk the End's and Skaar's Foom pieces?  :-*

Assuming I can find her, I won't need my She-Hulk piece either.   ;)

You are obviously spending too much time pronouncing Empire.  Do you live in the South?  ;)

The Legacy Collection / Re: Wal-Mart Droid Factory Sets
« on: July 7, 2008, 09:34 PM »
Another question for those of you that have purchased these sets already...

Do the R3PO and K3PX figures come apart as build-a-droid figures, or are the joints fixed? If they do break down, do the parts swap with C3PX parts?

I have a suspicion they don't come apart since it hasn't been mentioned, but this would go a long way towards getting me to buy these buggers.

I don't think they come apart.  I pulled the limbs on mine and it didn't come out easily, so I'm guessing its not supposed to.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 2008 Target Order 66 2-Packs
« on: July 7, 2008, 09:33 PM »
Good luck to both of you on finding lower prices.  I saw a bunch of these at $7 and within a few days they were all gone.  Still not down to $5 at most stores.  Rancors on the other hand are sitting around at $27.  I'm starting to wonder if they'll even sell through at $20.

If target wanted to do a promos like this here is what they should have did instead of doing this internet/email thing which is just like low hangen fruit for people that would take advantage of something like this.  They should have radomley picked stores throught the chain and have someone at the door handing out coupons like this, kind of like they do at Disneyland with their "dream teams" that hand out goodies at the theme parks. 

Umm...not a great idea?  What would stop someone from just keeping the coupon, scanning it, and putting it up on the internet for everyone else to use just like this one?  ???

Oil Slick

Kinda lame IMO

Well, its no transformable Stop Light, that's for sure.   ;)


Anyone still seeing the "Real Gear Robots" around Target stores?  I bought Wire Tap V20 and would like to exchange it for a Night Beat 7 or similar robot (looks like a phone and ear piece/Lazerbeak).  I haven't seen these around lately.   :-\


Nothing wrong with transformable stoplights Justin.   ;)       Or phonebooths or Mountain Dew machines for that matter.  I've been collecting these things for so long that I welcome an oddball here and there.

I think I've said this before in this thread, but I gave up and returned all my real gear stuff once I found that Hasbro was repainting everything more than twice which is their usual.

Oh - I found the last batch (I think) of TRU movie exclusives over the weekend.  Red Energon Cliffjumper and the yellow repainted blue crane guy from Cybertron.  Never picked up the original versions as they're very sucky.  Even more sucky at $30..

I think you're the only in the MN group that collects Tformers, so if you happen to see any of the birds around, can you let me know?  I'll owe you big!
