Hit up several targets a few times this week, still no sign of the wave. People over at fwoosh are reporting they have bumped the price up to 14.99 for all ML at target.
I saw the Target ML wave this morning and they were $14.99. Obscene. They had the Wolverine variant but no Union Jack. Not sure if that's a case assortment or just what they happened to put out that morning. Good looking line, actually. I really dig the Spiral and yellow Wolverine and I think the Red Hulk will look good completely assembled.
I think you'll recognize him by his flapping head, full of lies.
Maybe, but those people aren't wanting to drop $100 on Masterpiece toys since they look nothing like what kids are seeing in movies and on TV.
Overall what is out there is good; because it is exactly what the target market is looking for.
All the stuff you can buy at retail locations like Wal-Mart and Target are not originally intended for the people here, that is what the Masterpiece set is for. Justin, if you don't like that stuff then don't buy it.
Mikey is right! Parents and kid's don't want a super complex toy to play with. They want a toy that takes less than 2 minutes to transform, not one that takes an hour. Because lets face it the directions for transforming the toys were designed by NASA Engineers and only PhD's can understand the instructions on the first read. No matter how cool or realistic it looks, a Transformer that is a level 4 to transform is a tough toy for a 6 year old to figure out how to transform and will lead to a toy that is either broken or not played with.
Transformer toy's haven't changed a whole lot in nearly 30 years. Are you saying that all the figures since G1 are Turds on Sticks?
Yes. That's just where I've often gone to see who's moving. Trust me, it's a nice tool to have. I'll find one elsewhere.
Look for me at the Vikings game
First season was better than I expected and eagerly awaiting Monday night.
So are you recording this or just avoid watching your Packers on Monday Night Football?
I'll bet Justin...7.5 over under on Moss TD's for the year, loser buys a beer for the winner next meeting I get to
The Raiders have the talent, they just need to figure out how to win games. (Not that I mind seeing them struggle horribly every year. )
