The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: TRU B-Wing Starfighter with Pilot
« on: February 4, 2008, 11:00 PM »
I'm hoping that this will be the Titanium repaint version.  I could care less about the pilot...

Really?  Any interest in splitting cost to get just the vehicle loose?  I'm only interested in the figure... ;)

K.  I'll reply to myself once more until I get to Screamer.  Megs wasn't as tricky until I got to his legs.  Took me awhile to figure that aspect out, but he looks awesome in gun mode with the replacement parts that came from the third party kit. 

Beautiful toy...

Ooooo I'm so jealous.  What did youhave to pay for MP Megs?  Any chance of a US version being released?  I'd love to have him or a MP Shockwave, but just can't stomach the big big prices.

What is up with Hasbro and not giving some figures knee articulation?

Probably the same thing that is up with them only charging $10 for two figs.  I'm surprised these are new figures at all for that price - they can easily put all of them in the basic line and charge $7 a piece.  For $3 more, you get a second fig AND a comic - just be happy they're making some rarer comic figs that probably would never have seen the light of day if not for this line.

Sweet Jumper - thanks for posting!  I was not impressed with the fig initially, but its growing on me.

Wonder if it's too late to do a "FUZZY VALENTINE" exchange ???

I think I just got a fuzzy valentine.  Nice avatar.  ;)

Another possibility that occured to me is that for both AOTC and ROTS, Hasbro released "sneak preview" waves. So if we're getting wave 1 now, wave 2 in March, SL '08 in April - I'm willing to bet we might see a CW sneak preview wave in June and then the onslaught of CW product in August to coincide with the theatrical release of the first three episodes of the series.

When you look at it that way, that's plenty of new waves plus the other lines like comic 2 packs, battle packs (a big seller with kids), and exclusives - there is plenty of product coming between now and the fall IMHO.

Comic 2-packs were listed as delayed as well.  :-\

While I'm disappointed in the outcome (come on, how cool would it have been for the Pats--or any team--to have an undefeated season?), I thought it was a fantastic game.  I can't remember seeing another game I enjoyed more.  Gotta give it to the Giants, and Eli.  That play...holy crap, that play....

I would say that it would not be cool at all.  Not sure about you, but the thought of hearing about Randy and his undefeated season for the next fifty years makes me want to vomit.  Thank you Elly Manning!

There's a trend in the NFL where the team that loses the Superbowl misses the playoffs the next year... I think that since 2001, every team except one has had that happen.  I'm pretty sure the Pats will come out and still win 12-14 games next year though.

Agreed.  I think that both the Pats and the Giants will be back in the playoffs next year.

Really?  You think it will be a rematch of this year's Super Bowl?  I would put any amount of money on these two not facing each other again next year.

WM now has the FF Legends Line on clearance.  Saw the Torch over the weekend for $5, but passed on him.  Never did get my invisible woman.  >:(

THE GIANTS WON!   WOOHOO!  That was easily one of the best Super Bowls in all time history.  What a great game.  I never would have guess that it would still be 7-3 heading into the fourth - all they needed to do was keep it close and get a little inspiration at the end. 

Eli is obviously for real.  I can't believe he escaped that sack in the final minutes! He's going to have magicians calling to ask about that trick.  As for Brady - if anyone has a screen cap of that final sack, please please please direct it my way.  The way he was flying backwards looked like something out of Hollywood.

Congrats to all the G-Men out there and thank you thank you thank you for saving us from having to hear about Randy Maw and Mr. Brady for the next fifty years.  Oh, and Belichick - you're a whiny, classless cheater and your loss proves that there is true justice in the world.  Nice job of walking off early to really prove what a disrespectful baby you really are.   :P

W3 is starting to show up all over the twin cities.  Saw all of them including variants at WM and Target over the past few days.  I will likely have a spare marvel girl and possibly a hydra solder brood piece if anyone needs them.

Brent - if you need me to grab a knight and bucky and ship up to you, let me know.   ;)

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: 2008 Clone Wars Preview Figure?
« on: February 3, 2008, 02:54 PM »
Ok, if you needed more proof, here is a MUCH clearer pic of the LEGO figs. Rex is CLEARLY marked and is the very same trooper as originally posted and seen in the CW trailer as well.

Awesome.  Thanks for posting!  I'm so glad that the mail away figure is a decent army builder!

I disagree.  If they were going to take a breather, they should have done it a few months back when W5-W8 were all hitting at once.  We already have '08 W1 hitting retail, so that means one more wave of new figs for 6-7 months?  That's a pretty long time for collectors and kids to wait, and I can certainly see people losing interest when the gap gets that large.  Marvel Legends was kicking out new figs pretty regularly, but with the W2 stall last year, a bunch of people lost interest ...I can definitely see that happening with SW.  My ideal timing would be a new batch of figs every 8 weeks or so.

Personally, I'm happy to have a break on my bank account and will still collect whenever the stuff comes out, but I don't think waiting this long is a good thing for the line in the long run.
