From the link:
...and the Silver Savage, which is what the Silver Surfer was called when he fought in a gladiatorial match against the Hulk during the “Planet Hulk” storyline, where he carried his surfboard like a shield!

I might be the only person alive that enjoyed the Mojo sub-story, so I'm ok with Spiral coming out.  I'd suggest they're reaching to suggest this is a Legend of some sort, but that's really just a semantics argument. 

I'd probably pick up the Adam Warlock and then just look at the rest before deciding.  Of course wave 5 is so far out for me it's ridiculous, we still haven't seen wave 3 up here at a regular retailer. 

I 'liked the Mojo storyline, just not a fan of the figures.  If I could get any character from that tale, it would be Quark.

Well the Packers won against every team not named Bears or Cowboys this year,

So the Giant do have a chance!

How do you figure?

We've already heard it, but ToyFare has confirmed that Spiral will be in HML Series 5, and they also have a pic.  They say "stay tuned to soon for the rest of the pics", but I don't know how "soon" that will be.  Figures rumored for this wave include: Black Costume Spidey, Adam Warlock, Silver Savage, USA Agent, and Union Jack.

Nice to finally get a US Agent.  Not too interested in the rest.  Who the heck is Silver Savage?

For me it's the precise opposite.  The Giants won almost every road game, and lost almost every home game.  This year, they're road warriors.  So based on that, you should want the Pack in Jersey.

Well the Packers won against every team not named Bears or Cowboys this year, so since they're not playing the Bears or Cowboys, I'll chalk them up for a win. 

There is no rationale to winning games on the road like there is to winning games at home.  Home games are likely to have a more familiar field, you get the fan support - what is your rationale for winning home games other than luck or schedule?  I certainly wouldn't bet any of my money on a road team just because they're on the road.

Heh.  Yeah, maybe, maybe not.  The only retailer in Canada carrying DC Classics IS Walmart.  $12.95 up here and the second they put them out, they're gone.  So US Walmarts might not be ordering them, but Canadian Walmarts are for now.  Yeah, I know, that's little help to you guys, but I was shocked to see them up here at all. 

These are all over Target, so let me know if you need some yankee help in tracking these down ya Maple Leafer.

I liked the movie much more than I thought I would, but I do miss the G1 bots.  I get the desire to make them less blocky, more real and appreciate the attempt at that.  What I miss is the better proportioning of the G1 Robot modes (more humanoid anyway), and being able to see the general outline/body features of the old G1 styles.  Several times in the TFormers movie, I couldn't make out if it was an arm or a leg or what hitting some other arm or leg or what and which darn robot was hitting who.  Maybe its just too many close ups, but I'm attributing it to robot design.  That's the only thing I would love to see improved on next time around.

Fair enough - I'm sure if it were me I'd be confident in my team too.  :)

I'd go against my own team's chances and shoot for pleasant surprise.  ;) Only reason I'm not is that I have seen pretty strong play out of the Pack all season versus strong play from the Giants for two weeks, AND the game is in Lambeau.  Play that game in Jersey and I would be much less confident. 

Of course, we're all guessing wrong because San Deigo is going to crush the Pats this weekend.   ;D :o ;D

He should have stopped the long winded waffling after this: "I have enormous admiration for Brett Favre.  I think he is an all-time great player. " 

He's an all-time great player and you admire him and he has the stats to outshine almost every QB that has ever played, ...but in Mike's opinion, he's just not of the greatest QBs in history and you have not one thing to back that up with other than your opinion.  Sounds like a brilliant analysis to me.   ::)

Mike - did you ever get your Cobra Legions on clearance?  I thought I saw a ton of these last week, but haven't seen a single one since they went 75% off...

Thanks for the tip!  That's a little steep for me, but tempting for Megs.  If they end up doing Soundwave or Shockwave, I'll probably cave.   :P

Just an FYI - not sure if these are new or not, but I haven't seen them before:  Target Plymouth had a voyager class autobot - some kind of orange rescue helecoptor.  They also had a leader class night watch optimus that looked pretty cool.  I work right by there, so let me know if you want me to pick up either for you.  ;)

Congrats on finally getting your Screamer Justin.  Glad you like him. 

My MP Megs + upgrade kit just showed up at my desk an hour or so ago.  Thank god they remembered to put my name on the shipping label.   :-X 

What a mess that would have been...

Where did you get MP Megatron?  I didn't even know that was available!  Is it a Japanese exclusive?  Are there any other MP formers I should know about?  I just have Optimus, my alts, and Screamer.

Of Course my Wallet and Wife will say different.  

And therein lies the problem.   :(

My bad.

Either way, Favre is 43-5 when the temperature is below 34 degrees.  I'd say that's pretty consistent.

2 of said losses are said playoff games...

And your point is?  I hate to break it to you, but 11 teams lose a playoff game every year and 20 teams don't even make the playoffs.  By definition, a playoff loss means you went further than at least 20 other teams.

Regardless, I really can't see why anyone would be anti-favre, even if you're not a Packer fan.  No one plays the game with his enthusiasm, he never misses a game, he's a good role model, and he has made some amazing plays and comebacks over the years.

I never said the media doesn't fawn over him.  I said the media fawns over Brady just as much as they do Favre now.  I suggest you try to read posts, take a minute to understand what is said, then post a rational response.  ;)

Let's look at a few facts here:

- Favre is not lucky or mediocre.  The Packers have had ONE losing season under his leadership out of 16 seasons.  Find me another QB playing today with anything similar.

- He does not choke 95% of the time.  You might need to take remedial math.  If anything, I think Favre has more comeback 4th quarter victories than anyone playing right now.

- Does he have a lot of interceptions?  You bet!  Guess who else cares more about winning than his own personal stats?  Favre had a ton of interceptions because he was the only playmaker on the team and was doing what he could to win games.  If anything, he's probably guilty of taking on too much of the responsibility for winning.

- He has not had great receivers to work with, nor a decent running game for most of his career.  Walker? Ahman Green? Levens?  Favre's play made these guys better, not the other way around.  Jennings has been good this year, but it remains to be seen if he's that good or if Favre is making him look that good.  What has Walker done in Denver? What has Green done in Houston? Freeman couldn't even get a job after he left the Packers!  Has Ryan Grant been doing well? Heck yeah.  Were the Packers dominating the first half of the season without him?  Ooops, yes they were.   :-[

- Yeah he admitted to taking painkillers.  Big whoop.  I'd bet every player in the league takes something for pain following their weekly punishment on the field.  Well, maybe not kickers. Anyway, its not the same as taking steroids - I don't get how you think his play was so much better because of an addiction to pain killers?  The guy comfessed to a personal problem and that's all you've got against him.

- Favre isn't trotting his wife around for media attention.  If they want to interview her, that's their choice.  She happens to come to most of his games and I've seen her interviewed twice in 16 years.  Wow, that's some heavy media coverage!  Maybe his girlfriends just don't come to the games.  There certainly isn't as much of a story to them as someone surviving breast cancer.  I never said Brady slept with every woman out there, but I don't know a lot of real credible guys that have dumped an ex while she was pregnant.  Isn't Gisele pregnant too?  But they're not married?  No offense, but that track record is not likely to win him popularity contests as a family man. 

Brady may not always have had great receivers either, but look at what he can do when he gets a Moss - a perfect season so far.  Favre's never had anyone like that. I can't believe anyone thinks that Dillon and Maroney haven't helped his game in the past.  These guys are top tier RBs - Dillon has several rushing records and Maroney scored what 15 TDs last year?  Yeah, he's been quiet this year, but that's because they don't need him with Moss scoring 23 TDs.  Brady also has the advantage of having a coach who is considered a coaching genius - Favre hasn't had very noteworthy guys calling the plays.  I'll also add that Favre has been around a lot longer and is in the twilight of his career, so he's had a lot longer to grow on people.
