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 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.   ;)

The Empire Strikes Back:  my math comes up with 6 syllables

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

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

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.

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?  ???

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!

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: commander fox
« on: July 7, 2008, 09:27 PM »
It's a regular basic figure just like any other.

But it's in a fancy plastic case!  Surely that's worth double the price of regular figures!   :P

Thankfully Target loves to clearance things.  I'll hold out and try to pick him up for 50% off ($6.50ish range) in a few weeks when the clearance starts....  normally I try to support Target's exclusives at full price, but these "twice the price" exclusive figures suck compared to a lot of the other Target exclusives (like the "2 figures for $10" Order 66 sets).

I'm with you.  Not interested unless it hits a heavy discount.  Who is pricing this stuff anyway?  Let's price two figures in specially designed packaging that fits fewer items per case at about $10, but offer up a repaint figure in already existing packaging that fits more items per case and is pegable for about $7.  Oh wait, let's put a plastic case on it and charge $13 instead.   ::)

I'm in a similar boat, but maybe a step ahead (or behind as the case may be).  I swore off getting these initially because I'm...

A.) Running out of space
B.) Not a big fan of them not fitting in with all of the other figs since POTF2
C.) Running out of money
D.) All of the above

After seeing Yoda and Obi, I was pretty happy with my decision.  I do like Anakin and the clones though, and was going to get the AT-TE and mail-away clone, so for the last month or so I've been talking myself into and was just about set on getting them.

Then a week or so ago I heard about all the ridiculous exclusive clones.   ::)  I'm not interested in spending $100 for 5-6 exclusive clones and if I'm not getting those, then I don't need to be a completist with everything else.  So maybe I'll get a few figs here and there, but definitely not doing my 2x or more of each figure with this line.  Way to chase away your consumers Hasbro!

Picked up NECA's 7" scale Alien the other day.  Holy crap, this is a cooooooool figure.  :)  It has all the detail I'd expect from NECA, but articulation I never would have imagined (just because NECA's figures are usually so damn static).

I've put up images and a review if anyone's interested.


Thanks for the pics.  That is a good looking figure, but I don't really like it standing vertical.  Its been a long time since I saw Aliens, but didn't they mostly move on all fours?  Seems a little too "humanoid" for me.

Only picking up the Wolverine (All versions) and the Spiral from this set. Anyone want my Hulk pieces?


I'll probably just get "Shadow" spidey, so you can have my piece as well if you want it.   ;)

Power of the Force 2 / Re: POTF2 Playsets: Thoughts?
« on: July 6, 2008, 09:35 PM »
Are you talking about the Vintage Land of the Jawas playset?  I had that as well as a Hoth set that I think came from Sears; there was one more similar to the Land of the Jawas playset that was an AT-AT, but the one I had was just a backdrop of the Echo Base hangar.  All three are pretty sweet.

Yeah those!  I think there was a fairly rare Bespin set as well.  Everything comes with a cardboard backdrop these days, but they had little elevators and the base to make a scene - kind of cool, but I guess that's outdated by today's standards.

In WM's around here, they just put them wherever they can fit 'em and it seems to differ from store to store.   ::)
