30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 30AC Star Wars Comic Packs

As a novel and comic reader, I'm happy with all of these.  Amazing to see some of these figs getting made - I would never have guessed mouse and able would make their way to plastic!

I guess I'm not surprised by BBTS's announcement, just surprised it took this long for them to confirm what we've been speculating for a while now.

Sucks for those who were waiting, but I guess it's another case of "if it sounds too good to be true..."

Well, I'm bummed that I'm not getting them for the BBTS price, but I wouldn't have paid much more than that for the set anyway, so I don't feel too bad about this.  Sucks for the hard core Kubie buyers, but I already feel ripped off at $10 per figure.   :-\

This makes me think. If comic books are such great fodder for movies, why are comic book shops so few and far between? I've been looking for a comic book shop in my area. Everytime I get an address, it turns out the place closed. Heck, were do you even buy comic books anymore? Borders? Walmart?

I get my single issues at Borders, although I've stopped buying multiple single issues and am focusing on building up my TPB collection. I think the last single issue I bought was Amazing Spiderman #541. When given the oppurtunity, I will also rummage through yard sales for older single issues. I've found some pretty cool finds through garage/yard sales.

Minneapolis has two Hot Comics stores, which I would highly recommend for anyone in the area.  I've seen a lot of these places go under, but there's usually at least one halfway decent one in each decent sized city I've ever visited.  I was just out in Albuquerque New Mexico and they even had a couple of good stores.  Try checking the internet as well as local phone books.

I like the two pack idea, though I'm not too excited about any of those figures.  The Cannonball/Domino pairing makes some sense, but why Marvel Girl and Cable? 

Anyone see the Green Icons Phoenix in the last few pics?  I assume there is a red version with a Green variant?  :-\

That stinks- I can't believe how few of these seem to be around- maybe they will eventually hit a retail store in Japan?

Pisser!  Also seems unlikely that we would see these figures anytime soon given the new wave announcements.  Hopefully they rerelease as a multipack to more outlets down the road.   >:(

They look showdown size to me, pass. I cant wait to see the FFF wave.

I'd guess showdown size as well, but difficult to tell.  Not sure if Cap/Hulk/Iron Man are in the lineup - they're just pictured on the front graphic from what I can see.  Pass.

A new photo of Iron Man (courtesy of ILM) from the cover of Empire Magazine.  I have to say, it looks pretty cool.

Awesome.  I cannot wait for this movie to come out!

Good movie - just wish they hadn't killed off Prime at the end like that. 

Just Kidding!  Haven't seen it yet, but hopefully going this weekend to finally check it out.  Sounds like mostly good reviews from what I've heard...

I'm really curious what the future will hold for Hasbro Legends. 

I've givent his some thought as well. I hate to be a conspiracy theorist, but I wonder how much this line will start tying into the Civil War and falloout of these events.  Seems to me like the whooooole thing is one big marketing campaign.  You have old heroes that have been or will be revamped into new costumes (Punisher, Arachne, Thor, Spiderman, Hawkeye?, Scarlet Witch?) and a plethora of new heroes coming on board (The Order, Ronin, Omega Flight, Gauntlet, All the kids in training at The Initiative, etc.).

With the Hulk wave sporting some of the more recent comic characters, I'm wondering if this is the vision they have for the action figure line as well...

Hey JJ,

Let me guess the seller. Is the sellers name onlegend? He is a scumbag and a sneak. He hides his shipping cost that varies from $14 to $26 shipping in a multicolored blurb of garble. He ordered a custom from me and never paid. I wrote him back laying in to him about sticking me and I even called him out on his shipping charges, they always bothered me because I knew what he was doing. His Mom wrote me back and got invloved. Guess how old he is? 27! The other scumbag thing he does, his customs do not match those shown in the crappy pics he takes and may vary. If I bought a custom off ebay it better look like the damn photo! I also loves how he charges material cost in shipping. When I sell a custom thats built into the starting price not shipping.
Can you tell I hate this guy?

OMG!  You described my experience perfectly!  This is the same guy - shipping is never listed under shipping terms, its hidden somewhere on page 5 of his 10 page item description.  He flat out told me that he charges so much for shipping to avoid paying Ebay fees on a larger sell price.  His mom (or him acting as his mom) wrote back to me several times as well.  Glad to know that the customs don't match what's pictured, since I didn't end up buying from him.  my only regret is that Ebay somehow allowed him to give me negative feedback, but I couldn't leave negatives for him.  There are few people in the world that I actually 'hate' but this guy is right up near the top of my list.  >:(

I don't think I got anything from Steve lately, but please award him +1 anyway.  Also, please subtract -10 points because he's into racing.    ;D

Thanks to Mike for giving me a McLuke with his saber flying all around in the package.  When I shake it, its just Luke is using the force to make his blade fly around.  Sweet!  ;)

Big thanks to Matty-Dawg for picking up extra Father's Day 2-packs and selling me one.   ;)
