Who the heck was playing?  I didn't recognize anyone outside of a few rooks.  First few weeks of preseason are annoying.

The Saints..on their backs for much of the game....dare I say it...their veterans played like the *gasp* 'AINTS' of old.


No, I was asking who was playing, not who they played against.  I caught highlights and didn't recognize anyone from either team beyond a few rookies.

Steelers looked surprisingly sharp tonight...  Pre-season is pre-season, but still I was happy with what I was witnessing for most of the night.

I hope i can just get the figure from somewhere.

Yah, the exclusive figure with vehicle I don't need concept is not sitting well with me.   :-\

I wouldn't have guessed this to be hazard either, but no surprise if they thought it might poke an eye out or break off or something.  It kind of sucks what they've had to do with toys - I can't remember the last time I opned a SW figure without a bent gun, but I guess if it saves one kids life its worth it.  I would think they could bend the rules a little though on the more collectible pieces...

And my buddy and I were talking after the movie...what does this movie do to TF continuity?  What is Canon in the TF world?

Its a teen and older flick, not a kids movie.  See the animated cartoon for a kids version.  As for continuity, this is the issue with anything that moves from a book to the big screen.  Spiderman has the same issues, X-Men have the same issues...heck, Star Wars is about the only fantasy stomping ground where the film and books don't clash and even within the world of star wars there are some questionable continuity issues.  I would have loved to see the movie just copy the old marvel comics, but I'm also pleased witht he movie that was put out.  In the end, isn't it just about whether or not you were entertained?  In the words of Maximus - Are you not entertained!?  ;)

Found the big'uns the other day.

They're really cool, but I was hoping for a little more articulation, especially out of Galactus.  I'd say they're worth the $10 though.  :)


What retailer did you find them at?

How unbelievably terrible... I hope they find some more survivors.   :-\


Pretty unlikely at this point.  They've converted from rescue operations to recovery operations.  I heard on the news that they're using sonar to locate cars in the water and divers can get to them, but visability in the water is only 6-12 inches, so they can't see anything.  On top of that, parts of the bridge are still falling, so its a major hazard to the recovery teams.   :P

Anyone need a S3 DCSH Azrael?

I have stalled out at 8.  Will likely stay there unless these show up cheaper somewhere...

I've never purchased any of the Binaltech or KISS stuff, but I sure would have enjoyed that extra metal/weight to the toys.....Also a bit to lazy at the moment but I believe there at least 5-6 repaints that we never got in the states.

It's a shame that the Transformers Titanium line bit the dust.  I must admit that the 3" stuff was pure crap, but I really enjoyed the 6" stuff....In fact I just received my order from BBTS with G1 Magnus, WW Megs, and The Fallen.  Beautiful they are  :)

Remind me to show you the Binaltech Tracks figures I have - I picked up both the yellow and red one back when the US version was impossible to find.  I'm bummed that this line is taking a back seat, but hopefully it will be back someday.  Only one I still want to get out of your list is Nemesis Prime.   :-\

Thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts.  So far, we don't know of anyone in the Mpls clan or their friends & family who were injured, which is great news.  Local news said there was a fatality - CNN is reporting at least 3 fatalities, but hopefully they've got their numbers mixed up.  The devastation they're showing on the news is mind boggling - I can't even imagine what those people went thru.

I'm very dissapointed to see no Alternators in the lineup - is this line dead?

Yes....sad, but true. I guess they milked as many chararcters/molds they could.  Comicon ALT Rodimus was the very last one after WM's Rumble & Ravage.

I didn't even know about Roddy until you brought him this week.  Have they said this is the end of the line or just assuming that based on everything else that's coming out and no word of more at the CC?

I saw some Wave 2 Legends this morning - Liea in Bousch disguise, Destroyer Droid, and Obi-Wan Pilot.  Obviously, all passes but it seems that this wave has at least started to hit retail.

What retailer and in what state please?

I use acrylic cases for my vintage carded 3 & 3/4" line, but I don't think I've bought them from Oscar's...

I don't know if you could make enough money to support a store that was exclusive SW product.  Maybe if they had a restaurant or something to help bring in some money or maybe a museum that they could charge entrance to.  It would have to be in a big city as well - there's a limited number of SW collectors in any one place.  We have a collector group in Minneapolis and we probably don't even have 20 guys.  The other issue is cost - smaller stores like this don't have the buying power that Target and Wal-Mart have, so you're looking at figs costing $8-10 instead of $6-7 at mass merchandisers. 

All that being said, if there was one near me, I'd be there!  ;)
