Hey Hasbro! / Re: Hasbro customer survey
« on: May 4, 2007, 02:36 PM »
I gave them a hard time about all the exclusives over the last few years.  Between Target, Walmart, TRU, Online, Mail Away, Conventions...its very costly and time consuming for us completists to keep up.  I also don't see how forcing many of us to purchase these items in the secondary market helps Hasbro at all.

Hey Hasbro! / Re: Questions for Hasbro?
« on: May 4, 2007, 02:19 PM »
I've heard more than a few responses from Hasbro discussing "other vehicle possibilities" when folks ask about various ships.  Any chance they can give us some more information on what those other possibilities might be? 

This may have been asked already, but would appreciate any answers that I may have missed: What are the chances for more playsets in the near future?  Specifically, any chance of ever having interlocking death star rooms/hallways to build your own playset?  Can you imagine the sales on a "playset module," maybe with a stormtrooper in each pack?!  :o

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: 'Lost' - Season Three

It was a good episode, not exactly getting as many answers as i thought we may have. The preview for next week looks even better. Ben looks shocked when Locke drops his father's body in front of him.

I have really come to dislike Jack. He used to be the one i dentified with but he is just a complete jerk now even if he does have some kind of plan. Sawyer has grown as a character.

Sayid has very much become my favorite character, i hope they do not kill him off. Very close to Sayid is Desmond, another great character who i really believe is the central character in this all anyway.

Agreed - I hate what they have done with Jack. I don't get the whole keeping secrets thing - how arrogant do you have to be to think you're the only one who can handle the information when all of your 'friends' are always cluing you in to what's going on.  Desmond is definitely my favorite at this point, though I was a little dissapointed that he was willing to let Charlie die a few episodes back.  Glad he came around - that would be hard to come back from.

I don't understand what you mean about Hanso faking the crash? I think the type of fake people are talking about is a cover up crash, not the actual Island arival. I could be wrong.

Well, there are both possibilities for this one.  I don't get why Hanso would create a fake crash in the outside world either.  I hope the writers really think this one through - it seems odd that ALL the bodies were accounted for - I would think that a plan crash 4 miles deep would result in some bodies not being found.

With Johns dad, you know, it's a magic metaphorical box that brought him there, not by conventional means.
That still doesn't explain how Tom Sawyer got to the island...

I'm fairly certain Ben is the actual ruler of the Island, like a president or something.
I think he's managing the others, but someone else that we haven't met is truly in charge.  Remember when he was captured and he confessed that the others were serving a "A great man?"  I think of Ben as the plant manager, but there's definitely somebody else running the company.  ;)

Iron Man's movie armor (red and yellow) has been posted at EW.com.  Check it out at the linky.

WOW!  That armor looks awesome!  I hope they do a good job with the storyline.  Anyone know who Iron Man's first villian will be?  Mandarin seems like the most likely to me...

Okay, only problem I have with Hanso having faked the crash is that in flashbacks, we see the others watch the plane break apart.  That would mean that Hanso not only brainwashed the survivors of 815, but all the people already on the island as well. 

Here's a question - how in the heck did John's father get to the island?  Sounds like he was kidnapped and brought there vs. some mystery teleportation explanation, but if the others no longer have any communication with the outside world and the beacon is out and the sub is gone - how did they manage this?  Or did they bring John's dad before all of that happened?

Question #2: Why in the heck does John need to kill his dad to please the island?  I thought for sure that when he refused to kill, the others would say that he PASSED the test of not being corrupted or evil.  Whoever's running things has some very odd ideas about ethics.

I saw four full pegs of these yesterday morning.  Went to the same store today and they had 3 starscreams and 1 optimus...someone is buying this crud.

A few local stores still have a couple of Tantiv's for $14 and I have seen a few DV Coin sets for $7, but they are out of both at most stores.  I'm still waiting for O66 to clearance so I can stock up on troopers!  ;D

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 30AC Wave 3 - Tatooine
« on: May 2, 2007, 07:00 AM »
Wasn't it announced somewhere that wave 3 would hit in May?  Not surprised at all to see this starting to filter in, but I agree - it will probably be a few weeks before these start to really show up in force. Most of my local Targets have nothing on the shelves for TAC, so I'm hoping that means an earlier W3 release.  ;D

New trailer for 'Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer' 2 is up.

Wow! Just ******* Wow!  :o  8)

Sweet!  Thanks for posting the link.  Who is the guy in the hood that keeps showing up?  Can't be Doom...?  I just hope they don't make #2 like ESB or Back to the Future II where the movie is really just the first half of a bigger story, with Galacticus showing up in #3.  :-\

Bugbite revealed.

It's hard to buy that cutesy Bumblebee mold as a Decepticon, but since I'm never going to own this set, eh.

*YAWN*  No thanks.  Seriously - is anyone else tired of TFormers and SW just repainting the same toy over and over and slapping a new name on it?  Is it that hard to just change the head to look different or alter the wings or do SOMETHING other than just changing the paint scheme?  Is this on my priority list of wants, right next to the polka-dot jedi starfighter.  :P

No love for the shape-shifter?  Come on!  I think she's a great character and hope she stays around.  You never know who is really who with her in play - definitely makes the show more unpredictable.  She's also smokin' hot!  :o

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends
« on: April 27, 2007, 10:45 PM »
I hope the Hasbro people are reading this board.  Essentially, people are willing to keep shelling out $ for 6 inch figs that they aren't even that excited about, but moving to 5" would give most ML collectors an excuse to quit buying anything Marvel.  Hmmnn..wonder what they should do.

I got my Avengers in the mail tonight and I have to say I'm much more impressed with W2.  She-Hulk is great - nice job of making her a little bigger than the normal figs.  Lord Thor is solid, and quicksilver looks good, but a little animated.  I was least impressed with yellowjacket - his head just seems goofy to me, but not a bad figure overall.  I'll keep buying ML if they continue to put out stuff like this.
