30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Recent 30AC Purchases

Picked up the wal mart Cantina Tin set for $5 last night.

$5?  Niiiice.  A buck per fig and you get the tin for free.  :o

Got mine about a month ago and still haven't opened it up, but I'm going to do it this weekend!  The packaging on some of this stuff is so good that it almost displays better in the box.  Sure is easier to dust that way.   :P

I bought another Elite and two 442 clones with Rebel Minis.  I'm a clone-a-holic.

I agree with what Brent is mentioning in regards to how to set up the waves of figures.  With the Spider-Man line switching to 5" and movie/video game likenesses, just incorporate the villains (Chameleon, Hammerhead, etc.) and supporting characters (MJ, Aunt May, etc.) into the Legends line - little by little.  I know we'll see some complaining if there is too much of that too, but more balanced waves would be good with me too.

With what we've seen of Wave 3 here, I think the figures themselves look pretty nice - but the lineup just isn't that exciting.  Granted, we're not seeing all of the rumored lineup - at least not so far - with 1st App. Cap, Bucky, and X3 Colossus missing (is that right?).  That makes some difference.  Of what we're shown here, I'll probably pick up the Astonishing Cyclops, because I like that version, and possibly Black Knight.  The Marvel Girl looks like a pretty nice figure, but I don't know if I'll pick it up or not.  I read the "Danger" arc in Astonishing, but still could pretty much care less about the character.  If the rest of the rumors for this wave pan out, I'll probably be picking up 3 of the figures or so.

Again, I don't think the quality is necessarily terrible, just the character/lineup makeup is kind of boring to me.  I guess so much was done in ToyBiz's 15 waves (plus Face Offs, box sets, etc.) there really isn't a whole lot left to do that isn't getting way down the list in minor characters or variations of characters.  Like Mikey said, I'm not necessarily all that excited for the same characters in different outfits ("but she has a new hat!"), so that is part of it too.  The list of characters I'd like to see is shorter and shorter now, so maybe it will be time to wrap things up eventually.  That said, I'm still curious to see if these rumored F4 and Spidey BAF waves pan out, because I'd like to see some all new comic versions of the 4, Doom, Mary Jane (if possible), Mole Man, Namor, etc.  I wish we'd get more word on those rumors.  Anyways, nice to see some new stuff, but a bit of a "meh" to me, just because of the character selection shown.

Agree and disagree.  I agree that the latest runs are a bit boring, but I disagree that there isn't anything left for them to do.  Here's a few barn burners I would love to see:

- New Stealth Iron Man
- Tigra
- Black Queen (X-Men villian)
- Mockingbird
- Crystal (Inhumans/Avengers)
- Sersei
- Jack of Hearts
- Red Overcoat Wonderman
- 1st Appearance Wonderman
- Swordsman

And that's almost entirely just from the Avengers.  Its taken us this long just get to a She-Hulk, Yellowjacket, Black Knight, Quicksilver(!)...there's lots yet to make.

Portions of HML 3 shown at NY Comic Con, pics courtesy of TNI/MarvelousNews. 

Thanks for the tip.  Black Knight looks okay, but they could have done much better.  Not even a removable Helmet?  Bah.  I picked up a BK custom off the internet a year or so ago that is 10x better - feeling more smart about that buy every day.  It was $100, but it also came with his winged horse.

I found a code for HTS, and I'm told it can be used even with the sale going on right now:

RCAT10


I haven't tried it yet, but for those little Rodimus and Thundercracker Titaniums, I might.

How much is this good for?

I assume you mean the Titanium version as they both have diecast.  If that's the case, then I can see why....


Yeah, I'm talking titanium.  He's extremely loose right out of the package - I haven't even tried to transform him.  Is the reissue diecast?

Hi Justin, Welcome to JD.  I just joined not too long ago and am pretty new here too.  So far, I've like it here a lot, and everyone's great.  Hope you enjoy!  Very cute kids!  --King

Thanks KM!  Any chance you're one of the MN delegation?

I got two complete sets of the WM figs 70-74 in the mail from a friend last night.  Guess the Saga is complete!

Here you go Justin

Wave 2 Variants
http://www.wizarduniverse.com/magazine/toyfare/003480683.cfm

Thanks man!  Quicksilver variant looks pretty cool - I might pass on the others.  What's the difference between these and te reg versions?  YJ is slightly gold versus blaring yellow?  That's cheap.  And what's with the Jean variant?  Apparently she comes in regular and hungover versions.  This is a far cry from what Toybiz was putting out there AND they're $2 more!   >:(

the new toyfare has a bunch on minimates pictures in it. It says that target is getting a wave of 2-packs as exclusives. Iron Spidey is in it.

I'm Iron Spidey'd out.  How long did he wear that costume, 3 months?  Any report on what the other mini's will be?

Thanks for the pics.  I think these are pretty cool too - good way to get my kids started on action figures at an early age.   ;D
