The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Disney Buys LFL
« on: January 31, 2015, 09:50 AM »
Oh, wow - the guy who has a huge financial interest in these movies succeeding assures us that it's "worth the wait"?  Whew!  I'm sure he'd totally tell us the truth if he thought they were terrible...   :P

+1  Would be hilarious to have him come out with "Well, the new Star Wars movies are just so-so."

Carded?  That is a great deal.  I think I paid close to that for the loose versions, and those were a deal at the time.  Nice score!

Justin, with no news of kubricks, it's hard to include those.

I don't have Kubes in my list, do I?  I would collect those if they ever made any more.   :P

Star Wars
Black Series 3 3/4" - All
Black Series 6" - All
Mission Series - All
Legends - Cherry Picking
Rebels 3 3/4" - All for now including the ships
Varioius Lego Sets
Vintage lots here and there
Episode 7 Figures...?

Legends - Avengers & Guardians figures
Marvel Infinite - Avengers figures
Minimates - Avengers figures
12" Figures - One or two when I see a sale or something really incredible

Hasbro/Takara - Official Masterpiece Figures (G1)
Third Party - Masterpiece Look & Feel (Warbotron's Bruticus & Fantstoys Dinobots among others)
KREO Minifigures - Most of the G1 based figures

Funko - a few figures here and there.  Probably stick with Aliens and Terminator
DC - I'll grab a 6" figure or two if they catch my eye

Funny, I would have said just a handfull of lines, but once I typed them all up there is more than I thought.  The limited releases from Star Wars and Marvel have redirected a lot of my funds and interest towards Masterpiece Transformers.  I've picked up a few Seekers and Alternators of the years, but after getting Quakewave (Not Soundwave) about a year ago, I'm all in on the MP Transformers figures.  Trying to build a solid collection of G1 figures - I have so far acquired a version of AUTOBOTS: Optimus, Blaster, Jetfire, Red Alert, Iron Hide, Rachet, Grimlock, Swoop, Wheelie, Bumblebee, Prowl, Smokescreen, Bluestreak, Wheeljack, Huffer, Eject, Ramhorn, & Brawn to fight DECEPTICONS: Soundwave, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Ravage, Lazerbeak, Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, Buzzsaw, Shockwave, Acid Storm, Sunstorm, Brawl, Blast Off, & Swindle.  I have the rest of the Dinobots and Combaticons on pre-order, along with 3P versions of Megatron and Perceptor, but I'm fast approaching a full cast for these guys (I hope!). Still a few of the cars to be made (Sunstreaker, Jazz, Mirage, Tracks) and the Conehead Seekers I suppose.  Maybe a few more combiners as well.  Luckily these are hitting about one per month, so a little easier to stomach the $100-200 price tags. 

I have been tempted by some of the vintage Funco figures, Acid Rain, and even a variety of Legos, but I'm struggling to make space for my collection as it is.   :P

Vintage Palitoy carded Boba Fett fetches $27,000 at auction!

I have to admit, I don't think I ever saw a carded Boba Fett as a kid...we all got ours through the mail-a-way!

PLUS the guy had to pay the auction house 20% commission.  Wow indeed.

Feels like we've been seriously neglecting the underboob lately. 

It looks pretty long term. Disney doesn't do sales in the parks.

Do you mean this is only at the Downtown store vs. the store in the park?

UCS ? LEGOŽ Marvel Superheroes- The SHIELD Helicarrier 76042

Okay, that's cool.  I like the spinning turbines and the new landing strip pieces.  Not a big fan of mini build stuff in general, but then they had to go adding exclusive minifigs.  Ugh!

Any idea if this is a short term thing or the new forward price?  I'm not going until June...  :-\

Am I misreading that there may be articulated jaw versions of Bossk in circulation overseas or are we just talking about a prototype figure?

Wouldn't Wilson and Luck count as new blood?

Well, Wilson won it last year and Luck didn't make it to the Super Bowl, as far as the Big Game is concerned.  They are clearly the next wave of elite QBs though.

No Wang?!?!

+1  I get wanting to get the girl in there, but Wang would be a much better figure to include with Jack.  Bummer too, because I can't see where they would go with a second wave outside of him.  They did a great job on all the baddies.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Retail Prices/Sales/Discounts
« on: January 21, 2015, 05:45 PM »
Can we call it a price increase if there are no figures to buy?  Going the other way, I'm not sure that I would classify a sale as a sale if there were no figures to buy.   :P

Neither were teams I was pulling for, but I find the match-up more interesting than last year's was.

You're saying Seahawks/Broncos is less interesting than Seahawks/Patriots?  Not a huge difference IMO.  I don't like repeat performances, so not a fan of Seattle going again and there isn't a single team I wouldn't swap out the Patriots for.  Maybe Oakland?  Hopefully next year we'll get some new blood in the mix.

I had to snag the Shadow Trooper and Stormtrooper sets this last weekend.  I used to think $3 for a minifig was expensive, but Now it feels like a deal next to $14 Black Series figs!
