I would also say the chances of a non Peter Parker Spiderman are at least 50/50.

You're crazy.  The whole world knows Peter Parker as Spider-Man.  Peter Parker movies have made Sony $4 billion.  The circulation of the Miles Morales Spider-Man books is 30,000 (77th highest of January).  I see the chances of a non-Parker Spidey somewhere south of 1%.

I hope you're right, but I think the odds are a little higher than 1%. 

1.) In the comic world today we have a black Captain America and a female Thor. 
2.) On the cinematic side we have a black Electro in Amazing Spiderman and a black Johnny Storm in the Fantastic Four. 
3.) There are currently no blacks in the Avengers lineup (unless you count Fury I guess). 
4.) The current cinematic Avengers map a lot more closely to the Ultimates universe where Miles is Spidey

I'm with Team Parker, but the conditions are certainly ripe to introduce Miles vs. Pete.

One thing I found interesting was that for each of the Talking Dead promos during Better Call Saul, both the host and the actor were fighting back tears.  The host barely got through the second one - looked like he was ready to break down.

Really? I didn't notice that at all.  The actor especially seemed jolly about the whole thing.  Andrew Lincoln's little goodbye was the only remorse I caught.  I really wasn't a fan of the way they were developing that storyline anyway, so good riddance IMO.  It was the right time to end things. 

Beyond that, I thought the spacing out deal was a pretty lazy kill.  Beth's death was lazy and now this one as well.  Was the catch that in the photos we saw two people, but only one of them was confirmed behind a door?  If so, that wasn't done very well.  I am all for a zombie getting your arm as you reach for a light or falling out of a closet or just rounding the corner, but I think spacing out with zombies all around or a zombie "sneaking up on someone" in a quiet, day lit house is well, just lazy writing.  If the other guy had inadvertently opened a door letting the twins out and someone got bit, fine.  Or next episode, apparently the survivors are weak from lack of supplies - I could live with that if it was remotely touched on for he who shall not be named.  But getting killed for staring off into space is a pretty lame way to go.

Why the hell don't they have boards or bars strapped to their forearms anyway?

Maybe Disney will buy DC and let Marvel run it?   ;D

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6 Inch Figures?
« on: February 6, 2015, 11:05 AM »
Interesting write up - thanks for sharing.  I can see where a lot of the set up costs would be similar between the two sizes, so if materials are relatively cheap, this would make sense.  However, Shipping and pack sizes would still seem to account for higher costs and I'm not sure the demand for 6" is as strong as 4".  Maybe I'm getting too old, but I have a hard time trusting what companies say about their supposed costs  these days.  Maybe they looked at it and thought, "we can make $10 a figure on 6" vs. $5 on 4", let's increase the size!"  That doesn't make for as good of a headline though.

$55 to store 48 figures?  Sounds like a neat idea, but too expensive for me to consider...

+1  Cool look, but that price needs to be chopped in half, then chopped in half again.

That's a steal.  Basic figures are twice that price at my Target.

Seen both readily at TRU and don't go toy hunting much at all any longer.  Likewise Luke and the droid are easy to get as well.  The Doallyn dude is usually around half of the Ree Yees numbers though, to his credit.

I've only ever seen these twice in the wild - at two different TRUs.  Neither store had them for long.  They seemed to pop up a few places online as well - oh wait, I was thinking of NERDRAGETOYS where they thought they'd get cases full of them, then cancel on people with no notice.

That picture is hilarious Jeff.  I was shocked enough to remember the ad at least, but not all that motivated to switch my insurance based on it.  Great game overall.  I love that Carroll tried outsmarting Belichek when he had the game in the bag.  What a fitting end for the cockiest coach in NFL history.

I don't know who Ebay would side with, but I would imagine you could note the weight of the box as evidence that nothing was in there.  If he sent something else of approximately the same weight, then you'd have to try something else.  I guess as a buyer you could stoop to the sellers level and take a picture of something else in the box, claiming that's what you got.  Its totally dishonest, but in that case I don't see how Ebay could side with the seller.

Hi, I was wondering what methods folks have come up with for storing their figures.

Thank you,


I am using glass display cabinets.   ;)

It's only in park at the Star Trader. Also Disney just raised the price this week to one for $12.95. 3 for $19.95.

One for $13, but two additions are $3.50 each?  Weird.  Do they have a 3-pack package for that option?  I can't remember what the clam shells look like.

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."
