Yes, except a much shorter run.   ;)

Ditto.  $300-500 feels like a lot to me as well, since I'm more of a casual collector than most.  I'm tempted by Herc or the new Warbotron, but that pricing without being able to see the finished product is a tough pill to swallow.  Any idea how fast this 3rd party stuff sells out?  Do you pretty much need to pre-order to get it or is there typically time to get them after the fact?

Be careful transforming him.  Lots of folks don't like him because he's very complex and not easy to work with.  I've had no problems with mine.  Did you get the upgrade kit for MP05 ?  Kind of essential imo.  Gives him diecast leggings and all the extra pieces to make the rifle.

..and ya the 3rd party stuff.  Difficult not to drop hundreds or thousands a week like some can handle.

Funny - the guy I bought him from game me the same warning about Megs.  Luckily he was new in box, never transformed.  I plan to just keep him in Robot mode anyway, so passing on any upgrades for now.  The 3rd party stuff is pretty incredible though.  I was inches away from pulling the trigger on Warbotron (Not Bruticus), but read that CP charges your card immediately for preorders, so I held off.  Between him and Scoria I need to save up bigtime.  I'm not sure how much more I'll buy beyond the Dinobots though.  I have Megs, Shock, Soundwave, original Seekers, Optimus, Jetfire, Jazz, Prowl, Hound, etc.  Really the only MP that I'd like beyond the dinos are Galvatron, Ratbat, Perceptor, Blaster, and maybe some combiners if I can find the space for them.  a 15" Bruticus, Devastator, Predaking, or Superion would be tempting.  Do you have the Hercules combiners?  Are they all that?

Good to hear, though I've frankly not seen any more of Han than I have Fett.  At least they didn't double up on Leia or Greedo.

I might have to grab that one.  Definitely an upgrade over the Alternators version.

Busy Masterpiece week for me.  I got my Quakewave 3rd party Shockwave late last week, then snagged MP-05 Megatron for $140 locally.  Now to restrain myself a bit from more 3rd party goodness...

I love the current Star Wars series set post ANH.  I really hope Marvel keeps it going with the same creative team.

I just can't see that happening.  It would be odd to see the whole team jump ship like that.

How does Lego get away with this, but Rocket Fett or hard plastic guns from Hasbro are considered a chocking hazard?

I think it's due to size.

Those round clear blue/red studs that the new guns "fire" are very pill-like in that if a child were to swallow one, since it is round and features no sharp corners would cause no harm to the child.

Just a guess...

I'd agree with that, but the little red missile from Rocket Fett isn't much larger if that's the arguement.  I can't see that blocking an airway.  Regardless, the new lego guns are pretty slick.

Boy is Lena Dunham a douche.

To answer your question, yes!

Thanks Mike.  I'll register tonight and get something posted.  Any recos on which threads to look at?  Is there one just for the Minneapolis crew?  The Dinobots sound cool so long as they fit with MP Grimlock's scale.  By the way, I saw a huge anniversary edition Prime with Trailer and a massive Starscream at the Maple Grove TRU tonight.  Multiple boxes of each on the shelves.

Picked up the Utapau Troopers set for my son this week and we built it last night.  Has anyone else seen the new blasters on these figures?  They have little latches that make the guns fire, similar to some of the ships.  The set comes with a ton of extra light blue "lazers" (clear blue dots) to shoot.  Super cool!  They fly a good 5-6 feet too - way more than I expected.  How does Lego get away with this, but Rocket Fett or hard plastic guns from Hasbro are considered a chocking hazard?

+1 , but make him look exactly like movie Ultron to totally confuse everyone.  ;D

Okay Transformer experts - I recently picked up the Quakewave figure above and am wondering what other cool Masterpiece stuff I'm missing out on.  I'm trying to pick up Masterpiece items of prominent G1 characters.  I don't care so much about repaints or accessory add-ons, and I have a number of Alternators versions that I'm pretty happy with in this scale.  So far, I've locked down the following:

25th Anniversary Optimus
Quakewave (Shockwave)
Red Alert
Acid Storm
Soundwave & 5 Cassettes

Have in Alternator/Binaltech form:

Side Swipe
Dead End - Dodge Viper
Meister (aka Autobot Jazz)

I'm not looking for any more Alternators, but want to compile a short list of Masterpiece (US, Foreign, or 3rd Party) to watch out for.  I see a lot of custom seekers, but not really interested in those outside of Ramjet, Thrust, or Dirge.  Here's what I have on the want list so far:

Ultra Magnus
Huffer (3rd Party?)

Any other cool Masterpiece figures out there?  Is there a good source to view/buy these?  I have seen the Insecticons, but I prefer the originals.  Same with Jetfire.  I would love to see Masterpiece editions of other Dinobots, Combiners, Blaster, Perceptor, Galvatron, Autobot Cassettes, etc.

Galacticus or Skrulls would be my baddies of choice for the FF.  Would be a nice way to harass Disney - having another Marvel Superhero team take on invaders from space.  At some point it might be worth buying the license just to avoid distractions and confusion.  I'm betting the average moviegoer has no idea FF/XMen/Spiderman/Avengers are owned/produced by different companies.

Ah, that makes sense then.  I suppose these companies are looking to sell for big bucks as well, so it's not worth Disney making any kind of purchase unless they have plans in place.  It just stinks that they can't include Skrulls or Kree factions due to licensing crap like this.

Honestly, for the cost why not just sell the rights to Disney?
