Today's Daily Deal @ EE is 30% off some figures from the Marvel/Avengers Infinite line. 

No idea if any of these are old or really old or whatever, but thought I'd pass along the news...

Was very surprised the Wild took Eriksson Ek instead of White.

That makes me LOL because of this... 

The popular opinion among the Wild blogosphere is that the Wild will absolutely not pick a player with high offensive upside. Heck, we even share that opinion- the title of our most recent podcast is called "The Inevitability of Colin White".

Everyone assumed they'd take him if he was available because he's almost a prototype of what the Wild look for in a pick.:P

Not sure I know much about Ek other than he's "a Swedish Mikko Koivu" or whatever.  Time will tell, I guess.

I love the draft.  Trades, picks, signings. Fun, fun, fun. :)

Waiting to see if we sign Dubnyk or if we trade for a different guy... do we trade Spurgeon for offensive help... do we sign Granlund of give up on him... should be a good night.

Somehow that doesn't look anything like the character from the movie to me. I don't even mean the likeness, the gear and uniform just looks off somehow. Could be a misperception on my part though.

Hiya's license is for Aliens: Colonial Marines (video game).  So while some of the characters are from the movie(s), they may have video game gear/looks and not movie gear.

I need to check at home but yeah I can't wait to be "done". 

I've decided that when my Wave 8 stuff gets here from EE, I'll save Carbonite Han to open last. 

That way, should the dark whispers pan out and Hasbro announces that the SA 3.75" collector line is indeed dead, I'll always have the knowledge that the last new 3.75" collector figure I opened was Han Solo.  ;)

ST: TNG are coming... they wanted to get the two TOS waves out first, but TNG rights are already locked up -

An updated list of ReAction lines planned for next year... 

$130 was the rumored price, so it's good to see it hasn't magically increased along the way like some TRU exclusives do. :P

I have no desire to buy this set.  None. 

I hope all the collectors who complained for Hasbro to put one new thing in these battle packs enjoy spending $130 for their 5th (6th?) version of Jabba the Hutt.

Same here - Carbonite Han and Jawas are shipping... but Mosep, Boushh, and Thorn are not.  Strange. 

EE update:

- Carbonite Block & Han = In-Stock!
- Jawa 2-pack = In-Stock!
- Mosep = In-Stock!
- Boushh = In-Stock!
- Thorn = Temporarily Out of Stock
- C-3PO = Coming in July 2015

My Mosep/Boushh/Thorn pre-orders are processing.  Will be really happy to have these figures finally. :)


Star Wars™ The Black Series Jabba’s Rancor™ Pit from Hasbro®
Star Wars™ fans can re-create one of the biggest battles and missions in the Star Wars Saga with this set from The Black Series. Jabba’s Rancor™ Pit includes highly articulated 6-inch figures, all of which are featured in the epic Return of the Jedi scene where Jabba the Hut throws a Gamorrean Guard and Luke Skywalker into the Rancor Pit, while Princess Leia looks on in horror. This item will become available at Toys“R”Us stores later this year.

Fans unable to journey to San Diego will also have the opportunity to purchase all of the same products online at beginning on Thursday, July 9. All merchandise is available while supplies last, so fans are encouraged to visit Entertainment Earth at booth #2343 or early to make purchases.

**Silly TRU, these are NOT 6" figures.   ::)

Looks like has a slightly better pic of SHF C-3PO and R2-D2 figures... blurred the figures, but not the reflection of the figures. :P

Hasbro would like our 1-6 ranked in order, so if there is a tie at any position on the top six list, I will act as the judge for the final order/ranking (so I'm the TIE-breaker).

I am abstaining from posting a 6" wishlist to avoid my vote counting twice.  #transparency

In-Stock at BBTS.  $70 for the three figures isn't a terrible price. 

It would kind of be cool if the first 6" Fan Choice figure was the same as the 3.75" (McQuarrie Stormtrooper).

Hey now, don't be dissing the Duros.  Ellors Madak was the winner of the very first Fan's Choice Poll (2000).

McQuarrie Stormtrooper didn't win until poll #4 (2002).

Past Fan's Choice Winners:
1. Duro (Ellors Madak) - Spring 2000
2. Amanaman - Fall 2000
3. Ephant Mon - Winter 2001
4. McQuarrie Stormtrooper - Summer 2002
5. Captain Antilles & General Dodonna (tie) - Summer 2003
6. Quinlon Vos & Darth Revan - 2006
7. Bastilla Shan - Winter 2009
8. Mara Jade - Winter 2011


I did see that announcement before.  I guess my question is:

Who is making an appearance in Cap 3 - is it just "Spider-Man" or will it be this kid as Peter Parker/Unmasked Spider-Man?

I agree it makes sense, based on things previously said about getting Spidey into the MMU, that if Peter Parker shows up in Cap 3, it'll be this kid.  BUT, without them specifically saying so in the press release, I guess it'll leave the door open in case they only want a stunt guy in a Spidey suit because he doesn't have any lines in Cap 3 or whatever.

Maybe they chose not to say because they didn't want to tip Spidey's role in Cap 3.  Maybe they didn't say because they assumed it was known.  I was just curious how big a role Spidey would have in Cap 3, since the movie is already shaping up to be chock-full-o-heroes if the casting/script rumors are true.

Marvel's article doesn't mention Cap 3 either, just talks about the next Spidey movie -

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios Find Their 'Spider-Man' Star and Director

"Tom Holland will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the next Spider-Man film, in theaters in IMAX and 3D on July 28, 2017."
