Me and 2 friends are joining. They both played with us before in different years. So we have at least 8 teams.  I could probably easily add 2 more using my Facebook page if you want 10 instead of 8. I'll wait for feedback before offering slots to anyone else.

My God is that stuff ever stale.

Blech.


If Hasbro claims this stuff isn't selling, they can hold a mirror up to themselves and blame their own case packs and distribution.  It is the root of all evil.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Toy R Us Vintage Republic Gunship

Yeah I can too actually.  Maybe not THAT much, but I think $120 isn't out of the realm of possibility.

When I saw that MTT hit my TRU shelves last October for $208.99, I vowed to never be surprised by TRU's pricing ever again.  The manager explained to me that they are a "test store," at least the branch closest to my house in Orange County NY, corporate checks sales on these items in the test store and if they are selling well at the, um, enhanced price point, then the price becomes standard in most stores.

Good news is they typically collect dust and the price comes down. 

So TRU wanted $209 for their MTT when it debuted, I waited, and got it for like $70 or whatever on Amazon.

The Gunship is different because it's an exclusive though I think.  But I don't even really want another Gunship unless it gets resculpted.

Don't be surprised if these hit the shelves at $149.99 or more, I can easily see that happening.

I saw the Avengers 3-pack at Target over lunch (Red Hulk/Modern Iron Man/Thor Repaint).  Tempted to get this one, but it was priced at $27.99.  Too rich for my blood.



But you collect Avengers!!!

The Bullpen / Re: Spider-Man (Hasbro) 3-3/4" figures

I do not like this trend to cheaper, less articulated, junky Marvel figures.

I hope their target audience buys enough of these things to make up for the fact that I am buying zero.


Thank God the Marvel Universe line is still going.

I bought the 3 IM3 Legends figures at Target today.  Checked TRU, 2 Walmarts and 2 Targets and only 1 store had IM3 out after the street date.

The Legends figures are good.  The Iron Monger parts are nice.  All of the 3.75" figures SUCK epic proportions.  Really horrible.  I won't be buying any of those.  One line is the Assemblers, the articulation sucks.  And you're able to swap body parts across figures which makes no sense and is stupid.  And the other 3.75" figures are the $5.88 price point which are 1980's Kenner articulation with really nothing cool anyhow.  It's just junk.  Real hardcore junk.

At least the Legends are pretty good.

I saw a similar Iron Patriot at Target, which spokes phrases...including "I'm here to back you up, Iron Man"

Wait, I thought he was the villain!

He is.  Was.  In Dark Avengers Earth-616.  But in movieverse and Ultimate Universe right now he is good.  Iron Patriot is Norman, Rhodes, Stark respectively. 

As far as I'm concerned Earth-616 Iron Patriot is the one to measure all others against.  He was the best.  Psychopath that he was.

I hate exclusives, and especially KMart exclusives.  KMart is a **** store, and I don't even have one within 35 miles of my house.

If Hasbro put as much effort into their Star Wars figures as they do cooking up these exclusive schemes, maybe they would have a better showing at Toy Fair.
