The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6 Inch Figures?
« on: January 29, 2013, 07:52 AM »
I won't buy into a new scale like that of basically the same figures we have, just larger.  I want what's left to be made in 3.75" and to see an improvement on what's out there already.

And I can't say I didn't see this coming if it pans out.  :-X

In Hasbro's 6" line for Marvel, they are on wave 3 or 4 now and already out of maybe 20-25 figures have made a good handful that have not been made in the 3 3/4" scale which has been around 4 years longer than the 6" scale.

Just off the top of my head they made 6" Fantomex, Hyperion, Red She Hulk, Protector, Dani Moonstar, Arnim Zola, Terrax.  I just wish they'd finish what they started in the 3 3/4" scale before they make those characters in a completely new line in a different scale.

What they did with Fantomex is equivalent to putting the Tonnika Sisters in Wave 1 of a new 6" scale of Star Wars figures.

Tell me we couldn't get at least 100 dorks together and go picket outside a Chinese factory.

Hey guys, haven't been around for a couple months.  Just caught wind of this Jocasta Nu situation at marvelousnews.com so I emailed Brian's Toys in a fit of rage and disappointment and what they told me is that they had no idea why people who preordered a few months ago didn't have their orders processed, and people who ordered last week got their figures.  The lady told me she processed mine just now as a result of my email.  What I did was bring up my original order email from september and reply to that address, then I got my response from a Heather Westphal which is Heather@brianstoys.com, she sounds hot but I don't know for sure.

Anyhow, good luck.  If you email her she should straighten it out.

Hey guys - I'm sorry to decide this especially so late but I'm completely and thoroughly not in the mood to follow the NBA this year.  I just don't want to spend any time looking at box scores or following players.  The Knicks suck, I hate the Heat, and I've got other passions and this just isn't one of them anymore.

Have fun playing and maybe I'll join up with you guys in future seasons.

Collector's Tips / Re: Wall Paint in your collecting room.
« on: October 18, 2012, 07:54 AM »
Hrmm, the way it turned out in the room that I have my figures in is that the shelves, figures and vehicles take up so much of the wall space that you can barely see any wall behind them.  That said, I always thought black would look cool.  Black walls, black shelves.  When I finish my basement I think that's what I am doing in my collecting room.

  I've seen evidence of Wave 4, 5, and 6 there this year...  That's more than I can say for almost any other store than K-Mart.


You found evidence alright.  Evidence of a crime.  And that crime is poor (or in many cases absent altogether) distribution.

Well this thread had taken an unfortunate turn.

I took a pic of the big fat 208.99 display at TRU today if any of you moderator types want it for the news. PM me and I will host or email it.

Wow, that's a bit of a hike even over the other MTT hike we saw...  What store was it DR?

Nanuet, NY

Couldn't find the MTT thread so I might as well put this here.  Went on a mega toy and comic run this afternoon, and came across the MTT in Toys 'R' Us.  The price on the shelf and the price it scanned at?  $208.99

This is what happens when people who shouldn't do drugs, do drugs.  Large scale vehicles get made with inaccurate play features, and then they get marked for double what they're worth.

In other news, TRU has BOGO all month long.  Up to about 15 shock troopers from this sale alone.  I saw almost nothing after TPM wave, except a couple figures I picked up and traded, then all of the sudden BOOM tons of cases of the sandtrooper/blue clone lieutenant/shocktrooper wave.

The stupid ball joint on the neck should be standard by now.

Weak. Not even remotely tempted. Jocasta Nu I will have to get though.

I trust everyone figured out from the clues today that it's the Tonnika Sisters.

Now we know.  And knowing is half the battle!

The Bullpen / Re: The Avengers: The Toys
« on: August 25, 2012, 03:33 PM »
I looked at a couple of the single carded Chitauri the other day and it looked like, although they'd the nixed elbow and knee articulation, they left an ankle joint.  An ankle joint without knee joints makes absolutely zero sense.

True story.  The ankles were articulated for sure.  Too bad the arms and legs went back to 1977 Kenner articulation aside from that.

I think the designers are passing a huge bong around the room when they make some of these decisions.  Definitely during case assortment decisions.

Target and Walmart have the Chitauri on chariots for $12.99

The figure shows elbow and knee ball joints on the package, yet the figure is not articulated in these areas.  The arms and legs are straight sticks that do not bend. 

I noticed this at Target and left the 2 Chitauris I was going to buy on the shelf.

That is a new low from Hasbro as far as I can tell.

Another solid trade with FG.  Perfect communication, delivery, item as described!  Great trader.

I don't think I'm forgetting anything but I'm only on like my 3rd sip of coffee over here.
