Superior Foes of Spider-Man has been super entertaining!!  What a different quirky title.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2013 Wave 1

The level of detail, however, was amazing.  Seeing really is believing when you finally see these figures in person. 

This can't be stated enough. I have 2 sandtroopers from Target and will buy as many as I find at $20. Today I found Maul and Luke also at Target. Maul is thoroughly badass to the bone, and then I opened Luke and realized he was about as good.  I won't buy R2 just because I don't care for the character.

I'm totally sold on this line.  It is fantastic.

Well I would side with you (and you know how much it pains me to say that) if I were at eBay and someone opened a case.

So if he passes the baton to eBay and puts in a claim, don't run from your position, you went the extra mile with your description so just stay in the race until you cross the finish line.

Hmmm. That's a tough one. On one hand you seem to have clearly stated what the auction was, but on the other hand it's bad to have a dissatisfied customer. It depends how much money we're talking here. Can we see the auction?

I bit and picked up one off eBay for $125. I can rationalize it any number of silly ways but what's the point? I wanted it and I got it, no time for remorse.

At least now I can be happy with a complete collection. I wonder if there will be any minor tweaks between this and the Wave 2 Boba...guessing not.

Dude there's nothing wrong with that. I wanted the Star Wars and 2 Marvel exclusives at SDCC this year. I happened to be flying NY to SD for work right after the comic con. I figured I'd leave 4-5 days early and go to SDCC also. But when you factor in hotels, rental car, admission, and the crowds and hassle, it's a hell of a lot more expensive, annoying and time consuming.

The $75 extra you spent was a pittance for the relaxed convenience of having it shipped to your door.

If they were $15, I'd be all in.

That's what she said.

They're all up on HTS at this moment.

P-Sizzle stop thinking in 2 dimensions.

I got my first Sandtrooper today and it is AMAZING!!!!!!!  First time ever since 1977 that a storm trooper helmet was sculpted correctly. Absolutely perfect. I'm getting a freaking hundred.

 And 1 Maul when I see it.

Target for those on the hunt.

Avengers - solid/good
New Avengers - amazing
Uncanny Avengers - really good
Avengers Arena - one of the unsuspecting top titles in Marvel Now
Secret Avengers - solid
Uncanny X-Men - disappointing
All-New X-Men - solid
Uncanny X-Force - disappointing/solid
Cable and X-Force - good/solid
Superior Spider-Man - solid
Superior Foes of Spider-Man - solid
Daredevil - solid
Thunderbolts - solid/good
Ultimate Spider-Man - good/really good

** My scale: bad-->disappointing-->solid-->good-->really good-->amazing

Prior to Marvel Now, the 3 books I found to be the best were Uncanny X-Force (2010), Thunderbolts (2009-2012), and Wolverine (2010).

Pujols wasn't suspended. His foot was jacked up a few days ago. There really aren't too many stars being suspended for roids after Braun and A-Rod.  The next biggest name is Nelson Cruz and after that the talent drops off to fringe-fantasy impact.

That was some epic suck!

It'll be back for Episode VII.

Maybe.

Sets were $15 retail...  I got a few for $10 all ATST guys though ironically though Ewoks lingered longer.  The ATST guys I got seemed to be returns or lost in the stock room then bam.  Weird.  Still ATST's here.

Sweet. I saw this thread this morning and remembered I never picked them up. Got em on ebay for $15 each and was stoked.

Wow. That is nice. I actually totally forgot about this ewok and at-st driver KMart stuff last year. Went over to eBay expecting to have to lube up, but they're actually only $15 for each set. That is a lot cheaper than last year. Maybe even better than the MSRP?

Winning.
