Reminds me of the Watchman, which sucked.

I wonder if Batman or Superman will bang a chick while Bob Dylan plays in the background?

I went ahead and made an imgur album of the best parts:

The new baddie looks like he is a VERY bad baddie.

The only thing that sucks is that the new trailer means that the leaked script/concept art from last fall WAS real. Gotta stay away from anything new that leaks.

Finally found a Yoda at a grocery store today. Went ahead and grabbed it but I have no idea what happened. I know Hasbro was going for an "ultimate" Yoda but the sculpt looks more like Episode 1 Puppet Yoda in ESB clothes. Not their best work.

Just caught the new trailers for Ant Man and Genisys earlier...

Ant Man looks good. I see a lot of people ragging on it online, mainly for being "another origin story." but what can you do? Marvel has a good track record, and expectations aren't nearly as high as they will be for Ultron and Civil War.

Genisys though... I don't think I've ever seen a trailer spoil the plot like that one. What a joke, and makes me even LESS excited/inclined to see it.

The first few seasons have been out of print for years now anyway... sad move, but I stopped buying the DVDs after season 12-ish. I couldn't tell you anything about the newer seasons, so I won't lose any sleep over this move.

I'm wondering if that rumor that Hasbro is trying to get out of making 3.75 inch figures by giving us crap quality is actually true.

I actually might pick this up... I passed on the Rancor because I was pissed that Target bumped the price up $10-15. I don't think I have that Luke or 3PO either, and more Gamorreans are always nice considering how rare they were here.

Fixed version has the TIE Pilot Helmet Packaging

While I'm pretty used to the Star Wars franchise milking cash out of fans, this seems... excessive? Especially since the industry standard has moved to Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital combo packs for $20. I mean, didn't they just drop BR/DVD combo packs last year?

Easy pass either way, since I already have different copies of the films on VHS, DVD, BR. If only more people would pass on these, they wouldn't have to release different versions of the films each year.

I was killing time in a Target this afternoon and found 3 Sandman figures and 3 Big Time Spider-Man figures on the pegs. Seemed weird to me... I think they got in a half case? No sign of any other new figures. I snagged one of each. Will probably never see another figure from this wave so I'll probably order a case of the wave.

Also, all the Sandman figs were the "normal with sand arms" variant.

Other Collectibles / Re: Revoltech Star Wars Figures

Got my Revo R2 from HLJ last week (you may have seen the pic I tweeted to JD, Yakface and Jesse James over Twitter), and had a few minutes to fool around with him over the weekend.

I'd probably say it's the worst of the four Revoltech Star Wars figures released so far, mainly due to the limited articulation. You can rotate the head and legs, and the "feet" have Revo style ball joints, but so far I've had a tough time adjusting the joints so you can pose them perfectly (with the other figures you can pull the joints apart to repurpose the ball joints, but not so much with R2). The extra wheeled feet are a cool addition for if you want to have a rolling R2, but you can also pose him in the "rolling" position with the normal feet ala a Hasbro fig.

One feature I LOVE is that you can turn the knob/hologram projector on his face and there's a wheel inside the dome that will cause R2's "mouth" light to change from red to blue.

Unfortunately I don't have the Hasbro Black Series R2 to compare it to, but it would have been cool for Revo R2 to have a few gadgets, or maybe a hologram Leia. That's really my main complaint, it's a fine looking figure, and the paint apps are great, but nothing worth going out of the way to get.

I'd rank the Revo Star Wars figures (what we have so far) as follows:

1. C-3PO
2. Stormtrooper
3. Vader
4. R2

If anyone wants pics, let me know, I've been super busy as of late but can probably spend an evening snapping some detailed pics if anyone wants them.

These are apparently on sale at Target this week. I think the ad said $15.99 each. Good deal if you must have them.
