The Bullpen / Re: 12" Jumbo Marvel Legends Figures

I've been seeing these lately, well Cap and Spidey. They're just blown up versions of the 6 inch figures with the same levels of articulation that the 6 inch figs have. Easy pass.

I almost wish Hasbro would just pick a scale for Marvel and stick with it... stores locally don't bother stocking 3.75 inch figures, and we get like 2 cases of 6 inch a year that pegwarm. Then there's the non-collector stuff that sits there. Could possibly free up some resources for Hasbro, etc.

My Target has had a busted open TIE on the shelf for months now, and a few weeks back they set up an endcap with six of them in minty boxes... that endcap disappeared before the clearances started and only the broken TIE remains.  ???

My local Target put the Takodana sets on clearance for $32.18! :P

I ended up canceling my order... moving into an apartment and living without a roommate for the first time around the time this set will hit, so my bills and cost of living are going to skyrocket. I'm hoping I have some cash to reorder a set when it comes time because I really do want to support the line.

I picked up an Imperial Navy Commando for fairly cheap on Amazon today. Just need the Jawas set and I'll be done with the TIE Pilot cardback series.

I'm starting to even wonder now. 30 minutes and still no confirmation email. ::)

Was able to snag this just now on HTS

Seems to be selling a lot slower than Ben, and is still showing as In Stock as I make this post

Had a Ben in my cart, processing checkout at 10:20AM CST... got an error message and of course it had sold out while trying to process the order. ::)

HQ images of Rogue One sets (SPOILERS)

The AT-ST is the only must-buy for me. I'll probably pick up a lot more after the movie comes out though.

Just got back from Suicide Squad. Maybe it's because I was expecting a BvS level bomb but I didn't actually hate it. Although I'd be okay with never seeing it again. I was mostly... bored with it? It was basically 90 minutes of walking around, with an additional 30 minutes of bad fighting and some random Joker scenes.

The pacing was all over the place. Seriously, they should have just given us a booklet with all of the team members and their traits and saved 10 minutes of screen time. The music was ridiculous too, using every cliche rock song from the past 40 years. It's like someone from DC watched Guardians of the Galaxy and completely missed the point. Then there were too many characters, main plot felt like an Avengers ripoff, etc.

I would have had them just be told to steal some weapons or something from Wayne Enterprises since Waller was a bad guy anyway. Would have made the post credits scene make more sense as to why Batman wanted to keep tabs on them. Simpler plot, and gives the characters more time to be developed rather than just having us be expected to know who these people are already (or think we can read flash cards in 5 seconds)

I spotted the X-Men wave at a local Walgreens today (everything but Deadpool and Wolverine)

Yeah my Targets had everything on clearance, but virtually nothing with stickers on them. They rang up for sale though. Didn't check the 3.75 inch figures.

I saw that set as well. The War Machine is cool but the Iron Man was lame. Day-Glo Orange?
