The Bullpen / Re: The Avengers: The Toys
« on: September 17, 2015, 04:41 PM »
So it turns out that TRU has a pair of exclusive 2-packs for Avengers - Age of Ultron.  And they're in line with the Avengers Infinite line, since the figures are 3.75" scale with good articulation.  One set features Cap and Black Widow.  Cap is a reissue from the Winter Soldier line, but with the regular deco shield.  And the Black Widow seems to be a re-decoed version of the figure offered in the first Avengers line.  The winner in these sets though, is the Iron Man and Nick Fury 2-pack.  Iron Man is a new figure, depicting the Mark 43 armor.  Fury appears to be similar to the version offered in the first Avengers movie figure line.

These are selling for $19.99 each.  And right now TRU has a BOGO 40% off sale.

I was in TRU yesterday and saw a pack with Hawkeye and Falcon in it. I had never seen or heard of it before, and they only had one on the shelves. Should have grabbed a picture. Both appeared to be repaints of older movie figures.

That barber is the best character so far. "Good people are the first to die." He would fit in well with Rick and Co.

I think the Mom's "distant, concerned stare" is going to become a meme similar "stuff n thangs," "CORAL," and "M'ask you sumthin."

So sites like HLJ and BBTS can no longer sell this stuff to us? That's at least what I'm taking away from it based on the Bandai sale. Wonder what that means for some of the stuff I have preordered.

I had to buy the last few SH Figuarts figures from Amazon Japan anyway, and it's actually really simple. Expensive, but simple. Amazon stuff is usually discounted anyway, like here in the States.

Never got to complain about this set  :P

The closest K-Mart is 6 hours away from me, and Sears stopped selling toys after the first Ewok set came out, so K-Mart exclusives are impossible for me to find. Still never got that TK-421 set. I'll definitely need some help snagging this one, which I only really want for the lightsabers. ::)

Had mine sent to my parents' place and it looks like it got there on Friday too. Thanks again Paul!

LEGO / Minifigures Series 14

These are hitting stores now, I saw a bunch at Target. These are the Monster/Halloween themed minifigures and are very cool.

Snagged a few randomly at Target last night and ended up with the Grey Cloaked Ghost, Skeleton Trick or Treater and Cat Costume Girl. Can't wait to pick up more of these. I can easily see them making a Julie Newmar Catwoman with the Cat girl's new headpiece.

Apparently the minifigures are removable and can be used with sets like normal. All you need is the little base in order to play the game. This will have me buying most of the add-ons!

Thanks, Paul! Love me some generic astromechs, and I don't have any of the Disney BADs, so this was a no brainer.

I would even be happy with the ANH themed Vader from 30AC/Vintage. That costume doesn't get enough love.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the 500th Figure Meditation Chamber Vader figure that has been reissued every year and wasn't even a great figure back when it originally came out in 2005.

I'm sure these will be a BLAST to hunt for, considering the final Black Series wave was the first non-lightsaber items Walmart has stocked since 2012. The fact that these are new SA characters that are store exclusives will probably make them even harder to find. AND they're coming after a first wave full of terrible repacks.

The Grievous fig got GLOWING reviews from some employees I talked to at the LEGO Store over the weekend. They said it apparently sold out online and in all of the LEGO Stores across the nation.

Grabbed the new TFA Falcon over the weekend from the local LEGO store to rack up some VIP points. Had a great convo with some of the employees about it too. They showed me the display model and talked about how fun it was to build, and actually showed me all of the differences when I said I thought it was the same as the last model from 2011.

What's with the oil stains Stormtrooper? This would be an easy purchase if they were all just normal white troopers. As it stands I would be paying for three figures I don't want.

Was in Houston for the weekend and on the way back I stopped at a small town Walmart looking for TFA stuff. Nothing there, but I did find Rex and 3PO. Just need to grab the Jawas and INC and I'll be done with the TIE Pilot portion of the line.
