Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition

I picked up both the vintage Darth Vader and C-3PO carrying cases at a local comic and toy show today and they are both in great condition, all the original stickers and everything. Looking forward to filling them up later tonight.  :)

ABC Renews Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter!

Great news! I knew the ratings were pretty decent for both but you never know about these shows with high production costs. I look forward to more great synergy with the Marvel cinematic universe...

Ok, so they are still irrelevant. Whew!  :D

I noticed Target was selling the 20" Jakks Pacific Zeb through their eBay store so I went ahead and picked him up. That thing has been totally MIA at stores.

Now if Hasbro would just put out that Deluxe Hero Series version with the helmet, I would be good to go.

Finally caught it the other night and walked out of the theatre with no complaints whatsoever. That's pretty rare for me. I just thought everything was well done.

I do think they should have had Coulson on board the Helicarrier since he was the one who had it commissioned to be rebuilt in the first place. Dude is pretty much walking around out in the open all over so I don't know how people like Hawkeye and Widow who still have SHIELD connections wouldn't have realized he was still alive by now.

I liked seeing Linda Cardellini again as Mrs Hawkeye. And I guess I am a moron because i had no idea that Scarlet Witch was being played by one of the Olsen twins. Wow. They finally did something to earn some actual acting cred.

Also feel stupid now because I had no clue Klaw was in that movie. Did I blink and miss the guy in red suit with a cone hand? Or did this have something to do with the Wakanda/Vibranium conversation? We're not talking about that Aussie douche with the brand on his neck I hope?

LEGO / Re: Simpsons

I finally completed my collection tonight after tracking down Maggie and Moleman. I think these are all fantastic. I was surprised to see how much hate they have spawned in the Lego forums. Philistines!

I was psyched to find these yesterday at Target. I bought 16...got 8 different ones, 5 dupes I didn't have to open and 3 extra Maggie/Snowballs.

Hope to complete the set in the next couple of days. These are a lot harder to feel your way around than the last series.

I hit 5 Targets, 4 Walmarts and a TRU yesterday and nary a single Simpsons mini-figure to be found anywhere.  :(

I was hoping these would be easier to find than Hasbro stuff.

Today is the Day! (great band, btw)


Seems like I've been waiting forever for these Simpsons figures to be released. I can't wait to start making the rounds at lunch.

Curious if TRU and Walmart will carry them starting today as well.

Does anyone have any good bag groping tips for this new batch?  :D

Big Ass Striker Eureka arrived yesterday. Aside from not being able to get his "back pods" to stay on right, I love it.

Wondering if they will get around to Crimson Typhoon in this scale. That would be epic!

I finally, finally found a lone Bossk today on the pegs at Walmart way outside town. Now it's back to Anakin and the Clone Trooper as the only 2 figures I've never seen in a store.

Hasbro would probably say "Hey, it's more screen accurate without wheels!"

Saga Legends / Re: Saga Legends "Mission Series" Figure 2-Packs

They are not killing the line. Just the cardback.

Does this imply a new DPCI # or do we think the current one will carry over for the Vader/Ahsoka set?

Kent Brockman: Professor, without knowing precisely what the danger is, would you say it's time for our viewers to crack each other's heads open and feast on the goo inside?
Professor: Yes I would, Kent.
