Other Toy Lines / Re: ReAction Lines

Just got back from making the toy rounds and am pleased to report Barnes and Noble has begun clearancing the older ReAction figures for 50% off. It looked a bit random to me as far as what was included or not, but I was able to pick up a few more Universal monsters, a Pinhead and Jason, and some Predators at $5 each.

BTW, if you go out looking for these, they are not with the other ReAction figures, they were laying on a special Clearance table with a bunch of other stuff.

Happy hunting!

Cool, I want this to be good. I like Paul Rudd and Evengeline Lilly and Michael Douglas and the guy from The Strain.

Wonder if there will be any toy support...

Somehow that doesn't look anything like the character from the movie to me. I don't even mean the likeness, the gear and uniform just looks off somehow. Could be a misperception on my part though.

Walmart has been clearancing their ReAction Alien figs and I picked up a few more Big Chaps for $3 a piece yesterday. Got a nice little diorama going now...

I asked for NotLD figs which I would buy in a heartbeat.

Seconded...great choice!

If they were smart they would focus on figures Hasbro has NOT done in their 6" line already. That would allow them to poach business from people like me. I can't afford 6" duplicates at those prices.

Seriously, "Night of the Comet"?!?!

I thought that movie was asinine. I can think of a hell of a lot better ways to spend the impending apocalypse with two hot chicks than running around a shopping mall.

Human characters in regular clothes are painfully boring anyway.

I imagine the rights to stuff like Adventures in the Forbidden Zone, Buckaroo Banzai, Beastmaster, etc would be pretty damn cheap to pick up...any of those would be better choices IMHO.

I'm too stupid to figure out where the blade is supposed to go on his back, so I just have it sticking out of his mouth. He can't hold it and I don't get why a robot would have a hole in its head anyway like that.  :-\

edit: after posting this I went back and figured it out. I missed the little slot above the gun sheath. Duh!

The mother of Jake Lloyd, the actor who played Anakin Skywalker in "Star Wars," reportedly told police her son has schizophrenia and is off his medications, according to a Wonderwall report. Lloyd, who also led police on a high-speed chase, reportedly attacked his mother and Indianapolis police were called. "Jake is not a violent person," his mother said, refusing to press charges. - AP

I remember him from the Burbs and the guy Taylor Negron kills in The Last Boy Scout (lost Taylor Negron this year, too).

And we just lost Tony Longo, also from The Last Boy Scout. That's three inside a year. Poltergeist Curse Pt II?

I always liked Tony Longo, so many memorable cameo roles.

Looks like Dick Van Patten just made this thread too. I guess "86 is Enough"  :D

I apologize for that.

I picked up the Goliath/Nadia deluxe set last night on eBay so I now have a complete Virus collection.  :)

Now I gotta go back and watch that dang movie again.

I picked up a complete set of Clash of the Titans figures last month including the Weapons for a little over $100 shipped.  There are only four figures (plus another Perseus with Pegasus), but its a nice little addition to my vintage corner.

NICE! I assume they are all loose?

I have been looking to pick up a carded set off eBay but they are pretty spendy. One day hopefully. Did you get the Kraken too?

I'm also currently hunting for a MISB 70's JJ Armes action figure. Man, that thing was cool.

I picked up an all-chrome T-1000 (Cop Uniform) at TRU today over lunch, so I now have 2/7.  :-\

Also saw the 5th Element figures for the first time, they look better than I expected. Think I might have to grab those at some point too.

1. Tusken Raider
2. Jawas
3. Emperor's Royal Guard
4. Dengar
5. 4-LOM
6. Zuckuss
7. Bib Fortuna
8. Snowtrooper
9. AT-AT Driver
10. Hammerhead

I totally forgot about the 6" Ahsoka until your post jogged my memory.  The prototype got shown at Celebration, right?  I changed my Ahsoka vote to one for Grievous.

Grievous is coming too according to JTA.

Seems like the best idea would be to simply vote for a character that is unlikely to be made otherwise, at least anytime soon. Cantina/Jabba's Palace goons - I'm looking at you!

I don't think I want to take my kids to see any movie that is going to induce anyone to sob for 1/3 of it. We can get enough soul-crushing sadness out of regular life, thanks.
