The thing is, unless something changes drastically, it going to take an eternity for those Lost Wave figures to make it onto pegs. There's at least 4-5 waves before that that have literally yet to hit at all in most places. So getting them at SDCC is probably a good bet unless you want to wait four or five more months. The cost per figure breakdown is probably more palatable than most online retailers would be too.

Any hopes I had for Hasbro attempting to redeem themselves at SDCC this year were dashed when I read this over at GH this morning:

"The focus for Star Wars this year appears to be Fighter Pods and not so much the traditional action figure line."


Well, thanks for nothing. Is ANYONE buying those stupid things? I've never even seen a kid look twice at them on the aisle. I've heard plenty of parent comments though, like "They don't do anything" or "They're too small, they'll get lost" etc etc.

Watch the whole Hasbro slide show just be Fighter Pods...the audience would burn that conference room to the ground. Well, hopefully...

Awesome handle!

My favorite Marduk album is "Heaven Shall Burn...When We are Gathered".

So I hear that during Comic-con, you can pay $75 to be chased by zombies at the Petco park across the street at night. It's called The Walking Dead Escape.

Yes, if you complete the obstacle course you get the SDCC exclusive Walking Dead 100 variant comic.

Estimated time waiting in line for this event: 4.6 hours  ::)


I LOVED the Borg-Man!!!

One of the best character actors EVER.

Top 3 roles:

Mermaid Man (Spongebob Squarepants)
Harry Booth (The Black Hole)
Jonathan Corbis (The Devil's Rain)

So much awesomeness last night...very disappointed we are so far off from the Season 3 premiere.

I sort of dazed in and out of the Talking Dead show last night. That Drew Carey idiot practically ruined the whole thing. Always good to hear Bob and Gale Ann dish though.

Some stuff I was able to glean:

Merle is coming back!!!
Life size Michonne statue @ SDCC! Have your picture taken as Pet #2!
Haven't forgotten about the helicopter or the dude and his son from Season One.

Blanking on the rest...

There are two at a local K-Mart near me which just announced it is closing. I went and checked and both still scanned at full price...utter fail.

Went to a comic convention in town today and the guy with the cool SW booth was back again. I noticed he had a Ponds and original Fox carded for sale and out of curiosity I asked how much. I believe he was asking $60 for Ponds and $80 for Fox...unbelievable. He also had a Revan and Malek or whatever but I didn't even want to ask how much those would have been.

Cool, I could use a cheaper Geo set so I can return the one I bought on sale recently. Will look for those today.

Last night I picked up the MH Light-Up Vader for another local collector...first one I have seen on the pegs.

I love that Walmart can throw another fresh case of MH on the pegs when there are already about 50 of them out there, but the same 6-7 vintage figures have been swinging from the pegs for months and they can't refresh them to save their lives.  ::)

Hmm, I'm more curious what ELSE is in that case assortment with the Yavin sled. Geonosian Flitknot Speeder? Y-Wing Scout Bomber? There are some exciting possibilities...

I picked these up tonight from my local Target (087-06-1172) for $14.99 each a steal considering the price point per basic carded figure (that is if you need all three figures from each set :P )

Jedi Mind Trick or were they actually on the shelves? Was there a tag confirming the price or do we think this is a pricing error?

Wasn't sure if there was a dedicated Hanna Barbera thread, but EE has a pre-listing up for a sweet 3&3/4" Zandor from the Herculoids coming in the Fall. Far superior to the pack-in figure with the boxed set with Zok.

So, I saw the trailer last weekend finally, and was sorely disappointed.

I don't know if there are multiple, different trailers floating around out there, but the one I saw sucked out loud. All they showed was a bunch of hobbits and dwarves capering around like idiots. Is the film G rated?

The only thing even remotely sinister looking was the final shot with Gollum, but everyone already knows about him, so very underwhelming.

Where were the orcs, goblins, and fing Smaug?!?!

(Ok, I get Smaug is probably being held back for the 2nd movie, but there has to be some kind of villain for the first part, right?)

Well, Hasbro DOES tend to learn from its own mistakes...

Oh wait, no they don't.
