The Haunted was a bit disappointing, though.

Really? How so? Those guys usually destroy live, even with the old singer. You can't beat the Bjorler brothers for modern thrash guitar gymnastics.   :)

Lamb of God is from right here in Richmond. I used to see those guys all over town, when I still socialized. Liked 'em better as Burn the Priest. That split with Zed is epic!

Those were leaked photos I thought, this is direct from Marvel

I definitely like the new costume, but would be nice if they found a way to incorporate the little white wings.  Maybe it would look too hokey outside of a comic.

Then they should have picked someone else whose costume they wouldn't have to screw with. I am SO SICK of these stupid movies with their revisionist history trying to re-write source material which was WAY, WAY better and more imaginative than anything these Hollywood hacks could ever have devised.

Seriously, they're freaking tiny white wings. What's the big deal?

I'm still waiting for a comic book movie that's 100% faithful to the source material. Watchmen came close but he ruined it with that stupid, schlocky made-up ending.  >:(

Rant over, comics rule!

doesn't sw2010 still work?

Not sure, I used that on an order a month or two back, but it's worth a try.

These are also back in stock on TRU.com but I don't trust their ability to get the packages to me in mint condition. The last stuff I got was in pretty poor shape.

O sweet Jeebus...when it rains, it pours!  :o

Looks like I am back to stalking TRU again, this thing looks swell.

These are in stock now at HTS...I am considering placing an order if I can't find them by Friday.

Sadly, the Cad Bane set is already sold out, but they still have the Anakin and Plo Koon sets. $15.99 each I believe.

Anyone have a good promo code there?  ;D

And that will be the one I buy.  :)

Awesome pic, I wonder when these will be out?

And ARE those newly sculpted Tauntauns pictured on the box?  ;)

Ahhh yes, #19542...excellent!

I'm thinking there has to be more to the set than just these guys though. Maybe a couple of brain slugs? Or even a non-Zombie Geonosian would be sweet.

No idea where to post this, and I don't feel like starting a new thread, but did anyone else catch Mark Hamill on the Boondocks last night? Uproarious!

He voiced a weed dealer with a special strain of chronic called "skywalker"...  8)

Target is in a heavy state of limbo right now, so I'm guessing all the best buys would be at Toys R Us and Walmart. And TRU is having that BOGO sale again.

I'm really curious who will get their Vintage stuff out first - Target or Walmart. Will they both wait until 8/6?

The most interesting thing to me are the pics on the back indicating we are getting yet ANOTHER AAT repaint. Man, they love re-doing that thing. (Almost as much as the Gunship)

Swamp Speeder and Hyena Bomber look completely awesome though.

Sweet McMetal!  And you got the BOGO 50% off deal as well, right?   

Yep, it was $11 and change for both figures total. Gotta love that! I bet the sale ends Sunday too.

Oh, I totally agree...at this point I don't feel any tension whatsoever, I kinda just find it funny. I have no doubts I'll be able to find whatever I need soon enough.

Quick update to my story from last night: I stopped by the same store this morning and talked to the guy I know who works there. Apparently after I left on Tuesday he sent an email to corporate asking what the deal was and could they stock these or not. He said within 10 minutes he got a reply stating it was OK to put these out. So they put out about 4 cases that day so what I originally saw on the pegs last night were remnants.

He went on to say he had held 2 cases back for him and myself, but these were the ones cracked open last night when that other guy came through. D'oh!

Anyway, at least now I know that they will continue to stock these as they get new shipments, so I'm not too worried about tracking down Boba. Still no sign of new Deluxe swag or the AT-AT - they do not appear to have any room on the shelves for it even at this point.

Checkmate!

I hit up the local TRU again this morning since they normally get new trucks in on Friday. There was no new SW stock on the shelf, but then I saw the dude I know who works there and he confirmed that they got no new Vintage but did have a case of TCW Wave 1 he could bring out for me. Presto - MOC Pre and Aurra!  ;D

I am officially done with upcoming TCW swag, aside from the Deluxe sets which have not hit here (yet).

Vintage Kenner / Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions
« on: July 16, 2010, 12:26 PM »
Well, I don't think it's outrageous but it's certainly beyond my means. I definitely don't think that is too much money to spend on a toy in general though.

There was another out there just like this in the past week or so, not sure if it's still up or not, but it was well over 1000 dollars as well.

I'm just lookin' for a nice loose one for around $300  ;D
