I prefer the larger style figures, despite the space crunch. I find generally the smaller the toy, the crappier the quality. Especially in the sculpts/likenesses.

Yeah. it'd be great if we got the TVC quality 3 3/4 figs, but more likely we would get something more akin to THOR or POTC...ugh. Pass.

The odds are much better that these characters will look superior in a larger size, IMO. I think they did a great job, these are right up there with the Watchmen figures in terms of source accuracy.

I just wonder if I will actually ever see these in a store.

I don't see any of this stuff moving anywhere. Yeah, maybe early on Cap and GL, but they have badly botched the THOR line. How do you not have Wave 2 in the stores yet? The movie will be out of theatres before those things hit! That's absurd.

I don't see any movement with the IM or POTC stuff either. Just dead.

Toys in general have just become a depressing mess the past few months. I feel no joy on my hunts anymore.

After Game 3, I finally realized I am pulling for the Mavs. Heat are an interesting story, but you get the feeling they'll be back here, a lot. I feel like this is probably the last gasp for Dallas.

They are going nowhere fast though, unless that bench starts showing up, not to mention the other 4 stiffs standing around out there watching Dirk.

And Michigan too.

I think these must be places that get Friday trucks. For this month, our TRU's went back to every Wednesday restocks. And they didn't come in this week, so maybe next.

Has anyone actually found Wedge? I cant.

Only dudes on otheR Sites apparently.

I have seen none of the tell-tale leftovers from that wave - Ackbar, Gammos, etc around here at all.

I can sort of see why people are freaking out over it, Wave 7 is already hitting now, and peg space is at an all time low it seems.

I saw some DC/MOTU crossover 2 packs yesterday at TRU...WTF? Are these things new? I have never seen any MOTU stuff on the toy shelves anywhere. They had Merman/Aquaman and some other pack with Stratos.

What an incredible game, this Finals has been the most entertaining I can remember in some time. I don't think I even care who wins, I just want to see them keep going at it like this for 7 games.

EE has photos up...they look awesome. They are definitely all based on the comics rather than the TV show, but that's cool. Some pretty good gore there.

Neal, how was it?

Yeah, that's awesome! Opener worthy for sure. Man, how sweet would it be if they did Admiral Trench?

Or maybe the Stealth Ship in the midsize line?

Yeah, I saw that somewhere too...does not seem to be from any existing BP we know about on the horizon, but I agree it seems sort of lackluster as a single carded release. Probably from something we haven't seen yet.

That whole Geonosis arc has been a gold mine of figures, just wish we could get some of the vehicles.

We ditched the land line finally when we moved last month. It felt weird at first, especially having 2 small kids, but we really haven't missed it that much.

I'll never, ever ditch cable TV. Maybe it is a generational thing, but I can't stand watching TV or movies on a goddang computer.

First of all, I don't have a 50 inch computer monitor in HD surround sound. I don't see the thrill of giving myself a migraine trying to squint at my favorite shows while I strain to hear the sound through my crappy soundcard.

And I've yet to download any show that steamed smoothly, even on my top of the line work laptop on our T1 connection. You invariably get those annoying buffering delays or whatever. Even On-Demand works better than that.

Fantastic wave...Chewbacca is a Grand Slam, IMO...that Bowcaster alone is freaking epic. Whoever is designing those things is earning his dough for sure, first Embo's and now this.

Piell looks really nice too, and armored Savage is predictably awesome.

This whole line seems to be peaking right now in terms of the sculpts, if not articulation.

Picked up a carded Jann Tosh today to keep plugging away at my Droids collection. I may as well savor this because the remianing few I need, for the most part, are going to be very pricey.
