Saw these last night...ho-hum. How many different costumes does the dude actually wear in this movie?

Red Skull looks cool but of course they couldn't stick that in Wave 1.  ::)

Yeah, they had Wave 1 out MONTHS before the movie was released, and now that the thing is out and the "iron is hot" they suddenly stop shipping new figs?

Dudes, everyone wants that Destroyer! Hook it up!

Loki in the comics was always clean shaven as I recall, but then again, so was Thor and somehow that got lost in the movie.

Very happy to see the Thunder roll on, that was an exciting series. I don't think Dallas wanted to play Memphis, they have some really tough matchups. OKC is more of a 2 man gang.

REALLY surprised to see the Bulls CRUSH the Heat that way. I figured all of these games would be close like the regular season, but that was just a beat down. I mean damn, are they really THAT much better than the Heat? Miami had a lot more time off to prepare for that game after all. I guess the Boston series was emotionally draining but damn, last night was embarrassing.

Hope they can get it together at least to make it competitive. Spoelstra really worries me though, that kid just seems in over his head.

Saw it Friday night, but I had to go to 2 different theatres to find a non-3D showing. (Damn I am sick of that crude, sucky 3D crap...just give it up already, please)

Thought it was good, a solid summer movie effort. If you don't overthink it too much, it's a pretty fun ride. I'm not so much of a Thor purist that I was horribly offended by any of the plot changes. I did want to see that winged helmet though.

Thought Loki came off as much more of a sympathetic villain than the mustache twirling arch enemy from the comics. Was actually kind of refreshing to have a villain with some depth.

LOL..."March '11 street date" my arse.

I feel like this thing is long overdue and at this point should be the next new Clone Wars item that hits the shelves. I doubt we will see any more new figures before SDCC, and who knows what's up with those battlepacks and deluxe sets that have been previewed so far.

I'd be happy if we got half of those...only Sugi, Chewie, and Mother Talzin seem like they have a real shot.

Wonder Woman was not picked up by NBC for the Fall. Dang.

Meh, Miami wins that series whether Rondo is healthy or not, so I don't think that had a major impact on the ultimate outcome. They didn't lose because of their play at the point.

Looking forward to the Bulls/Heat matchup...Chitown pwned them in the regs season, but it's a new deal now.

Home Ice means nothing in hockey, IMO. It provides the least advantage of any professional sport. The Sharks certainly didn't get the benefit of any "home town ref" calls...seemed like every time I turned around they were handing the Wings another Power Play.

Thornton was a monster and Niemi just keeps standing on his head out there, incredible.

I have to go Sharks/Lightning for the final. That would at least salve a little of the wounds over the CAPS choking again.

Picked up a carded Jord Dusat for a good price today. I actually had bought one a few weeks ago but the SOB backed out of the auction and returned my money. I ended up getting a mintier one for five bucks cheaper, good karma for sure.

I dont get the whole Superman appeal, I like my super heroes with a more gritty internal flaw.

You pretty much just summarized why Marvel >>> DC Comics from the 60's-80's. Agree 100%.

Awesome picture, Greg! Mine arrived last night and I am incredibly impressed. I had no idea the thing was so massive, this will definitely be the centerpiece of my non-SW display. I didn't even realize there were electronic features - very cool.

The only thing I was slightly disappointed in was the size and lack of detail on the parasites, which I guess makes sense since they are supposed to be done somewhat to scale.

Everything else about this is so awesome though it has instantly become one of my favorite toys. Well worth the wait!
