Human Torch news...

At least it wasn't the obvious choice - Sue.

Did this schmoe ever get his life together, marry, have a kid, etc? He must be in his fifties at this point, I hope he put all the adolescent schtick aside and grew up eventually.

See you in a few months/years when the writers run out of fresh ideas (again).

Let me know, I am a Silver/Golden Age FF Diehard...I have every issue from #6 to the last issue John Byrne drew, when my interest officially died.

I have been trying to pick up the last few issues I need the past few years but they are prohibitively expensive.

The whole thing is a cheap farce and purely marketing driven. I'm really glad I got out of comics because the landscape today has just changed so much.

But attending a big Belgian metalfest ( is certain! I mean, Ozzy, Zombie, ATR and Foreigner! Hell yeah!

Awesome, do yourself a favor and catch Arch Enemy and Amorphis' sets too. They appear to be the two best metal bands on that bill.  8)

I've sort of felt the same, at times, about Cad Bane - as cool as I think he is.  It seems like they really want to make sure you know these new baddies are "bad ass" or something.  I can understand either of them being good fighters, and maybe even taking out some red-shirt Jedis or something, but as far as I'm concerned - particularly in the case of Bane - if they run across a Jedi the level of Windu, Kenobi, or Skywalker, they should be toast.  Same thing with Oppress.  Not only does he somewhat easily handle Kenobi and Skywalker at the same time, he also seemed to do pretty well against Dooku and Ventress, despite just "learning" the dark side very recently.  I suppose it has something to do the powering up the Nightsisters gave him and everything, but it seemed a little extreme.

Dude, I could not agree with you more, and I have railed about this often. The Bad Guys win too much on this show, to the point it stretches credulity. And seriously, we have about 20 different villains now - I don't think anyone will be traumatized if Filoni starts trimming the herd. Oppress really should have died at the end of this arc.

I though the lightsaber duel was pretty exciting, but like in every movie I have ever seen, one person sits around and waits for the other to attack. Simultaneous apprarently is not part of the Sith dueling vocabulary.

Darth Maul? DARTH MAUL?!?! AYFKM? This is so contrived and ridiculous it is beyond words. Is he gonna have his robot legs too?  ::)

Someone posted in RS forum that this wave was spotted at a Target in Cali.

Hope they make it out to the East Coast before too much longer...

Thanks, no luck on this last night. I recall last time it took quite a few weeks for Jodo Kast to hit around here after he was spotted initially. Could be a bit of a wait. Still, something to look for...

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Jedi Turbo Speeder
« on: January 21, 2011, 03:43 PM »
Nope, it has not made it to retail yet, nor has the Tri-Fighter/HMP Wave even. Plo Koon's JSF came out with the Xanadu Blood and I only ever saw this at TRU.

I check HTS every day and the Turbo Speeder is not listed there yet either. Not even for Preorder.

It has not even been available at any of the major online retailers except as part of a larger case assortment, which is stupid expensive.

I'm jonesing for this thing too!

Has anyone gotten one of these in the mail lately?  I sent for mine in the Fall and haven't heard many/any deliveries since early November I don't think...

Hey Adam, I just received my second Bric yesterday in the mail, so they must be shipping again now. Showed up in pretty good shape too.

Think I'm done with this promotion now...hope it's not really the last one.

My votes would be Qui-Gonn, Qui-Gonn, and Qui-Gonn. And then Duchess Satine.  ;D

Speaking of V, does anyone think that Anna looks like Sheldon from Big Bang??
I cant get the image out of my head, each time she smirks I see Sheldon!

I keep thinking she looks like that ho' from Firefly.

Hmm, come to think of it...

Liam Neeson to reprise his role as Qui-Gon Jinn in next week's The Clone Wars


HUGE Liam Neeson fan, loved the character too, and now we finally have an excuse for Hasbro to make an animated figure of him!

This just sounds insanely cool, cannot wait for that arc.

Cad Bane is in this movie?  :D

It's a shame they couldn't find another villain from, oh the first FIFTY YEARS or so of the comic to use. I guess they didn't have enough choices in there.  ::)

Seth Rogen was probably just really high.  8)

I found these today at the TRU up the street from me. They had doubles of each set. They're much smaller than I would have imagined from the packaged photos. Pretty cool stuff though.
