Depp would be perfect IMO, the classic Strange I remember had those trademark gray sideburns, so the age fits. Plus, ya gotta think after all those years of medical school, residency, and establishing a practice as a successful surgeon, followed by the car accident, recovery, and subsequent wandering the world and studying the mystic arts for years, you'd have to think the guy would have a few years under his belt by then.

They did name drop him on SHIELD, or maybe it was Winter Soldier, so the seed has been planted. I agree this could be one of the coolest movies ever, if done right. (IE: stick to it being actual magic, and not some interdimensional mumbo jumbo) Dormammu would be a terrific villain too, not to mention Mordo.

Picked up a nice carded Aqua Droid today at Tuesday Morning for $2.79 + tax.  :)

I guess they are having a big clearance blow-out going on right now, saw some Saga Legends figures for the same price later at the store across town.

TRU just put up the new 18" Knifehead on their website. I went and pre-ordered one for $150. (Free shipping at least)

Estimated ship date is 6/17, so that is not long at all. Can't wait for this bad boy!

Damn, what a mess. It's my all time favorite comics franchise, but it's hard to feel any sympathy for Fox after the abominable last 2 films, and what looks to be an equally awful reboot. I can't blame Marvel for wanting to distance themselves from that drek. It annoys me to no end that they don't exist in the same universe as the Avengers though.

I hate to see that play out with the comics too, even though I haven't read that title since John Byrne left. They are one of the cornerstone, tent pole type superhero teams IMO, and they deserve better.

Yeah, I got him too and I totally agree...I kinda wish I had 3-4 of them, but doesn't really work without the bikes. That would have made for a great Deluxe set.

Get the Quarren and Mon Cal Troopers too.  You'll dig 'em.

Done and done! Yes, those guys are terrific too...they were among the first I picked up. Just need Obi-Wan and Saesee Tiin to complete my Legacy Clone Wars themed collection.  ;D

I recently picked up BD10 and BD16, the Scuba Trooper and Quad-Gun Clone Trooper off eBay for less than the standard MSRP for the Black line today, so that's the kind of place my money is going nowadays. Well spent too, these are cool figures.

The last scene alone was enough to confirm I should be watching this show. Epic!

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

Excellent additions to the cast! This is really getting me optimistic for the flick. I just hope Lupita is not Obi-Wan's daughter as I just don't like that whole basic premise.

Loved seeing the new set photos, but wonder if that isn't some kind of planned leak...seems like JJ would have a tighter lid on that kind of stuff as a notoriously secretive type. Hell of a way to keep stirring up interest though.

So encouraging to hear they're shooting monsters that take 5 people to operate them too...speaks to a departure from the CGI laden effects of the PT, and a great nod to the OT. What's old is new again.

And wow, I think I saw more black people in those 45 photos than the first 3 movies put together. Props for putting together such a diverse cast, even the extras reflect a broad range of ethnicities which only enhances the SW universe that much more, IMHO.

Just the voice though, as I understand it.

I can't really imagine him in that type of role, but he's not necessarily a bad choice I guess.

After three bad flicks in a row I guess he's eager to get on board the ultimate slumpbuster.

The wave 1 sandtrooper is the officer, isn't it?  I thought the trooper variant coming out was the "trooper"?  I could be wrong as I can't recall which color the wave one was.  Orange is the officer color though.

D'oh! I guess I had that backwards...thanks for the correction.

I just hope they carry the other lines too if/when they ever come out...I'm starting to wonder.

Picked up another Sandtrooper at TRU over lunch today, since I already gave in to the army building impule for the regular Stormies. I figured it would look a little silly just having one trooper standing there next to the officer that is due out soon.

Plus I haven't seen this guy around much for quite awhile, thinking I might not have too many more chances at him. I got them to price match the $17.99 online price too.

If they're all just repacks, why would anyone need to "change their underwear" at SDCC?  ;)

I thought this was only going to be $45?

I don't know, doesn't look much better to me than the Hasbro version. Not sure if my comic shop would even stock these or not either.
