this was just discovered yesterday - supposedly another case is coming:

Wage a war for the fate of the universe with Rhino, Mysterio, Thanos, Nova, the Incredible Hulk, Cloak and Dagger, Abomination, Colossus, Black Knight, and Alpha Flight!

I wish Omega Red was in the case because I would like a 2nd for a custom.  But that is 12 figures in that case if you cont both Cloak and Dagger and both Northstar and Aurora.

I have never seen free shipping from BBTS - I think they don't do it because they know that people will take advantage of their pile of loot feature.

I don't think these 1/4 scale figures really make it to brick and mortar stores - they take up too much shelf space and I don't think many stores are willing to dedicate that much space to them.  TRU stores did carry wave 1 of the 1/4 scale Predators but I think they stopped after that wave and then just started selling them exclusively on their website.

And also, for what it worth, I check TRU.com nearly every day for new NECA items they put up for sale.  I did see the 1/4 GD put up for one day and it was in stock and I debated getting it too.  The next day it was pulled from their site from what I can tell.

So yeah, one day only - thats pretty fast for it to sell out.

well good golly I tried to stay away from 6" but Amazon sucked me into this....

Picked up all of wave 1 and Greedo for all close to $10 a piece

INSANE bargains.  These are worth full price and then some.  Are we allowed to talk about these on your facebook page?

lol - absolutely not!  I am going to try and have these slip in under the radar!  Wish me luck!

Picked up the new TRU battle damaged predator and Dutch. I was expecting the mask to actually fit on the Predator's head but doesn't seem to.

It actually didn't even work that way in the movies:  http://www.thegeektwins.com/2012/10/the-man-in-predator-mask-kevin-peter.html#.UpDyCcSX8pU
2 separate masks.  A real Predator head couldn't actually fit under the mask and still retain the same look/shape

In other news - my collection is so massive now!  I gotta build a shelf display area for all of these guys.

I even really like the Kenner Predators.

more weird stuff from my Amazon orders:

from order #1:
Pablo just shipped by himself - expected Friday.
Mara is still left as not shipped from this order and still is not due to me until the end of the year...

From order #2:
Luminara and one stormtrooper shipped and they are expected friday - they might be packed in with Pablo above as Amazon does do that (combine shipments)
the other stormtrooper and Pablo from this order are preparing for shipment and are expected to be delivered between 11/18 and 11/22
Mara from this order also has the expected delivery for the end of the year.

update:  well, they just shipped that other Stormtrooper by itself without Pablo....  Pablo is preparing for shipment all by himself.

on a good note Luminara from my first order arrived today (it was expected for Friday I believe).  She was shipped in a small box all by herself and is in excellent condition

Not very efficient/cost effective shipping if you ask me

update part 2:  now my two Maras are scheduled to come soon.  One between the 19-23rd the other between the 20-23rd...   ???

very odd - on August 30th I pre-ordered through Amazon Mara, Luminara and Pablo.  Then I ordered in a 2nd order on September 2nd another Luminara, Pablo, Mara, and 2x Stormtroopers.

I had to renew both pre-orders since they were taking so long like others have mentioned here.

Today I received word from Amazon that for my first order Luminara has shipped but the other two (Pablo and Mara) still have not.  Luminara should be here Friday and the other two are slated for....  sometime between 12/31 and 1/16/14.......

I am not thinking that date is a real date, but who knows???

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Amazon Droid Factory Multi-Pack
« on: November 2, 2013, 01:16 PM »
Though, I'm a bit puzzled as I really couldn't take apart the other droid.

I was as well.

Am I remembering it wrong? I thought Dooku's Pilot Droid was supposed to be the other Build-a-Droid in the first wave of 12 figures. Right?!

he was, but when the BAD line got nixed they moved him to a main line figure.  IMO he, and the Jabba droid, are the real sellers of the set.  If Dooku's droid wasn't in it I just may have passed on this set altogether.  But I had to have the Jabba droid!
