The Prequel Trilogy / Revenge of the Sith - 5th Anniversary
« on: May 21, 2010, 02:05 PM »
It has sort of been lost in all the publicity of Empire's 30th b-day this year, but it has also been five years this month since the release of the "final" movie in the Saga, Revenge of the Sith.  Although I'll always take the OT over the prequels, there is always something for me to like in each of the prequel movies - and this one is by far the strongest I think.  Not really much to complain about here for me personally (maybe Anakin's quick "change" to the dark side a bit), and this is a movie I never really tire of watching either.  Good stuff.

Hall of Justice / Mattel Green Lantern Classics
« on: May 12, 2010, 11:20 AM »
To tempt Jeff with another line.....I was over at BBTS last night, and noticed that they had "Green Lantern Classics Wave 1" listed for preorder (shipping Fall 2010).  They have since changed the listing to "To Be Announced Classics"...sounds to me like a GL line is on the way.  Kind of surprised they would start it so far prior to the movie (coming next June), but it might be a good idea to build momentum - plus, get lots of comic styled stuff out there before it shifts to more (or all?) movie stuff.

The Bullpen / Marvel Minimates
« on: May 8, 2010, 08:50 PM »
I didn't see a category here for the minimates yet, so hopefully the new thread was ok.  I'm not really actively collecting these things, but I was over at and noticed that they have a poll up to vote for your favorite version(s) of Captain America to be made in Minimate form.  It is called the "Through the Ages" poll, and I just thought I'd pass it along (thought of our resident Cap fan Scott, and for any minimate collectors that might be interested).

Rumors are heating up that Joss Whedon may be directing the Avengers movie.

Hall of Justice / DC Universe Classics Wave 15
« on: April 13, 2010, 11:27 AM »
Plastic Man is the SDCC exclusive.

I saw that on "Attack of the Show" last night, looks pretty good.  It wasn't clear, but it sort of sounded like the "suitcase" version of Plastic Man was the exclusive, not necessarily the Plastic Man figure itself.  I was wondering if he'll see a regular release as well or not.  If that is indeed the only way to get Plastic Man, count me in (if I'm able to get one via Matty or something).

I see a Wave 15 lineup has leaked via (if it is correct):

Martian Manhunter
Batman (Sinestro Corps)
Golden Pharoah

Not a bad lineup if it holds up.  Martian Manhunter is one of my most wanted figures for this line, so I hope he is indeed on the way.  The rest of the wave doesn't look too bad either.

Modern Classifieds / WTB: Loose CW Ahsoka Tano
« on: April 11, 2010, 05:28 PM »
Just thought I'd post this here if anyone happened to have an extra or they were available in their area.  Our daughter has recently been asking for an Ahsoka, and after searching all our area stores (and online) we've come up dry.  I've checked ebay, but they seem to be going for $10+ loose, and we didn't want to get too crazy with prices.  Just curious if anyone happened to see one wouldn't necessarily even have to be complete (the accessories are too small for her anyways), just looking for a nice Ahsoka figure.  Thanks for any help!

Hall of Justice / DC Universe Classics
« on: February 13, 2010, 11:19 AM »
I'm hoping we see a few new things at Toy Fair this weekend for the DCUC line.  I'm sure we'll see this wave, and probably the two previous, but hopefully we'll get a glimpse at a little something more as well.  I know they sometimes like to save stuff for NYCC as well though, so we'll see if that happens this year or not.

As a side note, I broke down an ordered the rest of the figures to complete Kilowog.  Like Mikey mentioned earlier in this thread, they (at least the ones I needed) were all Green Lantern related anyways - and I hoped to get to them eventually - so I went ahead and ordered them.  They should be here Monday, excited to see Kilowog when completed.

Sounds like Wave 14 has/will be announced in an upcoming Toy Fare, and will be shown at Toy Fair.  Here's the lineup:

Green Lantern (Alan Scott)

Ultra Humanite BAF

I'm really psyched about Zatanna, as I'm a fan of that character and was hoping we'd see her soon.  I'd also probably pick up Alan Scott and maybe Kamandi.  Not sure about the others, but I'm in a bind again because I'd like to get the Ultra Humanite BAF, which I'm sure will be spiffy.

The Bullpen / Iron Man 2 Toys

For those interested, it looks like Hasbro announced its line of Iron Man 2 products today.  More info and pics at the linky.

The Legacy Collection / The Legacy Collection: Best of 2009
« on: December 19, 2009, 05:39 PM »
It is about the time of year when we start discussing the best of what we've gotten this year.  Although many (like myself) haven't yet gotten the Empire Strikes Back wave (or maybe even some of the other waves' figures) - I thought we could start this thread for those that have seen/gotten everything.  I didn't know if we wanted to include CW stuff with this, since the figures are quite a bit different - but the vehicles are more "cross overs".  Feel free to list whatever you want though - Legacy Figures, CW figures, comic packs, vehicles, deluxe, battle packs, exclusives, etc.  It seems like we got a lot of nice stuff figure-wise this year, and some other nice surprises as well.

The Original Trilogy / Rare Original Trilogy Photos
« on: December 6, 2009, 08:02 PM »
I originally saw this posted over at Jedi Temple Archives, and they had a link to this site showing a number of rarely seen photos (both cut and behind the scenes) from the OT.  Although I've seen a few of these before, there were a number that I hadn't ever seen.

Modern Classifieds / FS: Boba Fett Character Key
« on: October 24, 2009, 06:40 PM »
This is the ACME Archives Boba Fett (regular version) character key, numbered 219/1000.  It has never been opened, and is still in the plastic sleeve it was shipped in.  $25 plus shipping, and I prefer PayPal if possible.  Thanks!

Star Wars Universe / 'Star Wars' in 3-D?
« on: October 22, 2009, 01:35 PM »
I'm sure this is just a wild rumor, and nothing more, but I just thought I'd post it here for anyone interested.  I saw this a few places online this morning:

Apparently, as the rumor goes, Lucasfilm will be watching the success of the upcoming Avatar movie in hopes of doing a new Star Wars trilogy completely in 3D.  Also as a part of the rumor, Steven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppolla are rumored to be possibly directors.  This makes this rumor even more unlikely to me.  I would like to see at least the previous movies released in 3D eventually, that would be pretty cool to see.

Just wanted to leave some positive feedback for one of the newcomers here, JES.  I received a lightning quick payment for a box o' figures he was interested in.  Thanks again!
