Thanks OCB!  To ebay I go! :)  Thanks for the links to SCS as well, I've been there a few times...really a well done site, especially if you want to learn more about any of the figures that have been released.

I had a question for you Simpsons collectors.  I have never collected this line (although it looks great), but have always wanted to pick up a few here and there.  One that I want the most is a Ralph Wiggum...and I was curious what a decent price was for this figure.  Should I just look through the ebay auctions, or is now a bad time to go after this figure?  Also, what is the best (and hopefully not overpriced) version of Homer to get.  Those are my two favorite characters, and I thought about trying to pick them up to have them on my desk.  Thanks for any advice!

I really hope that we will be able to see some new stuff as well, maybe some figures that haven't even been announced.  I'm sure we will see things such as the other two screen scenes, and the concept stormtrooper, since images have already leaked relating to those pieces.  I know they "mentioned" a 2004 preview, so hopefully we will get some more confirmations or even some early protos/pics of some of the goodies for next year.  I just hope we don't only see more pictures  of the figures shown at the Hasbro show in March...some of those figures are great, but I think we're all ready to see something new, many collectors need something to bump up their spirits on the Star Wars line.  Hasbro may start losing customers otherwise.

I was just curious....a question for you experts out there.  I was looking over some of the pics from Toy Fair earlier this year, and I wasn't sure exactly what this figure was supposed to be?

It looks somewhat like a skeleton or something, you'll have to forgive me, I haven't seen all of the episodes of the new Masters show :).  Anyone have an idea?

***Edit:  Nevermind, after looking through the rest of the pictures, it looks like it is part of the playset that is pictured next to it.  You can view the rest of the pictures here

if you want to, there is also Roboto and Zodac preview pics here.  Although it is old news, I thought I'd post it here just in case there are other new collectors that haven't seen it.

Oh yeah, seeing that post also reminded me that I occasionally watch the Looney Tunes when they happen to be on....that was always one of my favorites, and I watched it as a child, through high school and college, and some times now even.  I think many of those cartoons have stood the test of time well.  I also catch Spongebob Squarepants on occasion, but it has been awhile...its actually funnier than I thought :).

I agree, although I did see a few kids in the Star Wars aisle last year, and once in awhile this year, its been mostly collectors.  I'm really not a fan of the action features, and I am glad they are leaving...and I'm not usually a big fan of extreme poses either, although it sort of works for some figures.  This just hasn't been a great year for Star Wars, with people having troubles finding so many figures.  Some of the figures have still been great, but just a big pain to find and obtain.  I know I probably wouldn't have started collecting or looking at collecting other lines if I could find more new SW product on the shelves...but you get to the point where you want to collect something you can actually get :).  Of course, I'll always be a Star Wars fan first, I just hope they are able to get some of these problems fixed somewhat...and get everyone excited about the line again, more like they were during POTJ.  Maybe the rest of this year and 2004 will bring that about.

I haven't really had a favorite NFL team for awhile now, and have been trying to pick a team to follow.  When I was  younger, I was all about the Raiders (in the Bo Jackson/Marcus Allen/Willie Gault time)...but haven't followed them as closely anymore.  I need to find a new team to follow :).

Watto's Junk Yard / Cartoon Watchers?
« on: July 14, 2003, 09:37 AM »
I was just thinking this weekend, and was curious if there are many cartoon watchers out there?  My wife sometimes gives me a hard time because I watch them from time to time (although she will watch with me)...but I guess I just enjoy them.  Currently, I watch X-Men Evolutions, the 90s X-men series that is on ABC Family, occasionally the Spiderman cartoon on ABC Family, Masters of the Universe (although I haven't seen it for awhile), and I also caught the new MTV Spiderman last Friday (not too bad).  I also used to watch Justice League somewhat regularly, but I haven't seen that for a long time either.  I also see there is a new "Teen Titans" series coming out (this week I think?)...might watch it to see what it is like.  I'm also looking forward to the "Clone Wars" cartoon coming up, even if its only in 3 minute episodes.  I guess I also regularly watch the Simpsons, Futurama, and Family Guy, although I don't really count those as "cartoons" more like comedy shows to me :).

Thanks for the replies everyone, I'm really on the fence whether or not to collect these, I've heard nothing but positive things about them though.  Just not sure if the wallet can handle it or not.  Anyone have pictures of their collection they'd like to share, or which figures are their absolute favorites...and why?

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends

I was thinking of either of those too Morgbug, specifically the Series I Spidey classics one (with the big red spidey disc).  I was just looking at some pics of that one at the other day, it looks pretty nice.  Not sure if its still around here or not, I'll have to take a look :).  Thanks!

The Bullpen / Marvel Spider-Man
« on: July 11, 2003, 11:06 PM »
I'm not sure if a lot of people will see this, since it is a Marvel Legends thread...but I had a question for you avid collectors (and possibly Spider-man collectors).  Which version of Spider-man from that line is the best overall version?  I have been wanting to pick up a regular version (no water blast, super parachute, or whatever), that would fit in with the Marvel Legends figures.  Which red and blue costumed Spidey would be the best (and is somewhat attainable)?  Any opinions?  Thanks in advance.

Great topic, I can't really think of any other ideas that haven't already been mentioned.  The ones I have always thought about/wanted:

Indiana Jones (SW size and style)
Seinfeld (my all time fave show, I think a line of these would do pretty well)
Goonies (agreed, that would make a cool line of figs too)

I'll also second the MASK redo idea, I thought that toyline was great when I was a kid.  Otherwise, my favorites from my childhood have pretty much be resurrected in great style (He-Man, Marvel, GI Joe, and the new Batman figure looks nice).

Thanks JediMAC, that's the one I noticed too, but wasn't sure if it was an "official" one or not...I left that up to you mods :).  Thanks again for checking it out though.

Please forgive me if there is already a thread for Modern MOTU figures, I looked through the pages here and didn't see one, but if I'm wrong, feel free to merge or get rid of this one :).  Personally, I don't collect this line (yet), but I have been very interested in it from the start.  I just thought I would start a thread where the collectors, or those interested, can discuss this line.  From what I have read on other sites, other than case pack problems, there is nothing but positive vibes about this line.  I would like to start collecting these, but not sure if I could afford it, or if the wife would appreciate me starting another "toy" collection (on top of vintage SW, modern SW, and a few Marvel Legends).  I thought about picking up the regular He-Man just to see what they are like out of package, can he still be found on pegs now?  Anyways, I'd enjoy to hear any of your opinions on the line overall, your favorite figures and why, or anything else relating to this line.  I saw recently that some of the "Snake Men" are coming up in the near future as well (I believe American Dream Comics had some pictures).  Anyways...feel free to discuss!
