Picked up the high-quality KO of Shockwave recently, and it arrived this week. Definitely better than an average KO, but still doesn't have the fit and finish that something from TakTom or Hasbro would have. Had to do some minor surgery on the left leg to get the foot to slide out, and there's a lot of mold flashes. I don't know if stuff like this is because it's such a flimsy design or what.

That said, it beats the hell out of paying $300 for a loose busted-up POS Shockwave on ebay.

I already have all that on DVD already, but might bite on that for Grayskull thingie and the soundtrack CD.

It's on the main page. Now it says: Error: Invalid start/end news items.

I'm using Chrome, but it works fine in IE. Just on my end I guess.

I hate to be a bother, but there seems to be something wrong with the link to the fix tutorial on the main page.

I don't collect statues, but that is pretty neat.

And to think I drove all the way out there this morning to grab Thundercracker and didn't look around a little harder. *sigh*

Better head out there Friday morning and grab one.  :)

How many did they have left?  I'm thinking about a trip up there to snag a couple.

They're gone now. Amazing how fast those and the MP Thundercracker went.

I'm looking to hang it up after that last group of vintage figures comes out and I grab that BMF reissue. About the only thing I'm interested in next year is Jocasta Nu, so I'll get that when it comes out. I really can't think of anything else I would want Hasbro to make other than more characters on vintage cards (like Garindan) but that would technically make me a cardboard collector.

I think Droid Factory is a great thing, but I really don't want to feel compelled to buy new versions of things I already have to complete a droid. I'll see what 2014 brings, and welcome the break in 2013.

It would've been nice to get him for that price. As it is, I found it at TRU this morning for $70.  :)

The Club called me this morning and everything got straightened out, so I'm also a subscriber now. Here we go.  >:D

Just tried to subscribe, and both my cards were declined. Obviously a problem on their end, but considering all the roadblocks thrown up in my way, it's fate telling me not to sub, so screw it.

I really wanted a bunch of these figures, but from these bushleaguers? Well, they can just take a long walk off a short pier, and take Iceberg with them. I'm done with them.

Picked up a vintage Shock Trooper, Clone Lieutenant, and 2 Sandtroopers at TRU today. The sale on them really helped this purchase. Kind of nice to get them for $7.50 each.  :)

Thanks! Very happy with it.  :)

I'm not sure on Stalker. I know one of the DVD Battles sets had a similar yellow Stalker in one of them, which killed the value of loose ones. Carded might be a different story.

I'm pretty happy with the Steel Brigade. Super mint, came with his original baggie (opened on the side) and the patch, but the hard-to-find dark gray Airborne rifle isn't any easier to find. But I got a hell of a deal on it, so he'll probably just get a regular Airborne rifle.

I'm also torn on a carded Jinx and Zarana. I have a carded and loose Slaughter, but he was $15 cheaper than either of those two.

The USPS finally found the Jinx that was delivered July 31st (  ::) ) and I also grabbed a vintage Steel Brigade version D (according to Mark Bellomo's guide) from ebay, though he lacks his rifle.

Missed this from SDCC, but it seems we're getting the Asia Generations exclusives after all, as a TRU exclusive line:

Which is nice, because I really wanted that G2 Megatron and Springer.

Also, MP  Thundercracker is starting to show up too. Guess I'll be spending a lot of cash at TRU this fall.  :o
