I think I'm going to go ahead and preorder Grayskull. The original was probably my favorite toy of all time, and this one looks just as cool even to my (supposedly) adult sensibilities.

I can see why people have a hard time with it. It'll probably be $300 after shipping. But maybe it'll be the shot in the arm the line needs to make it to 2016.

There's a TRU about an hour south of me that remodeled an old store recently, and when some of us Waterloo guys hit it about three weeks ago, we were shocked at how well-stocked it was. Our store is OK, but this one had so much product and so much new stuff that it was amazing. Either we went on a good weekend or it's always like that, but it's weird how they treat stores so differently when they aren't that far apart geographically.

Wow, Castle Grayskull is gonna be huge.

Also, Clamp Champ and NA He-Man were revealed at NYCC today.

Glad to see NA He-Man, and hope all three versions of NA Skeletor make it out before the line ends.

That's a good deal, but I'll be spending plenty there on Monday, what with Rattlor, the Ultimate Battleground Weapons Pak, and the King Grayskull reissue all being for sale that day.

Shipwreck seems to be all I can find at local DGs that actually carry these. Which I don't get; he's far from the worst figure in the wave.

^ Agreed. These will probably be on perpetual clearance like the TF Kreos. They look cool, but I also got the new Club mag today with a preview of the third wave of Retaliation figures, and they looked pretty neat, so they'll probably take up all my dough.

Hisstank put some pics on Facebook, and they look really cool. Not sure what to do yet, but I'll probably buy a few sets.

Got some more vintage Joes. The Tele-Viper, Psyche-Out, and iceberg are all perfect, but Zartan has a little more wear on the back than the seller indicated, but did have a complete and unbroken Swamp Skier, plus the backpack and mask were in great condition. Still a pretty good haul.  :)

Yeah, $350 is far and away more than I ever spent on one item, but hell, it's Fort Max.

And MP Prime is out already? Crap. I was going to hit TRU tomorrow looking for those Generations dudes (Springer and Wheelie) but I might end up with that.

Wow. Bet they won't last too long either. Better make up my mind quick.

Never found these at Target when they came out a few years back, but I found a set on ebay for the right price and put them together this morning. They're wicked cool. :) Now to go around the house making 'whoosh' noises.

Picked up the Asian-exclusive Generations Cliffjumper and Swerve at TRU today. Missed Springer, so hopefully they restock.

I decided to complete my vintage collection recently, so I started by taking the first step into a larger world (POTF) with these two:



They're perfect, which is nice. Probably overpaid for Lando, but got Luke a little cheaper than I expected. Got three of the last 17; 14 to go.  :P Plus a few common figures that need replacing.

Wow. Almost $10 grand a piece.

It's pretty expensive, but I'm seriously considering it, about as seriously as Mattel would, for what it's worth.

I would rather buy something like a MOTUC Battle Ram or Land Shark or Slime Pit, but I get why the want to get this out the door before the line ends. It's far more iconic.
