I'm hoping the $8 figures are middle-of-the-road on articulation, in that they offer figures with waists and elbows again.

Picked up Bespin Han, Skiff Lando, and X-Wing Luke from WM today. Kinda disappointed Lando's helmet is glued in place. Dang near tore the head off before seeing the glue.

The Leader class Jetfire is available on Hasbro Toy Shop's eBay store for $22. I had to pick it up for that price. Also, the Generations Nightbeat is on sale for $7.50.

I'm sure they meant "official." The back of the box said this is 18" tall, and weren't all the third party ones about two feet tall when combined? But it's better than forking over $600 for one of those.

Titan Devastator!

Titan Devastator is expected to retail for $149.99 and will feature all six Constructicons transforming and combining into the "largest Combiner Transformer ever".

Cedar Falls, IA. Specifically, Wal-Mart. They must be early on their reset, since I never find these early.

Found the new Avengers series at WM tonight. I picked up the Witch, since the Toy Biz one was awful, but they all looked great. Thor looks really neat, and I might end up building Odin.

Still trying to collect Star Wars. Still somewhat successful, except for not being able to find Doallyn. I cherry pick the 6" guys, but after seeing how Hasbro cheaped out on Vader and Yoda, I might stop with those.

GI Joe- Hasbro just appointed a new brand manager for this line, and in an interview with the Club, started talking about figures and vehicles (!) but we'll have to wait and see. If it turns out to be 2.5" stuff like the Avengers/Marvel stuff, there could be a lot of incredibly disappointed collectors.

Transformers- The rumors for stuff this year will make this interesting. There's a $150 Devastator in TRU computers, for starters...

MOTUC- I've cherry picked for years now, and will continue to do so until the end. There's supposed to be a "huge" announcement at Toy Fair, and I'm left wondering what it could be.

Star Trek Fast and Furious

Orci out of the director's chair, Justin Lin is the new director. Also, Paramount has a release date of July 2016, so I guess this is going to be their guy.

Picked up the Godzilla and Gravity Blu-Rays at Best Buy for $8 each. Also scored AC/DC's Ballbreaker CD for $4, one I didn't have.

TRU is running a 20% off sale on all Transformers this week. My local store restocked Masterpiece Prowl, so I picked him up for $55. Closer to what I think these are actually worth, so that was great. Was Sideswipe supposed to drop this year too, or did he get pushed back?

Picked up Luke, Vader, and Chewie over the last couple of weeks. Glad I can stop going to Walgreens now, at least for a while.

Darby and I are headed to Des Moines next week for KISS and Def Leppard. It's been almost 14 years since I last saw KISS, so I'm pumped for it.

Picked up the Eagle's Edge and Heated Battle sets this weekend. Really disappointed in them.

I got my pick of paint apps, and did the best I could, but when I got them open, I discovered stuck joints and loose legs on Leatherneck and Destro, the only reasons I bought this stuff. The HEAT Viper I got fared OK, but there's a lot of missing paint in the purple areas, and the orange/yellow is a different shade from torso to arms/legs to head.

Pretty miserable showing for the 50th Anniversary, and I guess I figured how Hasbro managed to sell 3 figures for $20.
