They've hit ebay finally. Hopefully, these are factory rejects, because Leatherneck and Lady Jaye are looking pretty naff. Though it's good to see that the wave 2 stuff is getting produced.

Darby, Matt R., and myself are headed to the opening night of Queen & Adam Lambert in Chicago on Thursday. I'm really looking forward to it, having recently seen the stage...

Did y'all see this?

AT-RT Driver and Republic Trooper axed; Ree-Yees and Doallyn 1x per case. Reminds me of those awful case packs that killed the Indiana Jones line.

That third-party stuff could be a slippery slope. I guess if I stayed limited to MP-sized stuff, it's possible, but I think I'd buy the Encore Fort Max before Not-Slag or Quake Wave.

Picked up Masterpiece Grimlock this morning. My local store had at least five on the shelf, so maybe Hasbro and TRU have figured out that actually having enough of these for everybody is a license to print money.

Other than that, I'm glad to have it. Not the first Grimlock in my collection, but the first that's properly sized.  :)

I thought it was one of the stupidest movies ever written.

I agree. I dubbed it Into Dumbness when I first saw it. I always believed Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman were glorified hacks, writing the first two god-awful Transformers flicks, and correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't they also co-writers on Superman Returns?

I watched Into Darkness this last weekend on Netflix (and it bothers me it's like the most popular thing there right now) and I couldn't help but roll my eyes all over again at all the things I didn't like when I first saw it. I want to like it, but it's too hard.

I had decided to stay away from spoilers like I did for the prequels, but Facebook is making that damn near impossible. Guess it's another reason I should leave...

^ Totally agree. Some more imaginative or at least not-lazy writers would be a huge improvement.

I was wondering, where is the Lady Jaye/Baroness pack? And while we're at it, looks like the Snow Job/BAT set is missing too.

Picked up a Stormtrooper, Bespin Luke, and Han at TRU last week, since they're actually getting stuff instead of leaving pegs bare. I have to admit, Han and the Stormie are really neat figures. Now to pick up Fett...

More US tour dates!

So, so happy to see this. The St. Paul show seems the best for me.  :)

Found some movie toys at K-Mart tonight, some big guys that looked like the soap bottle figures, and a Voyager Grimlock. Not my cup of tea, and hopefully they sell to the kids, because the colors were definitely skewed towards their demographic.

And oh my, was the packaging atrocious.
