I'd stick with Larry Hama's book. The IDW series seems to keep rebooting every two years, and it's kind of lame. Fred Van Lente's regular series is entertaining so far, though there's only two issues out. Chuck Dixon's Special Missions is so far meh, but it does continue his series/continuity. I haven't read Cobra Files yet, but if it's like the Cobra series at all, I'll probably enjoy it, but it is a little dark at times.

Hama's book is IMHO the best, with recent issues featuring the Red Shadows, which is pretty neat.

Thanks for that. Been looking for that Storm Shadow for a while, and was getting tired of coming up empty at TJ Maxx, and the local DGs are just saturated with the first wave.

Will definitely be skipping the Boomer now- just dropped $38 shipped for a Frag-Viper.  :P

I'm happy the stuff is being made at all, so there's that. I'm grateful somebody was willing to break up the boxed set so I didn't have to buy the whole thing just to get a Frag-Viper.

I have to wonder how well a Night Force set would have done at retail, even as an exclusive. Probably better than some of the Retaliation stuff, which doesn't seem to move at all at my local WM.

It's on! Lots of really cool stuff, including the Night Boomer:

I was really hoping TRU would get this as an exclusive, but once Night Force was announced as this year's theme I knew this would show up there. I'd love to have one, but it's $250 already on ebay. Time to get that can of Krylon and open one of my boxed Skystrikers, I guess.

Hey, that's OK. Thanks for looking, though.  :)

Anyone have an extra Whiplash for sale? I missed him when he hit Matty, and prices are ridiculous on ebay ($100 and more) so I thought I'd ask here.

Found a blue Cobra Commander and GI Joe Trooper at Target today, and picked up another Red Ninja, so it looks like wave 1 is making the rounds again.

Also, I picked up the dollar store repaint of the Cobra Trooper (the blue one with yellow webgear) at TJ Maxx. I found two of them, and no other figures from the wave. One's up for grabs if anyone has an extra Storm Shadow from that same wave, though the card isn't mint.

That was the opposite of what I thought would happen for Ram Man. Oh well. I paid the money, and I enjoy my figure.  :) I would have figured he'd just get more expensive like Fisto and the Sorceress.

I'm not sure about that Strobo guy. I know he's an exclusive, but I just can't figure out how or why people would go nuts for that figure. I didn't want one in the first place, so that's OK with me.

I find it odd that now there's this Filmation sub, and Fang Man is in the regular sub. Had he been left out and the NA He-Man put in his place, I might have considered getting a sub for 2013. Those Filmation characters (other than Prince Adam and Orko) hold no interest for me. More power to those who do. I'm glad the vintage picks are light this year since the $27 price and $10 shipping is making me question if it's really worth it.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

I was just thinking how incredibly ageist it was of me to not want to see them back. As long as they're not the focus of the action (running around with blasters and lightsabers and such) like Ford in Indy 4, I'd be OK with this. Not like it's up to me anyway, but...

I really don't like the idea of Han being back, since I think it's happening just so he gets killed off. Again a problem of these characters being frozen in time for me, I guess. Even though I read a bunch of the EU novels in the 90s (giving up around NJO) those never really went 30 years later, and if they have recently, I wouldn't know it.

I do find it strange that one of the complaints about TPM was that Anakin was so young, and now before even a frame has been filmed on the ST, there's complaints about actors being too old.

Finished off my first wave collection at K-Mart this week. Worst thing is, nobody touched that display since I raided it in December. Lots of stuff still left, except for the goblin.

$82 for a Ram Man just now.  :P Oh well, them's the breaks. It was by far the cheapest one on ebay.

The only reason I don't like this is because I think the only reason it's happening is to kill off Han Solo, and I hate that idea.

Yeah, I have Target like that. Wave 1 stuff and the only place that carries Bravo vehicles. I caved on the Ninja VAMP at $31 but only because WM doesn't carry them and my local TRU got more Ghost Hawks in this week.

WM has surprised me in the last week. I got everything but Colton, Jaye, and the Dark Ninja through them.

Missed Ram Man (like I knew I would) but I did get Jitsu. It was a very smooth order process, probably due to the fact that shipping on a $27 action figure is now $9.90.

This line is just too expensive anymore. I'll have to pay a king's ransom for Ram Man on ebay, but I figure that and Clamp Champ will be it until Grayskull drops.
