Lanard's The Corps will have some interesting additions this year, including female characters.

Awww, crap. I was hoping to skip that line but that set is too cool for school!

Unintended fish pun?

Odd that the shark is an exclusive, how can anyone fin-ish up the line without Bruce?

TRU has Terminator series marked down to $8 each. (Only night club attack Terminator was left)
A Meijer here was Buffy series for $7.49. That's the only series I've seen at Meijers.

Meijers is clearing out Black Series for $7.49 each.
Dagobah Luke, Yoda, Toryn Farr and Dack Ralter were the only choices at the one I went to.

$14.99 for 6 inchers...they had 3 Leias and one Han.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Recents Finds and/or Purchases

Meijers has put Rebels and Mission packs on clearance, $4.49 and $7.49, plus the 12" were...something...I cannot remember.  I saw the wookie 2-pack, pilot luke and skiff Lando. I almost got the wookie set.

51
I actually saw Rex at retail, along with Dagobah Vader, and passed them up. Those were first new figures I've seen since 2014.  If I have the character in some form, at $13 I'll pass.

I accidentally started collecting Mattel JLU animated after coming across a bunch at a yard sale for 25 cents each.

If you don't care about the cards, you can buy a lot of 7 different loose Preds from Hong Kong sellers for under $25.

54
Other people are so used to crazy prices they are calling it a bargain. I actually don't have anything in that set besides the Gamorrean and Leia, and it still seems pricey.

I've lost perspective in toy collecting. Or maybe just interest.

Locals Meijer stores ordered Buffy cases, one store probably had 20 figures of Buffy herself. Why that series?

Droid Factory 2013 / Re: 2013 Droid Factory = NOT Dead in 2015?

Buy them.
Wait a few years, try and resell them at 4 times what you paid as "rare cancelled figures"  ::)
Keep listing them for years and years at that same price even though none ever sell.   :P

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Avengers (and sequels)

Saw it today. It was okay. Entertaining but nowdays everything's so CGI overload, that it becomes a bit numbing after awhile.
 I think having the final conflict/crisis around a fictional country didn't give as much stakes, even if the whole world was also at risk.
Baron Strucker becomes another underused bit player...he could've been on Agents of SHIELD, not like Thomas Kretchsmann hasn't done tv before (THE RIVER).

So retail wouldn't take them? Or what? I sense another Hasbro half-truth...or "what we told you about Droid Factory was true...from a certain point of view."

Reminiscent of the post Rise of Cobra GI JOE line that was axed with product made, even packaged, because they wanted to dump movie likenesses and go another direction.

Is that Pablo Jill? Didn't get him. I'm not sure I ever saw him.

Everything I've read is that it is unchanged. CHANGING WOULD COST MONEY/EFFORT.
