Middle Earth / Re: The Hobbit - Toy Line

Yeah these are REALLY nice...  Like, nice to the point that if there wasn't SW I'd be considering going all in on these, and praying for a LOTR line as well...  Actually if the latter happens it'll be hard for me NOT to buy into these.  :-\  LOTR is the only movie franchise besides SW that has me hooked in completely.
Indiana Jones?!?

Has anyone watched the Target bonus disc for Avengers yet?  Pretty good, and legitimately 90 mins long.  Cool retrospective of the whole series, and it was cool seeing the ComiCon reactions.  It really is amazing that they were able to pull this off, five lead-up films and not a bomb amongst them.

One of my favorite parts of all the extras is they allusions they make to Chris Evan's former Marvel role without ever specifically saying it.

I managed to hit Target on Saturday and pick up the bonus disc, but have not gotten around to viewing it yet.  Good to hear that it was worth getting.  I still can't believe they had a $19.999 new release for one of the best selling movies of all time, including the Blue Ray, the DVD, and a 90 minute bonus video.  And if you used your red card it was only $19.   :o

I got the four (five) disc version for $19.99.  This includes the BD and DVD as well as the 3D BD and digital copies of the movie and soundtrack (disc 5 was the Target disc).

That all said, this thing has "extended edition" written all over it.  The extras are fairly anemic, or at least the seemed so to me.  Very little production stuff.

TV-9D9 / Re: The Clone Wars - Season Five Discussion Thread

This show is WAY too violent for this time slot.  It is one thing for battle droids to get sliced and diced, but seeing another living being get limbs cut off, or murdered in cold blood is a little much for Saturday morning fare.

I wasn't too impressed with this episode.  I have been 'meh' about the return of Maul, and this one didn't do anything to change my mind.  Anyone else think the design of Maul, especially his Sith ascot, is a little lame?

I too went from a Storm (which I DID like) to an iPhone4, and the difference is staggering.  Everything just works so much better on the iPhone.

I'm in.  Any machine (except CD-I) that plays Mario and Zelda will always have a place to live as long as I am alive.

Doesn't vader use a screen of sorts to communicate when he executes Admiral Ozzel?

248
I think that is clearly ford in that screen grab. 

It also reinforces Han's "I'll fool them by pretending to be one of them" that he tried in the Death Star in ANH.   RotJ is all about revisiting themes from the other films, especially with Han.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Recent Vintage Collection Purchases

Last week I grabbed a B-Wing from K-Mart for $8 (!!) and then found a B-Wing pilot on the pegs at the WalMart near me (not sure where this came from) and grabbed it for $4, both items to go into my son's tobybox for the future.  A full B-Wing setup for $12?  Sweet!

Hasbro isn't just clueless with it's "realistic" collection offerings.  I have been buying my son the Marvel Superhero Adventures packs.  They have a really nice array of Spidey villains, but it seems like they all come with one villain, one Spidey, and all the Spideys are the same!  I don't need an army of them!  At least offer Spidey in some sort of alternative outfit or something.

Because you live in the upper midwest, and you have to compete with all of those Norwegians and Swedes for Thor figures!

I finished reading through to issue 100 of the comics, and I liked it a lot.  Certainly many "Holy s#it!" moments in it.  I can't wait to see the TV version of The Governor.

I have never seen this before!  What is it from?

TIE Pilot I find odd though.  Neat pistol though too.

 

That was the first thing I noticed.  Very cool.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Big Items of the Future!

I'd say it will be released.  It won't be regarded as the tentpole that they hoped TPM was, but Hasbro was coy enough about it to make me think that LFL will be announcing AotC3D at C6.
