I don't know if that was it--at least, not the only thing.  General's Joes had a report from someone who saw the test screening and said it was terrible.  No character development, enormous plot holes, and various scenes and characters thrown together in a hodge podge of senseless sequencing.  The returns probably came back negative, and the studio figured it would be better to try and fix it than to let it tank.  Or, at very least, to enhance it with 3D to make sure that most of the people who only see it once will pay a $5 premium to see the piece of ****.

I don't think the sky is falling quite as much as people think.  If they were being yanked, I'm pretty sure they would have been yanked from HTS first.  You can still get a full set of wave 1 with free shipping there.

No stands?! The terrorists have won.

Snagged Zartan, Snake Eyes, green trooper, Storm Shadow, Cobra Commander and a Red Ninja. Left Duke, a Cobra trooper, and Roadblock.

The green trooper looks like Master Chief.  SS and CC are the standouts.

I found the movie versions of Hawkeye and Black Widow and two comic series Skrull Soldiers today. The Hawkeye head sculpt kinda sucks, but Black Widow is great.

Edit: got home and opened 'em up...holy smokes, Black Widow's good. Excellent sculpt, great paint job (on mine, anyway) and full articulation including ankles and wrists as well as double jointed knees. She's the highlight of this line so far, by far.

Finally saw the Lizard from this wave. Look like the aliens in V. No labcoat. Easy pass, though I may pick up an ultra poseable movie costume Spidey.

I saw some of these today...barely noticed them with that ****** packaging.  The figures I saw (Roadblock with the gun-hand and the Snake Eyes and Firefly motorcycles) looked like total crap. Happy Meal toys. I'm a huge Joe nerd, but so far, I'm extremely unimpressed.

I haven't seen them mentioned; if so I missed it and am being redundant, but I saw some Avengers 4 Packs exclusive to Wal Mart.  There were two sets; one with Black Widow, Cap, Thor, and Iron Man, and another with Hulk, Loki (version from the Frost Giant set), Hawkeye, and another Iron Man.  I picked up the Hulk one for the Hulk and the Loki.

I was still a little groggy when I posted that, but I'll just say, it was far and away the coolest thing I've ever seen. So much more than a was a whole theatrical performance.  The meaning has changed a bit, too, so there is more than just spectacle. Instead of being almost self-indulgently introspective about the difficulties of being a rock star, it's taken on a bigger meaning about society and togetherness in spite of institutional and commercial forces. It was just amazing, and really a dream come true to have seen.

Holy ****...that was a long way off back then.  For some reason I thought your post was about his first leg.

In this case, I'll let you know how it goes.  Don't know how I'll fare on the psychedelic substance front, but I'm sure I'll imbibe something.

Saw the show last night. It was pretty epic. I'd never seen anything like that.

I think I already know the answer, since god hates me and all, but any word on whether these are hitting Disneyland in the next, oh, say, five days?

I got a postcard in the mail today regarding my Boba Fetts:

We have received your redemption request for the Boba Fett Prototype Armor collectible figure - thank you!  This promotion was extremely popular - so much so that Hasbro has to make more figures to fulfill all the orders.  As such, there will be a delay in receiving your figure(s).  Your order is scheduled to ship on July 20, 2012.

It goes on to say I can cancel if I want.  Jeez, I thought for sure this would be a way I could get a new figure sometime before January (which is when I found the TPM wave).  Ugh.

I hope these hit Disneyland...and soon.  I'll be there for a few days at the end of this month.  If not however, I'll live.  They're cool and the idea is great, but man, I've got a lot of astromechs.

I know it sounds horrible - but at SDCC and CVI this summer, I really hope Team Dimwitz at Hasbro are there and get their assess handed to them by the fans/collectors...

That doesn't sound horrible to me.

Horrible of me to say... but yeah - the "evil" side of me, sincerely hopes it happens.

It ******' A will.

Nice pictures; hi res enough to read the file cards.  Not too keen on Roadblock being a ninja, but whatever, I guess.
