Hall of Justice / Re: Batman The Dark Knight

I scavenged around to get the entire DKR collection for my son for his 9th birthday.  The goddamn piece of **** ************* bat signal doesn't even ******* work.  Gather up all those ******* piece of **** fuckass pieces together including Ra's Al Ghul, John Blake and Jim Gordon, put the pieces together, put the batteries in, and nada.

**** you, Mattel.  **** you in the ass with a clydesdale dick without lube or even spit.

That's very true.  Although I've seen the Scarlet Witch wave in stores once (and remnants of it another time), I never saw the Beta Ray bill wave in stores.  But I've seen them online for a couple bucks over retail plus shipping.  Not worth it for most figs out there, but for these, I think I'd pay tHe premium.

These  last couple waves have had some of the best action figures ever.  Punisher, Scarlet Witch, Kraven, Beast, and Beta Ray Bill are all outstanding, high quality figures.  With the Star Wars line regressing in quality and GI Joe being non-existent, MU is the line to beat, IMO.

Boy, those didn't last long.

That looks terrific!  Where did you get that MK set?  I could really use one for an upcoming episode of my Chewie-inspired Marvel Universe Photonovel.

I saw the Kang/Scarlet Witch wave at Wal-Mart.  I have the revision case coming from BBTS but picked up a few just in case I want to check out paint jobs.  Interestingly, there were two Kangs on the pegs and they seemed to have different face paint.  One was very glossy, and the other had a flat finish.  I picked up the one with the flat finish.  I don't know if that counts as a legitimate variation or anything, but it was a pretty discernible difference.

I just got notice that my order is in for processing on this wave, and I'm jazzed to finally get some new figures.  But while checking around, I noticed another revision coming up which convinces me that MU has to be the dumbest line in the world when it comes to case assortments.  Exhibit A: this, coming out in November.  Every single one of those has been readily and easily available, only a couple are commanding any sort of demand on the secondary market, one of them being Juggs, who is in this month's revision case.  Why they can't stick a couple Visions or something in one of these garbage revision assortments is beyond me. 

Damn it, Jesse.  Now you made me wish I bought two.

I picked one of these up today.  There were three there, and I was tempted to snag them all, but after tax they're almost $25 each, and that's pretty steep for this thing.  But it's pretty nice.

And Godfather II.

I asked them to price match the Ewok set with the online price, and the clerk looked something up and rang it up at $32.99, and then let me use a $5 off $25 coupon, which wasn't too bad of a deal. I want that new Porkins, but not bad enough to drop for that cruddy set.

The individual carded ones are worse.  Same crappy articulation with an even worse paint job.

I looked at a couple of the single carded Chitauri the other day and it looked like, although they'd the nixed elbow and knee articulation, they left an ankle joint.  An ankle joint without knee joints makes absolutely zero sense. 

The Vintage Collection / Re: Celebration VI

I would have thought we would have seen pictures up at some of the sites by now too. (IMHO, Facebook does not count because most people are blocked from seeing that at work, and anyway why would you want to drive traffic to their site, but not your own? but I digress...)

Well, we are all fans first and foremeost, so maybe we're all busy enjoying ourselves instead of wasting precious show time editing and posting dozens of photos. :P

Like a few others have said, there isn't really anything "NEW" at the Hasbro booth yet.  Most everything is just stuff announced at SDCC.  There were some hints that there will be some new stuff shown at the panel, so standard protocol for them.

So is someone going to ask about the "distribution problem" or is Hasbro going to get a free pass again?

If you guys really want me to waste some of my ten-minutes with Hasbro beating them over the head with the obvious elephant in the room, I can, but to me it's a waste.  Vintage is dead, headed for clearance and they are re-booting with Droid Factory.

If you really need to hear Hasbro state the obvious, then check out what they said when my pal Jayson at Yakface asked them today.

Jeff, I would personally appreciate it if you would stop enjoying yourself and upload pictures and whatnot to the front page.  Also, if you get another chance, please do ask Hasbro about the distribution.  Feel free to use the following as a script:

Hey you cocksucking dillholes, what the ****?  Me and a bunch of other nerds are having a tough time finding toys, so I have one question in two parts: 1) Why do you suck so bad, and 2) How and when are we going to get our goddamn toys?

Then say "Keep it real, yo," and drop the mike.
