Watto's Junk Yard / Re: 'The Hobbit' movie
« on: December 15, 2012, 08:50 PM »
I'm sure that I'm going to be in the minority for saying this, but I wasn't overly impressed with this one as I was with the LOTR trilogy.  Yes, the scenery was great and the costumes were great, and it's great that they finally brought the Hobbit to the big screne.  But other than Andy Serkis' performance (which was the best part of the movie IMO), that's about it...  It just didn't have the same affect on me that the LOTR trilogy did when I watched it.  There just wasn't that 'real' feeling to this movie.  There was a lot more CGI feeling to this than I was expecting.

I agree with you.  Waaaaay too long, too.  I thought Martin Freeman as Bilbo was very good, though.  Just okay, in my book, which makes it a bit of a disappointment compared to the first LOTR trilogy, which I thought was wonderful all the way through.

The cost of shipping one of those mothers would likely minimize the value a bit; they're big and heavy.  But just FYI, there are different versions, one with silver legs, which is the more common release, and then a classic comic color variant that has purple legs.  If you find one with purple legs, that can be good trade bait.

Another thing to look for is Galactus.  Again, there are two versions, one that's lighter colored with blue and purple, and one that', dark blue and dark purple.  The Dark Galactus is the variant. I found two of them at TJ Maxx a couple months ago (kept one for me and gave the other to my friend who runs this Galactus fan site.  Either Galactus is kind of hard to find, but most people who collect this line have one, but if they don't, they'll want him really bad.

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.
