And does anybody have any interest in those little dinky figurines?  Seems like such a waste of resources.

Looking at most of the convention pictures, it looks like the imagination well ran pretty dry...everything is ninja, zombie, or zombie ninja.  The updated classic characters are the only things I'd have been interested in, and they'll probably never see the light of day.  The fact that Kwinn got as far as he did and is unlikely to see a release is depressing.

To be fair, those DKR figures are basically Happy Meal garbage.

I love that Night Viper in an unholy way.

It's been a fun ride since 1998, but at this price point, I think I'm officially done with the hobby--at least buying at retail.  I may wait a few years and pick up loose stragglers I'm interested in off of eBay, and if I miss out on novelties like Darth Malgus, no biggie.  But this is getting to the point that it's no longer a distracting, fun little hobby.  I ride bicycles, and that's my high end expensive hobby.  I'll just put more money into that now.  Not saying I'll dump what I've got, but I'm just done paying this much for little dinky pieces of plastic.

I bit on that, but felt sick doing so. $25 for two guys and that's considered a good deal? I gotta get a new hobby...

I got a bundle of figures that includes a carded DG Snake Eyes.  I'd be happy to trade it to anyone for a DG Corbra Trooper or Shipwreck.  PM me if interested.  Thanks.

I'm with you on not all figures needing the extra articulation.  I generally prefer the swivel wrist to the ball-jointed, since the ball-jointed wrist just looks goofy.  And I'm totally with you on ankles; very few figures need this.  The exception is the new swivel ankle that they've put on the Red Ninjas, Storm Shadow, and Snake Eyes.  That is a cool joint for ninjas.  The Joe Trooper doesn't need it, though.

It was this one:

So far I've only heard of the new sculpt coming in the Heroic Age Heroes 3-Pack with Iron Man and Thor...

Found a Red Hulk, Grey Hulk, and translucent Iron Spidey this morning at a Wal Mart that has had nothing but two Absorbing Men for months.

Wow, after home runs on the BMF and AT-AT, this abortion ought to put the final nails in the large vehicle coffin built by the Attack Shuttle. With all the iconic vehicles screaming for the large scale treatment, Hasbro comes up with this? Who really wanted an MTT, much less one that sucks this bad? And for $160? I wouldn't pay $30.

Yeah, I'd think if Colton was out there, he'd be up on eBay.  Maybe you saw the Roadblock?  Both are bald and wearing tank tops, right?

Bingo. Weird. I'm sure when I bought the chubby version, I'd completely forgotten about the Saga version. I have way too much of this shot to keep straight. It's embarassing.
