Nothing but problems on my end.  My email to customer service has already been send.  First Lasso errors, and now it won't even connect.

I just got my stormtrooper mini-bust yesterday (thanks Jim!!!), and I have a question.  On the helmet, there are those two black post-thingies (not sure how else to describe them).  On my bust, one of the posts has the tip painted silver, but the other one is all black.  Looking at the box, it looks like they're both painted silver.  Has anyone else noticed this on theirs, or is mine just missing the silver paint on the second post?
I don't really care, but it seemed kind of odd.

DC has always been tempting to me too, but the relative lack of articulation to go with the ML stuff keeps me away.  There are some really nice pieces out there, but I don't need something else to collect, do I? 

Same here. I wish they'd rip ML and do a nice super-articulated Superman and Batman two pack... The prices that I've seen for these things are too high for me to even take a second glance, which is really my main complaint with DCD.

Prices are a bit high, but they seem to have come down in the last few months.  I've been eyeing them for a while, and only recently picked up a few (starting with the Hush Batman).  I'm a big ML fan, but I have to say that I actually prefer the dc direct stuff.  Sure they're not as articulated, but in many ways I think that's a positive thing.  More and more it seems to me that the articulation of the ML line is really detracting from the sculpt.  I would rather have a figure with less articulation that looks great.

The only two I really want are the Tie Pilot and the Royal Guard.  I agree though that a Chewie would be nice.

Went ahead and ordered series 9 from  Might as well take a shot at the chase pieces and guarantee a Galactus and the short packed figures, if there are any. 

If anyone wants to buy the spares, I'll have them (Scott too, I suspect). 

If there are any???  Lately it seems everything with ML is short packed.  I managed to track down a hawkeye and vision this weekend, but ended up paying more then I would have liked to for both (and my hawkeye doesn't even stand either  >:().

Does anyone have a spare Vision figure for trade/sale?  It'll end up loose, so I don't care about packaging condition.
Vision apparently never made it into the canadian case assortments, and being an Avengers fan he's a pretty key guy to be missing.

I've got a couple other ML figs for trade (Colossus, Electra, ML8 Cap), and maybe some other things depending on what people are looking for.

If this should be in the classified section, sorry.  Thought it would get more
notice here.  I'm getting close to going the ebay route, but Morgbug suggested I check here.

Has anyone picked up the Gamorrean yet?  I won an auction for one, but wasn't sure if he was actually out yet.  If you have him, how is he?

Then when they make an emperor and the royal guards, you're going to have to do the same thing.  C'mon, admit it - that would look sweet.
As for the diapers, I was working on the computer a few days ago and my wife walked in with the baby.  She was showing him around, saying "look at all the things you can play with when you're a bit older".
Time to buy a lock.

Yeah, it's been a while.  Anticipation is definitely building for series 3!!!

c'mon brent.  You know you need another.  eventually you're going to break down and get the vader - and then you're going to need two stormtroopers to flank him.  ;D

Yeah, and it gets better.  They finally fix the problem, and they're now sold out.  You've at least got one Brent, this was my shot at one.  It really ticks me off - I tried placing an order at 11:24am.  I immediately contacted their customer service, and by the time they sent me a response saying the problem is fixed there's no stock left.

Tried to order the luke stormie today, and had problems.  It says it accepts canadian orders, but doesn't seem set up to do so.  Then I tried ordering it and having it shipped to someone in the US, and it wouldn't accept my credit card.   >:(

Hey, thanks for the welcome.  I just got my batman kubricks yesterday, and they're not a bad fit at all.  if the card was even an extra quarter inch it would be perfect.  So yeah, I guess they're bigger.

I don't know if the carded SW kubricks are the same size, but I tried putting one of the batman animated kubricks in a star case yesterday, and it's almost a perfect fit.  I'm guessing the SW kubricks are the same.
