5 POA, looks nice though...I'm really interested in what this show may be.  I really enjoyed CW and look forward to a weekly fix of SW again.

Both...but this Target didn't have anything but Caps and the Winter Soldier left or there is another case pack.

The Legends were 2x each of the Caps...must have missed the rest

Happy Festivus Matt and to everyone else out there...just looking through this thread, remember when you died?  Yeah, me either :-[

If my friend were still alive.  He would have had a healthy bump of this thread.  Since he's dead, I'm going to bump it in his memory

Happy Festivus Everyone, especially you, Matty Burchall.  I Love You and Miss You :'(

Caught an IMAX show tonight...can't say enough good things. I really hope the rumors of Benedict Cumberbatch lobbying to be in EpVII are true...he brought Smaug to life and just oozed evil.  After a little bit of a rough start Desolation brings back the Middle Earth year can't come soon enough

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Amazon Droid Factory Multi-Pack

I got one for $14.99 about a half hour ago...I'd suggest you keep checking

I really liked the book, and I generally hate EU books.  Nick is right, it is shocking how far into the movies Plagueis is alive is worth a read if you can find it cheap.

The one arguement against that Nick though is that even within a catagory as broad as "Action Figures" Star Wars isn't even selling that well. 

I know Episode VII is going to be ga ga gangbusters and will have the full spate of product we expect but I agree with you, it isn't going to be the SAME product we expect.  Video game/Interactive model is the now and it is going to happen. 

I also want to reemphasize the point that part of the reason for the decline is lack of media.  TMNT is buoyed by a cartoon, SW has nothing but us, 30-50 year old men with disposable income.  That isn't exactly Hasbro's niche...they want to be more in the Turtle world unfortunately (for us)

I just saw you can break it down further to just Action Figures:

Top 100 ActioN Figures

I see
#70 6" Sandtrooper
#85 6" R2-D2
#86 4" Darth Vader
#94 6" Darth Maul

Pretty sad :-[

Check out the Top 100 Toys selling right now on Amazon...

Top 100 Action Figures and Playsets

#21 SW Angry Birds Telepods
#49 SW Angry Birds Telepods
#58 SW Angry Birds
#63 Darth Vader Voice Helmet
#80 Darth Tater

Yesterday when I looked 6" Sandy was like #98, but isn't on the list today.  To me that is NOT a good sign as to the health of the line in general.  That said, look at how few action figures outside of TMNT is on that list...I think our beloved action figures are not in favor at all right now.

Middle Earth / Re: The Hobbit -LEGO

So, still no'd think they would release a Smaug set with this movie but have failed to do so.  I just do not understand the Movie biz and their reluctance to show off any of the villains before the movie hits.  Is it really that big of a secret?  He is a dragon. 

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: Willrow Hood
« on: December 4, 2013, 10:19 AM »
Thanks guys for the tip, I am now the owner of not one but two Willrow Hood prototypes.  The seller of the one on eBay was actually a former Hasbro employee.  He was not involved in the creation of Willrow but his friend was...the two pieces are identical down to the markings...the Willrow Hood collection continues to grow.
