Yeah, I am not buying that hunk of crap 3PO either. I was at Target today and saw the Legends/Endor 3 PO right next to the Vintage one and the Endor one blows it away. I can appreciate that they tried something different, but it is ugly.
The $19.99 sale is one of the temporary price reductions that last for about a month or so. Not sure if every Target is doing it, though. I would guess they will have the signs out when the resets are done.
Nice! I figured they'd make the sky sled at least, but the tank part is awesome! It'll cost, I'm sure, but it will sell out quickly. I liked most of the figure reveals except for the exclusive. That Little Red Riding Hood HM is going on ebay when I get him along with the map.
Anybody going to buy the 2011 Ecto-1 sub Matty will be offering this week? I'm going to buy one along with a MOTUC one to save on shipping and sale day headaches. I'm guessing Matty will make only a fixed amount of GB figures like they did with MOTU so the demand goes up and the line explodes. Mattel really is lucky they make toys people want, because they sure know how to screw with us.
Matty is putting up the non color changing version on Aug 2 along with it's other convention stuff. Plastic Man from DCU will not have the case the SDCC version has and the Starro spores will only be available at the con.
It's kind of like when they upped production for the first time on Tri Klops I think. That made figures last longer for a few months. Then January rolled around and things exploded. I might go for the sub now that they are also doing one for Ghostbusters and the shipping will be combined for everything. I'll have to see what the exclusive figures for both lines are.
The fact they include New Adventures and the 2000's stuff is enough to keep me from buying a sub. All I really want is basic MOTU figures. I guess I will continue to fight the WSOD for now. If I miss a figure, I know they'll offer it again.
Watch this week's episode of Mall Cops:Mall of America on TLC if you get a chance. It's the "lockdown" episode and there is a quick segment at the beginning with the Twin Cities Ghostbusters. They had their full gear on and the custom made Chevy Ecto 1 that I have witnessed on area highways before.
