I stopped in Walmart and they have a new display of Series 8 minifigures out.  First bag I picked up had the Evil Robot in it.  Figured with that luck I might find the Pirate but checked a couple others and don't think I found him so I left.  Still, not bad for randomly grabbing one on a whim.

I randomly picked out 3 bags of Series 8 a couple weeks ago and pulled two freakin' Fairies!  Those cases must have been lousy with her.  I didn't care for S8 that much.  I pulled the Diver and Alien and then randomly picked the Conquistador.  I wanted the Robot and Pirate Captain but never found them...and that was about it.  Wasn't interested in any of the others.  My Target just put out a small display of Series 7 and I pulled an Aztec and another Galaxy Patrol figure, though.

I'm looking forward to Series 9.  Definitely in for the Alien Avenger, Battle Mech and Forrest Maiden and would also pick up the Cyclops, Mermaid, Heroic Knight and maybe Roman Emperor.

Spotted the Kraven, Beast, Scarlet Witch wave at the TRU Express that's in the local Mall.  Picked up Kraven, really excellent looking figure.  Haven't opened him up yet but plan on it.

I didn't think the whole wave was there but couldn't remember all that was supposed to be in it...think I missed She Hulk and Beta-Ray Bill.  Still, was surprised to see them because I wasn't sure that the store would actually rotate in much new stock since it's only there for the holidays, but these weren't in the store when I was there last week.

Other Toy Lines / Re: NECA Gears of War 3 3/4 scale
« on: November 30, 2012, 03:18 PM »
I haven't played the game but I have seen the larger scale figures and they look pretty good.  I'd be interested in a couple of 4" scale figures to go with the Joes or SW figs.  Hopefully they'll be quality.  And, yes, if this is good for them, I hope they bring Predator and Alien to this scale eventually.

Since we know all the figures but the 13th, it's just the order that's going to be a surprise so my thought is it's not that big a deal.  But I would like to be surprised by the final figure.

I vote keep it here, but have no problem not spoiling it for others by wating 2 or 3 days after mine arrive to talk about them, unless they're mentioned somewhere else.

I recognize that larger sites need to generate income to help keep them running, but I swear to God, every time I go to RS they've found another way to add a pop-up, pop-under or flashing banner to waste my time in navigating to what I'm looking for.

Now, they have a pop-under ad linked to the Forum link on their top menu.  Even TVGuide.com and CNN don't do that anymore and they had pop-unders for years.

Don't know if it matters.  I'm sure that the at least one or two of the Joe sites will be posting the info as soon as they have it, trying to be the first to break the news.  So, if you follow them on Twitter or read their news pages, you'll probably see it before it hits here.

I don't really think it's that big of a deal.  I say post it here.

Should have posted this sooner but Walmart had a 650 piece set of Lego on Black Friday for $15 or about $0.02 per piece.  There was a set of Lego and a set of Duplo in tall, hexagon shaped boxes in the aisle next to the Avengers and SW 8-packs when I found them.  Your stores might still have them and since there was no starting price listed, they'll probably still ring up for that much if you find them.

Saw a few of these today. Not sure if the store started out with as many of these as they did the Star Wars sets but if they did, they were selling a lot better.  Think I saw most of the figures in the set above but maybe not the exact mix.

I did notice that they had the Warriors Three, two were in the same 8-pack, but didn't see a Sif. Anyone find her in one of these sets?

I ended up coming home with a Movie Heroes set that had all of the Wave 2 figs, which I didn't have.

The thing about silencers is that you have to  combine them with heavier, slower moving ammunition to get a really quiet firearm.  All movies and TV shows overdue it on how quiet they make their stuff sound.  The two things that make the most noise are the expanding gases as the bullet exits the barrel and the sonic boom from the bullet.  Steel wool in a can will capture those gases and help eliminate some of that sound but if there's still going to be some noise.

I'm with Jesse on the weapons for the hunt. Ideally they'd have shotguns with slugs loaded.  In woods you want something with range but also that fires a large, heavy bullet that can cut through brush better.  Maybe a rifle from the AK family or a good .308 would be okay but without really pouring over the show, I got the impression a lot of what they had were 9mm or .223 military rifles with some hunting rifles.  But bolt action hunting rifles wouldn't necessarily be the best choice either, for woods like those.

If I was hunting someone in the woods I'd want shotguns and some decent revolvers (.357, .44) or a nice .45 auto.  I'd take a good 9mm for backup but I wouldn't make that my first choice necessarily.
