I was just showing that the Punisher can work in a modern story.  I'm looking forward to the next season of Daredevil!

After three Punisher films, I don't really know if the character works anymore.  Simply because The Punisher was very much a product of his times.  He was a New York character when New York was VERY dangerous.  And the whole concept of the everyman turned vigilante seems like one that played much better during the heyday of his books, back in the 1990's.

Are you sure about that?

I can't go, but if anyone who is can get some shots of the Anovos presentation (especially the ANH Stormtrooper armor), I would really appreciate it.

I expect to see him in some sort of cameo role.  Like perhaps at the end when the Rebels steal the plans and escape?

I feel sorry for anyone with a Han Solo and Chewbacca focus to their collection who does not have an unlimited income.

I'm anxious, gotta admit.  Not in a bad way, just in a "I want confirmation" kind of way so I know what my financial future holds, ya know?  Is that weird?  Probably.  :-\

Not here.  Outside of's probably kinda weird.  :D

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: The Force Awakens Trailers

I think it's more like an homage to the OT.

I only picked up the C-3PO and the Leia.  You summed up my thoughts on the C-3PO perfectly, and I'm actually mad that the detonator is sculpted to Leia's hand.  If I had known that, I would not have purchased that figure!

The next episode isn't until September?  WTF?

I can 100% attest that I wasn't haha.  I always wanted articulation. :)

I was glad that they were able to give us good articulation along with good sculpts, but did not go the route of the vintage GI Joe 4" figures.  The metal elbow joints would never have been good in Star Wars.

I will be disappointed with the de-evolution of the figures if that's where we go but I will NEVER be done buying. Less collecting competition I guess.

I like your look at it, Nick, but it would be too much of a step back for me.  I'll just be buying Star Wars toys for my sons if they de-evolve the 4" figures like that.

Isn't it kind of funny how we were happy with 5 POA up until the SA Clone in the Saga line?

I would hope that after nearly 40 years, they wouldn't give up on the 3.75" line.  But if they do, it's been a good's just a shame that there won't be any TFA figures in my collection.

The Legacy Collection / Re: Recent Legacy Purchases

That's almost over priced.  :D

I need to check at home but yeah I can't wait to be "done". 

I've decided that when my Wave 8 stuff gets here from EE, I'll save Carbonite Han to open last. 

That way, should the dark whispers pan out and Hasbro announces that the SA 3.75" collector line is indeed dead, I'll always have the knowledge that the last new 3.75" collector figure I opened was Han Solo.  ;)

I got my Han and the Jawas today.  You picked a great figure if it's your last to open ever.
