I need Martin and Maggie, then I'm done with Series 2.

Finished them off over lunch hour. Still need Milhouse from series 1

Caught Mad Max last night... definitely the best one and visually it's one of the best I've seen. I can see it winning multiple Oscars for costume design, cinematography, sound editing, directing, editing, makeup, production design, score, screenplay. It is that strong on all levels.

Honestly Max/Tom Hardy doesn't talk a whole hell of a lot and I think Charlize Theron/Furiosa takes center stage.

The movie is nihilistic, creepy, loud and fast-paced and the story is pretty straight forward with a satisfying climax. I saw it in RealD 3D and that added quite a bit to the experience as I'm not a fan of 3D in general. There is so much thrown at the screen though that its almost a requirement to watch it in that format.

Definitely catch it in theaters as some of the scale of the battles would be diminished in a smaller format.

Thoughts from those that have seen it - OK for my two 8 (almost 9) year olds? 

I've seen mixed reviews on language/violence levels... especially since it starts out with a "bang".

Should be okay. There are a few swears in there; "****", "son of a bitch" and some innuendo ex: Tony teasing BW and Hulk about "hiding the zucchini". Nothing too traumatic I guess. A few nice cleavage shots of Black Widow and Scarlett Witch, too.  ;)

Has EE offered this wave yet?  I couldn't find it on their site.  Or is it sold out and removed already?

Should (re)launch on many sites on Sunday/Monday

Saw it last night as well, thought is was really well done. A bit plodding at times, but needed to break up the virtually non-stop action. Vision and Wanda/SW were the stand outs here. Surprised by the storyline focus that Hawkeye got.

"Veronica" - love how that was handled and how it worked as a containment system/parts store
Ultron - Spader seemed to have a great time with that role.
Humor overall was good, and the opening word in the film was "****".
Loved seeing the return of War Machine and Falcon - especially at the end at the headquarters/
Vision was very well done. I'm not sure how much of a departure from the comics they took with his origins but it seems to work here.
The twins were great with Scarlett Witch being my fav and I like this version of Quicksilver more that the DOFP version.
Effects overall were amazing

Baron Von Strucker seemed to just be thrown in there
I could have done without the TWO sappy love subplots but I gave decent character dev. so I guess it's okay.

Two thumbs up, I need to see this in IMAX 3D yet as i've heard a lot of great things and you get to see The Force Awakens trailer with that presentation too. :)

Im not a member but I couldn't resist the kit either. I understand there is a fair amount of finishing to do to get it to 501st standards. Ultimately, I'm not sure I even care about that but I like having the option.

This was just a matter of time.  Release date?

August I think.

Since there isn't any new product shipping for those lines (SL & MS) until fall,  I'm guessing they're just deactivating those DPCIs temporarily and bring them back with the line look refresh.

Anyone know where those figure stands are from?

The round ones are ProTech, I don't know about the oblong stands.

Guys, I plan to finalize my Kubrick display around June/July, so rest assured that once I have finalized my collection, Medicom will announce something new to make me redo everything.  Trust me, we'll have the new ones announced by August.   ;)

Lol. We're going to hold you to that. Pics please when you're done.

It does seem that Medicom does still hold Star Wars license as they're still releasing various action figure, haven't seen and be@rbricks in a while though, but I'd be stunned if we saw any more kubricks.

... But to rub salt in to our collective wounds here's what I imagine we'd see if they did a series 11 for The Force Awakens (none of that DX business):

Hypothetical Series 11 - The Force Awakens - December 2015:

Regular Figures
_ Kylo Ren - 1:12
_ New Stormtrooper - 3:12
_ Finn - 3:12
_ Rey - 2:12
_ Poe Dameron - 2:12
_ BB-8 - 1:12

Chase Figures
_ Finn in Stormtrooper Uniform - 2:48
       - Found in regular Finn Box
_ Chrometrooper w/ cape - 1:96
       - Found in Stormtrooper box. 1 per master case, but only 1/2 of master cases contain him
_ Don't know, maybe whoever Andy Serkis character is or a returning OT cast member like Luke - 1:96
       - 1 per master case, but only 1/2 of master cases contain him

TFA DX Series 1 I hear you get to build Rey's fudgsicle speeder.

Now give me my Rebels line damn it!

Ezra 2:12
Kanan 3:12
Zeb 2:12
Hera 1:12
Stormtrooper 3:12
Chopper 1:12

Chase Figures
- Inquisitor in Kanan box 2:48
- Stormtrooper Commander in Stormtrooper box 1:96
- Sabine found in Hera boxes in 1/2 of master cases
- Agent Kallus in Chopper boxes in 1/2 of master cases
