This will be interesting to see.  Both of their power sets are pretty tricky to show live.  Quicksilver's superspeed has been done before, but not very well IMO.  Making him race while everyone else is moving at normal speed could look silly.  And Wanda's hex powers of probability are hard enough to explain to people, let alone show on the big screen.  I'd be concerned that the average Joe who doesnt know her wont really get her powers.

She'll also offer fanboy eye candy.

Got preview tix to IM3 for Wed evening.  My son is more excited than I.

With a daughter who went through a fairy phase, I can say that Disney did a decent job with the direct to video Tinkerbell movies.  If it is not an online deal with Netflix, I think they can pull it off.  I have t least five big storylines I'd like to see wrapped up a bit more

Maybe it can move to Netflix.  Especially with the Disney deal recently

217 unique figures.  Wow.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Rumor: No more 3D Prequel Releases?

I'll be among the first ones to say that TPM 3D was underwhelming.  But I loved taking my son and his friends to see it on the big screen.  And the footage from Ep 2 and 3 looked pretty good.  $43,456,382 was the gross for TPM, not terrible given all the factors.  But it was promoted heavily and the cost of the release had to be high.

I feel for Hasbro if they have been left out of the loop. And that takes a lot for me to say.

As I looked through my local Target's reset, it made me think about how bad a year Hasbro had last year in particular for boys toys.  Kre-o has been rotting for two years to the point where I see no shelf space dedicated at Target.  Spider-Man sucked for them.  Star Wars had distribution problems up the ying yang.  TPM did not take off, Battleship bombed, GI JOE got bumped.  Add it together and it is no wonder if the 3D releases and Disney just pushed the uncertainty beyond acceptable risk.

What I find in the release of this statement is that prices will be going up regardless. I don't think there has been a time where Hasbro has said that they were doing things to keep the retail cost down and have it not go up anyway.

Yeah, that is my concern too.  I find the price/value piece an odd rationale.  And one that just does not ring true to me.  Maybe the projected costs for sustaining the line beyond 2 waves could be understood.  I imagine all of these early waves were sunk costs.

Honestly, I just hope they provide a good explanation and an exciting plan moving forward.

Looks cool.  Check out the Japanese version if you want confirmation of the baddie.

Justin,  PM me as I am missing the confirmation.

I went to two WMs here in MN.  At one the toys were staged in infant clothing.  Just one tray of Avengers and one of CW.  at the other I found them atop some island pallets randomly located near toys.  No sign of the avengers one
