Chuckle.  Our young first rounder landed in Winnipeg.  Being a Twins fan I thought I'd post this pick:



He can share my baseball misery while lifting up my hockey team.

Considering the presence Funko has at Target stores, I have to think these will turn up there.  And maybe at Barnes and Noble, too.

WTF Amazon, those are all preorders! Boo!

I was just telling a friend the other day that I found it weird that they would wait til after the season is over to get these things out.

They all look great though, just wish I had them in hand already. Glad to hear of an actual sighting!

I'm wondering if the elbow is a ball hinge and if there is wrist articulation.  That would sell me.  The hinged knees are fine IMO but the elbows need to have that full range I feel.

Even 45 degree angle cut elbows allow for holding a weapon with 2 hands.

The sculpts are mile from the ReAction stuff.  As good as any modern Hasbro fig it appears.  If the articulation is there at that minimum, the price is cool by me.

Saw Independence Day: Resurgence - the "B" Cinemascore rating is generous IMHO. The 33%/41% ratings on Rotten Tomatoes is much more appropriate.

The movie is an absolute mess and was SO focused on getting to the next sequel that it made this movie have more of a "ok, on to the next goal" feel that it sucks any and all enjoyment out of the flick.

There is one major plot point that, for anyone who watches it reads sci-fi will see coming a mile away and end up leaving you wondering why the timing has ended up occurring this way, even though it's given a very weak explanation (I don't want to say more for fear of spoiling things).

I'm starting to think that Will Smith might have been on to something when he turned down this movie, especially if he read the script, and that's from the guy who starred in "After Earth".

I had less than a minute to look at these.  I have my daughter with me, and an impatient 3 year old will really dictate the way things go in a hurry.  So I couldn't take in the articulation in that brief window of time.

However, I did find these individually listed on Amazon, and the images on those listings give you some indication that these are a step up from Funko Reaction figures.  Just from looking at a couple of them on Amazon, they look like they've got about 7 or 8 POA at least.

White Walker

Night King

Jon Snow

Ghost

Ygritte

Tormund Giantsbane

Samwell Tarly

Rattleshirt

Styr (Magnar of Thenn)

The Wall playset with Tyrion Lannister

Any telling in person just how articulated they are Nick?  Just curious since that may be my deciding factor ultimately.
