For a limited time (10/15-10/21), Funko Pop Vinyl figures and Reaction Figures are Buy Three, Get One Free at Entertainment Earth. 

EE seems to be running 20-25% off sales on the ReAction stuff quite frequently.  Can't tell if it's a marketing thing or if they're just trying to unload stock that isn't moving very quickly...

I think the Revoltech version may look a little better than the Bandai one.

That is because the Bandai Stormie pictured there is a 1/12 Model Kit figure (which is why it's less than $20 and not $40-50).  It's a snap-together kit, not an "action figure" per se.

The Bandai SH Figuarts action figure Stormtrooper will look much nicer as that is Bandai's collector figure line.

I have the 4 different 6" versions of Vader on order: Hasbro, MAFEX, Revoltech and Bandai.

Which Bandai Vader - the Movie Realization Samurai or the 1/12 Model Kit Vader?  And don't forget about the Bandai SH Figuarts Vader, which will be going up for pre-order in the near future! ;)

Not sure if this is news, but I have been seeing these figs at Targets and WalMarts, usually near the trading card sections they keep near the registers.

Any Predators?

I have seen those reports too but all the stores around here have out is %^&*( bobbleheads...

I didn't read the Civil War series, but I understand the gyst of it.  Still,in the MCU, secret identities seem to have gotten thrown out the window.  Thor seems to be Thor all the time.  Cap's identity isn't secret and he hasn't really made a point of keeping the mask on at all times.  Tony Stark made his own public declaration at the end of the first Iron Man.  And Black Widow was outed publically at the end of "Winter Soldier".

I can see that there's the potential for the US government to want to get these super powered individuals under their control.  It looks like the first bits of that are already beginning to play out on Agents of SHIELD with the conflict between SHIELD and General Talbot's unit.  Factions like Talbot's within the military seem to be seeking to fill the void left by the destruction of SHIELD as an organization.

The thing is...  I don't know if I can see either Cap or Iron Man in the MCU taking sides against one another.  Their relationship has certainly been tense, but seems to have grown.  And both of them have encountered government forces in MCU films that would leave them skeptical about some sort of government registration.  But then we do have the events of Avengers - Age of Ultron set to take place, and no doubt that's going to shape the big picture storyline heading into Captain America 3.

Yeah, in a world without secret identities, the focus of Civil War would need to change quite a bit.  Not just registration, but submission to government monitoring or something.

In the comics, the government required people with superpowers to register.  Half the heroes were in favor.  Half were opposed.  And they battled across various books.  This was the arc where Spidey took off his mask.

Heh, this would be the shortest movie ever then. Everybody knows Tony Stark is Iron Man, Captain America has his own Smithsonian exhibit, and didn't Black Widow release all of SHIELD's information online?
I thought the exact same thing.  However, it does play into the themes of personal freedom that were the core of CA:TWS. 

This also make the idea of Spidey appearing in the MCU make more sense.
