The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 7

But Commander Doom?  I saw the Clone Wars episode featuring Doom.  At the time I didn't get the connection with his armor design, and that's probably because I didn't catch his name during the show.  But now?  The armor design and name combined actually look a little silly to me.  I get the whole Doctor Doom homage, but this seems to have gone overboard.

I'm not a big Marvel Comics guy, so I didn't catch that at first either.  Same for Commander THORn, with his z-6 'hammer' cannon and the painted wings on his helmet.

Makes me wonder how many more Marvel ClonesTM there are hidden in the Clone Wars...

Are they planning to make more of these someday?

That's how it feels to me- that they're building up to Season 2.  The Doc and Zola, Sousa letting his feelings known for Peggy, and Peggy spilling Steve's blood into the East River (in a sense, letting him go so that she move on and be with Sousa).

As for Dottie living, perhaps there's more to her (Winter Soldier) than we know?  I thought we'd also get some info on the Winter Soldier project but maybe I'll have to wait until Season 2.  Also, what's Dottie's purpose now? Rescue the Doc and Zola.

I enjoyed it.  Good fun.

So...Agent Carter is in the books now. I ended up liking this more than I thought I would, even though it sort of fizzled at the end with the whole Kingsmen ripoff. Not sure I got the point of letting Dottie live though, or pairing up the Doc with Zola. Are they planning to make more of these someday?

And hats off to Parks & Recreation for a very enjoyable 7 season run...what a great finale. This show was never particularly great, but it had many memorable moments and ultimately felt like time well spent to me when I watched. (Never missed an episode)

I know I'm waiting it out a lil while looking for something else I want to hit pre-order.  Hoping it hits soon before I have to commit to an order.  :-\

Picked up three of the movie sets today - Hulk Buster Smash, Avengers Hydra Showdown and Hydra Fortress Smash.

The Toys R Us where I found them had all of the other sets as well, but I want to hold back on some sets until June pending the Winter Soldier polybag promo that is rumored to be coming...

Whatever happened with Northstar? Did he ever get released?

Nope.  I don't actually know what happened.  "Cancelled" I think, but definitely not released.

I'm really getting so truly anxious for the Jawa 2-pack.

I have to wonder how vigorously Hasbro is going to take on THE FORCE AWAKENS  before they start getting back to characters from the OT and PT again.  I can think of at least 10 really solid character choices from both trilogies that would make for excellent 6" figures.

Keeping core characters like that in reserve for later releases is probably being done to prolong the life of the line.

Yeah, I get that.  I guess I was trying to say I'm surprised they could control themselves that way.  I thought for sure they'd do ANH Leia before Boushh or ANH Luke before Stormtrooper Luke, but I get why they are saving those versions (and Padme and Jango and the rest of the mains they haven't done yet).

I'm a little bit surprised that we haven't seen the characters Jeff mentioned as well, although I do see the point of holding something back.  The future lineups are so tough to predict with this whole "new movie every year" schedule we are approaching.  So far, the 6" Black Series has been a very slow pace - which is fine - but doesn't necessarily leave a lot of slots open for each year.  We've seen those leaked pics apparently of 6" stuff from the Force Awakens, so I wonder if we'll see a lot of OT (or PT) characters in the upcoming years.  Then again, looking at Marvel's Legends line (also 6"), they are sure cranking those out this year.  It is possible we might see an increase in the SW line as well (especially if they just go to 5 POA for the 3 3/4").  There is just so much up in the air with the line these days, and Toy Fair didn't do anything to clear things up.  It will just be nice to know the direction of the line coming up, even if we don't know a ton about specific releases.
