I love those Conan figures, but they have to be the most fragile McToys I've ever owned. Next to my Hicks figure that broke right out of the package, I mean.

Thanks for mentioning that - I'll be sure to be careful when I'm opening them.   :)

Just picked up the 1956 Elvis "The Year In Gold" for my sister. She will be a happy camper next weekend.   ;D

I really wish Todd would get off his ass and show some pics of the new Simpsons sets...I've been dying to see these ever since they announced acquisition of the license almost, what, a year ago??!!

I actually find the concept of McFarlane having them to be really scary.  I don't play with my figures much and seldom put the WOS stuff on a playset to have it talk, so they're all statues to me, much as I expect McF to do with them. 

I'm mostly expecting them to do Treehouse of Horror stuff, much as GG has with the bust ups, but in larger scale.  I'd love to see Kang and Kodos done and will naturally snap up any Homer that is done.  Diorama type stuff could be really interesting too with multiple characters in a scene.

Jay, the Los Feliz TRU had 3 each of all the Military figures, plus the deluxe one, at about 4pm yesterday.

They look really cool but I can't dive into another line.

I was hoping they were going to show the 3D album covers and an Axl to go with Slash. Oh well, i will be buying Slash though.

Anyone a big Spawn figure fan?  This one looks wild for the upcoming Series 28 in September, the box set of Spawn vs Urizen.  This character must have come along after I stopped reading the Spawn comic book, but it looks like it would be an amazing display.

Thanks for the link!

There's a few older Spawn figures I'm tempted to grab - the "simpler" style parallels the POTF2 SW figures - somewhat nostalgic.   ;)
