Finally got around to watching the video Jesse posted.  While I don't love the paint job, the rest of this thing looks awesome.  So many cool electronics between the elevator, lights, sounds, etc.  Definitely going to pick one of these up if I get the chance.

That looks horrible.  Hopefully this is a test shot...?

Jman - did you drop your Star Wars subscriptions too, or just your non SW subs?

I actually dropped SW too.  I bought issue #50 by chance, but I think I stopped right around #35.  Stopped all the secondary titles as well.  I pop into the comic shop every 4-6 weeks to grab Walking Dead and Old Man Hawkeye, but that's just about it now.  I'd probably snag the missing SW comics if I found them on sale somewhere.

Hey guys. I painted these designs for Force Awakens kubricks awhile back. For some reason I never got around to posting them here, so I figured I would now. Hope you enjoy!

These are sweet.  You should send these to Medicom with the subject line: "Hint Hint!"

I cancelled my subscription many months back and really haven't regretted it.  I visit the comic shop every 4-6 weeks to pick up Walking Dead and a few new titles I'm trying like Ant-Man and Deadpool, but that's it.  I've peeked at the Avengers and Iron Man stories while I'm there, but the stories look awful.  How did they ever resolve the Hydra Captain America stuff?

My PC was completely locked up trying to get through an order this morning, but I got through pretty quickly the first time I tried my phone.  If you get stuck tomorrow, might be worth trying.

I've been refreshing the HTS Exclusives page pretty frequently throughout the morning.  It doesn't appear that they've been in stock yet.

Confirmed.  I have been checking in every 5 minutes or so, doesn't look to have been available yet...

Buy in bulk, then share with friends.  I got 3 of them for $48 shipped.

Just out of curiosity, for those of you who actively collect Legends, do you display all (or most) of them? I've always had some packed away but have been considering even more as I redo our office display a bit. It is difficult, because I think most to all of them (especially these days) look great, but it is just so much. I was listening to a podcast this week where they did a bit of a retrospective on the Legends line, and they said that since 2002 we have seen roughly 850 figures. Sheesh! I don't have them all, but definitely well over half.

I've noticed that a lot of the people who used to collect and post here may have dropped out of this line, and maybe this is the reason why. Just so much to manage, as beautiful as they are. What do you do with your Legends, display or no?

I have a big 4' by 2' display for a huge Avengers team, then a few smaller displays:
- Marvel Cinema figures (Avengers, Guardians, etc.)
- Marvel vs. DC (Hero's matched up like Batman vs. Cap, Hawkeye vs. Green Arrow, Flash vs. Quicksilver
- Tony Starks Hall of Armors (Stark with 30ish suits all around him, including a "hidden" Ultron

Its probably 80% of my Legends figures and contains around 30 customs of figures I never thought we'd get like Black Knight, Sersi, Crystal, Moondragon, etc. and improvements over others that I found over the years.  I do have a box of "Extras" that I just don't have room to display or to rotate through if I ever get the chance, but it is hard to fit them all somewhere.  I have a bunch of the smaller 3.75" marvel figs on display as well, so would probably have to bag those to make enough room.  I can post some pictures if you're interested in getting some ideas.

Vintage Kenner / Re: Does anybody buy vintage cardbacks anymore?
« on: August 8, 2018, 09:11 AM »
Holy crap!!!  How does something like that happen unless AFA was in cahoots with someone?  I can see something slipping through every now and then.  I mean, we've also seen some phenomenal fakes, but wow, that's totally unacceptable.

I did stumble across a few things after you posted yesterday, but wasn't inclined enough to read through page after page after page covering some of the mess.

Well, my understanding is that the cardbacks were real and the bubbles were real, so at least most of the components were authentic.  I'm guessing the guy only included fairly mint looking figures - maybe even sealed figures from damaged cards.  Its a forgery, but sounds like a tough one to identify.  It does show how worthless the whole AFA stamp is - I was hoping that story would be the end of them. 

Rob - did you see any info on how to determine if a vintage carded is authentic or a TT imposter?

I didn't have a lot of vehicles when I was a kid either - mostly just the smaller stuff.  But I started picking them up here and there along with the playsets over the last few years and they weren't as hard to track down as I thought they would be.  You have to be a little patient, but you can generally find a good deal here or there on the Bay or at comic shops.  I used some soapy water and a toothbrush to get them cleaned up - you won't regret getting any of them.  I just nabbed another Snowspeeder at Hot Comics last week for $24.  Has most of the stickers, working landing gear, and all the parts except for the harpoon/string piece on the back.

Yeah, those little guys were the best.  No surprises, but appreciate the update.
