I really like this bust, but I can't justify dropping that much money on it.

It will be interesting to see how small the edition size will be.

If I can talk the wife into it, I'm going to bow out of watching this and just follow along here. I have too many other good things on the ol' DVR that have to be better than this.

I was hoping for some sort of payout with the big finale, but I'm not surprised they ended it in a cliffhanger. I really wish they had kept the episode to 60 minutes, since the driving and soliloquy seemed to be just fluff to me.

I hope Abraham was spared the bat.

Supposedly they are supposed to be hitting again in February, according to a tweet I read recently. I haven't seen them either.

Now that is too cool!

I guess I technically still collect these mini-busts, but given the price increases, I am much more selective than I used to be.

I love this one, but not nearly enough to drop $120 for it.

I think GG is going to price themselves right out of the market if they keep this up.

Yeah, that episode was pure foreplay. They didn't necessarily wrap up every single plot point, but I would have liked some sort of closure on at least one item.

I recorded the Talking Dead, but I don't think I'll bother watching that now.

I'm a Notre Dame fan, and a fan of the Cubs and the Sox (due to my dad), and I'd love to see Samardzija succeed, but he really needs to be more consistent. I was hoping he'd stay with the Cubs, but I'm glad we didn't drop a ton of cash on him.

I'm hoping the Cubs will be improved this year, and at least be fun/interesting to watch. At this point I think playing .500 ball would be considered a success, despite what the talking heads say.

That is indeed sick. Any idea how much this will potentially cost in USD?

Hey all,

I finally made my first Star Wars purchases in what seems like forever. Last night I grabbed the Prototype Boba Fett from Walgreens, and I have Jabba and a Speeder Bike on the way from Amazon. Can't wait to see those in person.

Happy hunting all!

Hello all,

I hope this isn't a threadjack, but if it is, please feel free to move or delete this post.

Anywho, is there a sister-site (or somewhere here), for buying Transformers from other members? I am looking for Generations Thundercracker, Dirge, and the slightly older Acid Storm.

I am watching a few items on eBay, but I'd rather deal with a more-known commodity, if you know what I mean. Thanks in advance for any enlightenment!


At this point, I kind of want to see how jacked-up of a cast they can come up with.

I had to jump on this at $25. It may go lower, but I can't risk it!

This set didn't do much for me at $40, but at $15 this is too good a deal to pass up. If nothing else, I need a good TIE Fighter Pilot for my currently pilot-less TIE. Adding the troopers into the mix sold me.

Now I just need a crazy sale on the TIE Interceptor and I'll be all set.

this will be on a lightning sale at amazon at 4:00 pm eastern

Do you have a link or anything? The only toy-related lightning link that is showing up on my phone is some lame activity book. Thanks in advance!

Scratch my request. :) I just saw the TI shown on Amazon. Come on, 4:00!
