30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 2007 Star Wars Comic Packs
« on: January 21, 2007, 09:50 PM »
I've seen the following pricing on the comic 2-packs:

$9.96 - WalMart
$9.99 - Target
$10.99 - Toys R Us

All of those prices were at stores in your area, notably NY/NJ.

Still not a bad value when 2 basic figures are going to cost at minimum $13.

Who would've thought that the Bears would wind up turning this into a blowout?  Could this be a rematch of Bears-Pats at long last?  If it is, I think things might wind up a little more interesting this time around.

But I still wouldn't count the Colts out just yet.  They were able to beat a great defensive team in Baltimore last week.  And now they're playing at home.  But as always, they have to play the game and then we'll see what happens.

Agreed.  At this price point (about $9.99 per set), the Comic 2-packs are a much better value than the basic figures, especially with those reportedly creeping up in price to well over $7 each.

I've been pleasantly surprised by the offerings Sideshow has come up with.  Here are some I'd like to see:

Order Of The Jedi
Yoda - How could they not do Yoda?
Saesee Tiin
Eeth Koth

Lords Of The Sith
Darth Sidious - Senate Duel
Count Dooku
Darth Vader

I saw quite a few of these back before Christmas.  I can't recall it being in 30AC packaging, but I did see these out there.

I saw an Utapau Trooper/Death Star Gunner 2-pack, but I passed.  I guess the price just isn't enough of a draw to get me to buy some of these figures again.

I would've liked to have seen maybe ONE Giants player in this year's lineup.  Maybe an individually packaged Burress in the white uni, and perhaps with a Steelers chase. 

With regards to hockey, I'm talking about the Devils.  Sports Picks has been a major hit with hockey fans, but there's been so much of a focus on teams like the Maple Leafs, Avalance, Red Wings and Rangers to a lesser extent that a lot of other teams have been left by the wayside.  Mind you, a lot of WINNING teams.  In the history of Sports Picks, McFarlane has only produced TWO Devils players, Scott Stevens and Martin Brodeur.  Okay, there have been a couple of versions of Marty and a team Canada version.  But what about everyone else on that team, like Elias, Gionta or Rafalski?

Looks like I get to save some money on Sports Picks this year.  I'll probably only be buying the Yankees that are offered in the MLB 6" figure line, and maybe the NHL Jagr.  But let me say:  SCREW TODD MCFARLANE.  Not a single NY Giants player in the NFL line (okay, we got some this year), and not a single NJ Devils player in the NHL 6" figure line....AGAIN.  The Devils have only been one of the most dominant teams in the Atlantic division, and yet McFarlane snubs them again.  D!CK!!!

Looking forward to ROBOTECH:  The Shadow Chronicles which is due out next month.  I can't believe it's been 20 years since there was a new chapter in that particular saga.

Interesting.  And Father's Day is somewhat near the actual 30th anniversary, isn't it?

They definitely look good.  But the prices are getting a little too steep, and it seems like idea-wise Gentle Giant is behind the curve between Sideshow and Attakus.

I ran the DCPI for this battle packl that I posted in the DCPI thread.  The number's valid even though the store I went to didn't have any in stock.

I'd definitely like to see some loose pics of this set, considering the confusion about the troopers.  It's definitely odd that they would retool the Clone Commander for the generic Clones, but then I guess the Evolutions Clone is expensive to manufacture.

I picked up this set today.  Very cool.  I haven't opened it yet, but I'm looking forward to it.  I know that I definitely want to try preserving the packaging insert, as it depicts the conference table reasonably well for a piece of cardboard.

Picked up a Death Star Briefing 7-pack at a local comic shop today.  Very cool!  At last, I've got a General Tagge figure!!!
