Well, this morning I'll be picking up almost the entire Giant man wave as the result of a trade.  I'm curious to see which Giant Man parts each figure has.  I already got Sabretooth which comes with Giant Man's left foot.  I'm getting the entirety of the rest of the wave except for Thor.  Now from what I understand one of the variants has an essential piece of Giant Man.  Not sure if it's Sentry or Wolverine.  Guess I'll find that out later, and find out which piece has the duplicate Giant Man part.

Has anyone verified which figure comes with which BAF part?

Collecting karma pays off!  A buddy of mine scored me the entire Giant Man wave minus Sabretooth (which I already have) and Thor,  and even got the Sentry variant.  Trading pays off!

Maybe, maybe not.  Depends where it goes, what your connection speed is and maybe whether you're a hyperwaste member or not.   ;)

Considering how much a Hyperspace membership costs, and that cost relative to what this piece is fetching on ePay, it would be an absolute BARGAIN to get the Hyperspace membership and pay $50 or whatever for the bust.

Patience is a virtue.  Just wait.

Yeah, it should settle out to around $400 or so on ebay given time :P

eBay?  We don't need no estinkin' eBay!

Managed to get the Giant Man series Sabretooth as well as the Hulk/Leader 2-pack.  This new WalMart assortment is like a scalper magnet.  The place where I got my stuff was decimated!

What do I think, or what would I like?  How about our first ever look at Darth Vader, complete with the blasted open hatch of the Tantive IV as a base/background?

Don't say that!  Even the thought of it makes my feet hurt!

I don't like the fact that Dustin is using the front page of RS to ask for his personal needs:

I'm looking to obtain a full set. If you can help, please email me here - dustin@rebelscum.com. So far I've got #112, Jeff Ignatowski.

Come on, that's what the forums are for.  :(

Some of the staff at Yakface has been doing the same thing.  It certainly does have the effect of sullying their main page.

Did anyone pick up Tool's new one?

Bought it but have yet to listen to it.  Hopes are high.

Saw the reset.  They scooted the SW section down 4 or 6 feet and put in a Superman section.  Big whoop.

Wow, that's a steal for NJ - we're at $2.79 in Iowa.




Not really.  NJ doesn't have the taxes on gas that NY does, if you subtract the taxes from the NY price, the NJ price is actually a little higher than the $3.01/gallon it is here in my hood in NY.

Yeah, keep telling yourself that when you pay for gas.  NY is never going to get rid of that gas tax.

Question, kind of related. Are the problems the gas companies crying about any different than the problems that the steel companies were crying about back in the early 60's? Anyone remember? The steel companies were banding together and getting ready to raise rates due to supply issues until Kennedy stepped in and forced them to hold steady. Kennedy knew raising rates would kill the economy while the steel industry claimed they would go out of business. Well, the steel industry just had to take a profit hit, but they're still around.

Actually, the US steel industry isn't what it was.  It took a major hit in the 70's, especially in western PA and the midwest.  Now the US is having to compete mightily with Japanese steel.  There was actually quite the trade dispute about it for a while, with the US claiming that the Japanese were trying to flood the US market with Japanese steel.

Marvel does seem to be running low on characters for the Marvel Legends line.  These might be some good choices:

AVENGERS
Hercules
Starfox
Yellowjacket
old school gold Iron Man
Scarlet Witch
She Hulk (w/ FF variant)

X-MEN/X-Factor
Thunderbird
Sunfire
Banshee
Storm - original costume
Beast - X-Factor minus blue fur
Cyclops - X-Factor
Jean Grey - X-Factor
Havok
"Days Of Future Past" gift pack

OTHERS
Quicksilver


VILLAINS
Thanos
Modok
Crimson Dynamo
Brood
Sebastion Shaw
Nimrod
White Queen


Dug up the most recent wishlist I had.  I'm surprised to see so many of my choices have been given consideration in one way or another...

AVENGERS
Hercules
Starfox
Yellowjacket
old school gold Iron Man - think this might be a variant in a future wave
Scarlet Witch
She Hulk (w/ FF variant)

X-MEN/X-Factor
Thunderbird
Sunfire
Banshee
Storm - original costume
Beast - X-Factor minus blue fur
Cyclops - X-Factor
Jean Grey - X-Factor
Havok
"Days Of Future Past" gift pack

OTHERS
Quicksilver


VILLAINS
Thanos - Marvel Select
Modok
Crimson Dynamo
Brood
Sebastion Shaw
Nimrod
White Queen - Kinda sorta done by Marvel Select


It's still kind of puzzling as to what Hasbro is going to tackle when they take over the license.

Prices in NJ seem to have peaked and gone down slightly.  The lowest price I could find for regular unleaded last week was $2.79 a gallon.  Tonight I saw $2.77.
