It took me a long time to get through Truce at Bakura. Painfully long.

Based on the initial 20-30 pages, I'm definitely feeling that.   :P

I remember that book. That's the one with the Star Wars version of the Borg.

Correctemundo.  I just started it this week though, so don't tell me what happens.  ;)

Well, those are all actually in context, but funny all the same.

Without the picture there is NO context as to what you are talking about.

I think you are confusing the word "context" with "caption."  You don't need to have a picture to have context.

"Context: n. the parts of a written or spoken statement that precede or follow a specific word or passage, usually influencing its meaning or effect: You have misinterpreted my remark because you took it out of context. "

Seriously.  I could see paying that for Desmond, but not Ben!

Catching up on some of the older SW books I missed over the years...

And it's advertised now...  That means, Pricematchin' time!  And if you're lucky, as I am, you can land some Wave 5 figures with it.  :)

For anyone thinking about trying this - I had no luck getting TRU or Target to price match K-Mart's ad. I think Walmart still price matches for anyone that has easy access to one.   :P

Not the live action movie, but a trailer is up for WB/DC's next animated movie - Green Lantern: First Flight.  It looks pretty good so far.

Animated?!  I thought they were working on a live version of the jolly green ring-boy?   :(

Well, those are all actually in context, but funny all the same.

I am going to hold off till I get back from my trip later this month.

Hrm...not bad Steve.   ;)

Would love to take a closer look at this, but Hiss wants me to sign up. 

Oh well. I wasn't meant to get one I guess.

Hope you got your money's worth.

Another FYI that the $5 Big K sale on all action figures is holding on for another week!

Does anyone in the know have any idea when these will be released in Paperback?

Don't remember his exact words...I was driving at the time, but it did have me exclaim "WHAT?!" when I heard it.  I'm not even the big Bronco fan in the house....that honor goes to the Mrs.   ;)

She's pretty pissed.

I'd be pretty curious to know what he said in that press conference.  I looked around online and pretty much all of his comments are just about how playing for the Bears is a dream come true since he grew up as a Bears fan.  Here's his comment on what went down in Denver - sounds like a pretty humble and decent guy to me.

''Obviously, there's been a lot said on my part and the Broncos' part over the last couple of months,'' he said. ''I think both sides would possibly do a few things different, but everything happens for a reason, and that's behind me. This is a dream come true for me. I'm looking forward to the future.''

One thing I thought would be perfect is a Raven/Beast Boy set to help round out the Titans.  Both characters that would be a tough sell at retail, but I think collectors would happily pick that up.

Raven and Beast Boy are what I'd call a C character, maybe even a low B.  If goofy ass characters like Killer Moth and D characters like Etrigan the Demon sell well at retail, then I see no reason why Raven and Beast Boy couldn't either.  When they're released, I'd expect them to be single carded (although I could see a special Beast Boy set with multiple green animals as a Matty exclusive).

I was thinking the same thing.  I think Beast Boy and Raven are more popular characters than a lot of what's been released so far.  Killer Moth!?  Seriously.  I was actually really dissapointed to see the Starfire pack as an exclusive as well - she cost an arm and a leg to get loose on Ebay.  I'd much rather see exclusives with extra accessories or things like the WT Monkey, so the average Joe can still get the characters they want and the collecotrs can pay bigger bucks for something that's not available anywhere else.

Pretty sure I'll be resorting to ebay for the Wave 4 stuff I want (Wonder Woman and her variant) and the wave 7 stuff (Flash, Kid Flash, Captain Cold).  I think the only figure I really wanted from wave 6 was Shazam, but I already have the Alex Ross, so I might just pass on it. 

Are you talking about Wonder Woman and Artemis?  I swear I've seen both at Target in the last week, and am working on a trade with a guy on Fwoosh that for sure has Artemis.  Let me know if you want me to pick these up for ya.
