I forgot to mention:

Kill Bill figures and Hellboy figures!

Found the Armored WK wave yesterday at my local TRU (Iowa) to my surprise.  The WK rang up 8.99 as opposed to the others, but I think this is because he's still in the computer from being part of the original first ROTK assortment last year.  Just be sure to double check when purchasing.

On to my thoughts:

Merry in Armor: One of the best figs of the wave.  Great likeness, great sculpt, great articulation, great everything.  Probably my favorite of the group, really.

KOTD: Lots of fun, actually.  Pics do not do him justice.  Lots of articulation, a great sculpt all around, and the GITD thing works gangbusters.

Faramir in Armor: Fantastic likeness, great sculpt and articulation.  Two problems: he has a huge button on his back for an action feature that does not exist, and his arms are oversized.  The arms I can get over, and you can hang his silly helmet on the button.

Armored WK: So big he barely fits on the card.  Great sculpt, one of the best.  His robes restrict a lot of movement offered by his articulation, but all he has to do is stand there and look bad ass, which he does.  He holds the sword and giant mace well and towers over Eowyn.

All in all, probably the best wave of figs in a long time, maybe ever.  Can't wait for more!

Out of this second batch, the only one I see happening is the black leather one.  The others are too obscure/boring.

Yeah, the Red Skull chase was a huge mistake.  There's just no sense in limiting core characters.  At all.  Even the paint variants suck, since Dark Phoenix is the one I want most.

Pushing back Series 8 is ok with me, so long as it arrives first thing next year.  Really want Storm.

Same here.

For folks like yourself blessed with CT Stormie armies, I can see how it's a mixed blessing.  Do you need another 100?  Will just one do?  Ten?  Is it even that much better?

I personally will wait for it to be repacked at a lower price point, and since I don't army build, one or two will do.

I liked #20 a lot, and I think the General is interesting (still looks boring, uninspired), but I still don't see his purpose.  What is the purpose of introducing yet another villian into the mix with only two hours of SW left?  Don't we have enough to cover already?

I pass on a lot of figures nowadays.  I also used to be a one of everyone kind of guy, but the number of figs I don't buy has been growing ever since EP1.  I've left about half of this year's offerings on the pegs.

I like the idea of Halle Berry as Catwoman.  A lot.  That costume is near box office poison, though.  I haven't seen the clip.  Is it really that bad?

I know this will eventually be repacked, but this may be one I buy.  If I ever find it.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Is the TRU Red Leader X-Wing out yet?

It showed up here in IA today.  The cardboard inserts are crazy.  I might break down eventually and buy one for Wedge, but I have a sneaking suspicion will get one from Hasbro anyway.

I loved it.  Lots and lots of fun.  Movies aren't fun, anymore, you know?  I'll actually probably see it again, since our theater here is too good for Eternal Sunshine and Kill Bill is a week away yet.

Yeah, the local TRU here has long been notorious for cherry-picking.  The only way you ever see anything 'rare' there is if there is sustained shipments.  Like months.

When I went to see Kill Bill the second time, I was the only one in the theater until the last minute, when a young gal walked in and decided to sit RIGHT NEXT TO ME (another pet peeve) and then proceeded to talk to the movie.  When Bill asks the Bride "Do you find me sadistic?" she answered loud and proud, "Yes I do!"

It was kind of funny after a while.

It's bad enough they're charging ten bucks and making these somewhat limited, they have to screw with the assortments too?  What point is there in making Leia even harder to find?  

So glad I'm not collecting these.
