If they would have drafted him to play WR or weren't going to throw him into starting, I would have mentioned it, he is Vince Young (part II or III if you will).

I watched both of those guys on the field last night, and one looked a whole lot better than the other. (Hint: the one with the 145+ QB rating)  ;)

All kidding aside though, I can understand skepticism of any highly touted rookie, but all of the early indicators seem to be that Robert is every bit as advertised. (Talking about the whole draft process through OTA's, rookie camp, training camp, etc, not just the 14 preseason plays from last night) Everyone from the writers, coaches, veterans, etc have been pretty impressed from what I gather.

We'll see how things play out when it really counts, but this doesn't feel like a bust pick to me somehow.

Ed Norton seriously ****** the pony on this.

Somehow, I doubt he cares...dude dumped Salma Hayek. He clearly does not think like the rest of us. LOL.

I was at a Disney outlet store over the weekend while on vacation and was surprised to see a healthy offering of Marvel Selects figures...mostly Black Widow or Hawkeye. These looked different the the similarly scaled versions I have seen at Walmart.

The cool thing was, they each came with a base that included parts of a burnt out Ultron. Have not seen these before but seemed kinda neat.

So...about two hours left to sign up, I got my order in just under the wire. I figure this is the way to go, I'm definitely going to want all of these figures and they're not going to be cheaper anywhere else.

Suck we have to wait 5 more months before the first figure ships though. The previews at SDCC for Rorschach and Dr Manhattan looked pretty sweet.

As long as Galactus isn't a %^&* cloud again, it has to be a step up.

Oh snap, and with the original gun too!!

I'd love to hear more details about how you came by this...certainly the Grail of any collection.

I hope to be like you too one day.  ;D

Congrats, bro...that's terrific. I did not think these were still shipping, so hope remains, I guess.

Were they located on the regular action figure aisle or on a dedicated endcap? Was this a Target that had completed their reset?

And what state exactly?

There are no Targets around here where I am on vacation sadly, but maybe I will get lucky on the way home.

Two of the local Targets just completed resets and designated space for the 3-packs. The first one only had the Gonk Droid set, no Snags, but the second one had pegs filled 6-8 packs deep....with last years's editions. Yep, loads of Dengar sets and a couple Bossk/IG-88 sprinkled in. Yecchhh.

Arrived in DE for vacation this evening and happened to see all the light-up MH figures at the Giant grocery store of all places, even Vader. Weird.

Why aren't the new SW individual figure listings under "New to Hasbro Toy Shop"? I mean, it's not surprising or anything, just seems like it would have been helpful to give them a little profile.

I was able to get an order in for the listed-as-"in-stock" Imperial Navy Commander I needed, as well as a second Luke Hoth, early this morning (around 7:45 AM), so hopefully it will actually be shipped to me.

I am returning those same two figures to my local Target today, I decided I didn't want them and their secondary market value isn't good enough to justify selling them or trying to trade for something I actually want.

Hmmm, did not realize this was the wave with the two realistic styled Clone Wars figures. Guess I am SOL now. Not gonna buy a case for 2 figures anyway, really.

If anyone has any extras of Obi or Ahsoka they'd be willing to part with, I'll gladly take them off your hands.  ;D


So, at the Targets that have completed their resets, did they put out new figures too? Or are the pegs still half-empty?

Is anyone still finding the 3-packs at the old DPCI clearance prices?

Surprised to read on the front page that these are suddenly now ubiquitous around the country.

Not if you live around here!

None of our Targets have even started to THINK about doing a reset yet. Still showing zero counts for these sets at ALL local stores.

No worries, Cousins is Plan B. Shanny has 'em covered from all angles.  ;D
