Original Trilogy Collection / Re: TRU Endor 4 Pack
« on: April 21, 2004, 09:30 AM »
I'm hoping they go halfway decent with this one as well, especially if it means getting a somewhat decent Endor Han.  I have the POTF2 one, so if that is all this set includes, I doubt I pick it up.  If they try some sort of kitbashing, maybe using that new AT-ST Han head with another body, w/trenchcoat, then I'm probably in.  I missed out on the POTF2 Logray, and I'd always like to add another Ewok to the display.  I have the Wicket, so he could always get repainted...or donated to one of our nephews.  Hopefully it is the POTJ (Clean) Biker Scout, you can always use another one of those.  Overall, I agree, I hope they go back to the earlier quality of these sets.  If they are able to get a little creative with some kitbashing at least, it might turn out ok.

I know what you mean Scott, this is the first time I've actually considered buying figures I already have (and leaving them carded maybe).  Those cards are just too sweet, I hope that Hasbro decides to stick with this design for awhile.

Jocasta's Reading Room / Current Star Wars Comics

For any of you who currently read Star Wars comics, I was looking for opinions on what is out there right now.  I have recently been getting back into comics again (Spider-Man in particular), after 10+ years off, and I was wondering what you might recommend.  I have been looking through DarkHorse's site in their Star Wars section...and from what I am gathering, Republic covers Prequel era stuff, and Empire covers OT-era stuff, is that right?  Also, I see there are Infinities (looks like ROTJ just finished up), and Star Wars Tales (which I think I read here is only a quarterly release?).  I am most interested in OT-era stuff, are there any books in particular that you might recommend?  I have also heard great things about the 80s Marvel re-releases, and I might look into those as well, but I was wondering about current comics too.  Thank you for any advice you might have.

I'm happy to hear that the Endor Wave is starting to show up, I was kind of afraid it might be a tough one to get since it is the last wave before the card change.  Plus, I personally have really been looking forward to this wave...although I'm a few waves behind now :).

Glad to see the Wolves win last night.  Cassell went off, and played a heck of a game.  And KG was, well KG...30 and 20.  I only got to see the second half because we had a hail storm here in town that knocked out half of our cable channels until around 10:30ish.  Glad to see the playoffs started, although most of the Game 1s were blowouts (with the exception of Hou/LA and Mia/New Orleans.  Spurs/Grizz and Lakes/Rockets game 2's tonight :).

That's a good point HMI.  TRU has been getting somewhat regular shipments around here too from what I have seen, although they still have a lot of the Outlander Club wave collecting dust.  They have gotten Ultras of Jabba/Denizens/Wampa/Obi/Jango here and there, and I saw one Rappertunie there two weeks ago so they must have had the Jabba's Palace wave at one point.  Target has been the best place for me personally this year, although they haven't had anything past the Tatooine wave for quite some time now.  Wal-Mart has been a wasteland at every one I have been to.  All I have seen is Dignitaries, Outlander Club, and Ashla/Jempa repacks at three different stores.  That's ok with me, I'm not all that crazy about going to Wal-Mart anyways.

Also, TNI has news of the "tallest" Minimate to date, a Tower Records exclusive Sauron.  You can check that out here:

I just noticed today that has some great pics up of the upcoming DC Minimates line from Art Asylum.  You can check them out here:

I'm just sticking to Marvel for now, since I have enough catching up to do there...but these things do look pretty good too, and will be tempting.

With the problems that so many have had, I don't know if you want to risk it...but just stopped by SWShop and it looks like Adventure Kermit is back in stock for those who are interested...shipping April 19th it says.  Just thought I would post in case anyone missed out with all the craziness before.

Thought maybe this thread could be used to discuss anything else comic-related as well....for those of you that read comics, the comic-related movies, figures and toys, etc.  Anything you want to discuss.

As far as comics, after the advice of Mikey here, I have started to read Ultimate Spider-Man.  This is the first time I've read comics since the very early 90s, and I have not been disappointed.  Spidey has always been my favorite (past and present), and I think this is an excellent take on him.  Plus, I missed out on so much of the other Spidey books, so I'd be so out of it story-wise, its kind of nice to start fresh.  For now its just Ultimate Spider-Man, but I've been thinking about picking up another Spidey title, or perhaps an X-Men one as well in the future (I think there is a re-launch coming up soon).  Anyone else want to chime in on what they read, or what they used to read, or anything else?

I read over at the other day that there are already talks of a Punisher 2.  There was an interview with Punisher star Thomas Jane, and he mentions that if this film is a hit, he is already signed on for two more...and the villain in the second one will be Jigsaw.  I'm really not familiar with the Punisher character, except for when he guest-starred in Spidey or Wolverine comics when I was younger, but I assume this is one of his major baddies?  I don't know if I'll see any of these movies, because I'm just not big on the Punisher myself, although I do like comic movies.  I'm waiting for Spidey 2 :P.  Good news though for fans of Punisher, if this one does well, sounds like there could be more at least.

Imagine what will happen when they get an Exclusive figure or two from Hasbro and 10000 people are trying to order them at the same time

Excellent point Scott.....yikes.

I didn't get a chance to order anything the previous time, but did sign up for an account shortly before it shut down.  It didn't accept that account when I first tried to log in, so I signed up for a new one.  They didn't have a t-shirt in stock that I wanted to order (that I saw last time), so I ordered one Indy Kermit.  Everything seemed to go through just fine, $15 for the Kermit, $4.95 shipping, free patches and promo card.  I got a confirmation e-mail too.  Hopefully I did everything alright, and it stinks that so many others are having problems.  You'd think they would have had it all figured out after all this time working on it.

Does anyone know a place where there is a listing of the figures released in the Spider-Man classics line so far?  I went to Toy Biz's site, and the list they had there seemed a little out of date, as well as possibly missing a few figures.  Also, I thought I remembered this line going through a minor "change" at one point?  I wasn't sure, because I wasn't paying as close of attention to it at that point in time.  I guess I was just wondering what had been released in the past, particularly among villains.  I thought that there was a Rhino at one point, but I didn't see it on Toy Biz's site.  If anyone knows where I can find a listing of everything (since OffTheCard is now longer up and running), or maybe just list a summary here, I'd really appreciate it.  Thanks!

Sorry if this has been asked before, but are Marvel Minimates going to be (or continue to be) offered at retail places?  I know the TRU nearest us has the four packs, but I was wondering if they were going to be carry future waves...or if other stores might be as well?  I was just curious if they would be able to be found at least somewhat (I understand exclusives and chase figures might be an online-only type of thing).  If I have to collect the majority of the line from internet stores, I might have to stay away from it.  Just curious if anyone knew the retail situation...thanks :).

By the way, they are great little figs though.  I only have the Spidey four pack and I already want more :).
