Mattel seems to think kids want a lot of He-Men. I can understand having He-Man and Skeletor around at all times, but this line isn't huge enough yet to warrant packing He-Man and Skeletor so heavily in each case.

Add to it collectors like me only wanting the 'secondary' characters, and you've got trouble. But judging by what I sawa t Target today, the line should be alright for a few years provided Mattel doesn't blow it with the Snake Men.

What pisses me off is that I've found these at three different stores, and have yet to find a Zipline Batman. I don't hold much hope of finding a Joker (or any villain for that matter) so I'm not to worried about this line. I just wish they could pull their heads out of their collective a$$es there at Mattel and just distribute the products evenly. But, if they did that, places like would actually be a pleasure to visit.

OK, that was my rant for the day.

Uh, can I have pics of said stripper? Or at least the link? It's for educational purposes, of course. ::)

I finally read this thread, and must say a lot of people look like red X's. Of course, I have little to offer picwise. Sorry.

Those overpriced TRU exclusive...things that a company Stan Winston started put out. They're all really cool monsters, but when they're priced at $15 a crack, sheesh. They sit next to the Transformers at my local TRU, and I just wish Star Wars or MOTU had the pegs those forsaken things are sitting on.

Another line that shouldn't have been was Art Asylum's line of Star Trek:Nemesis figures. If you're not going to do the whole crew, don't bother starting, IMO.

This is off the topic of Buffy figures, but it's still Buffy-related.

Thanks for adding the alert to the title. That was my next step after the pics. :)

This pic is probably a spoiler, but if you clicked on a thread with the letters 'ROTK' in its title than you're probably asking for it.

Right now it's Pearl Jam's Given To Fly.  The first time I heard this, I was as low as you can get emotionally. It really picked me up, and I still get a feeling every time I hear it.

There are a few songs I like that are listed here that I'd probably never admit to liking. But, they're good tunes.

Cold beer. Or Dr. Pepper.
A stack of new comics.
Finding new swag for my collection.
Riding my newly fixed Sea-Doo at idiotic speeds and loving every minute of it.
Spending time outside reading or playing with my dog.
Grilling a fat steak. Yeah.

Other Toy Lines / Re: Which is Your Favorite "Other Toy Line"?
« on: August 1, 2003, 09:07 AM »
Besides Star Wars and LOTR, I collect Hasbro's Transformers G1 Commerative Series. People blather on and on about Takara's stuff being better, but missiles don't really matter that much to me. Besides, that chrome wears off eventually.

I'm really hot and cold on MOTU. Probably due to the length of time that passes between actually finding the figures.

I tried to start on the Buffy line, but after receiving a couple of figures and MAC canceling the line and then putting out exclusives, who knows where that's going. ::)

Man, Clayburn Moore IS a tool. He should just keep sculpting female's asses and leave business decisions to anyone else.

If you're looking for older stuff (funny term, the line's barely a year old) try KB. A local one here still has Jungle Attack He-Man and other pegwarmers. Also try out-of-the-way Wal-Marts, like those found in smaller towns. I've had insane luck there, and they often have figures like Beast Man, Stratos, and Man-At-Arms.

Also, keep checking every other Wal-Mart you can find, because I found MEF and Buzz-Off with Free Video #3 attached to them today, along with rage-inducing He-Man variants. ::)

Stole it from a link at RS. I had a hard time keeping my jaw from hitting the floor after I put it in place. It's quite sad and hopeless in its tone, especially the conversation between Gandalf and Pippin. :(
