  1. I don't need CNN to tell me they're not selling. Any store, EVERY store has them clogging the pegs. I think it has less to do with the quality of the figures or the characters, it's the scale. Collectors have "bought into" the 6 inch scale of Legends, the 5 inchers don't go with them. They underestimated the pushback from collectors/completists and assumed that kids buying them would make up the difference. They assumed wrong.
  2. By Kal-El, if you're talking about the one in the blue duds with the headwrap, he's warming pegs ALL OVER northern Illinois. If you're talking the black costume, I've seen him on the pegs exactly once, then I bought him.
  3. I took my 6 year old to see it (had too because it's the first Superhero movie in recent memory that wasn't PG-13), and because I saw it with him, I really enjoyed it. I loved Batman and the Spidey's (the first two anyway) as well as the Hulk (it was ok), but with a little bit of effort and proper editing those could have (should have) ALSO been PG, for the kids. Are the studios missing out by making everything PG-13?
  4. Marvel is blowing it. Took my boy to see the new movie today and he was REALLY WANTING a SS figure, trucked to two Wal-marts and a Target and found nothing! Target had some of the 5" figures (no SS), but I haven't seen ANY of the Legends SS anywhere? What the hell?
  5. I'm in! Hopefully they're easier to find then the blasted Thor from series 2.
  6. I called Hasbro Toyshop, it took about a minute, spoke to a very nice woman, she apologized for the e-mail (said it went out in error), assured me they still had my order, and they were being shipped TODAY. Other than the e-mail going out in error, Hasbrotoyshop.com seems to be on the ball (or at least telling me what I want to hear).
  7. Ok, I just got an e-mail from Hasbrotoyshop that says my order is cancelled. I called their "customer service" line and everything, now they're claiming I asked them to cancel. Has anyone else gotten this note from these jokers?
  8. I saw the Batman ones at a TRU in Northern Chicago suburbs about two weeks ago and passed. It looked nice, but the price wasn't on it, so I figured it was expensive. Didn't have too many points of articulation either. I'm sticking with Icons for now, the Marvel brand (yeah, I know Batman is Iconic, but you know what I mean).
  9. I'm in. I dig the Legends but don't know anything about this BAF Holocaust.
  10. I dig 'em. Happy I started picking up Icons when the series first started. Is this wave the next one, or is the one with Johnny Storm next?
  11. Yup we had them hit here, now they're gone. Sorry bud.
  12. I've been extremely disappointed by DCD, I got a Flash figure for my boy and his arm fell off (Flash's, not my boy) about five minutes after I took him out of the package. Give Mattel the core JL rights for a year and see what they do with it.
  13. Found a couple sets of all of these (except McQuarrie Chewie was absent), and bought one set, left behind the others, at Wally-Mart in Round Lake Beach, IL (FAR north suburb of Chicago). Haven't seen diddly at any Target's or TRU.
  14. That site's got some sweet stuff on it.
  15. Thanks fellas. Between this and the Hasbrotoyshop tip with McQuarrie Luke, I'm totally set. I wasn't a pig in either case, just one of each. I don't see anyone buying 110 of the droids only to scalp on E-Bay, that's almost $2500 out of pocket (with shipping). This is how the convention exclusives should be done for those of us unable to attend.

    We lost my Mother in Law to Cancer last year, and My dad was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer earlier this year (fortunately, he should survive). I'd like to get one for my wife (because of her mother) and one for my boys. This is beyond cool and I'll keep my eyes peeled on hasbrotoyshop.com. Cheers!
  17. Thanks for the tip. I ordered one.
  18. Saw this at Target in Libertyville, IL (FAR north suburb of Chicago) this afternoon and passed. It looked sweet, but I couldn't pull the trigger. No Sith Infiltrator, THAT I would have snarfed.
  19. I snarfed Mongul, chrome Steel, and black suited Superman at the TRU in Libertyville, IL (FAR North suburb of Chicago). I left behind the Kal-El (which are ALL over Walmart's around here) as well as Darkseid, and Bizarro, and may have been a Super-girl as well. The guy at the register commented that he didn't even get to "check them out" today as they were just put out this morning. No cyborg Supes.
  20. Saw Spidey 3 in Round Lake Beach, IL (FAR north suburb of Chicago), and they had both the life size Surfer and the Simpson couch (it was a Regal Cinema Theatre). TOO DAMN COOOOOOLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  21. Pioneer. Only a few variants missing, otherwise I've got them all.
  22. Snarfed the exclusive Venom this afternoon in Gurnee, IL (FAR north suburb of Chicago).
  23. I snarfed all 6 of the 2nd wave of the 30th Anniversary Figures at the Round Lake Beach, IL Wal-mart, including Boba Fett Concept. I didn't buy any dups, and left behind at least two or three other complete sets (yes with Boba Concept).
