  1. I feel odd going into a K-Mart... like I'm the only customer in the place because people abandoned them long ago. The interior of the store is showing age, the carts are old and the stock is often old. Stuff is more or less laying around. And the employees aren't even watching me, because if I need help, it means they have to do something and if I steal somehing it's just less crap for them to have to rearrange on shelves. It's a sense of boredom, lost hope and stagnation going into that store.
  2. I saw it once on opening day, I don't feel a need to watch it again.
  3. The tapes I own have sharper sculped detail than any of the legit versions, but the cheap paper stickers are disintegrating and the plastic stickers weren't cut right. All the metal is replaced with plastic on my set. And the toys feel really light, a combo of gutting the metal and using lighter plastic. Prime sits in truck mode as he's too floppy to do anything with.
  4. I think the fragility problems on that toy were reported heavily enough not to be counted as rumor anymore. And in my experience with these, while they look nice, they're still bootlegs with problems and not worth current values.
  5. A toy worker I talked to a couple months ago indicated that K-Mart stores received pallets full of toys, but were under orders not to put them out until Christmas shopping season.
  6. I wonder if you can still get those Chinese boxsets off eBay which just pirate the Rhino discs?
  7. Ever had to do even basic grocery shopping on black friday? WM is flooded with deal-seeling yokels. I had to make my shopping in 3 trips in and out. Get the fridge/freezer stuff last. Otherwise I wait in the big lines forever while the milk spoils.
  8. Pity I can't afford this. $580 I have to spend on 200 gallons of propane fuel for the winter(a disadvantage of rural area living is no gas main to leech from). But if I don't, and winter this year is as bad as last year, it could be a bad thing. So no toys for me for a good while unless I can trade for one somehow.
  9. Whoever's making these is price fixing them. Selling to stores for way above production cost for a massive profit because they now know there's a strong market. And in my experience these aren't 100% perfect anyway. Prime is a floppy mess, there are a lot of fragility reports, chroming issues, and the 2 tapes I got were solid plastic(of which was a step above a saltine cracker in terms of how easy they are to break). I wouldn't buy anymore of these unless the price dropped to 1/3 what they are now.
  10. It's a line I would invest in over DCSH if I had a hefty fortune to spend. $60 apiece kills their completibility. I might get Power Girl though.
  11. The first Two-Face I bought was missing one of the spare hands. Thankfully I checked this when I got to the car so I was able to walk in and exchange it.
  12. The conditions I've seen K-Mart toy sections in... this oddly does not surprise me.
  13. Bad news on my end. Talked to a good number of stores(3 Wal-Marts, 2 Targets, 2 TRU), seems the line is being universally dropped in this area. They don't sell well enough. The short packed toys sell fast, but 2 or 3 of them per case that sell against 6 or 7 that don't isn't cutting it. One TRU sttill has 7 Scarecrows! In short, if I want Clayface, Batgirl, gray Batman or Bruce Wayne, I'll have to have someone grab them for me.
  14. I don't see DC going through with this. They're not run by an idiot like Marvel is. At worst, Joker or someone "kills" him, a Robin takes over for a bit, until Bruce gets hauled to a Lazarus pit or something.
  15. They need to release weapon packs. I liked his accessories but not enough to spend $10 on the toy just for them.
