  1. i'm not too attached to stratos either but i'll be getting him anyway to complete the series. i picked up 2 fakers from NYCC and he isn't just a simply he-man repaint. the details with the airbrushing and musculature are amazing! i couldn't expect any less from MOTUC. his face details alone made him worth the effort of getting this guy early. he's got darker blue airbrushing around his eyes and red pupils which makes him look really menacing! the dry-brushing on the orange skeletor armor is a neat touch, as well as the pearlescent paint they used for the crossbones on the chest emblem. he just looks all kinds of bad-ass and i'm so glad i got him. he also comes with an orange half-sword which i thought was kinda strange. it would've made sense if they made the orange half-sword fit with skeletor's but it has the peg-holes that would only allow it to fit with he-man's half-sword. orange and grey are a gross combination! i'm ordering stratos in less than an hour, then its off to hunt for some more goodies!
  2. the other day i found all of the figures except gambit, brown costume wolverine, and maverick. i was surprised to see that whoever got there first left me a deadpool, but after reading clam34's post about the case packout, i'm not that surprised anymore. the deadpool i got looks fine and dandy and all, but upon further inspection (i haven't opened these yet) he's missing his sword sheaths! this little detail would be tough to spot since i didn't have another deadpool on the shelf to compare it to, but i actually noticed this before i brought it to the cash register. the reason i picked it up was because i wasn't sure how easy it would've been to find another one. i haven't seen these at any other store and haven't been back yet to the one TRU that i picked these up from, so i guess i have to wait for that march 1st street date.
  3. its been a while since i've posted, so how's it hangin everybody? i got to that walmart that ares posted about a little while after he did. all that was left were some of wave 5 and very few of wave 6. and this was a few days ago. i didn't think they had any wave 7 because the rereleased figures weren't even on the pegs anymore. anyway, i managed to find barda, kid flash, and captain cold at another walmart but i'm still missing the variant barda and flash. i'm in the process of moving in the next two weeks so everything i purchase from here on out is going to be boxed up. i need A LOT OF BOXES.
  4. saying that they're not going to succeed is unneccessarily negative. i have a feeling MOTUC will have more longevity than the 2003 line. obviously, the line isn't going to last until the end of time, but i'm sure there will be plenty of die-hard motu fans that will keep this line going. its COLLECTOR-driven and its up to us to decide this line's fate. i say keep em coming mattel.
  5. the grodd wave is supposedly going to show up after the grundy wave hits with jason firestorm. the reason for the delay was because mattel switched vendors in china.
  6. totally get them all. i'm currently waiting for my SDCC king grayskulls in the mail.
  7. i totally want one of these!
  8. i'm only missing two of the joker thugs. to be honest, i haven't been looking around for them much lately. after spending all this cash on the hulk legends, ML two-packs, and SDCC exclusives, i can use a little break.
  9. that new marvel universe line is gonna blow these outta the water. good thing mattel has a one-up on hasbro for the 6-inch line. i can't see myself collecting another scale. i know that if i buy one figure, it'll turn into all. since DCIH is $4.99 i doubt hasbro will sell theirs at the same price. i spent a ton of cash in the past week on SDCC exclusives, and those marvel two-packs. i need a break like nobody's business!
  10. *sigh* too bad i'll be at work at 8 am with no access to a computer. i wonder what the odds are of the exclusives selling out by 4 PM. i can't afford to call out either. bummer.
  11. there's no difference in the wave 1 and 2 joker figure itself. just sloppy paint apps.
  12. i totally scored today. 4 cases of wave 2 MM figures pulled from the stock room for me. i am a happy boy.
  13. how do you not have a bizarro?! i'd think you'd be missing the harder to find ones. like myself, i'm still looking for batgirl (cassandra cain), manbat, cyborg superman, knight shadow batman, and that clark superman two-pack. anyway, i finally was able to get my fill of movie masters wave 2. all that sleep deprivation and anxiety paid off. i woke up at the crack of dawn today with 4 hours of sleep. i even scored the Batman Begins Chase! now i'll need to find another one.
  14. i'm sacrificing sleep to go out and find these darned things today. the ones that i need are fear toxin bats and batman begins bats. and maybe an extra scarecrow. bert, i'll see what i can do if i find a joker.
