  1. These are just starting to hit stores in Canada, I've come across everything except Cyclops, mostly at Walmart or TRU... Warlock needs his left leg!!! I have the old Toybiz Colossus so this new one is going to hit ebay. It's a really cool wave imo. Old Man Logan seems to be the one left behind the most.
  2. If anyone's interested CG and Big Boa are back up for pre-order at BBTS. Personally, I don't want all of them except those two but, missing out on SDCC Jinx AND the awesome Oktober Guard convention set has me very tempted.....
  3. Hmm. Just had a thought.... Who wants to bet that the Shield Helicarrier will be re-decoed as a USS Flagg down the road?
  4. Well that's just maddening....... BTW BBTS has some of the marvel legends up for pre-order. Perhaps it's a better price than ebay? I don't want them personally.......
  5. Enlighten me please. Who is this?
  6. Why? Because life isn't fair that's why. Their previous sets have never been worthwhile to me before. I've always stayed away from the club because it just didn't look justifiable and travelling to the con for the only reason of going to the con was never really justifiable..... But now, I want almost everything. The club did a phenomenal job on their exclusives this year IMO, even half of their FSS is pretty good. Shame I'll never have them unless they go back into production. I really want them.
  7. I was one of the people who watched the bootleg online. A decision I sorely regret. I wish I waited and watched it the first time in theaters, because you missed a lot watching the poor quality bootleg. For example; near the end when Thor picks up his hammer in that field and he raises it to the sky and the lighting bolt strikes it. On the bootleg it looked like the studio is trying to say 'Hey! look at this cool CGI! Remember he has lighting powers?', but watching in good quality you can see the armor building on him giving that whole scene purpose. I have heard he's not really dead as well. Way I see it; since Nick Fury was willing to get the trading cards out of his locker and then lie to the team saying he had it on him, justifying it by "They needed the push", then I can also see Fury lying about the medical team being able to save his life because well "They needed the push", or something like that. The Hulk out of no where punching Thor Cap giving the team direction and telling Hulk to smash I did NOT like how the Hulk was handled in this movie. The Hulk scenes seemed to contradict themselves. Finally someone has the courage to tell the truth of about the movie. I think a lot of people are pretending not to see the direct copying of these elements, again there are soooo many that it is way to obvious to see unless people choose not see or believe. If it was one comparison then fine but multiples. Even the ending with the missle, straight from Kingdom Come, Batman in an armor suit tries to stop a nuclear missle to eliminate the threat at the source that would destroy both heroes and villians, but mix in the Superman movie with him shooting the missle off into space to explode (Superman I and II,....the elevator hits the Phantom Zone) and then Superman Returns falling down scene with Iron Man. I have seen other blogs and/or comments who said it seemed more like a Justice League movie than an Avengers one. So while most on TNI don't see it, it is making a buzz. Another awesome scene is when Cap tells them that their is "only One God"......that was beautiful and is one of my all time favorite quotes of a movie. There's a very big difference between your opinion and the "truth". Unless you have ironclad physical evidence that while Joss Whedon was writing the movie he said "Oh I'm gonna rip off Justice League, Kingdom Come, etc. then it's just that your opinion not the truth, big difference. To be fair (and I'm just saying here) DC does 'steal' plot points and story lines from Marvel too. One seemingly copying ideas from the other is not a new thing.
  8. Holy smokes, that's impressive! I remember ML Toad being a very high price point on the secondary market not so long ago.
  9. That looked like Clutch to me......
  10. Times like this I wish I could read Japanese. What's going on with those scetches of the Constructicons in the bottom left hand corner? That is a good size BB.
  11. Not months later. But, they can be behind retail in some instances. They can be early too sometimes, it's really luck of the draw depending on the item. I bought a lot of 25th Joes from BBTS over the years. They'd get them after you'd see some local area reports see them pop up at retail but before they were 'everywhere'.
  12. Zero dollars. I don't want one. Wundar is a prime example of what an exclusive should be IMO. A neat figure that is not an essential figure in any collection. Pre-Eternia He-man, colour change Orko, and Mo-Larr also fall under this. They're cool and all but not something that you need to have. Unless you're one of those collectors that are afflicted by completism that is. Hasbro's SDCC Sgt. Slaughter however.......
  13. Neat pics! I'm still waiting on my Orko to arrive...... Edit: Orko came today!
  14. Not a new figure by any stretch of the imagination but Vangelus is my favorite video reviewer. Check it out:
