  1. Interesting that the Target exclusives are now available at BBTS. Makes me wonder if classic Roadblock is going to get there at some point? How long did Target get with their exclusives? How long as Amazon had Roadblock?
  2. That is one good looking head. Are they easy to swap?
  3. I'm not seeing it either, which I assume means it's gone. I figured with it being so hard to find, there still might be a few left. Nope.
  4. I was on the fence about another Haslab project, but now I'm totally onboard.
  5. Maybe Snake-Eyes knows that's really Zartan disguised as Scarlett and he's trying to tire him out before springing his trap. So what head is that on Scarlett?
  6. I'm going to be watching it, too. I'm guessing it will be a little more serious than Peacemaker though, not that Peacemaker didn't have heavy moments.
  7. I love that Zarana has a bit of a muffin top! This is really a great line. I pre-ordered one.
  8. He comes with a disembodied brain? That is pretty wild. What a great looking figure. Hasbro is really hitting it out of the park with the new Joe line. I can't wait to start seeing some Dreadnoks.
  9. Hopefully they release a classic Roadblock. I never did find that one.
  10. 1 to 1 scale models are fun to assemble but at that size you're probably going to go through a lot of Testors.
  11. Very dynamic. Great shot! (by both the photographer and Snake-Eyes)
  12. It seemed like McFarlane was pumping out a new wave of figures every week. It felt like he had a very limited window with the DC license so he was trying to grab as much cash as possible, rather than building a brand over years, or even decades, as in Marvel Legends case. If one outsells the other in a particular business cycle, that doesn't mean they've won the race.
  13. That's too bad. I was really looking forward to overpaying for some plastic ruined castle miniature. Maybe I'll check Amazon.
  14. While price increases do suck, there may be a silver lining. Typically raising prices with consistent demand equals fewer sales, as Hasbro is forecasting. This means Marvel Legends won't be a volume business, or at least compared to what it was. They will be forced then to cater to the adult collector market more than they do, which means giving us stuff on our top ten lists, filling out teams, etc. I'm sure they will still crank out the major characters but they may also give us more characters that will sell well to a smaller base.
  15. Those sets look cool. What's the link for scalper's auctions?
  16. I passed on getting Toad in the first wave because I knew one day they would come out with an actual Marvel Legend version. I should have gone into a coma for 20 years.
  17. Namor hanging out at the fish tank. Nice touch.
  18. Sgt. Slammer reminds me of someone. I can't quite put my finger on it.
  19. There have been a lot of retro figures coming out. The Defenders of the Earth line with Phantom, Flash Gordon etc. Up next ... Captain Planet. He'll be saying, "I told you so," on the packaging.
  20. I agree that a 6 inch line seems like the logical guess. I remember when they showcased the 2008 line at Toy Fair they were pushing that the Indy line was compatible with the new 3 3/4 GI Joe line they were putting out. The problem was, the Joe figures were actually a little bigger than 3 3/4 and the Indiana Jones figures looked puny next to them. The point is, they obviously wanted to link a new line to an existing line, hoping to sweep in some collectors. Makes sense they would still want to do that. It's really working for the Joe line. I'd imagine they will be something like they current Joe line. I am really looking forward to seeing what they do.
  21. Great looking custom. I'm hoping Hasbro re-releases the classic version of Roadblock that was an Amazon exclusive. I don't want to pay $60 in the secondary market for him.
