  1. The Atom has been working out.
  2. I saw the Rattler and Skystriker at Target this week. The Skystriker looks cool but I always thought the Rattler had a dumpy, non-aerodynamic design. What I want to know is - are we going to ever see any new, updated vehicles for Joe? Personally the motorcycles in particular were kind of blah and I'd like to see some cool new ones. At the Toy Fair where they first showed us the VAMP, they said it was all new, but obviously the part-timer that was hired didn't know what he was talking about. I want new stuff!
  3. I went by Target today and all they had was an unmasked Deathstroke and a yellow Sinsestro. Weird. I'm guessing someone had hidden them somewhere and a clerk brought them back to the toy aisle.
  4. This story has to be a fake. Unless Cher is training a new Catwoman or something so that there's two. You know, one who's young and hot and looks good in black leather jumping across roofs.
  5. I don't mind pre-applied stickers if they're applied right, but that seems to be a difficult task for Hasbro. The Cobra symbol on the Trouble Bubble canopy was full of air bubbles. I tried to remove it and reapply it but the exposed parts of the decal were useless. I'd much rather have a had one on a sheet to afix myself.
  6. Personally I think the good stuff of Toy Biz was much better than DCUC. I think the best stuff of Hasbro is equivilent of DCUC. I like DCUC and I plan to get the few characters that I want, the main JLU and bad guys, unless they make the rare BAF that I want like the upcoming Grundy, in which case I'll get the whole wave. Hasbro has improved with the new Hulk wave, but some of the figures are still lacking in range of motion. I'm looking at Doc Samson right now and his hip joint is limited. There's no forward motion so he can't sit in a chair well or kick forward. The joints on the upcoming figures look better, so we'll see if Hasbro can take the lead from DCUC.
  7. I'm jealous! Your set looks great.
  8. I found a set at TRU. I got the Wink. Very cool figure for Thor to wail on.
  9. These don't do much for me. If they had articulation similar to the new GI Joe, I'd probably get them. Otherwise I'm passing.
  10. I think Superman's biggest weakness is a good strong kick to the nuts.
  11. I asked this very question of the Hasbro guy at the Joe booth at SDCC. He said he had just found the casts for the Terrordrome. He said there were no plans at this point for a Terrordrome, but it is a possibility for the future.
  12. Very nice. I'm glad to have VAMP and Clutch again. My only problem with Clutch is that the shin part of his pants is a different color green. Otherwise it's a very nice set.
  13. They better tell us soon. I'm getting a little tired of the five months of suspense.
  14. They are really quite good. I just wish the Fantastic Four wave was as good as these because there were quite a few of those figures I had wanted. Wendigo looks great. He and End Hulk are on my desk right now. Wendigo towers over FA Wolverine. If there were any change I would make to Wendigo, it would probably be that his mane was made of a little softer plastic to allow the neck joint that is there to move better. Otherwise, I think that's it. Even the frozen in place, posed hands look better than a movable claws hand would have. Excellent work.
  15. It does seem odd that wave 1 has 5 figures and wave 2 only has 3. I wonder if there's any chance Hasbro will add a couple of more figures back to the line for wave 2? I suppose they just wanted to cash in on the Hulk movie with these guys. Though I don't really need any more figures of the Hulk himself, King Hulk and the End Hulk are both really well done and I'm glad to have them. King Hulk's weapons look better than I thought they would. The End Hulk has a lot of texture to his skin. Really well done.
  16. Actually, that backs up the Carnage theory. The sun emits all kinds of radiation including gamma. The sun might have somehow burned off the symbiote, mutated Kassady and flung him back to Earth.
  17. I found a complete set of wave 1 at TRU today on my lunch break. The skins have good texture and they all include a paint wash. The joints have fairly good range of motion. These guys do look very good and I'm happy with the wave. There is still some room for improvement to get us back to where Toy Biz was in terms of articulation, but I think the Hulk line is a step in the right direction. Two thumbs up for Hasbro!

    More Con Images

    Big Boa was a surprise. I'm looking forward to several of these figures.
  19. Don't forget about the Green Arrow going to prison and confronting the people he put in there a la Batman and Punisher movie. That sounds like a good concept, even if it's been used several times before.
  20. This wave is great and all, but where's Flash??

    What a great face you sculpted. I like the pensive brow.
  22. I ain't buyin' it. Carnage is a psycho and he doesn't care about guns. Even if Carnage was Hulked out somehow, I doubt he'd look like that. He's more like the Punisher. That guy would be happy to kill the Abomination. He might be some thug/assassin like Bullseye or someone.
