  1. Well I think you can rationalize it several ways, but the bottom line is that $120 is $120. I do think Snake Eyes has the ability to have that "wow" factor when seen in person. That's something true of many things - collectible or otherwise. Seeing it in person tells the tale. There is more likely to be a bit more "hmmmmm" when the quality is sitting (or standing) right in front of you.
  2. The price kinda shocked me. I know that Sideshow's price scheme fluctuates based on the figure released - just look at the variety of prices across the Star Wars 12" line. I was considering "going completist" on this line...but starting it out at $120 is tough to swallow.
  3. Not yet. They have only announced that it is a Geordi. That part about him being from the Voyager episode is only speculation..... I am definitely curious!

  5. Hey all - Latest word on the street of the world wide web is that the upcoming "Alternate Realities" DVD set includes an offer for an exclusive figure. According to Diamond, it is of Geordi. One website is speculating that it is his "alternate reality" self from the Voyager episode Timeless. That's an interesting idea. The differences would be he would have a command red collar for the purple uniform, gray hair, and that future communicator. While that sounds appropriate for the box set, I wouldn't mind Season 1 Lieutenant J.G. Geordi in red. "Blind man flying the ship" edition. Apparently you gotta buy the set in order to get the fig. It's another one of THOSE types of things. You can preorder the set from Amazon for $27.99. It's a 5 disc set. 20 episodes + "exclusive bonus features." I am probably not going to go for it as I kinda already have all the ST episodes I need on DVD.
  6. I had no idea they were making a sequel to Starship Troopers.
  7. People around here (Houston) have already picked up GL and Hawkman from this wave.
  8. The metal ones from G1. The crazy cool sparkle-painted ones from Beast Wars. ...and that's about it.
  9. Jase - Ahh man. These figures look great. I don't know if I am going to jump in on the whole thing or not. It sure can be expensive. Leroy - Not sure about opening the other one yet. I don't really have a good place to put her, and I don't want to have both Batgirls right next to each other in the display case. Hmmmm...we'll see. Maybe when the Mego one shows up, I'll have to do a photo shoot of them both.
  10. Extra notes: The "Batpurse" comes packaged "off" the belt. I haven't decided to put it on or not. The half open hands grip the Batarang very easily. Accessories and extra hands: Finally, here is a shot of the base with brightness/contrast up high so you can see the logo: I thought the color scheme of both the Variant and the Classic Batgirl is excellent. I like the fire red hair of the variant Batgirl. It contrasts with the blue, black and yellow quite well. The classic Batgirl hair is quite a bit more tame both in paint scheme and in the fact you don't have to manage it. I know you hair haters are out there, but I still love this one. All I need now is a 13" scale motorcycle. Make it happen DC!
  11. Since the variant has "real hair," Barbara comes packaged in "cafeteria mode" Carefully removing the hairnet and untwisting the hair leaves it in a very...err...neat and tidy..<cough>...style. Errr...well..... Just look!! Your fears have been confirmed. Rat nest Batgirl does exist (but I still love her). Okay here are some full shots. I thought they did a great job with giving her a strong but sexy look. The loose-fitting belt that you could tilt at an angle helps quite a bit.
  12. Hey all. Well...it's official. I am now a part of the 13" DC club. I've been wanting Batgirl since her first convention debut earlier this year. From that point until now, there have not been very many pictures of the figure. Even after its release, I have not seen many pictures. I assume Shaun Wong and Michael Crawford will have some excellent pictures up on their websites here soon. Until then, perhaps I can help out a bit. I snapped a few photos of the Variant 13" Batgirl. She looks really good....really good. There are a few complaints, but overall I am happy with the figure. I also have the Classic 13" Batgirl. Classic will probably get displayed with the 70s Mego Batgirl that is on the way. Goodness - it'll be beautiful. The pictures. I thought it was nice of them to do different photos and graphic art for the Classic and Variant Batgirl boxes. Rather than just toss the variant inside a mass printing of the "standard" Batgirl box, they did some different photos and different poses. Forgive my glare. I was in a hurry to shoot the boxes. Opening the front flap reveals a picture all too familiar for Batman/Batgirl fans - As I took her out of the package, I noticed a few things that were disturbing. Glue on the cape. Chipped paint on the hands. How on earth did glue get on the cape? Did I hear correctly that chipped paint on the hands is "normal" for the DC 13" line? That's disappointing.
  13. Then you need to come over to my home. @loll@ Seriously though - I am actually blown away by the sound more often than the video.
  14. Ahh man. It sure looks good on the MOTU She-Ra exclusive. Of course....it makes a lot of sense that it would be on She-Ra.
  15. Looking forward to this one...on Blu-ray! It's time for some justice in high definition.
  16. Good point. This will be my first 13" figure (or ...figure"s" since I have to buy both of them) in the DC 13" line. Wow. Yeah that's a big load of $$, but the price fits considering how hard DC made it to obtain the figure. Kinda crazy. Ahh well...I guess it could have ended up being a con exclusive or something. Yikes.
  17. Hmm. One of the things that made me cave to buy the variant Batgirl was the rooted hair. I thought it looked a lot better. It has more "flair" to it. Jase - How did you manage to "break down and order the variant Batgirl as well?" Is there some secret site you have to hit up in order to get the variant Batgirl? It look me forever to manage and preorder one and I had to preorder the freakin' regular & variant Batgirl from BBTS when I only want the variant.
  18. It'll happen. Then Lois will sleep with Lex, Superman will commit suicide, Wonder Woman will....get married, Hal Jordon will speak at funerals the rest of his life, and Wally West will fast for 40 days. .....and then Jason Todd will wake up and discover it was all a dream while D.C. throws out the last 20 years of events from their so-called "canon."
  19. Seems to me this is a perfect opportunity to get a real director for the next film. While they are at it, maybe they could get a script and some character development. More dialog for the Decepticons, please. @smilepunch@
  20. Hmm...well I guess I am stuck with Stoney Crusher then. Interesting that they elected to make a correction.
  21. Technically, high definition media can still appear to look better than standard definition on an SDTV. Mpeg2 is not without its flaws. All DVD players are not created equal just as all discs are not created equal. However, this discussion becomes irrelevant if someone simply uses composite video to hook up their DVD player. If one has the desire to take their HD setup to the next level by purchasing a next gen media player, go ahead. I don't back the thought that buying HD media right now is future proofing oneself. If you don't have the equipment to truly support a high def disc and don't plan on buying it right now, then wait.
  22. TNG. Definitely. I would trade away all the TNG movies for one more season. Heck - I would trade away Deep Space Nine for another season of TNG.
  23. HD-DVD was essentially on its way out the door until this "deal" was made. Blu-ray has been outselling it 2:1. It was about time for the war to end, and now it is going to stretch on a little longer. Personally, I don't see HD-DVD making it the full "18 months" from this pay-off.
  24. So I totally didn't like it that much. Haha! I hope they get someone else to write the second movie. I thought this movie was lacking in practically everything except for action & even the action was tough to follow. Plot, character development, dialog, a conclusion...they all were pretty much missing from this film. I don't go for the "well, it's an action movie" answer either. This movie could have been a lot better than it was. The cool thing is - it can be better (in a way) when they put together the sequels.
  25. My first statue was Skeletor. My favorite would have to be Sideshow Leia.
