  1. So far so good its not exploded as I thought so far I agree. I'm impressed with how it hasn't exploded into straight bashing territory. Honestly, the only one bashed so far is Obama. Wonder Woman...a lesbian...te he.
  2. Riiiiight At these prices, it really is time to call it quits. I think the only 3 3/4" figures I may buy from here on out are vintage Joes. In the mean time, I wasn't planning on getting many ASM figure, I'm not much of a fan of the new costume. If I need a Spidey-Movie figure, I have the 6" one from the original movies. It's just becoming too, too much. I just want to figure out how figures like this that lose articulation (super articulation Spidey not included) are jumping up in price by almost $4 in some cases. I know the economy is crap and gas changes with the beating of butterfly wings in China, but this is not an incremental increase. I'm still trying to figure out how I can go to Target and see a DCUC Wave 20 figure with a collect and connect piece and accessory for $15.99, but the Batman Legacy figures are $19.99. Really?
  3. I echo this sentiment exactly. The first thing that comes to mind is Daken. He's seen with women and men and everybody wonders, "gay or straight?" The response: he's not defined by either. The story is that his sexuality is just another way to take advantage of others and get whatever job done. That fits, and makes since. As a pastor in NC I have been deeply disturbed by recent incidents like the passing of Amendment One and the utter hate I witnessed in the church and the community and how it was hidden under the guise of 'faith.' My hurt is still healing from hearing the responses of those I serve as pastor and whom I love. That's another issue and not important for this discussion, though. What is important is that I think it's too early to ascribe political agenda or attention grabbing scheme to this move from DC. Regardless of others feelings on the topic of LGBT, homosexuality is a very real part of our culture which becomes more diverse everyday. I live in the country (I mean COUNTRY), and homosexual couples exist even out here. Laura had two lesbian couples (that's four lesbians) attend the church she served in the middle of nowhere. Truth is, the fact that we don't see this too often in comics in our comics speaks a false truth about our society. That all said, if I read who it is and the story doesn't fit and it feels like a stunt, I'll call it a stunt. However, if it proves to feel like a natural and truthful move for the character, I have absolutely no problem with it and applaud it.
  4. I thought wow how hot she was in this I like her character on "How I met your Mother" but wow this was even better Ditto. Also, Avengers is number 1 again this weekend. Will this top the not-as-great Avatar. Fingers crossed. Star wars is already in the crosshairs.
  5. I'm closer to the goldsboro area. There's a comic book store right near the air force base I used to get my comics from every weekend when I was little. I know the place you speak of. Dated a girl from Goldsboro and she took me there once.
  6. Same here. Has Matty said anything new about this 'Wave 21' they came up with after deciding to postpone the new line? It's been weird not getting much new at retail that's DC related. Guess that'll change some, though, with the Batman push for Dark Knight Rises.
  7. I'll check it out. Nothing in the trailer screamed "I have to watch this!" but then nothing screamed "This'll be terrible!" either. I like Green Arrow and miss Smallville, so we'll see what they do with the character.
  8. Yep, they sure are. Got my one set yesterday. Out of curiosity, where in NC are you? I'm over in the Elon/Burlington Area until July and then Durham.
  9. These are in NC, too. I know two stores had them between Burlington and Greensboro. Emphasis on 'had.' Left two IMs, two CAs, and a Thor at East Burlington Walmart if any readers are nearby. I love them. That's all I'll say. Great articulation, Hawkeye has a GREAT Jeremy Renner likeness and I'm all about Loki's removable elements (that could be read wrong). I know a lot of us are bummed that Marvel Legends won't return until September, but these are great figs to hold me over until then. Glad they came out when they did as I really wanted some Avengers merchandise after watching that awesome film event of the same name and the 3 3/4" figs weren't really cutting it (though I love the Quinjet).
  10. Saw the Mines of Moria set at Walmart, but it didn't have a price in the system yet. Sweet stuff! My paycheck next week will have a little something for these sets.
  11. Picked up the Avengers Movie 6" CA and IM at a Walmart in NC. That's all they had as a member of TheFwoosh boards beat me to the others.
  12. Just never been a fan of his style. Also felt the opening of the Avengers to be a lil too amateurish looking, like it belonged on tv or something And when someone has the balls to mention a movie like "Raiders of the Lost Ark" in context with what they're trying to sell me, I hold em to it: that goes double for you, Joe Johnston. "COBIE SMULDERS Wait, did we get a Michael Bay script by accident? Is there an asteroid headed for Earth? SAMUEL L. JACKSON Nah, that's just writer/director Joss Whedon dialogue. Funny when it's trying to be funny, hilarious when it's trying to be serious." I here that Raiders analogy thrown out a lot, but one cannot equate The Avengers movie to a classic like that...at least not yet. That analogy comes much, much, much later on down the road when Bluray is an outdated format that we cling to like eight track tapes, refusing to buy movies like the Star Wars trilogy for the 15th time. If we're still wearing out copies (and our children are wearing them out, too) then it gets to be equated with Raiders. All that said, I would not be surprised if this ended up to be true, but for now I'll just say it is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. PS I love Cracked.
  13. Picked up a DKR Bats from Walmart in NC today. Sucks to buy a figure I already have, but I'm excited to put the Bat Signal together.
  14. Totally agree. I love all the new characters though I will admit that the jump in time feels a bit jarring. I wonder if there will be some flashback sequences or something to help fill in the gaps between seasons.
  15. Found them at Walmart, too, but they weren't in the system and didn't have a price. Target's online prices make TRU's look ridiculous. TRU Had Helm's Deep for $159.99 while Target's price is $129.99.
  16. They're supposed to charge your account around a week in advance and have the figure shipped by the sale day. It's one of the incentives of a sub. Don't have Infinite Earths, but this is is how it goes with Voltron.
  17. So upset with myself. I never miss a Matty sale day, even when there's nothing of interest to me. But yesterday my brain was in another place and I forgot to order Flash.
  18. oh, Joss...if this was tv: cancelled. I'm down with Wheedon's line of thinking here. In fact, it's suprisingly refreshing. How many times have we seen sequels where the director boasts "We're going BIGGER than the last one!" (Michael Bay? Revenge of the Fallen? Anyone...?) The movie will already have good actors playing our favorite characters. If the story is good, it will succeed. This was my line of thinking, too.
  19. I remember in an interview with Joss Whedon he was asked how the sequel would look. His reply was that he was going to go smaller. The idea is to focus the movie on the Avengers and their relationships instead of just trying to be bigger than the first one. I'm interested to see how this take works.
  20. Thanks for the pic man he is really cool. I'll be picking him up. Picked this up earlier today. Super sweet figure and can't wait to get home and pose him with the other Avengers.
  21. I respect your opinion, but I did want to mention that Hawkeye did run out of arrows. To use his grapple arrow he had to pull one from a dead Chitauri's carcass. Speaking of Hawkeye, I didn't think his character was particularly interesting, but his quiver was awesome. I loved how a button press on his bow chose the arrow tip and attached it before he pulled it out.
  22. Someone I talked to today said that Hulk's line was simply, "demigod," commenting on the fact that Loki wasn't as awesome as he thought he was. Watched the movie twice and couldn't hear the line after because of the laughter, too.
  23. I don't have any problems with the suit, but I do think this detail very strange. It's as if they just forgot to finish it or something.
  24. I second that. What's everyone's guess about how long til that happens? Will we see connections begin showing up in IM3 and continue in the next Thor and CA or do you think it'll just happen? You know that's another thing that connects The Avengers movie to the comics. Rarely does a storyline just end. There's always that last detail in an epilogue that hints to something even more sinister in the next storyline of the ongoing comic. The scene with Thanos captured that beautifully.
  25. Anyone see that The Avengers actually made 207 million, a whole 7 million more than predicted. Wowsers!
