  1. The figures are sellin too well in my area for me to get lucky with a clearance. Then again I already have bought everything I really want so far. Yes, the Wreckers are awesome and I hope they get around to doing a Roadbuster deluxe in the 'M.A.S.K.' format. Optimus Prime has not been blessed with a good, in scale figure, but I bought the Ultimate one from Walmart.com for $64 and think he is really fun to play with. As much as I love the DOTM figures, I'm ready for Prime to hit the shelves. I've enjoyed my SDCC Prime Prime enough to satiate my hunger, but I need more Prime plastic crack.
  2. If you think Nolan is just sitting around with his hands under his butt you are wrong. Producers actually have more of a hand in this then you might think, after all, they have their own cash invested in the project, and with Nolan's success, I am sure he has his fingers all over the project. I can't wait to see what Snyder and Nolan come up with. Their films speak for themselves, with the commercial success of the Batman franchise, to the incredibly underrated masterpiece that is Watchmen, I think the film will be enjoyable. I won't repeat the whole thing here, but have any of you watched Kevin Smith talk about his time with Superman and the ridiculous requests of the producer. He kept telling Kevin that he didn't want the costume to be 'gay,' like the costume version and that he had to fight a huge spider. When Superman fell through he went on to produce Wild Wild West. He got his huge spider.
  3. I want to go see it real bad, but a new baby's keeping me from the theaters. The fact that I have not seen Captain America yet is heresy. I saw the original with Charleston Heston. It is a great film. If you enjoyed the original movie then you should really enjoy this one. Captain America was boring IMO, but this one here is really good. Understandable about the baby, again, can't wait to see how you guys dress him or her up for Halloween. So far the little guy will either be some form of Ghostbuster/ghost, or maybe even a Green Lantern. We should make him Bzzzd. Sorry to hear you didn't like Captain America. My family and friends have said it's outstanding and it's made it hard to wait. My list is getting bigger and bigger of movies I have to see. Apes and Harry Potter are also on that list.
  4. I know. Just wanted to distance the original from the Tim Burton remake. Liked it as a kid, but watched it again grown up and it's not very good at all.
  5. Walked into my Kmart the other day and they were doing a reset. I kindly asked the gentleman in the back for Thundercats (though I was looking for Batman, too) and he replied there were just a bunch of boxes in the back that he didn't know what was inside. Told me to check back in two weeks when the reset was done. TWO WEEKS? For a reset? He also had three other workers helping him out. I hate Kmart.
  6. I like the look of the costume and I think the cape looks fantastic. I've always been a fan of Superman's cape looking huge in the shoulder area and billowing out in comics and animation. The only example I can think of off the top of my head is Superman in The Batman. Still curious about the briefs and the belt. I personally don't care if he has briefs or not. Also really like the huge 'S'. All in all, the picture is taken in a very dark setting which could explain the costume's darkness. Maybe it would look different if he was, say, flying in a brightly lit setting outside. Can't wait to see more.
  7. I want to go see it real bad, but a new baby's keeping me from the theaters. The fact that I have not seen Captain America yet is heresy. I saw the original with Charleston Heston. It is a great film.
  8. I'm going to be at SciFi Genre in Durham tomorrow. I hope they have that Batman in stock because he looks great.
  9. Checked my Kmart this morning, but no sign of Batman Legacy. It looked like someone put all the stock in one box with a bomb, let it go off, and was content where everything landed. My Kmart is the stereotypical mess. I may have to drive out a town to find these beautiful figs.
  10. I liked it too, though I recognize it's not perfect. I wish the new blu ray set came with a version of the film with some of these deleted scenes edited in. It would give incentive for me to repurchase it.
  11. I love resets. My bank account, however, does not. Guess I'll be checking out my Targets and Walmarts this weekend. Still need a Black Lantern Hal and I want to check out Toyman and Boomerang before buying.
  12. I had no idea there was going to be a Battlestar Galactica movie. Good times. Never saw Sucker Punch and never intend to. I did like the Watchmen quite a bit though. I felt the slow mo wasn't overly used in that film and when it was used it really added weight to the fight scenes. The opening scene with Comedian getting beat up was amazing.
  13. My initial response was..."Aaahhhh!" In all seriousness, if this means a better film, I'm all for the wait. Superman deserves a great film. We've seen some good ones, but I want a great one reminiscent of the first two.
  14. Well DOTM has gotten my money and I'm glad a reboot is looking less and less likely. This movie will not lose much steam because word of mouth (contrary to many on these boards) is really good (Cinema score of 'A' from viewers and 90% of people liking it at Rottentomatoes.com). We'll see it take a hit in the next few weeks with more blockbuster films coming out (Harry Potter, Cap America, and Cowboys and Aliens), but don't expect it to go quietly into the night. I for one hope to see it at least once more. IMAX, if I'm lucky. What's it up to, 500 or 600 million worldwide? If only Green Lantern could have had half of that turnout!
  15. Yeah. Arcee and Bumblebee are not transformed right if you compare them to other convention appearances.
  16. I don't think many, save the critics (like with GL) think Dark of the Moon is trash. I think it's the best of the trilogy and I really liked the first one. Buzz on the TF boards is the same and considering it almost made more money in the first day than GL made in the first weekend, it could be bad news for GL. Don't get me wrong. At the start of the summer GL was at the top of my list as movie I thought was going to be amazing good and, though I really liked it, I'd be lying if I thought it was the best thing I've seen this summer. I want it to succeed, but Transformers, even in an off market, will do well and that will hurt other movies.
  17. Havent seen XMFC yet but I'm guessing it's because in Wolverine we see a young Emma Frost and old Prof X and in XMFC we see a young Prof X and older Emma Frost... It doesn't fit because... SPOILERS Professor Xavier walks out of the helicopter at the end of Wolverine even though he's paralyzed at the end of First Class. When does Wolverine take place? 90's? END SPOILERS
  18. A bold confession. I, too, was very impressed with this film. If you told me that it would be in the running for favorite movie of the year, I would not have believed you. The characters felt real, the action was awesome, and I was genuinely moved in some scenes. It also matched up well with the continuity of the other films with a few hiccups (one in particular that happens at the end of Wolverine: Origins, but what made sense about that movie anyways). Saw some movies so far this year that I 'want' to see again before they leave the theater, but this one I 'have' to see again.
  19. I'm not feeling this wave all too much, either. Bring on 17 and then I'll just take a break for a couple of waves save Boomerang and Sandman. Would've loved that GA Flash, too.
  20. People are finding them at Wal-Marts, too. So far Wally World has been the only place with NautKeLoi or however you spell that guys name.
  21. I haven't seen the trailers for Captain America, maybe I'll go look for them tonight. Hey did you pick up a Lex Luthor from Matty. I opened mine last night and I love it, it looks better in person, more like Hackman and I just can't get over the wigs for Luthor.................awesome!!! I actually didn't pick him up due to lack of funds at the time. Glad to hear he's awesome.
  22. First off, Green Lantern is my most anticipated movie of the summer. The latest TV Spots and Wondercon footage just further strengthened that opinion. That being said, the first trailer for Captain America is making me just as excited. When I saw little skinny guy Steve Rogers get beefed up with the Super Soldier Serum I was instantly pumped. Though I may not be as excited for Thor, I am super pumped (it comes out on my birthday weekend). The recent, very positive reviews have given me great hope about the future of the Thor series and especially the endless possibilities for the Avengers movie next summer. Can't wait to go green this summer, but Thor will certainly be a nice distraction until then.
  23. I might have to pick up this Hal, too. Glad that he also comes with another construct.
  24. what is the street date for these? May 1st.
  25. Green Lantern's my favorite DC Hero next to Batman so I hope they do it justice. I will say that after the Wondercon footage my hope went through the roof. I also love these figures. If the movie does well, I'm sure it'll be hard to keep some of these on the shelf. Collectors might not go for the 4" line, but kids will. There already selling out at the TRU near me that broke street date.
