  1. I actually enjoyed the show. Maybe I was just excited to get anything Ghostbusters on TV and in stores. Cliche? Yup! Stereotypical characters? Yup! But there was also ghost busting and that's what I seriously craved. The best episodes of series, though, were when the original Ghostbusters came back. I'm surprised that nobody's mentioned Egon's ridiculous rat tail/pony tail thingy. now that was horrendous. If they Made XGB Figures, I would eat them up. Call me ridiculous, but I've also been looking into making an XGB replica pack.
  2. It's to make the card look vintage. It IS normal. Ha! That's a pretty nice touch! I checked my TRU again last night, no luck, and the moved all the GB stuff too, so I have a feel I won't see these in my neck of the swamp. Don't give up hope! They've been clearancing GB stuff left and right at my TRU's, but just recently I found the Retro GB's in the Marvel/DC/Toy Story section away from the Retro and GB figures. I more than enjoy my guys and I have set them up next to their 12" movie counterparts around the display formed of Gozer when you put the four twelve inch boxes together.
  3. It's not the Elite class one which has more detail. For instance $30 for the one you bought, but the Elite class with chrome is $100. My Joyride Ecto was around $50 when it came out, if I remember correctly, and it's a lot smaller.
  4. Super excited about this Ecto 1 and I already have the Joyride version. $100 price tag is not much for what it could turn out to be. It's big, it's die cast, and I can tell from the prototype images alone that this could have a heck of a lot of detail. Notice that all of the doors look like they can be opened. Everyone's been complaining about an Ecto that'll fit the Matty figures, but even in plastic it would be close to this price tag and I think more people than you'd think would pass. Color this one a Christmas gift 2011.
  5. Do we know, yet, when to expect the Young Justice figures in stores? I can't seem to find anything. For the most part I'll save some money on some DCUC. Excited about the Rainbow Lanterns wave, excited about the Crime Syndicate pack, but the Super Powers wave is a big pass to me. Never watched Superfriends and don't recognize any of the characters. Will get Cpt Boomerang, though. Glad he's the modern version.
  6. Finally got my computer so I can reply. I am, for one, completely satisfied with what I see. The only disappointment is that I didn't see much new. We knew about Vinze (which I've thought from the start would be great) and we knew about Slime Thrower Winston (which is improved better than I could have hoped for). I wanna see the RTBY team finished and seeing that awesome librarian ghost makes it that much sweeter. It would have been sweeter if it was a new mold we didn't think we'd be getting, but that ghost is awesome. Now at SDCC or before I want to see Vigo. Don't want Gozer or Terror Dogs, Neca took care of them for me. I just want Vigo and Ghostbusters without packs. On an aside, it looks like I'll be saving money in the DCUC department. Super Powers reveal is a huge pass for me.
  7. I think I'll forgive DS for the lack of new proton packs. Those wands look amazing! And the ghosts...they are exactly what I would have selected. Can't wait!
  8. Just a heads up for any that may have missed it in the Minimates Q&A. The Real Ghostbusters figures are not getting new molds of the pack or the uniform, but are getting new molds of the wands. This, actually, disappoints me. I love the RGB pack design and am wondering if I'll ever see it in some toy form any time soon. Toy Fair should reveal a lot about the upcoming line.
  9. Got the figures in this afternoon. Wow! This is one of my favorite waves, by far. I've also am reading Batman: Knightfall for the first time, so getting Bane and Az Bats is awesome.
  10. Hhhmmm, could an American actor play James Bond? I'm cool with the casting decision. I think he has the look. Can't wait till we start getting pics of suits and what not, though I know that's a ways down the road.
  11. Looking forward to getting my whole set from EE tomorrow. Every Walmart in my area has reset without Classics so online might be my route for a while.
  12. Other than the preview figure have we heard of a possible release date for these and the movie masters figures?
  13. That's funny. I always got the feeling from other interviews that he really liked GB. Haven't watched this review yet, though. As for GB2. I love it to death and am probably going to instant stream it soon since it's in HD. For some reason there are movies out there that are popular to hate. Maybe I'm biased because of childhood memories, but I still love it and think it's a great flick. I will acknowledge, though, that they toned down the jokes from the adult level they were in the first one. I think RGB and a larger child fan base caused that. Other than that, it followed the formula perfectly and still gave something fresh and new. One thing that really hurt GB2 at the box office is that it was overshadowed by '89 Batman that opened, I think, the week before. Never underestimate the power of a huge blockbuster to make other movies look bad.
  14. Right now I'm leaning towards Qui-Gon being a hallucination. It's too coincidental that all three of them have visions like that at the same time. Still, if Qui-Gon really is the spirit form, I can stretch my mind enough to fully accept it as canon. Though I know it was not Lucas' intention, but Obi-Wan in Revenge guessed, rather quickly, who the person Yoda was telling him about someone visiting him. Perhaps Obi-Wan had the same visit once? Also, Yoda mentions he will teach Obi-Wan how to commune with him. Even though Obi-Wan had a visit in the Clone Wars, doesn't mean he knows how to fully commune with those who have passed on. Anyways, that's my ramblings.
  15. That was standard for the Dark Knight 3 3/4" figures if I remember correctly. I have a couple of those and they had next to no articulation. I think they feel that they can go the cheap route with these thinking that only kids will be picking these up. I wish they would go the route that Hasbro has been going with their movie figures. The Iron Man 2 figures were better than most of the Marvel Universe that came out last year. Articulation aside, I think this figure 'looks' a bit better than some of the other 3 3/4" figures we've already seen for the movie. I do like the fist construct with him. Hopefully they give constructs to the movie masters.
  16. I concur about Kristen Stewart as Lois Lane. I don't think the girl really knows how to smile and her personality on film and in person is to subdued for the energy required to be Lois Lane. Kate Bosworth had the energy, but she was way too skinny and way too young. I'm putting my trust in Zack Snyder. I liked the Watchmen a whole lot and thought it was well cast. The new actor to play Supes certainly looks like Supes and I hope he can pull off a great Superman and Clark Kent. So far it's looking good to me.
  17. No issues with my feet or the color. Would've loved to have him a bit bigger or with a flight stand as other have mentioned, but even without them I like him a lot.
  18. Omg, the arrogance of this statement just kills me. Who are you exactly to determine who the "real fan" are? It's the truth, the film was trash, the public didn't warm up to it, a few people here on TNI and abroad like it,.....so what.......neither WB or DC warmed up to it. Singers gone and so is Routh, the proof is right there. Also some may backtrack because they are scared but yes there is a reason Routh was picked and his costume stylzed as it was. Can't escape truth no matter how PC some people here try to be. That's still an opinion friend. Critically the movie did fine. It wasn't absolutely loved, but it was in the like category. Plus, the reception of Superman Returns can also be attributed to another film that came out a week before called Pirate's of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. That movie was not good, but the love of the first movie ensured that hardly any movies other than it got much love that whole summer let alone the few weeks it came out. Say you don't like it, thought it was terrible and swear of its existence, but don't 'assume' the same opinion for the rest of us. I actually know a lot of people who fell in love with the character of Superman because of the movie.
  19. Now here's a question for those tired of seeing Lex. What if he constructed his battle suit in the film and became, physically, a more formidable opponent for Superman? Would it be acceptable to use Lex then?
  20. I have to agree, Superman III was a turkey. But it does have some good points. For one, I've been a fan of Annette O'Toole since long before she played Mama Kent on Smallville. Second, even if it wasn't used to anywhere near it's full potential, the killer "Super-Computer" from the climax is one of the coolest concepts I've seen in a superhero movie. (Maybe Nolan can rip it off for his film.) Finally, and most importantly, the Junkyard Battle. A lot of fans consider that one scene to be the finest piece of fim to come out of ALL the Supermovies put together. Was the killer Super-Computer based at all on Brainiac? Does anyone know? Every time I watch it I think of him. Loved the junkyard battle, though the concept that using nicotine to create kryptonite turned superman bad was silly. Wow! Just realized that this thread was about the new Superman who was cast (he certainly looks the part) not about how bad Superman Returns was or gay bashing. Hard to know that by reading it.
  21. Wow! I cannot believe some of the hate for Superman Returns. Was it perfect? Heck no, but I still watch it on Bluray from time to time. Do you know what I don't own in any way shape or form? The trash that is called Superman IV. If ever there was a movie that needs to be gone it is that. Superman reveals his identity to Lois, takes her for that overdone fly through the skies, lands and kisses her so that she forgets who he is. Not only is that super corny, but it is 10x more terrible than Routh's costume in Returns. If I was going to rank the Superman movies in order it would be Superman, Superman II, Superman Returns, Superman III, and Superman IV. Superman III and Returns are pretty close, but where Superman Returns suffers from a poorly casted Lois and a flawed, but not movie ruining attempt to give Superman a son, Superman III was getting into the Batman and Robin cheezy department. PS What I just wrote above is called an opinion, defined as: a personal belief or judgment that is not founded on proof or certainty Because 95% of what is written in this thread is an opinion, not founded on proof or certainty, they don't matter too much in the end. If I don't agree and you don't agree, chances are nobody'll change their mind anyway.
  22. Picked up Kup at a Target in Burlington, NC. I know from TFW2005 boards that Scourge and the RTS Wave 2 figs are out here, too.
  23. I've been watching Batman fight crime in the same black rubber suit for 22 years, the GL suit looks fine to me. I concur. I think the suit designs are amazing (love Sinestro's) and am anxiously awaiting the Movie Master line. This is a tease and I want more. That said, board games, roleplay items, and the regular line aren't tempting me.
  24. That was one of the best parts in the game, when they're in the cemetery near the end. "Maybe we should let the Rookie drive." They all look at each other and say in unison, "Nah!"
  25. http://protoncharging.com/gb/2011/01/27/new-environment-trailer-for-sanctum-of-slime-plus-a-release-date/ It's a new team that is started with help of the rookie. I don't feel like it's a true sequel, though, as it's only a downloadable arcade game. Will that stop me from picking it up? Heck no! I'd join you, RockthePlank, but I have it for the 360. I don't know if I ever maxed out to level 20 online. May have to pick it up again. If you have a Wii and haven't tried that version yet, I encourage you to. There are some very different elements, primarily in boss fights, between both versions.
