  1. I had those too when I was a lad (Warduke and the elf were my fav.s), fun times. While I'm not a WoW fan per se, I'm all for any 1:18 scale lines as it's my scale of choice. There's a lack of fantasy/sword-n-sorcery figures in this scale lately that needs reviving. Hopefully remakes of "Clash of the Titans" and other upcoming fantasy films will renew interest.
  2. Whoo-hoo!! After 2 years of silence, Max Factory Guyver figures are back! Pre-orders are starting to pop-up for the upcoming (March) release of Zoalord Imakarum Mirabilis. While it's a bit pricey (even more-so than past releases) at over $100, it's worth every penny IMHO. Hopefully this is just the tip of the ice berg (they still owe me that Archanfel that was shown a few years ago...they can keep the "red gigantic" though) and many more characters (Zero and the remaining Hyper-Zoanoid Five please!) are on the way. I wouldn't be opposed to more economical re-releases of the previous fig.s eith
  3. ...and there's also the one that comes in the Champions Box Set (red,white,and yellow) as well as the classic First Appearance Angel that is coming soon in Series 31!
  4. Hells yes!!! The black-suit Namor should be cool too (no frontal-pic.s yet. Super-Villain Team-Up FTW!!). I wouldn't fret too much about Thor; these are after all "comic-packs". You just know that Hasbro will release a better version later. I'm really psyched about the return of Indiana Jones figures (via video game 2-packs). Just based on the few leaked previews, 2010 is going to be a wallet-buster for me.
  5. Previews will also be offering an exclusive "Damaged Mk VII Viper" (w/Starbuck) and a "Scar" Cylon Raider (w/Cylon) Mini-flyers. Both are due in November.
  6. The only real good that could come from this is another shot at those "lost" Raiders figures and hopefully a strategically-planned expansion of figures from the first three films. Sounds like they might be going for a "Harrison Ford becomes Sean Connery while Shia attempts to become the new Harrison". While I get their whole "circle-of-life" angle, the idea of anyone attempting to fill Ford's fedora makes me more than a little uneasy. I suppose it could be pulled-off but it would require one Hell of a script. Regardless, there will only be one Indy for me, and he will forever be Harrison Ford
  7. BTW, TRU has also posted Series 2 as well as Mini-Vehicle Col. Viper and Raider on their site. I'm thrilled that these previously cancelled waves (and ships!) have finally found a home at TRU as exclusives. I will be broke as Hell amassing an armada of Vipers and Raiders! @jump# Thank-You DST and TRU for making this happen!
  8. TRU has started putting these out. I saw the 6" figures and the 3.75" playsets (no fig.s though) yesterday, but didn't get any. They looked decent, but I'm not sure if I want to collect this line yet. BTW, the Bridge playset was $29.99, Transporter $22.99. I have read posts of other people finding all of these (3.75" too) at other TRUs, so start looking if you're interested.
  9. I bought the 3.75" T-R.I.P.($6.99) and Hunter Killer w/T 700($22.99) today at TRU to test-out the line to see if I really wanted to start army-building these. The humans didn't look as bad as I had imagined, but I'm just concentrating on endoskeletons to terrorize my Joes. No pic.s at the moment, but here's my thoughts on T-RIP (haven't opened the HK yet): For $7.99 I expect a bit better than this. These seem a bit like ChapMei with improved articulation (no offense to CM, as they make some interesting toys for bargain prices). Sculpt: Actually pretty decent (compared to past offerings) for
  10. I'd just like to personally Thank-You Sparks for posting these pic.s!! I'm not a big Joe collector (casually pick-up what I like), but I had been thinking about this set for a MU Doom's (or Zemo, etc.,etc.) Castle but figured it would be disappointing (as most playsets ultimately are for me), even at $29.99 (TRU)...I have never been so happy to be wrong! Regardless of what you collect, if you are a fan of 1:18 scale then do yourself a favor and do not pass this amazing playset up. It is so thoughtfully layed-out/designed, sturdy, and despite it's generous size (height and length) it is relativ
  11. Sweet figure, but the head is too smooth for my taste. Anyone else think that this body will be re-used as Red Skull in the MU line? If not, I surely will be!
  12. Well Canada got them in in January, but they are scheduled for release in March so it isn't that big a stretch to be finding them now in mid February. I do realize what you are saying. My point is that, if Hasbro is going to put these out early ( in some stores, like Toy's R Us ) then put them out already. Don't play some stupid game by only putting a few out here or there. Let us all have a crack at the new figures. I know that these new figures, more than likely will be released in abundance come March but if you are going to send them out and put them out on the shelves early then at le
  13. Hmmm, for money? The line in that scale has pretty much run it's course, though I'm certain that there will be a few more additions in the near-future. As far as Hasbro, shifting attention to the 1:18 scale is probably one of the smartest things they've done thus far with the license (especially considering the economic climate) and I think many of you will be amazed (though mostly disgruntled) at how well these will do.
  14. I did (best 'mate line ever), until Mr. Brewer determined that they weren't making enough money and prematurely pulled the plug. Meanwhile, Marvel 'mates are up to Series 25 and going strong. Damn shame.
  15. We shall. And while you're saving money,perhaps you can save your breath as well; all of this "Puni-verse" bashing is ridiculous. *BTW, Deadpool is being released in the first series of Wolverine:Origins (3.75"), and he looks fantastic!
