  1. I am just thrilled this is another big middle finger to all the drama queens who hate the movie so much...
  2. With the exception of stores who went berzerk on Wave 1, I have to tell ya I do not see these toys being stagnant. In this particular area I am seeing Star Wars and GI Joe doing pretty well, with the TF and Marvel lines kind of lingering. On a side note, I was happy to finally find Dr. Lewis, Charbroil, Adder, etc. this past weekend. I have yet to see Arctic Snake Eyes at retail, though!
  3. I'm in for at least a few of those!
  4. I absolutely loved this movie! To all the plot gripes pointed out in this thread- Well, many of you are right. However like others have said I wasn't expecting Casablanca here I was expecting the absurd fun from the cartoon/comic I have loved all these years. As recently as the second trailer that brought out the Sigma 6 suits, I had huge doubts about the movie. Once all the TV ads started popping up featuring other elements my hopes were raised and I was not let down. Honestly, Duke's thugonomics accent was the biggest distraction for me, and even that is a small gripe. I suppose that is the norm for "hip" these days though. Bring on a sequel, please.
  5. Either at midnight tonight or tomorrow. I am bummed about how few places are doing a midnight show
  6. I am pleasantly surprised how well these are selling around here, too
  7. For the folks who already have it, are the DiC cartoons included?
  8. I think they are warming the pegs more than the other lines simply because GI Joe has a stronger ratio of adult to child collectors at this point. Yes, Star Wars has a lot more fans as well, but it is recent enough to still have a lot of kids interested. I think if a new cartoon, or even re-runs of the classic were around, we would see these sell better...
  9. I thought Jarrett's promo was the perfect worked-shoot. It wasn't obviously a fake... you felt like there was at least some truth to what he was saying, regardless if there is or not. I have always enjoyed Kane's speaking and wish they would let him more often. I just can't get into Kurt anymore... he lost me somewhere a few years ago. As for Samoa Joe, I liked him when he first started as a nasty, brutal, unique kind of heel. His face/tweener turn and championship run is a disaster, in my opinion.
  10. ...And he always f's up right before/during a big push... yikes.
  11. Hulk belongs at Wrestlemania 25. Period. Does he have to have a high profile, long match? Absolutely not. Am I a big Hogan fan (anymore)? No. Give him 10 minutes to work the crowd, or squash some monster like Khali in 10 minutes. Something. Anything. He may not be bigger than wrestling, but he sure as hell paved the way for its mainstream success.
  12. I just hope this all leads to HBK with the strap...
  13. Ah, this is a sad story to read. I can't help but think this is more than a little suspicious... I wish Jake well, as he was one of my childhood favorites... but I don't see a good end coming to this story...
  14. I'm glad you made this post, because I was just about to. I just accepted a new position yesterday, so I am going from college-intern to summer-intern and now an actual Analyst position as well. I think I will start with a few small things... maybe a Vader 4" scale by my monitor... and see what kind of reaction it all gets. In my current cubicle here, I have a lot of sports stuff... but that is much more generally accepted everywhere than Fantasy/Sci-Fi/Toys. Despite my position getting better, I feel like the area of the building I am moving to is actually MORE casual than where I am now... I'll post back here in a couple weeks to see if I get any flack....
  15. Minus a few exceptions, the scale in Star Wars post-POTF2 has been pretty good. Like many others have said, try being a collector of wrestling toys... now that brings some absurd scale problems.
  16. Cherry is fat? Geez, she is about 1/3 of the average american girl these days, isn't she? Anyway, I kinda liked her and was surprised on her release. It seemed like a push was coming for her, too.
  17. I never much cared for Burke... but wasn't he in some sort of serious accident not long ago? Is Carlito really getting a new gimmick, or just a refresh of his current? I feel like the fans won't easily accept a totally new idea in his case...
  18. I don't know, but by the replies in this thread it is still close to our hearts... *hint hint*
  19. I guess I'm in the minority, but I am hot for that Flint. Funny thing is, I am not a Flint guy one bit...
  20. Yeah, this has become quite the epidemic. Something that trumps this in patheticness may be when people swap the .99 Hot Wheels out...
  21. I would say in many ways this is HBK's most succesful year post-comeback...
  22. Looks good, may be my first Joe vehicle purchase in a long, long time.
