  1. So I was at Walmart yesterday and came across a few of the new G.I.Joe figures. I picked them up and when I was at the check out they didn't come up in the computer. So the cashier asked if I knew the price and I said yes and gave her the price. I know this happens quite a bit in our hobby and was just wondering if you give the correct price (as in the price that retailer has posted or if you give a cheaper price to save a couple dollars on your purchase?
  2. Doesn't really matter who writes it due to rewrites and whatever that happens on set. I just hope they can carry the momentum that this last movie had.
  3. Since they aren't going to be out until next spring, I doubt you'll hear much. I think some of them look pretty good and am looking forward to some articulated Batman figures to put near my Joes. I am wondering about how good they'll turn out. Batman and Azreal look pretty good, but I think Bane and Deadshot look a little chunky because of waist design. Personally I don't see why Mattell can't just down size the DCUC figures. The four inch Avatar figures they did for the figures had DCUC type articulation and looked pretty good.
  4. Really lucked out, I haven't ordered any of the Ultimate wave (yet) and at Walmart this morning I scored a Storm Shadow, Data Viper and Ultimate Firefly. They had a few of the older figures and of course they weren't in the computer. Still finding a couple at Retail and Walmart for that fact was nice. One Sept 11 I found a Ultimate SE and Ultimate RB at another Walmart about fifteen miles aways from the other one. That time they showwed up in the computer.
  5. I was out at Walmart today and they already had this on the shelf... Ooops.
  6. It was something that Hasbro had planned on putting out but decided not to because of whatever reason Hasbro has.
  7. While I don't think it's a horrible idea, I don't see the movie making the kind of money in December that it would make in May.
  8. A Guardians wave sounds like a tough sell. I mean, they're just not that well known. Here's hoping Marvel makes with a big marketing push to get things warmed up. It might seem like a tough sale now, but if Hasbro/Marvel sell it at the trade shows and Toyfair it could be a surprise hit. All they have to do is play up the fact that it will tie into the Avengers movies and retailers might just start thinking of the dollars signs that came with the first Avengers movie.
  9. If/When they do, I doubt we'll see it until the end of next year. The reason I give for that is I see them doing four ML "movie" waves next year. Cap comes out at the beginning of April, So we'll probably get his wave in the Feb store resets. Spiderman comes out at the beginning of May, So that will be out around then. Guardians of the Galaxy comes out in August, so around there would work for a Guardians wave. That leaves an X-men wave to come out around the time of the X-men DVD release in or around October. I just feel that they will push Cap, Spidey and Guardians a bit more than the X-men movie since the X_men movie lines have always seemed to get less of a push than others.
  10. More than likely it was offered to mass retail and they passed. However Diamond knew that there is a market for the figures and carrying them as a higher price isn't that big of a deal since they regularly carry figures that cost that amount.
  11. The problem is that they sold well at $8 and $10, but and $15, $20 or $20+ they just sort of sit on the shelf. The Walmart closest to me has a bunch of those Amazing Spiderman figures along with some Avengers IM figures. One near my work has a five or six Ultimate Cap's. I think more people have stopped collecting this line then are collecting at this time, so once people gets the wave and figures they want well the rest just sit and rot. The big thing is this isn't just an "Legends" problems but and action figures in general problem.
  12. In all honesty I can't see any other toyline ever being as extensive as the SW line. I think this could go quite deep, but because of cost I see this being a lot like MotUC. After a few years, when all the major characters are out the fan base will just be kind of done with it except for those extreme fans that need every single character who had any screen time at all
  13. I'm pretty sure we won't see World's Finest as the title or in the title. It just wouldn't have much context for the wider audience. I'm sure it will be and simple Batman/Superman or Batman v Superman.
  14. While I wouldn't say they'd get a pass from me, I think maybe Hasbro has the right idea. These figures (atleast from the pictures) look decent enough for a child to play with. But as an adult collector, the POA that we get from other lines and even other SW figures has spoiled me.
  15. When I first saw that figure I thought it would make a great base for Budo, glad to see someone else thought the same thing. Good work it looks great.
  16. Well Goyer already said they're in Preproduction, so I'm sure they'll cast Batman pretty quickly so they can hit the 2015 target date.
  17. It would take too long to set up Pym as a character and then show him building (developing) Ultron, then have Ultron go bad. Add all that on top of introducing Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch (and whoever else) plus give everyone else their screen time. I think they'll short cut it and use Tony and Jarvis too. It would have been smart for them to introduce Pym in the first Avengers movie and just have a throw away line about how he admired Stark and Jarvis, then in the second one have them show him having developed an AI for SHIELD and then in the third have it go all wonky.
  18. Yeah DCUC was good at giving us those characters that some younger fans had to go and look up, but OMAC and Kamandi were also single characters. I'm sure if they would have done the Forever People it would have been spread out over several waves and people would have been complaining one the first figure was released that it would be (yet(another) team we wouldn't get finished.
  19. Not to be rude, but I think you just answered your own question by not being able to remember Big Bears name. But then I can only name two out of the five.
  20. I would like confirmation that either they have more stuff coming out (even if it's not until next year) or that the line is going away until the next movie (if then).
  21. I think the Slave 1 is the same one from the TRU Clone Wars Battlepack from a couple years ago. Atleast it looks that way from the three person cockpit.
  22. I guess the sets nice and like everyone else I really like the Baroness figure (even if all it is is a new head), but I really don't care to own it.
  23. I liked what Chu did witht this last one enought to see his next effort. I just wonder how this will figure into his plans for the MotU movie.
  24. While it's a nice page there isn't a lot there and I hate when some decided they'll only undate or put new material up when they get X amount of followers or likes.
  25. have liked a lot of these but haven't yet got one. This is pretty tempting and if they did a Bespin Luke I would have to buy it.
