  1. I've been in Sandusky, OH the past few days, and I got to check out my very first Meijer store...it's as if Walmart and Target had a baby. (lol) Anyway...I scored the 80th Anniversary Thor there...they're nearly impossible to find at home, so I grabbed one. I'm not usually a fan of Thor's classic look, but they did such an amazing job on this figure, I just had to have one. I love that it seems to be based somewhat on Alex Ross's artwork...it's even on the packaging. It just looks fantastic, and I'd love to have the rest of them, especially Cap.
  2. Another excellent review, bud...I've been thinking about getting a couple of them. I'm intrigued by the animated look of them...
  3. So...if I pre-order these now, will I be charged right away, or just when they're in-stock/shipped?
  4. I bought a husk of a Defiant booster shuttle a couple of weeks ago, but I broke it all to pieces trying to take it apart for cleaning. (lol) I did however find a Version 2 Storm Shadow claw rattling around in the fuselage, along with a 3-3/4" scale blue guitar. I guess Rock & Roll left it behind... (lol)
  5. Aww...that Barbecue pic made me smile, Phanstar...he was always a favorite of mine for some reason...he wasn't decked-out in camouflage, and he didn't have the coolest weapons...and dang if, you couldn't remove his helmet (lol), but he was always a favorite nevertheless. It was official years later, when I saw him in an issue of the Marvel Comics series take his axe, jump-up on the canopy of a H.I.S.S. tank, and bury his axe in it, stopping it in its tracks, literally. (lol) It was so very bad-@$$. No, he's not Snake Eyes, but he's very cool in his own right and very underrated in my opinion...
  6. Awesome...yeah, I sold my childhood collection years ago, and sadly it wasn't in all that bad of shape, but back then I thought so, thinking I could just replace them later with "mint" examples...I had a Version 1 Stalker ('83) and a Version 1 Beachhead, both mint complete, but I sold them because their o-rings were broken...this was back in the day before I realized you could just simply buy new replacement o-rings, and for some reason it never occurred to me to simply swap-out o-rings from other figures to begin with...so I sold them. (sigh)
  7. Ahh...this brings back memories...I won the give-away years ago, back when it was $200.00, but I was away at my mother's at the time, and she didn't have internet back then, so unfortunately I didn't respond in a timely manner. Therefore they picked someone else to win...I only found out after I got back home a day or so later. That one hurt pretty bad, and I never quite got over it... (lol)
  8. That's awesome, Phanstar...good for you, bud!! That thing was on the top of my wishlist for years...never did get one, though. (Que the violin music...) (lol)
  9. Sooo...what ever happened to their Star Trek line?? I was so excited, and ever since Kirk and Picard dropped, nothing...
  10. Congrats, Mako! I walked into a Gamestop awhile ago and snagged a Marvel Legends Captain America vs. Crossbones two-pack on clearance for twenty bucks...it was sitting in the clearance section with a $40.00 price tag on it, but the guy behind the counter said everything on clearance was half-off the yellow clearance sticker price...which was odd because that's what I thought the regular price was, but anyway. I was thrilled to say the least... I also scored a "bomber-jacket" Captain Marvel, regular Captain Marvel, and Nick Fury, also at Walmart. These figures seem to get better and better with every wave...

    Speaking of older Multiverse figures at Walmart, I stopped by one of my local stores, and they had theirs on clearance for three bucks apiece!! I was so glad I waited on getting these. A couple of years ago, my neighborhood Walmart marked their New 52 Doomsday wave down to five bucks each, but I still passed, even though I had gotten a chance to check out the DKR Armored Batman in-hand and loved it. I was actually surprised at how nice this figure turned out to be in person, after dismissing it for sporting what seemed to be a very simplified and stylized sculpt, even though I always loved the Frank-Miller-artwork-style it's based on. And I really wanted to finish building the New 52 Doomsday BAF, of course...I'm just a sucker for anything Doomsday-related. Well, I hum-halled around and let them all sell out, but I would continue to see them at all the other local Walmarts for nearly-regular price...I guess at almost twenty-bucks a pop, other stuff always took precedence. And it just seemed like most of this wave peg-warmed so hard around here...I don't know if this was a common occurrence in other parts of the country, but it just seemed like this particular wave hung around for years... Well anyway...I completed the set, and I finally have all the parts to build Doomsday for approximately what one figure in this wave originally cost. Now if I can just find the other BAF parts hiding somewhere in the closet... (lol)
  12. Aww, man...I jumped the gun last night and bought one on eBay for $24.94. I thought that was a pretty good deal, but I would have loved to find one at Ross for even cheaper... Thanks for letting me know, though, Belmont!
  13. Thank you! Yes, it looks awesome in hand...and it weighs a ton. I’d love to get my hands on the Iron Man and Thor from this line, so I can at least round-out a core Avengers mini-collection...
  14. I found the Marvel Legends 12-inch Hulk at Ross the other night for $14.99. I almost choked...
