  1. Updated above! Boff123, the Hulk arm should go out in the mail today, thanks!
  2. I have: Despero R-leg from Wonder-Woman Despero R-leg from Artemis Despero L-leg from Ares Despero R-arm from Cyborg Unmasked Deathstroke sealed DCUC2 Firestorm sealed Red Hulk R-arm from Wolverine I need: Foom L-arm/wing from End Hulk Foom upper-torso from Skaar son of Hulk Foom L-leg (from grey/green Hulk?) Foom R-leg (from Absorbing Man?) Also looking for any Metallo series figs. Would trade 1-for-1 UM Deathstroke or Firestorm. PM me here. I've had plenty of good deals with Lartdog, SPC Airborne, General Hawk, mikericem...
  3. Wasn't the Manitou Raven guy in the JLA:Obsidian Age storyline supposed to be Apache Chief? Also, don't forget that beginning with the Atom Smasher series 7 (which includes Flash, Barda, etc.) Mattel will begin shipping the wacky case-packs to retailers, with half of one series and half of another series, along with "All-Star" rereleases of the heavey-hitter Bats/Supes/Wondy/GL/Firestorm characters - which include bases instead of C&C parts (this is being done at the behest of Mattel's "retail partners" in order to "keep a fresh variety of product on the shelves" and increase foot traffic in the toy aisle.) That's all code for "If I thought it was hard to complete a C&C now, wait till 2009!" Keeping in mind the shelf-constancy that the "retail partners" want to establish for the "All Star" type characters, there's really no need to continue to include odd variations of the big 7 in the C&C series' just to keep them on the shelves - these are the ones that WalMart/Target/Mattel are counting on selling to soccer-moms, grandparents, and kiddies with an extra $12(?) So, it's not really a surprise that there's no Supes/Bats in wave 8, since they're going to be in the cases in 2009 anyway
  4. I just picked this up yesterday. Anyone else seen one of these? All I'd seen so far were "bearded" versions. The stamp was the same on the back of both boxes. I'll double-check to be sure it is still factory sealed when I get home. It seems a little too coincidental to be a paint error, since Crankcase originally only had the 'stache.
  5. "Ahhhhhhhhh, my liver!!!!!"
  6. FFF BAF Series 1 (revealed at Toy Fair): 1. Wendigo 2. Absorbing Man 3. FA She-Hulk 4. Hulk: The End Figures yet to be confirmed for FFF BAF Series 2: -Valkyrie -Doc Samson -Bi-Beast -Red King -Skaar: Son of Hulk -King Hulk -McGuinness Hulk -McFarlane Grey Hulk
  7. My money is on the re-branding -if you will- of the Marvel Heroes toy lines. Likely the reason we haven't heard much of anything about ML is because Hasbro is holding-out for NYCC. We have yet to see their take on 4" Marvel figures. We know they've got 6" 2-packs planned, as well as the Foom series of Hulk figures. I expect Hasbro to make 4" Marvel figs their bread n butter (see Star Wars/GI Joe/Indy/Hulk Movie lines), while throwing the 6" fans a bone with the Legends 2-packs. I thought it was confirmed that Icons would be giving way to the Unleashed! figures... I think it would be lovely to have a Jesse Falcon-fixed Nemesis wave. I was vomiting in my mouth a little about the horrid articulation for Beast and Tigra - two of Marvel's most nimble. Speaking of Jesse Falcon, did anyone else notice the similarity between the perforated bubble on the IM movie figs and the perfs on the LCBH figures' packaging?
  8. Or, Hasbro could do a "build a weapon" for GI Joe and include a piece of the MASS device in each of 5 cartoon mini-series DVD packs - "collect them all to build your very own MASS device." Oh, wait...
  9. Hah! I'd like to see them available the same way the Fridge and Sgt. Slaughter v1 were done. Collect (or 5?) tickets, send reg. form with S/H, boom! I think having to drop $60 on comic packs just to get Doc is a bit extreme.
  10. EDIT: I added a poll question about "how" folks want to see a Steel Brigade figure released. Somehow, though, it wiped out the 5 votes that had already been cast. SHENANIGANS!
  11. I started this poll to gauge interest for the inclusion of the Steel Brigade in the 25th anniversary line of Joes. I wanted to first, gauge collector interest in the character and second, get a feel for how folks think the figure should be released. So, since everyone on the internet has at least 7 opinions, make two of yours heard here and now!
  12. Why not Shockwave? Were folks satisfied enough with his Alternator incarnation that they wouldn't be interested in a G1 redux? I would think a space-aged laser-gun with lights and sounds that transforms into an evil robot would be a no-brainer for Hasbro.
  13. Upon closer inspection, I will concede to my error. The lettering is clearly stenciled on as part of the design, as opposed to the hand-scribbled notations common on many pre-production pieces. Thanks for setting me straight, gents.
