  1. Clam is right again. You just had someone miss the variant Logan just like you did. Scalpers thought the picture thing on the back of the package would work and it didn't. Another give away is the number of one per case figures. It sounds like someone bought a two sets from three chase cases to me.

     

    I seriously doubt that a case came without a Mitch though. Someone either got her out and replaced it or it was a fluke. Its not a running change so I just don't see it happening. Who did the fried say the she-he was replaced by?

  2. Anyone ever notice that these things smell like a skunk sometimes?

    I guess the different paints have different odors but some remind me of a skunk.

     

    McFarlanes toys knock you to the ground too. I've never opened one of them without being tortured with their wretch.

     

    I remember the good ole days when new toys smelled good. Now, well mostly, they just stink.

  3. I found mine in WM. I wouldn't have looked twice but I noticed SE was weird looking. I caved and got the SE Longshot and CC. CC is my new favorite S6. He looks good w/and w/out the helmet.

    The fact that all of his gear can go on him at once is cool to me too.

     

    LS is radical as well. He looks sweet. I know little of his character (maybe that's good) but that gun is bad. The scope long rifle and tripod make him a wicked sniper Joe.

     

    SE w/armor is OK. I like the armor alright, but I like the pain apps less. Too bad I had to pay $15 for that helmet. But its SE and they only make 100 different ones a year.

     

    I won't be buying any more S6 until the Aero Bat now. And that will be a while.

  4. I got this set and was glad to find it. I like the SE and of course the SS. These are the only characters from the first wave that I would want to see repainted. Now if only they would repaint Kamakura and CC and do no others I would be happy. I don't think I want another Duke regardless of the gimmick.

  5. I'm going to miss finding Clone Troopers everyday at retail

     

    Hasbro needs to put Clone Troopers in every assortment this year

     

    I agree with that. The new lines sound great but something needs to be there to getcha everytime. Bring in more clones.

  6. Hello, my name is DS and, and . . . I don't read comics.

     

    There, I said it. I used to read comics but now all of my extra entertainment dough goes to toys, used dvds and video games. I probably have a couple of thousand comics but I would have had no idea who Quark was had it not been for the 90's toy.

     

    Sometimes its cool to flaunt your comic knowledge. When it is at the expense of others however, that's just geeky.

     

    Nice custom by the way. I don't like the face but eveything else is great.

  7. Yeah. I agree with Clam. These things haven't even come out in force yet. I wager high volume Walmarts are the ones getting these in. Other's may have them at the DC or even in stock but no place to put them until after the reset. My WM just set another slew of Spiderman Classics (old ones) and F4 (old ones).

     

    Christmas got stock all screwy. Patience is key. The movie's not even out yet.

  8. I like all of the toys so far. Everytime I think I won't like one and open it I end up falling for it. T. Hawk, Adon and Sakura are the examples that come to mind. My least favorite is Cammy so far.

     

    I don't like most of the repaints though.

     

    As far as characters in the game I don't care for most of the non-SF2 Turbo folks. I would much rather see more classics before the line ends. E Honda and Dahlsim for sure. But Sota has by with these fine figures. I would probably buy any of the them.

  9. I did hear something about an Avengers Quinjet, anyone knows anything about it? Not to get entirely off the subject, I would rather have a BAF of Goliath, or a Legendary Riders series with actual Legendary Riders! I would perfer Goliath, or Giantman, or Yellowjacket, oh wait that is all the same character!

     

    Oh crap are you on to something.

     

    TB, do the Giant Man as a BAF. Make another set, possibly a series with 4 or more variants with chase cases of Goliath. Put his pieces with the other variants and add the extras to the rest of the case. Viola, another 50 bucks out of our pockets. I hope you guys are reading this and pm me if you want to give me a 6 figure salary.

  10. I think they would have worked better with Transformer robot forms too. They could keep the characters like Boba and Obi as pilots of the ships and controlers (ala headmasters) of the bots. Vadertron and Optimus Skywalker.

     

    But imagine if they had lightsaber hilts that transformed into robots. That would rock.

  11. I have the first appearnce set with the beast, iceman, angel and 3 others. Its still in the box but im thinking about ripping it open. Any advice?

     

    Open it. It isn't worth that much, but it is a really cool set. Put them up against the ML 10 Sentinel. That'll fixem.

  12. At TRU I always just take one figure from the series I want and go to the Customer Service center. Or whereever they have a computer, usually in the bike or baby registration section.

     

    At Targets I check the items on the scanner to see if they have anymore then ask the workers if they say they do.

     

    At Walmart, I just ask....sometimes you get lucky...but most of the times nothing.

     

    Couldn't have said it better. At Target I use the red phones away from the toy section. That way it may be a worker who doesn't hate all toy collectors.
