  1. I got my Shipp Flash and he is awesome! The sculpt, articulation, and paint are all spot on. It's a really, really good looking piece, the best DC figure I've seen in a long time. The only down side is when you remember all the articulation this guy has comes standard on a Hasbro figure for $5 less ($8 if you're like me and got him at Gamestop). Otherwise, this figure gets an "A". And I would check Gamestop if you really want this. My stores are fully stocked with 3 each of him and Batman.

    SP//dr wave--I cherry picked. I ordered Cloak, Dagger, and Electra and they all came last week. All 3 are winners! I personally have no need to replace my Toybiz Doc Ock so that was a pass, although that figure does look very good. The other figures from the wave, including the BAF, are easy passes. X-Men wave--Ordered the full case, can't wait to get it. I'll unload the Magneto immediately, otherwise I want them all. Also, there's going to be a variant Psylocke with purple hair and a more metallic blue outfit. I hope I get that one in my case. Deadpool wave 2 (Sauron wave)--Just went up for preorder on dorksidetoys.com last night. I got a loose Bishop, X-23 Wolverine , and complete Sauron BAF! I love this because it saves me from getting half the wave which I don't want. Venom wave--couldn't care less. MAYBE I'll get Typhoid Marry if I see her discounted. All of the above I got from dorksidetoys.com
  3. I got a tip to check Gamestop for these figures and a guy on another board gave me the SKU for Shipp Flash: 166598 Sure enough, on my first try, I hit! I called the store and they are holding one for me!
  4. I told myself I didn't need this movie to happen, but as it's getting closer I'm anticipating Solo more and more. Maybe I just want the bad taste of Last Jedi washed away. I hope all the negativity I'm hearing about it is just a lot of internet bunk.

      I don't know. I was actually pretty pumped about Solo since the first trailer, but the more I see about it, the more I think: "A heist picture? Is this REALLY where we want Star Wars to go?"

    Personally I prefer more realistic guns but I'm not panicking like some people over Hasbro giving these space guns to some of their figures. They've given realistic guns to plenty of figure including the rents Netflix Punisher. I just wish Domino's space guns were at least grey. Purple reminds me too much of 90s GI Joes.
  6. Will I ever be able to watch Smallville again? This is some of the most twisted stuff in recent memory. Wow.

      I hope they throw ALL the books at that Renier creep. I also hope the poor souls he caught in his sick web get the help they need, including Allison Mack.

    DC Hauls

    Went to my LCS to see which copies of Action 1000 they had and found they had one case of the Clayface wave including Jessica and Two Face. They were marked up $5 each but I pulled the trigger anyway and now have a complete Clayface. This guy in an awesome, massive piece and well worth the hunt (well.....I guess there's nothing TO hunt if they're not available at retail) but it's definitely one to keep on your radar. Not sure if I'll keep Jessica or Two Face yet.....
  8. Don't forget your local library for free dvd rentals. It's the only way to watch a Michael Bay Transformers. Now I get to see if The Last Knight really is the worst ever.

    Marvel Comics Toy Sightings/Hauls

    Before my area got hit with 18 inches of snow today (yes, today, April 14th) I was able to make it to a couple of stores. Got an IW Cap from K-Mart and a Proxima Midnight from Walmart. Cap was always on my radar and I've grown to like this look. It's like seeing a tattered and torn American flag still flying after a battle, that's my take on this look, at least. The beard, the rolled up sleeves, the weathered look, it's working. To help complete this, I gave him the shield from the "battle damaged" Civil War Cap. Having a nice, clean Captain America shield is like working in construction for 40 years then retiring with baby soft hands. I gave his Wakanda shield to my Okoye BAF and she looks good with it.

    I just got Cable too and he is a real treat! As far as waves dedicated to Deadpool, to me it's just a logo on a box that's going to be thrown away and forgotten. I don't care how we get them, we're getting them!

    "DC's Legends of Tomorrow"

    Caught the tail end of an episode last night while baby was fussing. They were in the old west and they somehow conjured up a giant, fuzzy, blue, furby/magui creature to battle some winged demon. It was so absurd........and so awesome. I may have to give this show a look.

    "The Flash" Discussion Thread

    I have not been keeping up with Flash, was watching season 3 on netflix but have stalled out recently, but I had to share this: While I was waiting with my students at the car pick up line at the end of the day, two of them started talking about the Flash. One of my girls was ranting that there are too many speedsters on the show ("Seriously, there are like four speedsters on the show now! I want to know who I can write to to complain, there's too many!") These are 4th graders, ten year olds Now, while I do occasionally talk comics to them, I've never given them my opinions on any of the TV shows, so I know this is coming straight from them and not parroting anything I tell them. I just got a kick out of that.

    The Han Solo Anthology

    I mean....you read all these things saying the lead kid is a bad actor and that they had to bring in an acting coach and what not, and I know I'm not watching the FULL movie, but nothing I'm seeing from him in these trailers is particularly worrisome.

    Hasbro's Black Series 6" Figure Line

    I have been working overtime lately between my regular job and then the last two weekends taking care of a needy family member. I received a small reward today in the form of finding the lone Grand Moff Tarkin at Target! This figure is a gem! I cannot get over the likeness that they captured on this $20 retail figure. I just couldn't stop looking at him. I have a feeling he's going to show up on my top 10 of 2018 when the year comes to a close. On a smaller note, I also picked up Target exclusive old man Luke with base for $15 on sale. This is the right price for this guy. I love the base on him and the TRU Rey because they remind me of the old Toybiz Marvel Legends. But, man, that Tarkin.......!
