  1. We all know hot attics can warp/discolor toys, but what about cold attics? I just moved into a house with an attic, which is where my collection is stored right now. It doesn't get down to freezing or anything up there, but at times you can kind of see your breath. Once spring hits I was going to move stuff to my basement while I set up my toy room, but should I start moving them now? They've only been up there a few months so far

  2. I really like this line. im not gonna be buying nearly all of them, since theres alot of redos (superman, batman, plastic man) but theres alot im very interested in (creeper! aquaman, maybe blue devil) so ill pick and choose. but over all this looks like it could be a very good line, and a way to get alot of obscure characters out there

  3. Oh, I forgot to do my 3 best and worst

     

    Best DC: Batman Begins, Dark Knight, Watchmen

     

    Best Marvel: X2, Iron Man, Punisher '04

     

    Worst DC: catwoman, Batman & Robin, Steel

     

    Worst Marvel: Hulk, Spidey 2 & 3. Maaaaaybe the first F4. thats interchangeable with either Spidey sequel

  4. I felt compelled to respond to this since I realized the other day I've seen just about every movie from both companies (except blade trinity, but I'll be watching that in the next few days)

     

     

    Marvel

     

    The Punisher (1989) good 80's action movie. too generic for the punisher (especially the lack of skull)

    Blade (1998) surprisingly good movie, especially for arguably the first of the comic movies of the past decade

    X-Men (2000) solid start. alot of flaws, but still an enjoyable movie

    Blade II (2002) havent seen it for a while. i remember it being a solid followup tho

    Spider-Man (2002) hated it the first time i saw it, love it more everytime i watch it. currently one of my favorites

    Daredevil (2003) decent movie, too many little (important) things were changed from the comic. i still have to see the directors cut

    X2: X-Men United (2003) excellent. really not alot you can say, they did just about everything right

    Hulk (2003) terrible. one of the most boring movies ive ever seen

    The Punisher (2004) good movie, stuff cahnged from the comics, but still an enjoyable movie

    Spider-Man 2 (2004) terrible. i hate this movie the more i watch it, and i hate it even more when people say its the best superhero movie ever (which was the consensus up until about a year ago)

    Blade: Trinity (2004) havent seen it yet, I'll be watching it in a few days

    Elektra (2005) eh. boring. really no point to it. but i love elektra, and jennifer garner haha. so it gets some points there

    Fantastic Four (2005) way too campy, Thing and Torch are the only 2 good casting choices. felt like a tv movie overall.

    X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) seemed rushed. angel should have become an official xman. beast was cool. i didnt like professor x dying and coming back as some soulless middle aged guy or whatever

    Ghost Rider (2007) the directors cut is actually kind of boring. but overall its a decent movie. Ghostrider comics arent Shakespear, so they did a good enough job.

    Spider-Man 3 (2007) slightly worse than Spidey 2. mainly because of the Emo/Dance scenes. and you could time Venoms onscreen appearance with a stop watch.

    Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) Silver surfer was good, everything else really wasn't. especially the power trading.

    Iron Man (2008) Really did everything right. perfect casting, good enough origin story, followed the comics almost perfectly. almost no complaints with it

    The Incredible Hulk (2008) much better than the first, and a pretty good/fun movie on its own. loved the references to the original show

    Punisher: War Zone (2008) weird. kinda cartoony, but super violent at the same time. I love the punisher, so I liked it, but I just thought it was weird.

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) I'll be seeing this one in the next few days as well.

     

     

    DC Comics

     

    Batman (1966) good continuation of the show. since thats not on dvd, the movies nice to have around

    Superman (1978)sure its dated, but its still a great movie. all the characters are there and done right

    Superman II (1980) the love story could go, but Zod and the gang more than made up for that

    Swamp Thing (1982) good corny movie

    Superman III (1983) eh, pretty boring. shouldve been Braniac

    Supergirl (1984) watched part of it a looong time ago. not terrific. my dad only has the 2+ hour directors cut, so I'm still trying to talk myself into watching it

    Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987) i saw it when i was little and didnt like it. I might be able to appreciate it more now

    The Return of Swamp Thing (1989) not great. the opening credits are the best part, so tahts not saying much for the movie

    Batman (1989) great movie. joker dying wasnt ideal, but all in all very good.

    Batman Returns (1992) I might like it better than the first one. possibly my favorite of the original 4 movies. not a huge penguin fan, but I liked this version of him

    Batman Forever (1995) robin was too old, but I liked him. jim carrey was ok as riddler, tommy lee jones wasnt. val kilmer was bland. overall the movies like half good

    Steel (1997) saw this about 10 years ago. I just remember it sucking

    Batman & Robin (1997) george clooney was a good bruce wayne, and bane looked cool. those are about the only 2 good things in the whole movie

    Catwoman (2004) terrible. boring, cliche, completly different from the source material

    Constantine (2005) good reimagining. I still think Keanu would have been a perfect Sandman. I'm looking forward to the sequel. oh! the V-Dub guy as Satan was perfect

    Batman Begins (2005) Another almost perfect movie. liam neeson was a very good Ra's. and I liked that the movie didnt rely on big name villains

    Superman Returns (2006) a basic remake of the first movie. nothin really new. the movies good up until he flies away from saving the plan. after that you can basically quit watching. oh yeah, Superson was terrible. So he erases Lois' memory in the second movie, then leaves Earth for 5(?) years, so Superman's a date rapist and a dead beat dad I guess.

    V for Vendetta (2006) One of my favorite comic movies. actually better than the book. the changes actually helped it.

    The Dark Knight (2008) very good, but the editing was weird. it seemed like alot of scenes were cut out. kinda of blown out of proportion as 'teh best movie evarrr!!!111', but for making a 'realistic' superhero movie, it works.

    The Spirit (2008) weird, quirky, but oddly enjoyable. Sammy L basically makes the movie worth seeing. especially the Nazi scene.

    Watchmen (2009) Absolutly loved it, but dissapointed at the same time. It might have been too accurate. there were almost no surprises while watching it. coulda gone without Dr. M's blue.... regions, but still a great movie. it'll definitly be helped by the directors cut

  5. honestly, i havent seen a single DCUC figure past wave 1, so my votes obviously for DCD, which i have no trouble getting

    someone earlier mentioned the price difference that DCUC's are 10, while DCD is 15. at any comic/toy show, dcd figures can be had for 10-12 for brand new ones, plus theres normally no tax. while at target dcuc is 11, and walmart has em for 12-something, plus tax, so to me, the price is the exact same. but dcuc figures usually look awesome as a prototype, but kinda cheap looking as the actual figure, especially the different greens on Hal's costume.

    surprisingly, ive gotten into the infinite heroes. i have Guy so far, and im looking for the flash 3 pack. from there im basically gonna collect anything JLA related, and some secondary characters i like. plus they take up less room :P

    While dcd does have its problems, theyve also made some excellent figures, like kilowog, booster gold, and a cyborg superman thats worlds better than the mattel one

  6. as much as i love robin, he wouldn't fit in the current batman movies

    But! the guy from Heroes, Milo Ventitmsmsisditgla is super anxious to play Nightwing, and I think that could work. He'd have to be more of a partner than a sidekick, and they'd obviously have to mess with the origin since theyre skipping past like 15 years of Robin-ness, but I'm sure they could figure out a cool way to do it, just like they did with the Joker's new 'origin'

  7. haha the title of this post scared me! luckily i have 5 of the 6 comic pack stickers i need, im just waiting for the next set of comic packs to come out

     

    unleeesssss someone wants to send me an extra sticker of course ;)

  8. wow, i didnt know there was a variant to the WM. i got the black bellied on off ebay for 10 bucks shipped, so im happy, plus tahts the one i wanted. surprisingly, i have seen 1 of the war machines at wal-mart, and ive been to 3 or 4 in the past 2 weeks.

    other than WM, i have the regular old painted iron man, and i love both figures. once i see a mark 1 at a walmart, ill pick him up too

  9. has anyone found any new figures? what wave are we even on? i last got the wave with the CG, then i saw 1 lone rock and roll, but didnt pick him up :( is there anything out past that? im caught up on the comic packs

    but yeah, the prices suck now. star wars figures were already too expensive, and now these are more? i pretty much quit SW, and it looks like im quiting joe, besides the comic packs. ill probly grab the BAT, Viper, and there were like 1 or 2 others i wanted, but not for 7 bucks each. especially like someone mentioned, 2 years ago the 2 packs were 7-8 bucks

  10. Glad to see I'm not the only one that hasn't found wave 2 yet :P

    Right now I'm in school, so I have the option of visiting an addition 3 targets and 2 TRU's, so if I don't find em in the next 2 weeks, I'll probly order them from cornterstore. Oooor, maybe TRU.com once they put em up, since I have a $25 gift card @firedevil@

  11. 10 bucks says this is a Shadow Crimson Guard pack, just like how they did the Nightwatch one. Toyfare already had the black CG in the magazine a few weeks ago

     

    I actually think a nod to that one convention exclusive would be cool, and have a crimson baroness, twins, and 2 pre-paints of the viper

  12. i saw the cell so long ago, but now i totally forget it haha.

    I just started watching the Saw movies (i just have to watche dthe 4th one now), and im diggin them alot more than i thought it would. each one has a twist at the end i really didnt see comin. nothing too major like the 6th sense, but still unexpected

  13. haha yeah, havent found anything for like 2 months since i got the crimson guard/gold destro wave (is that the newest one out?), then i finally found that jetpack-gasmask trooper today at 5.44 :P granted, its only like 50 cents, but i guess its the fact that the shelves are bare for 8 weeks, then when i see something i want, its 2 days after they raised the price.

     

    WM did this with star wars a few months ago. the figures were ~6.64, and they had like waves 4 thru 28 come out in like 3 weeks, then once they all dissapeared, they lowered the prices to 5.88, then more new figures hit, and the price was back up to 6.64. haha glad i quit working there. did i say quit? more like went on 'leave' so i could still use my discount card ;)
