Oh just you wait. I have a feeling you will especially like days six and eight.

Heh....I can't wait.


You guys might want to check your local Target in case you're still interested in acquiring the exclusive Darth Maul Returns Battle Pack but didn't like the full shelf price.

The Holiday clearances have begun.

I have always found the "Darth Maul's Brother" on that package to be rather humorous.

I know.

Maul: "Total Badass and Sith Lord!"
Nightsister: "Creepy Nightmare Fuel and Great Supporting Character!"

Savage: "That other guy!"

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

According to Big Bad Toy Store New 52 Justice League Superman is available to order now, I thought he wasn't going to be available until next month, so this was a pleasant surprise. He should be arriving just before Christmas if I'm lucky

I saw him at my LCS on Wednesday, so he's definitely out.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I'm not totally up to speed on the newer Superman comics, but is the New 52 Superman the one the revamped costume in the upcoming Man of Steel is based upon?

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

^ That'd be correct...although I don't know if we can totally credit the MOS suit being influenced by the New 52 costume since there are differences. To me the MOS suit reminds me more of JJ Abrams "Superman: FlyBy" designs than the New 52 Superman. They both have no trunks on the outside though

This is what the figure looks like. There are a couple variants already, but this specific one is from the 'Justice League' DC Direct (or whatever it's calling it's self now) line. He will complete the New 52 version of the "Trinity" as I already have Batman and Wonder Woman.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I can't wait for OdoWan's next "12 Days" entry. I know it can't involve Sith Lords because this will be Day 3 and --- as we all know ---- only two Sith there are. No more, no less.

Three. Four. Whichever. As long as the pictures are funny and awesome I don't care.

Fine piece of work, good lad.

Belloq versus Wolverine? That won't last long.

No, I don't imagine it will. Things are going to escalate quickly around here. I'm not sure Picard and Treebeard can hold off what is to come.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

It's almost like a feverish dream I had once. Only no dragons or Bajoran women in spaghetti string bikinis.





Don't ask.
