    I am loving the Movie Masters MOS pics that were posted in the "Superman" film thread. The Superman figure looks ten times better than "The Dark Knight Rises" Batman which I ultimately passed on even though I was going to originally pick it up. Zod looks great even though he doesn't have his goatee...so does Jor-El.

    Yeah, I'm impressed. I just hope that they look that good when they make it to production.

    I just took a look at the Superman pics you guys mentioned. Very nice. Superman figures and figurines often have a sketchy, uneven track record but those look pretty sweet.

    Yeah I'm guessing the photos we saw are of prototypes? Especially since Zod looks like he is without his cape or overcoat get up we saw in the teaser trailer.

    Here's a hi-res closeup of the "Black Series" X-Wing Luke due out this fall.

    ^ I love the swamp thing carrying the poor girl. Certainly an iconic pose there

    Swamp Thing? You mean Creature From the Black Lagoon.

    Here's a much better, hi-res photo of the brand new 12" Clone Trooper, this one in bilingual Canadian packaging. The U.S. packaging is largely the same.

    This is only a Photoshopped mockup of what the 6" Black Series Artoo will look like, but will probably be very close to the final product due in stores this coming fall.

    If the real thing looks even half this good I might just get two of him.

    Think of the possibilities for larger and more screen-accurate droid tools you can attach to this guy!

    I really hope we do some attachable or pop-out tools for R2. He's gonna be smaller than the rest, so they really should justify the price.

    I think they probably will. Even 3.75" Artoos in recent years have had pop-open panels and assorted tools even though they were very small and screen accuracy could be hard to achieve. The Vintage Collection (VC25) Artoo with the Sail Barge glasses and gear was exceptional for its scale and really brought a lot to the table....I hope a larger 6" droid will come with even more options for the $19.99 plus tax we'd be spending to get him.

    There's nothing about that post I don't like.

    Of course, it will probably be close to $300 like their Doctor Who figures. :(

    So Hasbro's tradition of a collector line and a kids line will continue. Only this time, it sounds like the kids line will be total garbage, and completely without the odd gem for collectors.
