    I'm probably going to let Clint's eggs "hatch" earlier than planned (unless Loki kidnaps them again!). I have other stuff planned for Easter. Stay tuned!

    Prepare to drop your pants, eddie! I've just ordered a few Halo figurines and they'll blow your mind:

    You know, at first I was trying to figure out why the "figure" second from the right seemed to be missing parts. Then I realized it's a jet pack. :lol:

    :)

    Yeah, that's Commander Cody's jetpack with two pivoting cannons. It's actually an older accessory that was first used on another Clone commander a couple of years ago and recycled with new orange paint apps for the 2012 and 2013 Cody figures.

    Looks like my LCS got in another shipment of the latest Arkham City wave, so I was able to pick up Talia Al Ghul:

    Well....something went really wrong with that headsculpt. The eyes are just huge, making her look like some weird cartoon. It doesn't look quite as bad in person as in the picture, but is still really noticeable. Still, I believe this is the only action figure of Talia that has ever been made. You would think that with her role in the comics for so long, and her recent prominence in The Dark Knight Rises, that we would be getting more figures of her.

    They almost look like cat eyes from this particular picture. I think one could say that about a lot of characters in different franchises, and Skids is sort of a running joke in the Transformers fandom because no one seems to remember he exists. :D He had a very distinctive form and was part of the second series released, and yet virtually everyone else got remembered in some way. Not poor Skids.

    Well, looks like I'm about to learn me a whole bunch about Transformers.

    I got out of collecting Transformers eons ago so I have so much catchup learning to do that I don't even want to begin. I just pay attention to what's going on in the Michael Bay movies and base my knowledge on that....I'm so far behind on all the post-'80s mythology that it's ridiculous.

    Yeah, the TF wiki is pretty snarky and often has character pages built on tropes related to that character. Check out Wheelie's page. :lol: But it's pretty funny in a lot of respects, and they like poking fun at the franchise.

    I always thought it would be cool if they made an Arcee figure based on her original design. Yeah, the pink one.

    As a kid I always kind of liked her anyway, and admired the fact that they made her a capable warrior for the most part but they weren't afraid to show that she was weaker than all then other characters (one episode in particular she couldn't even lift Galavtron's gun.) But she had a cool personality.

    You linked to the outdated wiki? Tsk tsk.

    Everyone, go head over here for the more up-to-date version with the larger user base and more articles. (They used to be one and the same, but split apart couple of years ago. Teletraan 1/Wikia is largely abandoned, though a few people still update it. Read about the split here.)

    OdoWan...I was disappointed with Stana errrr...I mean Arkham City Talia's head sculpt as well. Mine has paint bleed into her forehead which kind of sucks. It also took me damn near forever to get to stand properly on her heels. I still like her though...I'm still disappointed we didn't get a movie masters Miranda Tate figure with robe :) :(

    ^This. Plus, the tfwiki seems to work a bit better and isn't bogged down with ads or wikia's formatting requirements.

    Personally, I love what they did with Animated Wreck-Gar's page! :lol:

    Yeah, my figure has ridiculous balance issues, too. Honestly, I might have passed completely on her if it weren't for the fact that this is the only Talia ever made, or likely to be made in the near future.
