    I got my shipping notice for Hot Toys Loki. I'll have him Monday. Prepare for more awesomeness.

    YES!

    This looks like it might be a whole lot of fun. A shame you have to take a road or air trip there and then pay so much to get these, but it's still very cool that it's being offered.

    The Trek idea is great, too!

    ^Wow! Do want!

    I picked up the DCC Simon Baz Green Lantern today. Since who knows if or when Mattel will ever get around to making one, this will do for now. He's a really nice looking figure, even if I wish he had more articulation.

    Here's the reverse of the packaging for the SDCC Boba Fett and Han in Carbonite (6").

    Nice work, KM. He looks cool.

    In other news, here's the Jakks Pacific 31" Darth Vader, due out this month at online dealers such as Entertainment Earth and possibly a major brick-and-mortar retailer near you.

    Want.

    Looks like Superman is standing beside Vader on that shelf :)

    He is. :) Jakks Pacific is also releasing a 31" Superman based on his appearance in Man of Steel.

    Technically it's the largest Vader action figure ever made, though the articulation on something this big and in this accessible a price range is fairly limited.

    Our first Target opened last week...and my best friend and I decided to check it out...the place itself was ho hum...but much to my surprise and delight I found Movie Masters Superman! I'm very happy I found him. It was damned near impossible to get any "The Dark Knight Rises" Movie Masters (aside from Batman himself) last summer so I'm very pleased indeed. Haven't had a chance to open the box yet, I'm just surprised that I was able to find him lol.

    Good job! :techman:

    Mattel really hit it out of the park with these. They're even better than the Dark Knight Rises figures, and I thought those were pretty great.

    The Toys 'R' Us Endor AT-AT finally showed up this weekend at my local store for $129.99. They had stocked just two of them on the shelf and both had been bought by the time I got there, but the guy stocking the aisle said he thinks there might be a few more in the back.

    I think I still have a 30% Off store coupon I can use to grab one of these things. That'll make it just $89.99 or thereabouts.

    I come with glad tidings. Hot Toys Loki has arrived, and here is a thread made free from the lack of his presence:
