    Heh. Everyone on that cover has been in a superhero movie.

    Short update after last time's epicness. I guess I just find one of these groups a bit more fun than the other:

    I was aiming to wrap this up at 100 panels, but I'm at 76 already. I'm going to overshoot my goal by a considerable margin. Oh well.

    Got my Darth Plagueis earlier today. Well worth the wait, and he cost me just $16 including shipping and handling. That's cheaper than most of the Plagueis figures out there, including loose copies that may or may not have all their accessories.

    He looks great. A Muun might not be the most ideal species for a diabolical Sith Lord much less the Master who taught the future Emperor most of what he knows, but he's sufficiently alien and exotic enough to give off an eerie vibe. You could believe that an alien like this guy could be up to no good.

    Nice! She must be proud of 'em. They certainly don't skimp on details.

    As per OdoWan's latest installment: :)

    Walter White deserves his own action figure comic strip. It would consist of little more than meth cooking references and gruff threats made to other action figures, but you know we'd all enjoy it.

    Nice....are those recent or older, classic Turtles figures? I've never collected any of them and to my eye one Ninja Turtle looks pretty much like another one made years and years ago. Would these happen to be some of the new ones currently being sold in big box stores?

    I'm pretty certain those are the retro classic releases? Awesome none the less.

    Those are from the 2003 series. I don't really like the recent ones too much. They have more articulation, but they're smaller and it looks like they overdid it with the bandages on the feet and arms.

    Those new Turtles sure do sell like hotcakes. While other action figure lines linger on store pegs the Turtles seem to sell out pretty quickly. They might not be everybody's idea of great nor even good but somebody's been snatching up all those things, that's for sure.

    The more I look at the new 6" Bespin Luke Skywalker figure in the Black Series the more I'm looking forward to getting him. Most collectors thought the plain white Stormtrooper would be the runaway star of Wave 3 but the reviews and opinions of the Luke are narrowing the gap between the Stormie and the other new figures in this assortment.

    He might not be a dead ringer for 1980 Mark Hamill but it's plenty close enough. This Luke is a pretty great figure and they nailed his clothing.

    Or it would be more logical to give the matrix to Spock, since Leonard Nimoy voiced Galvatron :)
