    I saw my very first 6" Jabba the Hutt today at my local TRU, but since my first 6" purchases are intended as boxed display pieces and this particular Jabba had a dented and crushed upper corner of the packaging I had to pass on this copy and wait for the next ones I see. There were no 6" Speeder Bikes and Biker Scouts left.

    My Targets just completed its toy department reset with the brand new, much wider Star Wars section complete with the new Command figurines and toys, Rebels gear and the huge X-Wing Fighters that are just big, solid lumps of plastic with no moving parts except for a removable astromech shell you plug into the droid socket, but no new 6" to be seen and just the same-old, same-old 3.75" figures that were there before the reset. Still, the new displays look pretty cool and it's an exponential improvement over what it looked like before.

    Richard and Tony are disappointed they weren't included in the shot ;)

    I saw a couple of these on Ebay a few days ago, from china. Wasn't sure if they were custom or what.

    Those are some great new pics, guys! OdoWan's dialogue bubbles remind me of his running comic book story and make me wish he'd do another one at some point.

    Also, extra points for Tony Stark mentioning hookers. Given Tony's track record it's probably happened more often but we just didn't see it. ;)

    It's amazing how easily the words of Bender from Futurama fit in the mouth of Tony Stark.

    Now all we need is Iron Man in a scene of the next Avengers screaming: "Now who will make pancakes for Tony Stark just the way he likes them?!?"

    Funny you should mention me doing another action figure comic:

    This one won't be the massive epic that the last one was. Just more episodic fun. I'm trying something different with the backgrounds here. The previous suffered by just having my shelf.

    No idea, but the one I bid on comes from the SDCC set. Didn't want to risk anything from China.

    I can't believe there's never been a Starfox figure before.

    OdoWan: the cherry on top of the Win-flavored icing that is the photos in this thread. :cool:

    Deadpool adventures are always good. Keep 'em coming, OdoWan!

    I won the figure! So next week, I'll have a new addition to my Shelf Avengers. And boy, are the ladies going to love him.

    I can. The one I can't accept not getting done is Banshee to complete the Claremont X-Men. They do Thunderbird who died on his second mission and won't do Banshee? Come on!

    There are a ton of figures I'd like to see. Sersi, Meggan, Pete Wisdom, Crystal, just to name a few.

    Starfox has shipped! I can't wait.

    there was a Marvel Legends Banshee about ten years ago. it was terrible, but hey, it does exist.

    i'd buy Sersi and Crystal ML figures in an instant. i have a lot of fondness for the 'bomber jacket' era of Avengers. thats when i began reading the book month to month.

    i'm really pleased that one of my favorite C/D list characters is getting the ML treatment...Hellcat!

    Apparently the Toys "R" Us-exclusive Vintage Collection X-Wing Fighters are beginning to get marked down from their current price of about $60 to forty bucks, and possibly even lower. If anybody here was waiting for a big sale or markdown to pick up the Kenner-boxed X-Wing (or grab another one) keep an eye on your local TRU shelves. If some of their stores mark down their exclusive products that usually means the others will follow.

    Scale matters. I am only looking for MU, not ML. He is the ONLY Claremont team member still not done.
