    Sometimes it easier for me to order something online. I have gone to stores to find a lot of the Marvel stuff that aren't in the best quality when it comes to the carded figures. When I bought the Winter Soldier Disney exclusive I had to get it online because the Disney store nearest to me when out of business a few years ago. You're right, you never know what condition it gonna be in when you order it online. You're taking a risk and sometimes the figures don't always look what they show online. Some people call it a hobby, but for me I call it my sickness.

    Yeah, that best describes what we do. "Sickness." Most of can't argue with that. :lol:

    Not to many like him, but I'm waiting to get Northstar from Marvel Universe wave 2 2015. I just might get sand color Sandman if I see him in stores or online.

    This will end well, I'm sure of it.

    Nintendo is now in the business of creating plastic crack, and I must have them all.

    OdoWan it was revealed I believe at NYCC that DC Collectibles is making all versions of the characters. They will come out on a rotating basis. Eventually we are supposed to get "Batman: The Animated Series" and "Justice League" versions. I'm hoping they will do "Batman Beyond" eventually if these do well.

    Yeah, I've seen the mockup of the TAS style Batman coming in wave 4. I get not wanting to repeat characters right out of the gate. It's just going to be a little frustrating for a while having some characters in one style and some in another. I think this line will have some legs, though, and we'll eventually get most if not all important characters in both styles. Batman: The Animated Series nostalgia is strong, and that will translate to sales.

    That's been a widespread feeling when it comes to Hasbro and their Star Wars license. They make turds and complete stinkbombs from time to time, but even then you often feel compelled to collect them all.

    I passed on a Pulp Fiction 'Travolta' figure today because of a bad paint app on the hand.

    How is it that Hasbro can make every Star Wars character into a figure of different variants, but yet when it comes to Marvel they don't? I would love to see Teddy, Billy (from Young Avengers) Anole, (X-Men) Shatterstar and Rictor (Peter David's X-Factor) in stores on the peg waiting to get bought. Sure these characters maybe gay I would buy them in a heartbeat. If they are made right in their image and come with accessories I'm sure they would sell.

    Gawd I hate bad jobs on action figures too. I might be returning Agent Venom for the same reason.

    Day 2 of the Advent Calendar! Black Knight has a Santa hat for Mini Strider. I don't think he likes it, Dane!

    I don't know if OdoWan has either the free time or the stamina to make and post another Twelve Days of Christmas countdown featuring his action figures, but if he does it would probably be just as much fun and as epic as last year's. :)

    Another Twelve Days is off the table. I'm not ruling out some holiday themed action figure fun, though. It's just going to be something different this year.

    Ah! Inspiration has struck me, and I'm writing something special for you guys now. It's not going to be the massive cluster that the 12 Days was, but it's possibly even more ambitious. You'll all see soon enough.
