    That new Darth Vader and the Alec Guinness Obi-Wan are beyond cool.

    I was wondering where her hands were. I like it.

    The Vader and Obi-Wan Hot Toys look absolutely gorgeous. If it's not ridiculously expensive, the Vader might be my very first Hot Toy.

    Re: "Jurassic World" toys...haven't seen anything on these yet. I'm sure there will be though. Probably will see something in the next couple of months.


    I bought Masters of the Universe Classics She-Ra from Big Bad today! I now have He-Man and She-Ra!


    Also apologies if this was posted in the thread earlier...but Scott Neitlich has been hired by JAKK's Pacific.

    The rest of the new Star Wars releases look amazing, too (check out that Tauntaun and the detail on both Han and Luke), but Vader and Obi-Wan are my favorites.

    Yep. He's all into the giant scale so he can have it for all I care.

    Day 20- You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch, er, Loki. Loki is trying to steal the Shelf Avengers' Christmas tree! Loki, you little shit. And poor mini Strider is his unwilling accomplice.

    He waited until Tony was drinking and the others had gone before taking the tree. Typical.

    I want the Vader & Obi Wan ones pretty badly. Just trying to figure out how to convince my wife.

    This where the warmth and joy of the Christmas season - and lots of pitiful spousal begging and blackmail - come into play.

    She-RA RA RA! I knew there was a reason why I hate cheerleaders.

    I didn't like Scott because he stopped answering questions. Problem was, he deliberately put himself out there as the answer guy, so he never really had an excuse for stopping. He wasn't doing his job anymore so time to move on. Unfortunately, and as predicted, his departure has not helped Mattel.

    CCC.

    I kept seeing that Scott was a douche behind the scenes with the line. There's actually been a ton of drama involving the MOTU fandom during his tenure with Mattel. Anyway this can only be seen as a good thing IMO.

    Apparently there's still no word on who his successor is yet.

    Day 21- Loki was just kidding about stealing the tree. He's giving the Avengers and X-Men a sleigh ride!

    Can't believe it's almost Christmas, and I've managed to do every day in December. :lol:

    Went by Wal-Mart, and I knew I was right to get the GotG figures that I did first.

    Only ones left on the shelf are Star Lord & Iron Man.

    I'm hoping I can find some 6" Black Series and 3.75" Rebels figures I've been wanting before Christmas, but the way my area stores tend to stock and restock product during the week leading up to Christmas (and factoring in last-minute gift hunters) I'm not expecting to find anything, but I have to go shopping anyways so I'll take a look.
