    My LCS just got in their shipment of Wave Three Capullo Series figures. This includes the Zero Year Batman and the aforeposted by @Obi-Wan Jim Gordon. I will be going in on either Friday or Saturday (since they're closed tomorrow and I won't make it tonight) to pick up both along with the Capullo Batgirl (the only version of her first 52'Verse suit that I've wanted to get). Will also be getting the Capullo Catwoman.

    My collection has finally taken off this year...I'm probably going to need another shelf at some point as I'm running out of space. It's amazing how fast this happens!

    "Mommy, why did Billy call my Play-Doh toy 'phallic'?"

    "Uh, we'll talk about that later, honey. Much later."

    When sold at TRU, 21st Century Ultimate Soldier XD did American infantry and paratroopers, and German infantry and paratroopers as well as various tanks, trucks and planes. When the line went to Walmart, they did Battle of the Bulge, Afrika Korpse, marines and Japanese soldiers.

    That company went under, but many of their molds are being used by a company called JSI.

    Also at TRU, BBI Elite Force did an assortment of WWII era American infantry as well as a British paratrooper and a Japanese Zero with pilot.

    At Target, Unimax Bravo Team also did assortments of American and German infantry.

    If anybody did Russians, it slipped by me.

    The Shelf Avengers say Happy New Year! And Hawkeye says, "2014, GTFO."

    I think Tony is passed out up there. He's not doing a good job of holding the banner.

    Funny thing is he probably has as many lines during the infamous diner scene of Chasing Amy as most of the Kevin Smith supporting casts have in an average movie. I actually wouldn't mind a Silent Bob action figure with an ironic "talking" feature that accurately spouts the handful of dialogue he actually speaks in the films.

    Love the Shelf Avengers' New Year's message. :)

    Like a Marcel Marceau talking action figure from Mel Brooks Silent Movie. He just says "No."

    Endorsed by Nancy Reagan, of course....

    I actually did get the Capullo Batgirl too. It's just taken me a while to post a picture because, well, it's taken me this long to get her to stand up. Her sculpted details are fantastic, but the articulation is worthless. It's a real shame considering how great Batman, Nightwing, Talon, and Freeze are. Riddler and Gordon have less articulation, but I don't need them doing dynamic moves. Batgirl on the other hand, really could use more.

    The Capullo Batgirl looks beautiful...not surprised at the standing issues though.

    There's nothing about the pop culture references in that post that I don't like. Well done. :techman:

    If she's having trouble standing, take a picture of Batman or someone carrying her!

    For those who might buy the new 6" Black Series Yoda but either hadn't found or were still on the fence about him....

    HAWKWARD. Clint is faced with the ex-wife (Mockingbird), the work wife (Black Widow), and the friend-girl (Spider-Woman).
