    I have nowhere else to put this. I found this panel in an 80's comic (Mephisto vs. Avengers) and found it amusing. I thought it would make a great demotivational poster...

    Snow day! Tasha, Clint, and Dane want to go sledding. Jessica wants to make snow spider-angels. But it's too cold to let them go out and play...and Dane would probably lose an arm anyway!

    ETA- Funko is doing a Pop! Black Widow for Age of Ultron after all:

    Maybe there's still hope for Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver!

    Forgot about these, after riding Star Tours we built our own Droids at the Droid Factory in the gift shop. They were having a sale, buy two and get one free. However to get that, you had to get the two packaged in the double packaging.

    So left to right, Orange Droid with Captain Jack Sparrow hat is Aaron's. The Purple Droid is Ian's and the Red Droid is mine. Nothing more satisfying then building your own Droid.

    Build-A-Droid was one of the best concepts Hasbro's had with Star Wars action figures in recent years. Those look great. You guys picked some cool colors and hats and I hope your kids love 'em. :)

    Thanks for posting the link, man. At first I didn't want to say anything for the spoiler-sensitive fans in the thread but it's been almost 4 days since the episode aired so it's pretty much becoming fair game to mention it. I I'm really looking forward to those figures when they're finally released.

    I think Hasbro timed these pics for the day of the airing of the season finale...but yeah I too wanted to wait at least a couple of days before posting them. Finally will be able to get an Ahsoka figure!

    I also ordered the Marvel Infinite Series Spider-Man Classics Spider-Man (with alternate lifted mask head and pizza slice) from Big Bad. Can't wait to get this probably next week. I think this will be the first entire wave of figures that I get!

    Right now nobody knows for sure if the Vader and Ahsoka will be part of a Mission Series 2-pack or released separately on their own individual cardbacks, but it'd probably be smarter for them to be in a 2-pack since that would make them a little easier to find (the single-carded Rebels figures are tougher to track down in stores) and the Mission Series sets tend to be a couple of bucks cheaper than two individual figures with current retail prices.

    They'll probably correct the colors before the figures are packaged at the factory and released. Hasbro's gotten color details on some recent figures wrong in the promotional or prototype images but then fixed the errors before the final product shipped to retail.

    Got my Funko Hawkeye today! I was surprised, the seller said it would be May. Maybe she hit the wrong button. :p

    He's so cute!

    He looks just right with Tasha and Coulson!

    Kind of related... I went to a Disney Store last week to check out those Star Wars diecasts, and came home with this. It gave me the warmest nostalgic feeling when I saw it:

    That looks adorable. Stuffed toys are fun to own even as an adult.
