    Picked up the Target exclusive Iron Man vs Ultron 3 pack tonight for $14.99, then went next door to TRU and found Sandman and Gracie Law.

    CCC.

    It's now believed that the 3.75" Jabba in this new set isn't a straight repack of an older figure and may not even be a repaint of an existing Jabba the Hutt from a previous figure line. Comparison images of this one and the previous Jabba (a 2010 Walmart exclusive with his dais, Salacious Crumb and Oola) seem to indicate that Hasbro may have sculpted a brand-new figure for this multipack since the head appears to more closely resemble the recent 6" Black Series figure.

    It's possible the head is new while the body is a repaint of the previous release, but until more photos hit the Internet and collectors get a close-up look at this set it'll remain a mystery. I wouldn't mind a kitbashed mix of old and new parts but an all-new Jabba the Hutt would be even cooler and more exciting since it's been almost five years since the last one in this scale.

    I've wanted a Rancor toy ever since I was a kid. My mom got me the Ewok village and the speeder bike for my birthday that year, instead.

    I don't have this particular Rancor so if Jabba is indeed a brand-new figure that means most of the plastic in this box will be new to me and thus a good investment. A lot of recent multipacks from Hasbro have little or nothing that I don't already own, so this is a great one for multiple reasons (including another Vintage Collection Gamorrean Guard).

    Cool! Do you have all the Doctors or are there still certain ones you're missing (or that haven't been made yet)?

    It sucks how limited our options are for 8. At least they released that 8th Doctor/Dalek two pack a while back so you don't have to buy the 11 Doctor set to get him.

    yeah, he seems to be pretty expensive on the back market. i have a feeling he will be the last one i get. just not prepared to spend $35 or more on him right now.

    Picked up the VT-49 Decimator expansion. I really like this design and even though I'm not familiar with all of the game mechanics, I've heard some good reviews from gamers who like how the ship is integrated.

    Funko is doing a Pop! Vinyl Scarlet Witch. No idea if they'll do Quicksilver, too...

    Also- I always change the outfits on my dolls with the changing seasons.

    1. Julie tries out her new skateboard.

    2. It’s raining like hell today, so she “borrowed” Molly’s umbrella. She also got some takeout from Ivy’s grandparents’ restaurant. (Really just a Hello Kitty tin. The candy inside sucked, but I wanted that tin!)

    3. Ivy borrowed Julie’s jeans and sandals…and decided that she likes the Mets and not the Giants. (The dolls are “from” San Francisco, so that’s not a popular decision. :p Ivy “borrowed” the Mets shirt from my Hello Kitty Build-a-Bear doll!)

    Does the American Girl series offer different sets of clothing for the dolls so that you can change the ways they look, or do you just get the one or two sets of clothes that come with each girl that's it?

    They could probably make a lot off of selling bonus packs of shirts, pants and dresses for the kids and collectors who want to change the way their dolls look from time to time.

    Oh, there are tons of clothes for each doll. They even sell closets for them. :p

    I probably should have remembered that since my late mom loved the American Girl dolls so much, but it's been ages since I've looked at one of their catalogs or any other promotional materials. That's smart of them, really. Since the number of dolls is limited make sure they have a ton of different clothes to add variety and make things more exciting.

    Jedi Temple Archives and Rebelscum have posted lots of photos from the floor of Celebration Anaheim showing packaged images of new 3.75” Black Series figures including the brand-new Han Solo in Carbonite. Great stuff, and the new Clone commanders also turned out to be pretty good looking.

    Picked up the new Arrow and Deadshot figures the other day. I now have a fairly nice CWverse collection going. I can't wait for the upcoming ones. I will say, while DC Collectibles has come a long way in the past couple of years as far as articulation goes, they still have a ways to go. It would really be nice if the Arrow could do an actual archery pose.
