    Yeah, he kinda does.

    I hate that he's the only movie based action figure in the line, though. All the others are comic book action figures.

    Really wanted the movie version of Ultron...

    :(

    I hadn't noticed that. I thought there'd be more movie figures included in the new assortments than just Paul Rudd's version of Ant-Man.

    TRU has exclusive 2 packs with Cap/Widow, Ironman/Fury, and Hawkeye/Falcon. They are reissues except falcon and he looks pretty good, for a movie representation.

    I've seen the Captain America/Black Widow 2-pack at TRU. I assumed the Black Widow figure was just a straight repack or at most a slight repaint and tweak of the previous Scarlett Johannson figure and there wasn't anything really new in the packaging.

    Marvel hasn't had the rights to ROM in years. They can't even reprint the old issues.

    was at Game Stop today. just happened to check out their toys and found Anakin. i've seen him go for $40 on e-bay so getting him for $22 was a steal.

    Congratulations!

    GameStop is where I bought my 6" Anakin and the plain white Clone Trooper, both of whom were released in Wave 4 and saw very bad retail distribution thanks to the large numbers of pegwarming figures from the first three wave assortments. Anakin is a better figure than the Obi-Wan and should have been the one carried forward in the new blue-stripe Black Series box design. There's a pretty good market for the 6" Anakin Skywalker as the eBay and secondary market prices clearly demonstrate. He's one of the lesser-seen but better figures from the earlier waves of the 6" line.

    In other news, I scored the 6" Tauntaun and Hoth Han Solo at one of my local Walmarts and for the $30 clearance sale price that's been reported in many other parts of the country. It's the first time I've ever seen a 6" Deluxe set that wasn't Jabba or the Biker Scout with Speeder Bike. :)

    My Walmart has Cap WS figures on clearance at $7. They are back in the corner and buried where no one can see them.

    I've reached a sad moment in my collecting life. I've decided it's time to let my 3 3/4 inch Star Wars figures go. This line was the first line that I ever started collecting so many years ago, way back in the Power of the Force 2 days. However, I haven't bought a new figure from the line in a long time. I need the money and the space. It's a momentous step that I take with a heavy heart, but take it I must.

    Hey, you have to do what you have to do. I understand, man. I hope your sales give you the money and the space to collect other cool things you've been wanting.

    Nah, it's just a new version of Rom with new stories and new characters he has to deal with.

    So basically just Rom in appearance and name only since those are the only that two things that Hasbro owns while Marvel owns everything else including character development, backstory and supporting characters and enemies.

    I don't collect or build LEGOs but that new Millennium Falcon looks awesome and I like the "old" Han Solo figure included with the set. :)

    Cool poster and figures! I like the original 1977 poster art for the very first movie. :)
