    I'm having so much fun with my figures. It's ridiculous! :lol: I thought about doing a Nativity scene with Hawkeye and Black Widow...but that would have been too much.

    So here's bad boy Clint instead.

    That's about the only modern MotU figure that I bought. Some of my original 80s MotU figures are still around in storage somewhere.

    Oh, that's okay. Post any photos you want, really. Any toys you own, old or new. We'd just like to see whatever you have.

    I can't wait to see what OdoWan has planned for today's "Twelve Days of Christmas" toy motif.

    (*Fingers crossed*)

    Come on, Sith Lords and Stormtroopers....

    I'm trying to use a variety of lines in this. Don't worry, eddie. There will be more Star Wars. :D

    Heh....I can't wait.


    You guys might want to check your local Target in case you're still interested in acquiring the exclusive Darth Maul Returns Battle Pack but didn't like the full shelf price.

    The Holiday clearances have begun.

    I have always found the "Darth Maul's Brother" on that package to be rather humorous. :lol:

    According to Big Bad Toy Store New 52 Justice League Superman is available to order now, I thought he wasn't going to be available until next month, so this was a pleasant surprise. He should be arriving just before Christmas if I'm lucky :)

    I saw him at my LCS on Wednesday, so he's definitely out.

    I'm not totally up to speed on the newer Superman comics, but is the New 52 Superman the one the revamped costume in the upcoming Man of Steel is based upon?

    ^ That'd be correct...although I don't know if we can totally credit the MOS suit being influenced by the New 52 costume since there are differences. To me the MOS suit reminds me more of JJ Abrams "Superman: FlyBy" designs than the New 52 Superman. They both have no trunks on the outside though :)

    This is what the figure looks like. There are a couple variants already, but this specific one is from the 'Justice League' DC Direct (or whatever it's calling it's self now) line. He will complete the New 52 version of the "Trinity" as I already have Batman and Wonder Woman. :)
