Today I saw Hasbro had made a Spiral for Superhero Squad . She had a blade in each hand. The Marvel Legends Spiral last year that had 5 hands molded to hold weapons but only two swords. She came with a sword permanently molded into a scabbard which was completely worthless. It's not like any of the other figures came with matching swords. So I'm now especially pissed that the can get her armament right in a mostly static PVC but not for her ML figure.

I found some extra swords from various Spawn & Scorpion King figures that worked nicely.

And if Hasbro can deliver Sesame Street figures I'd say all is forgiven...

I saw Hasbro's 6" GG and copper armor Spidey. I can't understand why they even bothered to tool all new sculpts made of such abject failure.

Went to Wal-Mart tonight looking for replacement Christmas bulbs and saw a SLEW of Nemesis wave.
Picked up camo Punisher & red DD. Kinda decided I don't need gay cat Beast or manorexic Nova after all.

Instead I finally found City Strike Snake Eyes, which I've been trying to hunt down forever!

I put Paploo and his Ewok buddy in my pocket. It made me feel like Johnny Mego.

Desert Viper looks pretty cool! I found the Cobra Night Adder at TRU this afternoon, which looks pretty cool.
I keep hearing a new Firefly is coming out in the movie line.

TRU has all their Avatar toys at 20% off 'til Xmas eve. I bought the AMP suit and it's not half bad.
It's 3-3/4 scale so any GI Joe or Star Wars figure fits in there perfectly. Hopefully I'll be picking up a few more before it ends.

And Blockbuster has an exclusive "bloody" variant of Mezco's Wolfman for $14.99. Very cool figure.
Suck it Netflix!

The laughing fish that comes with the new Joker is the accessory of the year. It even fits perfectly in the new Man-Bat's mouth.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water...
I didn't even know they were still making Wolverine Movie figures anymore.
I know Target and Walmart haven't got in any new ones for months.
I stumbled on this just by chance at K-Mart.



Finally Found Sunfire and Vision


And there are new Spiderman 6" figures I know I'm missing a New Green Goblin and there has to be more than 3 new figures. But this all I found so far.



And I got that last City Strike Duke I needed for GiJoe.
Walmarts have been clearancing some Joe Stuff as well
I got some exclusive Battle Stations for 7.48

The Night Raven for 19.99

I got the Snake Eyes vs. Storm Shadow box, with the Dojo diorama. Very cool.

And today Target had the giant Rancor on clearance for $24.98, which is awesome cause I've been waiting for them to red tag it since forever!

I picked up a wave 10 man bat and marvel select daredevil from my comic shop the other day. I love the paint on man bat! it may be my favorite dc figure now! I never got the sdcc version. the daredevil has a cool sculpt but sub par articulation but looks nice posed with his cool church top base.

I almost want it just to have the church base for the Nemesis wave DD!

Even though I hated H2 I still got the new Mezco Michael Myers at my comic shop because the figure does look kinda cool.
Also at my comic shop, the Army of Two figures are already out. Shit they just announced them a couple months ago and suddenly they show up?? Meanwhile no word on anything new with the Potter figures (they still haven't released Greyback or the Weasley twins yet).

I think NECA are focusing on getting figures out to coincide with the game releases now, makes sense from a business perspective I suppose. The next lot will be the Bioshock 2 figures, Big Sister looks cool!

I couldn't believe my eyes at TRU yesterday. I'm doing my usual rounds in the isles. Star Wars, DCUC, MU, GiJoe, Wrestling, Neca, And I see this nerdy young guy pick up this very Bruce Wayne figure. I knew right away what it was and can't believe he didn't. The second he put it down I went in for the kill. I kind of feel underhanded becuase it was still warm to the touch. He didn't seem to mind, it wasn't like I pushed him to ground or anything, I just kindly said hello to see if I could distract him at the same time I picked it up. Laughing

I finally found the repacked-repacked Joker to finish my CVS Series 3


And a Special Thank You to BBTS for packing my DCUC 11 so well they gave me the perfect box to store my 25th GiJoe Ultimate Battle Packs from Target. They have been sitting out forever waiting for the perfect box. Smile

I might be able to help you out on those Joes. They kind of went stail here and are not moving. I have all I need. I hope. Unless they come out with another wave I'm not aware of. They have to be going on clearance soon. If they hit $5 a pop do you want them? I can't really aford to extend my wallet on another set and wait for payment at their current price. But if they go on clearance I think I could help you out.
I have been passing on the vehicles too untill they go on clearance.
