  1. I found my local cube today, but it was decimated. There was even an Iron Man figure where somebody had popped off and taken just the head of the thing. There was nothing left of interest but a few Wreckers and Iron Patriots, and I already have both of those. No comic packs at all, and no new Iron Man line or Spiderman line figures either. I'm disillusioned; this cube is lame.
  2. That tears it. All of you guys are having such good luck with TRU. I'm going back tomorrow to look for the cube again.
  3. SKull, those are awesome. What's the recipe for the Longshot figure? I HAVE to know!
  4. The Toycade guys on ebay expect it in "late September."
  5. Captain Britain, Mystique and Ghost Rider arrived in the mail today. And they looked awesome. pictures aren't really doing this particular set of figures justice in my mind. My Ghost Rider went up on my XO Wolverine bike, and things looked fine. I have him perched up pretty high, so I don't have to look at or worry about the damn "X" painted on the top. It's cool when you feel like you're filling in gaps in the Marvel Universe here. I just put Cap Britain next to Nightcrawler and Kitty Pryde, and it felt so right. That actually placed Britain nearby Guardian, which made me laugh a bit. My
  6. Yup. East L.A. I found the comic pack at a Target in Alhambra, and the others at Universal Citywalk. Most of the places I looked today were trying to offload old Namors and Green Goblins. The new figure I saw at most places was the gold renaissance Iron Man.
  7. Good haul today. I netted the Silver Centurion Iron Man, the long-haired Winter Soldier variant, and the Dark Avengers comic pack with Venom and Daken. Strange thing about the comic pack though was the comic inside--it had the cover of Dark Avengers #1 but no number on it. Inside it turned out to be not Dark Avengers #1 at all, but the Exodus special issue that ended the Dark Avengers/X-men Utopia storyline. Not only that, but the Terry Dodson-drawn pages where Emma Frost confronts the Sentry were missing from the book. Bizarre.
  8. That's a perfect Dr. Nemesis. He's the guy who helped to fabricate the original, android Human Torch--recently they've brought him into X-men continuity and he has become one of the more engaging add-ons to the team--full of withering sarcasm and basically taking over all the stuff that Beast used to do now that Beast is defecting to the Secret Avengers. Does the hat come from an Indiana Jones figure?
  9. That figure looks totally rad, man. Did you get that from Fatman? I like that Mystique seems to have two hands able to grip objects. She's often been depicted in recent years holding a pair of pistols, or something like that.
  10. My Wrecker and Iron Patriot arrived in the mail today. Both figures are awesome. Wrecker doesn't look nearly as clunky and pinheaded as he looks in the photographs I've seen. And now I've completed the Wrecking Crew! Exciting. I'm going to wait on the Skrulls until I find them cheaper. No one's seen the Target exclusives or the new comic packs, right? That's what I'm looking for now.
  11. Hawkeye is one of the finest figures. The new Colossus figure and the AIM soldier are also very nicely detailed and cool. Got the new Juggernaut figure in the mail today. He looks very neat. He's growing on me. I've never really jumped to attention when a comic features a Juggernaut appearance. I don't dislike him. He really has a strange costume design, in terms of the real-world. Saying nothing about his tiny, disproportionate head (maybe the perfect Rob Liefield character), the virtually all-brown costume is perfect for classic comics, with navy-to cobalt blue backdrops, colored by
  12. Damn. I just ordered Juggernaut, but Archangel looks too expensive to me still to justify ordering. So Archangel is the only one out of the new wave that I haven't run down yet. Incidentally, Big Bad Toy Store lists the Iron Patriot/Wrecker wave as coming in July.
  13. As someone pointed out on another thread here, Citywalk at Universal Studios has the new wave in stock. Picked up Colossus and Kitty today. They also had Havok and a bunch of the AIM soldiers. I think someone already got their Juggernaut and Archangel.
  14. Managed to snag a Rhino last week, as well as a Venom with the tongue sticking out. They turned out to be fine figures, though my Venom has just too straight a spine and to firm a posture. There really should have been more joints. Probably when the Daken/Venom 2-pk comes out I'll put this Venom head on that Venom body.
  15. "I can't beleive that I don't check these boards for a day or two (computer problems at work) and miss such an exciting conversation. Hamlet, Romeo, Othello (a few references to The Prince added in)...I missed all of the Shakespeare discussion! Come on, guys, wait for the professor of literature to join in next time." I can't believe you're a professor of literature and you're logging on to your work computer to discuss comic book action figures. In more seriousness, I liked the way the conversation went, too, Wedge. But you saw what happened; a giant ball of fire appeared where the di
  16. You guys don't think Hamlet had a death wish? That duel was rigged in so many ways... "As noted in last month's issue, his mission and whole reason for joining the Dark Avengers is to #$## with the team and ultimately kill Norman Osborn." ...which seems very weak characterization to me. It makes it so at the initial stage Daken has no obvious reason for joining the Dark Avengers. Osborn's way of selling it to him is getting the opportunity to stick it to Logan by dressing up as Wolverine. Daken never pursues this. If he's on the team to mess with the heads of a bunch of super-villain
  17. In his own comic Daken likes to hit on the male members of his team in order to make them uncomfortable. He toys with Karl Sofen in a similar way; teasing and threatening in equal measure. I think he's actually asexual; or perhaps sexually stymied in the way of Hamlet, dominated by an unbridled father figure that drains him of sexual drive. Daken uses sexuality to manipulate people, but he never closes the deal with any of them. It's hard to tell in the comics if that is simply because he is manipulating people, and nothing more, or whether he is subconsciously shying away from actual sexual s
  18. I'm with ya, Quasimodo; I like the Daredevil body, and I've had no problems with characters who sport it. I think the look is good for the buff characters who don't have some crazy serum flowing through their veins or a mutation or something that makes them huge.
  19. So Secret Wars packs are back today, but it's just what they have left over from their back stock. One Iron Man/Spider Woman pack, one Spiderman/Magneto pack. Been there, done that. the estimated delivery date 4 Secret Wars wave 3 has just hours to remain accurate. Hopefully early January will see these packs out in stores!
  20. I noticed Secret Wars packs gone from my local Targets as well. Is Target no longer carrying the item? This will be a bummer, since my local Target tended to get the new figures right as they became available.
  21. NeoZeRo35, if you don't mind my asking, what did you use to create the shoulder patch and shore up the neck of your Destro/Red Skull? Some kind of modeling compound? I also should say it just looks righteous good. I wanted to try it myself but I didn't really have the great sense you had to re-color the jacket and buttons and such. Brilliant stuff. I think I will do an Invisible Woman that way as well. Imitation being the sincerest form of flattery. Your ideas are too good not to try for myself!
  22. Hi RealOne, your Fantomex is awesome. Where is that great trenchcoat from?
  23. Got a rockin' Colossus today in the mail. Finally my shelf is starting to look richer with mutants. Cyclops, Iceman and a few Wolverines didn't quite cut it. And I know Namor's a mutant, but he doesn't really count. How long will that guy last with the X-men nowadays? Less than a year, I'm certain. Colossus fits very well with the other figures and the face is a little more subtle than any picture I've seen has made it out to be. He is substantially-built; he has cool muscle-tone and a neat aluminum-looking paint-job. The costume is quite nicely-done, too. Stuff's starting to look go
  24. I thought maybe they shaved it off right before they changed into costumes and then grew it back immediately upon disrobing. I thought that was one of those powers they all had in common.
