  1. Destroyer is the ONLY Thor movie line fig that caught my eye. Everything else is meh.
  2. the response to V3NOM from board members has been absolutely admirable. we all know V3NOM is a class act, but those of you who have sent him well wishes are pretty damn cool in my book too. good stuff.
  3. I know this is not a "sighting," but being that this is one of the more popular threads on the board, I figured this was a good place to drop this breaking news. For those of you that know my good friend V3NOM (aka riot_control) - Chris was recently in a car accident and is currently recovering in the hospital. I received the PM below from his fiance who wanted to inform everyone of Chris' condition. Not only is Chris an absolutely amazing and generous man, but he's also a tremendous father and partner to his fiance. I can't count the times Chris has selflessly helped me out in my collecting. There is literally no one who can compare to this man. He is in a class all my himself and deserves our well wishes, prayers, and positive vibes. Chris is in the hospital recovering from wounds and he STILL has the heart to ask his fiance to reach out to his fellow collectors on the board that were expecting packages from him. Yet again, another unbelievable gesture from this righteous man. Words fail to express how massively special Chris is. Thanks for reading... please send him your well wishes.
  4. especially when "someone" doesn't respond to PM inquiries about figures evilanimation, err, "someone" is selling. lmao.
  5. my friend V3NOM found some Destroyer's at his LCS up in Alaska. i'm eagerly anticipating mine in the mail from him.
  6. those auctions seem a little fishy, but who knows. someone might luck out. PayPal protection can come into play, though filing cases is a pain in the @ss. i had a HORRIBLE eBay experience with a known seller from Quebec. he bought one of my auctions then tried to extort feedback. when i didn't "buy back" the X-Force Archangel i sold him, he gave me negative feedback - this was of course after all the nasty emails he sent, which said a lot about his intelligence level. total douche - French pun intended. the tool fu@cked up my perception of French Canadians. on a SIGHTINGS related note, thanks to Onyx for the IM2 Mandarin and custom Venom head!! finally adding Mandarin to my Super Villains lineup is a "sight" to behold.
  7. js11js11 said it best: patience err, though many of us don't always exercise it. lol. i think the fact that we collect toys, which indicates the inner-child in us, would have a lot to do with us not always exercising patience. haha. how many of us were truly patient as kids??!!!
  8. wow... the more i start to venture into this thread, the more blown away i am at the amount of talent found herein. those Gambit flaming cards are ridiculously sick!! Hulk's head sculpt and leg extensions are magnificent! keep wowing em, gents. i'm fascinated.
  9. i have yet to see anything newer than the newest stuff. in a sightings note, i finally got my Crossbones! thanks evilanimation!! the Cap line is officially dead to me now.
  10. same here. the two Docs and i'm done w this wave. bring on X23.
  11. that's a crazy repack! lol. kinda clever actually. i still prefer the XMO Deadpool, but that's just my opinion. a solid figure.
  12. stopped by Disney Store out here in So Cal on my way to work as i was looking for a Stretch Strike Venom to customize. sure enough, there were 6 on the pegs! saw Red Skull, Bucky Cap, US Agent. i already have Red Skull. Bucky Cap was kinda tempting, but i didn't really want him. in the end, i brought home a SS Venom. now on to customizing this bad dude in pure black!
  13. Ya no #$@#...man I have a problem....I am going to return everything that you guys do not take. that Crossbones is coming home to me. lol.
  14. i finally opened my Stretch Strike Venom... and he takes some getting used to. i really dislike the paint vibe. i remember seeing images of the dark version that was never released. why in the hell Hasbro decided to go with the purple/gray tone over dark black is beyond me. that said, i would consider selling mine if someone was interested in taking him off my hands. not looking to trade unless you have an IM2 Mandarin.
  15. curious if the board has any plans for another layout any time soon. any snazzy new features coming down the pike?
  16. just a hunch... but... being that Memorial Day weekend is upon us... does anyone else feel that Captain America figs might be restocked for the holiday? would make sense from a marketing standpoint.
  17. out looking for that friggin Crossbones that i have yet to find in the wild and i stumbled across some of the new Joes: Hawk, Blowtorch, Crazy Legs, Croc Master, Iron Grenadier, Viper, and x2 Troopers. i hung out with them for about 5 minutes, reminiscing on the days when i would have gone nuts finding new Joes. in the end, i only bought the Viper... which is awesome... and potential trade bait for Crossbones!! haha.
  18. congrats on your score! i am resisting scalper prices for Crossbones right now... but its really hard to resist when there's toy money sitting in my PayPal. :) i did pay $16 shipped for my CA Red Skull... i had no backbone on that one.
  19. sorry for the confusion. this is the XMO Sabretooth i was referring to: highly recommended.
  20. came across First Class CP and Wolvie/Sabre CP at TRU for $17.99 :/ and easily passed. Marvel Girl was disappointing, Cyclops is a total meh compared to Wave 13 Cyke, Wolvie is decent, but MU Sabretooth can not hold a candle to comic series XMO Sabretooth - far, far superior in quality. not bad if you don't already have a Sabretooth in your collection, but IMO, if you can get your hands on the XMO version, you'd be pleased.
