And your Uncle would be who?

It's easier if I refer you to the "Books" section in the Forums and check under the "World War II buffs..." thread.

Don't call me lazy, Barry, it's just easier instead of re-posting all the info!

Character Options 5th Doctor (Peter Davison) figure.

11-06-2008, 09:09 PM
Sideshow 12" Gandalf the Grey - pricey, but an excellent version of the character. Extremely recognizable, nearly perfect likeness. Great costume elements. Only complaint of note is the loose joints at the ankle and wrist swivels.

Star Wars Cade Skywalker/Darth Talon 2pack - first one had the sabers, but Cade's hand snapped off. Replacement I found at Target had no sabers but figure worked, so I swapped out and returned the excess to Target for my $14 after tax back. Cade is pretty cool, cartoony eyes are a bit much but generally decent figure, lots of articulation, gun is oversized but nifty, it's a good figure. Darth Talon isn't bad for what it's supposed to be, they didn't over-boobage her but the design at the hips is a tad odd, and there's no elbow articulation, and head paint is not as tight as it should be since it's all tats. Comic was interesting, better than issues 0 and 1.

The Dark Knight Batpod - Good enough, I guess. For the price, it's decent, detail could be a little more accurate in the sculpt but deco and execution of tires and such are decent. Biggest problem is that it's overscaled compared to its Movie Master figures, it's too darn big.

With the car repair didn't think I could get anything this month, but because they forgot to quote me at the begining, the service manager waved the part cost (yea!!!!) and only got dinged for service.

So, with that...big haul..

11-13-2008, 08:23 PM
Bender's Game DVD - decent, but not the brilliance of Bender's Big Score.

Sideshow 9" Frodo exclusive - fairly good, likeness is better than photos suggest, but I don't like the exposed Hot Toys joints or the shin situation, and I was expecting the Ring to be metal, not plastic.

Titanium Series TIE Defender - not great. Permanent stand sucks, plastic wings suck, paint and sculpt are only fair. Not much metal.

TS Rebel Transport - decent, could use a little more boxes sculpted to the underside tho'. Should "do" something too, not really interesting, has room for improvement. Only real thing that needs fixing though is the engines are too simple in deco and sculpt.

TS Imperial Landing Craft - minor letdown. Deco is too dark, sculpt is fairly accurate but not a particularly interesting ship to begin with. Feature feels flimsy. Minimal metal, very lightweight.

TS MTT - amazing! Nearly all metal, very hefty, nearly perfect sculpt. You can really see the difference on this holdover sculpt from 2000 compared to a lot of modern sculpts. Tons of detail and a movie-accurate action gimmick (slide-out droid rack). Only real letdown is the wheels on the underside are cast opaque instead of clear, and they show.

Asohka Tano
GI Joe Wraith (normal variant)--I'm very impressed with the detail on his sculpt. And a bit of a hint, if you take off his hands, push up the gauntlets, you can than rotate the forearms to allow the elbos to bend more naturally.

I just got the Grevious (BD 25)....I'm not a Grevious "fan" but this is a great figure....

1. It's huge, just as a Grevious should be (Anakin: "Your shorter than I expected!"....so true of every Grevious figure).

2. Great articulation: head, torso, feet, major swivel armage (and the four can be snapped together to form 2!).

3. Acceptable likeness....

I picked up an Obi-Wan just so he wouldn't be lonely!

11-21-2008, 09:24 AM
Because our Mall offers buy X with Discover card, get Y in gift cards, we're using that for Christmas shopping. Bought the big ticket items already, and were $20 short, so my wife authorized the buying of 2 comic packs.

Got me a Karrde/Thrawn pack
Vader/Trachta comic pack.
Oh, plus the gift cards.

I picked up 2 figures but they are both currently in my car. It is way to cold to go out and fetch them. I, after all, am writing this in my underwear, which I bought a week ago, the underwear are boxers, and they are a very nice patriotic Stars and stripes.

Transformers Universe Ironhide - good ideas, poor execution. Mine is bluefaced and has a paint error too, the lower part of a side window is unpainted. Alt mode is very cracky everywhere. It's also too narrow especially on the lower half, and the back end doesn't look like something you'd see on a vehicle like this. The underside is largely empty which causes the whole thing to be a little fragile, easy to cave in. Transformation is very clever, but ends up with some big problems by not thinking through a few things. Bot mode has a lot of backpack, a sunken in neck, hollow lower legs and skinny upper legs, screw holes, and stability issues in the upper body. The articulation is decent tho. The weapon is largely a brick, but the gun at least looks cool. I'd grade it a "C" probably.

Star Wars Clone Wars Jedi Delta Starfighter - kinda nifty split-in-half gimmick, deco is too clean, clever secondary cockpit for full sized figs in the droid slot, sculpting is good but could be a little tighter. Not too shabby though.

WALL*E U-Repair dlx WALL*E - very nifty, good wear deco, ok articulation but could be better, really comes apart a lot, second set of damaged treads.

WALL*E dlx EVE - pretty cool figure, interesting way of doing the eyes and arms, nice hover stand, good accessories, love how the chest doors work.

Star Wars Prince Xizor / Leia Organa Comic pack - I actually read this book and comic back in the day. Xizor is a very good figure, good sculpt and deco, hampered only by hard plastic skirt and lame recycled staff. Leia is ok, but paint problems on the face and hair, and a loss of femininity with the squared hip articulation and the oversized ankle articulation - this figure would have been better served by cheating the ankles and either not articulating them or not painting them like flesh. Her cloth wrap is a pain in the *** as it's not that accurate and it doesn't fit for crap and doesn't lay down at all. Still, an ok set.
