I'll be getting those Cantina aliens for sure. I've been wanting figures of those guys since the late 70's. Especially the Landspeeder dealer (Wioslea) - freakin' cool.
Target West Hollywood had a lone SW Transformers TIE Bomber/TIE Pilot yesterday. Pricing has gone up 10% though, so I passed.
Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.
Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.
The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
Received Indy Wave 4 (Temple of Doom) today in the mail (ordered from RazorsEdge). Incredible figures - Hasbro really kicked butt on this wave (and the Last Crusade wave). Highly recommended by Snags (if you manage to find them).
Still looking for an opener set so if anyone happens to find them, please stash me a set (condition doesn't matter).
-Good Old Snags
I had the misfortune of being in Panorama City tonight, including WalMart. Luckily, I found two Coruscant Landing Clones, but no Saleucami's.
They had lots of the latest comic packs, tons of Indy pegwarmers, and a brand new island display that was all boxed up: labelled IJ, Hulk, Spiderman Combo Display. I tried to sneak a peak, but couldn't get through the cardboard.
I was able to take from the pallets a box of the exclusive Marvel Legends. The case had already been opened. Everything was there, except Crossbones (the coolest figure of that wave, in my opinion) but I did get the human torch variant.
I also got the new Universe Deluxe transformers: Ironhide and silverstreak. Ironhide is just awesome! (didn't care for the other red car).
I never scored anything at that crappy store until today.
That store saw a lot of action today! I was there this afternoon and picked up two complete sets of the Marvel Legends exclusives (a set for me, a set for Sentry) although I only purchased one of the Torches for myself. The Torches are packed 50/50.
I wonder what's in that combo display... might have to go back again tomorrow and find out!
