  1. I finally found Wave 10! In Santa Monica! Which is super far away from my house and a pain in the butt to drive to (I was there for work). They had a complete wave, or they did, until I snatched up that Adam Warlock and Rocket two pack. Good luck out there!
  2. Not for nothing, but a box set of Ghost Rider (traditional), Daimon Hellstorm, Satanna, and Blackheart, seems like the perfect tie-in set to release around halloween next year. I doubt it'll happen, but one can hope.
  3. Vineland and Magnolia; it's the one that's just East of the big arts district drag. Noho, while still a little weird, has really cleaned up it's act in the past 5-10 years; Some real fun spots now. How long ago were you living there?
  4. I found a single remnant of Wave 10 (Venom and Hammerhead) in North Hollywood today among a sea of Kang/Ms. Marvels. Again, I didn't buy it (I prefer my QC Hammerhead) but it was nice to see something just a little different on the shelves.
  5. Would you believe, I actually found series 9 (Enchantress/Executioner, Star Lord/Collector, Kraven/spidey, and Hobby/Spidey) today in Burbank. Not as exciting as finding that Adam Warlock wave, nor that Spider-Girl wave, but a nice change from the Kang/Ms Marvel's that have been clogging up the shelves for the past... eight months? It was very exciting, even if I didn't buy any of them.
  6. You and me both, brother! Here's hoping the line lasts long enough until that bonkers Dr. Strange sequel comes out and we get a trippy supernatural wave with Nightmare, Sleepwalker, and a new Man-Thing.
  7. Two questions: 1- Which Nomad? Steve in a cape or Jack with a baby? I'm partial to the latter myself. 2- Where can I send the check?
  8. It was on the John Wick slide during the presentation. I saw a picture of it at some point, I'm pretty sure.
  9. So, I can see where you're coming from and I understand your frustration, but I totally disagree. While I like slipovers when it comes to straight masks (like Captain America), the bigger bulkier stuff looks weird when it's sculpted. More to the point, I'm just really excited to see Darkhawk. It's so rare that we get figures of the off-the-beaten path characters, not to mention ones that are on my wishlist, that I'll take what I can get. I'd rather have a darkhawk than worry about having the PERFECT darkhawk. Now bring on a Deathlok!
  10. AGH! DARKHAWK IS WHAT I'M HERE FOR! Super stoked for the whole wave. What a great mix of deep fan cuts (I'm looking at you, Moondragon) with some new hotness and fun costumes. This is exactly the kind of comic wave I like: loosely related with something for everyone. Or most people at least. Great job, DST. Here's hoping it's the start of a new era!
  11. For the record, I would much rather a line of life support during this down period than giving it a definite ending. I am very pro 3-4 waves a year and the occasional movie (MCU or not) boxset. It's just like the old days when the line was just beginning. Anyway, also, I didn't realize those were two different sets on display. I'm super down for that Arana and maybe that Doc Ock. And that Venomized boxset isn't quite my cup of tea, but I can't deny that I'm intrigued by those designs. Color me excited!
  12. The more I sit on it, the more I disliked the movie. I don't like Peter being forced in the the Iron Man Jr roll and I don't like the global scale. It felt like they wrote a movie about Spider-Man in Europe and then were told they needed to service all this 'blip' nonsense, which made for an unsatisfying combination. You know what would have been nice? Seeing a street level view on how people were reacting to 'The Blip'. That first movie was all about Peter finding his place in the world, so why not see how the world has changed since the blip? Maybe focus on him being an inspiration to the community while the community is all focused on this new mysterio person. I dunno. It seems like a real wasted opportunity to not delve into the real personal effects of 'the blip' and instead make it a big handwave-y joke. That said, I really really loved Mysterio. Loved the reveal, loved the take, loved the actor. He really elevated the movie and I wish there was more of him in it. Also, I really liked Zendaya whom I'm still bummed is called MJ. Not because MJ can't be black or anything, but because she's nothing like that character. She's creating a wonderful, well-defined character of her own that I wish was just Michelle or Meesh or Shelly or whatever. Like the MCU Spider-Man, she's operating in a shadow she shouldn't be; let her break free! Lastly, I think that last credit stinger is setting up and I'm all about it.
  13. Oh! You know, I'm thinking of that Walgreens Enchantress that people were turning into a classic Sersi. Total brain fart. Thank you. Replace that non-existent Sersi with a comic accurate Dr. Minerva.
  14. I am a crazy person. I just spent the last hour or so casually flipping through the database (hail Ivan) looking for who could fit those clues. Best I came up with in the "It's been ten years and they've only been made once and long overdue for a redo" category is: Hercules, Sunspot, Photon, USAgent, and Mephisto. And the best I came up with in the "Only one but more recently" category is: Ms. Marvel, The Jackal, Sersi, and Man Thing. My best guess for a themed wave - based on what we know about upcoming Marvel shows/movies, weird rights issues, and all that gobblygook - would be either a Supernatural Wave (what with the Ghost Rider and Hellstorm shows upcoming) including a Mephisto and Man Thing OR maybe a Galactic Storm Avengers Wave including a Hercules and like, a Sersi. I'm more inclined to believe the former than the latter, but really, who knows. I'm in for whatever it is.
  15. Nah man. That Miles? Should have been The Jackal. But not the 90s, green monster Jackal, but the red suited Ben Reilly version. Net result would have been the same amount of bitching, but with the fodder to make an outted Daredevil figure.
