  1. I need help and so I turn to the best toy resource I know of. Recently while visiting with their cousins, my kids discovered Zoobles. I have a young son who is on the autism spectrum (he is hyperlexic). He generally doesn't play with traditional toys. I want to encourage both his fine motor skills and his imaginative play with a goal of social interaction/conversational skills, so when he showed some interest in these toys, I got excited. Unfortunately, it appears that these toys may no longer produced. I could find them on amazon but the prices seemed high. From some internet searching, it appears that Zoobles were introduced as friendlier versions of Bakugan Battle spheres and were aimed towards a girl audience. They are basically ball shaped toys that transform into colorful figures when placed on a magnetic stand. Anyone know anything about these things or where I might be able to buy them at a reasonable price? I would be happy to trade minimates for them if anyone had some. My son would prefer the Zoobles, but I would be interested in the more aggressive looking Bakugan figures if that was what was available. Anyone run across these in their travels?
  2. Can I vote for more teams? What about villains? How can I vote for the Wrecking Crew? Generation Next or this version of X-Force?
  3. My Rewards coupon expires next week. Fingers crossed.
  4. The Johnny Cash Unearthed Boxset is fantastic.
  5. R.I.P. Mark SandmanPaul's Boutique - Beastie Boys Electric Ladyland - Jimi Hendrix London Calling - The Clash Workingman's Dead - Grateful Dead Innervisions - Stevie Wonder RIP is right. I probably saw Morphine more then any other band- they used to play Philly a lot- and they were surprisingly awesome live. He was a great frontman, with a really great dry wit. His death was one of the most devastating for me, right up there with Jeff Buckley.This is one of my five favorite songs, although it's a terrible introduction to the band, since nothing else they ever did sounds like it: That's my favorite Morphine song but it kind of makes me cry so I cant listen to it often. There's a DVD about his life. From what I can gather this is a song about his younger brother who died young. Heartbreaking. Also, FUCK DREAMWORKS. His estate produced a double disc featuring outtakes and whatnot. Dreamworks agreed to let them use out-takes from "The Night" but then rescinded the request at the last minute. There's still some good songs on that set though. It's 'Sandbox' by Mark Sandman.

  7. It's like you jinxed yourself. Next time say you are really picky about the quality of the packaging.
  8. Has someone mentioned octonauts? The main characters are anthropomorphic but they interact with a lot of non-anthropomorphic sea creatures.
  9. From the other thread. This cover was drawn by Frank Miller.
  10. I know it could never happen due to licensing, but wouldn't it be awesome to get 'mates based on movies like The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, Jason and the Argonauts, the Golden Voyage of Sinbad and Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger. So many great creature designs.
  11. Completely unrelated to anything but this is the first comic I remember buying.
  12. None of my stores carried Marvel Wave 18 TRU Wave 17 either. I haven't seen any Marvel comic-based minimates on sale in a Toys R Us store since the AVX Box Set.

  13. The flipside to the peghole debate is the Pathfinder Ghoul set. One character came with a black cape and hood. The other had a blue body and came with an alternate skull head. Immediately you think easy Skelator custom but then you realize that the skull head doesnt have a hole but the black hood has a peg. So the hood doesnt fit on the skull.
  14. Seems odd that Pyro would come with the F F, Doom and the Surfer. Not complaining just seems like a strange match.
  15. So, is Tru 19 out and available in stores?
  16. Sorry for the late reply. I honestly don't know who this guy is. Firelord maybe?
  17. Mystique would kill you if she heard you call her anti-mutant.
  18. My package arrived yesterday. I don't know who my Secret Santa is. The only potential clue was a Hello Kitty Christmas card. Lots of candy and individual wrapped goodness. First up are Lego-like Fantastic Four which is a wonderful gift. I have two young sons and they are not yet allowed to play with the minimates, but they will love these toys as stocking stuffers. Here we see the Fantastic Four. Here we see Doom Triumphant!! There was also a Silver Surfer and I think a Flame On Human Torch. Cool presents. Of course, what we are all interested in is the minimates. Here wee see a re-enactment of a typical Junior Prom from the early 90s. Thank you Secret Santa, you are the best thing ever.
  19. I'm glad you liked it. I was very nervous you wouldn't get them in time for the holiday. Merry X-Mas!
  20. How much did these sell for in the stores? They were $14.99 online not too long ago.
  21. DST is obviously a company that pays attention to the little details and that works hard to succeed. Makes collecting minimates that much more enjoyable. Great products. Great company.
