  1. Ask Zach

    How has working in the industry changed your perspective on comics and toy collecting?
  2. Star Trek - Reincarnated from the Genesis Planet!

    Really?! I just got one in a lot with the Mirror Mirror figures, Spocks Brain and Swashbuckling Sulu and more for $62 including shipping. Speaking of, I just completed my TOS crew collection with the above mentioned ebay lot. With some help from Facebook trades, ebay scores and Luke I was able to get all of the characters and their variants (except all the gold shirt Kirks, who needs 5 of that guy? He's like the Wolverine of Trek 'mates) This pretty much relit my Minimates collecting fire. Stoked to get this last lot and put them on display with the Mega Bloks sets.
  3. Thor: Ragnarok

    I've seen the remains of it here in L.A. but no sign of the Heimdall/Loki set. If anyone spots it I'd like at least one, two if possible.
  4. NYCC exclusive Contest of Champions 'mates

    The labels on the bags for the giveaway figures I've gotten had the safety warnings on them (choking hazard, bag not a toy, etc) as well as copyright/TM. That's a standard liability thing, especially with toys regardless of their distribution method. As for the "Not For Resale" label, that's not much different than individual Twinkie wrappers from the big multi-pack boxes that have "not packaged for individual sale" on them. The "Not For Resale" just means they aren't meant to be sold to the general public. If you want to argue semantics over the language then go for it. But don't read anything into it other than these are giveaways, plain and simple. If the person they are given to decides to sell them, well so be it. But CoC or Nickelodeon or DST or whomever aren't selling them, which is why they have that label on them. Now, who has them in hand and wants to show off some pics? I'm really curious about a close up shot of the shield with Civil Warrior. Looks like a brand new tool which is exciting.

    I will take your Iron Patriot Hulkbuster.
  6. NYCC exclusive Contest of Champions 'mates

    Yeah I bit on one of the $27.99 sellers for the set. Like MrClean said, a way better deal than I what I paid for the purple Donnie from SDCC.
  7. Kingdom Hearts

    Tron? SOLD!
  8. NYCC 2017 - Reveals

    Could be. There isn't a tag on it that I could see. I didn't expect anything new until after the panel though.
  9. NYCC 2017 - Reveals

    Looks like a new Spider-man box set maybe. Spider-sense Ben Reilly, Peter Parker, MJ, Chameleon. Haven't seen those revealed anywhere yet. And a couple other new ones that I don't recall hearing about either. Jack-O-Lantern and that black portal Spidey. That Predator wave looks sick! Bro-hands in action! Can't wait for it to come out!
  10. NYCC 2017 - Reveals

    DST's panel isn't until Friday night. New stuff will be in the booth after that.
  11. MARVEL STUD10S: The First Ten Years

    However you may feel about it, DST has done a great job giving us all the main characters from the MCU. The only ones we really need are supporting players like Balder, Hogun, the Collector, etc. I think anything they did now would likely be rehashes or "Greatest Hits" with maybe a new version of the main characters sprinkled in. Having said that though, I would jump at the chance to get some of the ones we missed out on. If they can find a way to expand the MCU line without bogging it down with reissues and repaints of the main Avengers I think it would sell. But we all know DST doesn't like to go backwards like this.
  12. Animated Marvel 'Mates

    New Hulkbuster? YES PLEASE!!!
  13. Exploding Detolf Shelf

    I know this is an older thread but I have a buddy whose entire back panel of glass shattered like this is one of his Detolfs. He's thinking it might have been assembled too tight. I've since loosened up mine just a smidge.
  14. Thor: Ragnarok

    Saw the remnants of the TRU wave today, 3 Thor/Hela 2-packs.No Heimdal/Loki though, which is the only one I need. But they've hit the L.A. area.
  15. NYCC exclusive Contest of Champions 'mates

    Yep. Gonna need that Civil Warrior or whatever he's called. Got a space for him in the Hall of Armor ready and waiting.
