Toy Haul NYC

Today I decided to check out the Target on Main Street in Flushing. It seems to be my own secret place. As I have been finding stuff there lately. And it's not to far from my house.

Anyways I went in and LO! and BEHOLD! they had the Thor figures in stock. There were 2 Frost Giants, but no Loki's or Odin's. They had the aforementioned hammer, but they didn't have the Nerf one.

Regular figures were $7.99. And I was tempted to pick up the Secret Sword Thor, since it's the only one that comes close to the Movie Thor and it has lots of articulation.

But I'm gonna hold off till Sunday, to see if Target or Toys R Us has some kind of sale.

Because, back when I used to buy DVDs I always noticed that the first week the DVD comes out Target has them at a sale price. So I'm thinking Maybe something might happen. It's not like these figures are rare. They will be flooding every toy store on the 1st of March.

They had the Electronic Thor for $19.99 and had that new Spider-Man mask, Captain America and Thor masks. I also peeped (saw) the Reveal The Shield 2 Pack of Rodimus and Cyclonus ($19.99)

But at the end of the day I bought a new Tripod, since the last one I had was a horrible one I bought at Walgreens. The legs have trouble staying extended and sometimes I can't get them to stay the same lengh.

And Joy Of Joys! I found the Nightcrawler/Storm comic pack. I wanted this pack for Mohawk Storm, since we will be getting Nightcrawler in the X-Men second genesis pack. My Secret Wars collection is almost complete!

New Stuff For "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" Cartoon

While watching the special features on the Avengers DVD's they announced new looks and new characters for the series, which is awesome!

I like the series and the way they tackle stories for the Marvel Universe. The Ultimates line of comics did the same thing, but somehow they got it wrong. These guys got it right.

Halo: New York Toy Fair 2012

Wow! I didn't expect much from McFarlane but I am impressed. Even though my toy heart was broken by the realization that Halo Reach ends with series 6 ( I expected an unhelmeted Emile and Noble Six? in Series 7) But as long as the scale of the new stuff sticks with Reach I'll be happy. If not I hope the quality control gets better.

Here's the stuff I'm excited for!

Super Hero Squad Online Review

If you haven't gotten my open invitation to the beta, and accepted it. You're missing out on being a Marvel Super Hero. Unlike DC's MMORPG you can play as Thor, or Spider-Man if you wanted to. But lets go into the review shall we.

Size Comparison - Halo Reach Video Series

I love the Halo Reach line of figures from McFarlane Toys. I don't know why I didn't jump on the bandwagon earlier.

But I've always gotten into toy lines after or near the end of their run. I don't know why, it just is.

Top 10 Halo Reach Figures!!!

To end the year of doom 2012, I'm making this list and checking it twice.

Sadly the most you will find in stores is series 6. All these figures are awesome. EVEN THE SABRE PILOT!!! (with his obnoxious eyebrows).

So here you go, from 10 to 1...


 10. Carter:

The leader of Noble Team and one of the coolest armor designs comes in at number 10. Not because he's the worst, but because it might be too obvious if he's number 1. I love the Commando armor, the blue color and the distinctive markings.
