Riddle me This! Marvel Universe Collector!

As many of you know, Target has a sale on their Marvel Universe Figures. But for quite some time all the Targets in Queens, New York have been plagued by the sight of Extremis Iron Man fulling the shelves like Iron Man was going out of style!

I was told by the G-Man some months ago that this was the work of a dastardly collector, who we know personally!

Yesterday I went to the Target in Flushing and took this pic. I also scanned the figure and it said there was more in the back!

Imagine my excitement, the prospect of getting the new wave of Marvel Universe figures at a bargain! (I'm starting to be like Secret wars and end every paragraph with an exclamation point!) So I decided to "give it a go" and ask an employee for help.

I got help and was told that there were no cases, but 32 individual units. I said Ok, but I'm not gonna buy them all. After waiting a while a female employee came out with one of those little carts that has like a shelf instead of a basket. But to my detriment all she brought out were Extremis and Team X figures. SMH (Shaking My Head)

I told her I was looking to get figures that weren't those two, to complete my collection. She was visibly upset, or bored. But I thought she was upset because she went through all this trouble and I wasn't buying.
I told her that I've been to all the Targets in Queens and I see these figures everywhere. She said that they were getting these repeat figures from their main Target distribution center. I told her I thought it was someones shenanigans. So I was stumped.

My question to you is, have you seen these figures flooding your local Targets? I think the girl (as pleasant as she was) has no clue and was just feeding me a line.

Target Sale week August 14-20!!!!

Not to be outdone by Toys R Us's fantastic 2 for 10.99 sale. Target already dropped the price of Marvel Legends figures down to 6.99, and are now tempting every collector and scalper out there to flood their stores with this new sale.


This makes me incredibly happy because it means we will soon see a deluge of Marvel Universe in the coming months. (all that stuff that was listed as "available now" at SDCC)
Also if I can find the new series (Scarlet Spider, Falcon, etc) at this price I would be in heaven.
Plus 2 for 6.99 is way better than 2 for 10.99!!!

Transformers Dark Of The Moon Movie Review

I have heard a lot of bad things about this movie, but it was mostly fan speculation. Heck I even told the GF that in the trailer the new girl looked like she was a damsel in distress in every scene she was in.

I went to see the movie with the Silver Fox, and she fell asleep by the end of the movie (The building toppling scene).
I on the other hand did like it. It was better than the last movie (ROTF) but not as good as the first. Which it's element of a boy and his alien was the main focus.

This movie delivers with it's explosions and humor (I was amazed at the amount of times the audience laughed.) And it's a nice wrap up to the series. If Transformers does come back to theaters I see it as a reboot, like Cybertron, Energon and Prime.

San Diego Comic Con Aftermath

Hello Gents!  SDCC has come and gone, and like I knew we would see some old stuff mixed with the new. It's always a good thing to wait, because you never know what will show up at the last minute. But thanks to various webzones, it was like we were there.
