Toy Topic: The Old Switcheroo

Hello Gang! Yesterday I was doing my Toy Run. Right now I'm taking inventory of what Rite Aids have Halo Reach figures, which ones and how much.

So I go into Target, see the Chitauri and buy another Halo Avatar (The Elite) and I see what I've seen for a few months now, but haven't bothered to address.

On Sunday I went to Target and saw this..

The whole Marvel Legends shelf was full of new Series 2 stuff. And a few days later on Wednesday I see this...

As you can see everything has been replaced with Klaw, Drax and Bucky Cap. There was one Fantomex, and some new Marvel Universe...

Not exactly new, but it shows there was a revision case in the store
But most of what was on the shelf was MU Gladiator.

So someone has been returning massive quantities of peg warmers. And I wholeheartedly disapprove.
It makes me think of doing the same thing and beating this person at his own game.

I have returned items to the store, but not so many that it turns the shelf into a monument to one solo action figure.

I know that Arnie from Marvelicious Toys found a Toys R Us with 150 Thor's from the movie's first wave.
I can attest that wasn't the case here. I saw the switcheroo.

And this makes me mad, because the pegs are full and there is no space for any new figures.

Anyone have a solution. I'm thinking of buying them up and putting then on ebay. Selling them with a dollar extra for my troubles.

What do you guys think? Should I let bygones be bygones or should we fight back?!!

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!

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.
