    i placed an order like 3 weeks ago for the Robin 13" Deluxe figure from Final Destination because dang that's a good price. I got an e-mail today saying that there was a problem with their inventory and they can't fulfill my order (I wasn't charged)

    does anyone know a good site to order from. preferably on the cheaper side

    Bad Karma gave me one but i deleted the PM and don't remember the site

    Keith you just need to ask.

    Final Destination?

    I want to order the 13" Robin Deluxe figure because they have it for $50, but I don't know if they're good or not.

    Don't think I've heard of them. If I use an online retailer, it's usually http://www.alteregocomics.com/, though I normally just use eBay, especially for DC Direct things since the markups can get crazy on regular store sites.

    If you go the eBay route, buy from eBenji. He's got practically everything, and at decent prices. Plus he's on the East coast which is a plus.

    see, $60 is an okay price, but then i gotta spend $8 on shipping so why not just pay the extra dollar and pick it up at a shop

    which is what i'll probably end up doing

    unless my shops overcharge on them

    They'll probably charge $69.99 for it. I'd wait and see what you can find on eBay. Unless you have to get it on the day it comes out.

    well yeah, they'd charge the $70 MSRP, when that one site is $69 after shipping.

    I'll probably wait until my tax return to get it

    During my comic book shopping today I picked up the DC Armory line. They were only $12.50 each and I got 15 percent off on top of that. I was just glad they actually made a figure of Aquaman in his Our Worlds at War Armor. I'm a lecherous individual so I posed Flamebird (Supergirl) and Nightwing (Power Girl) in a nice hugging pose.

    Well it's that time of the year again.

    Toy Fair!

    Though the show officially starts later today, there are plenty of pictures of some of the new items coming out in the near future.

    Not much yet from DC Direct, but what's been shown looks damn good.

    Joker 1:2 Scale Bust

    Wonder Woman 'Museum Quality Statue'

    Batman and Superman being the first two to be released. Let's face it, they weren't that great. This one looks like a winner, though I don't care for the blue highlights used for the hair. Maybe there's just too many. I dunno.

    Just came back from the toy fair. I went to the Diamond booth, and they didn't really have a lot of new stuff, surprisingly. A nice Batman bust, and some Justice League figures that are coming out sometime soon, but that was about it. I also went to the Dark Horse and McFarlane booths; Dark Horse has some really nice statues coming out soon, including some Spirit statues and a line of "classic" DC stuff that I'll try to put some pictures up of (I grabbed their catalogue and will try to find someone with a scanner :p). The McFarlane booth let me take pictures, and I got one of a Spawn statue (but, uh, who really likes Spawn?) and some of the Halo stuff they're putting out.

    There was another booth that had some cool miscellanious comic book stuff, including some nice Ninja Turtles figures, but they wouldn't let me in because I had an exhibitor's pass. Lame.

    More stuff!

    Unfortunately, there only seems to be one new 13" figure in the bunch, in the form of a deluxe package. Supposedly the Green Lantern Corps set includes one male figure, dressed as a GL, featuring four swappable heads. Good chance to get a Hal Jordan figure without having to spend a couple hundred on the original release. He won't have his current uniform (featuring green shoulders) but what the hell.

    Also new shots of Green Arrow (with a fixed feather in has cap), Bizarro (much better looking), Joker (hate the teeth, but the rest is great), and Harley Quinn.

    I think I'd probably end up wearing that Superman cape and belt to work everyday if I bought it. Seeing that new Secret Files Batman Rogues line makes me RE-curse myself for never buying the Black Mask figure from I think series 1. Does anyone know anywhere still selling that thing?

    You could ask Ebay, or google.

    Seriously though, sometimes I can find old discontinued stuff just sitting on the shelf at Suncoast for like 5 bucks. It is how I got Lobster Johnson.

    Are those the same scale as DC Direct? Because that Two-Face looks good, and would look even more gooder next to my Joker and Scarecrow.

    they are really the perfect price for me

    I can't really justify spending more than twenty bucks on something unless I'm going to be able to find some use for it

    hence my overlarge collection of HeroClix

    The Super Hero Squad stuff is really nice - especially since it's the same scale as the Starwars Galactic Heroes and the Transformers line. There's an Indiana Jones line coming out too. My son has a bunch of the SW and Spidey ones. The (movie based) Doc Oc and Sandman ones are especially cool.

    Maybe I was too exhausted or something, but I swear I saw that set for 79.99 somewhere. Maybe someone screwed up their decimal place.

    Awesome Sideshow Collectibles news...

    Unfortunately Sideshow isn't at Toy Fair this year, but instead they're rolling out a lot of new items for order this week.

    Now there have been some great that have gone up for sale...there's Gandalf, Indiana Jones (new license), and even Obi-Wan in his Clone Wars digs (finally)...

    But...those aren't even the best of them..

    First up, a remake of an item that has eluded my grasp for a long time...The Samaritan, this time for Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Visually, the gun is more or less the same as the original, but, this time around she's made of metal and wood, unlike the original which was all polystone.

    Last but not least, at a whopping $700, the Iron Man Life Size bust. Light up eyes folks..light up eyes.

    Videos Here!

    Finally some cool DC stuff I can get for my godson. (and maybe me...)

    IMG_4197.jpg

    Look how badass Hawkman is. He's all like.."yeah, you'll snuggle with me, or I'll bash your face in with a mace. "

    There's also a new line of "collect them all" figures coming out called "DC Universe - Infinite Heroes." They're smaller scale, more akin to the old Super Powers figures. Supergirl needs a nose job.

    More Pictures Here

    There's also the new Dark Knight figures here.

    Mattel is really taking Hasbro over its knee with these figures.
