All apologies for the relative dearth of posts these last few weeks, but I seem to be in a dead zone toy-wise.
I’ve read reports that McFarlane’s Halo figures and even some of Hasbro’s Iron Man movie toys have hit the streets, but a trip to the magic Toys ‘R Us and my local Wal-Mart came up snake eyes this past weekend. I had a TRU gift card, so I decided to just preorder a couple Halo figures off their website instead. Of course, the site has them listed as not shipping until the end of March, despite being in stores now.
As for Iron Man, the only figure I want is Iron Monger–who I’m guessing will be shortpacked, because that’s the way my world works.
There is some good stuff coming up in the near future. The oft-mentioned DCUC wave two should hit this week or next. The NECA Ninja Turtles will be out in April, and hopefully, the Four Horsemen’s second production run of Ramathorr will arrive somewhere in there.
Further out, I’m looking forward to Mattel’s Dark Knight figures in May and waves three and four of DCUC over the summer. Then there will be whatever the San Diego Comic Con DCUC exclusive is (any volunteers to pick that up for me…?).
On another topic, I’ve decided not to make Conan the Librarian a series (for now), and will instead make a random strip of some sort every so often (I”ll try to do it weekly, but for now I’m not committing to that). This will be in addition to Caption the Pic, which I’ll continue to do so long as I have toys to give away as prizes.
Has anyone else been bummed out lately? Maybe dem’s da breaks of living in New England in winter, but this has been one heck of a dark and dreary month.
