ODD: Before you ask, yes, my webhost is having problems again. Fingers crossed that everything is resolved in the next few days. Apparently there’s some troublesome file server, and I think I speak for everyone in my cluster when I suggest that once all the data has been offloaded from that server, it should be dragged out into a field behind the office and smashed with a baseball bat.
But I digress.
END: An inquisitive DC Universe Classics fan uncovered two new photos this week: promo photos of Kalibak and the Sinestro Corps variant of Sinestro. (UPDATE: I’ve removed the Kalibak photo, as apparently Mattel doesn’t want it out there right now.) The Kalibak is a new reveal, and given the fact that the photo was found on Mattel’s retailer site, it’s probably safe to assume he’s the Collect & Connect figure for Wave 6.
ODD: I scored the second Iron Monger and Titanium Man from Hasbro’s Iron Man line in a trade this weekend. Watch for reviews of both figures over on OAFE sometime in the near future. My teeny-tiny review: they’re both pretty cool.
I’ll be posting most of my reviews posted on OAFE from now on (despite the fact that yo go re has yet to post a single comment over here…I don’t think he even reads the blog).
END: When I have all the figures that I could possibly want (not counting the ones that aren’t out yet), I tend to cast about looking for some other figure and then become obsessed with it. My latest is Attack Armor Batman, an international exclusive from Mattel’s 2003 Batman line (the grandfather line of DCUC). The bastard tends to go for upwards of $100 online (even loose!). Why do I want him, you ask? Well, basically, he’s got a dark blue/light blue color scheme I really like, plus the all-important hinged hips. On the downside, he has a cloth cape and is expensive as hell on the secondary market. Black-and-gray Batman from DCSH8 is arguably superior in every way, and yet…
I hope DCUC3 comes out soon. That’ll take my mind off it…
ODD: Mrs. Ghostal-to-Be and I were watching American Gladiators last night (because we’re awesome) and I saw that next week’s theme is going to be the Incredible Hulk, complete with Gladiator and living Ken doll “Titan” painted green for the event. If you don’t watch it, Wolf will eat you. Hurry up with those action figures, JAKKS!
END: I hope you all had a great Memorial Day. I’d like to send a note of thanks to both my grandfathers. My father’s father was a sergeant in the Air Force during WWII, and my mother’s father is a retired Navy captain. They’re both still alive and kicking today, but I wanted to let them know how much I appreciate their service for our country.
