I'm holding out hope that TRU will pan out this week. I was told they're getting in trucks every day this week!

There's some new images up at Entertainment Earth, including 4" Series 2 , Movie Moments, 12" Jack (all plastic)...

I'm really looking forward to the Jack Sparrow in Series 2 in his longcoat. That's my favorite look for ol' Witty Jack!

Disney Store was a no-go, they told me that they are expecting a lot of the toys as well as other merchandise, but not until next month.

Thanks! I was curious about the Disney store....saves me a trip for a bit!

I'm hoping they get some cool non-toy stuff, too.

Oh, that Wave 2 Jack w/ Coat looks to be a huge improvement as the coat adds bulk to offset the big noggin, and bulks up the arms!

Nice!

I'm still really really hoping we get a Mr. Cotton & Parrot at some point!

No Jeff...you check your Disney Store as well! :evil:




:lol: J/K, some disappointment coming through from making a trek to TRU only to find nothing but a role play sword.

They didn't even have the Thor movie toys either, as I was hoping to pick up the Thor rotocast that seems to be showing up at TRU's only right now.

YES!

Found the 4", 6" and Queen Anne's Revenge playset at Walmart today. Picked up Jack and Blackbeard to start (but will be getting them all)...

Dig 'em! Huge improvement over the Zizzle figures. Zizzle's got better as they went along, but Jack himself always got the worst sculpts. So, it's nice to have a much better Jack Sparrow...excuse me, Captain Jack Sparrow figure!

Still very excited for this line! Can't wait to see what's in store for waves 3 - 5.

Awesome, glad to hear you found them, I guess I'll have to check Walmart this weekend!

Saw 'em at TRU tonight, but since I already had a couple of things in the basket and it looked like they were still being put out, I left them until this weekend. They did look nice, I'll make sure I pick up the 3 3/4" figures at least, those were the only thing out at the time I was there.

Found them at TRU and Wal-Mart this weekend, just picked up Jack and Angelica for now, also got a look at the 6-7" figs, those looked great as well!

I grabbed 4 out of the 5, have checked 3 TRU's so far, nobody has Angelica.

This may have already been covered, but are these in scale with the Zizzle figures?

I have now seen all these figures at both TRU and Wal Mart (plus TRU has 2 different 3 packs at 19.99 each), and I have to say I am 100% disappointed in these.. Everyone of these figures looks like the character is wearing a fatsuit.. I mean all of the heads look like balloons.. I was looking foward to them as the figures themselves look a little more sturdy than the Zizzle, but the head sculpts were just off to me.. I think these are going to get the same response as DCIH, another might have been line.. I think they focused a bit to much on their gimmick efforts- (the black light thing is really pointess) and should have spent more time on their sculpting-- Maybe they will improve with the next wave, but for now Im skipping this line. And the Angelica figure-- (saw a bunch at Wal Mart - none at TRU (except in the 3 pack)) - really generic female face sculpt, a little difficult to even tell she was a woman at first glance (well if you ignore the plastic tinklebobs).
And sorry to say - I didnt think the facial sculpts on the 6" line were that much better- however the bodies looked in better proportion.

Haven't seen them at Target. Got mine mostly from TRU but had to get Angelica from Walmart.
