That's a rip off, no doubt about it.


Both clutch and SE have no elbows and t-crotched.

Flint on bike has no elbows either.

I was going to grab the vehicle with clutch just for clutch when I realized that, I'll just find one of the older ones on evilbay.

Eh I'll between this, avengers being so repetitive, and star wars lacking in shipping I will be saving tons of money this year. Wonder if they weill screw up Marvel Universe too.

Yeah, at this point, MU might be the only 3.75 line that can redeem Hasbro this year.

At least we have Legends. :?

So the females are exclusives this year, kinda sexist, little boys need to be learn that female figures are just a cool as male and parents need to get with the program too. It's 2012.
End of rant.

Lady Jaye is the same body as the new Renegades Scarlett figure, which is odd. The body is a bit skinny and more cartoonish for the movie line.

Love the yellow Jinx as well as the 2 SDCC versions, not looking forward to dealing with that Hasbro booth again though. Can someone explain whats up with the "Kim Arashikage" please. I'll be disappointed if the SDCC figures don't list her as Jinx.

The last time I was at that booth, it was to get Movie Destro, so if I go again this year it'll be a nice symmetry.

I didn't find it that bad, to be honest. At least I got what I wanted; I couldn't even get in the line to get in the line for the Mattel booth.

Mattel now does a pre-order for SDCC making it much nicer. Last year trying to get Zarana was a nightmare, the line filled in less then a minute and they were not letting people line up outside the booth then people were just standing around blocking the isles. After a quite a while the got smart and allowed us to form a line along the back wall of the convention center, but then people were cutting and it was just a mess. Not to mention the mass confusion to get the time tickets before the hall even opened. In the end I got what I wanted and meet some cool people in line but it was not well thought out on Hasbro/SDCC part.

How does Preview Night work into things? Can exclusives be gotten there, or do you just get a ticket or something to stand in the exclusive lines later?

I missed it in '09 and that's what made getting into any of the exclusive lines that weekend such a blasted nightmare.

Hasbro's exclusives are available on Preview night, which is when I was planning to get them. No go, dealers waited near the both and when the floor opened they swarmed it. I got to the booth within 2 minutes of opening and it was full and they were not letting anyone else in. The line was full on closed for the night! It was awful! I'd love to see Hasbro do a pre order like Mattel.

The movie stuff is okay, although the only figure I'm interested in is Bruce Willis for the novelty factor.

The vintage style Night Viper is probably the best surprise yet. He should prove a popular army builder.

Lastly, still no Kwinn. I'd rather have him released in Slaughter-level numbers than not at all, which seems to be the case so far.

Yeah, I'd really like to get a Kwinn figure made. I think a lot've people assumed that he'd be the SDCC exclusive this year. I don't care how we get him. Just so long as we do. I wanted that Data Viper they showed last year too. :oops:

Shes a figure I was going to skip-- so not that big a deal to me-- I may pick her up from the website afterwards- but if I dont get her- wouldnt be a big loss...

Now Red Jinx is going to bother me If I dont get her..

She's not an exclusive, she's in Wave 3. The Club must have mixed up their info.
