Right, and the existence of boy bands renders all other musical expression devoid of artistic value. I honestly wonder what attracted some people to comic book superheroes in the first place.

The point is that not all people who spray graffiti on walls are artists. Some are just vandals.

I like cartoons.

I like murals too. They look really neat and beautiful. Graffiti on the side of the road that is just letters and swears and stuff is kind of annoying but they have some very beautiful murals in Boston. I like pictures of oceans and sunsets and stuff. That's very cool.

Just BECAUSE it's graffiti doesn't mean it has artistic value.

Living in Toronto I see graffiti everywhere and while there are talented people doing it, 90% of it is just vandalism.

Hey guys,
Why are we ruining such good news with such negativity? 6 months ago people would have been dying to hear this news! I have the Vig 3-pack but this makes me excited that i'll be able to get the Jim Lee huntress and Shade at retail! :-)

I didn't realize there was any negativity, but off topic? For sure.

The best part Vigilante reappearing is that we are only about six months away from Volcana showing up again.

Did you say you found a BTAS Catwoman? That's a pretty old figure to find. Did you mean a Catwoman figure from The Batman animated series? I head some of the "exclusive" SDCC ones showed up at a chain called "Value City" that is not in my region, but if they are also in Family Dollar I might have to go look for one.

No, he's talking about the TNBA version of Catwoman. FD stores have had the orange striped version for about a year now and the "normal" black costume/blue face version has been showing up recently, too. $3 each carded like the silver Batgirl in this photo...

...the 2 pack paint jobs on Two-Face and Joker have been showing up in these, too. The checklist on the back lists Nightwing, Robin and Batgirl so we've been holding our breath that when they show up they'll all be in "normal" colors...

Oh, right, I see. Thanks for clearing that up. I've seen some of those at Big Lots too.

I hadn't thought of that. Darn it! Now you've given me hope. And in this hobby, hope is not good. Cause it usually leads to disappointment!

Dammit, I have one within walking distance of my office, but I really hate that place (the last time I was there, they were selling eight cans of spray paint to two teenagers in front of me).

Yeah, I despise stores that let people buy what they want, too.

:?

Anyway, I'm stopping by Family Dollar this afternoon, anyway, to look for some $2 Tele-Viper army builders. I'll look around for new (old) JLU product while I'm there.


Like others have noted, selling spray paint to those under 18 is illegal in some cities, due to it being sniffed, and used for graffiti. That was his point.

You rather enjoy being snarky, and for no reason, it seems. Give it a rest, it's tiring.

Yeah, I'm thinking Volcana might be a single.

Well, it's not like Michelangelo began his career by painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, you know? Besides, I'm sure someone, somewhere considers Julian Beever's work to be "vandalism", as well. It's the blanket dismissal that I find puzzling.

Hilarious. :D

Hit a couple more dollar stores yesterday to see if I could help anyone out, but nothing out of the ordinary was on the pegs.
