I haven’t had a chance to see either movie yet, but I saw this on a white board at work and it cracked me up.

As I was running errands over the weekend I stopped be a recently stocked Toys R Us and lucked into the other new heroes in The Batman line- The Superman, The Flash and The Martian Manhunter.

 We had carded pictures of these figures up on the front page last week, but I hadn’t seen any loose pictures of the gang all together.   So here is our The Batman Justice League so far:


They’re a handsome looking group, aren’t they?   Now we just need Green Arrow!

If you add in Batgirl and Robin it looks like this:


Batgirl looks great with them… Robin looks like he’s from another line.  Memo to Mattel: Make a smaller Robin.  This one is OK for that new 7" Line, but NOT for the 5" line.


Right now the Green Lantern and Hawkman are mainly being found at Walmart and Superman, Flash and Martian Manhunter are being found at Toys R Us.

I think the addition of these heroes in a consistent style will bring more collectors to this line.  I’m curious to see what new characters will be shown next month at Toy Fair.

Really HasbroCollectors.com?   Seriously?

So just before the holidays I placed a fairly large order of Star Wars figures and a few Marvel Legends I was missing because I had two codes that when used together gave me about 25% off my full order.

I got the majority of the order in one box, about 10 figures.  Because my order was over $50 I was to receive a $10 gift card for the site.   It showed up two days later with one more figure, the A Wing pilot.  He came in a much smaller box, about the size of a carded Star Wars figure.  I say ABOUT the size of of a carded Star Wars figure because the box is really about a half inch SMALLER than a carded Star Wars figure.  But that didn’t stop them from jamming it in there anyway.

Now I’m not a big MOC guy, especially when it comes to Star Wars, but doesn’t it seem a bit silly in 2007 that you would bend up cards while you had the word "collector" in the name?   Why would you even have that size of boxes on hand?   Dumb.  



Again, it doesn’t make that much difference to me.  I’ve already opened him.  But there are people in this hobby, and most of you probably know one or two that it would be a BIG deal if they got something like this in the mail. It just doesn’t make a lot of sense to me that a group created to cater to collectors would do something like that. 

File under "S" for silly.
