He was the only one at TRU and it was during that 2 for $9 sale they had a few weeks ago. I love him so
Argh! He sure wasn't at my TRU during that sale. I had to settle for a Pit Commando and Para Viper (which I already have quite a few of from the 25th anniversary line). Most stores near me have nearly empty pegs for the Movie Joes so hopefully a restock brings in CS Snake Eyes.
One of my friends from work told me that Playmates was going out of bizness that Jakks maybe getting the Ninja Turtle line like they got the line for Tinkerbell now. So I don't know how Playmates is doing Michale Jackson.
MY LONG TIME FRIEND THAT I HAVEN'T SEEN FOR 2 YEARS.
It was a pretty expensive week for me, I gotta say. First up is Sideshow's Lando Calrissian. I paid $82 which isn't horrible but isn't super cheap either. I originally passed on this item but it kept on tugging at me after. Empire Strikes Back being my favorite Star Wars movie and Lando just being Lando, I couldn't resist any longer.
Here's a comparison with Hasbro's 12" from the mid-late 90s:
I mean... hands down winner right?
In the same purchase, I got something else that was nudging at me after I passed on it. Henry Jones Sr. by Sideshow. I bartered this down to $82 as well. ($164 for both after tax)
As if Lando and Doctor Jones wasn't enough, I picked something else up this week. I didn't have time to take extensive photos so here's a peak...
This is Hot Toys' third version of THE JOKER in 1/6th scale (twelve inch) and it's probably one of the finest. It comes with the head and outfit of Joker as police officer, though you need to buy a naked 1/6th scale body to put it on. This was $180 after tax. I could have gotten it cheaper if I pre-ordered somewhere. The naked body figure probably costs $35 if I can find one, so it's almost like paying $100 per figure. That would be the best way to rationalize the price.
Love the DX series. Here's hoping they put that kind of time and effort into the forthcoming Prince of Persia Line. I swore I wouldn't go the 12" figure route, but here we are. I want to pick up one of those Indy's.
