Oh man, I just tallied up how many preorders I have for the next few months and I definitely need to cancel some stuff, probably most of the $800 worth of mythic legions on bbts

I had $450 from Amiami in April, but then a bomb went off and split that order all over the summer.

Edit: And immediately after posting that I check my email and see Mafex Spider-Gwen, the only remaining item in April, has also been delayed.

Have a feeling Eternals and Shang-Chi are going to be boring duds. New Shang-Chi Legends have the same boring aesthetic as the Eternals wave.

Yeah this Shang Chi itself is very boring to me compared to the comic version we had not that long ago in the Demogoblin wave. I feel like the most popular thing in the Eternals wave is people just want a figure of Kumail.

I dig Shang-Chiís outfit but I was kinda hoping for something a little funkier given the comicís early 70s Kung-Fu origins. Itís not bad though, itís more or less what youíd expect as a live-action adaptation of his modern outfit. Itís just a bit plain.

Does that Shang-Chi have butterfly joints? It doesn't look like he has them. He's looking like a real downgrade from the comics based version we got just recently but that's MCU figures for ya

Any other fans of Atlanta (the TV series)? Pretty soon we'll have 3/4 of the cast in 6" format:

Earn Marks (Donald Glover) -- Star Wars Black Series Lando Calrissian (Solo movie wave)
Van (Zazie Beetz) -- Marvel Legends Domino (Deadpool 2 movie wave)
Paper Boi (Brian Tyree Henry) -- Marvel Legends Phastos (Eternals movie wave)

And I feel like it is only a matter of time before Lakeith Stanfield appears in something where he gets an action figure made.

Is there any discussion or chatter anywhere about the Spero Warriors line? I just saw TCP list them for preorder and they look good

https://www.thechosenprime.com/spero-studios.html?fbclid=IwAR2st4zdBrPCcxLG_zAkPCcKXf3CVQIk6N4FImfcLlVMf8SWy6M3lx9Q3as

And at under $40 per figure they're affordable!

Possibly but I'd wager McF is going to drop a SS wave with a BAF of that dude.

Got paid for some more TFs I sold so I shipped those and bought the PowerCon Slammurai/Snake set. That leaves a single 3 pack to track down and of course the only one for sale is $700. According to the checklist i have 170 remaining MOTUC pieces to buy including beats and vehicles. I'm watching about 30 on ebay that are all $50 and under loose on Ebay. There's a depressing number of them that are hitting $250+ loose.

The Godzilla MonsterArts are really nice. I think this is the same sculpt as the Kou Kyou Kyoku they put out a while back, just without all the light and sound gimmicks. I have the overheating version of the same era Godzilla from Vs. Destoroyah and I loving love it.

Apparently the 4H share or shared share space with a set / prop person for SNL. They asked to borrow the toys for the skit. Everything in the cabinets are the paint masters.

Also, Cornboy is officially creepy. First he was looking for "a cake" on reddit (IDK what this means, but was apparently posted in a swingers forum and now is promoting someone who is clearly much younger than hims onlyfans...

Still pretty cool toys though. Just wish he was more discreet with his personal proclivities.

That reminds me that I recently started seeing a buddy of mine again that had been playing stay at home dad since the pandemic started. Iíve been forgetting to ask if he ever got around to taking pictures of his friends toy collection. Supposedly he has all the original Star Wars, Transformers, and MotU in their packages.

I might be able to share if I pretend I didnít already admit whoís collection Iím talking about in the past.

Sorry to hear yours is lost in the ether, I hope they help. They use to be quite great once upon a time, I recall a story of a kid who way back in the day saved up enough to get four Hiss tanks and sent in the stuff. Now it shipped but went missing, the kid contacted Hasbro and they said no problem, shipped out exactly what he ordered.
Later the original Hiss tanks showed up as well so he ended up with eight of them.
