Thanks for letting me know. I don't check my home email that often, but I did get the notification as well!

It's on my pull list. I'm not expecting to love it -- I just hope that I don't hate it. Sook will make it more palatable, for sure.

Hey Retroman.

A long, long time ago I was temporarily relocated to Leesburg, Virginia and worked out of Chantilly. Leesburg has grown considerably since I was there.

So it looks like Tales from the Dark Multiverse is DC's answer to What-IF? Sheesh! Only took them a little over 40 years! That said -- I'd probably prefer to read new takes on classic DC stories than anything they are currently publishing. That continual fluidity of the DC Universe is a turn off. All these years after Crisis of Infinite Earths -- and DC still doesn't know what they want their universe to be.

Still haven't seen it, but Berlanti and friends are superb at using interesting characters to develop mediocre superhero TV shows.

I know it got very low ratings -- I think the worst ever for an Arrowverse show. I would have watched out of curiosity, but forgot it was on. I'll give it a try, but expectations area very, very low.

Berlanti has to put his leftwing political stamp on every show. I still like Chilling Tales of Sabrina -- despite his influence.

I guess this is as close as I'll get to a 6-inch Thunderbird.  gah.gif

In the thread at Fwoosh, people commented that it was down before, and then went up again.  Apparently, that has happened before with other figures. I believe Amazon will explicitly state when an item is sold out. I don't know if they are trying to increase production based on pre-orders or if there is another reason for it.

Alpha Flight boxed set isn't showing. I waited to long to pre-order!  cursing.gif

WTF?! The cached page states that it won't even be released until December 1!

Edit: It was already in my cart at Amazon.com, so I pushed the order through. Don't know if it will actually be redeemed or not. It's odd, though, that the page was unavailable -- maybe it's a temporary glitch.

I just can't with those streamlined New Mutant uniforms.

I don't know when or if they appeared in comics, but the old school uniforms would make more sense to me. And Dani should have her deerskin boots and turquoise belt. I don't need all of the accessories they are including -- though I can see how others may.

Ah well, I can use the money I'll be saving for Alpha Flight boxed set.

Finally saw 80th anniversary Thor at a local Wal-Mart.  There were only two left. Cap was in about two months ago. Maybe I can expect Iron Man in November?

Went to a Gamestop outside of the local Walmart and picked up Silver Samuarai. Then went into Wally and saw it for $5 less.  Angry

That Wally also had the Colossus/Juggernaut 2-pack -- but it's $60. I still have that Marvel Select Jugs -- and I can wait for a single card Colossus. No deal!

Natasha looks good. Red, hair is back -- and check out the widow's bit bracelets. To her right is Red Guardian (with the beard).  In the red above her head is Taskmaster.

Does this make a classic Guardians of the Galaxy and Inhumans (the ones who didn't get single-carded) more of a possibility?!
