Re: Everything but Gree

ok, so i wanted some input on these mighty muggs. is this just more crap we're supposed to buy, or are people getting into these? like i kinda wanna pick up a stormtrooper for my focus collection... maybe a maul, cuz let's face it, he's just kickass.

is anyone else picking these up and have an opinion on them? i was maybe thinking about picking one up for my 3 year old son. are they heavy or hard, etc... and not really a kids toy?

Re: Everything but Gree

Anyone still looking for Wave 1 of the new figures, hasbrotoyshop.com has all of them for sell right now, except the Tri-Droid.

As for the Mighty Muggs, I passed on them, so I can't really give you any feedback on them... just personal preference.... I prefer the more realistic and articulated figures.... the Mighty Muggs look like just big blobs of plastic to me.... I'm not knocking it if anyone else gets them, just like I said before, personal preference.

Re: Everything but Gree

I bought the Vader & Fett Mighty Muggs. They're pretty cool.
Basically they're Hasbro's take on doing Kid Robot style rotocast figures, (only these cost a lot less!) and are just something unique looking to add to your SW collection.
I think Yoda is planned, so I'll get him, too.

I found the new comic book 2-packs at Memorial City Target, not much else new on this side of town.

Re: Everything but Gree

Hasbrotoyshop.com still has Wave 1, now including the Tri-Droid, but they're out of the Kashyyyk Trooper. They even have the figures from previous waves with the stands now, if anyone is interested.

New collector in Houston

Hi, I’m new in the Houston Area (Spring, TX). Just moved from Michigan because job relocation and I’m loving it.
I’m a big Star Wars fan and dedicated collector, mostly Star Wars 3 ¾ but lately in to 1:6 (12”) figures too (Star Wars, DC, Marvel, Hollywood, etc). I was wondering if there are local comic stores or flea markets around Houston where to buy action figures beside the chain stores like Target, Wal-Mart, TRU, KB, etc. I have found two flea markets so far: Armadillo market place and Traders Village Houston but I have not found any comic stores; do you guys have any suggestions, are the flea markets worth it?

On the finding notes, I saw the new comic packs: Lt. Jundland & Deena Shan, Mouse & Basso in Disguise, Clone Commando & Super Battle Droid and the new Evolution sets: The Fett Legacy, The Jedi Legacy, The Sith Legacy @ Wal-Mart Super Center in the Woodlands.

I’m looking for AT-TP Walker, General Grievous' Starfighter and Kashyyyk Troopers

Re: New collector in Houston

Welcome Master Chichifo!

I also live in Spring (moved here 3 years ago from Seattle for same reason as you!) and we love the area. I primarily collect prop replics and statues/busts, so I haven't spent a lot of time looking for figures.

There is a good comic book store on 1960 near stubner-airline called Bedrock Comics. They have a nice store, with a lot of Gentle Giant and SS type statues. They may have figures as well, but I cannot remember.

Good luck and welcome to Spring!

Re: New collector in Houston

Hi, the comic store I go to is Bedrock City comics. The one I go to is the one on westheimer and when I'm working the one on W Bay Area. The closest one to you is probably on 4683 FM 1960 W.

Yes they have action figures and if you don't find something they will call the other 3 stores to see if they have it. And if they do they will send it to that store.

Re: New collector in Houston

Anyone who still needs a Hologram Vader there were plenty at Bunker Hill TRU this afternoon. I scored the last new Evolution packs, though(still looking for the Sith one).

Meyer Park Wal-Mart had one Gree left but plenty of the Galactic Heroes Millennium Falcon.

Re: Wave 2

Hello,

I know everyone is looking for wave 2, but you should check the clearance section at Wal-mart, some great deals

the wal-mart exclusive 2pks - 3.50
the wal-mart cantina band - 5.50
the wal-mart galactic heroes cantina - 5.50
the wal-mart marvel legends 2pk - 3.50

Good Luck,

P.S. by the way those looking for GI Joe 25th ann. the new wave 2 is out at Wal-mart, good news, but they have raised the price from 4.88 to 5.44.

Re: Wave 2

Has anyone else come across the Maris Brood figure with flesh colored skin? I thought they were all coming as white colored skin. I have both and will post a pic as soon as I take one!

Where did you pick it up? The Sith set is the only one I'm missing.

I found two of the 501st Super Articulated troopers at the Deer Park Walmart. Nothing else new there, or at the Walmart and Target in Kemah.
