Frontier was excellent. It had its share of cutesy comedy moments but the story and action were good and the quality was excellent. Zero set the bar and frontier was the natural progression. If you know the macross history, it is set in that universe with the same shared history. Also, frontier has an episode that eludes to the zero story.

I'll snag one next time I'm at the decatur WM. They don't seem to sell much SW stuff but I'm sure I made a posting earlier about seeing ROTJ stuff there. I always look at the SW figs but never buy. I noticed they updated the crotch articulation on these. They're pretty tempting so I may start picking up some of the outstanding figures. As it stands now, they're kind of like how the first round of 25th figures were.

Quoted for truth. I picked up two ST and SE. I left two ST and the rest of the wave there for tankers. I also went to the Northpoint Target and saw 4 ST's that some jackass (again) swapped out for 4 Bravo Team figures. Of course Target is none the wiser. My wife was with me, and even she said this is getting ridiculous.

I know most don't care about (or even like) the Night Raven, but I went to AJ Wright in Tucker and found one. But here's the thing. The store was in complete chaos. Big surprise right? Well I found the Night Raven (the last one) and a HOH Crimson Guard, but neither had a price sticker. I stopped one of the employees to ask for prices on them, since it was last of each one. He scoured the shelf for a while, couldn't find anymore (as I told him he wouldn't), and pulled out 2 price tags off of his cart. Both price tags said $2.99, but he manually wrote his name and $9.99 on the NR and $4.99 on the CG. Which was cool because all toys were 30% off. When I got to the register the wonderful cashier completely ignored the hand written stuff on the tags, rang it up for $2.99 each and gave me 35% off!!!! :D It came up to $4.13 with tax :D

At the target at N. Druid Hills lucked out and scored the LAST Snake Eyes wave 3 and boy is he AMAZING! Had one new wave stormy and a bunch of wave 2, also had 2 ice cutters (should we still report those) and 1 of each mechs...

Another day another interesting trip... Went to the Ross at Piedmont/Sidney Marcus and found they had 2 Sand Serpents, right behind them was a Rage and a Black Hiss (Checked serial #) Also had 3 Mars 3-packs and a 12' Dusty and Snowjob, all passes for me!

Went to the Marshalls next door and low and behold they still had a decent amount of ROC and 25th stuff there! Scored a HOH silver faced Viper, and another bazooka trooper for $6 yes please! Left 3 HOH crimson guards and a HOH bat, handful of silly ROC Alpha vehicles, and a bunch of 25th ann wave 10 (wraith wave) right by the cashiers.

Listened to my intuition and wound up stopping into Oxford's comic book/collectables store on Piedmont and after searching the main figure room, I asked the owner if they had any other joe stuff? She said check out the comic room and low and behold they a box of WAVE 4! Picked up the only Low-Light and left behind one Shadow Tracker, 2 Skydives, and like 3 Destros! Low-light is an amazing score! Had to pay $11.95 for him but I figured it was well worth it to check him off my list...

After that, went to the Target across from Lennox/Phipps mall and found they have replenished their Joe Figs with a bunch of earlier waves and some of the new figs (3 wav 3 stormys and a bunch of colonial marines duke.) Also had a mangled carded Cobra Commander and a single Alley Viper which I wound up hiding for someone lucky (Bottom row of Joe figs ALL the way at the back!) wound up purchasing the last set of Transformers RTS Jazz and Tracks! Also picked up the Hot Rod/Cyclonus 2 pack (1 left) however lots of Fallbacks, Skullgrins, and the other typical classics pegwarmers...


Overall amazing haul and I hope some of my provided info can motivate/save you guys a trip! Good Hunting!

Seems to be a lot of you guys checking out the Dunwoody/Sandy Springs area? Im trying to gauge a central location for a meet up/get together once a month. Say at a Taco Mac or something to have a beer(optional of course) and geek out.

I live in Cumming and drive all the way to North Ave for work. I am good anywhere close to the route from Cumming to downtown Atlanta. :-)

Thursdays are a pretty good night for me, I will say I'm a nite-owl so I can party pretty late, but I'm open for whatever the group needs!

So can some of our activities include showing off pics of our collections and a swap meet?

that was what I was thinking too, i dont know how many of you guys customize stuff but we almost always get extra figures we dont want/need and I think a swap meet would be cool for the group. The downside is that complicates a meeting location. I used to meet with the Atlanta Area Aquarium Association and they had a nice set up at an Athens Pizza, really cool staff gave us their entire back room to wheel and deal fish, watch slides, and shoot the shit. I dont know how many places in the Dunwoody/SandySprings/Metro/Perimeter area that will be cool with us spreading out. Suggestions are welcome Taco Mac was what I suggested initially and but the only store I know of with a "back room" for groups is up in Alpharetta and the management is less than fun to deal with.

the other place Ive been toying with is the gaming shop I used to work at called Phoenix Games its in Buford. Im good friends with the owner and I cant see him having a problem with us hosting a community event. You can eat food there sit around, they have drinks and snacks and of course hobby supplies. The question is, is Buford too far away for you metro guys to drive say once a month. I go up there from Sandy Springs at least 2x a month and its at best a 30 minute drive.

Hit up 3 targets as well: N. Druid hills had a bunch of wave 2 with 2 wave 3 Stormys and a space marine Duke. Had one RTS Bumblebee and a bunch of Skullgrins, WFC Cliffjumper, and other random stuff all pass!

Sidney Marcus target just had a bunch of wav 2 Joes but, was surprised to see generations Blurr for the first time out in the wild, alas already have him but he is a GREAT figure!

Finally ended up at Target on Peachtree across from Lennox Mall: Bunch of wav 2 Joes with a smattering of wav 3 stormy and duke, also Cobra carded CC is still there and lo and behold the AV I left for someone is still there!?

Found Low-Light & SkyDive today in a revision case at Target. I left some Shock Troopers behind & Alley Vipers. Sending you that pm Bandit.

Got that. Thanks. I've been ill so I wasn't able to take advantage of the news. I appreciate the notice though.

At Gainesville Target tonight I found one POC wave 3 Snake Eyes and got it. Last and only time I saw one was a month ago when I didn't have the funds. they had duke and ss but no shock troopers. but I have two of those already so the Snake Eyes was a welcome find.

with how cruddy the selections' been at retail lately it felt like a moral victory. lol

Any sign of the current Star Wars wave with Luke (Death Star), Han (Yavin Ceremony) and R5-D4?

I saw two sand serpents and a rage at the Ross at Lindbergh. The target across the street has a wave 3 SE left on the end-cap. I saw remnants of wave 3 target sets all day (gliders and rams). I did get lucky and found a single twin cannon at l5p which made me very happy. Also saw a lot of the WM 2 packs hanging around. The Ross in Cobb and perimeter have a bad repacker problem. The ROC repacks at perimeter were just sad. Oh well, they do it to themselves if they can't tell the figure has been swapped out.

I thought the current wave was the AOTC wave with Mace Windu & Jango Fett, seen that one a few times at Target but not the Luke/Han one yet.

Also picked up a few twin battle cannon packs at the Perimeter Mall Ross yesterday and the Ewok Glider battle pack.

They also had the crappy glider, but no trouble bubbles or RAM.

I've got a pool tournament to play in tonight but Sospecho will represent Poncey Highlands and Inman Park!

On another note, Joelanta is coming March 20th. The site is www.joelanta.com. Larry Hama will be the special guest which is pretty awesome since this is such a small show. The dealer turnout is a mix of 3 3/4 and 12" and they've got diorama contests as well. A great place to swap with other collectors or look for hard to find accessories.

Last year was my first attending and I got a dealer table. I had an absolute blast and moved a decent amount of toys. Single tables are $60 and a 10ftx10ft booth with three tables is $170. I had the single table last year and it was pretty cramped. If anyone is interested in sharing a booth, let me know! You also get companion passes for $5 bucks too so it's a good way of getting extra people in. The show proceeds go to charity as well.

MU
JLU
DCUC
Marvel Legends
Marvel Select
DC Direct
and the Marvel movie lines
IM2
Thor
Captain America
also ME compatible 1/18th stuff (BBI, 21 Century, PTE etc)

But some of the other guys collect Transformers, Halo, JLU and a few other lines I can't remember.

Question though:

Do you guys just collect/swap Joes or other lines too?

Marvel Universe, I have most of the collection, excluding a few figures, and its one of the few lines I buy almost everything of. I like only have 1-2 variants of one character at the most though. If a new and better figure comes out I scrap the old one for parts.

Star Wars, I cherry pick. Mostly new Jedi's, Bounty Hunters, the odd Trooper, last ones I bought were Shak Ti and Ackbar.

Gi-Joe, Mainly POC stuff everything else is fodder to fuel my Resolute/POC styling I do for my own figures.

Transformers, Movie figures, Classics, and Beast Wars no vintage right now. Some Cybertron/Armada stuff for custom fodder.

Marvel movie lines, again I cherry pick.Im not a completist but I do like to Army build if I REALLY like the figure.

and random 3 3/4 stuff for fodder like PTE, BBI, etc, Im a Hasbro guy through, dyed, and blue. When Mattel gets their shit together and makes decent 3 3/4 figures ( with Avatar articulation ) I'll be on board.
