I thought it was a good movie.   My son hated how they portrayed Thor and he hated that Captain America could lift Thors hammer.  I was OK with both those things.  I thought they had to make Thor out of shape as a reason why he could not defeat Thanos by himself.  I thought they played Captain Marvel the right amount in this movie.   I like how she came in and turned the battle around.   We stayed to the very end of the movie and at the end there is an audio clip played over the Marvel Logo.  What I thought I heard was Iron Man making his mask from the first Iron Man movie. Which seems like the appropriate thing to do as a tribute to retiring his character.   Gamora is dead?  When did she die?  I did not think we saw her one way or the other.  I thought at the end when the Guardians of Galaxy were getting on the ship that they were plotting where to go and get Gamora.   I think in Guardians of the Galaxy III we will see Gamora get rescued and also Loki.   Loki is still alive - he escaped .  And so Vision should be alive also if the Infinity stone was returned in time it would be given to him.   I won't give it 11/10 like jj did, but I might admit after a few drinks that it might be a better movie than Shazam......maybe . And only if jj is buying.

Still have not read this thread except for Brian's reply to me.   So I watched Infinity War with my wife again and we watched Ant Man and Wasp Girl again and we both went and saw Captain Marvel last night.   I was surprised, based on the reviews, I thought it was not going to be a good movie...we thought it was good, simple straight forward back story movie.  Some neat back ground stuff tieing the movies together, the only thing I think you need to know, which I did not, is that Captain Marvel is a really powerful superhero.  So although they lost a lot of superhero power in Infinity Wars, they gained a lot when she comes back.  I would describe her as a mixture of Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk and Thor in a woman's body and a woman's smarts. Going to see Endgame tomorrow.   

So is this the last time that the current actors will be playing these Characters ?

We have not seen Captain Marvel .  Do we need to see that before we see End Game?

jjreason ,  I have not seen it yet or read this thread.  But I did go and see Shazam.  This was one of my favourite characters growing up as a kid.  I think it was because any kid could potential become Shazam unlike other Super Heros.  I am predicting that this movie will get heavy replay in the years to come -  every Christmas just like Die Hard does.  It is a Christmas movie in April, just like Die Hard was a Christmas movie in July.   I can't be certain, since I have not seen Endgame, but I am pretty sure Shazam is a better movie. Mainly because Shazam is more powerful than any of the Avengers.   If you see Shazam, make sure you stay until the very end of the movie, there (2) different little add ons. Most people stayed for the first one, but everyone left and missed the second one.  We are trying to go see Endgame this weekend if we can get good seats.

Wow, that was quick.  They have placed it on hold and will ship it out until later for me.  By the way YAKFACE comes in the same box.

Just figured out I won't be around when they ship it.  Just trying to figure out if I can get them to hold shipping it to me.  Hasbro is trying to see if they can do it.   Not sure how long FEDEX will hold on to it before they ship it back to sender.  At least we know who will be the last person to receive the BARGE.  :P

If these are the final product, it's funny that the cards appear to be scarred/beaten-up.

That's just the new standard for packaging at HASBRO - either bent like hell or extreme shelf wear .  This new standard allows Amazon or Walmart to take your carded figures and stuff them in an envelop and you will no longer be able to return the item for product damage.

If the made exact duplicates on exact duplicate cards - I would buy at least 1 of each.   I don't have vintage figures on card backs so I would be interested in this.   I would rather see Hasbro sell these direct to us like the Vintage Sail Barge.

I saw the Resistance 2-packs at my local Walmart yesterday.  I think they were $17.99.
I also saw a few of the new Archive 6" figures there - Luke, Boba Fett and IG-88.  The coloring of the droid was different than the original black series - more metallic paint applied.

Found all 4 archive figures at my local Walmart too.
Found the same here in Durham aswell.  Canadian Jedi, and Subcoolin I left a email to both of you regarding these.  :u:

Sorry to hear about your furnace Ross.   When we were all over someone mentioned whether you had ever had to get in at the furnace.   The evil furnace gods must have been listening .    Glad to hear the heat is back on.

JJ, you are actually on to exactly what is going on.   The Sandcrawler was just a test to see what kind of demand Disney could get and sell through their regular channels.  Also you may have noticed Mattel no longer has the DC license .   For those of you who have been following the conversations on the darknet, it is clear the conspiracy that Disney Corporate Executives are trying to unleash on the unknowing public.   The closure of TOYSRUS in the states, the lack of a DC Liciense by Mattel,  Ima Lying publicly admitting that Hasbro is no longer making 3.75" figures it all adds up to Disney trying to have complete control of the Toy market and we will only be able to purchase MARVEL toys and 3.75" Star Wars toys from Disney Stores at highly inflated prices. Damn you George - the Empire is upon us.  At least we will all have our Sail Barges to sail off into the sunset in as the era of 3.75" figures by Hasbro ends.

FROM HASBRO:

"In order to reduce cost by 25% we are changing to a 2.8125" scale for all figures and vehicles.  We have decided to go with a smaller scale to save money and to ensure all figures could be used in existing vehicles and play sets.  Although the figures will appear to be Hobbit size in relationship to existing figures this move will help ensure the continuation of the small scale sets for the foreseeable future.  "  - Ima Lying, Head of International & Domestic Marketing Hasbro
