So, what are looking forward to? Hasbro will be releasing a ton of product soon. New Star Wars Black will be hitting (both 3 3/4 and 6"), new GI JOE Retaliation figures, new Transformers and new Marvel Universe. I know it's been a while but the drought is almost over. I know I cannot wait for some of this product and I know my wallet will be burning. We will definitely try and get you, the readers, the most up-to-date reviews and news as possible.
Here is some great news gang, Best Buy will have an exclusive edition of GI JOE Retaliation, the Extended Edition! This was confirmed via Paramount. Sources are revealing that this will involve almost an extra 20 minutes of footage, including the bar scene that was shown in several trailers, as well as other extended action sequences and dialogue. You might want to say it was the movie Jon Chu planned to make. With this extra footage in place we might have a stronger GI JOE movie. Heck I loved what we got in the theater and I feel this is a clear win for both Hasbro, Paramount and the fans. I know I cannot wait for it and I will be at my Best Buy first thing that morning. Credit goes to General Joes.com for the heads up! Yo Joe!!

Well..was the wait worth it? I dig the concept of this series but I am not sold on this figure. I guess I was expecting more with the simple fact it took this long to premier it. It kills me though, Hasbro has potential with this line and I know this line is aimed at collectors. The character selection gets me big time. Why Greedo and not a Cody or a Darth Vader? Man, if I could choose my top 5 figs I can assure you Greedo would not be in it. Still, fans will eat him up and with all my bellyaching, I will buy him as well. I just hope Hasbro realizes the potential that the Black series offers and get us some hard-core fan favs before this line is shelved (hoping for an ultimate Luke Jedi!).

Aha, the smell of fresh new books. Wednesday's can be considered a Geek filled holiday and unlike those other pesky holidays, we get this year round! The thing about Needless is we want that comic shop feel online and we are proud to be geeks. To celebrate lets take a look at what's hitting the shelves tomorrow.
Gentle Giant has opened pre orders for a new Snow Bunny Padme. Long time collectors should remember what transpired with the last Snow Bunny Padme. This guy had one on pre order and CANCELLED!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (Just like Vader). Don't let my mistake from the past hamper your decision today. Yeah I know she is more but damn, that is one good looking statue! Go get her today!

MORNING GLORIES is gearing up for back-to-school! The Image Comics series by Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma is prepping for Fall, just like any diligent student of the prestigious Morning Glory Academy, where nothing is as it seems and a failing grade can mean death.
StarWarsFiguren.com has posted images of the new Kmart exclusive Imperial Scanning Crew set. There will be two to boot! Who said the vintage collection was dead, I know we did not say such a thing. This is an important set gang as this scanning crew member should have been in the legacy collection (as a variant). Discuss this here or in the Forums
