OAFE Update for Thursday, May 13

Geeze it's hot. The worst thing about summer? When the heat starts getting to your toys and the Annual Soft Plastic Dive-Off begins. Just remember: keep some cushiony stuff in front of your shelves. Pillows, folded blankets, whatever. Stay safe.

While out last Marvel Legends review may have been a joke, this one's not. Judging by the fact that we started looking at this series in December and it's now May, you might have an idea of how rare this figure is. http://www.oafe.net/yo/ml5_blade.php

Rustin provided your email preview for last week, and the rest of the world learned about it on Saturday. Don't you suddenly feel special? Check out ToyBiz's triumph at http://www.oafe.net/rustin/smtvl.php

Now that the Hellboy figures are finally being restocked, we felt it was time to examine one of the film's villains - evil will always win, because good is dumb. Don't forget to read the alt tags - they're lovingly crafted for your pleasure. http://www.oafe.net/yo/mez_hbk.php

May Madness continues full-tilt. We're in Round 2 now, and the battles are really starting to heat up. If you haven't voted yet, you still have a few days to do so. Find out all about May Madness at http://www.oafe.net/articulation/

Remember when McFarlane Toys were on top of the industry? Man, the new Shrek figures will make you miss those days. The sheer amount of crap being produced with the Shrek logo on it is an embarassment, and just shows how much restraint Todd showed all those years ago. Who would have expected the new line to be such a step backwards? http://www.oafe.net/yo/shrek2pib.php

Convention season's getting under way, and the guys over at action-figure.com have once again started their list of all the summer con exclusives. Head over to http://www.oafe.net/cgi-bin/forums/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST;f=2;t=254 to find out what toys you'll be paying exorbitant sums of cash for on eBay.

Once you've checked out the list, head over to http://www.oafe.net/cgi-bin/forums/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST;f=7;t=23 for the OAFEicial SDCC Trading post. We've made it a sticky, so it'll be at the top until the con's over - tell people what you want. Help people find what they need. If you're going to the con, please stop by to help your fellow fans out. Community!

Finally, our week draws to a close. So sad. what better way to send it out than with a giant mutant lizard? No, it's not Rustin's review again, it's the distinguished competition. http://www.oafe.net/yo/matbatcrc.php
