All the new Spidey stuff has taken up the shelf space of other actions figures in the toy aisles. I saw a big bin of DC Justice League Unlimited toys heavily discounted the other day but managed to avoid the wrath of Kim by restraining myself. Still I’d like to get the GL set sometime soon to add to the figures on top of the monitor. (Would also like to get the other 6“ B5 figures (and Firefly ones) to go with the Sheridan figure in the office too.)
Oh well, let’s get a job first that pays me to ‘research’ pop-culture.
