    Guys, I know wrong section - but hopefully major exposure if you want to join in.

    There is a live chat with them right now, if you are interested and I am participating with Brad Goff who worked on them.

    Thanks for the heads up, though.

    It's only just finishing....

    1) They worked from Stills and have not seen any footage.
    2) The edition sizes have been cut , to make them more collectible.
    3) They think Brandon looks good !
    4) Only pre-orders being taken at present , as they are finalising packaging, delivery costs.
    5) Brad Goff is still doing the art for the boxes.

    You have to appreciate that I was trying to ask SR questions inbetween LOTR & Narnia fans !

    I thought Spider-Man 3 was cancelled, and they're going to skip right to Spider-Man 4.

    I know this is sort of a flame worthy remark but....these days kids dont want to play with those characters. Probably a lack of attention span for the youth.

    I sure could go for a Jimmy, Lois or Perry action figure; that'd be cool!

    Maybe the Jimmy toy could come with a mini "snap-shot" camera, that actually flashed and the kid could use, it'd have pre-sorted pics of Superman in action poses. And the picture could go into a little toy Daily Planet newspaper that reads "Superman to the Rescue."

    Why?

    A Perry action figure could be awesome and the Lois Lane figure could have an action powered upskirt feature. Just imagine if you got the Kitty/Lois deluxe set...:)

    Yes, they are priced. They are £195 sterling.

    They cant give quotes on shipping yet thpough, as they dont know size and weights of packaging yet.

    Oh, thanks again for the info and finding the price. But I am saddened. I will never be able to afford any of those. :(
