By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 7, 2013

I'm still here! Q&A is back with your questions, and apparently you really want to talk about Vintage and 2013 and the lack of new stuff on the shelves. You also want to talk about real vintage figures, and of course which 2013 new figures are different enough to make you mad because you have excellent taste. All this and crazy ramblings from me, after the jump.  If you have questions for next week (that aren't about the 2013 line) please be sure to send 'em in!
