Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

About two weeks left to go until the New York Toy Fair kicks off! We should commence a countdown....I hope some very cool news about our favorite franchises gets unveiled up there because the current state of a couple of them feels downright anemic.

With a brand new line of SW figures delayed until some time much later this year and the first waves of 2013 Clone Wars and Movie Heroes having an as-yet-undetermined release date in the United States and the rest of North America the Star Wars line might have a slow first few months of the new year until things start to get rolling. I hope the Hasbro people have something really terrific up their sleeve and not just a display full of Fighter Pods and SW Angry Birds for people to grumble over.

There's news of a special, $35 price range Deluxe 12" figure where you can transform Anakin into Darth Vader and it supposedly won a prize at the UK Toy Fair. That'd be kinda cool, but the line needs more than one deluxe 12" figure and a handful of subpar, poorly articulated 12" characters to keep excitement going until the new 3.75" figure line debuts.
