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

Didn't find any new Black Series in either size/scale, but I did score the four new Mission Series 2-pack sets. For the level of articulation and the price per figure (you get two figures for $9.99, making each character roughly the same price as your average Saga-line figure from 2002-2004 and the Original Trilogy Collection basic carded figures that immediately followed) they're a good deal, plus the Clone Troopers and Battle Droids included make for good army builder/background/diorama fodder. They're not exquisitely detailed but they have a remarkable amount of detail and apps for a figure that's made of decidedly inferior plastic and aimed much more at kids and budget-conscious parents than adult collectors.

The Vader/Seeker Droid is my least favorite of the four sets, but even it has its charms and was worth picking up.
