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

Can we post other toys? Seeing cooleddie's stuff makes me feel a little better about my American Girl collection:





I have quite a few Star Trek figures from the Playmates era.

I collected Smurfs when I was a kid, but my nephew took them from me when he was little! My sister returned some of them to me- I need to take photos of them.

My mother loved the American Girl dolls. That's a nice collection you have there. Is the one on the lower row and on the far right the girl from World War II? The girl with the round glasses? My mom loved that particular character.

The new Marvel Legends Steve Rogers is horribly out of scale, but it's still a really nice looking figure.

Yep, that's Molly. She's my mom's favorite.

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

Here's pics of some of my Vintage Collection figures. These were taken four months ago and I've acquired many, many more in the line since then. My grand total of Vintage action figures(2010-present) is now approaching 125. As of right now there are only four figures in the entire line that I don't have:

VC28 Wedge Antilles
VC50 Han Solo(Bespin Outfit)
VC66 Salacious Crumb(2011 San Diego Comic Con exclusive)
VC67 Mouse Droid(2011 San Diego Comic Con exclusive)

Dang. That Tony Stark is a spitting image of Robert Downey, Jr. It's like he's ready to pop off the screen, make some sarcastic comments and nail all my female friends.

I know, right? Here's a closeup if you truly want to appreciate just how great it is:

Wow. That makes almost every STAR WARS figure or doll I've ever owned look like a stick figure drawing. If I keep staring into toy Tony's eyes I'll have blood-curdling nightmares.

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

Strangely enough, I have a single Star Wars action figure. Grand Admiral Thrawn, who stands atop one of my smaller bookcases, psychic salamander-cat thing draped on his shoulder.

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

I never found the 1998 Grand Admiral Thrawn. I suppose I could always get him for about ten bucks off of eBay but some Expanded Universe characters just didn't interest me when they were first released as action figures. If Hasbro redid Thrawn in, say, the Vintage Collection with up-to-date sculpting and articulation I'd buy one in a heartbeat. My interest in EU characters isn't anywhere near as high as some other collectors', but I like them a lot more than I used to...the brand-new Darth Malgus and recent Bastila Shan are evidence of my renewed interest in non-movie and non-television characters. Ten years ago I'd have skipped both and never given my decisions a second thought, but in this era of vastly improved likenesses and poseability(not to mention much cooler packaging) I always give EU toys at least a second look even if I'm not much of a fan of the graphic novels or books they come from.

They did redo Thrawn, in a comic pack with Talon Karde a couple years ago. I have him.

Pics of it right here

Nothing against action figures--but ship miniatures seem to get no love.

I meant a Basic, single-carded figure like in 1998. I didn't like some of the Comic Book two-packs...I own some of them, but I was very particular about which sets I purchased and don't own too many of them. There were too many with silly kitbashed characters almost nobody had ever heard of. Tons of repaints and leg and head swaps that just didn't interest me all that much. I saw that Thrawn and liked it better than the 1998 figure, but at the time he was released I just wasn't terribly into the HEIR TO THE EMPIRE saga. In the years since that Comic 2-pack hit pegs I've grown to like the Zahn novels more and I'd get a new Thrawn at the drop of a hat if Hasbro bothered to make one. I might end up getting the original 1998 and later Comic 2-pack figures off of eBay if the itch strikes me hard enough.
