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

Another Vintage Collection paint variation that will drive the completionists and variant hunters even more nuts than they already are.

Facial stripes? Or no facial stripes?

(*facehoof*)

Can't find any good photos of the Sonic ones all together right now so I'll sort that out at some point.

Unfortunately, it's just a "Thank you for your interest in Hasbro!" form letter.

Equestria Daily announced today that Wave 4 of the blind-bag Ponies are coming soon, so there's 24 new smaller figures without the rings.

I'm off to England next week so I'll see what I can find, but Yorkshire....well I suppose they have to have something close to modern somewhere.

You wouldn't happen to know if these blind bags are sold here in the U.S., would you? And if so, where? I haven't seen them anywhere around here.

They're described as being "Europe only" so nope, although probably only England is getting them in the UK.

Amazon UK have all 24 Wave 3 unopened in the original box, but for £100. It isn't Hasbro that's selling it, someone's just got hold of a few and trying to profit of them.

So if I find a MD's in England I'm buying loads.

Yeah, it's pretty bad.

Back, sort of, on topic though. I did manage to find the 20th Anniversary Sonic 10 inch figures from last year back in about March.

And they are terrible quality, when did they start introducing crappy joints and articulation into all figures regardless? I thought they were solid molds.

Damn the bastards.

Oh well. Thanks for trying, man. I was hoping ol' Gep would be mistaken, but whaddya gonna do. Canned, robotic responses are the order of the day anymore.

*****

ETA: I have a toll-free number, guys! It's from one of the Star Wars collecting sites I'm a member of...just follow this link and look for the 800 number at the bottom of the message. It should be an all-purpose Hasbro customer hotline or some other such contact number. Some of you may already be aware of this #, but for the Bronies who don't know it be sure to write it down and see if you can get some kind of a reply from the company! Any efforts might just end up hitting a stupid brick wall like J. Allen's message, but hell...it's worth a shot.

Good luck!

I called. It's outside their hours of operation here. On Fridays, they close at 1 PM EST. Monday through Thursday it's until 8 AM to 5 PM. I'll have to try again Monday.

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

It was just serendipity that the number cropped up on the other website. Over at JTA we're having a(usual)bitchfest about Hasbro distribution of Star Wars merchandise and my buddy who runs the site got hold of that number and decided to let us all have at it. He's more optimistic than most of the rest of us, but I told him I'd give it a shot just to make him happy and be sort of positive. His philosophy is that every little bit of added pressure might help and Hasbro might get to the point where they crack, scream and enact changes. We'll see, but as with MLP stuff I'm not getting my hopes up too high.

The MLP stuff is mostly digital right now besides the small toys we're getting now. Hasbro just announced three story books for the iPad like the Twilight Sparkle one last year. The first one is already out and more are planned.

So I think we're only going to get this new 24 piece Wave 4 figure set over the summer.
