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

If true, I suppose that's something. I guess. Better than nothing at all when everything's said and done. It'll probably be 2013 or 2014 before we get a lot of Brony-friendly merchandise(if then)...but I'll remain positive. Hasbro might suck the chrome off a trailer hitch sometimes, but there are other moments when the company will actually give kids and collectors some pleasant surprises.

But I'm going to be on the warpath until I get a G4 Derpy plushie. Grrrrrr!

I want a Dash plushie (also Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Spike, Derpy, Lyra, Luna, and Celestia)! My demands are so small!

I've never been much of a toy memorabilia collector, but I admit I'd be all over a Pinkamena plushy.

One of the guys over at BK keeps posting Inkie Pie pics (I think it's Inkie Pie), and now I want an Inkie Pie plushy too.

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

If I were in charge of G4 Plushies even Macintosh would get his own plushy! I'd leave no stone unturned. If a Pony appeared in at least one episode and had any significant dialogue whatsoever I'd crank out one of each just to satisfy the hunger of the Brony market. Some might think that one of each Pony that's ever had significant lines might be whopping overkill, but let's face it. Many if not most of the Bronies in the BBS would buy them all. There's a market that's been waiting for good and plentiful G4 merchandise and I think even a plushy of one of the most minor of Ponies would do well.

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

My Logray is from the original 2011 release of the figure. I haven't checked his facial striping yet, but if he's from last year he probably won't have the stripes at all. Evazan...Kithaba...Rebel Fleet Trooper...Logray. The paint variations just keep coming day after day! Good thing I'm not a hardcore completionist who has to have one of everything because I would have been flat broke a long time ago.

Hey, if you got the striped Logray then that means you must have just found him, which means that the Dr. Evazan wave assortment with the repacks of some of the 2011 figures must be hitting where you are. That's cool...here we have yet to see anything on store pegs newer than the ROTJ BluRay Deleted Scenes figures and even those are kind of scarce so far.

Inkie Pie? She must be black. Or blue. And sometimes red.

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

It's like my two most frequented threads on this board have merged into one!

Taking a break from ponies for a moment, here's some Hot Toys Bruce Lee:


Hmmm, notice anything different about these pictures?

I had a Bruce Lee action figure. Then it kicked Chuck Norris in the knee.

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

He has poseable eyes? Sweet!

I don't think I've seen that kind of feature outside a select handful of really high-end collectibles. What do you do, just roll your fingers over his eyes to adjust them to the position you want? Or is there some control button or trigger hidden on the body that does it for you?

His hair is a separate piece that conceals a little joystick in the back of his head that moves the eyes.

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

NICE.

I've never purchased a Hot Toys figure before...how much did you pay for your Bruce Lees? Was one more expensive than the other?

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

They're technically one figure. The figure comes with two headsculpts and outfits, along with that sweet mirror room diorama. But Sideshow Collectibles (Hot Toys' US distribution partner) had an exclusive version that included an extra body essentially giving you two figures for only $20 more. All told it came out to about $200 which is a steal for two Hot Toys figures, especially with their prices going up and up and up lately.
