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

There isn't one in my hometown proper but rather next door in a smaller city. Tuesday Morning is supposedly a lot like Marshalls or TJMaxx so expect to see similar layouts and inventory if you're familiar with those chains.

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

I'm sorry, the name "Tuesday Morning" triggered something.



Also, cooleddie, if you are interested in getting the MLP:FiM figurines from Toys R Us, they're still $19.99 for now, though I've seen some places already jump to $27.99.

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

I'll be sure to act on it, thanks man! I got sidetracked the other day and didn't go to the TRU site to look into it.

Ahhhh, the Moody Blues. One of the best bands in pop history. Thanks for that..."In Your Wildest Dreams" is my all-time favorite of their tracks.

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

More Breaking News!

Jedi Temple Archives reports that FYE stores are stocking the brand new Dr. Evazan wave of the Vintage Collection(2012 Wave 4) for $10.99 apiece, and this selection includes the repacks of 2011 figures that come with the five new figures in the wave. One of the 2011 repacks is the highly sought-after ARC Trooper Commander which was kinda hard to find last year.

Check 'em out! Case fresh, baby! If any of you guys and gals don't have the Evazan wave yet(Evazan, Aayla Secura, Kithaba, Nom Anor, 501st Legion Clone Trooper) check out your local FYE store(s)!

My FYE doesn't stock Star Wars stuff.

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

Is there a second FYE anywhere in your area that you can check? I remember you saying you were scoping for Nom Anor.

Mine stocks Star Wars figures, but most of the time it's much older ones like the 2011 AOTC wave(Mace, Peasant Anakin, Peasant Padme). I need to call or drive out there and see if they've updated their stock since my last visit a couple of months ago.

Nope. There's only one in the area that I know of. The toy gods hate me. This I know. The only toys that my FYE ever stocks are some of the NECA Player Select stuff, and they've had the same stock for close to a year.

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

Wow. That sucks, bro. Well, at least you can order all your awesome Hot Toys collectibles and not have to rely on local stores for them. That's something, and at least you get top-notch quality for your investments. Even when you have a lot of stores in your local area there's no guarantee you can ever find anything.

Trust me.

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

Just surfacing on eBay:

The recently cancelled or delayed Battle of Naboo Battle Pack that was supposed to be a Target exclusive to coincide with the release of Episode I 3-D back in February. This Battle Pack was unceremoniously nixed by the company without any fanfare and packaged samples have been nowhere to be seen until now. Caveat emptor, though...the Buy It Now option for this thing?

$2,000

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

I finally got my Batman Inc. Batman from BBTS yesterday morning and I'm quite impressed. My goal is to get a Damian Wayne that doesn't cost over thirty bucks, which seems a little impossible. Failed on getting Big Time Spider-Man or Future Foundation Spidey, but might get the revision wave when it comes out. Stores are completely sold out of them it seems.

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

Big Bad Toy Store is the only way to do things sometimes. Not familiar with "Batman Inc." though...I'm gonna have to Google that one to see what the line looks like. Do they carry these in retail stores? If so I've never noticed.

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

Those would be from DC Direct, which can only be found online or in comic book shops. Their quality is inconsistent, but they've been getting a whole lot better as of late. If they would improve their articulation, I would be collecting the hell out of them.

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

Ahhhhh, okay. I knew I wasn't familiar with them, that's all I was sure of. To be frank I just don't pay much attention to most superhero figures unless it's the new AVENGERS stuff and even then I'm not terribly impressed with a good deal of it. Hey, what do you think of the $2,000 eBay auction above? Can you believe the stones on the person selling this thing?!?

Cancelled item or not, all the molds in this set are reused from past years and I don't think there's one single truly new item in the entire thing except for the packaging itself. And yet, part of me thinks some well-off collector somewhere will bid on this thing or even buy it outright just so they can brag they were one of the first people on the planet to get their hands on this Battle Pack.

I saw then at Red Rocks in 1984, great show.

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

Even if it is a cancelled item, it's freaking Gunguns.

Some Toys R Us in Des Moines was very very naughty, and broke the 5/28 street date for the Dark Knight Rises Figures:



Mine! All mine! Now, countdown to them riding ponies.
