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

The first photo of the cardback reverse of the Droid Figure Set coming to Target stores. This shows the two other Special Figure Sets shipping in the new case assortment: one straight repack from last year that some didn't find ("Android") and one more brand-new one with a completely new Snaggletooth (Snivvian/Zutton/Takeel) figure, the first Snaggletooth/Snivvian figure of any kind that Hasbro has issued since the year 2004.

The Tusken Raider and Boba Fett will most likely be straight repacks of older figures. But what's new.

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

Well, it's not the Diamond Select (still waiting), but this Hawkeye arrived in the mail today:




CLINT NO.


Nap time. All that's missing is a Black Widow figure, and she's on my amazon wish list.

I walked into my local Wal-mart at random about three weeks ago and picked up the Black Widow figure (there was only one of her on the pegs). I haven't seen any other Black Widows in other stores yet.

They may be extremely short-packed (1 to a case perhaps?).

^Possibly. Which really sucks. I guess if I see one, I just need to grab it.

Well, turns out the TRU Ewok (and possibly Yavin Pilot) multipacks will cost even more than we thought. Rebelscum is reporting that the Ewok set is showing up in the TRU store computer system for $39.99, five dollars higher than previously announced.

Dammit! I haven't seen anything past the initial Avengers waves. I still need Hawkeye and Black Widow both. Hawkeye looks great for this scale.

Not bad for 4 inches. But the 7 inch Select Hawkeye is even better.

That sounded wrong, didn't it? Then there's the 12 inch Hot Toys version coming...

Indeed. I have two payments down on him, and one more to go. Who knows when he'll actually arrive, though. I shall go crazy with pictures when he does.

Sad to think that it will take around a year to get a whole Hot Toys Avengers team, but it will be worth it.

I'm still searching for the Wal-Mart exclusive 6" figures, too. I've seen nothing beyond Iron Man, which is the exact same figure as the Iron Man II Mark VI, just with some scuffs.

I'm not surprised one iota.

Hasbro loves, loves, LOVES to recycle older molds...to death. It probably won't be the last time you see that particular Mark VI mold.

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

You're probably right. This is actually already the third or fourth time they've reused it. It got a straight up rerelease in the Iron Man Legends line, along with at least one repaint in goofy colors for that same line.

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

I think the Princess Kneesaa figure in the new Ewok set is partially made of repainted, recycled parts from the 2011 Vintage Collection Wicket. At least that's what a couple of guys on the collecting boards have said.

I'm pretty sure Teebo is Logray too. Tippet's tiny head is kinda strange.

Picked up the Bespin Cloud Car at half-price. Nice enough I suppose though kinda bland. At least it gives me an excuse to pick up some Cloud Car pilots that have been peg warming at my local TRU.
