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

The Cloud Car is an excellent little vehicle. I was actually surprised that Hasbro didn't reissue it in a black and silver Vintage Collection box to resemble the original ESB Cloud Car packaging from the beginning of the eighties. After all, they issued a Cloud Car Pilot as part of the Vintage figure line so it would have been perfect to rerelease the vehicle at the exact same time the new figure was hitting. The timing would have been impeccable.

I mean...they can rerelease and put a Clone Wars V-19 Torrent Starfighter in a classic-looking Vintage box but not the OT Cloud Car? Someone's been huffing model airplane glue.

Brand new packaged photo of the upcoming Target-exclusive "Villain Set" with the brand new Snaggletooth:



In parts of East Asia this is a Toys 'R' Us exclusive instead.

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

I found a 6" Captain America and Thor buried under scores of Iron Men yesterday. Alright! I beginning to think that Hulk, Hawkeye, and Loki are myths, though. Hasbro had better show us a Black Widow in this scale at SDCC, or else a lot of people are going to be pissed.

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

I still own the small '70s/'80s STAR WARS action figures that I owned as a kid. Over the last ten years, I've sold most of my '80s and newer Transformers, although I still buy a new Transformer every now and then.

These days my main toy line of interest is the Panosh Place Voltron toy line of the mid-1980s.

I've got that exact one on my coffee table right now, except I've got the lions separated currently.

I also got the Stealth Voltron that was released a bit later.
Got that one -- the one in the photo. I don't own any Stealth Voltron toys.

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

The Stealth Voltron wasn't a bad toy, but by it's very nature as a sleeker, lower-profile version of the original, it kinda of lacked its sense of flair, IMO.

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

A better pic of the carded Clone Commander Fox.

Only one or two per case?

Bad distribution?

What's likely to be yet another incredibly popular Clone Trooper?

Yeah, you'll find a Wonka Golden Ticket before you'll spot this in stores.

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

The very first carded pic of the upcoming, new Princess Leia(Bespin Gown) from the Vintage Collection. She'll be available on two different designs of cardback: this one and the blue-themed "Lost Line" layout I posted pics of much earlier in the thread.

Sorry for the poor quality, but it's the way the photo is.



Nice to see that Hasbro seems to have replicated the ornate, flowery patterns of Leia's Cloud City outfit in the soft goods of the figure. This looks like it might be amazing up-close, even if the face looks more like Hilary Swank than it does 1980-era Carrie Fisher.

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

I just ordered the 4 inch Black Widow figure. I hope it's as nice as the 4 inch Hawkeye!

Really annoyed with ToyWiz. Everyone else seems to have shipped the Select Hawkeye except them. I really want him! I should cancel and get him from somewhere else.

Nice, but here. Try Sideshow Collectibles's version on for for size. It's their SDCC exclusive for this year.

Speaking of SDCC exclusives, here's Hot Toys's offering. Captain America Rescue Version

Get 'em while they're hot!

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

Finally got confirmation from ToyWiz that my Hawkeye is on its way! And of course, I'm not going to be home when it gets there. But I'm glad they're finally shipping...
