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

I totally lucked out today! After finding Rainbow Dash (and Applejack) at a Kroger yesterday, I figured it would be a while before I could get the rest of the Mane Six. Well, I got 3 steps closer today! While I was at a Family Dollar picking up a few things for dinner, I walked past the toy aisle and saw a bunch of MLP toys marked down. While most of the ponies were ones I'd never heard of, I did catch these:







Now all I need is Fluttershy and I'll have the Mane Six! YAY!
Some of you may think "you can get these anywhere!", and in many places, I'm sure you can. Where I live, though, it is very difficult to find the Mane Six (well, okay, you can find lots of Rarity, oddly enough). So this is just too cool for me!

Yay Rarity! And, yeah, she doesn't seem to sell. I remember when my local Target had piles of the basic and fashion style Rarities on clearance because the shelves were clogged. That was before I started collecting, alas, or I would have picked some up. Her FS figure now commands absurd amounts on the secondary market.

I guess this kinda confirms Hasbro's belief that white toys don't sell to girls. (E.g, Pinklestia.)

Hot Toys reveals another convention exclusive. This time it's one that's really a must have:

Oh, I love Rarity, too.
I hope to get a white Celestia soon, to round out the collection (though I have to get Fluttershy first).

She makes me want to put on a body glove wetsuit, grab my board, and ride the waves.

That detail is insane. I have to keep reminding myself it's an action figure and not a person!

They're bringing out Prometheus figures next year - i think the success of the movie took them surprised.

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

Just ordered the San Diego Comic-Con Carbonite Chamber exclusive set with the seven unique carded figures as well as carbon freezing chamber display box...I decided to bite the bullet and get the entire set, including the Carbonite-Frozen Jar Jar figure. I've warmed up to it since the last time I spoke about it in this thread...it's unique cheesiness has sort of worn off on me.

Once again, here's the Comic-Con set:



I also found the brand-new Target exclusive Droid and Villain 3-packs last night. These contain the completely brand new Power(Gonk)Droid and Snaggletooth figures.

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

I finally found the Movie Masters Catwoman today, of course right as reports of John Blake appearances start coming out. Back to the hunt again. The crazy thing is where I found her: Barnes and Noble. It's certainly not a place I would have thought to look, but while I was in one I saw that they had a display of Dark Knight Rises toys. Sure enough, there was a lone Catwoman sitting on it.

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

Every single solitary space I have is filled with action figures. When I get new ones, I rearrange stuff, or put stuff I don't really like any more in bins.

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

I still have space, but I don't want to use every available nook and cranny for figures because I need it for other things. So I end up putting a lot of stuff in plastic storage containers and inside actual Hasbro action figure shipping cartons...then I just shove them off to the side somewhere out of the way.

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

Just breaking from the floor of Comic-Con in San Diego...the first packaged photo of two upcoming Vintage Collection Endor/Ewok two-pack sets. As of right now it's unconfirmed if these will be store exclusives or available at all major retailers.

More updates to come!



ETA: Two new "Movie Heroes" assortment figures...a new Boba Fett with some sort of a zipline rocket pack and what appears to be a split-apart Battle Droid with a light-up feature.
