I'm curious...how many folks here actually take their figures/vehicles out of the box?
I'd probably do that, If I had the original packaging, but since the 50 or so, modern Star Wars figures that I have, were bought second hand anyway, it's sort of a moot point.

Now...the Trade Federation MTT Troop Transport with battery-powered sound effects, motorized rack and 21 included figures? That's coming out of the big box and getting played with when it comes. You can't even remotely appreciate and enjoy a vehicle like that unless you take it out and mess around with it.

Can't wait for it! That thing looks so sweet.

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

I always take mine out of the box.

I may even take Hawkeye with me on my vacation and take photos of him on the road. I've been seeing a lot of that kind of stuff on tumblr. "And here is Hawkeye at Cracker Barrell..."

"Hawkeye at the Ozzy Osbourne concert..."

That sounds like it could be awesome.

Everything is busted wide open unless I have a duplicate (which isn't that many, to be honest).

Also does anyone know if Art Asylum is actually still producing Trek figs/ships/tech?
Not for themselves, but for Diamond Select Toys, last I heard. DST is still advertising some Trek stuff in various comic books and magazines, including the (still) coming soon Enterprise-E.
It seems like its been ages since anything has come out. The last thing I remember was the Communicator from Trek II. It was a faithful replica but I never understood why they picked such an awful prop to replicate.
To go with the fairly popular-selling Star Trek II phaser. Personally, I kind of like the TWOK communicator, but it doesn't really mesh design-wise with the phaser, IMO.

Looks like some SDCC dealers got their hands on the last wave of The Dark Knight Rises Movie Masters. The mystery figure is:

Color me happy. I can't wait to get my hands on him, both because I love the character and I want to complete my batsignal.

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

One of my two SDCC Carbonite Chamber Action Figure Sets just shipped from San Diego!

The other one should ship in the next day or so. Can't wait! An entire, brand new wave of Vintage Collection figures that aren't in stores yet is inside this set!

Another day, another Batman Movie Masters pic. I thinking of making one a day in anticipation. Any ideas? I have Batman, Bane, Catwoman, Gordon, and Alfred available from the movie.

Sheer Win.



I'm just glad that the new Bane is menacing and believable. The 1997 version from the Clooney film was just an embarrassing joke...like the movie itself. That Bane couldn't scare an infant.

I like the way you think.
