Ripley is a little too kick ass for the Barbie collectors demographic. You kind of lose that demo when you point out that the hair needs to be short,, matted down from sweat and possibly blood stained.

That said, Ripley in Cargo Loader would be an AWESOME Hot Toys figure...someone get them on the phone!

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

Back in the 2000's, i think, some Japanese company made some 4" ALIENS figures that were actually kits you build into action figures. I think they were blind boxed, too. (you don't know what figure you are getting).

They are probably worth $$$$ now.

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

Up until now, I'd never had a ST doll/figurine. The other day, my hubby went out antiquing with my mom and brother and while out, he found me a Data figure. I got off work that night and found it standing on my dashboard waiting for me. I love it to death, so much so that I've turned it into my good ju-ju figure. I carry him around with me everywhere. *lol*

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

My second San Diego Comic-Con Carbonite Chamber Action Figure Set just shipped. I'm glad the Con had just enough to go around and that people could order or buy more than one. It'll be nice to have two sets of this new wave of figures plus the unique exclusives...it'll save a little time running around looking for them in stores(whenever they even show up).

Where do you order your comic-con exclusives and how do you know what's coming out in advance?
