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

Great score, KM! A few of my local retailers are also in the middle of toy aisle resets so I'm hoping they pull fresh, new product out of the back and stock it once they're finished...sometimes they just put the same old crap back on the pegs and shelves and don't stock anything fresh that customers might actually be looking for and excited to see.

Haha. Look again. It wasn't KM posting a Hawkeye pic this time.

Also, KM I have a Hawkeye that you don't. . Better get cracking.

Ah! Thanks. Force of habit when it comes to Hawkeye photos. Sorry, man.

Congrats on the score!

I haven't seen that one.

I still want these cute mini Avengers but the price is ridiculous.

ETA- I just ordered the Grab Zag Hawkeye and Black Widow off of ebay. Too cute to resist.

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

The DC Club Infinite Earths figure for the month of August is Mirror Master, and he arrived today:



He's long been a favorite Flash villain of mine. I'm glad to finally have him. Now we just need Heatwave, Weather Wizard, Trickster, Top, Pied Piper, Golden Glider, etc. More Rogues, Matty! More Rogues!

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

i got Marvel Legends Fantomex and Dark Wolverine. Fantomex is pretty awesome, love the character. i'm not a fan of Wolverine, much less his son, but the Dark Wolverine figure is really awesome.

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

Too bad what happened with Jean-Philppe in Uncanny X-Force then The Fantomex figure is something I've been contemplating for a while now. Too bad they didn't release an EVA accessory with it or something.

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

I have both figures. For some reason, I just can't get Fantomex to not look goofy while holding his guns. Daken is a good figure, even if I'm not the biggest fan of the character either. Wave 3 needs to hurry up and get here. I need both Deadpool variants, Punisher, Blade, US Agent, and the white Doom.

Yep. I want to get Uncle Doom (Future Foundation Doom). I still need to get Future Foundation Spider-Man as well.

Amazingly, I think the FF Spidey is my favorite figure from wave 2. The paint is superb, and the figure just has a crisp cool look to it.

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

The Future Foundation Spider-Man is the best looking variant out of the two options available. I like the Big Time Spider-Man Green Suit on paper, but as a figure it kind of is disappointing. I've also seen bad reviews of the figure on youtube.

I am hoping that next year we get a Humberto Ramos Spider-Man figure. I've become a huge fan of his art since he took over on Big Time. He deserves a figure depicting his art.

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

Movie Masters Ra's Al Ghul is up on Amazon! GO! GO NOW!

I have my doubts that he will ever actually show at big box stores. Mattel has said that they have already ceased production on him and the other Movie Masters

EDIT: And he's gone!

I'm glad I managed to grab mine. I am now done with the Dark Knight Rises Movie Masters. Feels good.

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

I thought Mattel stated we would get future waves of movie masters, beyond what was already announced. I am holding out hope for a Miranda Tate figure.

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

STAR WARS Celebration VI kicks off tomorrow down in Orlando! There's the possibility of some surprises regarding upcoming toys and collectibles so stay tuned to the collecting sites for updates and details!

Comic-Con left everyone with the impression that there'd be no more surprise product announcements for the remainder of the year, but with Celebration you just never know what the folks at the event will have up their sleeve!
