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

I wish I could, but right now it looks like I'm gonna have to pass on the Hot Toys TDKR stuff. The Avengers has already claimed all of my money. Curse all of this stuff coming at once! Then again, with Hawkeye now delayed until October, who knows when the heck we'll even be getting figures?

I'm glad to report that it looks like they've fixed Thor's head sculpt. He now looks a whole lot more like Chris Hemsworth. These constant delays with the Avengers figures most likely mean that they're reworking things to give us the very best figures for our money, but it's still frustrating.

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

Now Kmarts are starting to get the Lost Line/Jar Jar wave of Vintage, and in apparently decent quantities. It's a great chance to army build the all-new Sandtrooper if you can find him.

I was at a sci-fi convention recently and got Serenity action figures. River, Mal and Jayne . Too bad they never made the rest of the characters into action figures.

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

My Hawkeye and Black Widow figures are still getting used to their new home. Big Hawkeye has met my cat, Rory:



Rory tried to eat him.

Little Hawkeye and Black Widow had a tea party with my tiny German tea set (the cups fit their hands perfectly):

That's...mildly disturbing. But I like it.

Well, that's what you get when you have a girl who collects dolls and action figures. The two worlds will collide!

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

I now have all the little Avengers figures, and I found a perfect thing to display them in:








The display case was designed for thimble collections. The little figures fit perfectly, and the center was just the right size for one of my cross stitch pieces.

Looks great, KM! I love how you incorporated your needlework into the display. Nice stuff.

That looks great, KM. They ought to make a Coulson or Chitauri too, so you can fill in those gaps.

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

Sadly, no.

George Lucas visited The Daily Show a couple of years ago and liked Jon Stewart so much he authorized Hasbro to make a "Stewart Trooper" action figure with interchangeable heads, one clean shaven and the other representing the time when Stewart grew a beard or goatee.

I think only a few of them were ever made. But they're real. They exist.

Awww...mini Hulk is so cute and angry...I love it!

However, why do all of the male characters have giant black eyes like grey aliens, but Black Widow has little normal sized eyes? I ask because Thor's eyes look kind of disturbing in a way that's not nearly as problematic on the other characters. He probably would have looked better with small eyes.

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

I suppose having Black Widow's eyes smaller is a way to denote "the fairer sex" and make a female character look a little kinder and gentler. Call it a little bit sexist if you like, but it's sexism perpetrated by a toy company with good intentions I suppose. Like a whole lot of people I guess they think that fairer, more slender features make a female toy more believable, even if those features are eyeballs.
