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

Here's a Walmart ad photo showing the Marvel and Avengers 8-pack they'll also be selling:

Avengers Assemble!

Looks like a mishmash of different Avengers characters from both the recent film as well as their separate movies (not sure if a Hulk figure is included in any of them)...I don't know if you already have all of these or passed on them, but it's added incentive to hit Wally World if you're still in the market for more Avengers and Marvel figures.

Hmm, actually that Avengers pack is a perfect mix of figures that I already have and figures that I have no interest in. Easy pass, then.

The SW Saga Legends set has some good army builders in it...$25 is a pretty Sweet deal for more Imperial troopers, Clones and droids to flesh out your ranks.

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

WOOT!

I just got a Star Wars MTT carrier for free. I don't even collect Star Wars so I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it. It is a nice piece though.

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

WOW! Congrats, man...how did you do that? I had to spent about $150 for mine! Did you win a contest or know somebody who just gave it to you for free?

Did your MTT come in the unopened box with all 21 of the action figures that comes with it (Obi-Wan and the twenty Battle Droids)?

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

That is an amazing score...many congrats. There are SW collectors who'd saw off their left arm to get their hands on the MTT Transport. The $150 pricepoint either turns many off or is out of their reach.

What do you think of it?

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

Same here, though I get the feeling he might leave it in the box and sell it...which is cool. I'm almost tempted to buy it off of him so I can have a second vehicle.

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

Look at the selection in one of the Walmart Black Friday 8-Packs!



All six new figures in Wave 2 of Movie Heroes including both Light-Up Jedi! If some of you could never find this wave (very likely given 2012 distribution) this might be the time to make a big score, and for just $3.13 per figure before tax!

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



I know...I sympathize. But these are Episode I figures collectors actually want and have been trying to get their hands on. Wave 2 of Movie Heroes was like so many other assortments this past year: rarer than hen's teeth and ten times as valuable on eBay.

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

Wow...who knew those wave 2 figures were valuable. At the same event they were giving away those same figs to the attendees. The R2D2 is so awesome. It light up and makes his sounds. I scored a Vader

OK I just looked at ebay and apparently they gave us special variants and the R2D2 was RARE! I had one in my hands and I gave it away!

See this I why I don't collect Star Wars. I don't know what I'm doing

Well its technically a Phantom Menace piece so I have even less interest in it personally. But it is cool as far as Star Wars toys go.

I certainly will not take it out of the box to investigate it further.

See why can't I have this kind of luck when it comes to things I actually collect like say DC/Marvel figures

Between the value of this thing and some of the figures, i could get a new Hot Toy

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

The repack of the 2008 electronic Millennium Falcon in new Vintage Collection packaging costs $249.99 at Toys "R" Us (it's currently a store exclusive). I love the Falcon and Vintage packaging is a sheer work of art that makes me drool, but I'm not shelling out 250 bucks for it. The 2008 version in Legacy Collection packaging cost just $140, so essentially you're paying for the thing being a limited store exclusive and the classic-looking old school box.

No thank you. It's pretty gorgeous, though.
