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

This is an awesome thread! I have a very small collection of action figures. I'll have to dig out my Jane Austen action figure and post a picture of it on here. It comes with a writing desk!

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

Any pics you have of any action figures or other toys you collect - however few and however small the collection might be - are more than welcome here. Post away!

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.

I've got one of those "D'oh!" stories regarding the Millennium Falcon.


Just before Hasbro unveiled the 2008 Falcon, my local Target still had the original (Kenner) version that I think was re-released in 2004 or so. To make room for the new ones, they slashed the 2004 Falcon down to just 20 bucks. I took a pass on it because I just didn't have any room left in my house for it.

As fate would have it, I moved into a bigger house less than a year later with plenty of storage space.

To this day, not getting that 2004 Falcon is high on my toy regret list...

2004? Sounds like it might have been the black and silver Original Trilogy Collection ship that was in stores when the original films first came out on DVD.

I've always wanted to pick up the BMF. I've never really had the room or the money, though.

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

I'd get the Vintage Toys "R" Us BMF but I can't justify plunking down $250 on one vehicle, awesome box that reminds me of my childhood and two included figures or not. The MTT Transport was a hundred dollars less and came with a whopping 21 pack-in figures even if sixteen of them were little more than statues with poseable heads and right arms.

I'm gonna have to wait until TRU marks down their leftover Falcons to pick one up. If their 2010 Hoth AT-ATs and this year's Death Star Trench Run 2-pack of fighters is any indication they'll have at least a few left to go on sale.

Perhaps this comes with extra figures. The original version just had Han and Chewie. Does this one also have Luke and the droids?

Yeah its weird that its $100 more than the original release. Fact is I like the original box more. I bet someone at Hasbro noticed how much these things are selling for on ebay and adjusted the price accordingly.

No, just the same Han and Chewbacca that the 2008 Legacy Collection Falcon came with. All the other figures on the packaging are sold separately. This Falcon is basically the exact same ship as the 2008 release, just in a brand new retro box and a store exclusive instead of something you can buy at any major retailer.

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



And here's two of the very first images of what the 2013 Clone Wars and Movie Heroes packaging will look like. These will start hitting retail about three months from now if 2012's first new product is any indication.

This is the European cardback but the U.S. version will be very similar.

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

I have to admit I like the 2013 Yoda-themed packaging more than I did this past year's Darth Maul design for Movie Heroes/Discover the Force/Clone Wars figures and vehicles. This is much more colorful and eye-catching than the 2012 packaging's been.

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

Yeah I have to agree with you about the packaging. It looks more clearer and brighter than the Darth Maul "Episode One" packaging did. Nothing out of that line interested me...but this line...hmmm.

I collect the star trek playmates lines, but not too seriously at the moment, they're all opened and played with.

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



These heroes of modern science, modeled off of old Star Trek action figures, are AWESOME. Sadly, these are digitally painted, so we can only hold them on our computer screens, and not in our hands.

I know there are a ton of other scientists who could be added to the list (especially more women), but I’m not the one who had to spend hours rendering these, so I’ll just bask in the science-y glory as it stands. Who would you add?
