I love those! The Einstein and Sagan ones would be a trip to own!

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 believe that was the one. These days, my local Target doesn't keep anything even remotely that long on the shelf before marking it down, especially if it's a fairly large item.

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

Here's a new 501st Legion Clone Trooper for next year's Clone Wars figure line. It looks like a repaint of the white Phase II Clone we saw this past year pegwarming the aisles but at least it's a really nice repaint and a new twist on the 501st Clones we haven't seen in 3.75" plastic before.

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

Here's the two latest from DC Club Infinite Earths. Since the sub started a month late, this month they're doubling up. Here's John Constantine and Uncle Sam with Doll Man.


Both are really cool, even if I've never read Freedom Fighters or Hellblazer. Constantine really needed an accessory, though. At least something small like a cigarette, since he's a chain smoker.

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

Those look great. Are they 6" or 12" scale figures? Judging by the tiny little Doll Man accessory at Uncle Sam's feet I'm assuming these guys are at least five or six inches tall.

Yeah, DC Universe Classics is a 6" scale line.

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

These are the online exclusives you can't buy in stores, aren't they? That's cool. After getting my two cases of the final wave of the Vintage Collection online I'm coming to appreciate not having to slug through retail stores looking for brand new figures even if you have to wait a little while to get them.

My local B&M has got a new stock of older Vintage Collection Star Wars figures. Some good army builders in there with the Endor Rebel (both variants), TIE pilots and Stormtroopers.

Yeah, they're the online exclusives. I do appreciate being guaranteed the figures that I want, though there will always be something about the thrill of the hunt. Oh well, the DC Unlimited retail lines should be hitting soon enough and it will be back to hunting.

Nice. Sounds like Wave 8 (Revenge of the Jedi) if you're seeing the white and black Endor Rebels. That was a great wave because it also had a variant of the Stormtrooper with a slightly different helmet and paint apps than the previous releases of the VC41 Vintage Stormtrooper a little earlier in 2011.

Why does he have that massive scar on his face?

That's sort of how I have to sit down after I eat Thanksgiving dinner. I'm lucky if I'm even able to get back up from a sitting position after enjoying the meals my family and friends cook.

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

I decided not to brave the local Walmarts today to try to pick up one of those $25.00 Star Wars 8-packs of figures. Besides, all the best ones were probably picked over last night right after people finished their Thanksgiving dinner and decided to do some post-meal shopping to beat the Black Friday morning avalanche.

If I missed the 8-pack containing the figures I needed I'll just have to settle for that and get them somewhere else...I'm not braving those insane, borderline dangerous crowds to pay $3.13 each for a value pack of action figures even if some of them did have characters I've been wanting for a couple of months now.
