I guess the Three Wise Vaders brought gifts of spice, holocrons and midichlorians.

Cool! Feel free to post more pics if you have them! We don't get enough He-Man/MotU pictures in here.



In other news:

Is there an FYE store near you? Do you collect Star Wars?

Get there. NOW.

I......what!?!?!?!?!

God damn you! My FYE has never carried Star Wars figures, ever.

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

FYE is real hit or miss with Star Wars Hasbro figures. Some get lots of the newer and newest characters. Others have only older selections. Then there are the ones - like yours apparently - that carry jack squat and might never bother with them.

Mine carries them but for some time now the only Vintage Collection figure on their toy pegs is a VC26 Rebel Commando with the white skin. They did have some Clones, Jedi and Sandtroopers but they were all either bought or pulled. I'd love to see more Emperor's Royal Guards, Weequays and Old Republic Troopers dangling from FYE's toy wall but at their current pace of checking and restocking their inventory I won't hold my breath.

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

I have some other expenses I need to take care of at the moment so I won't be able to take advantage of this sale. It'll probably expire before I can jump on it so I'm probably going to have to wait until the Falcon goes on severe markdown at my brick-and-mortar store before I pick it up.

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

I have 8 versions of Ezio on the way to my house. Seven of them are the NECA 7" action figures and one is the 9" ACR PVC figure.

The NECA ones are:

ACB Ebony hooded
ACB Ebony unhooded
ACB Onyx hooded
ACB Onyx unhooded
ACR Standard Grey hooded
A two pack consisting of ACB Florentine Scarlet hooded and ACR Caspian Teal hooded

ACB = Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
ACR - Assassin's Creed Revelations

I love Assassin's Creed!

Awesome. I love Assassin's Creed, too. I haven't picked up any of the NECA figures, but I did invest in one really awesome one by a certain company with the initials HT:

Nice.

Lovers of the Vintage Collection, do not despair!

More case assortments of popular Vintage Collection figures are coming in February 2013 if not sooner!

I knew they couldn't just put it in hibernation and be done with it. Not Vintage. This has been the most popular figure line and their best cash cow since the modern era of action figures began almost eighteen years ago.
