The Pony comics? Oh, yeah, I'm almost certain he does. J.'s on top on all the latest Pony news.

He's got his finger on the "mane" pulse of the franchise.

Ooh yeah, I loved that POTJ packaging. The new ones for 2013 look really nice, too. Certainly better than the Maul look for this year. I wish Legos weren't so expensive. That looks like a pretty fun set.


Moving along:
awww....that's cute. Looks like Kilowog and Dick made up and you have to love Kyle hugging the Pony. Guy however would not be caught dead handling a MLP.

Also...is John putting the moves on Shyera?

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

The power of ponies melts even Guy Gardner's heart! And yeah, I'm a big Justice League cartoon fan, so I couldn't resist sticking John and Shayera together. Personally, my favorite bit in that photo is Wolverine handing Locutus his severed hand back.


Oh, I'm also a Joss Whedon fan, so tragedy strikes:

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

A hundred bonus points for incorporating the Art Asylum Captain Archer into this.

This just keeps getting exponentially cooler.

Haha. That came about from me looking and thinking "Crap! I only have six archers.....wait a minute!"

Also, fun fact: Originally, Hot Toys Hawkeye was in this pic too, but then I bought Killi today, and he was replaced. It's for the best. There's barely enough room for Legolas, let alone two figures in that scale. I'm gonna have to move that shelf tomorrow for the rest of the pics.

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

I wish I had bothered to get the Art Asylum Captain Archer 10 years ago but I just never got around to picking him up even when stores like TRU and KayBee marked down all of their Enterprise toys to ludicrously low prices to try to get rid of them.

Did you ever get the Archer in his EVA spacesuit? I know there was a Phlox in an EVA suit that was an online exclusive with each package personally signed by John Billingsley.

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

Never did pick up the EVA suit ones. I just have Archer, T'Pol, Reed, Trip, and Travis in their normal uniforms. I picked them up when KB had them for a couple dollars a piece. Well, with the exception of Trip, since he was a con exclusive I think? I can't remember. I just remember he was never at retail. Missing Phlox and Hoshi used to bother me, but to be truthful, to Enterprise figures spend their time in a box these days. I had to go dig Archer out to use him here.

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

Did they ever get around to doing a Silik figure before the line was canceled? I think they did but I'm not sure....he might have just been a photo of an unproduced prototype I saw online.

Whether they did or not that line was woefully unappreciated in part because Trek toys have almost always been considered less cool and fun than Star Wars or other sci-fi/fantasy franchise figures and collectibles. I would have enjoyed seeing the line continue and add characters like Shran, Ambassador Soval, Admiral Forrest and even the Mirror Universe NX-01 officers.

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

Oh, that was brilliant. I never would have thought to use Captain Archer. Duh!

I only have the Archer and Reed figures. Never got around to getting more, though I wanted Trip.

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

I don't think I saw Trip more than a few brief times when he was out. Most of the figures I tended to see cluttering pegs and shelves in toy stores a decade ago were Travis, Captain Archer and the Malcolm-with-Bridge Tactical Station playset.

Travis got no love on the show or in plastic form. Poor guy.

I actually managed to score the Captain Archer and Reed with their respective Bridge sections. I also have Trip in his standard uniform which I think was an exclusive figure at the time.

Even as someone who was not a fan of Enterprise, I think that Art Asylum did a great job with ALL of their toys. The only other toys from Enterprise that I have are two NX-01s (one is open and sitting on my desk at work)...and the Phase Pistol/communicator Trek Tek.

Its to bad that you did not have another Red Arrow figure since technically one could have been RA and the other could have been Arsenal (per Young Justice)

Yeah, never did find DCUC wave 20 Red Arrow. He's going for quite a bit more than the rest of the wave, now, of course.

The 12 Action Figures of Christmas will be seen again later tonight, but first, Hot Toys Captain America arrived:

DAMMIT MAN...How did you get yours so fast? Mine will not get here until Friday!

Are you going to get the other Avengers and Coulson?
