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

Great Dark Lords Duelin' photo....you were right about Day Eight. It certainly delivered.

I know a few online collectors who'd probably try to skin you alive if they knew you not only owned Darth Revan and Darth Malak but took them out of the mint package, but I'm sure that doesn't surprise you in the least.

Regarding that Emperor Palpatine figure's robe and hood, I have to say that the combination of the two has never looked very good. The hood/cowl is just all different kinds of lame rolled into one thanks to the way the fabric was shaped and sewn, but at least the figure underneath is pretty sweet.

Dude, I would open a vinyl caped Jawa just to piss of MOCers.

I agree about Palpatine. It seems to me that ROTJ Palps is one character they still have yet to get right.

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

I'm assuming an "ultimate" Return of the Jedi Emperor is something that'll get tackled when the Vintage Collection returns with new figures. That seems to be the consensus on the collecting boards.

The truth is that if you take this year's Vintage Episode I Darth Sidious and replace the head and hands with those of an older, deformed Emperor Palpatine you actually have a pretty sweet and acceptable Original Trilogy Emperor even if he's not as hunched over as the character was in Jedi.

Here's hoping. He's sorta the one big character that has never gotten a definitive version.

I was kinda hoping for some uncontrollable terror from the very thought of opening a MOC vinyl Jawa from you.

I shuddered a little, yes.

But since you didn't provide photos of the crime, no biggie.

All-New Pictures of Wave 4 Movie Heroes figures in European packaging!

And here's a great, hi-res picture of the MTT Droid Fighter Class II vehicle in 2013 Yoda-themed packaging. The Obi-Wan is a straight repack of the figure from the recent Duel on Naboo Battle Pack (check out that much better and more accurate Ewan McGregor head) while the Blue Pilot Battle Droid is a repaint of a slightly older droid mold.

This is the first new, movie-style blue Battle Droid Pilot in over a decade.

^That is pretty sexy looking.

The very last DC Club Infinite Earths figures of the year have hit my doorstep. The monthly figure, Platinum with Tin, and the quarterly oversized figure, Lead.


With these guys, we now have the complete classic Metal Men:

Yeah, he is a bit small, and Lead is a bit big. They still make for an awesome display when all together, though.

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

I almost forgot. Here's day nine:


I have this thing going on in my head where Guy Gardner and Rainbow Dash have quickly become the best of friends. They're both kinda loud, always want to be acknowledged as the best. They're also both fiercely loyal to their friends, and when the going gets tough, there's nobody you would rather have at your back.

Is it wrong that for the past few days, I've just been WAITING to see the 12 Toys of Christmas pic for the day?

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

Not wrong at all. It makes me feel awesome. I actually put quite a bit of time into this, creating all the little mini battles that the keen eyed will spot. My favorite for this day is Vader choking Hawkeye. The one problem is that as more and more figures enter the mix, it becomes harder to do them.

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

Thanks again for all your hard work assembling the figures for these photos, man. We all seem to be loving them....I can't wait to see the next six days of the countdown.

Six days? Pal, it's the 12 days of Christmas. I just started it a few days early.
