Can we move this to TNZ so that I can tell you what I really think of Mittens destroying KayBee?

I'd rather not, but I think I know where you're going with this. And I probably agree.

Anyways, ToyZam doesn't have an outlet in my area (the closest one is about 40 or 50 minutes away near the University of Virginia) so these store reports do me no good, but I wanted you guys to know just in case you were much closer to one.

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

Received an early Christmas present of a 2007 30th Anniversary Collection SW action figure: Pre-Cyborg Grievous, the plastic representation of what the Episode III villain looked like before the shuttle crash and extensive cybernetic reconstruction that created the creepy bad guy we know from Sith.

I was never able to get my hands on this Grievous for anything approaching a reasonable price but one of my friends scored one for me at some flea market sales table. It's a great and highly detailed figure, and pretty tall and bulky.

Here's an old YouTube video review from a collector I subscribe to:

Oh hey, I have that one. I scored him from the pegs when he first came out. I agree, it's a damn fine figure. I never knew he was hard to find.

For some reason, seeing this thread in particular get defiled by a spambot affects me very personally.

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

Ze goggles....zey do nothing!

Anyways, regarding the Pre-Cyborg Grievous: in my area he was a very hard figure to track down because he was a concept art figure in a pretty popular wave. I missed out on him and the examples I've seen on eBay can often run a pretty penny or two.

He was one of the concept art figures I never managed to track down along with the later Concept Art IG-88 from the Legacy Collection.

I can't wait for the Spambot action figure to hit retail. It's action features include a microchip that gives it the power to drone incoherently and then get thrown away five minutes after you buy it.

Yeah, but once you buy it, it keeps popping up in all of your other displays no matter where you put it.

You should paint goatees one of the Hawkeyes and Black Widows, and have them be their evil mirror universe duplicates.

My wife gave me a Movie Masters Catwoman. She respects my love for Anne Hathaway (in spandex!). She's going to be the angel in next years Festivus Nativity.

Down. Who care? I'm going to be looking at her butt the whole time. That Anne Hathaway's got a set of massive hips.
