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

So for many years now ive collected few models or collectibles from Star Trek, I had a total of two and one isn't on display. Now in one fell swoop I get a 1994 Playmates TOS enterprise, a STIII BoP, and a DS9 runabout in one Christmas!! I also got myself a Tron light cycle and Halo Warthog...wtf is going on?

Giada's a good dog, though. She just sniffed him and then ignored him. Hulk was sad.

My Joes didn't fare so well. But we improvised and slapped on some red paint and they became Bloody Joe the wounded guy.

Agreed. My poor Marvel Legends Gambit.

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

My beagle's a good and well trained girl. She doesn't try to swipe any of my loose action figures to chew on them and never has. As a puppy she took most of her gnawing and teething out on furniture and her own toys so she never got into the nasty habit of trying to sneak off with a Darth Vader or Jango Fett.

Being kids we left some Joes on the ground where the dogs didn't have to swipe them to get them.

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

When I was a kid, my friend had a great train set. He would put little army figures on the tracks and run them over. It was glorious!

(That kid grew up to be a lawyer in a big New York firm. He turned out okay.)

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

I was too anal retentive to leave most of my action figures and other toys just lying around for dogs and other pets to get their mouths around. Besides, even if I hadn't been anal and picky about my toys my parents would have made me pick them up so they wouldn't get stepped on and broken.

"If you break it you probably aren't getting another one!"

It wasn't so much leaving them where my dog could get them, as it was the misfortune of a figure taking a shelf dive and my dog finding it before I did.

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

Not action figures, but toys all the same- got these in addition to the Avengers set.



Somehow my mom found the classic Trek Pez! They're hard to find and cost an arm and a leg when they are found.

And because I will never grow up, I also got a new American Girl.



Just one more Clint and Tasha adventure (with Hulk!)- the first snow of the year!

I have the TOS Pez collector's set but I never knew they made one for NEXT GEN. Cool!
