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

I hope they do one for DS9- the 20th anniversary is coming up.

My nephew gave me the Bilbo Baggins plush...I already have one, so I'm going to paint a goatee on him and make him the evil Mirror Bilbo!

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

I had no idea those Trek PEZ even existed. Now I want them.

Haha! I can't wait to see Mirror Bilbo.

The Hobbit action figures have actually been pretty good so far, at least the ones that I have. It's impressive considering it's a company that is completely unknown to me: The Bridge Direct. So far I have Killi, Filli, Balin, and Dwalin. All of them are really nice looking, though Killi's bow was a casualty of the 12 Toys of Christmas. I dropped the thing during the making of that and have no idea whatsoever where it ended up. I really hope they get around to making all 13 dwarves.

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

A 20th Anniversary DS9 Pez collection would be awesome. They can even do two or three variations of Sisko to randomly pack in the sets: with hair and clean shaven, with hair and a goatee and a third with a shaved head and goatee.

Heck, throw in both Daxes while you're at it. An Ezri dispenser sounds like it might be unbearable adorable.

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

Picked up an extra Vintage Collection Darth Sidious (VC79) and Dr. Evazan (VC57) at a local Walmart this evening after eating dinner with some friends. I'd been wanting an extra of both for some loose display and tinkering purposes.

I might try to see if a Classic Trilogy Emperor head will fit on the Sidious neck ball joint so I can create a superior ROTJ Emperor Palpatine. I also want to put some silver highlights on the neck clasp on his hood....Hasbro has forgotten or neglected to accurately paint most of the robe clasps on Emperor action figures throughout the years.

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

BREAKING NEWS FOR STAR WARS COLLECTORS:

Been waiting for those Walmart-exclusive Gungan Warriors, Naboo Pilots and Destroyer Droids with the energy shield bubbles to come down in price? Waiting for those slowly fossilizing pegs to get cleared so brand new product can soon be stocked?

Just bored silly and would get a kick out of seeing a Wally World bin piled full of action figures with 3-D glasses attached to their packages?

Head on down to your local Walmart and see if you can score the Discover the Force 3-D action figure deals:



Many of them look like the repacked Jedi that nobody wanted in other packaging when they were newer, but you never know. You might find that stunning new Aurra Sing or Mawhonic you've been looking for, and with the Vintage Collection carded repacks of those characters being online exclusives and harder to get it wouldn't hurt to take a look at your local stores' selections if you've been wanting them.

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

How much you want to bet that if there are a few good figures in the mix, they're down at the bottom? I'm interested in finding the new variant of Soundwave, if only in part for the gimmick of having his minions. I don't like having to deal with the major flaw in the figure (the disc holder is on a spring that can be pushed back, but at the price of pushing his whole back out to ridiculous proportions), but I might be able to look past that.

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

I can just barely spot a couple of Naboo Pilots and Gungan Warriors in that bin but a lot of them look like Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi and the repacked Yoda.

It's a shame because most of the 12 figures in that Walmart-exclusive assortment sold well and were pretty good or even excellent. It's the leftover stinkers that made the entire line look like a crashing flop that nobody bought.

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

Major Holiday markdowns in effect at Walmart, guys, and not just on those exclusive 3-D action figures I mentioned and showed a couple of posts earlier.

Some of the post-Christmas deals on 2012 product.

A couple of extra Dewback lizards would be cool, but unfortunately my area's Wally Worlds seem to be fresh out of their exclusive Dewbacks. There's also an exclusive Vulture Droid that's part of the sale but that one never interested me enough to buy it.

Now if they can just mark down and liquidate all the Clone Wars and Movie Heroes figures that nobody's wanted for the past ten or eleven months. Nobody wants to pay nine or ten bucks for a Super Battle Droid or animated Mace Windu, guys.

Good that they're finally moving it out. Bring on the 2013 stuff!

Man, I've been quiet in this thread for a bit. I haven't picked up anything new the last week or so. I'm hearing reports of DC Unlimited hitting stores, but sadly none around me.

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

I'm hitting one or two local stores this evening before the New Year's Eve festivities begin in earnest so I'm gonna see if they stocked anything kind of cool on the last day of the year, but knowing how most retailers are immediately after Christmas I'm probably just going to see leftovers that I already have or don't want any more of.

Oh, I forgot to mention (I think) that Walmarts are currently selling the MTT Troop Transport for 50% off ($65), so if anybody was holding out on the vehicle because of the hefty $130 price tag and your local Wally Worlds carry it then now might be the time.

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

May I just say how hilarious it is that Hulk has joined in the adventures of Clint and Natasha?

Sideshow has revealed their Prequel Trilogy Yoda figure. It comes decked to the nines. I'm not really in to collecting the prequel trilogy any more, but this makes me reconsider a bit.
