Good points about Disney.

Thanks for the helpful reminder about some of their business practices.

We don't need a dozen more Vaders each year.

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

The re-issue of the Enterprise-B and Enterprise-D are out next month from Diamond Select finally. As I mentioned before the Enterprise-E is scheduled for March I believe.

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

Is Crusher missing from the STNG set?

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

I'm guessing she's in the set, just hidden behind the Tardis. Beverly was a major character in the series....I couldn't imagine PEZ just leaving her out.

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

Doesn't appear to be enough space in the packaging behind the Tardis, beside Data and where the box ends, unless that is a little extension that we can't see, it does seem odd to leave her out though. Maybe this is a season two Pez set

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

I found a picture of the TNG set. She's in there.

She was just hidden behind that Tardis.

Yes, she's there. The Doctor wanted a new redheaded companion, so he borrowed her.

Cool. What's the price point on those? I kick myself for never picking up any of the Art Asylum ships.

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

I solved the mystery of the Battle Droids in the new 2013 Yoda-packaged / green boxed mini-vehicles showing up at Toys "R" Us.

I thought they might have been the old Saga Legends mold from a few years ago with plenty of joint articulation but with a brand new head with sculpted eyes. Turns out they're the Battle Droid mold from the MTT Troop Transport, the one with just five points of articulation (neck, shoulders, hips). The one packed with Obi-Wan was simply repainted with blue Pilot markings and the one that comes with the Clone Gunship Pilot was repainted or remolded red. They have no elbow or knee joints whatsoever, so if the poseability of your droids matters you might want to skip these new sets.

OdoWan I believe Diamond's blog/website lists them for $60 bucks. BBTS is listing the Nemesis Enterprise-E reissue as $49.99 I believe.

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

Sigh, no Hot Toys Avengers in January. Just got notice that Black Widow has been bumped to next month. That means that, if the current schedule holds, Widow, Thor, and Loki are all due next month. Ouch! I have a feeling that, with the numerous delays, Loki and Thor will both be pushed back as well.

If Disney does take over Hasbro (or something) and clamps down on what Star Wars stuff gets made, I'd be sorta okay with it, as I don't collect the figures like I did, and that something like the Ice Cream Maker Guy REALLY DID NOT need to be made as a toy.

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

I personally don't mind obscure background characters because those minor cult figures help pad out a wave assortment and keep a steady flow of new product in a given year (plus some Trek and Wars geeks like myself tend to love the background characters that look interesting and have been given their own stories by creative fans, the producers or both).

That said....yeah. Willrow Hood (Ice Cream Maker Guy) was a terrible pegwarmer in stores in my area and while I like and appreciate him a lot of people apparently didn't and still don't. He's one character I don't think we'll ever have to worry about Hasbro repackaging and rereleasing.

In other Star Wars collecting news....

SCORE!



The very first 2013 product is hitting and this is the first one I've seen at local retail.

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

Congrats on the score, but looking at that, something is bothering me. What the heck is up with the sudden revert to the basic five articulation points? Toys moved past that over a decade ago. "Super-articulated" is the standard these days.
