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

These are the re-issues that have been delayed. I believe the blog stated that the Enterprise-B is not merely a repainted version of the previous verison, it's new. Not sure what is new about it yet, but they have stated it won't be the same ship.

The last ship in this line will be the Excelsior, have no idea when that is coming out though. Probably fourth quarter of this year. Art Aslyum also stated they have no idea yet what future ships they will be pumping out. I suspect they'll announce this at Toy Fair or something like that.

Did Art Asylum ever put out a Defiant? I would buy that in a heartbeat.

Good thing that the New York Toy Fair debuts on Feb. 9th so we have just a little less than five weeks left to wait for all the cool announcements about the things we like to collect!

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

I don't think they've done a Defiant. I believe that was asked in the Q and A and we were just given the "we'll see" line. Yeah, I can't wait for Toy Fair next month.

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

I just hope Hasbro unveils a good amount of information about the Star Wars line for this year, because after the cancellation of Legacy/Droid Factory a whole lot of collectors are chomping at the bit to try to understand what the company has planned for 2013.

We know Episodes II and III in 3-D hit theaters after Labor Day, but that's a little more than eight months away and that's often an eternity in toy marketing, sales and collecting. If the folks at the Big H don't have some very good product scheduled to fill the long gap between now and the end of summer then there are going to be legions of ticked-off collectors who might just sit out the year or even quit.

I can't imagine Hasbro wants to risk that. It will only hurt their own bottom line, and that's verboten to most toy companies.

Last year's NYTF brought lots of great DC news. I'm hoping this year is just as good. Speaking of which, 2013's figure clubs are starting up next week. Saint Walker and Rorschach will be the first two up for me. I'm excited. Those are characters I've been wanting figures of for a long time.

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

I'm personally hoping for our first peak at Matty's "Man of Steel" line. Hoping we get Movie Masters. Maybe Hasbro will bust out some "Into Darkness" stuff as well.

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

I imagine the new Star Trek toys will be at the Toy Fair given that it takes place just three months before the movie premieres. I can't wait to see Hasbro's take on the Enterprise and the main characters....who knows, there might even be a Benedict Cumberbatch action figure to gawk over.

^ I will buy it in a second. I passed on the "Star Trek" figures...they seemed okay, but for some reason I wasn't really into them. Hopefully these ones will be an improvement.

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

The toys they show will in all likelihood be spoiler-free and reveal nothing that the trailers and the 9 minutes of the movie screened in IMAX theaters haven't already shown the public.

I'd love to see Hasbro's take on the Enterprise. The company does an excellent job recreating ships and vehicles from the Star Wars universe with great and intricate surface detail, so a Hasbro Enterprise with some electronic features might be amazing.

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

Also we should get a look at the 2013 Star Trek Hot Wheels (I don't believe there have been any pictures of them yet...I could be wrong). They're supposed to feature an updated "Into Darkness" version of the Enterprise (The "Star Trek" version has been sold out and is pretty impossible to get, unless you want to pay like fifty bucks on ebay, which I don't lol). For some reason they're re-releasing the Narada as well as well as a new ship from the film. I'm excited for these.

I have the Enterprise-D one on my shelf and it's pretty awesome.

Post a pic if you get the chance! We don't get enough photos of Trek toys and collectibles in here.

Can't wait for a Benedict action figure! I wish someone would do figures for Sherlock.

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

The 2009 Star Trek movie toy line had a 6" Nero as well as a 12" version of him so I'd say it's a safe bet we'll get the main villain in at least one format in the new Hasbro line.

"John Harrison" / Cumby is almost a certainty. You'll get your wish to see him in plastic.

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

I thought I'd post a quick pic of the 3 3/4 inch scale Hobbit figures I've picked up so far. I still need to get Thorin, but I have the rest of the dwarves available right now. These are by a relatively unknown company called The Bridge Direct. Considering how new they are on the scene, I'm pretty impressed. Bilbo and Gollum are sadly mediocre, but the dwarves have all turned out really well so far.
