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

Sounds like it. Looks like what sporadic value the Movie Heroes figure line had is about to disappear and be replaced by cheap junk that will clutter dollar stores.

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

The first wave of green packaged 2013 Clone Wars figures has just hit the Philippines.

The United States (starting with the West Coast) almost always follows the Filipino market by a few shorts weeks or even days, so if anyone here is interested in the new figures then it probably won't be much longer before all the new green Yoda cardbacks are dangling from your local store pegs.

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

Bit of a slow period, so I've gone back and picked up a few more DCUC figures that I missed. Got Jonah Hex and the Creeper, and finally have my Bane BAF complete. I also grabbed Mr. Miracle. Now my Kalibak is only missing his left arm. I need to find a Hawkman for a decent price, now.

Few things are more enraging than incomplete Build-a-Figures.

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

I forgot to mention that I finally got my New 52 Justice League Superman a couple of weeks back. I loves him!!! Pretty much what I expected out of the figure and have no real complaints at all. I might post a picture if I have the time. The one other figure that I have to go...is Arthur, which has become surprisingly rare since no one expected Geoff Johns book to be so awesome I will probably end up getting him from Big Bad as well sometime in the next month.

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

Looks like one of the brand new figures we'll be getting this fall when the new 3.75” collector line debuts is the pilot Droid of Count Dooku's solar sailer from the end of AOTC....the one with little bulldozer or tank-like treads for feet.

It was originally going to be a Build-A-Droid figure divided into separate pieces but now we'll be getting the Droid all at once and on a black cardback.

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

Ok, that's a figure I have just about no interest in whatsoever. I'm glad that he wont be a BAF for people that want him, though. It was almost impossible to complete any of the Build-A-Droids in the past. I am still bitter about never being able to get HK-47.

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

I think another one of the cancelled Build-A-Droids that will now come on a cardback in one piece is a "realistic" interpretation of Jabba the Hutt's protocol droid from The Clone Wars, but I could be mistaken. I remember a Hasbro fair or convention display showing a muticolored protocol droid that looked an awful lot like Jabba's translator from the 2008 animated movie.

Now that's a droid I could care less about. The Dooku Pilot Droid is a robot a lot of fans have wanted for ten years just to have a wider variety of droid designs in their collection. It would be cool if they released the Solar Sailer craft with retractable, fold-down fabric sails, but now that we're not getting Episode II in 3-D the market for a ship seen for just a few short minutes in a prequel is pretty limited....I don't see Hasbro making the Sailer anytime soon, perhaps ever.

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

Just breaking on Jedi Temple Archives:

The Clone Wars line might be dead after the first one or two waves of 2013. A popular German collecting site with a lot of reliable information is very strongly hinting that both the Clone Wars figure line as well as the Class I and II ships and vehicles might be cancelled a few months into the new year.

Linky Linky

If true, at least it lasted almost five years. A shame it started falling apart at the seams starting in 2012. Last year was a pale shadow of what the 2011 lineup offered with only eighteen basic figures the entire year....a lot of them repaints and repacks.

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

I saw the Starship Legends Enterprise-B in the comic shop today when I popped in...and boy oh boy does it look great. I passed on it though since of course I'm waiting for the Enterprise-E later this month. It was great to know these are finally shipping though.

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

I might just have to buy these two Enterprises if and when I see them. I can't get enough Enterprise-B....she's a gorgeous ship.

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

^ I was really impressed with it...I literally had to force myself to put it back down on the shelf and walk away haha. I was pleasantly surprised the comic shop got it shipped so soon. This is a good sign. I think Enterprise-E's shipping date is in a couple of weeks, which is perfect. I asked the owner if he could put one aside for me (I'm a regular there) and he said he would.

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

Refresh my memory: have they made An Enterprise NX-01 yet? If not, have they announced plans to?

I don't recall if they have made one...but I believe that one is part of the line later this year.

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

Oh, good. I'm in the market for a new NX-01 model or toy. There hasn't been a good, affordable one that I can remember since the Art Asylum electronic toy from a decade ago.

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

The NX-01 is also part of the Hot Wheels line as well as mentioned. I will probably end up picking up both.
