I'll be disappointed if we don't get an Alice Eve figure. I would expect an Uhura figure as well since it would seem she has a huge role in the film. I don't see why we wouldn't get the entire cast. We don't even know who Peter Weller is playing yet or have even seen him yet. I have high expectations for the line...but we'll see. I have a feeling I'm going to be disappointed
Toy companies are afraid of female action figures. The 6" movie Avengers line never got a Black Widow. The odds of Uhura or Carol seem slim to none no matter how large a role they have in the film.

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

Kind of makes me wonder if the new 6” Black Series will bother with a Princess Leia figure or just stick to male characters, cyborgs and droids.

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

Great point about the female action figures...probably explains why we never got a Miranda Tate movie masters figure. With that explanation, I'd be less disappointed since that makes a lot of sense and something I didn't consider when I made my previous remarks.

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

The most recent 3.75” SW action figure of the female persuasion (Jocasta Nu) is one that would probably be a bad pegwarmer and linger in stores for months had she not been a Brian's Toys online exclusive. Quite a few female action figures in the line have been bad sellers with the recent exceptions of Sandstorm Leia from the JEDI Deleted scenes and two EU ladies: Bastila Shan and Shae Vizla.

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

Also regarding Toy Fair news this weekend...I'm kind of hoping for "Kick-Ass 2" action figure news. We got somewhat of a line for "Kick-Ass". There are way more characters this time around and more potential for a toy line than with the first one, so I'm interested in finding out if there are any plans for one.

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

The crummy case ratio of the final wave of Clone Wars figures?

Hasbro claims they listen, but they don't seem to show it most of the time.

^ I thought you might like it. It even has the little pod that comes out.

I've been looking for a toy of this ship, but this well beyond anything I could have hoped for!

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

DC Unlimited has finally hit retail in my area! Well, the Batman half of it at least. I was too late to grab Batgirl, the figure I want most from the first wave, but I did manage to snag a Golden Age Penguin:


He's mostly the same figure as the DCUC wave 1 Penguin, but in different colors and with a different head sculpt. I never got that Penguin, though, so I'm happy to have him.

That's cool....he looks great, man. Of course I can never look at a Penguin action figure or doll the same way again after Robot Chicken's "March of the Penguin."

If you haven't seen it, YouTube it. It'll forever alter the way you look at the guy.

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

In some crappy news, McFarlane has snapped the Assassin's Creed license away from NECA. Granted, NECA was not using it to its full potential, just released Ezio variant after Ezio variant. However, long gone are the days of McFarlane making quality product. Their Walking Dead line is one of the worst pieces of crap hogging shelf space right now.
