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

At this point no ultra-obscure background character surprises me anymore. I guess if there's a bright side to this it means the current drought of product caused by last year's colossal mess won't last much longer and we'll return to a wider and more eclectic selection.

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

I made a little house for Hawkeye! (His nest is still occupied.) I bought a little unfinished birdhouse at Michaels, then decorated it. I think Clint and Tasha will feel right at home.

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

We continue to get obscure background characters, and yet still no new Jacen and Jaina figures?

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

I know. If I could explain Hasbro I would, but at least an obscure background guy is preferable to the 56th Mace Windu or 80th version of an Episode II Clone Trooper.

Frankly I don't know how they keep making repeat versions of the same Prequel figures over and over again without hanging themselves.

Oh, BTW, great new pics of Clint and Tasha. You're the gift that keeps on Avenging.

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

Thanks to an update provided by a couple of helpful little Bothans over at Rebelscum it appears we have more characters to look forward to in the new Saga Legends line of $5.99, five-joint figures that start hitting stores towards the end of summer.

The known figures at present are:

1. Anakin Skywalker (ROTS)
2. Obi-Wan Kenobi (ROTS)
3. Yoda (ROTS)
4. Mace Windu
5. Clone Trooper (AOTC)
6. Shock Trooper (ROTS)
7. Super Battle Droid
8. R4-P17 (Obi-Wan's astromech droid in Episodes II and III)
9. Stormtrooper (ANH)
10. Darth Vader (ESB)
11. Boba Fett (ESB)
12. Cyborg Darth Maul (realistic version from The Clone Wars)
13. Clone Captain Rex (realistic version from The Clone Wars)

More will follow. I have little to no doubt that Luke, Han, Leia, Chewbacca and others will also make welcome appearances in the line since Hasbro is planning to shift somewhat away from the Prequels in order to focus more on the older films.

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

I finally went ahead and made a separate Tumblr for Clint and Tasha's adventures, starting from the beginning.

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

Well...I guess we know now why Hasbro ended the Clone Wars line with the announcement this morning of the cancellation of the series. This is disappointing indeed.

Clint and Tasha are excited about the first daffodils in the garden:



I am, too. I'm sick of winter. Bring on spring!

Everything makes them look like they're using Pym Particles. They're so little!

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

I can't remember if I've ever asked you this, but are Clint and Tasha 3-3/4" in scale or a little bigger? I'm guessing 3.75" because of the size of that flower and those grass blades.

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

They're about 4 inches. Tasha is slightly smaller. Those aren't grass blades, though- they're part of the daffodils. They're pretty tall, just over a foot.

ETA- just measured Clint. Exactly 4 inches.

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

Oh, yeah, you're right. I don't see daffodils regularly enough to remember all their details. Thanks for clearing all that up.

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

Funny thing is, my mom plants them all over, so they may as well be grass. She plants tons of them and tulips, too, so there will be plenty even if the moles eat the bulbs.
