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

Does anyone else have the Diamond Select TOS Enterprise? I was wondering what folks around here thought of it?

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

I've heard nothing but great things from the rest of the ship's currently available...I'm planning on eventually getting the A as well. I'm sure the TOS Enterprise is right up there.

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

I just had a great idea for my next Avengers action figures party (after Easter). Cinco de Mayo! It would involve Hulk beating up a pinata...but first I have to find an action figure sized pinata. Or make one. Found a source for miniature margaritas, tequila bottles, and Corona beer bottles already.

I do. Actually I posted a picture of it here just the other day. And I love it. It is very well done and comes without the grid lines on the upper saucer. As a purist, I was shocked that DS got that detail correct. No one ever does. The only problem I had with it is the base is rather fragile.

To be honest I love their version of the TOS Enterprise so much I plan on buying the cutaway version DS is releasing in June.

All of DST's ships have been great so far. I actually have two of the TOS Enterprises. Ironically, neither of them are the regular version of the ship (i.e. one with glowing nacelles). I have the "Cage" and "Where No Man Has Gone Before" versions. Both are pretty awesome. It just depends on which version of the ship you want. To date there have made:

Regular TOS Enterprise
"The Cage"
"Where No Man Has Gone Before"
"Mirror Mirror" ISS Enterprise
HD Enterprise (from the remastered series)

I know that they are planning to rerelease the HD Enterprise.

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

I'd been sort of wondering if anybody had any plans on making an Enterprise based on the Remastered TOS. I wonder if it would cost more than the regular TOS ship based on the original shooting model.

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

I think that question has been posed to AA/Diamond Select before and they're sort of non committal in their response. They're basically keeping whatever ships they are planning a secret right now. Defiant for instance is a ship that fans have been clamouring for, but they refuse to confirm or deny it's in their plans right now.

The fact that a Defiant hasn't been made is nothing short of a travesty.

I was dinking around with Nom Anor a bit, and finally managed to get his cloak in a position that looks good:

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

I'm liking it! Congrats on getting that annoying little cloak/cape thingy of his to look halfway presentable. Not everyone can pull that off based on the stories I read.

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

In all honesty, it did require a little dab of glue on back spikes to hold in place. The hood is tucked back under the cape, and is useless in this position, but the hood is useless anyways. It is in effect a cape more than a cloak, now. I like the way it looks, though.

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

Nom Anor is a great figure worth the attention he's gotten, but the designers really dropped the ball with that cloak. The one that comes with Darth Malgus is far better looking and more practical, and at least with that one you don't have to stick any plastic body parts through the back of the thing to try to get it to look good.

Cloth outfits almost never look right at this scale. I really wish they would just give up on that already and sculpt the damn things.
