The consensus seems to be that the next ship will probably be the Reliant. The ship that has been demanded most is the Enterprise C. To date, the C is the only Enterprise that DST has never made.

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

Sorry for any confusion. You said the Regular TOS Enterprise and the HD Enterprise were separate Diamond Select ships, so I assumed one might look a little different from the other in some way.

I haven't seen pics of the HD ship that they released so I don't know what the differences are. I don't own either one.

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

I don't know if anybody's seen videos from the New York Toy Fair held at the beginning of last month and I can't recall if this is something I've already posted, but for anybody interested this is a very nice 9-minute look at the Star Wars displays.

Black Series. Saga Legends. Two-packs. 12" figures. Electronic 13" Anakin-becomes-Vader that won a prize for best toy at the last UK Toy Fair. It's probably stuff you already know about and some of you don't care for, but it's the best look we've had yet at what stores will be carrying towards the end of this summer (after all these months of little or nothing new).

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

I did see a listing on ebay for two different Legends Jacen (no Jania) and one was for $59.99 and the other was $89.99 or something like that.

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

Pretty wild, huh? K'Kruhk (the Whiphid Jedi Knight) from their same wave often commands similar prices. I personally think Hasbro should do a special online- or retailer-exclusive two-pack with straight repacks of Jacen and Jaina just to help satisfy some of the demand and help drive down the prices of the single-carded versions from 2010 (Hasbro isn't seeing a single penny of that $89.99 so they have no vested interest in sky-high secondary market prices), but with the current transitional state of the Star Wars 3.75" lines and cost and corner cutting by the company I don't think such a re-release will occur.

At least not anytime soon.

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

The 89.99 one was a little shocking, but the 59 buck one though seemed like a rare price on Big Bad Toy Store or something. Both ridiculous prices....I do remember that figure though now.

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

Few modern (1995-present) action figures rival the Freeze Frame packaging variant of the POTF2 Weequay Skiff Guard (1998). A buddy of mine recently took a look at eBay to check on the going price for one of those.

Almost $600.

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

I saw an Amidala figure (I don't remember from what line now) that was going for $499 bucks I think. It was in its box as well.

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

$499 for a Natalie Portman action figure? Whoa. I didn't think there was any version of her in 3.75" scale that even remotely approached that kind of high-priced insanity.

There is an ultra-rare packaging variation of the 1998 "Flashback Photo" Medal Ceremony Princess Leia that can command upwards of two grand, and that's because the photo insert with the pull-down tab has a much different photograph of Leia's mother than the version that was sold at mass retail.

The version of Medal Ceremony Leia you saw in stores had a "Flashback" picture of Natalie Portman in conventional dress and hairstyle holding a Naboo blaster pistol. The super-valuable variant has a photo of the Queen in regal dress and facial makeup from the end of Episode I.

Okay I just did a double check and it looks like a Custom statue.

A Marvel Legends Amidala, huh? I wish ebay could ban people putting irrelevant words in the listing title just to get more search hits.

Oh, dear. I have some competition:

Naked Hawkeye.

It would be funnier if it was the Hot Toys movie Hawkeye.

This one is my favorite so far. Naughty!

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

The game was a week ago, but Cam the Ram is still not over Colorado State's loss to Louisville (I'm not, either!). Hawkeye and Black Widow try to comfort him.



Poor old Cam.

My toys help each other. My own little Toy Story!

There's no way to get his vest off without damaging it, otherwise I might.....oblige you.
