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

@Kira's Mom...I wouldn't worry too much about that Renner story...it looks like it originated from Comic Book Movies so I'd take it with a grain of salt since they make up a lot of stuff.

Nice!

Believe it or not, that's still cheaper cheaper than most carded Darth Malaks I've seen over time over here on this side of the pond. Way to go. He usually doesn't go for any cheaper than $35-$40 when I've spotted him.
the cheapest i've ever seen Malak for was $55. i gave up trying to get one for under $35.

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

Most of them I've run into over time seem to fall in the $50-$70 range. Darth Revan slightly less, but still egregiously expensive for what and who he is.

Expanded Universe figures always command a hefty price. Go take a look at current eBay numbers for Jacen and Jaina Solo or Bastila Shan. It's highway robbery conducted by toy geeks.

Wow, it's been a criminally long time since I've posted in this thread. I'm alive and I have some pretty fun toys to show off. Pictures will come later today, and hopefully I'll get better about posting on a regular basis after that.

I actually have a spare carded Bastila Shan. I hate scalpers but when you look at the prices commanded by these figures I'd be lying if I said I wasn't tempted to stick it on eBay.

Geez, you guys are making me feel incredibly lucky to have found Revan, Malak, Malgus, and Bastilla all at retail.

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

If it weren't for my friend's small local toy and collectibles shop I would have had to order many of these harder-to-find EU and other figures online and for vastly inflated prices. I'd rather pay $15 at his shop than $50 online, and that may or may not include shipping.

For a moment there, I was confusing Darth Malak with Darth Malgus, but I remember Malak now. I picked up both him and Darth Revan at a local Target in my area years ago. I think there was a sale on Star Wars figures at the time, so both were marked down around $5 or $6 bucks. Didn't know who the characters were, but they were Old Republic-era Sith Lords and that was good enough for me.

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

I picked up a VC12 Darth Sidious (Revenge of the Sith) from the toy shop for only $5 one weekend, and that was when the VC12 Sidious was still commonly going for $40 or even more on eBay (and the silver foil/Chase variant even higher). That particular Sidious from the second wave of the Vintage Collection tends to demand some impressive prices on the secondary market because it was one of the most difficult of the early Vintage figures to find at retail. I've spoken to several collectors who either never saw him in stores at all or - if they did - spotted just one or two and then he disappeared.

Oh no. I remember seeing that figure before--it was at my local K-Mart where figures tend to pop up quite some time after their initial street release--but I passed on it for some reason (I think I was cutting back on Star Wars figures at time).

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

If you see him again for something approaching a reasonable price, get him.

One of the best Emperor/Sidious action figures ever made.

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

The middle of another month means another figure from Club Infinte Earths. This month finally brings me a character I've wanted forever: Wally West as the Flash.


And here's a pic I've long wanted to be able to take:


Also, odd numbered months bring us some Club Black Freighter, so here's the latest Watchmen figure, Silk Spectre:


Mattel seems to be leaving out bicep swivels a lot not. That is infuriating, especially at the premium we're paying for the Watchmen line.

Not an action figure, but a toy nonetheless, I just bid for a small piece of my childhood on ebay:



She was my favorite fashion doll. I loved her so much more than Barbie. Her clothes were nicer. I hope I win this one.

Nothing like a little bit of nostalgia, huh?

Good luck with the auction. I hope you get it.
