New Trinity War box set, Diana has a new head sculpt...it's not Jim Lee...but it doesn't look like Cliff Chiang either.

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

Turns out Hasbro had been in the process of changing the packaging for the Vintage Collection's Kit Fisto but the altered cardback never made it to production.

The VC29 Kit Fisto figure comes on an Attack of the Clones cardback with a photo from the Battle of Geonosis, but the figure is based on the actor and the character's facial appearance in Revenge of the Sith. Collectors and fans noticed this and told Hasbro, who went through the trouble of designing a brand new ROTS cardback for a rerelease of Kit, but plans were cancelled at some point and the changed packaging never saw the light of day.

The only evidence that the alternate design exists was the cardback reverse of a later production run of the VC31 Obi-Wan Kenobi from Clones. Check it out. Interesting. I think I would have liked the Sith version better than the one we actually got.

The one that was actually produced and made it to retail:



And the one that was designed to replace it but never did:

Brand new hi-res pics of three of the four figures in the first wave of the 6" Black Series line, due in stores sometime during or near the end of summer. The only character not depicted is Darth Maul.

I like their boxes, I know it's a small thing but I was wondering if we would get the box packaging again.

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

The black collar on Kirk Prime's uniform looks wonky and Photoshopped, but other than that I'm really liking this packaging design. It incorporates elements of both TOS and the Abramsverse so as to embrace both timelines and the designers chose some good colors and images of the two different Enterprise 1701s.

I finished a cross stitch piece tonight, and Clint and Tasha approve.

Nice work there!

Tasha always has that scolding, intense expression on her face though. When she wishes somebody Happy Birthday she must have to remind them she's not being sarcastic.

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

It's funny, though- for a figure with a fixed face, Hawkeye looks like he has a different expression in several of my photos. It's weird.

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

Pre-orders for the magnificent new Sideshow Collectibles Darth Vader (Return of the Jedi Deluxe version) are now up.

The price tag is pretty steep, but this just might be the greatest sixth-scale Star Wars figure that Sideshow's ever done. He even comes with a severed right gauntlet feature that lets you recreate the scene where Luke cuts off his father's hand during their climactic lightsaber battle on the second Death Star.

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

My LCS has a huge action figure selection, old and new. Tomorrow they're having a Memorial Day 50% off all action figures sale. I'm afraid I may go a little nuts. I'll probably have some pics of a heavy haul tomorrow.

And I deliver!

I did wind up going kinda nuts. I picked up the Play Arts Kai Arkham City Batman, the Dark Knight Rises Batman, two Star Trek original series Art Asylum two-packs, an Enterprise-E, and a DC Universe Captain Atom. Heck of a haul, and I made out like a bandit:
