Nice.

I need to get more Art Asylum Trek figures.

Man, I am loving these Batman figures. I just can't stop taking pictures:

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

I like the animated-style figure more than I do the one based on the Nolan/Bale film trilogy. But then I'm a little biased: I still think the Michael Keaton costume from the first Tim Burton film is the best Batman suit of the modern era.

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

They're both great, but my personal preference is for the Nolan one. It has a poseable cape vs the fixed one for the Arkham City figure, and that goes a long way.

It also possible that since they are a slightly stylized take, that your preference does gravitate toward the one that you haven't seen in live action, and thus can look a little different.

Apparently this thing has existed for a while, but I stumbled on it by accident. I can only say

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

This is a photo from the "Darth's Mall" merchandise tent down at Disney Star Wars Weekends, but it shows that the brand new, much anticipated and quite huge 31" Darth Vader by Jakks Pacific is just about ready to hit mass retail. The more I see of this thing the more I want to get one, and their positioning on the racks right next to the 3.75" carded action figures provides a good demonstration of just how big this Vader really is.



It'll probably run $30 - $40, but considering the scale and how much well-sculpted and detailed plastic and soft goods fabric you get for that price it's quite the bargain.

They are indeed. I got them for $30 a piece at my LCS's Memorial Day 50% off sale. I've always wanted to pick up some figures from them, but the cost has been a bit prohibitive. Now the flood gates are opened, though, and I'll probably wind up with more in the near future.

That's impressive...they look better "in person" than they did on BTTS. "The Dark Knight "/"The Dark Knight Rises" in particular looks awesome.

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

Those Toys 'R' Us-exclusive Batman(Nolan) three-packs with one Dark Knight figure from each film seems to linger, at least at my store. They look pretty good, but it seems it's not as hot an exclusive item as some probably thought it'd be.

Still, I'm pretty sure TRU and Mattel have made some money off that set since it's largely straight repacks in new packaging.

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

Yeah, those sets are really in abundance. It's really a collector aimed set, though. Most parents will look at it and say "what do you need three Batmans for?" It's a nice set, though, and while mostly reuse, each figure does have something new about it to entice a purchase.

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

See, this is how you do straight repacks of older figures. Make them a store exclusive so they don't pile up in every conceivable retail outlet from Maine to California and use some of the best molds you have in your vault. While Mattel is a toy company that I've never been too impressed with when it comes to action figures their Dark Knight Trilogy three-pack set was a better idea for a straight repack of older product than some I've seen come out of other companies for other film franchises in the recent past.

Plus, Batman's always hot with somebody somewhere even if they're six years old.

I still want to get that three pack. Especially for the "Batman Begins" Batman suit.
