Might not be action figures but I love model kits in all forms though legos my favorite.

That's R5-F7, from the 2007 Toys 'R' Us-exclusive Y-Wing Fighter in 30th Anniversary Collection packaging. He was never released separately or in other sets.

Hawkeye and Black Widow went to D.C. with me this week.

They inspect the hotel room...they were a bit disappointed with the view.





They met a new friend...



Went to the Air and Space Museum...




Had a good night's sleep...



Posed in front of the Washington Monument and a fountain at the National Gallery of Art:





Got a bit lost and had to consult a map...



Finally, Tasha was very happy with the Russian doll ornaments I bought at the Gallery.

That was a trip.

No pun intended.

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

The grand reveal of the 6" Black Series Greedo, to be released in a later wave assortment of the brand new, larger articulated figure line.

I think the eyes could be a different shade of purple (his eyes were never actually pitch black as virtually all of the 3.75" Kenner and Hasbro figures ever made have depicted them. I wouldn't mind a grimier, dirtier wash on his vest and jumpsuit so the colors don't seem so clean and bright, but all in all it's not a bad figure.

Sometimes I let my old X-force figures Rictor and Shatterstar sleep in the same bed I made for them and they have their own adventures getting into trouble and having fun. Sometimes Shatterstar will get into bar fights because some dudes made fun of his eye tattoo.

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

I finally got around to taking some pictures of my new Moebius preassembled Battlestar Galactica Viper and Cylon Raider. I think they are just beautiful. I did add some weathering and battle-damage to both. They came in a "pristine" state and I thought they looked weird not being roughed up. I plan on doing the same to the Battlestar Galactica when she arrives later this month.







(And can I say these were hard as hell to photograph? I couldn't get enough light on them or the aperture small enough to get them completely in focus. Both are only about ten inches long which is a little to small for the camera to properly manage.)

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

Gorgeous. I love that Viper. I had a lot of affection for the original Viper fighters from the original, classic BSG stories of the 1978-80 period and always enjoy looking at those sleek lines.

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

Another look at the brand new, as-yet-unreleased 6" Greedo, just in case the link in the post above doesn't work. Like I said, I'd make his eyes a different shade of purple and give him a slightly dirtier wash on his vest and jumpsuit, but other than that he looks pretty fantastic and might be in stores in Wave 3 of the new 6" line (Wave 2 will contain Slave Leia, Boba Fett, A New Hope Han and Revenge of the Sith Anakin).



And:

The very first packaged look at the upcoming Vintage Collection Republic Gunship, which I believe will be a Toys 'R' Us exclusive and comes with three figures: Yoda, a Clone Pilot for the gunship and one Clone Trooper. At this size and coming with all these features and three action figures I'm guessing the retail price will be about $100 or even more.

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

For anyone interested, Here is a pretty comprehensive list of this year's SDCC exclusives

I do see some missing, like DC Collectibles's Hugo Strange and Green Lantern 4 pack. I plan to pick up those, along with Batusi Batman. DCC's stuff should pop up on Graffiti Designs after the show, and Mattel's on Matty Collector.

Are you considering buying the 6" Boba Fett and Han in Carbonite set? It'll be $45, but you can wait until the Boba gets released all by himself in stores in Wave 2 of the Black Series line and pay just $19.99 for him. The Carbonite Han, however, is strictly a Comic-Con exclusive item and there are no plans on selling him individually at mass retail.

It's a trade-off. Wait and pay less than half for the Boba, but you don't get the really cool and masterfully-sculpted Han. Go ahead and buy the two-pack set and you shell out exclusive convention prices, but you get both characters.
