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

Scored most of the new 3.75” Black Series figures at my local TRU.

Padme
Luke
Clone Sergeant
Anakin
Biggs
Vader


Didn't see the new Clone Pilot, and passed on the Biker Scout for right now.

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

A man opens the door to Toys R Us and find squat, and you think that of me? No, I am the one who collects!

Mezco Heisenberg. The package calls it an action figure, but that's a tad misleading. There's no articulation at all. Still, Breaking Bad collectibles, yay!


Oh, and I also found the Black Series 6" Sandtrooper today, so that's wave one complete. I gotta say, in a wave of all great figures, this one is the very best. Hasbro is knocking it out of the park with this line so far. If it goes on long enough, it may very well supplant DC Universe as my favorite 6" scale line.

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

Oh, most definitely....the Sandtrooper is far and away the best of the first four 6” Black Series figures. I imagine the plain white Stormtrooper in Wave 3 (?) will be just as great if not moreso.

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

I'm trying to remember. Wave 2 is Han, Leia, Greedo and Boba Fett, right? Then I recall Wave 3 being Bespin Luke, Stormtrooper, Anakin, and Obi-Wan. I hope they don't make us wait too long for Vader.

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

Yeah, Wave 2 will contain Slave Leia, Greedo, Han and the repack of the SDCC Boba Fett (minus the Carbonite Han, of course). No carry forwards from Wave 1.

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

Sigh. So it seems the previously cancelled Damian Wayne figure will be uncancelled and added to the 2014 line up if the sub goes through. Only a few more days left so I doubt this will actually happen. They should just release the damn thing anyway.

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

Found and picked up the Black Series Clone Pilot a couple of hours ago. Now I have the entire first wave except for the rehash and repack of the Biker Scout.

Last year things looked dire, and there was a massive spike on the final day. Damian will convince some more people to sub up. I think it's still very likely this thing will go through, even if reaching tier 2 seems a pipe dream. I'll still be happy to get that containment suit Doomsday, though. It's a pretty rad looking figure.

I got the 60s Penguin and Riddler. This line continues to be a dream come true:


And just for the heck of it, here are the two on top of the other two figures I got yesterday:

I'm going to have to get my hands on some of those new Adam West Batman figures. They're spellbinding!

I managed to snag a 1/2500 scale resin model of the Battlestar Galactica from the new series. Once completed it will measure 23.5 inches.

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

Yeah, I want those 66'Batman figures as well. They look so good.

@OdoWan...I really want that Damian figure. The sculpt looks great, the face looks like the Batman Incorporated figure face...but yeah I hope this goes through. If I had the money, I would get the sub.

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

That just might be the closest replica of Burgess Meredith I've seen outside of a celebrity wax museum. Toy sculpting today is an entire galaxy more advanced than it used to be, at least when it comes to premium, collector-focused items like these.
