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

Can any of the Avengers handle a cupcake of that size? Even Hulk would be like: "Hulk need knife and time to finish!"

I think the group could do it together. Clint's eyes are just bigger than his stomach!

Packaged and other images of the Black Series 6" Wave 3 figures (Episode III Obi-Wan, plain white Stormtrooper, Bespin Luke).

That Stormtrooper is likely going to be even hotter and harder to find in stores than the current Sandtrooper.

There's no current picture of the fourth figure in Wave 3, but rumor has it that it'll be the Episode III Anakin Skywalker recently shown on websites.
I am not happy about this. Why are we getting another Luke when we could use Darth Vader or Chewbacca? I was kind of disappointed with the choice of the Stormtrooper but the more I look at it the more I want it.

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

I don't get some of the selections for the first few waves, either. If we're getting two Lukes in the first twelve figures why not a classic Farmboy Luke from Episode IV? I have nothing against the ESB Bespin outfit, but it's hardly as iconic as Luke's white Farmboy shirt from the original film.

I have a feeling that a Darth Vader is coming in a future wave and Chewbacca is probably on the to-do list before the 6" line ends, but who knows just when. I'm just glad we're getting an entire wave (#2) of nothing but Original Trilogy characters after this past year of Prequel overkill. I also wouldn't mind seeing an OT Emperor or a Darth Sidious at some point, possibly with interchangeable heads like the new 6" Maul so you can use Ian McDiarmid's normal face before the Jedi Purge or his deformed appearance from the Imperial Era.

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

Check out this enormous list that allegedly comes from somewhere within Hasbro itself, detailing a slew of Star Wars product that may or may not eventually hit retail shelves at some point in the foreseeable future. There are more than a few already-released, outdated and just plain cancelled items on the list so take things with a grain of salt, but if this is an actual long-term product list from within the company itself then there might be more plastic fun between now and the launch of Episode VII than many of us thought.

The Daleks are still pretty easy to pick out on those blind packs.

Halloween party with the Avengers!



Pumpkin "carving":



Steve guards the candy table and Thor bobs for apples:



"I thought this was a costume party, Clint!" "What costume?" Tasha is going to smack Clint with her broom.



Loki has made some new friends and brought them as dates to the party:

Part 2- handing out candy to trick-or-treaters.




"Give Hulk a break of Kit Kat bar!"



Clint is drowning in candy!

Nice.

On the bright side of things, if the Hulk gains ten pounds from gorging himself on a pile of Halloween candy and treats then it won't really be noticeable.
