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

I'm looking more forward to OdoWan's post than the actual countdown to Christmas.

It's getting that way, isn't it?

This has to be a thing every year now. It won't be Christmas without it!

And just remember: these are just the first three pictures. There are many more to go, and if these were this great then you need to get some popcorn and fasten your seatbelt!

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

I will certainly do another Christmas photoplay next year, but I don't know if I'll have another 12 days in me.

Todays will be late, since I'll be away from home most of the day. I've got a certain film about a person of short stature to see.

Toulouse Lautrec and the Desolation of Paris?

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

Early Christmas present for Thor! The Lady Sif joins my Avengers shelf.



Screw MCU canon. I'm going for Norse mythology canon! Sif kicks ass.

Double date with Clint and Tasha!



I see many new adventures in the future.

Sif is so much cooler than Jane, anyways. Give me the ass kicking warrior woman any day.

Sorry for the delay. Here's our next day:

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

I just found this very cool montage of every basic-carded Kenner Star Wars figure from the legendary 12-Backs of 1978 straight through the Power of the Force (silver collector's coin) line of 1985 that brought the classic Kenner era of SW figures to an end (the animated Droids and Ewoks figures were concurrent and followed, but they weren't movie-related action figures based on the Saga and had brief, limited runs).

Thought this might be a fun, colorful trip down memory lane for some of you. It is for me.

^Is there a higher res version of that?

Here's more of your daily dose of Christmas cheer:


EDIT: Whoops! I forgot one of the Ashes. That's fixed.

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

That image is the only resolution and copy that I saw. I wish it were a little more crisp and sharp myself, but even as this resolution it looks pretty cool and I did the count - it appears they did indeed include every carded figure from the beginning to the end unless you count the Ewoks and Droids figures, which some don't include with the live-action film characters.

They even remembered to include the 1985 Anakin Skywalker and Yak Face, which were not sold in American stores and were only available on the blister cards in other countries.

BTW: love the Catwoman figures.
