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

Apologies if this has been posted previously, but another update on Square Enix's JJ-Trek Kirk and Spock figures. These look like the finished sculpts. Still no release date on them as of yet. I'm guessing probably second quarter of this year maybe? They don't look too bad at all.

Hahahahaha! I laughed way harder at this than was probably necessary.

Hawkeye #3 was one hell of a comic, wasn't it?

The Superior Spider-Man approves of his new action figure:

Actually Otto-Peter would probably find some kind of flaw in it So awesome looking though.

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

Wave 3 has officially been spotted at retail.

Naturally, your mileage will vary depending upon your own local stores, but it's nice to know that the third wave assortment has surfaced in a few scattered places. Vizam and Darth Plagueis are my main targets in this one.

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

Yeah, finding him will be the trick. Expanded Universe Sith Lords are always quick and popular sellers, and like most of the past ones he's packed just one per case assortment I believe.

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

I have been a busy collector over the last couple of months. First off, I bought this little beauty for myself as a birthday present. She was an absolute bitch to track down for a reasonable price. I have been looking for two years and it popped up online about two weeks ago for under $100 so a nabbed her. Love this figure though and she was worth every exorbitant penny I paid. It is made by Revoltech and the sculpt is astonishing. She measures about nine inches high with thirty-five articulation joints. Almost all of the parts are transparent with just the right amount of iridescent blue to set off the details. Happy Birthday to me!




I also managed to either grab or was gifted the remaining Doctor Who figures I was looking for. All I need now is a 5-inch Clara (if they ever bother to make one) and I have preordered the War Doctor, which comes out in March. And I am just thrilled I was able to score K-9! I have been trying to get him for several years.





And last but not least... the 6-inch Star Wars Wave 1 & 2. I know you have seen them already but I thought I would post pictures of my set. Since I live in the middle of nowhere and finding anything in a store here in Podunk is impossible, I cheated and ordered both waves from Entertainment Earth. (The third wave has been preordered from them as well.) Doing it that way has killed the thrill of the hunt but I still absolutely love them. My favorites are Boba and the Sandtrooper.

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

You've scored all eight 6" figures? Even Greedo? That's awesome. I have yet to see Greedo anywhere and he's the only figure in the first two wave assortments that I haven't spotted on shelves. Congrats! the photos look great. I also like the Sarah Jane and K-9.

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

Entertainment Earth has been selling the waves either with the four figures separate or together in case. I just bought the cases. Basically all I did was point and click to get them. Like I said, the thrill of the hunt was just not there... which I find very disappointing. The 6-inch series hasn't made to any of the local stores, not even the local comic book store has them. I had no choice really unless I wanted to drive two hours and chance it in the city.

And if I get a minute I will take some close-ups of Greedo. He is rather nice. His head sculpt is very detailed.

The fact that you have Fett makes me hate you. I will find him some day. I will!

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

They nailed Carrie Fisher's height and proportions compared to Harrison and Mark. Her 6" figure is actually a smidge over 5" in height which more or less matches how she measured on the original film sets compared to her senior co-stars. I have to give Hasbro some serious credit for this line even if some of the figures are incredibly hard to spot at retail. It by itself almost makes up for the train wreck that was the 2012-13 mass retail situation.

Okay, that's an exaggeration, but the 6" line rocks.
