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

I picked up Justice League New 52 Wonder Woman today. I must say that while I'm impressed with her sculpt and it captures the Jim Lee art really well...she has terrible articulation compared to my New 52 Batman. Also her sword barely fits into her hand, which kind of sucks. I'm still pleased with the purchase though. I also went to buy Arthur but he was surprisingly sold out! I might have to pick him up online...I can't wait until Superman is out next month.

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

Did anybody here score any interesting toys or other collectibles on Black Friday yesterday? Any fun (or disturbing) toy shopping reports to make from the post-Thanksgiving retail blizzard?

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

Black Friday doesn't usually seem to be the day for scoring toys. I tend to think of it more as the day for cheap video games or blu rays. The Wal-Mart 8 packs were the only really great deal I saw that would have been of interest to collectors.

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

My friend's toy shop had one thing of interest today: a VC12 Darth Sidious from Episode III(the one with the scary face and brown furry Chancellor's robes that a lot of collectors have had trouble finding). I've been wanting a second one so I couldn't turn him down...plus because the cardback had been creased a little and my friend and his partners were having kind of a Black Friday/Thanksgiving weekend sale they let me have it for just $4.00!

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

Picked up the 2007 Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes collector's tin Cantina Band figure set for just $10...it was in a near-mint package but was marked down for quick sale due to the Thanksgiving weekend. When it was brand new a few years ago it was a $29.99 Walmart exclusive.

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

The very first 2013 Star Wars ships and vehicles have just been found at a Toys "R" Us in Australia!

The hunt is on.

Which means figures are not far behind. After getting a breather for a bit at retail, Hasbro and Mattel both resume their assault on my wallet.

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

I know the feeling. Something tells me the first new figures we'll see will be the final figures in the 2012 Movie Heroes line (Episode III Anakin, Sandtrooper, Boba Fett and blast-apart Battle Droid) since they've already been spotted in East Asia. The first waves of 2013 Droid Factory, Clone Wars and Movie Heroes aren't supposed to hit until at least January but we'll see...sometimes new stuff hits retail sooner than originally planned.

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

Finally got my shipping notice for my Hot Toys Hawkeye. I'll have him on Friday. Oh, and the 14 day notice for charging on Captain America, so he'll be coming down the pipe very soon, too.

Sweet....you'll have to post pics after you get him. The online photo I saw looked great.

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

If all goes well, and there are no more delays, then Black Widow should be coming before the end of December as well. This will be a Marvel-ous month.

Ok, sorry. I couldn't resist.

I'm so jealous. I just couldn't justify spending that much money on a toy this year, though.

Hey, as long as you don't go on eBay and spend $70 on one new Star Wars action figure you have nothing to worry about or be ashamed of.

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

Not sure if there are any Sailor Moon fans in the thread, i used to watch the show as a teenage and understand that there is a new series in the works for next year, but have to admit that these look incredible...
