I don't know which is neater and cooler...your delicious-looking gingerbread house or all the funny Hawkeye photos you take.

Well, I didn't actually bake the house, it was a kit. I cheated.

And I thought Hawkeye and the house was funny, because Jeremy Renner's next movie is Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.

I didn't know that...cool. I was unaware he was making that movie and, thus, the connection in your photos. Thanks!

In toy news I managed to find a $10 Legacy Collection (2009) Gungan Warrior with the gold-colored battle horn at my friend's shop this morning. Some guy came in yesterday and traded some of his figures for newer stuff and the Gungan was one of his trades.

Too bad there's not a Gemma Aterton action figure anywhere.

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

I just picked this Jean-Luc Picard action figure. A little nervous because I could not find anything on it and hope I did not over pay. Gave $100 for it.

It is a certified signature wizard Jean-Luc Picard Tapestry II action figure. It is in a clear package. Picard is in a green uniform.

I collect a wide range of things from Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel to what ever catches my eye.

Sorry I tried to attach a photo but it did not post.

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

You're still a cadet. It'll take a little while before you're allowed to post images. If you post the image I can quote it for you to make it show up.

Welcome, by the way. It's always great to get another member on the boards, especially one that can be active in this thread.

If there's a full sized Slave 1 planned for 2013 I must confess it's news to me.
There's a rumour of an ESB Slave 1 which will presumably use the same mold as the Clone Wars battle pack version. That one is fairly massive (much larger than the 2002 one) and makes this new one look like a micro machine.

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

Oh, yeah...the Clone Wars Slave 1 was the one that came in the huge $100 Toys "R" Us gift set with the Anakin, astromech droid, young Boba Fett and Bossk figures wasn't it? That's the only animated Bossk that's ever been made in plastic as far as I know. That ship was pretty hefty and good looking if I remember correctly...I could see them tweaking and repainting it for a movie-style release.

In other news I had some figures arrive today:

1 x CW15 Scuba Ahsoka
1 x CW16 Training Super Battle Droid
1 x CW17 Clone Commander Wolffe
1 x CW18 Clone Commander Fox
1 x Vintage Collection Naboo Pilot
1 x Vintage Collection Gungan Warrior
1 x Legacy Collection (2009) Nien Nunb (in red B-Wing flight gear)

Yep! There's a few custom repaints knocking around which look great. I have it and to be honest, anything larger would just be silly.

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

I remember how popular the Clone Wars Slave 1 set was around here. I only saw one...that was it. Not being that heavily into the Clone Wars animated product at the time I passed on it (the $100+ price tag sure didn't help) but it was very cool looking. Bossk the bounty hunter in animated form looked incredible...I wish Hasbro had repacked him separately on an individual cardback so more people would have had a shot at owning him.

I think the astro droid was also unique to that set and had never been done before...unless it was "Goldie" or R4-P17 or one of the astros that had already been made individually, but I don't think it was.

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

I can't even trust my figures to open a bag of potato chips without making a huge mess. Your Hawkeye is quite a talented little fella.

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

Don't feel too bad. I don't think many people have the new Hulk figure or figures. Ask OdoWan...I think he's also had trouble finding Hulk Avengers toys since before the movie first came out. Hulk is supposedly the character that's the hardest to find in stores and continues to be so.
