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

Have Hasbro plans for the figure lines in 2013 changed? Has it had a last-second change of heart about the Vintage Collection?

If they were to make the line out of repacks, it would be awesome if they decided to put out some of the figures that were impossible to find, like Jacen and Jaina Solo. Maybe some of the Droid Factoryy figures as standard releases. Any way they do it, I'll be thrilled to have the Vintage Collection keep shelf presence after this dismal last year.

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

I'd love for them to make all-new Vintage figures next year but right now the news is leaning in favor of reissuing popular 2012 figures without new product. If I had my way we'd get a TVC Jawa, Chewbacca, Hammerhead (Momaw Nadon), Power Droid in classic Kenner colors and at least several others from the Classic Trilogy.

But you know, I'll take old 2012 cases of figures showing up late as some unofficial "Greatest Hits" assortments. They'll be the 2012 packages without anything new on them but since so many people never found Shae Vizla, Starkiller or Grand Moff Tarkin among others this can only be good news.

After the abysmal mess that was distribution this past year the least Hasbro can do is try to get the product to the people, even if it's late. Now if we can just do something about the 2011 Ponda Baba wave with the Hoth Solider army builder....

I'm having so much fun with my figures. It's ridiculous! I thought about doing a Nativity scene with Hawkeye and Black Widow...but that would have been too much.

So here's bad boy Clint instead.

Unleash the fun!

I have to start wrapping gifts soon...I have a feeling Hawkeye is going to be tied up in ribbons.

Cool! Feel free to post more pics if you have them! We don't get enough He-Man/MotU pictures in here.
That's about the only modern MotU figure that I bought. Some of my original 80s MotU figures are still around in storage somewhere.

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

Oh, that's okay. Post any photos you want, really. Any toys you own, old or new. We'd just like to see whatever you have.

I can't wait to see what OdoWan has planned for today's "Twelve Days of Christmas" toy motif.

(*Fingers crossed*)

Come on, Sith Lords and Stormtroopers....

I'm trying to use a variety of lines in this. Don't worry, eddie. There will be more Star Wars.

To paraphrase a character from the old Twin Peaks:

Damn fine photos.
