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

Great conclusion, man! Thanks for all the hard work you've put into this project over the last twelve days! We all loved the pics and now they'll be immortal in the pages of this thread!

Okay, I lied. I stuck Clint and Tasha in a Nativity scene.

Lost in a forest of cake pops.

Ooooh. Those cake pops look yummy. What did you make them with?

If we keep this up we're gonna need a Cooking and Baking Discussion Thread and half of us will gain two pants and shirt sizes as a result.

They've hit!



This is at a Toys "R" Us at some unspecified location in the country, but it appears the very first 2013 product has been stocked for late Christmas shoppers!

They're retailing for $27.99 each, which is way too high for two figures and a mini-rig vehicle if you ask me.

No kidding. That's excessive. Thankfully, I can skip them, since I collect only OT and EU for Star Wars these days.

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

I might take the plunge (just once) for the excellent Obi-Wan and Blue Battle Droid Pilot with the MTT Fighter, but that's it. The others don't interest me at all and the only extras of the MTT set I'll get will be after the stores slash and liquidate them.

I'm a sucker for blue Battle Droids. We never got enough of them over the years.

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

Found out my New 52 Justice League Superman has shipped I was hoping he'd get here before Christmas, but most likely before my birthday on the 28th I've been anticipating him as much as I was Batman and Wonder Woman so I'm eager for him to arrive!

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

Is the toy chain ToyZam anywhere near you?

Stop in there for a few minutes and take a look at their action figure pegs.

It might be just a seasonal toy store and will fold after the New Year, but if you have one in your area it should be open for business right now.

Current ToyZam locations across the country.

I've never even heard of them. Not a one in my state anyways.

I've never heard of them either, don't think we have those in Canada. At least not in Vancouver.

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

I think it's a seasonal toy chain that started up in the past couple of years. Think of them like the old KayBee Toys, only they close their doors after the New Year and don't reopen again until November....sometimes in a different location.

At least that's the impression I've gotten.

Haven't seen any yet in my area. I do kind of miss KayBees though. We used to have one back when we had a local mall near me.

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

Not-so-fun fact: Bain Capital (Mitt Romney's old firm) played a leading role in the demise of KayBee Toys during the last decade. Once Bain was finished with it there were no operational stores left.
