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

She's basically a cross between Mara Jade and Boba Fett, at least that's the vibe I get from the game and her action figure. A bounty hunter in protective armor who's really a stunning redhead underneath the helmet.

I don't think the galaxy could survive the awesomsplosion of someone who is a combination of Mara Jade and Boba Fett.

I am still sore about them killing Mara off.

Who knows. Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy keep saying they're not going to be tied down to the Expanded Universe books and graphic novels when Episodes VII, VIII and IX are written and filmed so it's possible Mara could show up in the new trilogy and not be killed off.

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

I finally decided to order a FoC Soundwave off Amazon, since I can't find any locally; that could in part just be due to the post-holiday rush, but it's interesting that the remolded Prime Soundwave (part of the new Beast Hunters subline) has already been released.

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

The original 1980s Soundwave was one of my all-time favorite Transformers as a kid and I got a huge kick out of playing around with his cassette tape features and opening deck. He was a great and sturdy toy from an era not that long ago when the toys tended to hold up better and last longer under repeated wear and tear than they do now.

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

Sigh. No Hot Toys Avengers next month, either. Black Widow, Thor, and Loki have all been delayed until March. This now means that every Avenger left is slated for March. I think I see more delays in the future.

The new mold is kind of nice, despite the issues with his back sticking out. That's really the only major problem with having perhaps the first new Soundwave who can carry minions like his G1 self. The original version of the FoC mold (before they put tha feature in and scaled it up) isn't bad either. I rather like Soundwave having a communications vehicle sort of mode, even though it was cool having a non-vehicular G1 mode as well.

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

Gentle Giant is doing a Darth Malgus Mini-Bust!

Looks like it might be a great addition if you buy collectibles of this quality and nature. I know we have at least a few Darth Malgus fans who visit this thread, so good luck if this interests you!

Here's a much clearer and higher-res pic of the 12" Star Wars figures found in the Canadian Walmart.

Oooooooooooh.

I wish I had the money for the Mythos stuff. Those are some damn amazing statues.

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

That's just one of his heads. The other has a more composed, focused expression without bared teeth, as if he's just located an enemy and has begun devising an attack strategy. This Maul looks incredible. I almost like it as much as I do the Desert Nomad Obi-Wan.

This line kicks ass.

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

I'd love to see a Mythos Leia depicting Carrie Fisher as a newly-elected teenage member of the Imperial Senate and with a slightly different outfit and hairstyle to reflect her being a couple of years younger. Or perhaps even an Anakin Skywalker from the 10-year transition period between Jake Lloyd and Hayden Christensen, using morphing to create a teenage Anakin that's a halfway point between the podracing little boy and the Jedi hero of the Battle of Geonosis.

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

There are art examples they could use as the basis for that sculpt. The photo cover to Greg Bear's Rogue Planet is one that immediately comes to mind. I would like to see even a figure of Young Teen Padawan Anakin.
