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

Hey, Stark is the one with the money! He can be their godfather if it makes him feel any better.

Now I have plans for all my Avengers with the babies! "No Hulk! Don't smash babies!"

I imagine Thor laughing at the one about to hit Clint in the head and saying "Haha! I like this one. It has spirit!"

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

It's official.

This:



Will be the look for most Star Wars toys and collectible merchandise starting in July or August. The green Yoda look will be retained mostly by LEGO until the end of the year while almost everything else will switch over to this design.

The very first wave of 2013 Movie Heroes has just hit eBay.

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

It kinda reminds me of the packaging for the Episode III line in color, and emphasis on Vader. I don't exactly like it, though. I think it looks goofy.

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

2014 and beyond will be the era of the Original Trilogy in 3-D and the brand new Sequel Trilogy. I hope this means a return to Vintage Collection-style and more classic Vader/Luke/Leia logos for the packaging we'll see in the coming years.

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

I wonder if the new movie is going to throw a wrench in the Original Trilogy's 3D releases, though. I wouldn't think they would want any overlap. Is the plan now to release all three in 2014? That would be nice.

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

That seems to be the current plan.

Episode I: 2012
Episodes II,III: 2013
Original Trilogy: 2014
Episode VII: 2015

Seven movies over a 39-month time span.

Crisp, hi-res images of 2013 Movie Heroes Wave 1!

Mostly sloppy repacks or not, the packaging looks great.

I still have these in a drawer:

They belong to my Hayabusa set. I think I'm gonna buy Clone Troopers, replace their heads and do a paint job...

Very cool....I'd love to see the pics of that once you complete the project.

Part 2 of Barton's Babysitting Adventure!

"Get these mother fuckin'...awwwww, they're cute."


"Hulk like puny babies!"


"But where did they come from?" "Well, Cap...when a mommy and a daddy love each other very much..."


"This tiny human, I like it! ANOTHER!" "Here, take mine. What annoying little creatures."

The Life Model Decoys of Clint and Tasha (I decided against putting goatees on them!) watch the craziness from above.



Meanwhile, Clint and Tasha had fun in the snow today.

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

Found an extra Nom Anor and Rebel Fleet Trooper at my local TRU earlier today. Both figures are pretty hard to find and more or less always have been.
