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

Winter Solider is still jealous of Clint. "Hey Barton...'Tasha's my girlfriend now!"


Art Aslyum provided a ship release update a couple of days ago, for comic book shops getting theirs ships. Looks like next month is when we can expect the Enterprise-E. This month is when the Enterprise-D was supposed to be released, and the Klingon Bird of Prey from "Star Trek III: The Search For Spock" has already been shipped.

That was brilliant, KM. I look forward to more of the Avengers' misadventures in parenthood.

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.
EXTRA Nom Anor?

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

I know the feeling.

My apologies, buddy.

To be frank it's one of the only Nom Anors I've ever seen in a store. He's usually the first figure in his wave to sell out because he's an Expanded Universe alien that looks like Skeletor. I just had good timing, that's all.

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

Skeletor is insulted that you would compare a pretender such as Nom Anor to the Evil Lord of Destruction!!!!

Are those just ebay prices on those figures? If so, zoinks, they're expensive!


Our brief first glimpse at Mattel's "Man of Steel" line.

Yep, those are the current eBay prices.

There's one born every day.

Babysitting! Not parenthood. They're still not sure where the babies came from...

Of course, the babies in Clint's nest have given me ideas for Easter.

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

There's a Buy One Get One 50% Off sale on Star Wars in effect at all Toys "R" Us stores until at least this Saturday or Sunday if anybody else is interested and was looking for an excuse to pick up two figures for $14.98.

The new mini-vehicles with figures in the 2013 green Yoda packaging are also part of the sale. You can get two sets for $34.99.

I was just at my TRU today. Nothing but Episode I figures as far as the eye can see.

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

Mine still have a few Millennium Falcons and MTT Transports that just aren't selling and just....well, sit there. The $179.99 pricepoint on the MTT and the whopping $249.99 on the Falcon just aren't helping when you can go to a Walmart and score the Transport for $129 or even less depending on the store and if there's an unannounced markdown still in effect.

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

Just scored an extra light-up saber Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan at Target. Most of their current Star Wars 3.75" action figures are on markdown they had put out a case of the light-up Movie Heroes wave in the past day or so.

Solid figures. Quite frankly they have two of the best Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor heads ever sculpted in this scale, which help offset the bulkier bodies that contain the batteries and circuits for their lightsabers.

Sideshow's 1/6 scale Joker figure!

Be still my heart! That price tag, though. I don't know if I can do it after all the Hot Toys Avengers this year.

New Walking Dead figures from McFarlane are on the horizon!

McFarlane was king of the world in the 90s. Now they mostly just churn out subpar stuff.
