^ I love the swamp thing carrying the poor girl. Certainly an iconic pose there

Swamp Thing? You mean Creature From the Black Lagoon.

Here's a much better, hi-res photo of the brand new 12" Clone Trooper, this one in bilingual Canadian packaging. The U.S. packaging is largely the same.

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

This is only a Photoshopped mockup of what the 6" Black Series Artoo will look like, but will probably be very close to the final product due in stores this coming fall.

If the real thing looks even half this good I might just get two of him.



Think of the possibilities for larger and more screen-accurate droid tools you can attach to this guy!

Seeing that made me look at the R2-A6 on my desk that was made for the 12-inch line from Episode I.

He really didn't come with anything more than a deployable third wheel, but that 15-inch voice-activated R2-D2 I have is able to serve me drinks (albeit reluctantly at times).

I really hope we do some attachable or pop-out tools for R2. He's gonna be smaller than the rest, so they really should justify the price.

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

I think they probably will. Even 3.75" Artoos in recent years have had pop-open panels and assorted tools even though they were very small and screen accuracy could be hard to achieve. The Vintage Collection (VC25) Artoo with the Sail Barge glasses and gear was exceptional for its scale and really brought a lot to the table....I hope a larger 6" droid will come with even more options for the $19.99 plus tax we'd be spending to get him.

There's nothing about that post I don't like.

Of course, it will probably be close to $300 like their Doctor Who figures.

Your toy adventures are more fun than most movies I've seen lately.

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

So Hasbro's tradition of a collector line and a kids line will continue. Only this time, it sounds like the kids line will be total garbage, and completely without the odd gem for collectors.
