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

It depends on which armor design. If the design is one that has articulated joints, like the movie armors and most of the modern armors, then yes. The classic armors had smooth joints, though, and as such the articulation will be visible.

Also, I just batgasmed:



GIMME! GIMME! GIMME!

Classic Adam West series figures?

WANT!

I'm guessing the Penguin's cigarette holder plugs into a little hole in his teeth and can be removed.

The Romero Joker had better have the mustache.

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

Exciting as these are, I do have to temper it with a bit of bad news. Word is that these are the only ones that Mattel has license to make:

Batman (Adam West)
Robin (Burt Ward)
Penguin (Burgess Meredith)
Riddler (Frank Gorshin)
Joker (Caesar Romero)
Catwoman (Julie Newmar)

This means probably no Yvonne Craig Batgirl or Eartha Kitt or Lee Merriwether Catwoman. Also no other villains like King Tutt or Egghead. Still, I am more than thrilled the get the Dynamic Duo and the core four villains, especially if all of the figures come out looking as nice as those.

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

Yeah, I'd have loved to have seen a big, Porkins-sized King Tut figure complete with royal feathered fans and a throne. Victor Buono was an awesome Batman villain and he'd make for a perfect and fun action figure given his size and facial expressions.

I'm a bit mystified they didn't greenlight a Batgirl. She was probably the most popular character on the show during its final season on the air.

Signs point to Craig being a holdout on her likeness.

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

Oh man! There's more!



A BATMOBILE! They're making an in scale Batmobile! And the Batman has a cloth cape so that he can sit in it! Well, that is a slight downside. They need to fix that cape a bit before release. Make it drape over him a bit better., but otherwise the figures look great.

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

Those are absolutely amazing looking. I'll be getting the Batman and Batmobile for sure...the 60's series was really my introduction to the character so I have a soft spot for it

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

It was one of my two introductions to Batman, the other being the DC comics of the late seventies.

It's after midnight and thus the first day of Toy Fair. Unless the current snowpocalypse in the Big Apple postpones or even cancels the event we should be getting our first pics from the floor within a matter of hours. The Hasbro presentation is supposed to commence at about 12:30pm East Coast time.

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

Ahhh that time of year has started. Con season!!! Despite this lack of Hasbro Star Trek plans (apparently) I'm still excited to see what else is store this weekend. I'm sure we'll be in for a few surprises or two yet.

Mattel revealed it's 2013 MOTUC line yesterday I think...we're getting a Shokoti figure which I'm extremely excited about!!! Also some Castle Grayskull set pics I think were revealed. This one was one of the things I most wanted as a child but never got. It's way too expensive now but I'm glad they're finally releasing it.

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

The very first pics of new Star Wars figures and packaging have leaked out onto a couple of collecting sites and Facebook.

The "Mission Series" two-packs

The 3.75" Black Series cardback design and some of the new figures from the cancelled Droid Factory line that will be packaged on it

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

I'm 38 and I have more than two thousand action figures from both the classic Kenner era (1978-85) and the modern lines.

I don't think you have anything to be self-conscious about.
