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

The Black Series cardback is pretty classy looking. I'll still tear it open and throw it away, but I'll feel more guilty doing so.

Also, I'm 25 and have shelf after shelf full of superheroes. It is perfectly normal, and you are among friends in this thread

It's simple. Elegant. To the point. Evocative of the carbon freezing chamber with all that black and orange. I'm very pleased that they didn't try to "kid it up" with any unnecessary, loud and even tacky pictures and colors.

A few over the years, yeah, but my main focus has always been the 3-3/4" action figures and related ships and vehicles. I also have a lot of larger 12" figures.

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

I have about the same number. I haven't counted in a while but I have the classic Kenner Stormtroopers from the '70s and '80s, the Power of the Force 2 versions from the nineties and at least one or two of every other one that's been released since then. I also have lots of Snowtroopers, Biker Scouts and prequel Clone Troopers.

I also have about 70 (or more) Endor Rebel soldiers in the camouflage commando gear and more Battle Droids than any normal collector should even consider.

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

I've grabbed the ocassional Lego set, but I usualy find them to be prohibitively expensive. My main focus is on superheroes with lines like DC Universe Classics and Marvel Legends. I also grab Star Wars figures on ocassion, though not nearly as many as I used to.

I bet if you sold them now they would be worth a lot. Yes, I also have a lot of those Endor troops I bought a few of the Endor battle packs. I have loads of those tree's I do not know where to put them

They are expensive but I suppose that is what you have got to pay for quality. Get the sets at the start of the year they have sales. The superhero range is expanding so you may be interested

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

Hey, if you're into LEGO the brand new 2013 sets in the green Yoda packaging are starting to hit stores. One of the new ones for this year is a really neat Jabba's Palace set that comes with a Rancor figure. I think there's also a new Hoth one with a Rebel Snowspeeder.

Yes the rancor pit is good you can attach it onto the Jabba's palace. A few days ago I received the 75014 2013 battle of Hoth set very good set but not 100% worth its money.

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

And Toy Fair is off and running!

Hasbro presentations began around 12:30 and the My Little Pony, Transformers and Kre-O sections are over with. G.I. Joe and Star Wars are supposed to be next.

For anybody interested just go to Facebook (if you have an account) and look at the Jedi Temple Archives collecting page. The JTA gang is reporting live from the Jacob Javits Center in New York and attending the presentations.
