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

Hasbro's Marvel presentation has made me die and go to heaven:

Wolverine's movie line will be 6" and comic based with: Astonishing X-Men Wolverine, Phoenix Force Cyclops, Astonishing X-Men Emma Frost, Sabretooth, Modern Rogue, and Puck as the Mini-BAF.

The second wave of the Iron Man Legends will be Movie Iron Patriot, Movie Mark XLII, and (!)Classic Ultron!

Then we've got the second 2013 wave of Marvel Legends with: Scarlet Spider, Black Panther, Wrecker, Bulldozer, Hawkeye with modern and classic variants, Jean Grey with variants, and Rocket Racoon as the BAF.

Oh man. Too much awesome.

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

There'll be a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive 6” Black Series figure: a Darth Maul that will be different from the mass retail Maul in the line.

Also, the Droid in the Vader ”Mission Series” two-pack is a Seeker Droid, not an interrogation/torture model.

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

Hasbro is kicking ass with the Transformers releases this year:

http://gizmodo.com/5983072/the-bigge...-from-toy-fair

Giant, two-foot-tall electronic triple-changing Metroplex. There seems to be some focus on bringing back triple-changers, which I love. Springer looks A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

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

Gizmodo also has a few pictures of the 6" Star Wars figures. I have to say I am already very impressed. The R2D2 is a definate must-have but I really like the Sandtrooper. On the other hand, I am disappointed in the vehicles they have coming this year. I might consider getting the Slave 1 but I am not interested in the rest. Oh well.

And speaking of vehicles, the Mattel Batmobile is going in the collection. I am probably going to snag the figures also. God, those things are AWESOME.

I am curious to see more of the 6" Wolverine line. Most of the pictures I have seen so far are blurry or distant. I have always disliked 3.75" figures so I am thrilled they decided to do something bigger. If they look just as good up close I may have to splurge on those too.

Does anyone know who's coming up next at the Toy Fair? I can't seem to find a presentation schedule.

Yeah. When images of the first few Beast Hunter retooled figures leaked, they looked horrible and I thought this year would kill my interest. But they've really stepped up their game with the original Beast molds and Generations/FoC stuff. I can't wait.

That 6” R2-D2 is definitely a must-have! He's my favorite of the new 6” figures thus far.

I know it is silly because it is probably not something new but I just got a kick out of the fact they included the Luke's hidden lightsaber from RotJ. And from the look of the panels on his front section, it appears several are designed to open.

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

This might end up being the definitive Artoo for a lot of collectors, outshining all the 3.75” figures in recent years!

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

The Saga Legends figure line is returning at a $5.99 pricepoint and with all-new sculpts, each with only five points of articulation....but hey, they're kinda cheap!
