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

Kmart used be one of the real go-to places for some lines. Between, say, 1998 and 2007 it was one of my primary locations to get SW figures and the selection was typically large, wide and contained relatively new or even just-released characters. As the last decade drew to a close and certain brand footprints in toy aisles shrank there was less to pick from (the 2008-10 Legacy Collection years in particular could be very lean sometimes with little more than the predictable pegwarmers like Yarna d'al Gargan, Malakili the Rancor Keeper or Willrow Hood the Ice Cream Maker Guy), but you can still find some great product if you have the timing.

Darn. Hot Toys Loki is delayed until April. Thor and Black Widow are both out in Hong Kong, now though. It shouldn't be that much longer until Sideshow gets its allocation. If Loki is delayed, then Hulk and Iron Man will be soon enough. It's going to be over a year since the movie was released before we get all of the Hot Toys figures.

Clint and Tasha watched the Oscars with me. They're upset that The Avengers didn't win its only Oscar nomination!

I can tell Clint's upset....he's giving the TV screen an undignified buffalo shot.

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

Found the new Unlimited Batman and Batgirl today. All I need is Hawkman, now and I have the first wave complete. Sorry about the poor picture quality. These are some really shiny and reflective figures, and my camera is a simple point and shoot:

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

Yeah, my camera isn't good for shooting shiny figures, either. Those look good.

Part 2 of the Hawkeye's Eggs saga:

Oh, no! It's an egg-napping!

You're gonna need your own popular spinoff thread if this keeps up.

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

Nothing I do will top OdoWan's 12 Days of Christmas.

I thought about setting up a separate Tumblr for all of my Clintasha posts...

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

News for Canadian collectors:

The 2013 green Yoda packaged wave of Clone Wars figures is hitting north of the border as reported by the good folks over at Galactichunter.

This wave contains nine figures that will not see release at U.S. retail (unless discount/markdown chains like Ross, TJ Maxx or Marshalls get shipments at a later date):

- Captain Rex
- 501st Legion Clone Trooper (blue and red markings, jetpack)
- Cyborg Darth Maul
- Savage Opress
- R2-D2
- Battle Droid (tan)
- Commander Cody
- Obi-Wan Kenobi
- Anakin Skywalker

Prices being reported seem to fall into the $10.99 CDN range.

One does not simply be happy with a single Batman.

Nor a single action figure of any kind.

Yeah, I mean I have like...20 Batman figures alone. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 Iron Man figures.

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

The last time I counted I had almost 80 Endor Rebel Soldiers in camo gear of various types dating back to the 1998 POTF2 figure. Clones....Stormtroopers....Battle Droids....I've never met a markdown or liquidation sale I didn't like.
