That disruptor looks great. I'm glad devices and weapons from the Prime timeline are still being made for collectors.

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

I think they have other things planned for later in the year, like phasers, tricorders, etc. This is the first thing out of the line IIRC. It does look pretty awesome.

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

I'd love to see a new TOS tricorder with authentic sounds and even a light-up display screen. We're way past due for a new one.

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

I was curious so I did a count. I actually have:
24 versions of Batman (counting Bruce Waynes)
53 versions of Iron Man (counting Tony Starks)
37 Green Lanterns (5 of which are Hal Jordan)

That's quite a few.

I kneel before you, Zod. That's damn impressive. You are truly one of the action figure masters and belong in this thread.

And the sad thing is, that's not even a fraction of my collection. Oh dear, I think I have a problem.

Whoops. Make that 25 Batmans. I just realized that I missed one.

EDIT: And 54 Iron Mans. I forgot the one in my Avengers display.

Wait...DST already put out 3 different versions of the TOS tricorder with light up displays and authentic sounds. In fact they just re-released all of them.

Are you perhaps thinking of TNG?

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

You're correct. I am thinking of the Next Gen-era tricorders and not TOS. For some reason I thought they hadn't made a classic black tricorder in a while.

It's hard to keep track of a lot of these as the years pass. (*Blushes*)

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

I didn't bother with the "geological" tricorder, but I purchased both the science and medical models as soon as they were released. Like many buyers, I was a bit disappointed to discover AA had to cut corners with the medical handheld scanner, dropping the motorized spinning feature. It was ironic the scanner PlayMates released had a louder audio circuit. But other than that and the Munchkin pitch of the recorded voices (while the comm' voices sounded right), those props were, no, still are dand cool!

Sincerely,

Bill
