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

Toys R Us got a pretty awesome exclusive Dark Knight Trilogy 3-Pack:


Three Batman figures from three Batman movies. The Begins one is a straight up rerelease of the first Movie Masters version. The TDK version is mostly the same as the normal version, but has a cloth cape and a new scowling head. The TDKR version is the same body but has a new Bruce Wayne sculpt and a separate cowl accessory (it doesn't fit over his head, though.) I really love the display stands with the poster backers, too. This whole thing is class.

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

My friend posted pics of that set on his Facebook page after he scored them. He was taken completely by surprise and he didn't know TRU had any Batman/Dark Knight exclusives planned. I'm not in the market for these but the next time I'm at my TRU I'm going to take a good look at them.

Just based on photos like this I'd say the Batman Begins version is my favorite.

The Begins figure is good, but he's a little chicken legged.

It's also worth noting that these are the first Batman figures from Mattel to actually have Christian Bale's hazel eye color.

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

I would love Talia, too. The only way we're getting one is if she's an SDCC exclusive, or something. Mattel hates women. I'm pretty sure the only reason we even got Catwoman is because she's an iconic character known to all. There is absolutely ZERO hope for a Talia at retail.

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

Yeah that's pretty much been their policy, which sucks. I'm really impressed with the "Batman Begins" figure and "The Dark Knight Rises" Bruce Wayne figure with the gray hair All that needs is the magic brace and rope accessories

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

I'm a little surprised that all three don't have plastic or fabric capes, but if these are special, exclusive repacks of older molds that first came out when the movies were new I can understand the differences.

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

Yeah. They look like exclusive re-releases since some have new sculpts (The Dark Knight Rises one) and a cloth cape for the TDK one. My chance to finally rectify a wrong on my part!!

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

The Begins version is the only one that's a straight up re-release (besides paint.) The original TDK version had a plastic cape and a different head. The same figure was also re-released in the TDKR Movie Masters line, much to the chagrin of collectors that already had it. The TDKR version in this set uses the same body as the TDK version, but obviously with the unmasked head, and different paint.

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

Ah, okay. I was wondering how the three figures broke down in origin. These days toy exclusives for retailers tend to contain a lot of straight repacks and repaints with a few tweaks, just enough to make them different enough to buy.

Hot Toys Thor is in the house!

The good: The sculpt and outfit are spot on. Mjolnir is real metal
The bad: The outfit really restricts the articulation. His shoulders have no forward movement at all.

Still , I'm mostly happy with him. It's certainly the best looking Thor figure anyone has ever made.

Gorgeous!

And if you ever for some reason get tired of Thor you can turn him into George Kirk.

Wow. He looks good.

Part 4 of The Guests in Hawkeye's Nest:

Mama Bird arrives, and The Avengers learn that Loki stole the eggs and put them in Clint's nest. Mama wasn't happy, but glad they took care of the babies.




Loki gets squished by mad Mama. Hulk finds it hilarious. "Big Bird squish puny god!"



Clint is sad to have an empty nest again, but the babies aren't going too far. Mama and babies will stay in his birdhouse for a while...and Loki is ordered to clean up their messes as punishment.





Stay tuned for St. Patrick's Day.
