I don't know. Thor's left arm looks a little short...

....for a Stormtrooper?

Okay, you have to admit you did walk right into that one, and this is one of the geekiest threads in existence.

That's a trick of perspective. His right arm is bent slightly towards the foreground, while the left arm is slightly back.

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

Marvel Select is doing "The Wolverine" line, so we are indeed getting figures for the film. I'm not familiar with Marvel Select's reputation at all so I don't know how excited people will be for these. I'll post the link a little later...if I can find it again.

Here they are...

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

It seems the Toys 'R' Us-exclusive Endor AT-AT Walker in Vintage Collection packaging is still lost in domestic limbo after places like Canada have already gotten it, with original plans that it would surface at U.S. retail by now obviously fizzling and no concrete announcement that it's about to be released.

In the meantime, almost nothing new shows up in stores and what little 2013 product there is is pretty unpopular with most collectors.

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

I believe I saw that on display when I was last in TRU...which would have been about a week and a half ago now. Looked pretty cool too. They had a bunch of them in stock too from my quick glance at it.

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

Some American TRU stores still have a few of the 2010 blue-boxed (”Shadows of the Dark Side”) Hoth Walkers that came with a repack of the Legacy Collection AT-AT Driver figure as well as a Speeder Bike you could plug into the belly of the vehicle, and that version is pretty gorgeous. With rising labor costs and retail prices the new Endor Walker in Vintage packaging doesn't come with bonus extras but the packaging looks much cooler.

Scratch that. The Endor AT-AT does come with the Speeder Bike and Driver figure, only this time the figure has been repainted with black gloves to create a unique variation to differ from all the Hoth/ESB versions made over the years.

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

Finally! Finally! After so long a search! I stopped by my TRU on the way to the comic shop, and lying there on the shelf, off to the left of the Star Wars pegs was a lone Nom Anor! Plus, Star Wars figures were on sale,, so he only cost me $4.99! That just makes it so much sweeter.

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

Awesome news, man!

What do you think of him thus far? Does the figure live up to all your expectations?

I haven't gotten him home to open up yet, but just from the figure in the package he looks awesome.

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

Just a helpful piece of advice. Be careful with his feet. The way the ball joints at the ankles are engineered many Nom Anor figures have been known to see the feet pop out if too much force is applied to bending and posing them.
