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

My only beef is this: too many action figures--not enough ships.

I have no ships to post, or I would happily post away. Have you got some ships? Post your ships and remedy the ship-anemia of this thread.

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

Finally scored some Ewoks I didn't already own: Romba and Graak from the 2007 Anniversary line. These two furballs were nowhere to be seen a few years ago and most online prices for them are a little high, but my friend's toy shop had them on a near-mint cardback and let me have them for just $10!

The only ship I have is the Playmates Runabout from Deep Space Nine. I'll have to dig it up and take a photo.

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

I remember that Deep Space Nine. A real shame about '90s Trek toys, isn't it? Much better than the sales would indicate, but then Star Trek hasn't been at the top of the toy heap since the Mego action figure line of the '70s.

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

My LCS got in a huge shipment of Star Trek ships a couple weeks ago. There's Bs, Ds, Es, AGT Ds, and Birds of Prey all over the shop. I just haven't had the funds or space to pull the trigger on any of them.

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

I don't care what some of the more demanding and nitpicky collectors say, the 2009 Legacy Collection Stormtrooper is a very good figure. It's not as good as the more recent versions and there are minor issues with the legs and helmet, but it looks pretty fantastic and is a good army builder.

That guy has turned up in his SAGA Legends packaging at some discount shops near me. I'll probably pick up a couple if they still have any in a week or so.

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

Yeah, my local TJ Maxx got in a handful of the 2010-11 Saga Legends Stormtroopers and sold them for $4.99 each. You're right, I believe that figure is a straight repack of the 2009 Legacy version. It's a good trooper. In some ways the Anniversary Collection version with the silver coin from 2007 is better (it's also one of the last Stormtroopers that doesn't have a removable helmet so that's one less thing to lose) but I'm a fan of most Kenner and Hasbro Stormies over the years. It's pretty hard to go wrong with one of those guys and they always sell well.

No camera sadly--I meant what was available on shelves from the market.

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

Hot Wheels made an Enterprise-D? Wow, I'm more out of touch with some toy lines than I thought.

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

That's neat. Is there anything about HALO toys that isn't pleasantly surprising or cool? Or both?

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

You want ships? I have ships! I am crazy about them so I grab what I can when I can.

The first four were made by Bandai about ten years ago. They are snap-together model kits that came prepainted and lit. The detail on them is staggering considering the size. They were also expensive but worth every penny. Unfortunately they do not make them anymore. The rest are toys or collectables.

Enterprise Refit by Bandai


Enterprise E by Bandai


Enterprise NX-01 by Bandai


Voyager by Bandai


TOS Enterprise by Diamond Select


Enterprise D by Diamond Select


Alternate Timeline Enterprise by Playmates


Serenity by Quantum Mechanics


Millennium Falcon by Hasbro


I also have Diamond Select’s Enterprise B and Bird of Prey as well as an X-Wing. When I find some time I will take some pictures of them to post. I also recently bought a model of the Battlestar Galactica. I need to snap some pictures of it when it finally gets here. I have also been searching for an Imperial Shuttle for a reasonable price. I am always looking for something to add to the collection.

I also have the Tardis and the Doc Brown's Delorean. Do those count as ships?
