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

For me, it was walking into the local K-Mart or Woolworth's. Though the only action figures I got as a kid was the Mego 8" Spock and two of the early 70s "civilian adventure" GI Joe's, the scuba diver set with the shark and the "brass" helmeted deep sea diver with the octopus.

Sincerely,

Bill

Hills. Kmart. Woolworth's. Rose's. It was a glorious era we'll never see again, before the Walmarts of the world planted their flag in everything that their eyes saw.

Picked up the TNG versions of Spock, McCoy and Scott today at the local comic shop.

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

Considering the cruder figure sculpting technology of the nineties I'd say Playmates did a pretty good job with all three of those characters, Scotty in particular.

He looks almost exactly like Scotty did in "Relics(TNG)." All three of those guys still hold up pretty well.

I figured for five bucks a pop, I couldn't go wrong.

picked up another Marvel Legends Iron Man figure today. i always liked the early 90s armor.

I'm very glad that the Iron Man Legends have been getting good distribution. I would have gone crazy if I couldn't find them. Marvel Legends Wave 3 skipped my area completely. I only ever got that Iron Man because I went online for it. Have you been able to grab the Bleeding Edge armor? I think that's possible one of my favorite Iron man figures ever made by either Hasbro or Toybiz.

^ A have a number of the Playmates figures but I never grabbed any of those. And five bucks is a steal these days. The last time I checked McCoy was going for more than twenty.

Has anyone else picked up the DS Bird of Prey? What do you think? I have had her for almost a week and I can't stop taking her down from the shelf to look at her. The sculpt and paint is awesome. DS really did an outstanding job with this one.

A friend owns a local toy shop with a buttload of cheap, slightly older action figures from lines I collect or enjoy. I know the feeling.

Woohoo! Hot Toys Black Widow is on her way!

I promise I won't do any giant sized Clint and Natasha adventures. I don't want to step on KM's turf.

Geez, Thor was a couple weeks ago, now Widow, and Loki is due in a couple weeks. My poor wallet.

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

I can't wait for the pics of this one. Black Widow in any scale is fun and worth a look, but anything of this size and level of accuracy better come with an uploaded 10-minute review!

I finally received Thor today and Hawkeye is making its way to me now. So I will have 4 of the 6 Avengers. I can do without BW and Hulk. I would only consider getting BW if I was also able to get Nick Fury first. With Fury, BW, Hawkeye and eventually Coulson, you could have an awesome S.H.I.E.L.D. team.

I also picked up a DX Dark Knight Rises Batman...yay for wait lists.
