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

No, I didn't go that far south. I hit the TRUs from Lynnwood to Tacoma, skipping Bellevue. I'm glad you found the Fighter Pods! Here was what I found in which store:

Lynnwood: KREOS (Enterprise, Space Dive, Transporter, Shuttlecraft)
Tukwila: Fighter Pods (blind bags, All Attack Pods, Enterprise)
Kent: Nothing!
Tacoma: KREOS (Klingon Bird of Prey, Shuttlecraft, blind bags)
Puyallup: Nothing!

What seemed really odd to me was that aside from the KREO shuttlecraft none of the stores had the same items. Not even empty shelf space/pegs with stickers for the items not currently stocked.

That Enterprise is sweet but I'm afraid I'm going to lose those little blue wings on the attack pod. Had some fun enacting when Spock got mad and shot Kirk onto the ice planet though. What are your thoughts about them?


ETA: When I fill the bridge with those little guys it looks like a Mexican standoff.

I think tomorrow they're going to help me bake. I even have little doll sized baking pans.

Stay tuned for Cinco de Mayo shenanigans! Also, the Kentucky Derby is on Saturday...I'll try to come up with something for that.

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

Apparently some TRU's and Wall-Marts are starting to get the Wave One "Man of Steel" Movie Masters, down in the States. Hopefully TRU Canada will get the stock in...but we only managed to get the Batman "The Dark Knight Rises" Movie Masters, in the two stores that I frequent. Never got anything else. So I might end up getting Superman and Jor-El online.

More Endor AT-AT sightings at Toys 'R' Us stores across the country. If you haven't yet seen the new vehicle pop up on a store shelf in your area then keep your eyes open. With the right combo of online and/or printed coupons and Rewards card points you might be able to snag this bad boy for way less than $100.

One guy found his for a little more than sixty bucks after all his coupons were factored in.

I love those Trek figures from different toy companies. If you have more of other characters then please, by all means, post them!

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

Yes! I found the second wave of Batman Unlimited today

First up is Batman from Frank Miller's seminal The Dark Knight Returns:


This is the first DC figure to use the bulkier Masters of the Universe Classics body. It's perfect for the look of Batman from this story, though.

Next we have Planet-X Batman:


Funny how the name and bio on the package talk of this as the goofy Planet-X version from the silver age, yet this figure is very clearly meant to be the Batman of Zur En Arrh from Grant Morrison's Batman R.I.P. I guess the thought of Batman hiding an alternate personality inside his head that turns him into a savage maniac with Bat-mite as his hallucinated spirit-guide is a bit much for kids. Oh, and Bat-mite! This is one of the most awesome accessories possible.

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

Yeah I saw a funny picture with the Batman head off and the He-Man head on and thought...this is like a dream come true! LOL. I want to get that Batman. He looks more impressive than the other one released.
