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

Sounds like something Hasbro would do to keep costs down. Use a Star Wars action figure projectile from 10 years earlier as an Avengers weapon. I own plenty of those Destroyer Droids from the 2002-2006 period and pretty much every one of them during that time frame came with one version or another of that red projectile.

That's at least some hope regarding finding the Hot Wheels in Target!

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

I'm still wondering what the mystery ship is in the wave...I'm kind of hoping it is


I've seen pictures of the Kelvin and it looks pretty awesome.

My haul for the day:



Found them at Wegman's grocery store, of all places! Two dollars, and I bought two of each. They were out of Hulk, though, and they didn't make Black Widow, which sucks. These will be made into necklaces.

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

Sweet haul! I'm happy for ya.

Are these the cheaper, much less articulated figures that come in smaller packages? I've seen figures similar to these in dollar and discount stores.

Yeah, they're in a fixed pose. No moving parts. But that's perfect for making jewelry.

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

YES!

This looks like it might be a whole lot of fun. A shame you have to take a road or air trip there and then pay so much to get these, but it's still very cool that it's being offered.

The Trek idea is great, too!
