Wow. That's the most life-like one yet.

Hawkeye is going for $700+ on ebay. FML.

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

^Yeesh! That's insane. Hot Toys tend to appreciate a bit, but not usually that much! I'm glad that I got mine when I did. I'm sad that I missed out on Fury, though.

I got the DC Unlimited New 52 Aquaman. He's not bad, but he is kinda pinheaded:


The biggest problem with him though, is that you can't improve on perfection. We already got the absolutely perfect Aquaman way back in the second wave of DCUC:

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

Remember I mentioned I couldn't wait for the Arkham Origins figures? Well we have the first two figures in the first wave already...Batman and Black Mask which both look outstanding. The Batman figure features him in his Origins "Year Two" costume. They'll become available in October.

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

Not a single online retailer has taken any pre-orders for the Black Series 3.75", Black Series 6" or Saga Legends lines yet, and we're supposedly just a few months from all three debuting at American retail. Not an encouraging sign. I hope Hasbro doesn't end up having colossal marketing problems with these figures, too.

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

The consensus still seems to be: yes, they're still coming to stores in the next few months. Pre-orders from online dealers or not, we're supposedly still on-track to see these bad boys hanging from retail pegs by the end of this coming summer.

Here's another look at the eight figures in the first wave of 3.75" Black Series along with the current case breakdown of that debut wave.



1x #01 Padmé Amidala (Geonosis Arena, Episode II)
1x #02 Clone Trooper Sergeant (Episode II)
2x #03 Anakin Skywalker (Jedi Hero, Episode II)
2x #04 Biggs Darklighter (Rebel Pilot, Episode IV)
1x #05 Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony, Episode IV)
2x #06 Darth Vader (Bespin Trap, Episode V)
2x #07 Biker Scout (Speeder Bike Pilot, Episode VI)
1x #08 Clone Pilot (Episode II)

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

Well I'm right about the mysterious ship regarding the Hot Wheels Into Darkness wave...it is indeed the USS Vengeance. Also our first look at the new Klingon Bird of Prey. So the line consists of the following ships: USS Kelvin, USS Excelsior, USS Vengeance, and a Klingon Bird of Prey.

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

I clicked your link on Facebook. I almost nerdgasmed.

Hot Wheels Excelsior and Kelvin? We're not worthy of this miniature die-cast goodness.

Stores: get these on the pegs.

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

Indeed. This line looks very impressive. I really hope our stores get them in this time, trying to get them online is going to be difficult again I think.

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

I still haven't found the new Enterprise, and I've been looking. The local Hot Wheels pegs seem to have at least one of everything but Star Trek ships. With the film premiering this week maybe there'll be more of a concerted effort to get the new Trek Hot Wheels product into stores to coincide with the movie's predicted blockbuster performance.

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

The cardback reverse for the 2013 Jumbo Vintage Walrus Man figure from Gentle Giant.

I believe these are the exact same product photos with colorful backdrops that were on the original Kenner 3.75" action figure cardbacks during the era of the first movie and up until Empire hit theaters in 1980. I loved these cardbacks as a little kid and they evoke so many strong memories of my childhood and some of the toys I had.

Gorgeous. Simply gorgeous.

"Oh, no, not again." More "babies" for Hawkeye.



"HAWKEYE MAD! HAWKEYE SMASH!" Clint does not take the rumors about Jeremy Renner being replaced as Hawkeye well.

Just picked up an MOC 30th Anniversary Collection Darth Malak. I actually had this guy but sold him loose for £20 ages ago. This one cost me £16 quid, so I've made a £4 profit somewhere : )

Nice!

Believe it or not, that's still cheaper cheaper than most carded Darth Malaks I've seen over time over here on this side of the pond. Way to go. He usually doesn't go for any cheaper than $35-$40 when I've spotted him.

Poor Hawkeye.
