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

I checked the local Target the other day, no Black Series yet, of either scale.

Celebration Europe II / Hasbro image of the upcoming 6" Stormtrooper in the Black Series. This will most likely be in Wave 3 or Wave 4 of the larger-scale line.

Wow, that looks amazing. If I were only allowed to get one in the 6 inch line, it would be the Stormtrooper.

Awesome! Hmmm, and yeah, $20 is about I was expecting.

The 6" Black Series Stormtrooper is going to be popular to say the least. One per case, and no carry forwards currently planned with any of these characters? The secondary market and eBay are gonna have a field day with that one.
Really? I was so looking forward to picking one up from the store, but now... I've got a bad feeling about this.

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

Hey, you never know. Just one per case or not your local stores might stock several cases at once and you'll find at least one of him. Timing is usually 99% of scoring characters like this but with any luck there'll be at least a few in your area and you'll have a shot at one of 'em.

The Slave Leia in Wave 2 will likely go just as fast. Carrie Fisher in a skimpy metal and fabric bikini doesn't seem to last long on store pegs no matter what size the figure.

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

Got the first of Mattel's new 60s Batman figures, a Batman and Robin 2 pack.

First things first. Right out of the box they have a terrible problem. Can you spot it?


What the hell, Mattel? That is just ridiculous. Well, one pair of scissor later:


They also have a climbing wall accessory:


It can be wall mounted, but I really wish there had been a base to set it upright on a shelf.

Overall I'm happy with them. The articulation is great, and they capture the look of the classic show very well. Mine are thankfully free from most of the atrocious paint problems I've heard plaguing others. You may want to wait until you find them in stores. It seems I got lucky.

Tom Servo leaning out the Batman window to talk to the Dynamic Duo.

Glorious.

I got two more Ezios (in assassin white) as well as Edward and Haytham with Connor on the way. They are all so awesome, looking just like the game characters.

Are these NECA's Assassin's Creed stuff? I'd love to see pics.

All of my Ezios are from NECA but McFarlane has the license for AC 3 and 4 figures as far as I know.

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

Who here has found the brand new 3.75" Black Series figures? I've seen a handful of online store reports of the first wave of eight characters showing up in random states across the map, but I have yet to spot the new 3.75" assortment myself. Anybody spotted Wave 1 and/or have any pics of a score?

Yeah, I saw them at TRU the same day that I grabbed my 6" figures, but didn't pick any up. If they've reached Iowa, then they are definitely out there across the country.

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

So, I got some interesting goodies for my birthday yesterday....

"Tasha? Is there something you forgot to tell me?"


"What is this, a starship for ANTS?" Captain Kirk is disappointed.


Also, I added Emily (Molly's English friend) to my American Girls collection.

I LOVE these Tom Servo "cameos"!!!

You know, that's a visual we rarely see anymore. Not the celebrity cameos, I assume that was just the Adam West series. No, I mean the "climbing" up the side of buildings. I'm not sure what's normally depicted within the comics (I've only purchased Fred Perry's Gold Digger with any regularity), but since the motorized grappling "gun" was introduced in the Tim Burton movie, Batman simply presses a switch (after he's anchored the line) and "zips" upward. True, it's a practical idea, and a technology that can more or less be replicated in real life as MythBusters demonstrated. But I can't recall in the movies when Batman had his boots planted against a wall as he gripped a rope.

Sincerely,

Bill

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

I got a Mal action figure and a Jayne action figure yesterday at Shore Leave. They came autographed, which is probably why they cost so dang much. Still, they're awesome!

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

Keep your eyes peeled, guys. The new Black Series figures - both sizes and scales - are reaching every corner and region of the country. The TRU in Times Square in New York is jammed full of the eight new 3.75” characters and reports are trickling in from more and more states.

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

Well, It's been a long time coming , and, no lie, the upcoming ARROW Figure was definitely a catalyst towards my working to get this one but now Justin Hartley's Green Arrow has joined the ranks of my Collection....I feel compelled to mention I got him for less than a Hundred Dollars (about 75.00 in point of fact!)
