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

The two other sets in the as-yet-unreleased Wave 2 of the Mission Series:




Wave 2 will comprise these as well as the aforementioned Artoo/Threepio set, with two from A New Hope for Classic Trilogy fans and one based on the Darth Maul arc in Season 5 of The Clone Wars.

The latest addition to my collection. Klara the camel. A gift from someone who found it at some booth thing. It's awesomely old and used looking.

Ordered the Hot Wheels' Vengeance and Excelsior from Amazon this morning. They should be here Tuesday with my copy of Into Darkness. Got them for $13.99 (US) a piece, which is a steal compared to what they were going for earlier this year.

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

I still haven't seen the Hot Wheels Enterprise from the new film, and I've been keeping my eyes peeled in the die-cast car aisles. Nothing. It's been almost four months since the movie premiered and there hasn't been a sign of the die-cast Trek ships on the retail pegs I've seen, so I'm probably just going to wind up getting them online.

To add to the Black Series bubble falling off the card back controversy, the same thing is happening with the Mission Series, at least for me. Mine came completely detached from the card. The bubble was being held in only by the curved in corners of the card.

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

I do know that with the Mission Series packaging the only seal is at the very top of the bubble above the figures' heads. There's no heat-sealing or glue of any kind on the sides or bottom of the bubble, hence the big cardboard pieces at the sides and on the bottom (they're there to - ideally, anyways - keep the product from falling out). The way Hasbro designed them lets you simply stick a fingernail underneath the edge of the top of the bubble and peel across, then slide the entire thing out of the cardback so you can quickly remove and then enjoy the figures.



Of course, this means that if the seal at the top fails to hold then the figures can fall right out of the packaging just like their brothers and cousins in the Saga Legends and Black Series assortments.

Romero Joker time!


Hot damn! They are knocking it out of the park with this line. I'm really sad that Catwoman is the only one left.

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

It'll be the Julie Newmar Catwoman, right? Not Eartha Kitt or Lee Merriwether? Because it would be pretty cool if they produced three different variants of the '60s TV Catwoman to satisfy all tastes and desires in the classic Batman fanbase. Eartha Kitt was my personal favorite.

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

Yeah, it'll be the Newmar version. From what I understand, retailers just aren't showing a whole lot of interest in this line without a DVD release of the show to promote it with. It's a shame. I would have loved to get the other two versions of Catwoman, along with Batgirl and some more villains like Egghead or King Tut. It's also silly for them to be making the Surfs Up Batman without a Joker to go with him. Oooh, or this is a total pipe dream, but a two-pack of Commissioner Gordon and Chief O'Hara with a desk and red phone. Then do one of Bruce and Dick with a desk with the Shakespeare bust.

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

I was a hardcore fan of the Adam West show as a kid. If it were left up to me to pick and choose future figures in this line I'd go with Tut, Egghead, the Bookworm (Roddy McDowall), Louie the Lilac (Milton Berle) and the Otto Preminger version of Mr. Freeze.

I adored some of the lesser-seen and lesser-known villains, like Cliff Robertson's villainous criminal cowboy Shame and the Mad Hatter. The 1966-68 show was - at times - almost as big a part of my youth as TOS and the early years of TNG were.

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



That's....moderately disturbing.



In other news, the second wave of the 3.75" Black Series (Mara Jade, Pablo-Jill, Stormtrooper, etc.) has just been found at retail over in Hong Kong. American retail sightings probably aren't far off if this is the case, so if anyone has been interested in the brand new Mara Jade action figure from Hasbro then she'll probably be surfacing in stores in the near future.

Provided she doesn't sell out in the first five minutes. You know how Expanded Universe characters often are. At brick-and-mortar for a split second, then they spend the rest of their existence on an eBay seller's page for five times the original price.
