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

I noticed that The Mary Sue lamented the fact that I made Black Widow into Leia. Who the hell else was I supposed to make her?

Also, the number of people I see not getting the joke of Hawkeye being a Stormtrooper is staggering.

Anyways, coming back to our regularly scheduled toy collecting for a moment, I picked up two figures from Pacific Rim, one of my new absolute favorite movies:


Awesome stuff as always NECA.

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

The only other high-ranking, easily recognizable heroine in the Star Wars Saga is Padmé, but your display is clearly OT-oriented, so it'd make no sense to slip Natalie Portman's character into the mix.

I mean, there's Rebel Alliance leader Mon Mothma....but who aside from the more hardcore Star Wars nerds knows or even cares who Mon Mothma even is?

Not to mention that Sideshow has yet to make a figure or either Padme or Mon Mothma. Looking, back I really should have made Loki the Emperor, but it wouldn't have been as visually interesting.

Glorious.

Blood Gulch would be proud to host such a magnificent armored warrior.

Love those HALO figures. I don't have many, only about four of the 5.5-inch line, but they're cool to both play with and display, IMO.

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

McFarlane's Halo figures are just great. It proves that they're still capable of fantastic work. Makes me wonder what the heck happened with the Walking Dead line.

Picked up the DCC Joker from Death of the Family. Man, this figure is great. The detail is gruesome, as it should be. It perfectly captures the look of the Joker from this story. It's also a nice break from the purple suit after purple suit that Joker figures tend to be.

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

Major Star Wars reveals tonight!

-a new Ree-Yees in the Black Series (3.75")

-new Dagobah Luke with training backpack
-Wedge Antilles in Hoth Snowspeeder Gear
-Torynn Farr
-Snowtrooper Commander
-another Darth Vader of an as-yet-unknown theme and film

Plus:

-the very first glimpse at Star Wars: Rebels action figure packaging for late 2014 (hint: it'll remind you a whole lot of the 2008 Legacy Collection and Clone Wars designs)

Earth 2 GL and Wonder Woman look great. Black Cat and Superior Spidey are must buys for me. i may not be so fond of the comic, but i do dig the Superior Spidey suit.

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

Some NYCC Hasbro Night pics of four of the brand new, upcoming Black Series 3.75" figures in the waves following Darth Plagueis.

While this new Yoda might be a smidge too tall as somebody else pointed out, he looks like he might be the all-time best action figure of the original Frank Oz puppet from Empire.

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

I'm really not a fan of the Earth-2 redesigns, so I guess I'll be passing on those. Also, Wonder Woman seems an odd choice. Wasn't she killed off in the first issue? Why not Hawkgirl instead? The cartoony War figures don't appeal to me, either. Yeesh, I'm a downer, aren't I?
