Look what cult movie fans have made using their own impressive talents:



The will of Manos decrees that this is awesome!

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

I usually only buy the pop culture Barbies. I love my Katniss doll. Robert Tonner also did Hunger Games dolls, and his just didn't look right (which is rare for Tonner dolls). Glad I didn't waste my money.

I might put Batman and Catwoman Ken and Barbie on my Christmas wish list. And the 2013 Holiday Barbie is gorgeous- I might at least buy the ornament. I just don't like that Hallmark doesn't do them anymore. American Greetings ornaments usually look so cheap.

Looks like there's a Tom Servo replica and a Dalek figure behind Torgo. Just noticed 'em. Cool.

I never knew I wanted Manos figure until now.

That is a really good custom.

I'd buy one.

Oh, who am I kidding. I'd buy five.

Is Grievous actually supposed to be this tall compared to other Star Wars figures?

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

Actually if you look at the CGI Grievous in Episode III and the Grievous introduced in the Tartakovsky microseries around the same time, Grievous would probably be even larger and taller compared to humanoid figures. To be frank I've always felt that most of his 3.75" action figures since 2005 have been a little on the small side and that they haven't really nailed his proper dimensions in that scale, but the overall likenesses have been close enough or even spot-on so the size issue doesn't matter as much most of the time.

This month's DC Club figure is Ocean Master. Well, if the line has to end, at least we're getting some real home runs like this one before it goes.

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

They're cancelling the DC Club exclusives? Did they say why?

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

They needed a certain number of subscribers to go on ahead with next year's club, and we missed the mark by a wide margin. Ra's Al Ghul and Batzarro will be the last two club figures in November and December. The four figures that they showed for next year's club (90s Aquman, Ice, Superboy, and Damian Wayne) will be released as quarterly exclusives on MattyCollector.com. The containment suit Doomsday will be next year's SDCC exclusive. After those figures are out, the line is done.

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

Ocean Master looks awesome. I'll be picking up Ra's next month when he becomes available.

So I've had false starts before, but looks like next week I'll be ordering the Diamond Select Enterprise E ending my two and half year long wait. I am getting the First Contact version. Also will be ordering Faceless Joker.

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

Another new 31" Jakks Pacific Star Wars collectible is about to hit.

I'd have much rather seen a classic OT Stormtrooper or, say, Darth Maul than this particular Clone Trooper, but he still looks really cool considering how much plastic and detailing you get for $30 or $40. If this line continues I'd love to see other classic characters get made. Can you imagine how tall a Chewbacca would be if they designed him to-scale with the other humanoid characters?
