I know nothing about this series, besides vaguely remembering it as Masked Rider years ago on Fox Kids. That is one seriously awesome looking figure, though. Of course, I'm a sucker for anything translucent and crystally.

Same here. Unless I Googled it I couldn't tell you a thing about it, but the figures do look pretty detailed and very cool.

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

Really looking forward to seeing what Kira's Mom and the Avengers have planned for Halloween since we're now just a handful of days away. In other news:

The Amazon.com-exclusive Droid Factory figures on unique cardbacks are about to ship.

I don't know if anyone here ordered them after learning they're online exclusives and are the only way to get Count Dooku's Pilot Droid (FA-4) from his solar sailer ship, but if you did then you should receive them soon. There are six figures in the Amazon line and, of course, you can build a seventh figure which is a protocol droid from The Clone Wars and Jabba's Palace.

The two different heads for the new Sideshow Collectibles "Dark Contemplation" Mythos statue.

Hayden Christensen for a younger Vader during the early period after he is first encased in his life-support armor:



Sebastian Shaw for an older Vader later in and at the very end of his life:

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

The 60s Batman line from Mattel has been great. We've gotten Adam West as Batman, Burt Ward as Robin, Caesar Romero as the Joker, Burgess Meredith as the Penguin, Frank Gorshin as the Riddler, and now some random woman as Catwoman:


Disappointing, really. They're been so on the mark with the likenesses so far, but I can't see any of Newmar in this one.

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

Yeah, that's the weakest figure in the new Batman line to be sure. If they were just going to miss the mark with a Julie Newmar likeness we could have gotten a great Eartha Kitt instead, but oh well. They could always do a running change if they have to to correct her head.

They could, but I would say there's a better chance of Hasbro forever swearing off all repacks for the rest of time than there is of Mattel going back and giving this figure a new head.

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

All I ask is that their Egghead figure look like Vincent Price. Get Catwoman wrong and you have two other actresses who played her. Get Egghead, King Tut or the Bookworm wrong and there's not much you can do unless you make running changes, and like you said Mattel probably wouldn't bother.

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

Catwoman was supposed to be the last figure in this line. There have been rumblings, though, that this line has far outperformed Mattel's expectations, and they want to continue it. They showed off a Surfs Up Joker at NYCC. That figure is an extremely simple repaint, so they could cobble it together quickly. Any other figure would require development time, so it may be SDCC at the earliest before we hear more. Word before was that Yvonne Craig was holding out on her likeness. She recently announced she had made a deal on the merchandising rights, though. Seems there is still hope for a Batgirl, Egghead, King Tutt, Bookworm, or Eartha Kitt Catwoman.

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

I know some fans don't like him and some people have never heard of his character, but Roddy McDowall's Bookworm was fun. Plus, it'd be a Roddy McDowall action figure, and aside from a Cornelius or two made from the original Planet of the Apes films and TV series how often do we ever see that?

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

Started collecting miniature Star Trek ships recently for playing the Federation Commander game. Between Heroclix/Star Trek Attack Wing and MicroMachine minis, I've got a pretty nice collection. Now I just have to figure out how to get them onto 1" hexstands for the game. Also keeping an eye out for the old FASA Star Trek starship miniatures.

Anyone else into this?

Wow. Those Sideshow Anakin Vader's look awesome!

Just a heads up for Arkham Origins fans. Wave One of the line is now available to order from Big Bad Toy Store and I assume in stores soon if not now already. I'll be picking up Batman next week. Black Mask next month, and maybe even Mistah Jay too.
