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

Heh. Same here, except I have them tucked behind the back of the base on the display. That's the curse of having multipe display options. I still need to get around to picking up the Kirk with Khan.

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

Yeah, I want Kirk/Khan, too. But then I'd need to make even more shelf space...

I was in the attic yesterday, I have one of the old resin model kits of Kirk that my mom found at a yard sale years ago, and now I can't find it. It must be in the attic somewhere. My mom somehow stumbled upon a yard sale with like dozens of model kits, mostly Star Wars though and she gave those to my brother. Now I want to go dig around and look for it again.

I just put my extra Spock parts in a baggie in my desk drawer, along with a bunch of Cardassian weapons and stuff that go to my Dukat and Garak figures. I'm always paranoid about losing all the extra parts. Maybe I can put Spock's extra tricorder on Garak or something. ^_^

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

I've seen the Kirk/Khan figure set with the Enterprise engineering control console. I actually like it a lot more than Spock and the Horta, but I've seen the Spock set a lot more often. I hope they make more classic TOS sets like these because a Pike with Talosian, Kirk with Balok or Kirk and Spock in Iotian gangster clothes would be pretty sweet additions to the line.

Yes. I would totally buy all those, if they existed.

Now I'm wanting to buy the Kirk/Khan one right now, but I've already exceeded my budget on Star Trek junk this week. Gotta take the dogs to the vet tomorrow so I'm not allowed to buy any action figures today. ^_^ Soon, though.

Oy, people! That's the joke! Why is this going right over so many peoples' heads?

I walked into work today to find that one of my coworkers had done this to the Green Lantern figure I keep on my desk:


I'm half-tempted to just keep him this way

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

OdoWan is a meme now?

Uh-oh.

That means self-aware status will happen in a matter of hours, and pulling the plug will do no good. Human civilization as we know it has come to an end and only the memes will rule this planet.

Hahahahahahaha!

Yes, my creation shall soon thrive, and take over every corner of this world. All shall bow to me!




Or, as its first act, it kills me. Either one.

Either way, John Connor is involved.

Time to send my Hot Toys T-1000 back to the past, then.

Most disturbing superhero ever. Well, except for Chronic Flatulence Man and his partner, The Flame.

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

According to Jedi Temple Archives, Black Series Wave 2 (3.75", the Mara Jade assortment) has just been spotted at retail in New Mexico and in Texas. This follows on the heels of an earlier report that somebody on the West Coast had seen the Mara Jade wave in their local store. Looks like it's time to start checking the pegs once again.
