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

Nice collection! Sharp and very cool.

I think the pics should be alright. I don't think a Mod will need to step in and shrink your pics. I and others have posted images that are just as large if not bigger and they were just fine. Thanks for sharing!

The regular price is $59.99 for the entire set that comes in a protective white Hasbro box but in the last week or so that's dropped to as low as $39.99

Dropped again. Including postage to the UK it still all came in at under £30

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

Just released: images from New Zealand of the cardback reverses of the upcoming Saga Legends Boba Fett and Stormtrooper figures (five points of articulation). They're not in North American stores just yet.

For just $5.99 I can see a Stormtrooper like this being pretty popular army-building fodder even with the more primitive, reduced, '90s-style articulation. For background troops standing in a review line or quietly guarding something a diorama person wouldn't need them to do much anyways.





I noticed that the photo for the Stormtrooper packaging isn't from A New Hope but a shot from the deleted scene in Jedi where Han and the Rebels storm the Imperial Bunker and get in a firefight with the Stormtroopers inside.

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

Is that a full doll of the Beast behind her? Does anyone know? Was this a special two-doll set or is the Beast in the package more of a space filler and not the same level of quality as Belle?

Looks like a painting to me.

It is a full Beast doll and it's awesome. I'll get a pic tonight and post him for you.

Clint and Tasha having been baking goodies. Clint warns you to not eat the f'ing candy from the gingerbread house. I don't think there's a witch in there, Clint!

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

I've been collecting these TV Show themed Hot Wheels (Miami Vice, Magnum, p.i, Rockford Files etc.) Just curious, but have they done a A-Team van in this style packaging? Got Face's Corvette, but haven't found the A-Team van - have the van already in the regular Hot Wheels packaging...but...I really like the TV themed packaging.

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

They could have probably sold Beast all by himself and he would have been a successful doll.

I really like it, its a more mature take on the Beast. Harder lines and a more serious expression.
