I just found this very cool montage of every basic-carded Kenner Star Wars figure from the legendary 12-Backs of 1978 straight through the Power of the Force (silver collector's coin) line of 1985 that brought the classic Kenner era of SW figures to an end (the animated Droids and Ewoks figures were concurrent and followed, but they weren't movie-related action figures based on the Saga and had brief, limited runs).

Thought this might be a fun, colorful trip down memory lane for some of you. It is for me.

Oh my... I had a number of these, especially the ones from "Return of the Jedi". My favorite was the Yoda from "Empire". I carried him absolutely everywhere but lost him somewhere at the San Diego Zoo when I was seven. It IS fun... but kind of sad. Damn, we are old aren't we.

As for my recent action figure collecting, I haven't done very much. I thought about getting the new Diamond Select Thor and Jane but I wasn't all that interested in adding them. I have the last version of Thor they did and the sculpt of Jane in the blue dress didn't interest me all that much. She should be kicking ass not looking like a damsel in distress. I did purchase the last two waves of the Star Wars 6-inch Black Series and have the third on preorder. I am disappointed in the selection for wave three but I am still buying it. And just an FYI, the Boba Fett in wave two is AMAZING. I think he may be my favorite so far in the line. I have also preordered the 5-inch John Hurt to go with my Doctor Who collection. I also added Rory and Amy to the companion collection. I wish they would hurry up and release a Clara at the 5-inch scale though. It just seems weird to have all the modern companions (plus River, Jack, and Sarah Jane) and Clara not be there.

OdoWan's one of the most creative people I've ever met on this board and has such a joy for collecting and toys. He's great.

Well, my intent was that she's the cliched horror movie girl in heels that trips when running from the monster, but it's hard to convey that without outright saying it.

It's like a frat party. Only not as weird.

I was hoping somebody would notice that. I'm kinda proud of it. That zombie figure has a detachable arm at the elbow. I stuck it to the back of Kitty's head, and used perspective to make it looks like she's phasing through it.

I'm trying to figure out where Ash's errant hand got off to in those pics.

Knowing Ash, somewhere very entertaining and extremely disturbing in a comically-exaggerated and surreal way.

I kinda forgot it in this one. Worry not, Ash's hand will return in glorious fashion later today.
