That sounded vaguely twisted and disturbing but also awesome at the same time.

I went a little bit wider this time so that all the action doesn't get lost:

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

It just keeps getting more awesome.

Have the current toy and collectible-makers ever manufactured a 3.75" or six-inch version of Jack Nicholson's Joker? I've seen larger statues and busts and I know the toy companies made Nicholson toys back in 1989 to tie in with the first modern Batman film, but is there a new or newer Jack version of the character on the toy market at the moment?

Besides Hot Toys, no. Mattel is starting a new 3.75" line next year and showed off Keaton Batman along with the Penguin and Catwoman from Returns, but nothing from the first Batman film. One can only hope it's in the pipe.

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

It would be very cool to get a brand new Jack Nicholson in his 1989 makeup and costume with a few pieces of his film gear. Imagine what modern sculpting and tooling could do for a Nicholson Joker figure. Replicating his trademark grin and those sinister Nicholson eyes in plastic should be pretty fun.

I would buy it! The Batman Returns stuff they showed was absolutely fantastic looking. I just wish it had been in 6" scale.

I saw that! Also, it must be a Crisis-mas, 'cause we have a dead Flash.

And Romero's Joker is stealing bits from Moe Howard!

Envisioning the Joker, Riddler and Penguin as the Three Stooges just opened up an all-new horizon of weird for me, and I'm enjoying it.

Loki decided to treat the Avengers to an old fashioned sleigh ride...albeit with a giant horse.



LOKI NO!

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

Maybe it's just me, but I can't see your pictures.

Hopefully mine works. Yeesh. Every day these things take longer and longer to make. It's worth it, though.


Fun fact: The Han Solo furthest to the right was the first Star Wars figure I ever owned, and I think is the earliest of my toys that I still do own.

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

That's weird. I can see it fine.

That's a lot of Solos!

I just saw this video about crap Chinese Avengers action figure rip-offs- it's 15 minutes long, but it's hilarious.

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

Well fine. I guess I'll just have to wait to enjoy them until my internet stops being stupid.

That's not even all of my Solos. Some didn't make the cut.

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

I know the feeling. If you saw how many different Han Solo action figures I have you'd double or triple take. There's a new one coming out in the second wave of the Mission Series 2-packs that actually doesn't have all that bad a likeness (though it's a little more 1985 John Fogerty than 1977 Harrison Ford) and comes with a Chewbacca somewhat reminiscent of the original Kenner figure from the late seventies.

Two classic OT heroes for $9.99 isn't a bad deal, though you do have to put up with minimal articulation and not as many fine paint apps and details as you get on premium collector-focused fare. Looks pretty much like A New Hope Han, though....certainly a whole lot more than the earliest of the Modern Era figures starting in 1995. You might wanna pick him up just for the cheap price and the classic Han Solo factor alone.
