I see both of the Loki sleigh ride pictures. Which one are you not seeing right now?

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

The upcoming Obi-Wan and Darth Maul Mission Series two-pack based on the recent The Clone Wars Maul story arc. I'm not the biggest fan of the face and head on the Maul and the black and crimson paint apps bleed together a little too much, but there are some redeeming qualities in both of these figures considering they're budget sculpts with just five joints each. The Obi-Wan would look pretty fantastic if they'd bother to add more texture and screen-accurate paint apps to his face and hair, but as-is he's not that all bad for a $5 Jedi action figure in this day and age. You get what you pay for, and at least $5 Star Wars action figures look a lot better than most other $5 action figures.

There's already talk on the websites that this will be a pretty popular set no matter what you think of the paint apps and articulation because Clone Wars fans and collectors will be craving new figures to add to their stash in the wake of the series' cancellation and Hasbro's abrupt abandonment of the separate TCW action figure and vehicle lines.

Has it cleared up? I'm seeing both. The second one has Loki's head being nuzzled or chewed upon by the sleigh horse.

I swear Obi-Wan looks like Chuck Norris with that head sculpt. Not liking that at all, the Darth Maul isn't too bad. Han looks a bit off as well, Chewie looks great though!

I think Han looks like John Fogerty in the '80s and '90s.

That's no Bad Moon Rising. That's a space station.

Sorry guys. No 12 days today. I've been out all evening and just didn't have time to set it up today. Getting up into the higher numbers, it can take over an hour to do. It'll be back tomorrow, I promise.

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

A Hasbro specimen of what the new Padmé Amidala in the Black Series would have looked like had the original 2013 Legacy Collection / Droid Factory retail line not been cancelled and the 3.75" figure lines so hastily reorganized.



And yes, she does have little brown or black numbers printed on her forehead. Early production copies prior to retail and prototypes are often marked like this, and many early display figures at toy fairs and comic-cons have these numbers printed on their bodies to denote their status as internal, non-retail copies of the characters owned and controlled by the company.

At least that's the most logical, sensible explanation. They're obviously internal Hasbro numbers of some sort used to mark their prototypes and first factory copies.

Was able to get two of the battle-damaged Hot Wheels' U.S.S. Enterprise from my local Walgreens for sixty-nine cents each!

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

They showed up at Walgreens of all places?

Thanks a lot, big box and major retailers. Glad you could score them! I myself have yet to see one lone Hot Wheels Enterprise anywhere except online.
