Ok, sorry for the delay. Blame Ron Burgundy.

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

Thanks.

Question for you guys. Considering how much of a Where's Waldo these pics are becoming, do you have interest in me pointing out some of the mini-stories I have running there, or my thought processes on the particular figure placement? Or do you guys prefer to find them yourselves?

You can reveal some of them if you like, I don't mind. But yeah, if it were up to me I'd leave at least some of them for us to discover on our own.

Alright then, I'll not ruin the fun. I do wonder sometimes if what makes sense in my head really translates well to the pictures, though.

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

Looks like McQuarrie Concept Han Solo is smacking the crap out of Heath Ledger's Joker, so while I'm not sure what's going on in that situation I imagine it must be an epic little disagreement.

Well, he is a psychotic killer, and all. Concept Han is just protecting the party from further casualties, I guess.

And for some reason, (perhaps laziness about having to pose an increasing number of figures) I find the thought of Egon just going around scanning things despite all the chaos to be very funny. Your mileage may vary.

Hey, it's what Egon would naturally do. Other than collect spores, molds and fungi, of course.

I didn't notice dead Flash coming back as a zombie (and being put down by Ash) until this one, so I had to go back and look!

I imagine McCoy saying "He's undead, Jay."

Hmmm, I just realized there's actually two Doctor McCoys here.

I just noticed the 2-1B Medical Droid. Silly me.

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

For what it's worth I found both Pablo-Jill and Luminara Unduli (Black Series 3.75") today. And at a Walmart of all places, and just five short days before Christmas! Walmarts have just plain dropped the ball on new Star Wars figures recently and this was the first time I'd seen new, premium, collector-aimed 3.75" figures on this store's pegs in ages.

I saw both of those at Target a few weeks ago at the same time I found Mara. It took all of my willpower to pass up Pablo Jill. That's a really nice looking figures.

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

I couldn't pass. Right now he's ranked as the most popular Wave 2 figure on a couple of the collecting sites and is just too exotic, weird and cool to pass up. Besides, I don't think he's being carried forward in the Wave 3 case assortment (Darth Plagueis) so sometimes you just have to grab 'em when you see 'em or risk the wild eBay prices.

Wave 2 of both the 3.75" and 6" lines is really slow getting into most stores.
