Well, Santa Eddie, sadly my wife and daughter opened the boxed set before I could get the photo. Our house is now decorated in Doctors. It's rather comforting!

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

Hey, whatever makes you guys happy! If you've got 'em, use 'em and flaunt 'em! Sounds like your display is pretty fun to look at. It's always fun to put at least some of your toys and collectibles on display to look at and enjoy.

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

When my daughter got into Who a few years ago and we bought a couple of action figures for her (us) to play with, my wife suggested we subtly decorate the house with random Doctors. We're still in the moving-in process of our new house, but it has come to pass. "Find the Doctors" might just be a new party game!

We do think, however, that we've solved the theological mystery of the Wise Men to visit Jesus. It was Doctors 1, 2, and 3... and the Star of Bethlehem was simply their TARDIS.

I'd use Tom Baker in a Nativity display just because the swaddling clothes could then be the Fourth Doctor's scarf.

Congrats on that Enterprise die-cast. I have yet to spot any Trek ships in the Hot Wheels line, but after all these months I really don't expect to see them on store pegs. If they were there then they were snatched up like lightning.
My wife found it at Wegman's, our supermarket. She said there were several there. May want to look at places like this around you.

I might check our Walgreens stores. They sometimes get the toy items that the big-box retail chains have either long sold out of or never bothered to stock in the first place. Sometimes you find interesting product at a Walgreens.

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

Here are my Christmas gifts to my wife, the 17" deluxe limited edition Elsa and Anna dolls. These things are f-ing gorgeous. You can't see it to well but the beading on Elsa's dress is simply amazing, there are little sparkly beads around her neck line. I had to get them on Ebay because they were sold out everywhere but they were totally worth it.

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

Nice and cool Disney dolls. I'm always impressed with the level of detail they put into their premium-quality merchandise and even some of the cheaper, simpler stuff. If Disney ever did buy out Hasbro the quality of the company's figures and other merchandise would undoubtedly stay the same or even rise after such an acquisition.

In other news, Target stores seem to be clearancing their 3.75" Black Series and older Vintage Collection figures (both lines - unfortunately - share the same troublesome DPCI number thanks to Hasbro and Target not taking the time to assign a new one to the Black Series product when it debuted) so if the move works it should finally clear the peg walls in their stores of those unsold, lingering 3.75" characters that have been keeping newer and more interesting wave assortments from being stocked in the numbers they should be. It's something that should have already happened along with a change in the shared DPCI so the stores can differentiate between the two different figure lines and know which one to continue stocking, but better late than never.

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

I finally saw Black Series Wave 2 at retail. It was just pegs full of Greedos and Leias, though, Looks like all the Fetts and Solos got picked clean before I got there. The search continues!

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

Good luck, man. Greedo's the only Wave 2 figure in the 6" line that I'm still missing and I haven't seen him yet, but Han and Boba are out there. I found mine just two days before Christmas during the insane last-minute retail rush at one of my local malls (our biggest), so anything's possible.

They're worth it. Excellent figures, right down to Boba's most minute armor and weaponry details and Han's/Harrison Ford's chin scar.

Don't know if anyone saw this but Amazon is having a huge sale on the 6" Black Series Princess Leia Slave Girl outfit. They are selling it for only $9.95 and only 13 left in stock.

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

Just breaking on the official Star Wars Facebook page.

The first glimpse at the very first action figure from next year's Rebels television series - the Inquisitor, one of the show's main villains.



Looks like five points of articulation might be the standard for the new animated figure line, so I imagine this confirmation won't sit well with a whole lot of longtime collectors, but it's not as if Hasbro and others hadn't hinted at or directly said something about reduced articulation in recent months. Still, throwback articulation aside, the character himself looks kinda interesting. Sort of an Asajj Ventress thing going on with this new guy....maybe his species is the same as hers or he has some connection to the Clone Wars-era Separatists. With the double-bladed weapon and facial markings the creators look like they were going for a bit of a Darth Maul vibe, too.

How much did they have to drink last night? I saw the picture of Clint and the champagne glass.

Nothing! I wouldn't share. The champagne was free, but the waiters were stingy.
