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

Update:

Scored some brand new (and I mean brand new) stuff at Toys "R" Us and Walmart earlier today. Now I'm almost completely caught up on 3.75" Black Series figures. So glad I can mark almost all of both Waves 2 and 3 off my want list.

Mara Jade and Darth Plagueis are gonna be pretty tough to find on these local pegs.





Sorry the pics aren't as sharp as I wanted. My smartphone is a pretty recent and good model but the resolution on some of these shots don't transfer well to Facebook and Photobucket.

Keep your eyes open, guys. Given all the carry forwards and pegwarmers from Wave 1 these guys will be hot and scarce for a good long while.

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

I got bored, and decided to begin an action figure comic. I've got a plotline planned out here. More to come on an as I feel like it basis:

This is already ten times better than Assimilation Squared!

So... none of the characters are wondering why the other two groups of people are scaled differently?

I'm just glad it makes as much sense at it does. That's no small feat.

Well that's faint praise. What a waste of potential that dull slog was.

I actually plan to address the mix of scales at an appropriate point in the story. Not in the next update (which I'm working on right now) but soon.

Story evolution and character development? That already makes this Action Figure Fotonovel better than 98% of the programming on SyFy.

So much Yes.

Keep 'em coming for as long as you can sustain the storyline.
