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

I also found the new 3.75" Stormtrooper and Captain Rex from the Saga Legends line. Minimal articulation and just $5.99 each, but for what they are they look nice. The Stormtrooper is excellent diorama fodder but he's packed just one per case assortment so unless your timing at brick-and-mortar is excellent or you buy most of your figures online it's gonna be tough to army build him.

Ok, more comic. This one is a bit short, but exposition scenes are no fun to write.

Not me. I don't collect any of those characters. OdoWan might, though don't quote me on that.

No, since completing my Avengers, I am 100% out of the Hot Toys game. They were expensive before. Now they're just obscene. More than $200 for even the most basic of figures is ridiculous.

Yeah, the prices have moved into the realm of the absurd. The only figure I have left on order is the Man of Steel Superman. I just wanted one to compliment my Dark Knight Batman. It helps that it comes in at $199 which is the cheapest figure now.

Would you ever consider getting Bruce Banner to compliment the Hulk?

I was in Target yesterday and when I walked into the toy section where Star Wars is, this is what I was greeted with.

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

Did you get one or both of them? Greedo can be tough to spot in some areas and none of the four figures in Wave 2 can really be called a cinch to find.

My Toys R Us is Greedos as far as the eye can see. It's Boba Fett that is the true elusive one. Come on, you Mandalorian bastard! Show yourself!

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

Boba's next to impossible. If I hadn't spotted him when I did I'd probably still be searching in vain for the guy. Yet do they carry him forward into Wave 3 to help meet demand and boost sales? Nope. Han.

I think the new 6" Han is great. Just not 6" Boba Fett great.

Ok, the really exciting part is that Firefly will be part of the Funko Legacy Line which is their new realistic, and highly articulated 6" line. They've likened the quality of sculpt and articulation to the Star Wars Black Series. They've also partnered with Gentle Giant (you know, the ones that Hasbro is working with on the Black Series.) So, the prospect of high quality Firefly figures from a company like Funko, which digs really deep in licenses is just making me giddy.
Let's just hope they do a better job than Diamond Select did. The likenesses in their Serenity line were terrible.

Gah! Don't even remind me of those horrible Diamond figures!

More figure comic, this time with rudimentary GIMP special effects!
