Nice.

I like that particular Vader sculpt. He's been a little overused in recent years (most of him dates back to a special commemorative Vader that came inside a plastic meditation chamber package in 2005, around the same time Episode III was in theaters), but it's still a nice Darth Vader and looks great on display.

I think the Luke is the 1996 POTF2 Jedi Luke figure without his outer plastic robes.

That's Luke?
He looks like He-Man's emo brother.

1990's Luke figures were often very - how shall I put this? Open to interpretation.

Luke was not alone in that. All of the early POTF2 figures looked like they were hitting the juice pretty hard.

In retrospect, Monkey Face Leia's monkey face was one of the least inaccurate things about her 1995 figure.

I'm now imagining Rorschach going around calling everyone "bitch." It's quite amusing.

Oh, and there's two Walters in that picture.

That reminds me: I should really get a Walter White action figure.

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

After all, he IS the one who collects.

A couple of fuzzy smartphone pics have leaked onto Facebook allegedly showing Star Wars: Rebels products on the display floor of the upcoming NY Toy Fair. No carded action figures, but it seems as if Rebels will have a decent-sized display of merchandise at Toy Fair alongside whatever other Hasbro Lucas product has been brought along for the ride. Based on the images I saw it looks like everything including LEGOs will bear the animated Stormtrooper helmet logo with lots of white and orange in the color template.

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

Ten days and counting until the start of New York Toy Fair!



Apparently the new Transformers line (Age of Extinction) will take center stage in Hasbro's attention at the event with fresh Marvel product related to the new Captain America film and other projects also sharing the main spotlight from the company. Naturally, Star Wars, G.I. Joe and My Little Pony will also feature prominently but this year looks like it might be a robot and superhero-heavy Hasbro presentation. Stay tuned!

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

A superhero heavy presentation is all gravy with me. Of course, I don't really even think I need to say that.

A new installment of my action figure comic that really needs a title is coming soon, I promise. I've had some busy evenings lately, and just haven't gotten around to it.
