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

I'm not even sure if my own Target and TRU are carrying those figures. My stores are either Johnny on the Spot with the new releases or they're really late in getting product on the pegs. Who knows, though, because we're a large enough city and metro area that one collector could have come in and wiped out their new figure stock in just one visit. I've seen it happen with Star Wars. One guy shows up and buys all the new stuff in one purchase, leaving little or no evidence that the store even stocked the newest product to begin with.

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

Good news for Super Mario fans: we are finally getting a fully poseable Mario figure, thanks to S.H Figuarts.





Toy News International

The display is from the Nuremburg Toy Fair.

Not everything comes together, though, but rather as three separate items. The Mario figure comes with a mushroom, coin, and Question Mark block. Playset A consists of a Goomba, a coin, a Question Mark block, two brick blocks, and a green base, as well as a stand for the blocks and an adjustable stand that holds Mario in the air. Playset B Comes with a Goomba, Koopa Troopa shell, coin, alternate Mario hands to hold the shell, and both a short pipe and tall pipe.

As for American Dollar pricing, BigBadToyStore lists the Mario figure at $24.99, and the two playsets at $19.99 each.

I would love to get these, if it weren't for the price.

Mama mia! It's a dream a-come true!

That price actually doesn't sound too bad to me considering the prices of their other figures.

I have the Super Mario Bros. 3 theme song playing in my head right now, and it is glorious.

Those look pretty sweet, and the prices sound reasonable.

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

Are you guys kidding? This is the most ridiculous piece of fanwankery ever committed!

Ok, the time for exposition is over. The time for action is forthcoming. Time to make that articulation count.

Fanwankery is what 21st century pop entertainment's all about.
