Toy Roshi is coolest Roshi. Great birthday haul, man! They're all cool gifts, but that Artoo is really interesting.

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

So how often does this happen? A major toy company announces a line, and it makes it into stores before we even see a prototype picture. Well, it's happened with Funko's new multi-license Legacy Series. The first wave of Game of Thrones figures have started hitting Barnes and Nobles. These are 6" scale, and have Star Wars Black Series style articulation. Wave 1 has Ned Stark, Tyrion Lannister, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Sandor "The Hound" Clegane, and a White Walker.

I picked up Jon and Dany. Tyrion was sold out already.


The body sculpts are great, and the articulation works well. The faces....eh. I think the likenesses are in there, but the paint is letting them down. Still, they're recognizable as the characters they're supposed to be. This makes me anticipate the Firefly figure even more.

They are rather light an accessories, though. Jon only comes with Longclaw, and Dany only with Drogon. I wish there had been a little more bang for out buck, especially at the $19.99 price point.

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

So they are real! Yeah that almost never happens! I'm getting a Tyrion and Daenerys.

Also the Funko ReAction lines have been starting to trickle out...giving us a clue what to expect for the "Firefly" and "Buffy" lines. I think most fans will be pleased.

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

Question for you guys: Does anyone here own any of the Dragon Age action figures by DC Unlimited (or has seen them up close) and are they any good?

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

New York Toy Fair kicks off this coming weekend. Can't wait to see the first pics from the display floor so some of the mysteries about upcoming product will finally be settled. I'm not expecting much out of the Hasbro Star Wars license that hasn't already been revealed but it would be cool to see pics of, say, the upcoming 3.75" Ree-Yees figure or the planned 6" Black Series Chewbacca.

Grrrr. Bought a NECA Classic Xenomorph from TRU and didn't realize until I got it home and opened it that the right foot had broken off. Now I gotta go take it back and hope they'll exchange it for me.

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

They should. My own TRU has been good with exchanges or store credit so long as the purchase was recent and/or you still have the receipt. I've returned more than a few items over the years and was turned down just once in all that time. Toys "R" Us is generally pretty flexible with damaged, returned product and if you literally just bought the thing I don't see any logical reason why they'd tell you no.

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

Yeah. I wouldn't imagine it would be a problem. I still have the receipt. I'll probably stop there before I meet a friend for a movie tomorrow.

Today, though, I have more adventures for you:

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

My favourite thing about this so far...aside from the plot itself of course...is the fact that you have their characterizations down pat!

Man, you can say that again. OdoWan definitely knows these characters and can come up with some pretty fun and interesting dialogue.

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

Thanks. It does kinda help that most of these characters are ones I've been watching since I was old to enough to know what a movie or tv show was.
