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

Looking forward to Toy Fair. Not sure what I'm looking forward to most, but I am eager to see if Funko are going to give us a first look at the ReAction Buffy and Firefly figures.

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

Honestly, I'm not big on the ReAction stuff. I guess I just don't go in for nostalgia in toys. I'm more interested in the Legacy line. The first couple that I have really give me high hopes going forward.

Oh, I'm also looking forward to seeing what piece of drivel Mattel tries to pass off as their "gift to the fans" for the final DC Universe figure. What? Bitter? I'm not bitter. No siree.

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

Yeah, I'm not expecting much in regard to the final DC Universe figure. Frankly, I'm not expecting much form the Buffy and Firefly line, but if they're as half decent as the other figures from other lines have been...I might partake.

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

It's almost certain to be the unreleased light blue Superman repaint. There's no way Mattel is sinking another dime into this. Best case scenario is it comes with an oft rumored Mxylzptlk pack in.

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

I'm fairly sure that Hasbro will hold off on any really big, exciting Star Wars reveals until San Diego Comic-Con this coming summer, right around the time Rebels launches. NY Toy Fair tends to be where the company gets appetites whetted for Comic-Con and most of the stuff on display are items we already knew about but just hadn't seen any pictures of.

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

I still think we will get a couple "Rebel" sneak peaks for this weekend, but yeah you're right...we will probably get true reveals at SDCC.


I'm also interested in if we will be getting any more Amazing 2 figures. They've not really unleashed the line yet I don't think. I'm still hoping for Guardians figures too. I want a Rocket Raccoon!

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

I'm guessing they're going ahead full steam with Toy Fair in spite of the nasty winter weather up in New York. If they were going to delay or even cancel the show they'd have said something by now. Game on!

Game on indeed. I love this time of year. It is like a second Christmas. Can't wait to see! CAN'T WAIT!

And before I forget to post about it... again... I have all of Funko's Star Trek figures now. I LOVE them. Other than some messy paint here and there they are fantastic. Hope they do more! (I need a Dr. McCoy, dammit.)

I really need to get all those Funko Trek figures. Plus the Funko Jay and Silent Bob.

And they'll be $20 each. Rocket Raccoon is the Black Series R2-D2 of the GotG line... he'd better come with plenty of accessories!

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

Just breaking online:

The very first image of the Kanan action figure from the Hasbro Rebels line.



Looks nice, but that archaic 5-POA design won't sit well with a lot of collectors. I hope the head is at least a modern ball joint.
