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

There is one just down the street from my local comic shop/Wal-Mart/Target/other comic shop/Toys R Us/K-Mart/Half-Price Books/Best Buy. Yeah, that one street is a seriously awesome street. I usually forget it's there, or that B&N is actually a good place to find toys. You would think I would remember that, since it's where I scored my Dark Knight Rises Catwoman.

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

Some collectors once reported finding some popular Vintage Collection figures at B&N, including the Gamorrean Guard. I never saw any recent 3.75” figures there but apparently some locations stocked 2011 and 2012 Vintage characters in their toy sections.

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

I think the Black Series is the first time I can remember seeing something mass market there. Before whenever I've been in a Barnes & Noble it's been DC Collectibles and Marvel Select stuff, along with Funko Pops and such. They're currently the only place for Funko's Game of Thrones figures, but those are expected to reach Toys R Us withing a month or so.

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

Yup. In a future wave, sometime after we get the Vader with the removable helmet. I think they might include his walking cane from Jedi, too, so it'll pretty much be the classic OT Emperor as we remember him except for his throne.

I chuckle every time I see that statue. I've been tempted to get one for the giggles.

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

After examining a leaked photo from the Hasbro panel presentation at Toy Fair it appears there's going to be a Black Series version of Clone Commander Wolffe from The Clone Wars Season 6.

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

Another awesome installment!

Zack Oat from Marvel Select confirmed that we would be getting one "X-Men: Days of Future Past" figure at Toy Fair in conversation with reviewer Shartimus Prime. Basically confirmed it wouldn't be a Sentinel, but the character they thought fans would MOST want to see. I'm guessing that will be a Marvel Select Fass-Neto figrue.

Does anyone know the current status of the X-Men film toy license? Who currently has it? I remember Toy Biz did the figures up to "The Last Stand" until their demise...

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

OdoWan kicks it up a notch. Nice. Low- / no-budget it may be, but it's high entertainment for a board thread.

I literally almost fell out of my chair with laughter with the Kirk and Xenomorph panels
