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...
It would fall under Hasbro's Marvel license.

@OdoWan...I kind of thought that, but wasn't entirely sure. Thanks for the clarification.

I personally think the accelerated pygmy defibrillator is the best way to go. Of course, the guacamole will be compromised so that's a tradeoff.

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

Disney Stores are getting Black Series figures in both 3.75" and 6" scales, including Boba and Darth Plagueis. If you have a Disney Store in a mall near you and you collect Star Wars, you might want to make a pit stop and see what's on their peg walls and shelves. Pics are showing up from multiple locations around the country showing shelves with the 6" Boba Fett and pegs containing Waves 2 and 3 of 3.75" Black Series, including the random report of a Darth Plagueis here and there.

My area's Disney Store closed shop a few years ago and the next-closest one is located down in North Carolina so this won't do myself nor local collectors much good, but if you guys know of a Disney Store near you it might be a wise idea to run in there and see what they have. Disney prices are $1 - $5 higher than big box retailers (basic small figures $10.95, six-inch $24.95 or thereabouts) but they seem to be receiving better stock right now than Walmarts or other store chains.

Sadly, it looks like they have no plans for anything, though. There weren't any toys for First Class either. The Wolverine got an awful five-point 3 3/4" line, while the 6" line was made a Diamond exclusive due to lack of retailer interest.

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

I received my order of the 6-inch Black Series Wave 3 today. Sadly they used Han Solo as the "fourth" figure in the set so now I have two of him. (I am shipping him off to my god son.) On the positive side, the rest of the figures are absolutely fantastic. I was even impressed with the prequel Obi-Wan, which I was not all that excited about. But the best of the wave is definitely the Stormtrooper. I must have another one! Bespin Luke is also impressive. They managed to capture the changes in Mark Hamill's face between ANH and ESB nicely.

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

What's the paint job like on your copy of Obi-Wan? One of the complaints is that his eyes are painted very incompetently and his hair is too red.

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

I had seen something about that but the one I received looks great. The hair looks to be the right color. Ewan and I have the same hair color and it matches mine rather well. And the eyes are perfectly fine, if maybe a little intense. The dude looks angry is all. I am very happy with it.

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

Nice! I'm pretty happy to hear that because one of the reviews online complained pretty vociferously about the paint apps on Obi-Wan, but other than that they seem pretty stoked about Wave 3, especially the Stormtrooper. That's cool you pre-ordered - I've never done that with the 6" figures, at least not yet.

And yes: if you have any pics we'd love to see 'em!

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

Marvel Select is apparently doing one figure, something that fans will want (I'm guessing Fass-Neto personally) and the dude in charge of Marvel Legends stated "we never said we weren't doing "X-Men: Days of Future Past" so I expect an Infinite Series line sometime later this year.

Zack Oat also confirmed mini-mates for both "Guardians of the Galaxy", and "X-Men: Days of Future Past".

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

Perhaps they're waiting for the DVD release for X-Men toys. With Captain America and Spider-Man already on the pegs, and Guardians of the Galaxy coming soon, the action figure aisle would get kinda clogged if they added X-Men in there as well.
