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

Anyone looking for the Captain America: The Winter Soldier Legends figures may try checking their Wal-Marts. They're doing the spring resets, and adding them into the set. However, word is that plenty of Wal-Marts are getting in cases of the new second wave (Movie Cap, Black Widow, and Winter Soldier) instead of the first wave that has been around a while at Targets.

On another note, here's more comic:

DCUC heads pop off and back on pretty easily with a little hot water, and the Black Series Han's head pops off easily even without. Hal will have his head back soon enough.

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

Yeah, those Black Series heads come off with little effort. That's how so many customized Han Stormtrooper and Luke Stormtroopers have been made by collectors who pop off the heads of the two Rebels and put them on the Sandtrooper body minus all his desert gear and equipment.

M. Night Shyamalan could learn a thing or ten from this.

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

This won't interest many, but in terms of new Star Wars product that hasn't been seen yet here's the 12" Stormtrooper in "Lava Vader" packaging that's due in stores sometime later in the year. While not terribly impressive due to a glaring lack of certain paint apps and details to keep the retail price down to $9.99 I can see some fellow collectors scooping a bunch of these up for customizing purposes and building squads.

It's not much, but it is an OT Stormtrooper, and with a few exceptions those perform well in stores.

Finished yet another Hawkeye cross stitch- he looks so sad! Maybe my Hawkeye figures will cheer him up!

"Han Solo...you have the ability to overcome great fear." "I do?" "You are now Green Lantern of Space Sector Corellia."

That was awesome.

I'd normally say that someone couldn't top themselves after that, but I sincerely believe he can.
