One of the best aspects of these is that I can picture the actual onscreen characters saying these things. None of it feels out of character whatsoever.

Just breaking: the very first carded images of three of the brand new, upcoming figures in Wave 4 of The Black Series (3.75").

Is it sad I had to look up the last character on Wookiepedia? I also wonder if Willrow Hood will be in the black series.

Toryn Farr: you might not have a clue who she is, but we've made her. So stop bugging us.

Inspired by yesterday's episode of Avengers Assemble, Mojo World...Hawkeye has learned his lesson. The Hulk will eat all of his pickles if he doesn't guard them!

Pickles. More dangerous than Loki and Red Skull combined!

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

Today was a toyapalooza for me!

First, I told myself I wasn't going to pick up any of the new DC Total Heroes. The style is cartoony, and I'm still bitter about them replacing my beloved DC Universe Classics. But, I'm a sucker for anything Green Lantern, and for $10 figures these are really not bad, so I grabbed Hal and Sinestro


Second, I found the John Hurt Doctor. Man, the likeness on this this thing is just astonishing!


And finally I picked up the DC Collectibles Arkham Orgins Killer Croc. This is one huge hunk of toy! Loads of articulation, a beautiful sculpt, fantastic paint, twice as large as any of the other figures in the line, and still only $24.99. When DCC released the Arkham City Croc, it was the same exact size, but they charged $80 for it. I guess they learned thier lesson. This time around, Croc is the same price as the rest. Is it too early to call figure of the year?

Sinestro actually looks pretty nice, IMO; not as cartoon-oriented as Hal does, and he's not too shabby either.

I really, really want this Black Widow from Winter Soldier. But she's just too damn expensive.

Still waiting for my Funko Pop! Black Widow, too. Toy Wiz is so pokey.

The reason she's so expensive is because the second wave of Winter Soldier figures is only just now starting to hit. Widow is the most sought after, and is female so she's shortpacked. Hence the price gauging. I'm on the hunt for her, too. Just be patient, and watch your local stores. She'll hopefully start showing up in better numbers soon enough.

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

My friends, the long wait is finally over! Today was the day! After waiting almost three years my Diamond Select Enterprise-E arrived this morning! Not quite the "Nemesis" version I originally wanted, I opted to get the "First Contact" version which is just beautiful. I think it's even the re-issue.

Also the Marvel Infinite Series Amazing Spider-Man 2 figure is just simply astonishing. One of the best Spidey figures I've ever seen. The first one I've owned since I was a little kid.

I'll try and post the pictures I took later.
