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

I was in the Disney store today at the mall and they now carry Star Wars stuff, including the Black Series.

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

Why am I not surprised to see 25 Wave 2 figures, and not a single Fett among them?

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



Yeah, that was my thought as well.

My own local Disney Store closed down four years ago and the next-closest one is down in North Carolina. Still, it's fun to see a store actually carry a lot of Star Wars figures and ones that aren't just named Biggs or Anakin. Most Walmarts and Targets wouldn't be this well-stocked the night before Black Friday!

Happy Saint Paddy's Day from the Avengers! I didn't have time to do a new set, so here's a repost from last year:



Oh, Clint. It's barely lunchtime and you're already wasted.



Erin go Barf.

Poor Clint. He can hit a target hundreds of meters away with great and lethal precision, but he can't hold his booze. Some superhero.

Well, in comic canon, his dad was a raging alcoholic. Clint probably doesn't drink much because of that!

He needs to nurse his hangover by spending time with Tasha. Not Tony, though.

Clint's liver will look like a Jackson Pollock canvas if he hangs out with Tony.

It's been a little while since the last comic, but I shall compensate with my biggest update yet:

It gets better and better! Solo Lantern to the rescue!

My mini Hawkeye has a baby brother now! Micro Hawkeye!

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

This thread deserves awards for all the Win it's been displaying. I don't care if the medals are just big pieces of chocolate wrapped in gold and silver tinfoil, these pics and strips have been a riot.

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

This is BULLSHIT. Who in their right mind would pay $445.00 for any 6 inch figure? I don't understand why they made Black Widow so rare when there is such a demand for her. My hopes of getting one are crushed.

There is hope!
Revision cases are coming which have two Black Widows in each. Hopefully this means she'll get more prevelant, and prices will drop like a rock. Don't under any circumstance pay more than $20 for her.

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

That's something we in the collecting hobby should see more of, no matter which lines we collect. Revision cases that contain new or recent characters we actually want and not just more of the same crap we're not interested in and/or cause lingering problems at brick-and-mortar retail.

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

A Darth Plagueis I ordered a few days ago just shipped. Can't wait! I'll be completely caught up on my 3.75" Black Series figures once he arrives and can then focus on the newest wave of the 6" characters (Stormtrooper assortment).

Hawkeye is shocked to see yet another possible ancestor of his...and afraid of the man's hair and outfit.
