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

Clint has already threatened to hit my comic book with an explosive arrow. I need to get a Captain Britain figure (alas, no Pete Wisdom figure exists) to fight with him. They didn't get along too well in Secret Avengers...

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

Clint isn't jealous of my new comic books. He's actually grossed out. "Mom, why are you reading this dirty stuff?" (It's Rudiments of Wisdom from Marvel MAX, so it's naughtier than usual Marvel...)



Um, Clint. You aren't exactly pure yourself:




"Oh, carry on then." And Pete Wisdom again tells him to sod off. (he just had kinky mutant human/fairy sex, he doesn't really care what Hawkeye thinks!)

I wish Wisdom was a popular enough character to have an action figure made of him. He and Tasha would get along so well...spies and assassins.

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

I did something stupid. Well, maybe not stupid but it could be thought of as frivolous. Spending so many years as a starving artist taught me you put money in savings instead of throwing it around like it grows on trees. Anyway, I tracked down and bought a Hot Toys Captain America, the one in the 1940's era costume. I have been wanting one for a while now and I got my tax return. I am so excited I could scream.

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

I was just thinking: next year marks the 20th Anniversary of the modern Star Wars action figure era. The very first Power of the Force 2 figures on orange/red cardbacks were released in 1995 and it's been a steady and sometimes torrential overflow of figures in the two decades since, fueled heavily by the three Prequels and the recent Clone Wars series.

I wonder if Hasbro will plan anything special to mark the occasion before or in conjunction with the worldwide launch of merchandise from Episode VII. The classic Kenner Era lasted less than eight full years (1978-85) and during that timeframe barely 100 different action figures were released....the number since '95 must easily be around two thousand and that doesn't include the pack-in figures often included as a bonus with ships, vehicles and other large items such as playsets.

Why is there a Clone Trooper with grey hair?

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

I'm pretty sure that's just a Clone officer with sandy hair that was artificially colored like that. Jango Fett clones have the original template's black hair unless they shave their heads or dye their hair a different color.

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

Perfect timing. Its just been devalued due to the updated Winter Soldier version of that outfit being announced. A lot of people unloading them, so the prices are lower.

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

^ My thoughts exactly. The one I snatched up (in box, never opened) was for an excellent price. Now if someone would just sell off their 1989 Batman and Joker for a great price I would like to have them too.

I had intended this to be two separate parts, but got carried away. All the more for you guys:

"Overgrown Devaronian." Very nice touch.

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

Great as always, OdoWan!

Clint is throwing a temper tantrum because I have more Excalibur comics coming in. He's so jealous!



I ordered a Captain Britain figure to join my Avengers shelf. He was a Secret Avenger, so why not?

There was a Marvel Legends version of the Brian Braddock Captain Britain some years back. Is that the one you're talking about?
