KM, your Clintasha display is adoralde.

Astrosmurf, Man is that Cap impressive. I almost don't even see why they need to release a new version when they seem to have nailed it with the first. I love the Hot Toys stuff that I own, and pics like that make me have second thoughts about moving away from buying them.

^ I think the new version comes with a removable helmet and more accessories. But now that I have a taste of this particular line... I want MORE. This may end badly for me.

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

AstroSmurf, that is one awesome figure. Wish I could afford all of the Hot Toys!

OdoWan, thanks! But it won't be complete until I have the Winter Soldier Tasha. Still looking, no luck.

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

Did Hasbro even bother to make a Tasha for the newest Captain America figure line? I haven't seen a picture of her if she exists.

Yeah, in the 6" line. Here's my post from earlier in the thread with a pic.

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

Ah, thanks for the clarification and reminder. Given the tendencies of recent superhero action figure lines it's a wonder any characters outside the main hero and villain ever get made. Wasn't the Iron Man 3 line of 3.75" figures little more than Iron Man himself in a number of different configurations? Seemed like it.

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

Yeah, the Iron Man 3 line was a travesty. Just a bunch of repaints of the same few basic figures, all of them with only 5 points of articulation. Funny, the climax of the film has loads of armors just screaming out "toy advertisement" yet none of them actually got toys.

The final photo in this part may be the single nerdiest photo I have ever taken, and that is saying something:

I don't know if that's the nerdiest picture you've ever posted, but it comes pretty close. It's also very entertaining.

As I promised… here are some pictures of my new Hot Toys Captain America. From the moment I opened the cardboard shipping carton and saw the beautifully luminous figure box inside I knew I was in trouble. As for the figure… holy shit. I think I may have cried when I saw it for the first time.



He just looks so majestic and the costume is jaw-dropping.




The face is amazingly lifelike. The eyes actually look like eyes, with moisture and everything.




Details, details, details! I have spent years designing clothes and sewing but I have no idea how someone sewed all of this without going blind.




This is a size comparison. The smaller figure is the Diamond Select Captain America which stands at seven inches tall. The Hot Toys Captain America is exactly twelve inches tall and towers over the other.


Needless to say I am seriously thinking about investing in more of these. I think I am going to track down the Christopher Reeve Superman next. WANT.

Welcome...they are like crack. Once you have one you want more. I've preordered the Winter Soldier Cap/Steve Rogers figures.

And as the saying goes with collectors, crack is cheaper.

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

^
Yep. Usually.

Today's scores:

-6" Black Series Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues)
-Legacy Collection Wioslea
-Legacy Collection Trinto Duaba & Dice Ibegon
-Saga Collection Luke Skywalker (Endor Gear)
-Saga Collection Death Star Gunner (loose with all accessories and original embossed stand)

I also saw the new 6" Black Series Obi-Wan, but the paint job and apps on his head weren't very good. They could have done much better on that copy. I took a pass on this one.
