Hearing those lines in a Chris Hemsworth Thor voice is the funniest part of the whole thing. That was pretty sweet!

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

A brief intermission from Monty Python...a solo Tiny!Pete photo. Pete is in heaven- he found my parents' rather large stash of gin.



An explanation for the gin stash- they won it in a silent auction at a 1920's themed party.



Yes, that is a bathtub. Bathtub gin, get it? It was made just for this party and the gin stash. So they have a mini bathtub to display all their booze for parties!

Even that much gin won't last long once Tony finds out about it.

Tony has a redundant stomach.

And liver.

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

Here are some more pictures of my Princess Diana dolls. This one is about the size of a Barbie doll and has a 2 1/2 foot train.






This is a head shot of my Franklin Mint Princess Diana doll redressed in her wedding dress.

Great pics! They really captured her face.

In other collecting news, here's the first image of the upcoming 6" Yoda from The Black Series:



The Dagobah snake looks more like a candy cane than the other snakes that have been packaged with Yoda toys since 1980, but overall this is a pretty great entry in the new 6" figure line. The green's not quite the right shade, but maybe it will be by the time the actual retail version is released in stores.

It looks more like the original Frank Oz puppet than the CGI Yodas in the Prequels. That's probably the best thing about him!

Ah. Bill Paxton.

Also known as Bill Pullman. Or "that guy who's in all those blockbusters but I always get him mixed up with the other guy."
