They look pretty awesome, and for $29.99 each at their big size and with all their accurate sculpting and electronic features they're a good bargain. Apparently all Disney Store locations will eventually get these figures.

In my own scores from earlier today, I stopped at my friend's local toy shop and found a few figures I either didn't already have or wanted extras of, including the 2009 Legacy Collection Spacetrooper, the specially-armored and -equipped Stormtroopers from A New Hope that stood outside in the vacuum of space and watched the Millennium Falcon being tractor beamed into the Death Star. I also found an Imperial R5 astromech droid I didn't already have (R5-J2) that was originally released in the 2006 Saga Collection line.

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

Aside from the obvious Capullo designs...I'm also very excited for the articulation. That was the one aspect of the New 52 Justice League figures I was disappointed on (with perhaps the exception of Batman). I'm hoping we get an Aaron Kruder Superman with the Designer line. He's become one of my new favourite artists. I still want a Cliff Chiang Wonder Woman too.

Hello Kitty and hello, Kitty.



The Black Knight loves Hello Kitty! Pryde thinks he's a dork.

Hello Kitty has never been more action-packed or thrilling. Nice.

That's what I thought at first (it is, after all, family-friendly Disney Store merchandise we're talking about) but it's actually the red translucent plastic where the blaster lights up when you fire it.

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

Not an action figure (didn't know where else to put it), but inspired by a recent re-read of New Excalibur. Captain Britain and Pete Wisdom were snarling at each other the entire issue ("I'm the boss!" "No, I am!") and in this panel I was sure they were going to drop their trousers and get a ruler. So I added a caption...



Boys, PLEASE. (Actually, the girls on the team were even worse...)

San Diego Comic-Con exclusive packaging for the 6" Black Series version of Jabba the Hutt. This one will come with a cardboard dais and a Salacious Crumb figure sculpted to appropriate scale. The standard retail version of Jabba will be packaged in a more conventional window box, lack the dais and may or may not include Salacious Crumb.

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

I know the feeling. It's impressive, but not impressive enough to justify the overinflated price and complications of buying the thing.

I'll wait until the regular retail version hits stores and then hope he's adequately stocked.

The upcoming 6" Speeder Bike with Biker Scout. This might be even more popular than the Jabba, and this one doesn't have any Comic-Con exclusive packaging to track down.

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

Here are some dolls of Prince Andrew, Sarah Duchess of York, and Prince William. Note the detail on Sarah's train. These are Danbury Mint dolls.














Sarah's train is nearly 5 feet long.

Here is Prince Charles and the little Bridesmaid dolls by Danbury Mint. They go with the Princess Diana doll I posted earlier.
