Nice. I really like how you have a good representation of the non-humanoid Lanterns. Did you make the custom ones yourself? I especially like Green Lantern Ackbar.

Thank you and yes. I have been customizing for about 30 years now.

So...I have a nail polish called The Black Knight. Absolutely nothing to do with my action figure.

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

So far, Wave 4 of Saga Legends hasn't hit U.S. stores, nor have any U.S.-carded copies of the four figures in that wave even surfaced on eBay or Amazon. Seems as if Canada is the only country in the world that's currently selling the new wave assortment. I have to wonder if this means another international-exclusive wave of figures that American and other collectors will have to pay an online premium or vastly overinflated secondary market prices to get.

Saga Legends Wave 4 is:

Obi-Wan Kenobi (The Clone Wars)
Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker (Return of the Jedi)
Darth Maul
Snowtrooper

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

Collecting site Bantha Skull reveals the case breakdown for Wave 5 of the 6" Black Series figures (Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Jedi Knight Luke, Sandtrooper with black pauldron):

3 x Boba Fett
2 x Darth Vader
1 x Chewbacca
1 x Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight)
1 x Sandtrooper
Boba might end up turning into a bit of a common shelfwarmer if these bigger, eight-figure case assortments ship in good numbers, but it'll be worth seeing more Bobas to get enough of the fantasitc new removable-helmet Darth Vader into stores to meet the likely demand for the first 6" Vader.

Also, it's currently not known if this is just a one-off case assortment to accommodate more Bobas and Vaders and the assortments will return to the current four-figure case size with the next wave released.

Damn.

Well, here's to more years of Mattel running the license into the ground.

"Mattel has reinvigorated their collector offering with the new 6ꞌꞌ Total Heroes™ line for the gateway collector and the 3¾ꞌꞌ DC Multiverse line of hyper-detailed action figures for the more serious collector"

Don't make me laugh. Reinvigorated their collector offering? Are you serious? You had a much beloved collector line in DC Universe Classics that you mismanaged to the point of destruction, and then replaced it with this massively inferior product.

^ They're out of touch with their collector market. The article doesn't mention the movie masters lines, I hope they've not cancelled them.

An online reviewer shows how cool the new 6" Black Series Stormtrooper is:

^My, that is an impressively sized Lego figure.

I saw this on another board, and thought it illustrated my point well enough to share:

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

It'd be nice if 6" Black Series figures cost just $15 - $18 each. But with the hefty price Hasbro pays Lucasfilm for the license to manufacture Star Wars product I really don't expect it to be any lower than $19.99. I do wish we'd get a little more plastic in the 6" packages, though, for the prices that Hasbro and the retailers are asking. A few more accessories here and there.

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

Granted, this picture is a little out of date. The Marvel Legends Infinite series hit at $14.99 at first, but after about a month or so they went up to the $19.99 price point.

New Black Knight and Captain Britain adventures! (Clint and Tasha needed a break)

I found a little winged horse for Black Knight. It's a little small for him, but he likes it! "I shall call him Mini-Strider!"





The guys look back on some of their old adventures through my new Captain Britain books!



Finally, they both approve of my current desktop background...
