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

dunno if you know or not, but Black Knight also showed up in Avengers World #8. looks like he will be in future issues for the duration of the story.

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

It sucks that he was so important in the Avengers in the 80's and 90's, but has more or less been reduced to cameos in other titles. It's like Marvel doesn't know what to do with him. He found his niche in MI-13, but that title only lasted 15 issues.

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

i know. the Roger Stern era with Black Knight, Hercules, Namor and She Hulk was my favorite. i just hate that there are a half dozen Avengers books out and none of them have a place for guys like Black Knight or Vision.

MI 13 was such a good book too.

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

Looks like there's at least a small possibility that the aforementioned Walgreens-exclusive Boba Fett will be something along the lines of the big Jakks Pacific 31" figures that many of you likely see every time you walk into a Target, Toys "R" Us or Walmart. A 31" figure normally runs $29.99 or higher so the $19.99 pricepoint of the mysterious, exclusive Boba Fett might mean that it'll be a smaller figure similar to the 31" characters, possibly closer to 20" in height.

At this point nobody knows more than the bare minimum. The UPC listed for the exclusive Fett doesn't look like a Hasbro product UPC, though.

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

Here are some pictures of my dolls.
A Barbie size Princess Diana doll. The hair was really bad; I washed and tried to style it, but no success. I pulled the original hair out and put a vintage Barbie blonde bubble cut wig on her. I am very pleased with how she now looks.


This is a Midge Barbie in the Dreamhouse doll. I think she looks so proper and regal modeling her white gown.


A Barbie Twist N Turn reproduction doll wearing a teal gown with a big bow on the back. Front -

Barbie Campus Sweetheart reproduction and Midge reproduction dolls.

Nice! Congrats on such a classy and eclectic doll collection!

In Star Wars news, it's official: the Walgreens-exclusive Boba Fett item due to be released sometime late this summer or during the fall will be a repaint of the existing 6" Black Series Boba Fett, but this time in 1978 Prototype colors. It's basically a six-inch version of the Vintage Collection Proto Fett figure that was a mail-away exclusive a couple of years ago.

It looks pretty nice for what's essentially just the first Boba figure with new paint apps and a different soft goods cape.
And one of the best parts is that it'll be $19.99, the same MSRP of 6" Black Series figures at other store chains. Looks like there won't be a Walgreens markup on this figure like you see with their 3.75" figures.

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

I prefer the ones made in the 1960's. I have several vintage ones and reproductions of the vintage dolls. They all seem to have their own personalities.

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

I stumbled on a video on youtube of behind the scenes making STTMP. In it they said they built the rec deck set, used it for 1 day of shooting and tore it down. They also said there were 430 extras in costume in the scene.

I would really like to know where they hid the other 200.

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

I thought this might be a good spot to ask this. But does anyone know where I might be able to find a quality, to scale replica of the Enterprise D Dedication Plaque?

I have been on ebay, amazon, various memorabilia sites. I know of the eaglemoss version(it`s not to scale and it is made out of resin).

In my ideal world It`d be a Franklin Mint version. But anything of similar quality and construction I`d be fine with. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I prefer to have mine in the traditional color scheme, but that still looks awesome.

On a related note, here's a screen test video from 1978 of that prototype costume:

If ebay and memorabilia sites were fruitless, I really don't know what to tell you. Your only option may be to commission one made, which would be ridiculously expensive, probably.
