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

I bought a Hero Clix Black Knight. He's so cute!



"I shall call him...Mini-Me!"



I can't find any Black Knight jewelry, so I'm going to take off the stand and make the little figure (and his "horse") into a pendant.

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

A while back I got two copies of the 3.75" Prototype Boba Fett figure released as an exclusive mail-away offer in the Vintage Collection line. This is essentially a 6" version of that figure. I prefer Boba's actual Original Trilogy colors but the Prototype design is pretty cool and I like the way the very first costume tests looked. I hope I can score at least one of the new 6" figures and my local Walgreens stores stock enough of them.

That will surely make an awesome pendant, KM

Hal and Carol have brought home a little bundle of joy. Sinestro has one, too. He's not saying who the mother is, though:

I went ahead and made a necklace out of the game piece!



And also a charm made from a recent comic- Black Knight is so pretty in Avengers World #8.

Those look pretty great! You have quite the little gift for creating fun little necklaces and other trinkets out of things.

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

In honor of the Fourth of July, here is this little drama that happened with the Shelf Avengers this morning...





This was inspired by a Tumblr blog called "Memos from Nick Fury", from an entry where Fury has to explain to Cap that it was a joke. Steve doesn't get British humor.

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

LCS was having a 35% off all action figures sale for the 4th. I may have gone a little crazy. Here's my haul:


From left to right are: DC Collectible Arkham City Rabbit Hole Batman, DC Universe Classics Beast Boy, Marvel Select Falcon, and DC Direct Hal Jordan as Parallax.

That Falcon looks amazing. The character was cool enough already, but the toys and action figures of the guy are even cooler.

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

^It's from Diamond Select. Just came out a few days ago. Sadly, those figures are in a scale all their own, and are just way too big to fit in with Hasbro's stuff. Still, it's the only movie Falcon anybody made (beside Hot Toys, but screw that) so I'm really happy to have it. The figure is just as impressive in real life as it looks in the pics.

A baby tomato fell off the vine. It's too little for humans, but perfect for Clint and Tasha!

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

Looks like the upcoming 3.75" Black Series Sgt. Doallyn figure isn't actually Sgt. Doallyn. It appears to be the similar Jabba's Palace / Skiff Guard named Brock Starsher, but to most likely avoid the storm of nerdrage and complaining that would ensue had they printed the wrong character's name on the packaging Hasbro has decided to give this figure the generic "Jabba's Skiff Guard" label.

I kinda like it. It's not often we get a background alien or random guy that doesn't get their own unique name (and one that was never spoken nor even listed onscreen) and it's a bit refreshing. A brand new, never-before-made character? Call him Chaka Khan or Franken Berry for all I care. At least he's not the 63rd Clone Wars Anakin or Obi-Wan in a row!
