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

I don't have to leave until Monday, so I threw something together. I got some tiny sword charms today for the Black Knight jewelry I've been working on. Dane seems to approve of them...



I also got a Nightcrawler T-shirt. Get out of there, Kurt! It's too big for you!

It's better looking than most of his action figures, that's for sure. I don't understand why some of them are so ugly. Kurt is supposed to be cute!

That's one action figure head that SHOULD be able to come off.

I can't speak for the Dark Horse statue, but I know the Funko Legacy figure's head is most certainly.

Shasa Tiel (Ishi Tib from Jabba's Palace)

Barada

Vedain (Nikto Skiff Guard Driver)

Han Solo (In Carbonite)

That's the first thing I looked for I may never find out (barring a Google search)

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

There's been at least one Star Wars action figure where the head is removable and attaches by means of a tiny magnet. It's a Tusken Raider (Sand People) based on Attack of the Clones and the sequence wherein Anakin massacres and decapitates the entire village of Tuskens after his mother dies in their captivity.

^ I'm sure there have been calls by some for a Jedi younglings massacre play-set since the prequel trilogy came out.

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

No doubt.

They've attempted to keep the gore factor to a minimum in recent years. They did a Mustafar / "Crispy" Anakin figure in 2005 that had him dismembered, ripped up and burnt, but they didn't go as far as they could have because it was a mass retail action figure at least partially aimed at kids.

I can see why they would refrain from bringing out more figures with such graphic levels of detail

There was a Jango Fett, too.
