Yep. "Arena Battle" Jango from 2002. Some might complain there's no visible blood nor gore on that figure, but there was no visible blood nor gore when Mace Windu decapitates Jango in the film.

Yep. Ponda Baba ("Walrus Man") in the Cantina was the only lightsaber victim who bled, at least on the big screen.

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

This isn't specifically action figure related, but it's toy related. I couldn't help giggling at the description of #6 on this list, because the Anti-Terrorism Super Gun is such a classically cheap toy and because it's funny to picture a hermit crab shop selling them. If I have an excuse to visit Jersey, I'll need to visit Wildwood.

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

I finally bought the Greg Capullo Nightwing at my LCS. Simply awesome. I would have bought Batman too but they had one left, and he had a spotchy paint job around his chest and symbol so I passed. I'll just get him another time, also will pick up the Capullo Riddler at some point in the next couple of weeks as well.

In addition to Boba Fett, there's also an exclusive Agent Venom figure from the Marvel Legends Spider-Man line, and a variant of Tyrion Lannister from Funko's Game of Thrones line. Yeesh, what's up with Walgreens getting all of these exclusives all of a sudden?

Apparently the Wallgreens "Agent Venom" Figure is sold out.

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

With about 9,000 Walgreens locations in the United States I'm hoping that most of the stores get at least one full shipment of the Proto Fett. I'm under no illusions that it'll be the easiest score (especially given the local scalpers who'll grab as many as they can and then sell them for double, triple or quadruple the original price) but if I can find at least one I'll be satisfied.

Exclusives don't always fly off the shelves, but this one probably will.

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

lots of nice stuff. i imagine Malgus will be about as easy to find as Mara Jade or Plagueis. all the 6 inch Black Series figures look great. not sure if i'll get any Rebels stuff.

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

That repack of Starkiller is going to be hot, but he should be a bit easier to find than the 2012 Vintage Collection figure ever was.

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

Damn you, Hasbro! I have to admit that while the Bayformer incarnation of Drift is a wholly separate character from his IDW incarnation (IMO), I do like his visual design and the fact that he's a triple changer. What I can't fathom is why Hasbro is making two separate main figures in two different size categories that each have one vehicle mode, but there won't be an actual triple changer even though there are two triple changers who use a mold that would fit both.
