New Shelf Avengers stuff! Black Knight already has a mini Strider, and now he has a mini Garrett Castle.





Too small to stand up in, so he'll use it as a bed.

Just found Darth Plagueis at TRU. I'm under the impression that he's pretty hard to find, as Sith seem to be in this line.

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

Biggest Transformers related news out of Comicon is Hasbro's announcement they'll be remaking combiner versions of the Stunticons and Aerialbots for their Generations line. Presumably we'll be seeing the Protectobots and the Combaticons in the next wave.



From L-R: Dragstrip, Breakdown, Offroad (a replacement for Wildrider), Dead End and Motormaster (the mold for the terrible looking Voyager Optimus that showed up at Hasbro's panel at Botcon last week). Which means the Voy Optimus is compatible with any of the deluxe figures.


Meansor also has a 6th legends figure that forms the chest.



From L-R Skydive, Fire Fly, Air Raid, Alpha Bravo (in place of Slingshot) and Silver Bolt. Like the Sunticons, Silverbolt is a Voyager and the other four are deluxes.


Superion is also reportely compatible with the upcoming legends Powerglide figure that can serve as a targetmaster.

Just my guess but the Alpha Bravo and Offroad are probably a cost cutting measure meant to allow them to recycle molds for the next two combiners (Defensor and Bruticus) with Alpha Bravo being a remolded Vortex/Blades and Offroad being a First Aid or Swindle remold.

Superion looks good but I can say I'm not really interested in him. But Menasor and the Stunticons look really iffy. Motormaster is probably the best looking one. I honestly still think the Animated Stuntcon set they did for Botcon a few years back is still the best (with exception to Motormaster) in regards to showing off the individual character of the Stunticons (Drag Strip being like the Bride, Wild Rider as Michael Bay and Motormaster as a showman).

The hardest of the first 19 Black Series figures to find, for sure. Sith Lord. Expanded Universe. Exotic alien species. He's been the toughest figure of the first three waves for most of us to find at brick-and-mortar retail.

I've seen Mara Jade several times. I have yet to see a Darth Plagueis in a retail store. I had to get mine from another collector.

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

I think both of the combiner teams look fantastic, both in combined and separated forms. Motormaster and Dead End especially are pure sexy.

I do hope you're right about the Defensor reuses of those molds; I got into Transformers as a kid too late to have any nostalgia for Superion or Menasor, but Defensor is a different story.

Interesting. G1 Motormaster did have a mini-car with him that was a drone, so it's a cool idea to keep that. I'll keep an open mind. Was anything said at BotCon about whether the combined modes will be able to use any robot as a limb, or will the limb assignments essentially be fixed?

The limbs are interchangeable like their Scramble City originals.

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

Comic-Con begins today, and the big Hasbro presentation on their upcoming product (Star Wars, Transformers, My Little Pony and everything else under their umbrella) kicks off about six minutes from now, so if you're a regular visitor to any of the collecting websites I suggest taking a peek every few minutes or so beginning around 3 or so (U.S. East Coast time) for all the updates that will be posted.

Cool. I'll admit I tend to be nitpicky about one member in each team not being one of the original characters, but I'll keep an open mind. On the flip side, the fact that both teams have apparently replaced their most annoying member (Slingshot and Wildrider respectively) is kind of amusing...

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

Mezco has announced their own line of super articulated 6" figures

First out of the gate is The Dark Knight Returns Batman. And HOLY CRAP! This looks just incredible. I have never seen anyone make fabric look so good in this scale. If it translates that well to actual production, we'll all be saying "Mattel who?"

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

More great new figure pics of Hasbro Star Wars product from the floor of Comic-Con!

It's not anywhere near the most ideal nor a perfect lineup of new figures, but it's a major step up in quality from their product presentations in 2013 and earlier this year at New York Toy Fair. That 6" Wampa and Hoth Luke look amazing!
