They remembered the tattoo, but they forgot the wound on his tail. Go figure.

Have you noticed and played around with Jabba's opening mouth feature as described on the underside of his box?

Yes, I know that didn't sound right at all.
Dirty minds... Is the speeder bike a new incarnation of the older mold with distinct pieces, or is it basically a solid piece? I'm curious cause I had an original speeder bike in my toy collection growing up, and I always had a bit of a soft spot for it.

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

It's all-new. They've never before made a 6" version of the Imperial Speeder Bike before and I believe it has some articulated, moving pieces. I don't think it's all one solid lump of plastic.

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

You know, it occurs to me that I've never really shown off my Star Wars collection here. I'll admit, it's not amazing. I have limited space, so a lot of it is crammed together inside a single display case. Still, I have some nice stuff.

The very top. There a Sideshow 1/6 scale Jabba, Bib Fortuna, and Salacious Crumb. Also are a few of the Unleashed statues. That was an amazing line that I really miss.


Interior top shelf is all the 3 3/4" figures. I've condensed this down quite a bit. I used to have a ton on display.


Second interior shelf is a more recent addition. This is for the 6" Black Series figures. I'm still figuring out how I like them here, so this is more of a temporary setup:


Bottom interior shelf is my Sideshow 1/6 scale shelf. Ah, these are wonderful. Though I've actually switched most of them out with superior Hot Toys bodies. That's where there's a little bit of skin color discrepancy. It doesn't show up anywhere near as much in person as it does in the photo, though.

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

You have a pretty great collection, man. The second photo is almost a Sgt. Pepper album cover for toy geeks. Needless to say, you have more than a few figures in these pics that are in hot demand and I have to give props to anybody who managed to find both the Vintage Collection Bastila Shan and Darth Malgus. I'm impressed.

Cool pics!

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

Yeah, I was surprised when people told me Bastilla was hard to find. I guess that's the one perk to living in a small town. My Wal-mart may be the last to get everything, but when it does I have no competition.

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

To this day the Vintage Collection version of her is expensive on eBay. You can get the multilingual Canadian cardback of the figure, but even that one can cost a buyer $40 or $50. The Black Series repack and repaint might drive the Vintage release's secondary market prices down a little, but seeing as the paint apps are different and each figure is "unique" it may not.

I just bid on a loose Starfox figure from the exclusive SDCC Thanos set. I sure hope Thanos's younger, sexier brother makes an appearance in the MCU!

My my what a fruitful hunt I had today!

First, here's the Walgreens exclusive Hand of the King Tyrion Lannister from Funko's Game of Thrones Legacy Line:

This easily the preferred version of Tyrion. It's what he actually wears for most of the show. It makes me wonder why the heck this one is the exclusive, while the regular release is his far less commonly seen armor.
What's the regular version, some sort of battle armour?

Yeah, this is the regular version. I think he wore this in one episode. Hardly the look I think of for Tyrion.


Picked up the new Earth-2 Batman yesterday. I love Batman variants, and this is a really sweet and unique looking one:

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

I saw my very first 6" Jabba the Hutt today at my local TRU, but since my first 6" purchases are intended as boxed display pieces and this particular Jabba had a dented and crushed upper corner of the packaging I had to pass on this copy and wait for the next ones I see. There were no 6" Speeder Bikes and Biker Scouts left.

My Targets just completed its toy department reset with the brand new, much wider Star Wars section complete with the new Command figurines and toys, Rebels gear and the huge X-Wing Fighters that are just big, solid lumps of plastic with no moving parts except for a removable astromech shell you plug into the droid socket, but no new 6" to be seen and just the same-old, same-old 3.75" figures that were there before the reset. Still, the new displays look pretty cool and it's an exponential improvement over what it looked like before.
