awesome. i'm a big fan of Golden Age characters. sadly, i don't think we will ever, ever have official Blazing Skull, Wizzer, Red Raven or Blue Diamond figures.

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

I've rekindled a childhood passion for Dragon Ball Z, and have decided to pick up some of Bandai's 6" figures. A lot of them are going for ridiculous prices on the secondary market, but plenty are still affordable. I love the interchangeable hands and faces that they all come with. As such, I took A LOT of pictures. Prepare yourselves:

Of course, our hero Goku in his Super Saiyan form:

"Ally to good! Nightmare to you!"


KA...ME...HA...ME...


HAAAAAAAAA!


Then there's his best friend Krillin:



Solar Flare!


Destructo Disc!


And finally for now, the evil (or not) Android 18:


The interchangeable folded arms was brilliant



What do you do when the evil cyborg plants a kiss on you and then goes off to murder your best friend?


You marry her, of course

No seriously, that's what happened.

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

Great new pics, guys!

Rebelscum is reporting that Wave 4 of 3.75" Black Series has just surfaced at a Walmart here in the States. That makes two different big box chains stocking at least some of the new Wave 4 characters. You might want to make quick stops at your local Walmart(s) and Target(s) and take a look at their pegs. With distribution and restocking being what they are these days, anything's possible.

My Starfox figure has joined the Shelf Avengers!






The rest of the photos are based on a very homoerotic series of panels from Captain America.

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



After some serious eBay stalking, we finally were able to get Aaron his April O' Neil. We've looked all over here at Target, comic book stores and B&N but to no avail. So looking on eBay, they were going for mostly above $35. We got lucky, a guy had one with a really beat up packaging and had a buy it now of only $20. The condition didn't bother us since we were opening right away.

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

Went to Target again today, and it was the same Black Series figures as before, no Stormtrooper. I know I could wait for the Stormtrooper from the next wave to show up along with he new Fett, but when I got home I was like "Screw it", and bought the case of four of the most recent wave (trooper, Fett, Anakin, Clonetrooper) to get it and the Fett I wanted. I don't care for the prequel figures, but I can just sell them online at double the... I mean, at a reasonable price.

ETA: Ok, my joke at the end there fell flat, as you can easily get those two online within a couple bucks of the regular price.

ETA 2: Oh, and I saw the 6" scale Jabba too. No Scouttrooper/bike of course.

No Wave 4 of six-inch Black Series here. I've seen the 6” Jabba, though.

At present no. I don't have any fodder to work with, wish I did, but Night Girl is there.

Yeah, that's why I asked. I have a soft-spot for the Subs.

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

I don't remember his specific number designation offhand, but he reuses the 2005-vintage R4-G9 mold from Episode III so I'm thinking he's from one of the two Entertainment Earth astromech multipacks released online in 2007.
