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

We were discussing 3D printers on another group and I pointed out it is only a matter of time until someone figures out how to merge a 3D printer with a vending machine so you can get exactly the figure you want in mere minutes with no toy company, no Chinese factory, no brick and mortar store and no on line retailer. These people aren't careful, they will "not carry" themselves right out of business.

CCC.

That was great.

I'm surprised Tony was sober enough to pick up and hold the bucket in the first place.

The Fantastic Four. But I don't have those figures, so someone else will have to do it.

I have another adventure ready to post, but I'll wait for tomorrow.

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

Four all-new 6" Black Series figures were announced earlier today:

1. Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi (Sir Alec Guinness)
2. IG-88
3. Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise
4. Clone Commander Cody

I can't speak for anyone else here, but a 6" Alec Guinness with the right head sculpt and soft goods could be one of the coolest Star Wars action figures we've seen in ages. Along with Emperor Palpatine he's one of the two characters I've most wanted to see released in 6-inch scale.

Of those, Obi-Wan is the only one I'm really interested in.

I'm in for Obi-Wan, IG-88, and Leia. I'm skipping all prequel stuff from here on out.

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

IG-88 could be something truly amazing if they put as much effort into the details of the 6" figure as they have all the different 3.75" figures over the years. The small figures by themselves always look awesome and resemble miniature replicas of the movie droid. There are so many tiny little surface details on IG-88's head that would look even cooler in a much larger scale, and I hope they don't skimp on the paint apps with this guy.

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

My Shelf Avengers have a new favorite game:




(poor clueless Dane doesn't get that Wasp was making a dirty joke!)

All fun and games until someone loses an arm:



Oh, Janet. Don't flirt with Dane. You know he still has a crush on you.



Captain Britain does not approve of Starfox flirting with Psylocke!
