I don't have that... but I will seek it out.. It looks fantastic. I love Gamorrean Guards.. I remember becoming fascinated by them when they were in the Sarlacc pit board game!

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

The Vintage Collection Gamorrean Guard is most definitely worth getting! His secondary market prices can be a little bit inflated, but he's cheaper than some of the other ultra-popular and not-very-common figures in the recent lines.

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

Thanks for that tip.. and with the video, I must say I am impressed.. I think getting secondary Star Wars characters and background players is something I almost enjoy more thna getting major players. I will try to "score" a good deal again!

Here's that game I was referring to. Anyone have it?

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

The other figures in the new Darth Vader's Black Series wave assortment seem to be pretty great, too.



This is the first Wedge who's not in an X-Wing pilot's flight suit, this particular Skiff Guard has never been made before and this is the first new Ree-Yees from Jabba's Palace since 1998.

They all look fantastic. Especially the skiff guard!

Did they ever make a new jawa for black series at either scale?

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

Nope.

Not yet, anyways. There are rumors they might make a 6"-scale Jawa but right now it's just talk. I was hoping they'd have released a new Jawa while the Vintage Collection was still being made so they could put him on a classic "Star Wars" Kenner cardback with the original photo, but they had other plans. If Vintage returns I hope a Jawa is one of the figures they make.

If there's a 6" Jawa, then there had better be two in a box. Though after R2 and Rocket Racoon, I'm not getting my hopes up.

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

That's my take on it. Either put two Jawas in the box or give him a buttload of accessories or a droid of some kind. Don't skimp on the plastic, release a tiny figure and then expect people to want to pay $20-$25 for the little guy. The 6" Yoda that's planned comes with a lot of accessories including a classic Kenner-style Dagobah snake, so if they make a Jawa there'd better be two inside the box, a Jawa and a droid or a Jawa with a whole bunch of tools.

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

I agree completely. That's why I held the "6 inch" R2-D2 in my hands for an hour and didn't buy him.

They know that there are a lot of Star Wars character that are that size, so surely they should take that into consideration!

I'd like them to be daring and put a Jawa and an Uggnaut together!

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

Anybody here finding any of the Black Series Wave 4 figures (3.75")?

Snowtrooper Commander? Dagobah Luke and Yoda? Toryn Farr? The two Vintage Collection repacks (Bastila Shan and Dak)? Target stores have been (if they get them at all) receiving Wave 4 figures just one or a few at a time and not whole case assortments and stocking the small handful of new figures, many of whom are in bent and damaged packaging because they weren't shipped in full cases.

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

Anyone want a 6 foot 1980 Boba Fett action figure from Kenner? It will only cost you a cool $2750.

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

The life-size Kenner Boba Fett. Looks amazing. Costs waaaaaay too much, and that's the understatement of the galaxy.

I do like Gentle Giant's Jumbo takes on the classic Kenner action figures, though. They've really captured and replicated the spirit of what we kids collected and played with back in the day.

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

A 6-inch Captain Rex with interchangeable Phase I and Phase II helmets would also be a great idea. They're making new Clones for the 3.75" Black Series line based on the animated series (Commanders Doom and Thorn to name two) but so far none of the lead officers from the show are planned for the 6" line. Rex and Cody would be good additions.
