Did he piss off Boba Fett or Yoda?

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

Must have.

If that is a light-up feature of some sort it'll be the first battery-powered 3.75" Battle Droid ever. I already heard that a Boba Fett was going to be coming out as part of the Movie Heroes line but hadn't seen a photo of him until now. I just can't tell if he's all-new, a mishmash of old and new parts or a complete recycle, only with a brand new zipline rocket pack.

Marvel Select Amazing Spider-Man


Pretty darn good figure. The color is brighter than the actual film costume, but I don't mind it so much when the whole package is this good. I love that his diorama piece has pegs on the wall, so you can do a great wall crawling pose. Lizard should be here soon, too. I'll be sure to take some pics of them together.

Also, here's all of the Dark Knight Rises Movie Masters so far:


The Batsignal Collect and Connect is still incomplete, but it's shaping up really nicely. I can't wait for the last two figures (John Blake, and a mystery figure most likely to be revealed at SDCC) and for the movie, of course.

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

I don't know if there are any fellow MOTU fans or MOTUC collectors in this thread...but SDCC just revealed freaking Granamyr!!!! He's always been a favorite character of mine. He also happens to be the largest figure of the line so far.

New Carded Images of the upcoming Emperor's Royal Guard/Nien Nunb Wave of STAR WARS Vintage!

This wave is set to be released this fall(late September/early October?) and will also include repacks of four figures from Walmart's exclusive "Discover the Force" mini-line of Episode I characters.

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

Lizard arrived. He's just awesome. Incredibly detailed, excellent articulation, wonderful paint apps. Easily one of the best (non Hot Toys) figures of the year. I'm having so much fun posing him and Spidey together:

I'm especially proud of myself for using the packaging twisties as webbing.

I tried to find creative uses for metal twisty-ties on some of my STAR WARS stuff but couldn't come up with anything worthwhile.

Clearly, this means you need to buy yourself some Spider-Man figures.

Cool, I skipped Mawhonic and the Naboo Pilot the first time round as I wanted them on Vintage Cards.

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

These are all supposed to come out in the fall...possibly late September or early October, but who knows for sure right now. Since we're already getting carded photos it probably won't be much later than the official beginning of autumn before the first copies of these figures hit online retail and then U.S. store chains.

I've got to say, that Aurra Sing cardfront looks absolutely gorgeous. I already own three or four of her Walmart 3-D version from this past February but I'm gonna have to get at least one more of her just to have the awesome packaging.
