Celebration V was awesome for announcements...I've been looking forward to VI.

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

It starts tomorrow! Can't wait for the first Tweets and other updates from the floor...as I said earlier there aren't any expectations of surprise product announcements but with Celebration you never know if Hasbro, Gentle Giant or one of the other bigwigs in the SW collectible business are going to treat the fans and collectors to something really awesome.

A figure we hadn't heard about yet? Previously unannounced Christmas season product? Exciting news about the Cartoon Network CLONE WARS series and/or the 3-D releases of the next films in the Saga (there've been occasional rumors that Lucas and 20th Century Fox might move up and accelerate the schedule of the 3-D theatrical releases from once a year to one film every six months or so, but at best that's been a rumor)? Can't wait! And even if there aren't any really special product announcements the pictures and stories from the floor of Celebration will no doubt be lots of fun!

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

Well, there is this that's already been announced. It's a very cute and unique take on Jaina, although if you ask me this version of her looks a lot more like Chris Jansing from MSNBC than other artistic and plastic interpretations of the character.

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

I'm due for some major collecting karmic reckoning soon. My luck has been way too good lately. I found Darth Malgus at Target today. Oh man. For the first time in a while, I really can't complain about my collecting luck.

Malgus?!?

Even I haven't been able to find Darth Malgus at mass retail! I had to resort to my buddy's toy shop for my copies of him!



The Force is strong with you! Congrats!

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

When I get home, I'll take a pic to prove it.

By the way, Km, there's people reporting that they got on Sideshow's Hawkeye wait list only a few days ago, and have already had theirs convert to orders. If you're serious about getting the Hot Toys Hawkeye, get on that waitlist. You have an excellent chance of getting one.

That's an...interesting...depiction of Jaina to say the least. It's definitely cute, not really what I'm looking for though lol. 6000 yen...what's that in dollars?

The Bishoujo statues typically run about 50-60 bucks, I think. They're cute but not everyone's cup of tea.

I'll only order if they have a payment plan. Can't afford it all at once...

They're not mine. I think the new Jaina is very adorable but just doesn't feel like Star Wars. Even if I collected these particular statues I'd skip her because she looks more like a character from anime completely unrelated to the Lucas universe and if I have to remind myself it's from SW then that sort of defeats a large part of the purpose.

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

Fastest service I've ever gotten from an ebay seller- my mini Black Widow arrived today. I only ordered her two days ago!



Awww. She's so cute. She'll be joined by mini Hawkeye by Saturday!

She's adorable! Congrats on receiving her in one piece. What's her scale? Is she just a few inches tall?

One inch, not counting the stand. She's tiny! And she arrived not only in one piece, but still in its plastic bag, unopened.

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

She's very cool. With eBay you never know if you're going to get a toy or collectible in one piece. I've had a handful of carded, packaged Star Wars figures sent to me in those fragile manila shipping pouches and they arrived mashed.

Since then I leave notes with the seller to make sure they put my purchases in a sturdy box of some sort with added padding on the inside. It never hurts to let the seller know your preferences. Most of them seem to honor them.
