That picture is quite honestly the most badass thing I've seen in a couple of days. Applejack and Darth Nihilus make quite the combo.

Nice Malgus!

I have gotten so much mileage out of action figures riding ponies.

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

I just realized that Darth Maul riding Dashie is one I never got. That's the Legacy Collection version from 2009? Shirtless Maul(Training)? I have the very first shirtless Maul from the 2001 Power of the Jedi Deluxe line, but never saw the Legacy Collection update in any of my local stores. He commands a pretty high premium on eBay because he wasn't a terribly common figure.

Actually Maul is from the Sith Evolutions pack with Nihilus and Bane.

Just seen the latest Hasbro slides...

I like how despite there being separate entries for Mara Jade (Emperor's Hand) and Mara Jade Skywalker (Jedi) in the figure poll with the Jedi version winning they went and made the Emperor's Hand version anyway. Again.

Ah, okay. Thanks for clearing that up. The Sith Evolutions and Legacy Collection ones look so alike.

I think the Legacy version is actually just a repack of the Evolutions figure.

Not toy news so I apologize but I can't help it...Del Ray just announced the Sword of the Jedi trilogy that will be written by Christie Golden...so we're getting a Jania Trilogy!

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

It might very well be. I'll check one of the online figure archives and see if he is.

(*Consults archives*)

Yep. He's a "slight repaint" of the Sith Evolutions figure.

Just Breaking!

The first images of the 2013 green Yoda-themed packaging for the Hasbro Star Wars line:



It's essentially the 2012 Darth Maul design with a new color and character picture to reflect the upcoming release of Attack of the Clones in 3-D. What do you guys think?

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

That instead of TPM figures warming the pegs all year, we'll have AOTC figures doing it?

No...wait. TPM figures will still be there.

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

Hasbro reps at Celebration VI say they're scaling back the new 2013 product to avoid the same problems all over again?



I sure hope this is true. I don't want to see the exact same AOTC figures all next year. There are already some Episode I figures in stores that have layers of dust on them.

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

That was a good read. It's nice to know that Hasbro is actually well aware of what the problem was. While I lament the death of the Vintage Line, at least I can hope that this means we'll be finding more figures of the same quality in the main line. The Star Wars line has really split into two. The main line, which was mostly the kid's line, and the Vintage line which had the figure that the collectors wanted, albeit at a higher price. Hopefully, they'll find a best of both worlds approach with the 2013 line, and learn from their distribution mistakes in 2012.

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

True...and Vintage isn't dead. It's just going away for a little while. Hasbro's hinted pretty strongly they'll revive the line in the foreseeable future because of its incredible popularity. My guess is that it'll show up again around 2015 when the Original Trilogy returns to theaters.
