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

That Dooku looks incredible. Speaking of Starkiller, is there a Juno Eclipse figure available? I think I've only seen busts or statues of her before.

I'm almost certain that Hasbro made a Juno in the 3 3/4 inch line back when Force Unleashed first came out.

Yup, here we go.

Yep! She was part of the 2007-08 30th Anniversary Collection line and came out in the final wave, making her hard to find in a lot of markets.

Tell me about it. I think the battle damaged Vader was the only figure from that wave I ever laid eyes on.

I never saw any of that final wave of TAC in stores. Not a one. I didn't see my first Battle Damaged Vader until a couple of years ago and that was at my friend's local toy shop.

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

I technically never saw it in stores either. A friend of mine that lives about an hour and a half away saw one, thought it was cool, knew I collected Star Wars, and bought it as a gift for me. He had no idea how hard it was to find for me. I was elated. He even said "Oh man, I'm glad you like it. I was afraid you would think it was dumb."

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

The final waves of all recent SW figure lines have been a pain in the ass. The last wave of Vintage is strictly an online exclusive(and overpriced if you ask me) and the concluding figures of the 2009-10 Legacy Collection(Jaina and Jacen, et. al.) were almost impossible to track down because they were Toys 'R' Us exclusives.

I can't remember. Did anyone post Hot Toys Hulk?

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

If the reports from the floor of Convention VI are correct, then Battle Packs are being replaced in 2013 by a modern revival of the old Kenner "Mini-Rigs" from the early eighties...very small one- or two-man vehicles that were never actually seen on screen but created out of whole cloth in a style where you could sort of imagine them being in the movies but "just off-screen." The new mini-vehicle sets will come with two figures apiece, such as Yoda with starfighter pilot headgear and a Super Battle Droid or a blue-striped Battle Droid Pilot and an Episode I Obi-Wan.

The first peek at the 2013 Mini-Rig line and some of its figures

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

Not sold on the Yoda mini-fighter, but the Trade Federation MTT fighter is enticing. We haven't gotten a new blue (Pilot) Battle Droid outside of the animated line in many years and that Obi-Wan is a reuse of the impressive Ewan McGregor likeness that was just recently released in the "Duel on Naboo" Battle Pack. Blue Battle Droids look really cool and I don't think we've gotten a movie-style one in close to a decade.
