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

I went ahead and ordered the set of Avengers minis, even though I already have two of them. I'll never get the rest otherwise! Luckily, it was cheaper than I thought it would be, and I should have it by Thursday.

Probably the 1970s Mego action figures in unopened, near-mint or mint packaging.

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

The all-new Mara Jade 3.75" action figure being released next year. Some people aren't responding very happily to her hair(a separate molded piece and not part of the rest of her head) but I don't think it looks bad at all. I really like this new sculpt.

The color of her lightsaber is wrong.

Maybe that's just the photo. It might look purple compared to someone with a red one.

Eh, I still prefer the original Mara Jade figure over the newer ones, but this one ain't bad.

I like that one. Whole lot better than the piece of crap from the comic pack a few years ago.

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

I have the Comic Book 2-pack figure that came with Luke. It was fine for 2007 or 2008 but even then she wasn't anything amazing. It was just a superior figure to the Expanded Universe one that came out near the end of the nineties, that's all.

This one blows all previous Mara Jade action figures away and then some.

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

The original 1998 figure had a good looking outfit, but she just didn't do much for me at that time. Perhaps some of it has to do with me not being into most Expanded Universe characters back then, but aside from being really, really hard to find in stores and a challenge to track down the original figure just didn't offer a whole lot for me.

She was the best figure in the short-lived EU line, though. A lot of people say the Darktrooper or Spacetrooper was the greatest one, but nah...it was her.

I remember buying her and Kyle Katarn. Those were the days; when you could walk into a shop and buy a Star Wars figure.

And for just $4.99 or $5.99.

In muh day, you could buy two Star Wars figures for less than $6.00--tax included. I did that every month when I was a kid.

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

Oh, yeah, when I was a tiny little kid of about five or six you could score some original Star Wars and Empire figures for just a couple of bucks each, and that was when they were brand spankin' new...not on markdown.

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

Found the Hasbro 6" Hulk! Yay! I've got all the movie Avengers now. Well, except Black Widow that is. Come on Hasbro, give us another wave with Black Widow, the Mark VII, and a Chitauri soldier. I promise I'll buy them all!

Also, this is the best Hulk ever made in this scale, movie or comic.

Oh, and one more thing:


Puny God.
