Strange, but never dull.

I think we can safely say this is the first ever My Little Pony/Half-Life/This Island Earth crossover.

Ah, another one bitten by the bug. Once you start down the Hot Toys path, forever will it dominate your destiny.

Supposedly, Bespin Luke and Hawkeye are both supposed to be coming within the next 30 days. I can't wait.

I know. Those are some incredible looking pics, aren't they? I do wish this guy had taken some with the weather vane, though. That's how I currently intend to display my battle-damaged version when it arrives.

I've already preordered Avengers Cap and Thor. I also really want the DKR Batman DX but that is back ordered.

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

Rebelscum has high-res carded photos (European cardbacks) of Wave 4 of the Movie Heroes line.

Say what you will about this past year's Hasbro Movie Heroes line of figures for Star Wars...it's been all over the map from utterly craptastic to positively sublime...but these look kinda appealing. Most of them, anyways. A couple. The light-up Episode III Anakin and brand new Sandtrooper with electronic light-up cannon look like they're worth checking out, and the newest Battle Droid has a blast/fly-apart damage gimmick that might be a little bit of fun.

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

Speaking of Star Wars, I just happened to be in my local neighborhood K-Mart picking up a few things yesterday (Oct 19) and out of curiosity went to their toy section looking for nothing in particular. Sitting in the back behind all the usual pegwarmers were Starkiller, Shae Vizla, and Darth Malgus--the exact three figures I had given up trying to find earlier in the year. Just total luck being in that particular store at that particular time.

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

That's great! I'm happy for you...so many collectors still can't find any of those three Expanded Universe Vintage figures and Malgus was part of the third wave of the year all the way back in, oh, March. Sounds like someone might have been trying to hide them to come back later and pick them up, but that's a lousy way to do it. A kid or collector would be much better off hiding them behind some boxed vehicles or even in the girl's doll aisle behind some Barbies than leaving them on the SW pegs. Collectors know to check every figure on the pegs, even the ones at the very rear.

Congratulations! A whole lot of people are still trying to get those characters.

Clint and Tasha went with me to my sister's this weekend- had to keep them away from the dog, but they were very interested in the piano:

I picked up an extra Speeder Bike with Scout Trooper at Toys ”R” Us, making it my third.
