Vote Hasbro.

Mattel hates America.

I got my second case of Vintage Wave 16 on Election Day right after voting. I love that new Emperor's Royal Guard and the Old Republic Trooper...heck, I love 'em all, even the Walmart "Discover the Force" repacks.

How the Brian's Toys-exclusive Jocasta Nu and her accessories will be packaged inside their hinged box:



And a hi-res closeup of her cardback reverse:

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

Hobbit toys are starting to show up- I picked up a plushie Bilbo at Barnes and Noble today. Hawkeye has a new friend!



Hawkeye fell off my shelf and has black marks on him that I can't get off. No idea what the stuff is.

Rory wonders what hobbitses taste like, Precious?

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

I have been oddly absent from this thread for a while. Here's a few Mass Effect figures I got recently to make up for it.

I was wondering where you'd gone off to, man.

Nice photos!

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

I have to admit, I always found Jocasta Nu a rather lame character, even as a briefly supporting character. Not sure I'd give her a figure if it were me.

This is Star Wars. Background characters that appear for a fraction of a second get a full back story, an action figure, and a novel.

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

The excellent review of the new Jocasta Nu figure, which won't be available until January or thereabouts.

Obscure and dull character or not, her figure as well as its accessories and unique packaging kick all kinds of butt. I just wish Brian's Toys weren't asking exorbitant prices for her otherwise I'd be able to get a second copy to open.
