Toys out early!

For any folks out there who plan to collect, I saw the toys out on the shelf today at Toys R Us in Virginia. I'm not planning on getting any, but for those who are, it might be worth an extra trip to the toy aisle in the coming week.

Re: Toys out early!

I so bad want to get the 3/4" figures, but if I want a normal looking set I'll have to get two Spocks and two...Sulus? (Either Sulu or Chekov end up in their cadet uniforms with these figures, along with McCoy.)

Then there's the fun of trying to get the heads switched...

The things we're willing to do for Trek...

*sigh*

Re: Toys out early!

I am dying for the Enterprise from playmates to add to my collection. But I need to wait until the end of the month because I have other bills to pay first.

Re: Toys out early!

I don't buy the toys...but I always go and look at them in the stores and see how close they came to looking remotely like the actors.

I'll keep an eye out!

So - when we're talking "Toys" are we talking the hand props too? Phaser, etc.?

If that was a reply to me, I wouldn't exactly call modding a figure "playing with them".

I have display shelves. I prefer the idea of McCoy and Chekov being in their Enterprise uniforms rather than the cadet ones.

Re: Toys out early!

Hey...here's a question.

Any online sources we'd be sure to get what we want from?

I always went crazy during the previous PLAYMATES days, having to go to a dozen different stores to find all the figures I wanted.

Easier to buy online, even if it costs a little more.

Yep, and I was briefly tempted to pick it up, but ultimately declined. It does look pretty cool from the box pix. $29.99.

The communicator looked kinda cool, plus there's a line each from Kirk and Spock. In fact, if the Kirk line is accurate, it's kind of a very minor spoiler.

You might want to try www.entertainmentearth.com. Of course there's also www.toysrus.com and amazon.

Re: Toys out early!

Will these toys be released internationally? I still haven't heard anything about that yet. And I just looked up imports, they're ridiculously overpriced. The 3 3/4" figures cost 6.99$ apiece in the US, but in Germany, they ask 12,95€ for one which is MORE than double.
