Then this world is in deep, deep trouble.
It was a crappy, rainy day today.
Diamond Select's Klingon Disruptor in it's packaging
That disruptor looks great. I'm glad devices and weapons from the Prime timeline are still being made for collectors.
I think they have other things planned for later in the year, like phasers, tricorders, etc. This is the first thing out of the line IIRC. It does look pretty awesome.
I'd love to see a new TOS tricorder with authentic sounds and even a light-up display screen. We're way past due for a new one.
I was curious so I did a count. I actually have:
24 versions of Batman (counting Bruce Waynes)
53 versions of Iron Man (counting Tony Starks)
37 Green Lanterns (5 of which are Hal Jordan)
That's quite a few.
I kneel before you, Zod. That's damn impressive. You are truly one of the action figure masters and belong in this thread.
And the sad thing is, that's not even a fraction of my collection. Oh dear, I think I have a problem.
We both do. It's sadder than you think.
Whoops. Make that 25 Batmans. I just realized that I missed one.
EDIT: And 54 Iron Mans. I forgot the one in my Avengers display.
You are history's greatest monster.
Wait...DST already put out 3 different versions of the TOS tricorder with light up displays and authentic sounds. In fact they just re-released all of them.
Are you perhaps thinking of TNG?
You're correct. I am thinking of the Next Gen-era tricorders and not TOS. For some reason I thought they hadn't made a classic black tricorder in a while.
It's hard to keep track of a lot of these as the years pass. (*Blushes*)
I didn't bother with the "geological" tricorder, but I purchased both the science and medical models as soon as they were released. Like many buyers, I was a bit disappointed to discover AA had to cut corners with the medical handheld scanner, dropping the motorized spinning feature. It was ironic the scanner PlayMates released had a louder audio circuit. But other than that and the Munchkin pitch of the recorded voices (while the comm' voices sounded right), those props were, no, still are dand cool!
I have thus far only two Batmen, but then as you guys know, I've only gotten back into collecting action figures fairly recently, and I'm still picky about the figures that I get I have no doubt that my collection will grow
And....it's official. The U.S. will not carry any of the 2013 Clone Wars or Movie Heroes basic action figures.
Hasbro's formal confirmation doesn't contain any surprises but it's still a little disappointing seeing that Canada, Europe and Asia will get these and American collectors will have to settle for paying higher prices on eBay and trading for them (if we even have any international connections to begin with).
14 day notices from Sideshow for the Hot Toys Black Widow are going out. Not too much longer until she'll be in my hands!
Woohoo! Congrats, man. I can't wait to hear your first stories after you get her!
I thought I'd post this because they're the new Clone Wars figures no American store will be getting. Three are straight repacks with no changes whatsoever from their previous releases (Savage, Maul, Commander Cody) while the other six are either completely new or contain new heads or other body parts as well as paint applications.
I was actually looking forward to some of these but thanks to the staggering ineptitude of Hasbro the U.S. won't have a shot at any of these....not unless you spend insanely inflated eBay prices to get the Canadian or European figures.
Oh there shall be plenty of talking and picture taking, too. I do believe I promised some ass shots to make up for my Hawkeye insanity.
