    Well the near three year wait is almost over. I finally ordered the Diamond Select Enterprise-E...but the First Contact edition! It will be here in a couple of weeks along with the Amazing Spider-Man 2 Marvel Infinite Legends figures.


    Long time thread readers will know my patience regarding the E-E. I originally wanted the "Nemesis" version, but once I saw the First Contact release, I knew I had to get it. I've read and seen so many great things about both ships, I can't wait to finally get it in my hands!

    I wish my picture wasn't so crappy. My camera is a simple Kodak point and shoot, and has a tendency to wash out pictures, as I'm sure you've noticed. A lot of the pictures for the action figure comic have needed darkened in Gimp before they could be used.

    Wave Three of 6” Black Series just hit retail down in New Zealand according to some of the collecting sites. If you haven't already ordered online then you might want to start keeping an eye out at your local stores. American store reports don't lag that far behind East Asia and the Pacific.

    Clint and Tasha brought the little ones with them.

    Plenty of nooks for naps!

    Iron Man wanted a nap, too. I don't think Cap or Fury will let him.

    "AND STAY OUT!!!" Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper stand guard until The Doctor returns.

    Nice. :) Although I don't think Iron Man was really napping per se. More along the lines of Tony sleeping one off.

    The first picture would make for a pretty good Facebook cover photo.

    I might do that. It's probably not wide enough, though.

    I think I'm about to get my hands on a Darth Plagueis. He'll cost a few bucks more than retail, but a carded copy just became available and given that I don't have access to a Disney Store this might be my best shot. We'll see. He's the only 3.75" Black Series figure I need so it'd be pretty sweet to cross him off the list.

    eBay scalpers suck.

    Very impressive collection you've got there! You'd make some people I've known quite giddy and jealous with those. Thanks for posting and sharing. Always feel free to post other photos if you like. :)

    The Little Debbie Barbies are cute!

    I love my Star Trek, LOTR, Hunger Games/Catching Fire Barbie and Kens.

    That's not even 1/2 half of my Barbie collection. I have the complete Holiday Barbie collection, the Hunger Games dolls, some Gone With the Wind Barbies, my original ones, angel Barbies, bride Barbies, some reproduction Barbies, Kens, and Midges. I also have the Star Trek Barbie and Ken. :)

    When I get around to sitting them out and taking pictures, I'll post them.

    Kira's Mom, have you seen the Divergent Barbie? I have the Tris and Four doll on order and hope to get them soon.

    Can't wait! Someone a little while back posted images of their Disney Barbies and the photos got some great feedback.

    I never saw the Bond Girl ones. I'll have to Google those.

    I think I can get a copy of Darth Plagueis. A fellow collector online has a near-mint carded copy that he wants $12 plus shipping and handling for, and while a combined fifteen or sixteen dollar price tag isn't ideal for a $9.99 action figure it beats driving all the way down to the closest Disney Store in North Carolina or paying eBay scalper prices.
