    So I picked up a few things while I was at Star Wars Weekend at Hollywood Studios when I was down at DisneyWorld. Now I don't really collect much anymore, well except Cars cars. I loved the first Cars movie, it was the first movie I went to with my son Ian. So since then, I collect Cars and I have a pretty sizable collection. The problem being, I have to buy at least two of everything I buy. One for me and one or two for my sons Ian and Aaron. I also love the Tractors from the movie, so I tend to buy more of those than anything else.

    Chick Hicks as Boba Fett & Tractor as Stormtrooper

    Mater as Darth Vader vs Doc as Obi Wan. I didn't find any individual Doc's as Obi Wan at Hollywood Studios, I imagine there was some. Need to do some research and find out, otherwise this is the only version I have him in.

    This was a Star Wars Weekend exclusive, won't be available any where else. Two pack of Tractors as Sandtroopers. They were $20 a pop, so I only got two. I think they are great.

    I have a few other things, but didn't want to make a huge post. I'll try and post them some other time.

    I've seen pictures of those. They look pretty cute, creative and entertaining for what they are, so congrats on your score. :) Larry the Cable Guy as Darth Vader. Who'd have thunk it.

    I have been absent from here for too long. So here's my latest acquisition, NECA's Godzilla:

    Loads of articulation, and a great sculpt.

    That Endor set looks pretty awesome.


    Marvel Legends has revealed their SDCC 2014 exclusive Infinity Gauntlet set. I have to say that Thanos, Black Bolt, Madusa, and Gladiator all look awesome. Comic Version Nebula and Star Lord are also included in the set, along with Death and Blastarr.

    This is going to be expensive to order from Big Bad.

    The new electronic talking Darth Vader just officially went on sale at Disney Stores here in the U.S. and that means that all four of the first figures in this line are now available for both brick-and-mortar and online purchase.

    Godzilla is rarely if never not cool, and the toys help demonstrate it.

    Three new Toys "R" Us-exclusive Black Series 3.75" figure multipacks are planned, including a Rancor Pit and a Cantina Showdown. The prices look to be exorbitant and will probably price many collectors right out of getting them (at least until sales and markdowns happen), but new product is planned and might open opportunities for some very popular and highly-requested figures to be reissued in new packaging.

    I'm pretty certain that my collecting is a major contributing factor to my remaining single. I spend way too much time and money on acquiring new things. I have enough versions of Batman and Green Lantern to scare away any potential mate. :lol:

    I'm breeding dolls around here. :) I have Star Trek Voyager action figures by Playmates and really need to set them out and take pictures so I can share them her. After all, this is a Trek board. :) I've had them for many years and they are still in their boxes. The only one I have sitting out is Chakotay. :)

    If you ever get the opportunity to take and post some images of your Trek stuff we'd love to see your collection. I didn't collect the old Playmates stuff from the '90s but quite a bit of it was very interesting and looked great for the era in which it was made.
