    Dane lost his arm again. Oops. :p

    His head comes off, too, but I'm not going to do that to him.

    Hair dryer, fix the joint, then dunk him in cold water. Works like a charm.

    Water both cold and hot can do wonders for action figure joints depending on what you're trying to do with them. Good luck fixing him, KM! I think you'll do it.

    :guffaw:

    Yeah, I'll have to try the hair dryer/cold water trick. But it's still kind of funny to see him lose stuff.

    Most pictures of classic Kenner droids get an automatic thumbs up from me. Nice. :techman:

    Check your local Target stores if you've got 'em. They're currently undergoing a chainwide toy department reset and some great new Star Wars product has surfaced (the 6" Jabba the Hutt and 6" Speeder Bike with Biker Scout being the two main examples), but with an entire toy department reset that means a lot of other cool stuff frequently mentioned in this thread might be stocked. Keep your eyes peeled, guys!

    I'll have some new additions to my Shelf Avengers after my birthday. According to my amazon wish list, my mom bought everything I had on it. :o :D :evil: Oops. No surprises. :p

    I saw on the Mego forum that Bif Bang Pow is doing 3.75 Flash Gordon based on the movie, and a lot of other merchandise too.

    Is that the Legacy Collection Snowspeeder Luke? I like him. They re-released that mold in 2012 but added a new grappling hook / ascension cable accessory and some different paint apps. Cool pic!

    My birthday goodies! The Marvel Select Hawkeye:

    [​IMG]

    I like the sculpt on this one. He's huge compared to the other Select figures.

    Marvel Legends Black Knight (from 2008):

    [​IMG]

    I think he's based on the 90s Heroes for Hire Knight- he doesn't use that shield in current comics.

    Wasp, with a tiny Wasp!

    The Black Knight meets...the Black Knight. Yes, the limbs come off.

    The Shelf Avengers- all of my figures except the new Hawkeye- he's too big to fit in.

    I think it's Snowspeeder Luke, rather than the 2012 release. Mine doesn't have any of the accessories. It's something my brother found at a car boot sale, then sold it to me, since he was buying stuff to sell on ebay.

    Either way, a very cool figure.

    I checked my local Target today. They finally have Wave 3 of the 6" line. But of course, they had every figure except the Stormtrooper. :( Can't say I was surprised, though. I thought about getting Bespin Luke, but decided not to. Turns out I'm not as interested in that variant as I initially was.

    My Target has lots of 6" Wave 3, but they're all Obi-Wan, Bespin Luke and the Han Solo carry forward. I've seen some new store reports, though, of at least a couple of collectors finding Wave 4 in their local stores (Anakin Skywalker with interchangeable "Sith eyes" head, plain white Clone Trooper, Boba repack and Stormtrooper repack).

    If I can't score a Stormtrooper from the Wave 3 assortment maybe I can find one of the Wave 4 carry forwards. There are no differences in the figure nor the packaging.

    For reference, here's the new Anakin and Phase I Clone Trooper:
